Gangnam Busters – Best. Mashup. Ever.

GangnamghostbusterAs a blogger the most vital skill you can have, more important than actually stringing a sentence together, is the ability to spot cool shit on the interwebs and post it before it goes supernova.

I failed dismally with Gangnam Style. The first time I saw that video, it had only had about 230k views compared to the 476 MILLION it has had to date.

If I’d posted it back then holy shit. I’d be MADE! The traffic from Google alone would have launched this site straight into the stratosphere. But yeah. I watched it inbetween other stuffs I was doing at work and was like “Huh. That was weird…” and carried on with life.

Granadilla Lolly Price Skyrockets, The Tiger Loses His Shit

granadilla2There is no better feeling known to man than the deep-down happiness you experience after two hours on a scorching hot Cape Town beach when the Grenedilla Lolly Guy rocks up.

“GRENEDILLA LOLLIES!” he belts out in his hilariously legit accent, “A LOLLY TO MAKE YOU JOLLY!” And my God! The man’s right! You’ve never tasted a jollier lolly in your life!

In that golden moment when the ice-cold lolly hits your tongue, you basically don’t have a single care in the world. There’s just the sound of the ocean, the feeling of the sun beating down on you and the taste of granadilla heaven in your mouth.

Escape Monday: Insane Photos of Ocean Lava

SelwayandKale1Lava has always fascinated me. Something about it is so primordial – rocks in their liquid form, I mean shit, how badass is that?!

The following pics were shot by photographers Nick Selway and CJ Kale who claim they are the only photographers to ever enter the surf next to an active volcano to do lava surf photography.

The resulting photos are nothing short of insane. Two powerful elements merging and swirling together, duking it out to see which is mightier. Some of the pics literally look like Titans doing battle so yeah, if this doesn’t help you escape Monday for a few minutes, nothing will.

Escape Monday: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

4-10It’s important to have a “happy place”. A mental place you can retreat to when you’re in the middle of a particularly boring meeting / having lunch with the in-laws / at the dentist having root canal.

That’s really what the Escape Monday project is all about. Giving you guys some awesome images to file in your “happy place” archive to make life more bearable.

The pics you’re about to see are all taken at Cabo San Lucas, a beach in Mexico that has some of the most stunning rock formations I’ve ever seen. Find this place in your mind the next time the boss craps on you for mentally tuning out every time someone craps on you.

The Tiger Rocks The Daisies Chapter 3: The Saturday, The End

IMG_2257Phew! What an epic festival review hey Party People? Christ, feels like all I’ve been posting for the last two weeks is Daisiesdaisiesdaisiesdaisies.

Time to wrap it all up with my Saturday post and then I promise you’ll not hear anything more about this festival until next year rolls around.

Like the day before it, Saturday morning was a hoot. Myself, Peggles, Barbarian and Spu spent it all chilling together while the girls hit the Daisy Den which took at least about two hours, just enough time for us to smash a couple beers and ease ourselves into the day.

The Tiger Rocks The Daisies Chapter 2: Friday Super Mario

DSCF0455The first morning of a festival is the best by far.

All the troopers from the night before slowly start surfacing, giving one another silent nods of approval from across their respective campsites while the morning sun shines impossibly bright all around you.

First thing I did when I woke up was put my sunglasses on. Second thing I did was down a sachet of rehydrate followed by two liver pills and two Myprodols in rapid succession.

Lastly, I put the Tiger hat on and got ready to face the day though all the preparation in the world wouldn’t have got me ready for the insanity to follow.

The Tiger Rocks The Daisies Chapter 1: Thursday Rocket Fuel

altb61dcd58d1f012888162b07b13e525efThere were animals everywhere in furry onesies or in animal hats and I was one of them, rocking a tiger head hat rented from a costume shop for six-year old kids.

The baddest cat in the jungle, grinning like a maniac from ear to ear and laughing, just laughing my ass off the entire weekend.

Truth be told, from Thursday to Sunday, way too much awesomeness happened for one post.

The last thing I want to do is ram a 10 000 word piece down everyone’s throats that no one reads so instead I’m breaking this down day by day and hitting you guys with only the good stuff, that infectious craziness that makes festivals like Rocking The Daisies so awesome because that’s all anyone really cares about in the end.

bloc-party-050629-799747Excitement for this year’s Rocking The Daisies 2012 is mounting party people! Three sleeps and I’ll be there, cracking open a cold one at Camp Tiger and letting the good times roll.

So in this, the last instalment of my must-see bands, I am going to be tackling the bands you can’t miss on the main stage on Saturday.

Sure, there are other stages and other bands I could be covering, but as mentioned before, I can’t research every band at the festival so if there are other acts you think deserve some love, hit me up in the comments section.
