There’s a beautiful new round of interviews that have gone down over the last week. There was also the very spicy one on Sunday in the Sunday Times Lifestyle section (CLICK HERE FOR THAT), as well as the GoTravel24 interview and the Digital Edge podcast interview.
In case you missed those, check it out:
March 27th, 2009
Seth Rotherham is one of South Africa’s most successful bloggers. 2oceansvibe is top of my Google Reader and was nominated for an incredible six SA Blog Awards with the ceremony due to take place next Friday in Cape Town.
From his loathing for crocs to his excellent advice on how to torture Butler’s delivery guys, Seth has a loyal following who share his love for Cape Town, frivolity and saying exactly what you think. Bless the internet.

We chatted to him about holidays, Cape Town and even porn. And it’s his birthday today, so we let him say pretty much anything he wanted.
GoTravel24.com: How do you live your motto “Work is a sideline, live the holiday”?
Seth: “It’s not hard when you live slap bang in Camps Bay – it’s all pretty much taken care of. I take a dip in the ocean as often as I can – usually first thing in the morning and hopefully later in the day, whilst lying at Beta Beach. I also try my best to wear Hawaiian shirts as much as possible. I suggest people out there do the same – this alone will give you the impression that you’re on holiday. Even if you’re a 9-5er, who says you can’t wear Hawaiian shirts?
Your travel nightmare would be?
“Anything which involves the sentence Ã¢â‚¬ËœWe don’t have any record of your name here,’ as the little angel ticker tacks away at the keyboard, contorting her face, wide-eyed looking at the screen as her head shakes slowly from side to side…. Ã¢â‚¬ËœNope…. Can’t find it anywhere…’ That’s when I start scrounging through my bag for the Xanors I borrowed from The Roofer…
Are you a member of the mile-high club?
“Hmm, It depends… are you keen? Do you have a plane? Actually, funny story – a friend of ours, “Boegom”, is loath to admit that he hasn’t tried everything sexually. So, when he came back from a trip and claimed to have joined the mile high club, we all gave him the necessary high-fives. Acutely aware of his knack for embellishment, the boys started to push him, Ã¢â‚¬ËœSERIOUSLY, Boegie, did you REALLY do it? Tell us more. How EXACTLY did you do it?’ – he nodded, went quiet, and whispered, Ã¢â‚¬Ëœdoes a blow job count?’ Whaaahahaha! No, it most certainly does NOT!!! (Love you, Boegom!)
That was just a short excerpt so read the rest here !
You need to check out the rest of that interview , in particular the comments section under the interview – it’s got some AWESOME haters!
Then there was also the Digital Edge Podcast, which has just gone live. this one is slightly different because it’s a podcast. For those of you who think a podcast is something to do with a magical spell involving peas, it is actually an audio interview.
