Jakkie Louw – Is Dit Net Ek Of Is Als Tos?

In Is Dit Net Ek Of Is Alles Tos? deur griffin en Chopper CharlieRek jou bek

Ons (griffin & chopper) se boek, Is Dit Net Ek Of Is Als Tos? word hierdie jaar (2019) teen Augustus se kant 11 jaar oud. Om dit te celebrate het ons besluit om alfabeties met die lys af te gaan en ‘n paar topics uit die boek te kies om weekliks hier op Watkykjy te publish, seinde dat ons die regte besit. Dis lekker kort stukkies wat jy op die kakhuis kan lees. Dink daaraan as jou klein zef kakhuisbybeltjie met pitkos vir elke dag… Wel, elke dag tot ons die boek se einde bereik.

Jakkie Louw
Dalk moet Jakkie sy naam na Yucky toe verander sodat dit by sy musikale talent ten volle kan weergee. Hy moet net asseblief nie met Nicholis kragte snoer nie. Vader behoede ons as die Jakkalis Louw-orkes (met lekker vet doef-doef backtracks) se eerste platinum plaat klap. Aggenee, ek het reeds te veel gesê. Dit is nou swart op wit en onafwendbaar. Sweef my gou die uitveër.

Is Dit Net Ek Of Is Al Tos is in 2008 geskryf en uitgegee en daar was so baie copies verkoop dat ons dit in 2009 laat herdruk het. All-in-all is daar nog net so 10 onverkoopte copies oor op aarde en ons sal teen Augustus se kant besluit wat om met hulle te maak. Kort antwoord – dis nie tans te koop nie.

Well, hello again there, our soutie-van die-aarde-readers!

Welcome back to your own little Rooinek hoekie here on Wat Kyk Jy?! It has been blerrie tough in Safafrika this past week, what with the rain turning people on their way to work on the N1 into even bigger doses? And the loadshedding across Mzanzi? What the entire fuck, ESKOM?  It even had old Cyril Ramapoespas punintentially shocked. How did this catch you by surprise, prez? Boet, are you actually living inside Zuma’s turtle shell now? Blink twice for ‘yes’ if you need our help.

By the way, guys, “poespas” is not a vloekwoord. It is legit another Afrikaans word for “deurmekmaarspul” which means “fuck-up” (which is totes a vloekwoord in your taal). You’ll learn lots of Afrikaans here, one word at a time.

If you want to avoid a poespas this weekend, we’ve got you covered. It looks like the rain will persist over most of our country and there is no loadshedding planned… YET. So grab your jammies, pillow, duvet, some hot chocolate and if you’re into alcohol, I would imagine Pimm’s  and cucumbers. You can klap a single brannas and coke if you can “verstaan but not praat die taal”.

What look you this weekend? You look at our lekker list, compliments of The Plumlist.

 10#Who is going to be roasting AKA the Supa Mega?
n a perfect yin-and-yang, rock versus rap face-off, the legendary bad boy (born BADenhorst) Francois van Coke will take centre stage and drop the mic to try to face off AKA. Having already told the polisie what to do with their polisiekar this local rock idol will have no skaam when he gets into the ring with the boss of rap. Is he the bloke to get AKA to choke?

 #9 Just Go with It (Valentine’s weekend choice)
Just Go with It was one of the better days for Sandler, who finds himself on a Hawaiian weekend trip opposite Jennifer Aniston and Bond girl hopeful, Brooklyn Decker. Starting a romance on a careless lie isn’t exactly how most folks want to tell their “how we met” story, but Sandler’s romcoms are easy-watching guilty pleasures.

Johnny is nie dood nie is an inspiring tribute to the Afrikaans alternative music movement”. In this award-winning Afrikaans film (with English subtitles), a group of friends gather to celebrate the life of musician Johannes Kerkorrel.

 #7 30 Rock
Definitely don’t watch Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix if you don’t want to clean your house. Because once you’ve watched it, you’ll want to. You’ll be buying clear plastic boxes, mega rolls of bin bags and calling up your nearest NGO to come and pick up all your junk. (Or, at least, that will be your intention.)

 #6 The Prince and Me (Valentine’s weekend choice)
We loved Julia Stiles opposite Heath Ledger in The Taming of the Shrew-inspired teen classic, 10 Things I Hate About You. The experience must be what prompted the angsty Stiles to take the lead in the modern Cinderella adaptation The Prince and Me.

 #2 Wedding guests are elegantly wasted in Wonderlus
You might be surprised to learn that our film industry is actually one of the oldest in the world, dating back to 1896. Yet, South African film carries a stigma… in part owing to our slapstick Leon Schuster candid camera era.

Our randomized trailer pick of the week

Each week we take a number from 1 to 10 from our list of suggestions and put it through a randomizer to choose a trailer to show you. We’re not doing that this week, because we found something totally awesome-mer to show you. Something that might tug at the nostalgic heartstrings. Hence our not-so-misleading headline, “Holy crap, Batman! Where did you dig this shit out?”

Kids from the 70s and 80s, step right up! And those of you who grew up in the nineties and naughties, take a careful step forward and witness the crap we had to endure on TV as laities…

Detective Alexander Holmes has no luck with his partners. They always end up at the hospital or the morgue. But this won’t happen to his very new partner, YoYo, a sophisticated and indestructible android. The series follows their adventures and misadventures, as Holmes teaches YoYo what it is like to be human, while trying to keep his quirky partner’s true nature a secret from criminals and fellow cops.

Remember Yoyo accessing a keypad under his tie or pushing his nose to take a picture? This series only lasted 13 episodes. Here is episode 1. For the rest, you’re on your own, buddy…

Dis Valentynsdag! Loop haal jou tjoklits, tissues en tulpe. En kalmeer julle gulpe.

In Rolbees Reviews deur RolbeesRek jou bek

So, dis alweer 14 Februarie en daar is, soos elke jaar, weer gemengde gevoelens onder homo sapiens oor die waarde en betekenis van Valentynsdag. Party mense raak opgewonde en hulle gesigte verhelder sommer as die beweerde “dag van liefde” aanbreek, terwyl ander net hulle koppe skud en die hele spul bekyk asof dit ‘n godsdientige kultusgroep is wat iewers op ‘n plaas in afsondering bly, onder mekaar inteel, en bestaansboerdery toepas. Party is verlief en ander snik trane van eensaamheid. Party begin ‘n verhouding, ander versterk hulle bestaande band. Ander breek op.

That’s how it goes. So die grootste debat is of dit nou genuine oor liefde gaan of net oor verbruikersgenot en inkopieterapie? I’m a material girl in a material world, hoor. Madonna het dit verstaan. Die oorsprong van Valentynsdag kan eintlik gevind word in Christengeskiedenis maar dit kan jy self gaan Google. Ek is nie ‘n kenner of ‘n dosent nie. Ek is meer geïntereseerd in die verskil tussen love songs wat dae soos hierdie aanhits en dié songs wat die antithesis is daarvan. Kan mens iets leer van liefde of die menslike kondisie deur ‘n paar verskillende tunes te luister? Goeie vraag.

Wat is die liefde, anyway? Is dit ‘n chemiese reaksie wat mense aanspoor om die mees gepaste DNA te identifiseer onder mekaar en dan te zaber sodat die mensdom nie uitsterf nie? Of is daar iets meer metafisies, geheimsinnig of spiritueel verbonde daaraan? Is dit so eenvoudig soos daai geykte cliché: liefde is ‘n werkwoord; of is dit full-on passie of begeerte soos in die ou soft porn movies? Ek het vinnig vanoggend ‘n paar van my favourite love songs in ‘n playlist op Spotify bymekaar gegooi en ek het net weer besef wat liefde ookal is, dis soms so eenvoudig en soms so fokken complicated. Partykeer altwee tegelykertyd. Ek gaan ‘n paar random tunes kies en try sin maak van dit alles? Yeah right.
*Maak so sin maak van alles*.

Van Halen, Tina Turner en Foreigner het in die eighties probeer uitfigure wat liefde is. Hoe weet jy wanneer dit gebeur? Wat de fok het dit met enigiets te doen? Wonder of hulle dit toe uitgefigure het? Hulle het verskeie dekades gehad.

Oooh, positiewe love songs. What a pleasure. Alhoewel The Cure in die eighties die mees depressing skaaf-jou-polse-af-op-die-sypaadjie love songs geskryf het was daar daai een uplifting song Friday I’m in Love wat net so befok was, as wat dit nog steeds cheesy is. Dis right up there met Katrina and the Waves se Walking on Sunshine. Laasgenoemde is my favourite feelgood love song van alle tye. But then again is daar Diana Ross se Upside Down. Did you just assume I’m a boy? Ha! Upside down, GIRL you turn me! Inside out and round and round. Crowded House se It’s Only Natural is nog ‘n personal favourite. Bietjie meer recent songs? Mark Ronson en Bruno Mars se Uptown Funk is ook die shit!

Baie love songs gaan oor soul searching, en dis ook ‘n manier om vir daai spesiale persoon te sê jy smaak hulle stukkend.  Toe ek jonger was, was dit my favourite tipe love songs. Soos Lenny Kravitz se Just Can’t Get You Off My Mind.  Ooooh, Led Zeppelin se version van die Willie Dixon song I Can’t Quit You Babe is ook befok. No Greta Van Fleet jokes please. Ek is sensitief daaroor.

Dan is daar die dreaded friend zone. Daar is ook te veel van daai songs! Die eerste een wat ek gehoor het was REO Speedwagon se I Just Can’t Fight This Feeling. Maar daar is ook Lenny Kravitz se I’ll be Waiting en Mumford en Sons se I Will Wait, Bob Marley se I Don’t Wanna Wait in Vain, Queen se Breakthrough. Ek sal die hele dag hier sit. Get it? No? Hehe.

Die mees fun songs is die sexy time songs as mens nog baie gereeld stout is. Gewoonlik aan die begin van ‘n verhouding. Jy weet, soos Sexual Healing van Marvin Gaye, You Sexy Thing van Hot Chocolate en daai Short Dick Man song. Just kidding, nie daai een nie! Barry White werk ook nogal. Old school R&B is gemaak vir shagging.

Ok, en dan is daar daai poesbedroewe songs wat mens luister as jy in jou moer gestuur is en alles fok uitmekaar uit. Chris Isaak se Blue Spanish Sky, Tori Amos se Tear in Your Hand, Neil Diamond se Love on the Rocks. Daar is kakbaie sulke hartseer tunes. Seker die oorgrote meerderheid van love songs is huilerig en dis geen fokken surprise nie. As jy al die drank uitgedrink het by jou local en rebound flings gehad het dan is daar niks beter vir ‘n gebreekte hart as om ‘n goeie ou love song te skryf nie. Led Zeppelin se Your Time is Gonna Come, spesiale karma vir die hartebreker girls.

Ek weet nie, deesdae is die love songs wat my interest trek die meer realistiese tipe soos Damien Rice se I Don’t Want To Change You. Die gebruik van meer interesting metafore soos Lunatic Wolf se Roses en Lucy Kruger and the Lost Boys se Fort. Of selfs kief temas soos die reïnkarnasie van liefde oor eeue. Sting se A Thousand Years byvoorbeeld.  Maybe word ek nou oud. Minder cheesy.

Ek sal nog bou aan hierdie playlist, dis nog aan die begin fase. Wat? Soek julle nou ‘n konklusie?  Hey, don’t look at me. What do I know about love? Ek geniet maar eerder net die tunes! Happy Valentines Day, suckers!
