I went up to Joburg for the weekend, It was my mom's 60th. Every time I go back I'm sure that the traffic has gotten worse. Its insane. Becuase of this, I figure, they are building the Gautrain (Which has flattened 2 of my friends houses and threatened mine). Now South Africans are a fairly negative group of people, so of course everyone is complaining bitterly about the train. But what I think is "Look at the traffic idiots" or course we need a a train. In fact I really can't see it failing. People in RSA really need to stop having such a loser mentality, it's just silly.

Claremont seems like a real shitty place to go out

This really shouldn't be such a short entry, but I don't have the time to write more right now. But I was just thinking how shitty Claremont is as a place to go out. I mean come on you're in Capetown and you decide to repetitively go out to this same boring sterile cultureless mall hole? Why?

Profile Picture

I had to post this so I could get a profile picture. Seems like a bit of a hack.

Acid Blues

I went to Long street last night. At the carnival court backpackers I saw Acid Blues playing, like they do every Friday. It was the best live gig I had seen in a long time, gave me faith in live music again. I bought on of their CDs, something I haven't done in about 3 years or something. The drummer is really old. He told one of my friends that he was playing drums before Hendrix picked up a guitar. When he plays it's always with a really straight back, real stiff. They have a website but I can't remember what it is now.

Patti Smith

So Patti Smith is awesome. Anyone who doesn't know this should go find out why. But you can't listen to it and have sex at the same time. It just doesn't work, I think it's the same with jazz, it's just too distracting. In fact pretty much anything that has A-Tonal (Is that the right term?) elements doesn't work when you're trying to get it on. Some of my friends say the same thing about listening to music when they're working.

Overqualified has a really great post this week. I put it up on the wall of my house. Find it Here .

I haven't written in a year, so I decided to start a blog. I don't really have anything to write about.
