IKEA Channels The Shining. Hmm...

To promote late night shopping at their Singapore stores and celebrate Halloween, IKEA Singapore decided to pay homage to Stnaley Kubrick's classic horror, The Shining. They also hid 13 items in the footage that, if you find, screenshot and comment on, can be yours. Happy hunting, Singapore.

Jamie Oliver & Taylor Swift "Bake It Off" To Raise Money For Cancer Research. Hmm...

Isn't it nice to see celebs using their massive popularity in aid of something good? These two look like idiots, but it's for such a good cause, I can't help but smile. Wish I could say the same for a few 'celebs' in SA who recently decided to raise awareness for cancer by appearing on the cover of You Magazine with 'shaved' heads... and by 'shaved' I mean photoshopped and by 'celebs' I mean assholes. Way to commit, guys. Shameful. Yes I'm talking to you, Lee-Ann Liebenberg, Shashi Naidoo, Poppy Ntshongwana, Zakeeya Patel, Elma Postma and LeAnne Dlamini... but especially to you, You Magazine. You like Photoshop so much? Well I've got a word you can photoshop in front of the YOU, right there on the cover. If you're going to commit to a cause, especially this one, commit. Without inverted commas.

Drop One In Your Toilet And Fight Drought. Hmm...

Drop A Brick is a nonprofit Indiegogo project that encourages you to buy an eco-friendly rubber brick filled with hydro-gel that expands 200 times its size when water is added. Putting the brick in the cistern will displace just under 2 litres of water, saving about 190 litres a week for a family of four. Imagine how much water we could save if every one of us did this in SA? So go on, head to your toilet and drop a brick. Heck, drop one in every toilet you see. 
  

Gertjie, The Baby Rhino And Lammie, Her Best Friend. Hmm...

Because it's Monday and you need a smile on your face :)

This Is Jenna And You're Invited To Her 21st. Hmm...

Meet Jenna. She's 19 and she's inviting the whole country to her 21st birthday party. To attend, all you have to do is register as an organ donor. Why? Jenna needs lungs and the more people sign up, the better Jenna’s chances of being at her own 21st are. Sure, this is a very, very clever ad campaign, but don't look at it for that. Look at it as a chance to really help people. Jenna is really sick, as are thousands and thousands of other people. An increase in organ donors could help everyone on the waiting list.. Visit the campaign at www.getmeto21.com or follow the hashtags #getmeto21 and share the hell out of it. One donor can save seven lives. Spread the message and see how many you can help save.
 

There Goes The Internet. Hmm...



Grumpy cat, watch out. This tiny ball of fur is out to claim the Internet for her own. Her name is Toast. She's a rescue. Most of her teeth had to be removed, so her tongue slips out all the time. Which has made her an Internet sensation. Check out her Toast Meets World Instagram and blog for more cuteness overload. 
  

Why Will.I.Am's Phone Watch Kills Apple's. Hmm...

I never understood what the point of a "smart phone watch" was if you still needed to carry your flippen phone around with you. Not very smart if you ask me. Thankfully, Will.i.am had the same criticism. So he designed a watch that can be used as a phone, music player, social media manager, etc... and a watch, of course. Sorry Apple, Samsung and every other tech company out there, this is how it should have been done in the first place. 
  

Perhaps Facebook's Most Useful Feature. Hmm...

It’s called Safety Check and it basically alerts you to check in and let others know you're okay in the event of a natural disaster. Clever peeps those Facebook peeps. As for the video, I have no idea why there's no sound. Maybe I should alert Facebook to that :) 
  

Kid Speaks 20 Languages. Hmm...

How the hell can this kid speak English, French, Hausa, Wolof, Russian, German, Yiddish, Hebrew, Arabic, Pashto, Farsi, Chinese, Italian, Turkish, Indonesian, Dutch, Xhosa, Swahili, Hindi and Ojibwe? Mind blown.
  

Thor Fights Moby Dick. Hmm...

The classic tale, or tail (see what I did there?), of Moby Dick is coming to the big screen next March thanks to Ron Howard, Chris Helmsworth and what looks like a shit-load of money.

How do you get otters to eat their veggies? Hide the veggies in sushi, of course.
  

Cooking With A Wall Of Fire. Hmm...

If you're a foodie, even just a little bit, you'll want to watch this... and probably subscribe to ChefSteps channel. These guys are awesome.
 

Just The New Foo Fighters Song. Hmm...

Good people, I'm abot to make your Friday even happier with the first song of the Foo Fighter's upcoming 8th studio album, Sonic Highways. It's called Something From Nothing. It's a bit rock and a bit funk and all the way cool! Can't flippen wait to hear it live at FNB stadium. 2 months to go! Enjoy.

Kevlar Helmet 1 - 0 Taliban Sniper. Hmm...

The luckiest soldier in the world.  

The 5-Hour-And-45-Minute Ad You Have To See. Hmm...

Okay, you don't have to watch all of it. Just skip around a bit and you'll find some magic in this depiction of a really, really boring 5hr45min flight to from Newark to SF on BLAH Airlines - a brilliant piece of marketing from Virgin America. Kudos to the brave client and the ballsy creatives who had to figure out how to fill the, ahem, "dead air." 
  

If You Have A Cat, You Can Relate. Hmm...

I think the cat did us a favour. Good job, Mittens. You're not an asshole.   

What Fast Food Burgers Look Like After 30 Days. Hmm...

I don't know about you, but I prefer to eat real food, made with real ingredients. Not sure what these are made of. First guess? Pure evil.
