Maria Kirilenko is ‘n voormalige professionele Russiese tennisspeler wat byvoorbeeld in 2002 die US Open Girls’ Singles gewen het. Sy het ‘n hele paar Grand Slam quarterfinals gehaal en was sterk op pad om die tenniswêreld te verower maar oOngelukkig het sy haar knieg opgefok hier teen die einde van 2013 en nooit regtig weer recover nie. Sy het intussen getrou en twee kinders is uit die huwelik gebore.
As jy, soos ek, ‘n moerse tennis fan is, vat so halfuur en kyk die highlights van die 2010 Australian open in Melbourner tussen Kirilenko en Sharapova. Die twee pragtige Russiese tannies is nogal tjommies ook.
Wie is jou gunsteling tennisspeler van alle tye?
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.
#8 Johnny is nie Dood Nie
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.
#5 Interview with a (scary) mermaid
The second season of scary-mermaid hit series Siren is now streaming on Showmax, with new episodes coming weekly, express from the US. We caught up with actress Eline Powell, who plays Ryn, a mermaid who comes ashore at Bristol Cove with dramatic results…
#4 Six cooking shows with an African twist Anyone else prop up a tablet in their kitchen and watch cooking shows while caramelising onions? Just us? Move over Salt, Fire, Acid, Heat, our local culinary stars are finding a new home for their cooking series on streaming platforms.
#3 Flowers is a dark British comedy that’s unflinching in its study of depression Showmax brings you a jam-packed line-up to start 2019, with highly anticipated series you won’t find anywhere else, including the first Showmax original drama called The Girl From St Agnes, and local gems such as kykNET’s brand-new Dwaalster and Mzansi Magic’s Lockdown S3!
#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.
#1. What’s new on Showmax in February 2019 Showmax brings you a bumper crop of series excellence this month, with no fewer than 13 shows from HBO, plus brand-new episodes of The Magicians Season 4 delivered to your screens every week, express from the US. Some seriously good picks to last you a few weekends.
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…
