Relax bietjie jou tiete met Daaf Vapor se tunes

In Rolbees Reviews deur RolbeesRek jou bek

Net soos dit moeilik raak om musiek te maak wat outentiek en “nuut” klink, net so uitdagend word dit om reviews te skryf wat oorspronklik is en ‘n substantiewe boodskap kan oordra. Ek voel of ek al die uitdrukkings, cool idees en woorde wat my brein mee vorendag kan kom al opgebruik het. Autotune my reviews? Social media het meer van ‘n vloek as ‘n seën geword deesdae. Jirre, hoeveel van dieselfde kosfototjies, geprogrameerde herinneringe, check-ins by restaurante, selfies wat ge-photoshop is, herwinde meme grappietjies en clichéd wyshede kan jy konstant in jou brein forseer voor jy wil kots? Dit maak mense regoor die planeet depressief en angstig. “I’m living with the black dog, a dark and savage beast. I try my best to tame him, but I keep him on a leash. I got turn tables and microphones for all the voices in my head. I can play a mean guitar, but rock and roll is dead.” Hoekom soek mense validation op Facebook en Instagram as hulle lewens dan so perfek is?

Die tunes op hierdie album is catchy pop, alternative en reggae. Die lirieke is nie eintlik bedoel vir vlak en dom mense nie en dis nie maklik om in ‘n boksie te druk nie. Op die oppervlakte klink dit na fun, nostalgiese musiek maar daar is baie dieper undertones en vrae oor die moderne samelewing wat of blatant gesing word of wegkruip tussen die lyne, reg om jou te oorval op ‘n random Dinsdagmiddag. “Wake up! You’re stuck in a dream!” Hoekom bevraagteken meer mense nie die “normaliteit” van die stapelgek wêreld waarin ons leef nie? “Hello, can anyone hear me? I’m looking for sanity, in a world that’s gone mad”.

Digitale integrasie het ons lewens en menseverhoudinge heeltemaal oorgeneem. Gee niemand om dat ons finaal elke aspek van ons lewens verkoop het aan die corporate masjien nie? Couch activism? What a joke. Negatiewe trolle. Been there, done that. Boelies? Fok net plein weg! Is mense so verslaaf daaraan on hulle mediocre lewens oor en oor te verkoop as opwindende dat hulle blind staan teenoor hoe dit ons langtermyn affekteer? Al hoe minder mense koop dit, by the way. Dit wat jy post om FOMO te vermy verdrink anyway net in ‘n see van die nuwe middelmatigheid. Hoe real is ons digital lewens? Jou 5 Seconds of Fame is nou meer soos ‘n sekonde lank.
Spot Daaf Vapor met die status quo of lewer hy net kommentaar? Albei, dink ek. Oorbeklemtoon social media die negatiewe goed soos korrupsie en misdaad? Meer as in die ou printed media en TV van ouds? Raak ons gevoelloos teenoor al die posts van ons helde wat elke dag sterf? “All of my heroes are dead, they quietly slipped away”. Die titelsnit Northam Lights is ‘n Pink Floydian psychedelic hat-tip na daai eertydse rock festival op die plaas waarheen niemand hierdie jaar toe kon gaan nie. Daaf Vapor gee ‘n paar oplossings vir al die probleme waaroor hy sing. Net in die songs It’s a nice Day for Freedom en Tribe eintlik. Geniet die planeet en buitelewe. Wees life vir jou bure. Soek weer jou tribe. Mense wat saakmaak. Take back control of your life. Die regte lewe en die digitale een is nie veronderstel om te verskil nie. Persoonlik, filter ek al die bullshit clutter wat mense aan my try afsmeer deesdae…

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.
