Little Darth? Pssh... Meet Little Thor! Hmm...


Those clever fellas at Marvel have just spoofed one of the latest and most loved VW ads ever (Little Darth) to perfection to promote their upcoming epic film, Thor! Awesome.

John Cleese Is Going Down. Hmm...

Down south that is. See, the Monty Python alum was here last year shooting Spud, no doubt earning some much needed cash to pay for his 3rd divorce. Clearly it wasn't enough since he's on his way back to, well,  get us to laugh at his misfortune, regaling us with all manner of stand-up for between R350 and R500 a seat. 

The perfectly named "Alimony Tour" will be in Joburg and Cape Town mid to late October. Tickets are available from Computicket

Seeing With Your Ears. Hmm...


The Nightjar is a new mobile game which places the player alone in space and challenges them to escape using only sound. Voiced by Sherlock Holmes star, Benedict Cumberbatch, the app uses 3D sound to bring the space horror elements of the story dramatically to life and freak you the hell out. It's just the first in a series of "sensory experiences" Wrigley's Gum wants you to well, experience so that you'll have an understanding of their new product: Wrigley's 5 Gum. Check out their site: http://www.the5experience.co.uk/

Music Pro's Making Mix Tapes. Hmm...

http://www.mixed-tapes.nl/


Just one problem: They haven't finalised licensing for South Africa yet, soooo... unless there's a way to trick the internet into thinking you live in, saaay... Sweden, this mix tape site is a lot like that girl you like just wanting to be friends - a terrible, terrible tease. 

The Superhero Alphabet. Hmm...

The Classics Boiled Down. Hmm...





























Awesome minimalist posters designed by Matt Owen. I kinda want all of them...

The Ketchup Cookbook App. Hmm...

It's no secret that I'm a bit of a ketchup addict. I've angered many a chef, friend and family member "enhancing" my food with dollops of sweet, sweet tomatoey goodness. So when my buddy Louise sent me this link, I almost lost my shit.
