MUSIC VIDEO: Boys Boys Boys - Sabrina (Slightly NSFW)

So, there's this video going around, called 'Boys Boys Boys' by some chick who has about as much singing talent as a frog with a slit throat. People are sharing claiming she's the new Rebecca Black, and I don't appreciate that. I hate it when South Africa always wants to copy America.

Of course this was not this chick's mission, to be a Rebecca Black copy, but South Africa loves doing that, na-aaping American things. We've got cool things here, no need to try to be like Americans all the time.

I know I'm going slightly overboard and out of context, but I reaaaaallly think it's stupid. Game shows, culture, clothing, accents, lifestyle. It's soooo stupid. Anyway.

What I will do instead is share with you a classic internet gem I've not shared before on Random Arbjects, that shares the same name as this sorry excuse of bandwith use, it's the lovely Sabrina with her video Boys Boys Boys, and it holds the record for the MOST nipslips in one video (hence the Slightly Not Safe For Work tag), like seriously, she might as well have been naked throughout the whole video!! Anyhoo, ENJOY!! (ps, I'm surprised this video is still on youtube and not been taken down yet! Lol.)

BABE SCOUT: Raffaella Fico

If you're a football fan, I'm sure you saw this right?



It's our old friend Mario Balotelli, this time, not asking the world 'Why Always Me?', but instead showing his love for Raffaella.

Who exactly is Raffaella? Well, you know I had to find out right :D


This is Raffaella, aaaaand she is Mario's guurrl. Done a quick scour on her, and found an Italian Wikipedia page, that I had to translate. It basically said that she is a Reality Show star that has been on quite a few reality shows before. And it also said this very funny haha part, which I will quote directly from the translated wiki page: On September 17, 2008, the weekly magazine Chi published an exclusive interview, which went around the world, in which Fico said: "I put my virginity up for auction for one million euros. I want to see if anyone pulls out of this sum for me. I do not know what it means to have sex and if someone will pay one million euros for me, I will certainly embarrassed, but with this money I can realize my dreams, or buy a house in Rome and pay for a drama course.

Real classy girl this one eh :D Me likey! Anyhoo, I saw that she was ALSO dating none-other than Christiano Ronaldo last year as well! This girl obviously knows what she's doing and is living straight out of a WAG textbook and is taking TI's line; '...guess they plan on sucking dicks until some millions appear.' VOILA! It did. You go girl. If I was a rich footballer, I'd date THEE CRAP outta you as well!! Anyhoo, ENOUGH with my babble, here's more pics!! Enjoy!

VIDEO: Puffer Fish Lazer fun!

I never, ever knew you could have 'fun' with fish, as pets. I thought it was just, pop them in tank, look at them, go 'hey fishy fishy fishy fishy', feed them, and that's all.

But this video has changed my perceptions!!

Babe Scout: Lil Kim

Now. Babe Scout is usually about hotties that not a lot of people know about, and they are generally HOT.

BUT.

Today's Babe Scout is of a hottie that WAS hot, but is now a has been, and has fucked up her face with plastic surgery.

It's Lil Kim, and I got the SHOCK OF MY LIFE when I saw this video of her, where she effectively disses self-proclaimed stupid ho Nicky Minaj...




I mean REALLY now, what is it with this plastic surgery fails that American stars feel they need to make themselves look like they've waltzed off the set of Babylon 5?!

Now I've done a quick scour of the net, to see what she looked like before, coz I remember she was super slutty hot when 'How Many Licks' came out, but that's all gone now...


Couldn't she just stay like that?! No! Urgh. And then I found this before/after, which reiterates my point:


Why?! Ok, so what, she had a dik neus, who cares! She had mad skillz on the mic! This isn't the first time we've seen African-American famous people having issues with their noses and faces, and it's the old adage of the more I don't look black anymore, the better I look, which a lot of old school coloured folks still have, and what I think is RIDONKULOUS!! I like to call this phenomenon, Jackson-Nose-Hate, as it was Michael, and his sisters who went out of their way to make their nose as thin as possible.

Latoya looking spacey


And Janet doing a tweak


Seriously though, may this be a warning. Your face is fine guys, really, plastic surgery is cool when you got burned by fire or was in an accident, but not to make yourself look like a scarecrow. Keep it natural!! :D

VIDEO: Facebook and Parents

Parents, you'll DIG this, it's a dad trolling his daughter hard. But she's a spoilt prick. Kids like this don't know what they got in their fancy pants houses with lotsa money, lol. GOOD ON YOU DAD! #firstWorldProblems indeed

And notice, this dude even has a slight speech impediment, but he is so pissed off, that he talks right through it!

ARTICLE: Different Kind of Loves

I discovered a weird thing in a weird way the other day.

I'm a creative person. If you know me or follow me somewhere online, you know this. One of the things I like to do is Videography. Since I started making videos, I've ALWAYS been unhappy with my camera that I've used. I had a certain level of video output in my mind, and all my cameras always had something wrong with it, in my mind. So over the past few years I've searched and searched for the perfect camera, and after my most recent acquisition, I had an epiphany.

My first real video camera was a little Sony HandyCam thing, saved up long for it, and was pretty chuffed when I got it. But when I shot things with it, I wasn't happy with the results. Playback was great, it looked wonderful, but by the time the videos were edited and cut and finish, the quality was so bad it wasn't even decent quality for YouTube.

I decided to get rid of it. And get myself a stills camera. So I got my Nikon D5000. I still have it, and I've built up a nice portfolio and reputation as a decent photographer, after teaching myself how to take great pictures, from scratch, with a mixture of trial and error and research, reading how-to books and so forth. But sadly, the video on the D5000 was terrible! It could take video, but it was really, really bad, and the built-in sound was even worse. I just wasn't winning. That's why during this time I've made videos using graphics instead of footage. There's only so much you can do with bad quality footage, and I wanted to release a high quality product. I used to take my videos to Cape Town TV as well, but after a while, I just didn't even bother.

My camera I'm using now is not what I want. I want a broadcast quality camera, but I don't have 50k to splash around, now do I, but it's the best video camera I've had to date. It's my phone, a Nokia N8, and it takes REALLY great videos. But something happened when I went through my archives. I looked at footage from all three video cameras. Footage shot by hand and not with tripod support. I saw that the HandyCam's footage was A LOT more stable, even though my hands rival Michael J Fox while I shoot, but with the N8, the quality is better and clearer and the HD is really High Definition, but without a tripod it's practically useless, because the footage jumps and warps too much. I tried to take some stills with the N8, and even though they're the best quality photos I've taken with a phone, they're not a patch on my D5000 photos.


So.

What was my epiphany?

My epiphany was that it doesn't matter what equipment you're using, creativity doesn't need fancy, expensive equipment to produce quality videos and photos. It's needs YOUR HARD WORK and YOUR ELBOW GREASE and YOUR CLEVER THINKING to produce a product that works. Stop looking for excuses as to why you can't do this or do that. The best use what they have, and make magic with THAT! For all I know, I could've shot an award winning short with my HandyCam, and I was too blinded by camera specs, instead of just trying to do it, and working hard to get a good final product out of what I had. It could've been done. If I just tried hard enough.

Now.

What thee hell does this have to do with LOVE?! And Valentines Day?

Ha, you're gonna like this...

My epiphany was that it doesn't matter what your relationship status is, LOVE doesn't need fancy, expensive gifts and gimmicks to produce quality relationships and marriages.  It's needs YOUR HARD WORK and YOUR ELBOW GREASE and YOUR CLEVER THINKING to produce a bond that works. Stop looking for excuses as to why you can't do this or do that. The best couples use what they have, and make magic with THAT! For all I know, I could've had the ideal relationship with someone I thought would not be a match, and I was too blinded by my situation in life, instead of just telling her how I feel, and working hard to get a good relationship out of what we had. It could've been done. If I just tried hard enough.

Potent ne. :)

Happy Valentines Day.

BABE SCOUT: Hope Solo

So, after the popularity of the previous Babe Scout article (it's my FOURTH MOST VIEWED post and it's only been up ONE WEEK! Go Eva Caneiro!! :D), I thought I'd do another :D

Today it's the USA's female soccer team's Goalkeeper, Hope Solo :D


Now, that's already an awesome name, she sounds like a super hero, but she's also quite pretty in a world where there are lots of man-ish female football players, she's a nice respite to look at on the field of play! I watched the previous Fifa Women's World Cup almost solely to perv on her :D

Now UNLIKE Eva, the internet is chock full of pictures/interviews/bio of Hope, so it wasn't as tricky to find great photos of her :D If you didn't know, Hope is the starting keeper for the national US football team, and, as you'll see in the following pictures, she can kick some ass :D






And here's a few more pics, that are less-ass-kick-y, more hubba-hubba :P






AND MY PERSONAL FAVOURITE...BOOM!

ARTWORK: Escape From Stock Island

So I shared this before on my twitter, but not on RA yet, and I realized that I should, coz RA is a platform for ALL my creative stuff, even artwork such as this.

So quick background on this, I do stock photography in my spare time and share it on Deviant Art. Through doing this I've built up a friendship with the stock community on DA and I've told my favourite stockers that I will soon use their photos for something and I finally did. You can read more about it in the bio of the deviation here>> ESCAPE

And here's the artwork (CLICK FOR FULL VIEW)

VIDEO: I Fink U Freeky - Die Antwoord

So, after seeing the preview for this, I must say, I was expecting a little more WTF than is actually present in this full video for this song.

Similar in style to their previous offering 'Vok Julle Naaiers' (yes, that is actually the name of the song), this video is filled with wicked dancing, rats running over Yolandi's mouth, and Ninja being foul mouthed, same old, same old, ne.

The whole, 'sound like a coloured thing' is so old and boring though, anyway, it's an entertaining watch.
