MAKING PIZZA WITH THE SAMSUNG SMART MICROWAVE OVEN

In my opinion, the true test of any oven is whether it can make a pizza. Forget a leg of lamb or a roast chook, a delicious pizza is where it’s at for me and if an oven can’t produce the goods, it gets thrown out pretty quickly. My skill at putting together a pizza isn’t under scrutiny here at all, however, for the record I’d like to state that I am pretty shit hot at it. As mentioned previously, I signed up for the latest leg of the #MissionSamsung Blogger Challenge which would see Samsung ask me to complete a list of tasks using their new Smart Microwave Oven. The first of these challenges was to make a pizza. Dough and all.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE 2014 BILLABONG PRO TAHITI

By all accounts, this year’s Billabong Pro in Tahiti was off the hook! Dudes were getting worked left right and centre as the waves were as heavy as has been seen at Teahupo’o in some time. The Teahupo’o wave has a legendary reputation, due to its unique form. The coral reef is extremely shallow and at times sits 50 cm below the surface, whilst the lip of the wave is often as thick as it is tall which means that when someone wipes out on the wave, it’s usually pretty gnarly. That being said the wave consistently offers barrels and is considered a ‘must surf’ spot on any surfing enthusiast’s list. Gabriel Medina from Brazil ended up taking the title, beating off the likes of Kelly Slater and Mick Fanning in the process. Here are a couple must watch highlights from the comp.

THE BEST FAILS OF AUGUST

You know what I say: Another month, another compilation of humans wiping out and what better way to kick off both your week and your spring month with said compilation? You’ll find the usual BMX/Skateboarding wipeouts which will have you feeling both nauseous and joyous at the same time whilst the selection of shots to the face are great. My personal favourites are the dude at 01:00 who comes seriously short on an escalator – to the absolute delight of the cameraman – and the lady at 01:28 you redefines the meaning of the words face plant. Speaking of face plants, the biker at 02:34 eats it as hard!

ANOTHER AMITYVILLE HORROR MOVIE TO SCARE THE SH*T OUT OF YOU

You’d think that this story has run its course, right? Clearly not. You know this story. You know this haunted house. The one somewhere in New York State with the creaky floorboards, lurking ghouls and horrific past? The house which haunts the male character to the extent where he wants to off his entire family? Heard it before? You should have because it’s been done over and over and yet they still claim that each new tale is another ‘true story.’ Pfffft! Despite it having been done since ages ago, this new addition – ‘Amityville: The Awakening’ – actually gives me the creeps and is guaranteed to scare the shit out of me.

FIVE TIPS WHICH WILL ENSURE YOU GET THE BEST TAILORED SUIT

It is of little importance how much money you spend on your suit or if it is made of the finest materials. If it doesn’t fit you, it won’t look good.

GEtting a suit tailored can seem like a daunting task what with the almost endless number of option and styles to choose from.
