I’ve always liked looking at the stars, wondering about the worlds that revolve those distant stars. My facination is purely out of awe. I know those stars have names, I know some of the names, but I don’t know which is which. I don’t really care, to be honest, purely because it doesn’t matter to me. I like them this way.
“What is in a name, that which we call a rose by any other name, would smell just as sweet.” – Romeo an Juliet
Another reason I like looking at the stars, is because of Vincent van Gogh. My favourite painting has always been “The Starry Night“. I have a sentimental connection to van Gogh and Starry Night. Whenever I think of van Gogh, my heart is saddened by the fact that he never knew the true value that his paintings would become, and how his life’s story would add value to those paintings.
So tonight when you look up at the stars, think of the beauty in those stars, and see them as Vincent van Gogh saw them in 1889.
These are a few good mashups I recently saw (via gevaaalik.com)
Whole Lotta Sabbath:
I’ve always been a fan of Old School Rock, and I grew up listening to Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. I love seeing good mashups, and I loved seeing a mashup of these two band from my childhood! Hope you enjoy!
I’m not much of a Jay-Z fan, but I am a Hendrix fan. Everyone who has ever picked up a guitar has at some stage considered (hoped) himself a Hendrix-in-the-making, and I’m no different! Love this man’s music!
This previous weekend, we had the opportunity to stay at Klipkraal in their Kiepersol Cottage.
Klipkraal is a Guest Farm situated between Deneysville and Heidelberg. It consists of 3 farms that have teamed up to create a great self catering and hiking experience.
The have 2 hiking trails ( 13km and 11km respectively ) on the farm, which also hosts 17 species of mammals and 120 species of birds.
Our little getaway was at the isolated Kiepersol Cottage, which caters for 2 – 4 people. It’s a fully stocked self-catering cottage, which only provides electricity for lights. There is gas-powered fridge and heated water facilities, so you won’t be roughing it completely.
If you’ve ever wondered about the science in Star Trek, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Wil Wheaton do a little talk on the science (or lack thereof) in Star Trek.
I really like watching videos where people discuss the sciences that Hollywood just thinks up.
Hope you like the video!
With Movember under the belt, most real men are returning to their former Mo-less selves. This is a short video, of how you SHOULD have done your shave on the evening of the 30th.
Thanks to gevaaalik.com and @DapperTrapper for this one.

I’ve decided that this blog needs a reboot; a fresh start. I’ve not decided what to do with it yet, maybe a little reviewing (games and apps) and a bit of tech stuff, and a bit of personal family-life stuff. We’ll see how it goes!
For now, this is a fresh clean blog.
