The last time I saw an international act perform in SA must have been Chris Rock, he’s not even a musician.
I didn’t go to Coldplay, Little Dragon, Lauryn Hill, Robert Glasper, Kanye (I went when he first came), Miguel, Jill Scott, Gregory Porter, Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga, 30 Seconds To Mars, R. Kelly, The Killers, John Legend. (What happened to My Coke Fest?)
In fact you could say I’ve been missing out on life. The last time I saw an international musician was in New York (threw that in there) last year. Beyonce. Free concert. Good Morning America. And I had the pleasure of taking a pic with Alicia Keys the year before for the same concert.
So NOW…I’m getting back in the game. No more FOMO. Jamiroquai and Kendrick Lamar *swoon*
Maxwell is coming to SA too but I’m not about to go to the Coca-Cola Dome. It was a nice venue when I was young teen sweating over Usher, but not anymore. And it’s Maxwell. I need to sit down but still be able to see him.
Don’t even talk to me about Rihanna.
With the heavy load of cooler boxes and camper chairs, I finally settled in a neat (shady) spot with my friends as we lamented on the extreme heat of the day. With constant rain for six days in Johannesburg, scepticism of the Campus Invasion Tour’s occurrence roamed at large. But because Goldfish was performing and I was there, the sun smiled upon us and gave us a feastful treat of Electro-Jazz at the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens.
Now Novel. A toolkit that helps with creative flair in starting the novel you promised to start 10 years ago. I promised myself to start 10 years ago and have yet to do so. The website says it’ll “help me find an idea, create structure and stay motivated.”
I thought I’d have millions of manuscripts and/or treatments of plays and novels by now. But alas, I have no idea what to write about. In my varsity years I took to writing about entertainment. Hell this blog has about two pieces on television shows and a review on a play. It also has a piece on Aids is a mass murderer, as well as my advocacy for social media (I am now a social media manager).
