Win with Vamers

Vamers: Stay. Read. Play

I have not officially or formally announced it, but I have started my very own video games and technology based website called Vamers.

I soft launched the site in June 2011 and I have been attempting to populate it with content ever since (along with a few other able writers). I do plan to officially launch the site in September 2011, preferably on Spring Day, and will have a Gears of War 3: Epic Edition competition to go along with it. So be sure to keep a keen eye out for future ‘Win with Vamers’ posts.

Since I own Vamers I will do some cross posting on Hans’ Milieu from time to time. In fact, this post is the very first cross post of that nature.

The Five Month Hiatus

I am flabbergasted that the last time I updated Hans’ Milieu was just under five months ago. In fact, I am appalled that I have neglected you – my fellow readers and the blog itself, which I regard as the online extension of my living entity – for so long.

So much has happened over the last several months that it would be almost impossible to detail it all in a single post. I will eventually get to updating my milieu, but until then here is a brief account of the major events that have transpired:

  • I am another year older.
  • I have almost finished my Masters – something I am both excited and anxious about.
  • I am a now Mac user – who would have thought?!
  • I have made wonderful new friends.
  • I have grown stronger emotionally, mentally and, most importantly, spiritually.
  • I am still single.
  • The Upper Palatte is making a glorious return – beginning again in August.
  • I have started a website for video games and technology: Vamers – officially launching in October.
  • One of my Tweets went viral.
  • I am committed to going from Flab to Fab by December this year – just in time for Summer.

I will attempt to update as often as possible, at least once a week from this day forward, but my education comes first. So until my Masters is complete I will be unable to update as frequently as I would like. Only a few months to go!

Until the next time Milieunairs!

Nintendo 3DS Launch: South Africa

Hans and the Nintendo 3DSThe Nintendo 3DS was officially launched last night in South Africa.

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend and be one of the first people in the country to play with Nintendo’s latest portable device.

My first hands-on impressions of the Nintendo 3DS and a general overview of the spectacular launch party are right after the jump!

Nintendo 3DS in South Africa: ‘Live Blog’

Nintendo 3DSThis evening I have the opportunity of attending the official launch of the Nintendo 3DS in South Africa. Since it is a private event, which is not open to the public, I have decided to try something different.

For the first time I will attempt to “Live Blog” the event as it happens – from 18:00 (6pm) GMT+2. Please bear in mind that I have never done anything like this before. So it remains to be seen whether or not this will be a “hit or miss” endeavour. Nevertheless, I look forward to your feedback.

If you are interested, the Live Blog is right after the jump.

Helen of Troy

Roman HelmetThis poem was inspired by the music of Telefon Tel Aviv who actually have a song named ‘Helen of Troy’ on the album called Immolate Yourself.

Two poems in one week? Who would have thought!
