Happy 2013 From Your Tiger Pal!

fireworksHey Party People, how the hell have you guys been?! Things have been chilled out to the maximum here at SlickTiger Industries as you may well have noticed, but all that will change in 2013.

In fact, a motherflippin shitload is going to change in 2013 (the Chinese year of the snake) and I want every one of you to hold my hand, don’t be afraid, and roll with those changes.

You can fight a lot of things, and you should, but you can never fight change. Without it, life looses its lustre and our lives very quickly become stagnant and meaningless. 

“Be Brave.” That’s the SlickTiger mantra for 2013. That’s the slogan I’ll be living my life by in the coming year because holy sheeit guys, it’s do or die and if there’s one thing I’ve learned about myself the hard way, it’s that I’m VERY fucking bad at dying.

Each new year is a gift, a chance to start fresh, a clean slate. A lot can change in a year if you focus on your goals and stick with your guns, but I know I’m preaching to the choir here – if you read this site, you’re already a total badass.



You guys are the best audience an aspiring writer like me could ever ask for. Your praise, comments, insights, tweets and re-tweets are what keep this site, and my dreams of one day becoming a big-shot writer, alive and kicking.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank each and every one of you.

Them’s Fightin’ Words continues to grow steadily. This year I successfully topped all previous records I’ve hit on this site by klapping over 120 000 views in one year.

For a guy holding down a full-time job who bangs posts out in the evenings or first thing in the mornings before hitting the grind on a budget of R0 and an entire team of 1 man, that’s not bad.



I can only dream of what this site could be capable of with a few big cash donors, a team of content producers as fucking crazy as I am and a singular vision to be the best blog in the country.

I know if I stick with this site, if I keep the posts up and keep the good shit coming, I’ll one day be able to achieve that goal because every year that this site keeps fighting is another year the good guys win.

I’m gonna wrap this up because I don’t wanna keep you guys from whatever crazy plans you might have, but I just want you all to know that tonight I drink to everyone who contributed to those 120k views so yeah, wish me luck!

Happy 2013 Party People. Be safe, look after one another and above all else, be brave Winking smile



Your Tiger pal,
