The thing about the future that excites me the most, besides the talking monkeys and the sexy robots, is the cure for the hangover. Some mornings I wake up and I just want to pry out my liver with a spoon and get myself a new one – and thanks to the researchers at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine, that dream is a possibility.
Diego Maradona kicked off his 50th birthday celebrations yesterday in style, as selected guests were invited to his house in Buenos Aires to mark the occasion. PUMA presented Maradona with a giant cake in the shape of his favorite football boot, the PUMA King, and presented him with items from a new collection dedicated to one of the greatest footballers ever to have played the game.

In a shockingly innovative move, Dutch clothing company Suit Supply has released an ad campaign showing ruggedly handsome men wearing suits while in the company of half-naked women. Now everybody’s buzzing about how sexist the campaign is, which I’m sure has Suit Supply’s advertising department terribly upset. Maybe they’ll ask some half-naked women to calm them down. Careful, it gets quite steamy after the jump…
I was not aware that muffin’s had an ass, let alone a tail, or any other body part for that matter. Sure, humans do get ‘muffin top’ when their jeans are too tight, but I had never imagined it the other way around. Nonetheless, the Spar on Regent Road, Sea Point seem to be ahead of all of us and are now selling just the ass part of a muffin. Amazing!
It’s so nice that seasons change and that the year is broken down into different sections. Because with every section comes a new Victoria’s Secret photo shoot with South Africa’s very own Candice Swanepoel. God bless you, Candy x

Parking is a well-known bugbear for the citizens of the greater Cape Town Metropole, some might even say the situation is reaching a critical mass. But the men and women of of the Northern Suburbs are putting on a masterclass of guile and smarts in the parking department. Thanks to Mike and Mike’s brother for sending in the evidence.
God, I love living in the future. Don’t you? Four driverless, electric vans arrived in Shanghai yesterday after a 13,000km ‘test drive’ from Italy. They had no maps, and they stopped to pick up a hitchhiker on the way.
There are some products that offer depressing insight into the kind of marketplace we’re living in today. Sandwiches that use chicken for bread; drinks that give teenagers heart attacks; fixie bikes. But every now and then a product comes along that tells you it’s all going to be okay – and this, friends, is that product.
I wonder how long this fellow had been wearing his nice green T-shirt around his village, without anyone batting an eyelid. Years, I’d say. And they probably still don’t know that old Xqa! on the drums is wearing a very humourous Irish T-shirt. Better yet, a T-shirt with the foulest of words written on it..
CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA – 27 October 2010: Shereen Barnes joined hundreds of protestors and members of the media in a march from Kaizergracht to Parliament to protest against the proposed Protection of Information Bill and the setting up of media tribunal in Cape Town, South Africa on 27 October 2010. Protestors also marched to […]
How many times have you heard, “Not tonight, I have a headache.”? It is possibly one of the greatest cliches of all time…probably due to the fact that every single person has experienced this in one form or another.
But do not fear my fellow lovers, it seems that there is hope after all, well maybe not hope, but rather an explanation.

The annual list of most corrupt countries in the world has been released by Transparency International, and South Africa didn’t do all that badly, as these things go. I mean, 54th out of 178 countries? It’s not the kind of thing you put up on your fridge or anything, but it’s not bad.
If any of you spend even a mild amount online and have a Facebook and/or Twitter account, the new MINI ‘Connected’ system which is built into the new MINI Countryman (launches late November I’m told) will blow your head off. So 2oceansvibe Radio in the car is one thing, but how can you watch news feeds whilst driving? Not to worry, the car reads it out for you! Video after the jump!

Thousands of politically-minded Kiwis have come out in protest to prevent production of the Lord of the Rings prequel, The Hobbit, from moving out of New Zealand. I understand completely – I went through the same thing when my parents made me stop wearing my wizard outfit to school.
PORT ELIZABETH, SOUTH AFRICA – 23 October 2010: 905 bikini-clad women formed a heart shape while taking part in the Nashua Largest Ever Bikini Photo Shoot at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on 23 October 2010.

There is a lot of 3D talk at the moment and, personally, I don’t know if these 3D TV’s are gonna fly. I just can’t get into the vibe of sitting in The Safe House with silly 3D glasses on. Especially watching TV! But looking at a book, now that’s different. That’s probably why one man’s entrepreneurial spirit has manifested itself into the most useful of 3D offerings. I give you 3DD – a 3D book of boobs! (NSFW)
Simon Burrow writes this book review from his home in Menerbes, somewhere in the Luberon Valley – Provence: Long ago when men were men, ladies were ladies and journalists were real wordsmiths, Normal Canale was at his peak.
In a career spanning five decades, Canale was a pioneer tabloid journo. Expert in rugby and boxing (he called it the ‘sweet science’), in particular, Norman Canale sold newspapers. Canale lived with the characters, he ate and breathed them. He drank with them.
We love mary jane. Spider-Man loves Mary Jane. We love Spider-Man. In particular, we love Emma Stone, the angel from Zombieland and Superbad, who’ll be playing Peter Parker’s love interest in the rebooted Spider-Man film.
There are some pictures of her. You might want to keep your web shooters handy.

|Steve Carell and Chris Rock's Special Auction Items Pt. 2|
What could be better than having Chris Rock verbally abuse your ex for breaking up with you? Nothing! Especially when he begins with, “You dirty motherf_ _ _er…”

For those of you who weren’t aware, the Whisky Live Festival is the biggest of its kind in the world. That’s how much we dig our whisky, here in South Africa. It runs from Wednesday 3 to Friday 5 November in Cape Town, and Wednesday 10 to Saturday 13 November in Johannesburg. You have no excuse to miss this incredible event – especially when we are giving away massive daily prizes and VIP packages, courtesy of Jack Daniel’s! Follow the link to find out more..
This is hysterical. The US ‘Parents Television Council” (God help us all) has slammed the latest US GQ Magazine for publishing pictures which “border on pedophilia.” And I assure you it’s not to do with the cover! The gaggle of bored ultra-conservatives were referring to a photo shoot the legendary magazine did with the cast of Glee, a high-school-musical type series that is probably also showing on local screens (I wouldn’t know – but can confirm it is on Apple TV). Follow the link for more on the story + all the pics..
The sudden appearance of a crocodile onboard a routine flight in the Democratic Republic of Congo led to the plane crashing, killing 20. Only one passenger survived the crash, along with the crocodile; the crocodile was then killed with a machete. We’re not sure why this movie hasn’t been made yet.
A massive thank you to GQ for bestowing the Best Dressed Man In South Africa award. We touched on it earlier on in the week, but didn’t get a chance to get the pics up (for my mum to see, to tell the truth). You can check them all out in the November issue which has dual covers – one of Christina Aguilera, and one of football genius, Jose Mourinho. So, in the meantime, here is one they took as I realised my fly was down. Whoops!
