Meaningful Spirituality

Over the last few months a few curious religious incidents have made news headlines. Consider the following:   – An extraordinary genocide of Christians and other religious minorities occurred in Mossul Iraq and in Syria by ISIS – Islamic Extremists (so extreme that they were excommunicated by Al-Qaeda – a known terrorist organisation.) For them such things were spiritual acts. ... Read More »


Enjoying some well-deserved downtime the other day I treated myself to a little couch surfing and channel hopping. It’s hard to believe how tough it is finding something worth watching now days. Surprisingly I ended up on a local derivative of a show I had seen on one of the BBC channels, called Dragons Den. In brief, what happens is ... Read More »

Open letter to a racist …

Dear Ntsiki Mazwai I am not ashamed of my pale skin. I was born and raised in Africa. I am an African. The biggest difference between me and you is that I do not judge people by the colour of their skin, where you are a RACIST! You are a racist of the worst kind. You write racist propaganda and ...

True Detective – TV Review

The first word that comes to mind is “Poetic!” Everything about this show, from the casting to the soundtrack, the scripting, the visual effects, just seem to slot together effortlessly, which is what you would expect from a splendiferous work of art. I was initially very intrigued by the Harrelson/McConaughey combination, not quite sure what I thought about it. Now ... Read More »

The Bridge – TV Review

If they ever start giving out medals for watching television, then I should definitely get a purple heart for this one! My sympathies go out to Ted Levine who must wonder how he got stereotyped into co-starring with mentally handicapped detectives. In this case the lead character has the mentality of a 12 year old, but still manages to shine ... Read More »

Cirque Eloize – ID

Putting a poor start to my evening and a mediocre restaurant experience behind me, I promised myself that I would give the show a fair chance and try my best not to let my bad mood skew my review. Lucky for me I didn’t have to try too hard. I was transfixed from the first moment the lights went down ... Read More »

Gourmet Garage – Monte Casino

A friend of mine invited me to a show on Saturday evening and we decided to go through a bit earlier and have dinner before the show. Spoilt for choice at Monte Casino my friends insisted on making reservations at Gourmet Garage. Admittedly I had heard some talk and my expectations were high by the time we had arrived. (Apparently ... Read More »

R 55 000.00 per month is not enough

Okay, I’m not a big fan of Soaps and if I accidentally walk in on someone watching a show once a year, it seems fairly easy to pick up the storyline and catch up from where I last saw it in a single episode. However I try to remain objective and give a fair commentary encompassing both sides of the ... Read More »

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

It is no surprise that I thoroughly enjoy John Oliver. Those who know me might even say we were kindred spirits. He says it like it is, and his primary weapon of choice is sarcasm. Not only does John Oliver say what needs to be said, but he does so in an interesting and entertaining way. In my opinion this ... Read More »

Madame Zingara – Theatre of Dreams

I am putting this one down as a restaurant review as I was introduced to this experience as a dinner and a show. I have heard a lot of talk about Madame Zingara and have always been contemplating a visit. But between the ooo-ing and aah-ing I never followed though, and it was always a, “maybe next time” procrastination. Reports ... Read More »
