I Drive Dry, Why Can’t You?

Maybe you’ve heard about this… Maybe you haven’t. But death is no joke, especially when it can be prevented or avoided by just having some sense of responsibility. According to an article by IOL, 864 motorists were arrested while driving under the influence during the Easter Season… It’s about time that we start to drive dry.

I’m not saying that people shouldn’t go out and have fun, but rather that people who go out don’t drive if they have had a couple of drinks. I’m saying that we have all heard stories about things that happened to people while driving under the influence… Maybe you’ve nearly ended up in a situation like that, or been in that situation yourself?

What I’m getting at is the awareness, and the spreading of the awareness to help at least just one person have that ligh...

947Unplugged with Elvis Blue and Stuart Reece

This past Sunday was the third of the 947Unplugged events at The Venue in Melrose Arch – The 947Unplugged with Elvis Blue and Stuart Reece thanks to 94.7 Highveld Stereo and Real Concerts… No, this wasn’t an Elvis tribute concert, like the story Elvis Blue related during the show, it was an Elvis Blue unplugged session, with Stuart Reece opening up the night.

With Mark Pilgrim as MC for the night, the venue filled with fans and friends and a close, intimate setting, Stuart Reece and Elvis Blue played some of their best songs, with some new songs in the mix too. Despite having a baby girl only a few days before, Elvis Blue put in an excellent show, even coming back to perform 2 more encore songs for the fans.

Another awesome night, as expected thanks to 94.7 Highveld Stereo and Real Concer...

947Unplugged with Daniel Baron and Dan Patlansky

Last week this time I was at The Venue in Melrose Arch with 94.7 Highveld Stereo

and Real Concerts… And we all went wireless, yet again. Yup, I was busy having a blast while Daniel Baron and Dan Patlansky were rocking out on stage, unplugged (See where I get the “wireless” thing from now? No? Anyways, tally-ho-James)…

With The Venue sold out and a capacity crowd packed in between the stage and available bars, Daniel Baron opened the show with 6 songs from his album, “It’s Time”, with Dan Patlansky showing the crowd what he can do on a guitar… And trust me, this guy can play a guitar, while playing some songs off of his new acoustic album “Wooden Thoughts.”

You missed the show? Well, first of all, shame on you!… But, there are two more events are on the way… Next in the line-up for the 947U...

Rhapsody’s Sushi Workshop – Sushi 101

Every now and again someone comes up with an idea that smells a bit fishy. But when Rhapsody’s Brooklyn came up with this idea a little while ago, the fishy idea led to something genius and resulted in a Rhapsody’s Sushi Workshop at Rhapsody’s Brooklyn.

Last night I had the opportunity to attend Rhapsody’s Brooklyn’s 4th sushi workshop and I decided more people need to know about the awesomeness that happens at these workshops and hopefully ignite the inner sushi chef inside someone.

Rhapsody’s Sushi Workshop, how it works…

I was told to never play with my food, so I went Asian.

Sushi should be something fun, exciting and creative and that is exactly what master sushi chef JC Duarte accomplishes with his sushi workshops...

Ted Mosby 45 Days Speech and the end of How I Met Your Mother

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....
