This is How you Market a Movie: New X-Men Nails it!

Now the hype is already huge for any Marvel movie. And it must be said that any X-Men movie is right up there with the most anticipated. The new Days of Future Past looks great. If you area  a comic book fan then you will know what it is all about. If you are not then don't fear because the marketing guys behind the upcoming film have done some great things. 25 Moments (<<click click it's fantastic) is a website that integrates real historic events with events from the movies and comics. It is also great to see how they have tried their best to link up all the X-Men movies as best they can, even the shitty first ones. The Bent Bullet  is another great website that adds to the back story of the movie. Did I mention great marketing!

The demons with pass and so will this work week.

It's Payday. Time to Eat some Nutella on Ribs

Derick Watts & the Sunday Blues are at it again. I don't know what I can really say about these guys, they could do a video about toast and I would love it. In their latest song called PAYDAY (feat. Jack Parow & The Kiffness). They....well sing about Payday. I mean who hasn't had that moment when they are literally scraping the barrel and then in rolls the check and you think you are P Diddy all over again. Nutella on Ribs and Ribs on Ribs, probably the best line from the song, but I will let you decide for yourself. These guys are also deep....real deep. I mean boet can't you see the message here. That we shouldn't behave like lunatics and save some money. Be that as it may, it's payday for me as well and I am off to eat some Nutella on Ribs.

What the Irish think about the Americans!!!

TMZ recently had this to say about Jay Z and Beyonce being in Ireland. It is just brilliant...Why you ask? Well because it just shows how stupid some people really are. I had a great laugh watching these two videos so I recommend you do the same. It's just class.

Move, Eat, Learn!

"3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage... all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ....into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films.....
= a trip of a lifetime".

Those are the words written on these guys Vimeo channel with these 3 awesome videos. I am sure you have seen them doing their rounds on different social media channels, but if you haven't then great! You get to watch them for the first time.

Coca-Cola you Racist Bastards

So I know we have all seen this ad a few times (maybe more then a few) now, but I thought I would jump on the band wagon and throw my 2 cents in. This is not a bash at America per say, or Americans for that matter. I have American friends and I always make fun of them, after all they are the world giants so they deserve to take a bit of stick. Living abroad though I have met all types of people and I have met all types of Americans. I have met shy ones, loud ones, mean, nice, soldiers, teachers, travelers, liberals, conservatives, republicans, democrats, racists, open minded ones, ones I want to be friends with and ones I would prefer to steer clear of. Yes sadly there are those bad apples and yes just like those people that made all those comments about the Coca-Cola ad. I have met those ones. And yes I know what you are thinking, are they really that ignorant, stupid and self absorbed and the answer is well...yes.

2042 & the White Minority

In 28 Years White People Will Become The 'Minority' In America. Whaaaaattttttt?!?! oh no this is terrible. What on Earth are Mericannnss going to do about it. Being born in South Africa and being white this has never been a problem for me. I have traveled all over Asia, but I have never been to Europe or North America, so really I don't know what it's like to be a majority. And frankly I don't think it would make much of a difference. There are millions of Americans that are panicking and I say, well that's probably just because you are American and you really haven't taken a rational look at it. According to census figures, whites* are projected to become the "minority" race in America by 2042.*In the official census count, "Lebanese, Arab, Moroccan" are also counted as white. So already you can see that this figure is already out.
