Jy blaai in die argief vir 2010 Februarie.

Prelude to June – CD Launch

Februarie 28, 2010 in Sonder kategorie

Jitte, kan ek nou ooit vir julle verduidelik hoe dit voel om jou kind op die verhoog te sien, en te hoor hoe mense sy naam skree?  Ek dink nie daar is woorde nie.

Die Launch was ‘n absolute sukses!!!!

Die suppoting acts:

Die eerste een was … “A fine state”

Die oumens ore het maar gesukkel om te hoor waaroor hulle sing.  Die dromspeler was egter baie goed!!

Toe het ons geluister na “Alleen na Desember”.  Hierdie band was op “rockspider” en het blykbaar baie goed gedoen daar.

En die volgende foto is ‘n ‘mosh pit’,

so as jou tiener met blou kolle en bloeiende neus by die huis kom na ‘n ‘show’ is die kanse goed dat hy in ‘n ‘mosh pit’ was.  Hier gaan hulle mal.  Die koppe word ge’bang’, hulle stamp mekaar en hardloop rond in geen orde nie.  Maar blykbaar is dit die teken dat die ‘audience’ van die musiek hou wanneer hulle ‘n ‘mosh pit’ vorm.  Ek dink dit kan vergelyk word met ons “staande ovasie”

En toe die oomblik waarop almal gewag het ….

Prelude to June!!!!!

Ag lyk hulle nie stunning nie?

Prelude to June

Kyk net die aandag aan detail met die banners en als.

En hier is my seun …

Ek  dink dat “Prelude to June”, met hulle unieke styl en professionaliteit, nog groot hoogtes gaan bereik.

Hierdie outjie dink ook so want hy is bereid om sy broek daarop te verwed 🙂

Dit was nou ‘n ‘eye opener’ …

Februarie 25, 2010 in Sonder kategorie

Julle weet ek probeer soos hierdie tough cookie voorkom wat geen nonsens van iemand sal vat nie maar eintlik het ek vandag besef dat dit nie nodig is nie.  Ek hoef mos nou nie ELKE dag daai maskertjie aan te sit nie.
Ek hou daarvan om ‘secretive’ te wees of soos ek dit noem ‘selektief deel’, want mens moet daai klein deeltjie van jouself beskerm teen enige aanslae.  En ek het so ‘n deeltjie waar ek niemand, nie man, kind, muis of aanlynbekende sal toelaat nie.
Stil, ja ek is stil.  Meer soos ‘n landmyn.  Ek is net daar, rustig, besig met my eie ding tot iemand op my trap.  Dit is wanneer die vonke spat.  As iemand op my of myne begin trap.  Dit maak my baie kwaad en dan haal ek daai kreefknyper uit en gebruik hom mildelik. 
Eerlik, dis baiekeer moeilik vir my.  Veral as my eerlikheid iemand se gevoelens gaan seermaak.  Ek dink altyd hier in my kop dat ek vir sus en so, die en dat sal vertel, want ek is nou sooooo gatvol vir hulle optrede.  Maar ‘when push comes to shove’ probeer ek gewoonlik my woorde baie mooi kies en dan vertel ek die waarheid so half skeef … maar die boodskap kom oor.  Ek hou nie van lieg nie, ek hou ook nie daarvan as iemand vir my lieg nie.  Sien die “concerned about people’s feelings’ en die ‘tactful’ is hier te sien.
Vriendelik …. Need I say more 🙂
Temperamental and unpredictable, ja, voorspelbaar en Maryke gaan saam soos Marmite en appelkonfyt.  Dit “gel” nie lekker nie.  
Moody and easily hurt … Need I say more 🙁
Al die ander is waar behalwe die ‘not revengeful’.  Daar sit hulle die hele pot met sy deksel mis.  Ek vind dit makliker om te vergewe na ek ge’revenge’ het.  Dit maak tog meer sin en die ou wat sê ‘revenge is bitter’ het nog nooit die suikerstroopsoet lekkerte van lekkerky na ‘revenge’ gesmaak nie.
Homely … ek is ‘homely’ en ek lyk ook nogal ‘homely’.
Ek dink ek is in Julie gebore … dit pas by my … ek is eintlik maar flippen sag … maar as jy vir iemand vertel … onthou die knyper.
(As jy nou nie verstaan waaroor ek hier brabbel nie, lees my vorige pos, dit sal meer lig werp op die onderwerp.)

Wat sê jou verjaarsdagmaand van jou …

What kinda dawg are you?

Februarie 24, 2010 in Sonder kategorie

Ek het spesiaal ‘n dawg kwiz gaan doen …

Wow, You’re a Poodle!

Poodle

The Star

Intelligence, style and good looks in one able-bodied, well-manicured package? But of course! You are a Poodle, and proud of it. You scoff in the general direction of passers-by who cast admiring (or is it amused?) glances your way, knowing doggone well that if your private jet were not waiting to whisk you off for a spa weekend getaway, you would handily paddle their hindquarters in a game of Trivial Pursuit. Blindfolded. You are well-educated and enjoy the finer things in life, but are not above taking an impromptu skinny dip in an old limestone quarry. It would, however, be soooo much more convenient if said quarry came with a towel boy and swim-up cocktail service, of course.

What dog breed are you? I'm a Poodle! Find out at Dogster.com

Dis asof ek vandag te veel terugdink …

Februarie 23, 2010 in Sonder kategorie

Lank, lank gelede toe ek nog kind in Ma en Pa se huis was, had ons ‘n tuiningenieur – Dawid – hy het so ‘n lui oog gehad en sy vroutjie – Dina – het binne die huis gewerk.

Ons was nie bang nie.  Ons het lekker gespeel met hulle kinders Mada, Agnes en Liquorice.  Ons het skool-skool, huis-huis en winkel-winkel gespeel tot die son watertrek in die aande.  Wanneer my ouers funksies moes bywoon het Dina sommer daar by ons geslaap. 

Op daardie plot het ons baie lekkertes ontdek.  Dina het sulke lekker soetkoekies (eintlik soetkoeke) gemaak en baie middae het ons moeg by haar huisie aangeplof gekom en dan het ons water uit die kraan gedrink en daardie koeke verorber saam met ons maaitjies.

Ons het ook saam met haar beesmis oor die vloere gevryf, alte lekker en wanneer dit Krismis word het ons opgewone met persentjies gewag dat hulle kom ‘happy! happy!’ by die deur.

Vandag is dit so anders.  Hier is vandag ‘n tuiningenieur in my tuin om die gras te sny en die beddings skoon te maak.  En ek?  Ek is binne die huis toegesluit want ek is alleen.  Ek gee die kos, yswater en koffie so deur die diefwering aan en beduie wat ek gedoen wil hê en ek weet wat hy dink.  Hy dink:  “Die vrou maak nie oop nie, want sy is bang.” 

Dis so anders vandag …

Maar op ‘n ligter noot, het julle Rian van Heerden se status opdatering gesien op Facebook vandag.  Ek het gelê soos ek lag.

En ek voel baie goed vandag daarom gaan ek sommer ‘n

aanneem daar by Facebook.

Sommer net woorde

Februarie 21, 2010 in Sonder kategorie

Jou woorde

      val, val, val

soos sneeuvlokkies

      net nie so mooi nie …

Hulle vee oor

      my hart se kamers

soos ligte pers watte

      net nie so sag nie …

Kan ek jou woorde keer

      as ek net

stilbly en anderpad kyk?

Kan ek hul spore uitvee

      as ek net

die ander wang draai?

Seker kan ek baie dinge verander

      as ek net …

              sou ek net  …

Seker kan ek

        as ek wil.

Ek haat dit as …

Februarie 19, 2010 in Sonder kategorie

mense flippen aspris is.

Die saak staan so.

My ou Lifiki – bless his sunny heart – is so konserwatief hy kon net sowel uit die Voortrekkertyd in my lewe ingestap het, ek sou nie die verskil agterkom nie.

My oudste seun – is in ‘n Metal band!  Dus lyk hy soos ‘n Metal Band lid.  Lang hare, oor en lip goed die werke.  Ek het hom nou al lankal so aanvaar al was dit ook maar moeilik in die begin.

Maar dan sal hierdie Lifi van my nou so hande gevou sit en vra of die ding in die lip hom dan nie seer maak nie.

Al wat ek kan sê is …. F ….. k

Wens partykeer hy wil net groot word en sommer al die ou  eng en konserwatiewe mense wat altyd een of ander stekie moet inkry oor ander se voorkoms.  Asof ‘n flippen rugby broek en moses sandale die nuutste mode is en deur almal slaafs nagevolg word.

Okay, nou het ek my sê gesê … dis naweek.

Prelude to June

Februarie 18, 2010 in Sonder kategorie

Dit is die band, waarin my oudste seun, die lead guitarist is en hulle CD word 27 Februarie gelaunch.  Toe besluit ek, ek moet bietjie die musiek van hulle luister.  Natuurlik mag ek dit nie hê nie 🙂  maar dit klink stunning, stunning, stunning.

Anders as ander bands wat net ‘n klomp dromme is en ‘n malle geskree, is hulle musiek mooi.  Daar’s dromme, bietjie brullende geluide, maar mens kan elke woord wat hulle sing duidelik hoor.  En vir ‘n 42 jarige is dit nou goeie nuus.  Ek het ‘n kleintjie dood aan musiek wat ek nie die woorde kan hoor nie.

Ek het twee van my vriendinne saamgenooi om te gaan na die launch – so die ouetehuis sal ook verteenwoordig wees.  Hoop hulle sal ook beindruk wees.

Nou wonder ek oor die outfit wat ek moet aanskaf vir die grootse geleentheid!

Julle kan hier na hulle eeste recorded song luister.

Ag julle weet … boor skaam-skaam die groot toon in die grond soos Levinia, of is die Levina?

Ek skitter mos baie keer met ‘n ligte blonde oomblikke.

Nou wil ek weet of is die blog Svetlana of iets nou rêrig, êrig, njannies, kopêllas of is dit net ‘n grappie om mense soos ek te konfuus?
