Every now and again I’d watch a show on TV and notice something that stands out to me. Last night I was watching the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother – Season 8 Episode 20… The episode took place mainly in McLaren’s and sees Ted and Barney’s future versions attempt to persuade present day Ted to go see Robots Versus Wrestlers. Marshall and Robin have a dance-off and Ted Mosby gives a speech to his future wife… The “Ted Mosby 45 Days Speech”
Over and above the antics that the group get up to during the episode, Ted realises that he is actually all alone. Barney and Robin are busy planning their wedding and Marshal and Lily are busy with their new lives as parents. Hang on to the roller-coaster, I’m going deep here.... Read More

It’s not every day you just decide to do a Guinness world Record, especially something that requires you staying awake for long periods of time, just ask @BraaiBoy about his world record.

You know how it goes with a Disney movie, the damsel in distress needs a proverbial(and sometimes literal) knight in shining armour to save her. The two fall in love and they live happily ever after, right? Have you ever wondered what happens after happily ever after?
I happened to stumble onto this YouTube video, by a user who goes by the name of “Paint” . In his video he focuses on the story after the happily ever after for Pocahontas, Ariel, Belle and Jasmine.
This video thoroughly made my morning, check it out here:

It’s been 4 years since we’ve seen Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, John Cho, and Bruce Greenwood in a movie together, who return in the second of the new Star Trek series. The latest Star Trek “Into Darkness” movie, directed by J. J. Abram, will be arriving in cinemas on May 17th across the US.
The plot of Star Trek Into Darkness follows on from the previous Star Trek movie, where “After being called back home, the crew of the Enterprise find a seemingly unstoppable force which has attacked Starfleet and left Earth in chaos. Captain Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are tasked with leading the deadly manhunt to capture the party responsible and settle an old score.” – Wikipedia

There’s no doubt that 2012 was a year to remember, for good or for worse. Who thought we would see 2013, with the Mayan apocalypse conspiracy and all that? Lying in bed last night and unable to sleep and awaiting the beginning of the work starting on the 7th of January, it got me thinking about the year that had passed and what some of the highlights and lowlights were for me personally, and for everyone as a whole. Some events in the 2012 may have affected, for better or worse, some more than others.
I started thinking of my great-grandmother, one of my good friends Tegan and another friend of mine Jamin who passed away this year… All sad memories... Read More
The new album by Crash Car Burn was released on the 22nd of October 2012, and if you haven’t already got a copy, I’d strongly recommend that you do! Not sure who CrashCarBurn is? Do song names like “Twisted”, “Serenade”, “Skin Versus Bone” or “Heroes” ring any bells?
The new single “The Light” was released and made available as a free download via the Crash Car Burn Facebook page and a mobile link on the 6th of October. The catch? Like the Crash Car Burn Facebook Page and send a tweet. What’s the harm in that? And in my opinion a very cool idea and clever way to promote the launch of the CD before it’s released. The new album is considered one of the band’s best albums to-date and has that typical Crash Car Burn sound to it.
The band is launching the album at ... Read More

Daniel Baron was born in Johannesburg and has been singing from a young age. He taught himself to play the drums, bass and piano. His ear for music and wide spectrum of music genre’s that influenced him while growing up has helped him become a skilled singer/songwriter.
