From Superman to fabulous cats

2013-06-11 13:56
So Superman will be hitting the American big screens in exactly three days. Sadly here in South Africa we will have to wait until 28 June before we can share in the Man of Steel magic. Apparently it will be well worth the wait. The first reviews are starting to come in and it sounds like Superman is winning over the hearts of the critics. No surprise there. I mean the guy is a journalist after all and secretly every male journalist would like to think they have a little bit of Mr. Kent somewhere inside them.

Ever since founding out that Karl Lagerfeld wanted to marry his cat (we are really not making this up), we've been totally obsessed with finding out more about the fabulous Choupette. We managed to find six very interesting titbits on Karl’s cat that very few people knew. Like, did you know Choupette will be gracing the cover of the July issue of German Vogue? Insane.

We are super proud of local movie Fanie Fourie’s Lobola that won Best Film at the 2013 Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) Golden Space Needle Audience Awards on Sunday. This of course comes as no surprise as Fanie Fourie’s Lobola previously won audience awards at the Sedona International Film Festival in Arizona, as well as the Jozi Film Festival, nogal.

Even more local is lekker news: Did you hear about the scanning device designed, built, and distributed in South Africa was showcased on United States TV show Grey's Anatomy? Apparently the cast of Grey's Anatomy gathered around the machine and looked on in awe as it did an entire body x-ray of an injured person in 13 seconds - a procedure that would take around 20 minutes with conventional x-rays. Proudly South African indeed.

Well, that’s it for today.
We’ll chat again next week,
