Yo-Landi from Die Antwoord was a total twat to Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes) in Germany

In Die Antwoord deur griffin4 Eiertjies

Natasha Khan, professionally known as Bat for Lashes, is a very talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from London. On Saturday, June 23 back in 2012, she was on the bill to perform live on stage at Southside Festival in Germany. It is an alternative music festival which has been going strong for 20 years and back in 2012 attracted a crowd of just over 50,000 attendees. If you’re not familiar with Bat For Lashes‘ music, have a look at one of her music videos to get an idea of her voice and vibe:

Kind of soothing, right? Unfortunately for Natasha Kahn, the cunts known as Die Antwoord was also performing at Southside Festival on the same day and on the same stage (Red Stage) out of the possible four stages. Bad luck of the draw, hey? However, she had a premium time slot at 20:30, while Die Antwoord had an afternoon slot at 16:00. This could possibly explain Yo-Landi’s extremely childish and jealous behavior on that day, as we came across a post in a photography forum from back in Agust, 2012 – just under two months after the festival took place in Germany:

I lost all respect for Die Antwoord after witnessing their antics backstage in catering at Southside Festival in Germany earlier this year.
A female vocalist was in her dressing room warming her voice. The dressing rooms were directly below the catering balcony where Die Antwoord were eating. This chick, whoever it was, must have been up next on the bill as her vocal warm-ups were in full swing, consistent and loud. The entire dining area could easily hear her and it sounded kinda nice, so I thought anyway. Yo-Landi Vi$$er, the female vocalist from Die Antwoord apparently thought differently:

She starts yelling, more accurately; squealing (if you’ve seen their show you will agree) into the air at the top of her voice:

Shut the **** up!!
You can’t sing for ****, you absolutely SUCK!!!
You know the entire place can hear you?
And you ****ing suck, so shut the **** up!
For ****s sake!!

The chick downstairs did stop, and then the entire catering went into a complete hush, bewildered at what had just happened.

Die Antwoord – with that one outburst of umness, it is YOU that suck!
Arrogant pricks.

This anecdote doesn’t come from just some random festival goer. His name is Benon Koebsch and he is a professional international music, band portraits & tour photographer from Australia. I went through his website and his portfolio includes bands such as AC/DC, Alice in Chains, Anthrax, Avenged Sevenfold, Blink 182, Cannibal Corpse, Clutch, The Cult, Deftones and Die Antwoord. We’re stopping right here, but go check out the complete list of international acts which he has captured so far. It is very impressive. It also speaks of some level of professionalism because not every idiot with a camera gets granted access to festivals and get to operate on this kind of level and close proximity to artists.

The incident in Germany took place, not even three months after Die Antwoord attacked Andy Butler at the Future Music Festival in Adelaide, Australia. Fast forward another two months in 2012 after Southside Fesitval in Germany, to Voodoo Fest in New Orleans. Two people who seem to be involved in the music industry had this to say about Ninja and Yolandi:

By now you should be familiar with Benjay Crossman, so I reached out to him to get his recollection from the incident in Germany at Southside Festival:

“I drew some hearts with a marker on the band sign on the door of Bat For Lashes. I liked her band. Twenty minutes later I was walking past and said hello. She asked me straight up if I was the one who drew the hearts on their sign and I confirmed it. We chatted for a bit and then I asked permission to take a photo of her, as there was a super strict “no photo policy” in the artists area. Around twenty minutes after that, I was sitting upstairs with Yo-Landi, Ninja and Richard (our lighting guy). We listened to the beautiful vocals coming from down below. Yo-Landi absolutely hates it when other woman get more attention than her, so she started yelling at Bat For Lashes from our table. After Yo-Landi yelled all that crap, Leo Herrera, our tour manager, came up to tell her that the organizers were upset and just laid a complaint. Yo-Landi just tries to cause shit and drama to get the attention and act all punk.”

Oh and I asked Ben if he perhaps had some video footage of the incident on that big old hard drive of his.
He did.
Look at how Yo-Landi looks around and at the camera for approval for her really ‘awesome’ and ‘funny’ behavior.
It is really fokken embarrassing, this craving for attention and acceptance:

I like how Yo-landi adds “A bit of the old Jesse..”, referring to Aaron Paul’s character, Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad.  Ninja has forever been trying to reach out to Vince Gilligan, the writer of Breaking Bad, to direct his (Ninja’s) Zef TV series. We all know what that turned into – some Xhosa dude with a balaclava wrapped in a blanket, saying whatever shit Ninja needs him to say.

This one sentence from Ben’s recollection kind of stood out and sums up a big part of Yo-Landi’s personality – the low self-esteem part:
Yo-Landi absolutely hates it when other woman get more attention than her
Go look at the Bats For Lashes video video again. Natasha Kahn has heaps of talent. It is understandable that Yo-Landi felt threatened by her voice and her warming up routine.

Another example? When Yo-Landi turned 30 back in 2012, she had a birthday party in the poor Jobhannesburg hood of Fietas at Slapchip’s house (one of the guys from the Rich Bitch music video) on Friday the 30th of November. Yo-Landi’s birthday is on the 1st of December (1982), so it makes sense that she would have partied past midnight to celebrate her actual birthday, probably with champagne and Savannah – the only alcohol Yo-Landi drinks. Yo-Landi and Ninja don’t really have a lot of people they can call friends, because of the way they treat people around and close to them, so she invited a few guys from Fietas (like JP from the Baby’s On Fire music video which she dated for a while, you know, for the sake of their ‘art’) and Kezia – who was probably more of an employee than a friend, as she worked her ass off on all the music video sets for Die Antwoord, and here is a shot in the dark – dealing with their shitty behavior on set on a daily basis for months on end. Unfortunately for Yo-Landi, Lady Gaga performed at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on November 30 in 2012 and her friend Kezia, decided to go to the Lady Gaga stadium concert in stead of Yo-Landi’s birthday party in Fietas. I mean, who wouldn’t? A small birthday party in Fietas with a bunch of guys just sitting around, swearing, smoked out of their brackets, sound like a really, really lame party. To use a word that Ninja and Yo-Landi appropriated from the kids in Fietas – it sounds like it would have been a major dwanky party.

Yo-Landi saw this as the ultimate betrayal of friendship because deep down in her heart she truly for realy realzies believes that Lady Gaga is her sworn arch enemy. Just go look at all the stuff Ninja and Yo-Landi say about the pop icon who is a thousand times bigger and more successful than them. Go look at the video Die Antwoord made for Fatty Boom Boom where they make a prawn come out of Lady Gaga’s vagina as part of their story-line and diss. The biggest irony ever? Yo-Landi’s buddy, Kezia, worked on the Fatty Boom Boom video. Her name is in the credits. Yo-Landi completely lost her shit with her “friend”.

Some parting questions to ponder:
Was Yo-Landi jealous of Zheani all along?
Was Yo-Landi jealous of all the au pairs and child minders who got hired and fired?
The female managers?
Dancers?
Actresses in their music videos?
Ninja’s “thousands” of girlfriends?
Cast members of Chappie?

Oh, and WHERE THE FUCK IS YOUR ADOPTED SON, TOKKIE?

Dan Roodt – 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.

Dan Roodt
Dan Roodt is een van daai Afrikaners wat deur gebroke akademiese redenering ‘n naam probeer maak as beskermer van die Afrikaanse taal en kultuur. ‘n Rol wat hy heeltemal vir homself toegeëien het, dalk een Kersfees toe sy Kerskous besonder skraal was.
Want, en hiervan is ek seker, ou Dan het liefde nodig. Sommer baie.
Op sy kwasi-intellektuele website, PRAAG, het dowwe Dan dit oor ‘n hele spul “taboe” vraagstukke. Een van die artikels vra byvoorbeeld of “Suid-Afrika ooit weer ‘n Afrikanerstaat kan word”. Nou enigiemand met ‘n greintjie verstand sal hierdie onmiddelik herken as ‘n tos vraag en nie ‘n taboe-vraag nie. Tos vraag.  Dan. Tos vraag.
Sy oplossing is egter die clincher. Dan het sulke kleurvolle oplossings, soos om al die Tswanas in Suid-Afrika na Botswana toe te sluif, sodat daar meer plek is. In ruil betaal ons die Tswanas so paar sent om te waai. Bwhaaaa-hahahaha… om weer die land oor te neem – ten koste van die “swartes”. Jy weet, hulle is bietjie meer as ons en was eerste hier en die land behoort aan hulle en so aan. Klein struikelblokkies, maar hy sien wel lig aan die einde van die tonnel.
Ons eie Boere-filosoof gaan dan sover – kry gou asem terug na lagbui – om Antarktika as nuwe tuisland te oorweeg, maar keur dit dan weer af: Eerstens oor die wêreld ooreengekom het om dit as navorsingstasie te deel. Tweedens omdat dit snerpend koud en nogal onleefbaar is. Wham! Hoe’s dit vir ‘n argument?
Bly seker Afrikaners (rock spiders) regtig onder klippe? Wat de fok maak mens met sulke mense?
Wel, dis maklik. jy vra hulle om Antarktika toe te trek en jy betaal hulle ‘n paar sente. Daar is mos donners baie plek. Net soos in Botswana.
En die beste van alles? Dis heeltemal wit daar.

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.

Our top 10 weekly selection of DSTV Now | Showmax | YouTube | Netflix | Amazon Prime

Back in the days of low flying Pterodactyls, at the tender age of ten, I participated at the South African junior tennis championships in Johannesburg. It was a grueling, exhausting week of intense tennis, but at the same time one of the most memorable and rewarding sporting events of my life. I felt like a champ, because the organisers and especially the sponsors made sure that each kid felt  like a professional athlete – we received brand new cotton socks, shirts, a packet of strings, water bottles, sweat bands, as well as those all too familiar orange sachets of isotonic powder sports sachets. Is Game even still around? I ended up ranking number 173 in South Africa and I have nothing to show for it, because “What fokken participation award? We gave you free shit! Get the fuck outta here! Damn kids…”
Participating at such an event was the reward itself, plus did I really want to find out that there were only 200 kids in total? I seriously don’t know the answer but to me it felt like there were thousands of kids and I’m sticking to that belief. Because it puts me in the top of the 5 tiers, medal or no medal. Thanks, denial! I owe you a beer! 

More or less three years ago a section of our group of friends (the cool section, hey?) decided that we were going to give old people’s marbles a go in order to stay out of trouble over that December, ie not getting fucked up drunk every day. We thought we were shit hot because not even a month after that, myself, my wife and another friend found ourselves competing in a friendly bowls triplets competition at the Bowls SA headquarters in Pretoria. We thought we were ready. How hard can the sport of lawn bowls possibly be? You don’t need the full match report because we got our asses handed to us  by people who were on average 150 years older than us. They also generally seemed around 15 years fitter than us. Out of 40 teams who participated, we came 38th. Or as scientists would call it – third fokken worst ever.

La-Hoooooo-Za-Her!!

Now, we paid a lot of money to enter this old people competition (R300 each) and it included a lunch and prizes. The lunch was delicious and I was quite happy with the six defective tumbler glasses I “won” (because in effect I paid for it) but my spirits got dampened very quickly when every single person (all 120 of us) received a fokken participation medal to hang around our necks. Jissis.     

Medals and trophies used to be awarded to winners only but have recently been reduced to little more than party tricks – a symbolic pat on the back which you can put on the mantelpiece above the fireplace or get to hang around your neck to remind you of an experience rather than  a token of true achievement. Take a selfie and put it on Facebook, for fuck’s sake! It has the same effect. Not everybody gets to drive a fancy car, because if would diminish in value. The same goes for rewards and awards – when they are handed out like free t-shirts at a political rally, the truly exceptional participants and players are slighted and fucked with. 

Imagine Hollywood applied this madness to the Oscars and the Emmy Awards?
“Hey there, pretty person from Lydenburg, South Africa. Here is an Emmy for you!”

OK, sorry, that was a terribly kak example, because Elizabeth Steinberg (originally from Lydenburg) did in fact win an Emmy – for graphic design and art direction at the end of 2015 for her work in a documentary for National Geographic entitled Future Cat – an animation film telling a story of how big cats adapt to the changing planet. I’ve just been waiting for over four years for the right moment to #humblebrag about my cool friend’s truly deserving and exceptional achievement.
#proudlySA

Winning should just be a marker of greatness in a particular moment, because the opportunity is there for the next person or group to work for and to seize that moment. Yes, sometimes the same group or person wins it over and over again. Think of Michael Schumacher. Or Game of Thrones. Or Michael Schumager starring in Game Of Thrones as the oke who rides the dragons fucked up fast.

Winning is a transient state, a short-lived burst of energy of sorts. The same goes for being nominated or making the short list for a prize, medal, reward or awards. And by association, if you hang out in the winner’s camp and support them or are in some way instrumental  in reaching their goals, it makes you a winner in their books as well. Like the South African streaming services who buy into all the befokte cool stuff we get to watch locally. Here are some of the shows who walked away with the 2019 Emmy nominees and wins:

Multiple awards and nominations:
Game of Thrones (Showmax) walked away with 14 nominations and 2 wins
Barry (Showmax) was nominated 9 times.
Escape at Dannemora (Showmax) got 7 nods of the head.
Chernobyl (Showmax) got nominated 6 times and took home 3 golden ladies.
Better Call Saul (DStv) and Veep (Showmax) each raked in 5 nominations
A Very English Scandal (Showmax) was nominated 4 times.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (DStv), The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (DStv), Sharp Objects (Showmax) and Succession (Showmax) each had 3 nominations while Hand Maid’s Tale (Showmax) received 2 nominations.

These shows got a hat tip each:
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah (DStv)
The Late Late Show with James Corden (DStv)
The Amazing Race (DStv)
dstv- The Voice (DStv with a reminder the SA version on Showmax)
True Detective (Showmax)
