My first choice for this post is a band called The XX. If you keep your musical ears close to the ground and you don't spend all your time listening to Michael Bolton, it is likely that you have already heard of this band. I like them, their CD has a great flow. I suggest you either pirate their music, or if you are controlled by your conscious then perhaps buy it. Either way, listen to their shit. Its good
Ok. So already you might be realizing that Keisha isn't that cool anymore and brushing your teeth with a bottle of Jack Daniels doesn't mean you will make good music. The next band is called Bombay Bicycle Club, and yes they are good.
My last selection for the day is a band that you should already know. These Canadian individuals have a band that consists of about 50 thousand members (more like 8). They also make very good music, so good that Kings of Leon have become jealous of their success and decided to make childish allegations towards them. Arcade Fire is cool. Listen and be amazed. Yes. Dressed for success.
Until next time kids. Remember not to use energy saving light bulbs when you smoke TiK. Its make the whole process a hassle.

Who will the white population target their frustration upon now that our short and shunned Julius has no body guards and cannot deport Bloody British Agents anymore. Perhaps they will turn to slandering that "Bloody Moffie" Pieter Dirk Uys, or the next ANC Youth League President who is just fighting for his people, who knows. Better invest in some New Zealand Rugby shirts oaks.
The Worst thing of all is that not only will Daughtry be coming to SA, but those Irish bastards U2 will be gracing our shores. Their gob smacking, ground breaking 360 degree stage will be polluting our airwaves and breaking crowd attendance records in Africa next year. Bono can now fulfill his life long dream of adopting a Khoi San baby boy.Perhaps we are all shallow and ungrateful people. I dunno, but at least we have AB De Villiers. As long as he doesn't sing

In a mainstream musical world that is obsessed with candy coated pop stars who either bend the line between genders or who sell their music with the assistance of their genitalia, it seems that anyone who wants to drink a bottle of Jack Daniels and rock the fuck out is tough out of luck. Waddy Jones of the Die Antwoord has recreated himself over and over again until he hit the big time, pushing the yard stick so far that even YouTube has removed the controversial bands even more controversial music video. Two "apparent" descendants of Charlie Chapman are quickly becoming one of the biggest acts of in South African history, even though it seems they are more familiar with beef jerky and baseball then with Biltong and Cricket. The average person in the street seems more concerned with who can say "Fok" the most in one sentence then those blessed with actual musical ability.

Born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson on October 25, 1984. The singer/song writer better know as Katy Perry has been massaging people's ears with her contralto vocal range(Lowest Classical Female Voice) since she was a youngster. Katy Perry was born the second child to two pastors and was involved in the Church choir from an early age. At the age of 15 her voice caught the attention of Rock veterans from Nashville Tennessee and they encouraged her to sing and learn the guitar.
I Kissed A Girl". The single would quickly come to dominate music charts all over the world. In a short period Capitol Music had taken Katy Perry from a small time musician to the big time. The Katy Perry machine began to take flight, she managed to follow up I kissed a Girl with another hit single "Hot and Cold". Miss Perry managed to pick up Grammy Nominations and MTV Music awards. She also managed to upset British singer Lilly Allen when she called herself a Skinny Version of her. Katy Perry has released a second album in 2010 entitled Teenage Dream. The first single "California Girls" features a collaboration with Snoop Dog. She managed appeal to men with he beautiful looks and to women with her bubble gum style and her disgustingly catchy music. I look forward to seeing miss Perry mature in the spot light. She deserves all the attention she is receiving
Unfortunately for us guys, Katy Perry is about to marry Russel Brand. The Bastard

We take pleasure in the finer aspects of life, the simple smell of our environment. We take pleasure in seeing someone fall off a bicycle, someone falling in love, someone making a fool of them self or someone els, or in someone feeling the cold blade of life. We were shown this by Jesus Christ , by Bart Simpson, He Man and by Madonna. We are a stew of what we are exposed to in specific periods of our developing existence. We are taught to hate anyone who stands against our tape recorder minds. Often we are told to destroy their very existence, their most sacred objects and their defenseless pets.
We are taught to court the most wanted humans in our social groups. We are taught to hunt the objects of our desires like sharks. We are taught to treat the opposite sex with respect. We are taught to treat the opposite sex like pests. We are taught to open the door for the one who loves us so . We are taught to lie and betray the ones we love in some selfish act of self fulfillment. We are taught never to steal, unless it is from the one who stole from our us, because then we must kill.
