I’ve been quiet, I know. I’ll offer no apology worth your time so I won’t even try. Those of you who’ve been following The Noblest Rogue for some time will understand and know that the last two months of every year are very hectic for me business-wise and due to me only wanting to offer you quality content on this platform, I tend to rather go silent during this time frame than offer up half-arsed pieces about bullshit blah blah blah. And the silence is set to continue for the next few weeks as I take a much needed break away from all things which require a plug and charger. It’s that special time of year in Cape Town when the beach beckons and the soul responds and I dare not suppress the need to have the sand between my toes and the sun on my back.
You’ve got to hand it to ol’ Matty. He’s upped his game in recent years and moved beyond the blonde-haired, blue-eyed bugger with the southern drawl that had chicks weak at the knees the world over. Whilst he may still possesses this power over the women of the world, he’s recently taken on roles which have required him to do more than simply take his shirt off and smile. His brief cameo in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ was worthy of an Oscar alone, whilst his performance in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ was incredible and saw him scoop an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role. How then is it possible that Matty went from winning an Oscar to acting in a trio of Lincoln adverts? Sure it’s an easy gig but really? Matt sits there and drawls on about some spaced out opinions on why we are here and how long he’s been driving a Lincoln for blah blah blah. Fuck me, at one stage there is even a live bull thrown in the mix. It wasn’t long before someone decided that enough was enough. Thankfully that someone was Jim Carrey. This is pure genius!
It may have taken its time to arrive but now that summer is here, I’m keen to make use of it. There’s no doubt that Cape Town has a plethora of things to do during silly season and if you don’t get out and about, you might miss out on some serious fun. In all honesty, you don’t really have any excuses not to get out because of the amount of daylight we get during the summer. During the winter we look at pure darkness after 18h30 whilst in summer we’re blessed with sunsets closer to 20h30. Hell, you can still catch a tan on Clifton at 20h00 during the summer. What a pleasure! Another blessing in the Fairest Cape are our beaches. Blistering white sand, fresh blue ocean and sun-kissed bodies are how I’ve remembered my summers in the Cape and I’m planning on making more of these memories this summer. On Blue Flag Beaches nonetheless and it’s a privilege to say that the Western Cape holds 27 of these Blue Flag beaches.
Take 05:29 out of your Monday morning and watch these Ultimate Fails of October from the chaps at Fail Army. There is honestly no better way to kick off your Monday! Oh greatness, the groom at 01:04 and the chick who’s trying to sell her cat throughout cracked me up. Oh and the roller coaster chap at 04:43! Expect your fair share of nut-shots, scorpions, face-plants and parkour-style bails.
Before you climb into your car and head to Rocking The Daisies to ghush your faces off this weekend, take a second to read this brilliant article by Dan Nash from Bangers & Nash. With
The Silly Season summer about to kick off in the Cape, we’re all fully aware of the awesome parties which will present itself along the way. From music festivals to trance parties, the chances that you get exposed to and offered drugs – in all forms – are great. What I appreciate about Dan’s article is that he stresses that we should rather accept that drugs are a part of our society rather than condemn or condone them and with this mindset offer some tips to help you “rave safe, bruh.”
For no other reason than it’s a Thursday, here is a compilation of humans plough their heads and/or faces into mother earth. Some are at pace, others are not. Either way, this shit is funny.
I’ve had a good look at Apple’s latest device offerings, namely the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Firstly there was the promo video when Apple first launched the phone which told you everything you need to know about the phones and then there was the drop test, which gave you an idea of how each device handled a drop to its edge, side and face. Of course with new devices come new features which give an indication of what the developers have been getting up to and whether they’ve worked hard on improvement. With that in mind, here are 10 of the top features for the iPhone 6.
