Online education in South Africa has joined a global revolution with Apple’s latest decision to open up iTunes U Course to another 70+ countries from around the world.
Grammy Award winning Band “Switchfoot” will perform in South Africa for the first time in August, and 2oceansVibe Radio is proud to announce we’re on board as a partner! Switchfoot are all-round nice guys who love to surf, have sold millions of records, and are known for their incredible energetic live performances during their sold-out [...]
We were lucky enough to be featured in the Lifestyle section of today’s Sunday Times, in a piece written by everyone’s favourite columnist, Lin Sampson. In the article, entitled “The End Of Radio As We Know It,” Lin confirms that Tim Harris, the DA’s Shadow Minister of Trade & Industry, is the only person in politics that one [...]
I’ll be honest, my friends and I have been practicing the climbing-out-of-the-pool-with-water-pouring-down-our-faces men’s fragrance commercial ripoff for quite some time. Now whilst GQ allowed a bit of indulgence, it was only when Kulula came to the party – allowing such ridiculousness – that the years of training finally paid off! Morne Van Zyl took the [...]
Ja, so basically I surprised even the great Silwood Cooking school, with my orgasmic roast summer vegetable dish. But I can’t take all the credit for it – as it was sent through from France, by Mother Dearest. Click link for the video (and recipe), in case you missed it. Fans of Idols’ Adeline will be quite pleased with this too..
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!
If you managed to grab today’s Business Day, have a squizz at page 12, which features a truly informative article by Thabiso Mochiko about 2oceansvibe Radio and our union with MWEB. And if you didn’t manage to get that, you can check out the online version here.
That’s what they’re calling it over at itweb.co.za. Round these parts we call it ‘logical.’ So does Howard Stern, who is making the move from satellite radio over to internet radio. And so are a number of big players in SA! Not to mention MINI, who are launching the ‘Countryman’ soon, which comes with built-in Internet Radio!
Not the worst thing to be called – ‘Maverick,’ is it? I’m absolutely fine with it, truth be told. ‘Elegantly Wasted?’ – hey, I can work with that too. We’re big INXS fans here at 2oceansvibe anyway. What a dick (download 2-page PDF here) You know, it’s funny, that shoot took about 20 minutes. Reason [...]
Well it is very satisfying to know that Heat magazine has our back! For those of you who don’t tune-in to Heat Magazine, we suggest you do! You would have missed another Jack Parow Hosh-ja moment! CLICK HERE FOR HEAT MAGAZINE ARTICLE ABOUT 2OV RADIO I see they also picked up on the rumour that [...]
You ever heard a blogger say, “You want impartiality? Read a newspaper”? Ja, well, if you want impartiality, don’t read a newspaper. At least, don’t read the New Age newspaper. What’s that? You haven’t heard of the New Age newspaper? No, that’s quite alright. You’re not expected to know about it. They themselves confess that [...]
Wine fans throughout the country are urged to pick up the latest copy of Wine Magazine and to cast their eyes over to the back page of this, the April issue. That is where you will find us, in all our glory, raising a toast to you. You should find the interview suitably amusing. * [...]
Look, I’m aware that I give “hope” and that I’m a “role model” to many hot men and women around the world, but it never struck me that I was a “leader” as well. Hell, that’s bloody marvelous, man! Get yourselves a copy of the latest issue of Leadership Magazine and quietly enjoy our little [...]
I found myself at the University of Cape Town on Friday afternoon, assuming the role of guest speaker at some kind of business strategy thing they were doing. They wanted the whole vibe and nothing but the vibe. So that’s what I gave them.. I wore my coolest T-shirt which allowed me to blend in [...]
It’s a massive week for 2oceansvibe and Butlers this week. Not only has the much anticipated “Rotherham” pizza been launched on the menu, but fellow 2oceansvibe sponsor, NoMU spices, is also featuring on the menu. That’s right, for the first time ever, peri-peri will be available as a topping on your pizza – and it’s [...]
Well I suggest you do – because there is something of a surprise waiting for you on board. That’s right, my lover – over 100,000 copies of the Mango Airlines in-flight magazine, “Juice,” have been printed and they are yours to keep! Why would you care about the Mango Airlines in-flight magazine? Let me show [...]
In November I alerted you about the Seth Rotherham feature in the ELLE Magazine. I didn’t publish it in full on these pages, as the magazine was still in circulation. It is now off the shelves and has coincidentally become one of their most successful issues ever. Weird.. especially with that issue of YOU Magazine [...]
I put “on it’s head” in inverted commas to indicate a quote, presumably by someone with authority. Given the topic of wine pairing, one would hope, at the very least, that the quote came from someone within the food or wine industry. In truth… it didn’t – I made it up. Yup, that’s right. Much [...]
No I’m not joking. It’s got Lily Allen on the cover and page 78 is all mine! Feel free to tear it out and rub it all over your body. God knows, you won’t be the first.. I’ve been doing it for days! Besides photos including that now iconic pic of me as a child, [...]
The cries from the 2oceansvibers out there who missed the 2oceansvibe feature on SA’s number one TV magazine show, Top Billing, were overwhelming. I knew I had to SOMEHOW get it onto the web for you to see! Just to run you through the process – I recorded the show on my PVR decoder at [...]
Regular readers will know that there has been all sorts of Top Billing activity over the past week or so. Their crew joined us on the day that we shot the 2oceansvibe Show last week with Goldfish, and they filmed some behind-the-scenes stuff for the weekly TV magazine show, Top Billing. And it’s coming out [...]
We are QUITE the authority on a number of things these days, I should tell you. Oh yes, I am now a “branding expert” [makes "inverted commas" signs with fingers above head] of sorts. It’s true – look! CLICK HERE for GottaQuirk interview with Katharina Scholtz Pretty rad interview I had that day [...]
See that dead horse lying there? Ja, watch this. [grabs whip] Once again, I’m not claiming this, but I’m just SAYING, that the latest issue YOU Magazine [*cough* of which I am a cover story] is currently featured on CNN (here). This, shortly after being featured in the Daily Mail (here), as well as the [...]
Ok, look, I’m probably completely overdoing it I just wanted to show you how big MY issue of the YOU Magazine is going. The likes of the BBC and Daily Mail are writing about it nearly every day. They are very focused on the cover story to do with the make-over given to SA gender-row [...]
It goes without saying that the 10 September YOU Magazine issue which featured yours truly (on page 130) is causing absolute mayhem overseas. No, no, not because of me, but rather the fact that it features Caster Semenya. YOU Magazine decided to gave her a make-over, after the controversy surrounding her gender. This, from the [...]
Well would you believe it, I’m in the latest YOU Magazine! Even more exciting is that I’m in the issue with SA gold medalist, Caster Semenya, on the cover! And they’ve dressed her up all woman-like! Awesome! The 10 September issue cover Stunning! So, for those of you who are yet to find [...]
LA tabloid blogger and the epitome of bad health, Perez Hilton, was caught smelling 2oceansvibe’s jockstrap as one of his cockroaches captured us getting some footage for part 6 (part 2 comes out today) of the 2oceansvibe Pauly Shore Zinzi series, currently being shot in Los Angeles. Perez “carbs” Hilton shows his uncoolness by not [...]
Some of you may remember the pics (taken by Max) we posted last month of Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman in character as Francois Pienaar and Nelson Mandela respectively (here). Did you enjoy the use of the word “respectively” back there? Ja, that’s how I roll. Well anyway, given Damon’s New England heritage, Meredith at [...]
I had an interview the other day with the cool cats at TechSmart.co.za. I thought it went very well. Here’s a little tid bit: Six awards including blog of the year, best original writing and most humorous. Did this come as a surprise? With six nominations, I certainly was hoping to get [...]
Last week I gave you the first part (here) of my interview I did with the From the Couch boys in Hout Bay. Loads of fun. Here is the second part: You enjoy that Baby float joke at the end? Ja, thought you might. I was thinking about making you smile at the [...]
