0 Comments Sabrage and vulgar displays of wealth

Article written by the brilliant on the , in the Uncategorized category

During the recession, there is nothing more hysterical than vulgar displays of wealth. I’m not talking about buying a house, because everyone does that and it’s not exactly vulgar. I’m talking smaller things that have more of an impact and are more socially unacceptable.

Like my batch of “Fuck the recession I’m still rich” T-shirts, and our Blue Pussy (HERE)

Another way to clearly show your disgusting wealth is to open your champagne bottle with a saber as all the cool kids do. A little bit of information on sabrage from WikidCool:

Sabrage is a technique of opening a champagne bottle with a saber and is most notably used for ceremonial occasions. But if you live the life of decadence and luxury, you can just open all your bottles with a saber! Sabrage involves sliding the blade along the bottle towards the neck. The force of the blade hitting the lip breaks the collar from the neck of the bottle.

The technique of sabrage became popular in France when the army of Napoleon visited the aristocrat domains. It was just after the French revolution and the saber was the weapon of choice of Napoleons cavalry, The Hussar. Napoleon had good reason to celebrate due to his victories across Europe.


Sabrage on Veuve with a Swiss Army Knife? Not ideal

As Napoleon so wisely said “Champagne: In victory one deserves it; in defeat one needs it”

Wise words!

So there’s another little trick to add to your already ridiculous bundle of tricks to completely avoid the 2009 recession. We’ve also been avoiding it quite nicely,  for a quick recap click HERE.

0 Comments Garden Route Organic Skincare Review

Article written by the brilliant on the 29 Apr 2009 , in the Fashion & Grooming category

I’m sometimes hesitant to write these sorts of things because I seem to be getting called gay quite a lot these days. Not that I have anything against gay people, if I did, I would have NEVER made it through my matric year. God, it was like The Birdcage! Hilarious. Everytime I decline an alcoholic drink someone calls me gay. Then I get a drink but it’s “a chicks drink” and I’m called gay.

On a side note here, if a gay man orders a beer, is he called straight? Interesting.

But to be really honest, you can call me gay when I order a Brutal Fruit at the bar, and I’ll STILL take your girlfriend home and bang her like the prom queen.

Sorry…issues for my therapist.

So onto the Garden Route Organic Skincare range, which I’ve been using for quite some time now because it’s so damn good! At the moment we’re (Being you and me)  using the Tea Tree and Lavender Cleanser, the Kigelia, Lemon and Witch Hazel Toner and the Baobab and Rose Geranium moisturiser.

Crikey that’s a mouthful!

I’ll show you a mouthful young lady!

And what can I say…the products are brilliant!

garden route organic review

All Garden Route Organic products are free from harmful preservatives, synthetic fragrances and colourants, as well as free from petrochemicals. Garden Route Organic is a local brand, so you reduce the mileage it has to travel to get to you, greatly reducing the carbon footprint compared to imported brands. And Garden Route Organic is as good, if not better in my opinion, than the imported brands. The pricing is extremely competitive, considering you’re getting a product packed full of real ingredients, not extracts of ingredients mixed in with a whole lot of cheap fillers.

If I’m correct, 60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our body. Look at your regular skincare products. Look at all the crazy chemicals. Do you want those inside you? Probably not. Do they have an effect on your health over the years? Evidence is sketchy, but if you look at the sheer amount of bizarre diseases in the world, I think they can be seen to play a large part in disease over prolonged exposure.

So Garden Route Organic not only produce a local product that is completely safe for you, but it’s also beneficial to the environment because it’s made pretty close to home and won’t wash any chemicals into our drains and into the environment. This also keeps money in our economy, instead of funding major brands overseas. Buying these organic products is basically like giving our economy a boost, sweet!

I don’t really have problem skin so I can’t say if my skin is clearer, because it’s just normal, but the products are great to use, smell fantastic and do the job very well. My skin isn’t dry, isn’t oily, it’s just all good!

So there we have it, another great range of products to keep your skin in shape this winter, and throughout the year.

Garden Route Organic also manufacture shampoo, conditioner and a body wash. Their product packaging is also completely recyclable.

Prices: Cleanser: R89

Toner: R87

Moisturiser: R165

I like it, a lot.

Buy the products online HERE at Garden Route Organic

0 Comments Keep your head warm this winter

Article written by the brilliant on the , in the Fashion & Grooming category

Because I’m above average in the stupid department, my brain runs at very slow speeds. All my brain is wired to do is chill, go to clubs, laugh, watch Top Gear, eat, sleep, drink and admire women. When it comes to “work” my brain’s operating system seems to have a virus, probably like a trojan horse or something. Because my brain runs at such slow speeds, it never really warms up. Some might call this a problem. Well I’ve found the solution!

If you’re a idiot (Like me) your brain and head will generally not generate enough of their own heat. You won’t exactly suffer from brain freeze because you don’t have the required equipment (Like me), but your ears and stuff might get cold.

So you need a beanie of sorts! The surf stores are selling quite sick ones, and I bought two.


One in black and one in white so I’m politically correct and that way score some sweeeeet tax deductions.

They are beanies (Why do I hate that word so much?) with a slight little peak, giving them a certain radness. So you can wear them with the peak at the front, or at the back, as shown below, by me. Do ignore the ridiculous faces, but I was just informed before this that I won R35 in the lottery. MENTAL!

von zipper beanie forward

Ma’m I’ll lick you  if you dare come any closer




Notice the stubble? Three weeks growth baby YEAH! Woooo hoooo! (Mmmmm terrible T-Zone shine there…Garcon bring my powder! No…not my nose powder…) 

The black one is from Billabong and I think it was R130. It’s not that good though and it’s the first one I bought. Which is why I had to buy another one. The Billabong is cheaper, but it’s also acrylic which is shit and it made my head itchy (It’s not the herpes, it’s in remission, remember?). So don’t buy that one, or any acrylic ones.

The white one however is 100% cotton and it’s super comfortable. The fit is less tight than the Billabong (They’re all one size), and the cotton is way more comfortable. The white one is from Von Zipper and costs R199.

So go grab a couple, they’re awesome.

I bought my Von Zipper one from Billabong in Cavendish Square. All surf shops should stock them. ONLY buy the 100% cotton ones.

The acrylic is for the poor people and let’s people know you are a pleb.

0 Comments Get your Mothers Day gifts at The Body Shop in Cape Town

Article written by the brilliant on the , in the Cape Town Dates To Diarise category

I never really know what to get my mom for Mothers Day, and when I got her a bag of coal last year, well, it didn’t go down well!

And you know I gave her Charka, the expensive coal! Dammit…

Anyway, if you’re struggling for ideas for this Mothers Day and what to get you mother, head down to the Body Shop (Go for the V&A Waterfront, Canal Walk, Constantia or Cavendish Square in Cape Town) Here you’ll find all that is good for your mother dearest!



You can get all sorts of gift packages here, and if you, like me, don’t know what the hell to get then just ask the staff and they will help you select some great products.

0 Comments The Showroom in Cape Town closes, Riboville in liquidation

Article written by the brilliant on the , in the Cape Town Restaurants, Pubs, Coffee Shops etc category

This is quite funny because I heard this news just as my new batch of “F The Recession” t-shirts were being printed. Saucy!

So as it goes, The Showroom restaurant in Cape Town has closed (Source). Not surprising really, considering the style of eating there. Set amongst multi million rand cars, it doesn’t quite give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside. It’s like dining in a garage. Also, the portion sizes were part of this ridiculous “fashion” food, where when you’re done eating you’re thinking “Ok so what’s for dinner?”

Not for me.

Riboville is in liquidation (Source) which is a shame as it really was something spectacular, set in the old bank in Cape Town. But I suppose that what the recession does, it knocks off all the industries of our lifestyle excess. Pity.


Riboville in Cape Town: ALL GONE!

The good news? SLXS is still open to rock out! BANG Chopper Reid!

You know, maybe that Al Gore was right in saying that there is a recession…
