I told you guys about them a little while ago and I'm happy to report that thanks to their ever-increasing popularity (which means they'll hopefully be around for a long, long time) The Drums are now the new Beach Boys, sort of. Makes me wish I lived near the ocean. Sigh... Go get their album. You'll smile all day. Perhaps all night as well.

Today was filled with joy, laughter, a yummy coffee and a delicious choc-chip cookie from Wolves, two birthday shindigs - one including quite a lot of babies, a sandpit and some file-sharing while the other was attended by slightly more mature adults along with good reserves of cake, beer, pasta, good friends, walks down memory lane and balloons that look like giant breasts when inflated. Oh, and these cool Polaroids thanks to my iPhone's new Shake It App.

Bioscope is officially back! From the lovely people who brought you Arts On Main comes one of the coolest attractions the new and ever-improving city of Joburg has to offer. Yes, good people, every day is another chance for you to relive the awesomeness that is old-school cinema. The Bioscope, located on Fox Street downtown, screens documentaries, indie movies, retro TV shows, chop-socky flicks, you name it. To add to the radness, they even cater accordingly. Noodles are supplied for kung fu movie nights, TV dinners for 80's TV show screenings. You get the idea. Now, I haven't been there yet but I plan to go as soon as humanly possible. I suggest you do the same. Gotta love the new Injozi!

I'm not sure which agency did this, if any or if UNICEF just took it upon themselves to roll this out but it's a clever sequel to the uber-successful Droga5 TAP PROJECT. This time around, dirty water, riddled with all sorts of diseases and bacteria, was brought to NYC, bottled and placed in vending machines for purchase to highlight the predicament of millions of people around the world who don't have clean, safe drinking water.
Now, I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the US Govt has a strict "no importing of diseased water" policy. So I'm not so sure these guys are being a hundred percent honest here. It looks like they just bottled muddy water and simply labeled them as diseased. Which is fine, I guess. It gets the point across. Add to that the fact that the entire campaign seems to be hosted online cleverly using someone's personal Apple Mail site, it's clear there's probably no budget whatsoever on this project. Which makes it all the more impressive really.
