THE GREATEST REFRESHMENT AD OF ALL TIME: L&P STUBBIES

This is a pure class, classically Kiwi, beer advert and it’s gold! Pure gold I tell ya! I haven’t seen advertising like this since ages ago and although the advert has been around for some time, anything which possesses this
level of class deserves a mention on The Noblest Rogue. It’s 45 seconds of pure enjoyment, so do yourself a favour.

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. Let me repeat that: If it doesn’t fit you, it won’t look good. This is simply the fact of the matter. As it is with most clothing, fit is key, and when it comes to tailoring a suit, fit will quite simply make or break the suit. GEtting a suit tailored can seem like a daunting task what with the almost endless number of option and styles to choose from. Where do you start? Here are 5 tips which should get you moving in the right direction.

Noblest Rogue - Irina Shayk

IRINA SHAYK LOOKS GORGEOUS IN A BIKINI

We kicked Monday right in the teeth, didn’t we? It’s the toughest day of the week to get through and we got down on one knee and smacked it out the park. It wasn’t as tough as you thought would be, was it? I’ll bet that little Miranda Monday got the day going on the right foot for you. I’d even bet that the Ultimate Water Fail Compilation kept you going till lunch and then before you knew it, it was 15h00 and you were sliding downhill to knockoff-time. Aren’t you seeing a trend here? Let’s put the trend to the test by getting your Tuesday off on a similar note. Here is the lovely Irina Shayk posing in a bikini for the Agua Bendita Summer 2015 Collection.

LATEST MUSICAL DISCOVERY: FRENCH FILMS – ‘TAKE YOU WITH ME’

I got introduced to music from a Finnish band called French Films this past weekend and found myself really digging their vibe. It had my foot a-tapping and that’s generally a good sign. Their music reminds me of what The Killers sounded like in their early days and considering I’m something of an undercover The Killers fan, French Films are right up my undercover alley. Plugin in your earphones, turn this song up and enjoy this with me. Then tell me your thoughts on the music.

noblest rogue - a guide to being a man

GUIDE TO BEING A MAN VOL. VI

This is the final instalment of a 6-volume series which involved a few tips from the guys at Goldman Sachs on being a man. When it boils down to it, you are who you are and as you journey through your life, you will be presented with gems of advice which you can choose to either discard or make use of. The choice is yours and if you feel something will nourish you and help you grow, then use it. If it won’t, don’t. I have found that most of their tips have made sense. Like the “ignore the boos. They usually come from the cheap seats” advice below. Or the “never take an ex back.” That last one I’m wrestling with at the moment. Perhaps thats a story for another day.

I’VE ACCEPTED THE #MISSIONSAMSUNG BLOGGER CHALLENGE

The Noblest Rogue was recently invited to take part in the third leg of the #MissionSamsung Blogger Challenge which involves ten Lifestyle/Entertainment/Foodie bloggers making use of a provided Samsung device to complete a series of tasks. The idea is that the bloggers write about the experience they have with Samsung’s product whilst completing these tasks  – and naturally punting the brand in the process – with the ‘winning’ blogger getting to keep the product at the end of the challenge. I am not sure what constitutes a ‘winning blog’ but am sure to educate myself on the finer details in the near future. The first leg of The #MissionSamsung Blogger Challenge featured the Samsung NX300 camera and the second a Samsung LED Smart TV, whilst the third – the one I am about to take part in – features the new Samsung Smart Microwave Oven.
