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.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy waiting for that November rain.

  1. Ghost Recon Freedom of choice and Final Fantasy was in last week at some point. Correct me if I’m wrong.

            If you want to see a gorgeous girl, watch the new Jason Bourne movie. OMW. Alicia Vikander.

            The sticks you buy at the shops have sharp and pointy ends…
