Pigeons posing as humans of Jozi

Wherever there are humans, you can be certain that pigeons are not far away. Throughout history, they have been known  to have man’s back. Even when man seems to have turned his back on them, they continue to stick by his side. For centuries, pigeons have subtly exhibited their shrewdness without a recompensing pat on the back...

Taxi Violence – Tenfold album review

They caught me at “Untie Yourself”, a song from their debut album of the same name. I fell in love with their sound. That 80’s/90’s rock ‘n roll, with a touch of garage-rock, was everything.

Oppikoppi 20: The Odyssey

It finally happened mama! Your son is official an Oppikoppian!

#Inauguration2014

“Twenty years of democracy”. That statement is starting to sound like a loop from a broken tape record, right? But it’s not without reason.
