Hip Hop Events / Alice in Zululand
« on: November 23, 2009, 10:15:55 AM »


Pretty Drastically Cool

The festive season Johannesburg will kick of on a pretty drastically cool note. Unlearn Agency brings you the second installment of the multimedia feast Pretty Drastic. For this of us who love any excuse to dress up the theme of this months event is ‘Alice in Zululand’.

On 28 November, Pretty Drastic will take place at the freshest new venue in the Joburg city centre, Arts on Main. The evening will feature an interesting collaboration by Swiss electro dub DJs Filewile featuring Pedro from the award winning band 340ml on vocals. Performances from electronica and illustration crew Mtkidu and South Africa’s best-kept secret, the multi-genre traveler Johnny Cradle. This is one night that will enchant the senses and have the party revelers craving for more. Johnny Cradle’s soulful performance will take place in the courtyard while Soul Diablo and True Jones transform the space into a wonderland of music with their special touch behind the decks.

In the words of Unlearn Agency’s director, Dominique Soma “never before have all spheres of creativity come together in such a fun way”.

Pretty Drastic is an interactive artistic experience that was conceptualised to change the Jozi night life scene with its fantastical funky dress up and performance elements. Each night offers a kaleidoscope of South African and international performers and artists who will present live musical sets, multi-discipline collaborations, dancing and a variety of contemporary arts exhibitions and live paintings.

So if you are a lover of music, visual art, painting, dance, body painting and the like – you cannot afford to miss this event.

bring all your friends!  ;D

General Discussion / regrets!
« on: November 12, 2009, 02:33:33 PM »
what do you regret doing?

i'll start.

when i was in university my friends and i would often have discussions centered on whether or not we were becoming distanced from 'the real world' the more we became involved in academia.

i regret it now because i realize that a 'real world' is an imaginary thing. we could have been drinking and getting smarter, instead.

what about you?

Politics / AA's email from the shoutbox
« on: November 03, 2009, 10:21:08 AM »
(the following is a letter from a Nigerian paper that was circulated around AA's workplace. he linked it in the shoutbox)

i think this is interesting enough to end up in the 'latest posts' - so far we have a confused soliloquy by mad, a guy who's broken up with his girlfriend, ugly cars, and a discussion centered on Rhianna's labia (AG, you really want me to stop coming here, don't you?)

anyway...

and i quote:

South African experience

SIR: On Thursday October 1, 2009, the National Chairman of our great party Chief Bisi Akande; the Lagos State Chairman of the Party in Lagos, Chief Dele Ajomale; his wife; the representative of the Governor and my humble self left for South Africa to inaugurate the chapter of our party. Business finished on Saturday October 2 and 3, 2009 in both Pretoria and Johannesburg. We had Sunday October 4 to look around. It was my first visit to South Africa and what I saw stunned me.

Am I in Africa or Europe? Am I in America? Is this another Singapore? Could this be true? Where was Nigeria when South Africa was putting all these structures in place? If the white man did all these in South Africa why were the Nelson Mandelas of this world complaining? If South Africans got their independence on a platter of gold the way Nigeria got hers in 1960, would there have been all these structures I am seeing here today? Impossible! From what I saw on ground in South Africa, it looked as if all the companies and industries all over the world are physically present there. Ah! Nigeria has been left behind. South Africa is the potential and undisputable leader in Africa. Thanks to the white South Africans.

I came to the unhappy conclusion that the mosquitoes that drove the whites away from Nigeria in 1960 did a colossal and unmitigated damage to Nigerians. I again asked myself these questions: How many black Africans did the whites kill before surrendering power to them? How many Nigerians have been killed by Nigerian leaders since they took over power from the whites in 1960? Let us compare the figures. I am sure the supreme prize South Africans paid to have the South Africa I see today will be so infinitesimal compared with what our leaders have killed to remain in power in Nigeria.

What I am saying is that God should have allowed the whites to tarry for at least more 30 years in Nigeria and we would have been better for it. Mandela survived 27 years in prison because the whiteman was a better person. He could not have survived 10 years in prison in Nigeria.

My conclusion after seeing what I saw in South Africa is that the whites left Nigeria in a hurry, and that is why we are suffering today. Had the whites tarried in Nigeria, Nigeria would have been like South Africa today. I want the whites back in Nigeria!

Joe Igbokwe,
Lagos.


i understand this letter appeared in a national paper in Nigeria. here is some info on Joe Igbokwe. i'd try to get more but i don't have the time it takes to dig through that shit. for one, why is he traveling with the "National Chairman of our great party" if he's a journalist/contributor to that 'Guardian' paper.

what are your thoughts on what this man says?

Movie Talk / cinema!
« on: October 30, 2009, 02:30:24 PM »
okay, boys and girls.

seems like a bit of a slow day, so here's the deal.

in this thread you recommend and post a video of a film (it can be more than one) in your Top Ten of ALL TIME (not just some bullshit you went to see last week and thought was 'ait'). hopefully by the end of it we should have an idea of what to check out (as per recommended by AG's expertise knowledge and super-refined taste) as well as some nice visual treats  :)

ill go first. with a scene/mash from one of the illest flicks i've ever seen.

La Haine (French), 1995. dir. Mathieu Ka**ovitz



now your turn.  :)

Nat you're not allowed to sleep on this!

Movie Talk / We Were Once a Fairytale
« on: October 27, 2009, 05:17:17 PM »
just in case you haven't peeped it - Kanye West and Spike Jonze's short film, 'We Were Once a Fairytale'.

i like some parts of it. but i've been a fan of Jonze for a minute now ('Drop' by the Pharcyde still remains the best Hip Hop video ever and 'Being John Malcovich' was ill) so i might be biased.

what do you guys think?



oh, and Kanye's hilarious at the beginning! that wasn't acting, yo! - that's him! :D
