U2 360° Tour: a look behind the scenes

Hans - U2 360 Behind the ScenesSouth Africans are a buzz. One of the world’s biggest rock bands is performing on South African soil.

That’s right folks U2 is here  and, believe it or not (I still cannot), I was privileged enough to crack an elusive invitation to an exclusive behind the scenes look at the inner workings of the U2 360° Tour.

Be a part of the U2 360° Tour in South Africa

U2 360° Live - BonoFor those who still do not know, U2, one of the world’s biggest rock bands, will be hitting South African shores in a little under 360 hours from today.

To be precise, U2 will be performing to a sold out crown of sweaty palmed South Africans in exactly 300 hours from the time of this post (yes, I worked it out).

The best part? You could win a set of double tickets to either the Johannesburg or Cape Town shows as well as other incredible prizes.

Music Monday: ‘Fuck You’

Hey Milieunairs,

It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!

Rationale: Of all the phrases to be blogging about, can you believe that the one song I choose from Lily Allen’s new album would contain the acronym for “Fornicating Under Consent of the King”? Those who personally know me can attest to the fact that I simply do not use the ‘eff’ word (even now while thinking the word I say ‘eff’). In fact, I barely swear – with the exception of the words ‘bitch’ and ‘shit’, which I use sparingly. Personally, I am not a great fan of colloquialism and believe that obscenely vulgar language, used in excess and no matter how deliciously descriptive, is just a new means of raping the English tongue. However, in this very rare case, I have made an exception. Lily Allen’s song “Fuck You” is brilliant! It has such a catchy tune and is a song specifically written for those who belong to minority groups (none of which I am a part of, being a straight white male and all) and who embrace a liberal stance to life. Consequently, I came across this video, called ‘The Big Fat Gay Collab’ (the video’s image placeholder is so sexually suggestive… I am not sure if I will be able to eat ice-cream the same way again…), while searching for Lily’s ‘eff you’ song on YouTube. Lily Allen’s new album is a pop fiesta filled with witty lyrics and tactlessness. If you like Lily’s music, you will love this album!

As always, whenever I post about Vivaciously Varietal Vibes on Music Monday’s, simply click on the name of the song to be taken to a web page that displays the songs lyrics.

Until the next time “Milieunairs”!

HA-HA Chair – Episode 2: Royal High’s



This is the long awaited (over two years) second episode, of the ‘HA-HA Chair’ impromptu series, entitled: Royal High’s.

HA-HA Chair focuses on two individuals and the experiences brought on by the mystical red ‘HA-HA Chair’. As the series expands, additional characters and story arcs will develop.

BE WARNED: You will not get the 10 minutes of your life back from watching this video! HA-HA!
