We cannot choose how or when that limousine from heaven gets sent down to fetch us. But I sincerely hope that a) I’ll be wearing clean underwear at the time, and b) that I don’t end up like this woman – she died at work, and her slumped body just sat there in the office cubicle for another day before anyone noticed.
The great thing about this business conference (coming to Cape Town on 18 and 19 February) is that it a) is not a thinly veiled pyramid scheme hazing ceremony b) is not a thinly veiled cult hazing ceremony c) is not boring beyond your capacity to sustain life.
Check out the details of an exciting upcoming Cape Town entrepreneurship conference after the jump.
Would you cut your own arm off to save your life? That’s what it all boils down to in 127 Hours, an adventure-thriller and spirited drama starring James Franco and directed by Slumdog Millionaire’s Danny Boyle. The film is an adaptation of Between a Rock and a Hard Place, a biographical account of now famous [...]
Yes, I know, me and everybody’s grandma used ‘there’s an app for that’ as the headline, but that’s because me and everybody’s grandma have an awesome sense of humour. New York’s Health Department released a smartphone app for finding free condom distribution points via GPS on Monday.
It’s quite full-on, this one – and it certainly doesn’t need any explanation. I mean, you GET the humour, right? It would have been one thing if the label was on a 6-pack of eggs. Because a male chicken is a cock, and it would kind of make sense that the eggs are ‘cock’s fresh.’ [...]
If you think about it, music is simply data ordered in a specific way by a clever human and then executed by either man or machine. So why not take some existing data from a very clever machine and see if it makes music? Well that’s what the very very clever people at CERN have done.
We take a break in our broadcasting to thank you, the 2oceansvibe readers out there, for making the last 30 days another record breaking month. 2oceansvibe enjoyed just under 70,000 unique readers and 330,000 page impressions for the last 30 days (according to Google Analytics). That’s a helluva lot of upwardly mobile high-LSM peeps! Follow [...]
A new Thai airline, P.C. Air (appropriate that), is set to become the first airline in the world to employ openly transsexual flight attendants. Thailand is known for its tolerance of transvestites and transsexuals, known locally as ‘katoeys’ or ‘ladyboys’. But, up till now, the only jobs available to them have been in the beauty and ‘entertainment’ industries.
Somehow, Steven Krumholz of West Hollywood managed to sneak a large amount of drugs aboard the MS Allure of the Seas (that’s not a joke name) for what was billed as the world’s largest gay cruise. Authorities discovered his on-board party shop a little too late, though.
Wow, this kid in America is pretty hardcore! And not only because he probably OWNS Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. No, he actually killed his own mother while she was sleeping because she punished him by taking his PlayStation away.
According to our archives, the last TBG sighting was on the 29th of December 2010. That makes THIS the very first TBG sighting of 2011. And how befitting of the year’s first sighting, to be one filled with so much glory and awesomeness. And going to hand over to 2oceansviber Mike S, who will run [...]
Sort of. HP recently released a study looking under the hood of Twitter’s ‘Trending Topics’ function – revealing (gasp) that most of the time, popular topics get broadcast by major media twitter accounts, then amplified by their followers, rather than some wanky cloud-based news system.
It was certainly an ironic sight to see Gennaro Gatusso with a captain’s armband and a ‘respect’ badge on one sleeve, while the other arm was firmly clasped around Joe Jordan’s neck.
SA’s Charlene Wittstock set to become Princess Charlene of Monaco Charlene Wittstock Talks Royal Life – South African swimmer Charlene Wittstock, who is engaged to Prince Albert of Monaco, has revealed that Giorgio Armani will be designing her wedding dress. Wittstock made the announcement during an interview with Talk Radio702 and said that Armani is the [...]
If you missed today’s Financial Report on 2oceansvibe Radio, you’re in luck! Our in-house financial guru, Lindsay Williams discussed the V&A Waterfront sale with Angelique de Rauville, Investec Asset Management’s Property Portfolio Manager – LIVE from London. Lindsay has the very rare ability to talk finance in layman’s terms. Never before has financial chatter made so [...]
A Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate development application to extend the commercial nature of the business it conducts is being opposed by the Constantia Property Owners Association (CPOA). Why? Because 30 new residential houses and 12 new hotel rooms being built will result in, like more traffic. And like, effect the environment and, like, its World Heritage Site chances.
What is even more shocking is the fact that this teacher has more than 20 years worth of experience. And if you are wondering why the headline reads “curry” and “Asian kids” instead of “rice” and “Asian kids”, remember Pakistan and Bangladesh is also in Asia.
What did you get for Valentine’s? The Colombian Navy got a submarine built by drug smugglers in the Timbiqui shipyard. Well I mean the seized it. It wasn’t a gift. Authorities say the sub was meant to transport about 7,000kg of cocaine into Mexico. So there were some pretty disappointed Mexican Valentines, I guess.
If you’ve been charged with rape, it’s best that you don’t post on your Facebook profile that you need a hitman, ASAP, to help sort out the victim of your alleged crime. It’s especially a bad idea if that person can see your Facebook page.
I’m terrified of motorcycles, and this video just reminds me why. Anyway, the biker in question decided it would be a good idea to attach a helmet-cam to his or her head and take their new ride out for a spin. But sometimes, as you know, goods times, they go bad…
We continue the rich centuries old tradition of these Tuesday Tabs fashion images, with one Jessica Hart. According to Wik-Wik-Wikipedia, the 24 year old is an Australian model and, apart from being born in Sydney, is also known for a gap-tooth smile. It should be mentioned that apart from appearing on the cover of Vogue, [...]
But not by Julian Assange. This American Life reports that the recipe was published as a photograph on page 28 of the Atlantic Journal-Constitution newspaper in 1979 as part of an inconspicuous historical piece on the Coca-Cola company, but the small size of the newspaper, the poor placement of the article and a complete lack of the World Wide Web meant that the historical leak went unnoticed. You can see it after the jump.
As you’re all well aware by now, it’s just not our prerogative here at 2oceansvibe to support brands that don’t follow the ethics and values that we uphold. Once again something unnecessary has been brought to our attention that we need to tell you about – “force field” insect repelling plugs for your home or flat.
The South African Film And Television Awards (SAFTAS) honours the top performers and creative minds behind all the locally made shows you see on our television screens. Yet, in an ironic turn of events not one of the local channels will air these awards on an actual television.
Great news from 2oceansvibe’s preferred bubbly, Boschendal – it looks like we’re being treated to the immediate release of the 2007 Grande Cuvée Brut. With the 2006 singled our as the only 4½ star MCC (Méthode Cap Classique) amongst the top performing wines of 2010 rated by Wineland Magazine’s Watterwyn panel of experts. So I’d say [...]
It’s that time of year again kids – that’s right, the WHO has released their saucy ‘Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health 2011′ – which means we get to find out if SA’s still a rock-out party country, or if we’ve gotten all lame and started taking our liver problems seriously.
The overwhelming flop that was Spider-Man 3 must have sparked serious hatred amongst die-hard fans of the comics. By all accounts it was one of the lamest movies ever produced, with as much caseoso as each of Christopher Reeves’ Superman films and 10 seasons of Smallville combined. That said, a reboot of Spider-Man is set for release next year and the title and promo-picture have been released.
Irma Nicci & David Beckham David Beckham’s Libel Claim Rejected – David Beckham has failed in his bid to prove a prostitute who claimed he paid her $10,000 for sex had lied. A judge in Los Angeles threw out his £25m libel and slander lawsuit against a US magazine that published the claims of Irma [...]
