Geeking out on comic book documentaries

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…

In my ear: Valerie June, Lorde and Allie.

It’s been a while since I’ve done an “In my ear” post and that’s mainly because I haven’t been putting much effort into looking for new interesting artists. I’ve been consumed by commercially successful artists like Drake, Eminem and recently Beyonce. However I still love the “underdog”-using quotations since some of these underdogs now have…

This particular video was released on Mothers day, befittingly so. Jada’s idea is to use the Red Table as an open and honest communication…

In case you missed it: Nandos vs Santam

Nandos has become the ‘Dennis the Menace’ of the advertising world in Africa, always putting out the most cheeky but funny adverts. Since their Christmas dictator commercial featuring a Robert Mugabe lookalike (that got them into trouble in Zimbabwe) they’ve gotten braver recently choosing to take on Santam.
