Geeking out on comic book documentaries

I am a bit of a comic book/superhero fanatic and find the whole comic/superhero concept really interesting. I love the stories, artwork and characters, and have been caught in a discussion or two about them as though they are real people. When a comic inspired movie opens at the cinema I am one of those…

A moment with…Petra Rolinec (8ties baby Photography)

In today’s technologically driven world, the existence of the point and shoot camera may be the best thing since sliced bread (only rivaled by the smart phone) for most of us. It allows us to capture memories without having to know too much about the mechanics of the camera. However, for some, those inner workings…

11th Annual Fête de la Musique

The 11th Fete de la Musique was held this past weekend at Botswana Craft in Gaborone. It was my first time attending this event though it has been going strong for some time. Therefore, I wasn’t sure what to expect or whether I’d enjoy myself at all but I went with an open mind. Entrance…

Rhythm Art Poetry at Alliance Francaise

At the beginning of last month I attended the Rhythm art poetry event at Alliance Francaise in Gaborone. It is a series of events that has been going on for a while now however I was attracted to this particular one because it incorporated Graffiti in it. I don’t know much about graffiti personally but…

2012 Ideas Expo Botswana – Recap Part 2

This is looooooong overdue, my apologies, life has been hating on my blogging hobby recently. This is part 2 of the Ideas Expo recap. In part 1 I discussed the presenters that presented on the first day, not all, just those that stood out to me. After listening to Kevin Aspoas, CEO of the Jupiter…

A moment with…tattoo artist Samara Lubbe (Skin Deep Ink)

I like most young wanna be “hip” people of today I have considered a tattoo at some point in my teens. However, unlike my braver counterparts, I never went through with it. What I did do was get piercings because, well, when you change your mind about them down the line it’s as easy as removing them….

2012 Ideas Expo Botswana – Recap Part 1

So I mentioned some time back on my Facebook that I had attended the 2012 Ideas Expo Botswana and intended to write a mini recap of what went down. I have finally gotten around to it! I took notes during the speakers presentations and although it won’t be as effective as watching their presentations, it’ll help…

Coolest Comic Con Costumes

The annual San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC) was held from the 11th to the 15th of July this year and since I just watched Spider-man last week, I’m feeling very comic-y (I know that’s not a word) so I decided to hunt for the awesomest costumes I could find on the Interweb. I only know a few…
