New Jack Parow video

Afrikaner-Gangsta** rapper Jack Parow makes me laugh out loud… ie “Ek is America, jy’s Iraq”… I mean, where does he come up with this crap? I wish I had a better handle of Afrikaans, but I manage to pick up most of it –the videos are hilarious. He should consider singing a few more in […]

Exclusive – Hot new local tech launch: The TwitterStick

Well, not that exclusive actually. This dates back to May, but Brendan Jack (of MTV Footskating fame) just brought this to my attention via his blog, starring the brilliant Rob Van Vuuren and his Hot New Tech Launch: The TwitterStick. LOL. They’re looking for an angel investor. I know you want it Vinny.

To the 27 Dinner, James

Today the topic is transport. Chris Rawlinson, networker extraordinaire, of the 27Dinner, Stormhoek and Huddlemind, seems to be taking care of my transport needs these days — and this time he delivered a big car. For this 27Dinner we (Bridget, my other half) caught a limo (wot, wot) together with WebMovieStars The Perels (speaking about […]

When you don't want to be a fly on the wall

This is funny. Barack Obama, taking out a fly.

The trouble with Twitter

For those of you, like me, who simultaneously loathe and love Twitter, you’ll love this clip. It was sent to me by friend of mine and fellow Capetonian Rob Broster who is of the former camp, without much of the latter. Oh and feel free to follow me on www.twitter.com/matthewbuckland 😉 (PS: Apologies for the […]

Everything is amazing, nobody is happy

Hilarious… and too true. See myself in this video. (Received via Facebook from a friend.)

Amazing keyboardless laptop introduced by Apple

"SA companies beat internet giant to the pinch"

Um, received this rather surreal press release yesterday. Not sure I would have sent this out as a piece of public relations, myself. It’s likely that Google will respond, either with a polite phonecall or a legal letter. Or in all likelihood, they just won’t care. Be interesting to see how it plays out. After […]

Blogging about tweeting about podcasting about blogging

This made me chuckle. And by blogging it I’m acutely aware of the infinite irony loop I’ve created. It follows a similar meme theme raised recently, criticising the incessant over-analysis and navel-gazing in the “social media marketing” “sector”. (Intended separation of double quotes). From Costpernews, via Vinny Lingham.

Bad spelling at the BBC

Don’t you love it when the big boys cock it up. (Dedicated to Riaan Wolmarans, erstwhile editor & sub at M&G Online)

The meaning of life, on a supermarket shelf

While browsing the aisles of a Cape Town supermarket I came across this: (although it could be hotter)

Spam king attacks my computer

Below is a screenshot of my Outlook inbox. You will notice a recurring theme. It’s bounce backs from a Thought Leader mailshot that, my colleague and friend, Vincent Maher sent out to around 15 000 people. What did I do to deserve this punishment?? So now I owe him one for this. Any suggestions on […]

The Bolton Deventer Twitter experiment

“Reality is merely an illusion, although a very persistent one” – Albert Einstein “An era can be said to end when its basic illusions are exhausted” – Arthur Miller So let me start with this: People who are accusing me of being Bolton Deventer, know only half the truth. I don’t know who Bolton Deventer […]

Bolton Deventer 'reveal' to spice up local blog awards?

So Bolton Deventer, the spoof online marketer, has entered the upcoming local blog awards. The rather odd-looking Deventer, who runs the blog “Webtrafficmaker” is a fictional character, a clever and funny parody of an internet marketer from Ermelo, apparently created as a “major social experiment“. An entire persona was created, which included profiles on Facebook […]

Move over iPhone: This is the ultimate converged phone

Now this is the true iPhone killer we have all been waiting for. Sorry for all you guys that spent your $$$ buying the iPhone. This is the baby you:

So now you know

Navel lint: From Wikipedia: Navel lint, or more commonly belly button lint or navel fluff, is an accumulation of fluffy fibres in one’s navel. Many people find that, at the beginning and end of the day, a small lump of fluff has appeared in the navel cavity. The reasons for this have been the subject […]

Expose the naked editor!!!

Who, exactly, is the Naked editor? We know this much so far. He/she was at the WAN conference in Cape Town. He/She has a crush on Vincent Maher, M&G Online Strategist aka “curly-haired bloke”. The persona is a he, but it’s probably a she. In fact, by the writing I am pretty sure it is […]

Australia, not South Africa, the leading country for burglaries

And the leading country for burglaries in the world is… Not South Africa. It’s Australia. Even New Zealand appears before South Africa. See Nationmaster.com. The statistics site appears to be credible and authoritative, with reviews from the BBC and NY Times and others. Looks like Clyde Rathbone better emigrate back to Durban. Ok, but let’s […]
