In Other News – 28 November 2016

2 min read


Something a little bit different today. November is almost over, and the silly season is right around the corner. And I love it. Sure, I may poke fun at Joburgers for walking barefoot through our pristine shopping centers here by the coast. And I may have written a rap album that consisted of me waxing lyrical about my hatred for Boney M’s Drummer Boy tune (I brought these gifts for you they’re up in my buuuuuuum).

But I like this time of year. There’s something magical about the sense of finality that comes with the end of an annual sojourn around our local star. There’s this feeling that no matter what happened this year…everything is going to be alright in the end. So bring it on silly season. I’m more than ready for you.

In Other News: Street Fighter V is good through to 2020, portal combat in Path of Exile and there’s a creepy theory regarding Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
