SA'S GOT TALENT STARTS SHOOTING

Well it's started and the footage from the pre-auditions has started to roll in. DUe to contractual reasons I'm obviously not allowed to go into any details but I must say it looks like we're gonna have a hell of a show.

Thank the Gods we have 2 seasoned vets as presenters (who shall remain nameless) and from the bit of footage I've scoured through so far I must say it looks like South Africa does indeed have talent.

Great turnouts at Cape Town and Durban and so I'm told in Johannesburg today as well.

Now if only we could get someone of the magnitude of Simon Cowell to do a guest appearance on the show - it will explode.

Will reveal more if and when I'm allowed to.

The Ultimate Cinema Complex

My friends out there will be pleased to know that my faith in movie-going has been restored. Too often in the last four or so years when I've decided to get my lazy arse to a cinema the experience has been a bad one, a tirade of insults being hurled by myself at a restless "far too young" audience, a scratchy second hand film print that looks like it's been resurrected from a New York Grindhouse circa 1972, sound quality that a 12inch black and white portable Tv could easily duplicate - well I think you get it - generally unpleasant.

I've always maintained that the very reason South African cinema-going attendance is on the decline is due to the fact that the experience itself is a horrible one, with all the problems and many more that I've listed above, not due to the fact that's it's expensive, 'cos it's not. South Africa is statistically one of the cheapest countries in the world to go and watch a movie on circuit.

All that has now changed since I found Cedar Square Cinema Nouveau this last Friday evening - what a fantastic experience. The seats were huge lounger type numbers, soft to the touch and the behind, the print was brand new, the sound was indeed dynamic digital sound, the legroom was ample, the audience were sophisticated ie. OLDER and the staff were both friendly and helpful and best of all - IT WAS STILL CHEAP!

I would have gladly paid the full price of R44-oo per ticket for an experience as memorable as this one, but with the CLUB CARD I had, I managed to secure 2 tickets for that price - awesome.

So if you do reside in the Gauteng area and you are an avid cinema fan, do yourself a favour right now and make your way to Cedar Square Noveau for THE BEST movie-going experience of your life- hands down...

ADRIAN THIS IS FOR YOU - NEARLY WET MYSELF !!!


PG PORN: Squeal Happy Whores

"ADAM LAMBERT" THE FIRST FRIEND OF YOU!

Clever, clever boy - :)

DOESN'T THIS STUPID BITCH KNOW BY NOW HE'S GAY???

BUDGETS

Just watching these huge reality formats and working on some of them out here - the foreign budgets genuinely make me green with envy - All we're lumped with is basically a catering budget and are forced to produce an entire series of something "earth shattering" with that.

When will our local broadcasters finally wake up and smell the coffee and realise that these things take both time and money to nurture and really make them the spectacles that they become in other countries.

Any Comments?

A CLASSIC SLASHER FILM TO RE-VISIT

VERY FUNNY JOHN CLEESE ON TWITTER

The man is a walking comic marvel. Just to prove to all the naysayers that it's pretty legit. My sentiments exactly.

Found Location for Horror Movie

I think I've found the perfect location to shoot "The Lake" and conveniently enough close to home - now all I need is a cast - shot some stills and threw them together - lemme know if you think location might work.

Will shoot DVCPRO-HD

ZUMA ARRIVE WITH "SENIOR" WIFE

I mean is it just me or does this reek of pure unadulterated sexism? People are constantly berating us in this country for being culturally indifferent or even bankrupt but to quote Louise,"It was my culture hundreds of years ago to be subservient to men, to allow them to rape, pillage and pretty much take whatever they want, does this mean we should uphold such appalling traditions"

I think not.

C'mon South Africa - Isn't it about time we woke up and smelt the 20th century before leaping blindly into the new millenium. Can I get an o yeah?

H2 is on its way

For all you Halloween purists out there, I'm sure this will be the non-event of the year, but for one such as myself who encourages change and mixing things up a little, this truly looks awesomely original and resepectful of the original at the same time.

Rob Zombie is a one man horror renaissance factory and I for one will be a slave to his cult for a long time coming.

TWEET

I have just discovered today what is undoubtedly one of the most addictive internet and or media related tools ever and that is TWITTER. For any of you gossip mongers or celeb hounds out there watch in awe as your favourite celebs inform you of those most important life-like moments of waking up - telling you what the weather is like in their part of the world or even - indeed - whether or not they've just farted.

I kid you not - Will be becoming a fervent tweeter/twitterer or is that TWAT in the very near future - watch this space

Have a a fab eve - from a chilly Jo'burg
