VIDEO: Macbook thief gets defamed on YouTube

I CAUGHT wind of a fantastic story on 5fm while stuck in traffic this morning. Apparently some guy had his fancy new Macbook Air stolen from him. A while later, Steve (we’ll call him Steve) remembered that his Macbook had an auto backup function which automatically backed up his data to an online server. When Steve went online to have a little peruse through his data he skillfully managed to find the identity of the Macbook thief. Not only that, but Steve also came across a video the wannabe rapper had made using his newly acquired Macbook Air.

Steve reported the identity of the Macbook rapper to the police and uploaded the video to YouTube. It has now seen over a million views and is appropriately titled, “don’t steal computers belonging to people who know how to use computers.” The rapper has asked that the embarrassing video be pulled from YouTube and that he was sorry for stealing the Macbook. Steve and his new fan base told him to get bent.

STAND AS ONE: The unofficial Fifa 2010 World Cup song

THIS is the South African 2010 World Cup song everybody is talking about. FIFA and SAFA have not yet backed this track, so it's creators have decided to take the melody to the people. The foot-tapping beat is called "Stand As One" and after I listened to it it gave me tingles down my spine. Any feedback and comments will be passed onto the creators. Otherwise just enjoy it!

Come on Dance! As we blow our Vuvuzela!!

"Stand as one" 2010 Fifa World Cup Song

Title: Stand as One

The first one, featuring Stand By Me, has reached over 13 million views to date, making it one of the most viral videos of 2008 and most certainly one of my top videos of all time. Here's a snippet from the makers:

From the award-winning documentary, "Playing For Change: Peace Through Music", comes the first of many "songs around the world" being released independently. Featured is a cover of the Ben E. King classic by musicians around the world adding their part to the song as it travelled the globe.

Wasn't that great? It really does get those warm and fuzzy feelings deep inside one churning doesn't it? But if you are an unemotional robot who couldn't give a fig about sunsets or puppies and even struggle to shed a tear for a dying relative, then try giving this one a watch:

PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN VIDEO: Your weekly mood-booster

There’s a song I often listen to on my way to work that not only psyches me up for the day ahead, but genuinely makes me feel Proudly South African and reminds me what a great country we live in. I’ve been wanting to create a video around this song for a while now with the aim of instilling patriotic sentiments and warm & fuzzy feelings in the hearts and minds of all South Africans near and far.

My hope is that this video will give new vigor to what it means to be proudly South African, will make foreigners to our shores feel welcome, and will keep all South Africans positive about their country. Enjoy.
