friday night in the city

had a good Friday night. started off at the SA Blog Awards at Chevelle in Harrington Street. it was mad hot and sweaty but enjoyable no less. saw thecopyninja there, his blog, Pleasefindthis, won Best Photographic Blog. we clapped loudly, clutching out vitamin waters. 2oceansvibe won pretty much every other category. and then i got hit in the head by a flying t-shirt. good times.

Thecopyninja accepts his award.

then i wormed my way through the throngs of bitches in thongs in the VIP section to Seth from 2oceansvibe, and proceeded to have the following conversation with him:

Me: Hi, my name’s Alex. I just want to say well done on winning everything and to thank you for adding me to your blog roll – that’s nice of you.

Seth: Oh, what’s your blog called?

Me: MyBrandedLife.com.

Seth: Oh yes, I like your blog. You write about your life as a copywriter, and your cat and stuff. Very funny.

Me: Thanks. It’s not my cat.

Seth: I loved what they said in the speech.

Me: What? Oh when you won that award and you didn’t know what it was for?

Seth: Oh did they?

And then it got too confusing and I had to ran away. But not before I got a photo:

Seth and me, confusing each other.

Then Rei, thecopyninja and I went through to Kink for Jen’s birthday. There were cupcakes.



Cuan and Rob.

There was also a disgruntled neighbour who kept throwing eggs over the wall to protest how fun our party was. Some people … (it was 10pm). After getting egg on my foot AND getting hit in the face by a flying t-shirt, it was time to leave. But not before i took a picture of myself in the Kink bathrooms, which are covered in ‘planned graffiti’ which says things like ‘Take me from behind’. Mm. Happy Times y’all.



cool stuff seen around


we gave the jesus on our windowsill a regal banana jacket for easter.


stickers on the till in Idols store in Musgrave Centre, Durban. made by the shop assistants.


badges in Idols, through the glass.


you can get a water massage at OR Tambo airport, while fully clothed. pretty cool.


a Style-my-Coke booth at the Design Indaba. I got an I Love Jozi styled Coke.


the Mac store in Rosebank has used International Graffiti artist Faffi as inspiration for their new range, and decked out the store accordingly. it’s awesome – they’re even selling Faffi vinyl toys in store. very progressive for a main market cosmetics brand.


found this on a wall in one of our editor’s studios.


caught my brother’s first gig as the drummer in a band called The Wailing Jimi’s at Assembly a couple of Fridays ago.


a pretty piece of art i saw at a party. but blurred but hey.


and this great blockmounted pic found in an old university computer lab. brilliant.
