VERY nicely surprised by my test drive of the brand new #OpelAdam. #Jam

I got a message recently asking if I would be interested in taking the new #OpelAdam for a test drive… now I’m not a car guru but I know what I like…. and I was NOT expecting to be THIS impressed.

opel adam

This is the picture I saw when I googled ‘Opel Adam’. Obviously I was super keen to see if the drive matched the look.
WOW!!! Powerful. Quick. Smooth. Silent.

I was CONVINCED the #OpelAdam I was driving was a 1.6, 1.4 at LEAST… I was shocked to know it was a one litre turbo. So that means… it’s ridiculously low on fuel too. And from a ‘looks’ perspective, the rounded corners are soft and beautiful and the lines are sleek and sexy, making it a car that, in my opinion, is well suited to men and women. My boyfriend also had a lot of fun driving it.

The sound system was fun, loud, clear and the touch screen interface was a lot of fun to play with. It’s got all the bells and whistles without being filled with so many extras that it takes you a year to learn your car. Within the 4 days we were very comfortable in this gorgeous thing.

Not yet released in SA, I was told by the guys at Reeds CT that the Adam will be starting at about R190,000.
There are 3 different models:
the Adam which is a 1.4
the Adam Jam which is a 1.0 turbo (the one I drove)
and the Adam Glam which is also a 1.0 turbo .
They all come with the standard Opel intelli-link system. The system connects with your smartphone and all the info on your phone then runs via this system on a 7 inch screen.
The Jam and the Glam come standard with auto park assist (which is AWESOME)
with colour options: the Glam you can order with the twisted colour option, which means…. the darker colour vehicle will then come with a white roof.
AND…. for my peeps…
On the Glam there are LED lights in the roof with SEVEN DIFFERENT COLOUR SETTINGS!!! I’m finished.
these are just some of the features of the brand new Opel Adam

White guys gets knocked the f*ck out after calling black man a k*ffir. #CapeQuarter #CapeTown

Copy of ca p2-1White guy gets a knock-out kick for calling a Black guy a Kaffir.mp4_000001666.JPG.JPG YOUTUBE This screengrab shows two men fighting at the Cape Quarter Shopping Centre in Green Point. Screengrab: YouTube

Cape Town – A YouTube video showing two men fight after a racial slur at the Cape Quarter Shopping Centre in Green Point has gone viral on social media.

In the video, two white men are standing at an ATM withdrawing cash.

They are then asked by a black man behind them in the queue to “hurry up”.

One of the men at the ATM responds by calling the man in the line the k-word.

The two start shouting at each other and a security guard attempts to intervene, but is left powerless when the fight gets physical.

At the end of the video the white man is on the floor after he was punched and kicked in the face by the black man. Police said no charges have been laid.

Centre management could not be reached for comment on Sunday.

Cape Argus

- The above article I just saw online. Now I’m not an advocate of fighting… EVER, but in THIS day and age… for real. I love how people who literally ask for it… are shocked when the ‘get’ it. Day drunk and racist will lead to a punch in the face. ALWAYS. Well his drunk face is all over the interwebs now…. well done on making a damn fool of yourself bru. And in my hood. No man :(
Also, love this post from a witness of the incident. drunk

It’s my YouTube clip of the week and this week is a jazzy cover of a song that hit no2 on the Heart Top 30 with Paul Playdon. This video was loaded only a month ago and already has over 2 million views.

All About That [Upright] Bass – Jazz Meghan Trainor Cover ft. Kate Davis – Postmodern Jukebox

I’d love to know what you think of this cover? Do you think it doesn’t compare to the original or is it muuuch better ?

 

PLEASE tell me what you think of this music video? #animals #Maroon5 #Ihateit

“Animals”

Maybe you think that you can hide
I can smell your scent from miles
Just like animals
Animals

Baby, I’m

So what you trying to do to me
It’s like we can’t stop we’re enemies
But we get along when I’m inside you
You’re like a drug that’s killing me
I cut you out entirely
But I get so high when I’m inside you

Yeah you can start over you can run free
You can find other fish in the sea
You can pretend it’s meant to be
But you can’t stay away from me
I can still hear you making that sound
Taking me down rolling on the ground
You can pretend that it was me
But no

Baby, I’m preying on you tonight
Hunt you down eat you alive

So if I run it’s not enough
You’re still in my head forever stuck
So you can do what you wanna do
I love your lies I’ll eat ‘em up
But don’t deny the animal
That comes alive when I’m inside you

Yeah you can start over you can run free
You can find other fish in the sea
You can pretend it’s meant to be
But you can’t stay away from me
I can still hear you making that sound
Taking me down rolling on the ground
You can pretend that it was me
But no

Baby, I’m preying on you tonight
Hunt you down eat you alive
Just like animals
Animals
Like animals

Maybe you think that you can hide
I can smell your scent from miles

My YouTube Clip of the week: GREAT MJ medley, all vocals by ONE man.

I first watched THIS YouTube clip years ago. But I had to share it. With just under 33 million views, I’m not surprised if you have also already seen this.
I am a huge fan of Michael Jackson’s early work and I really loved how this medley was put together, I was also blown away by how all the harmonies were done by just one person. Sam Tsui.

Samuel “Sam” Tsui (born May 2, 1989[2]) is an American musician and internet celebrity who rose to fame on YouTube. He is best known for covering songs by popular artists like Adele, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars, as well as for his original songs, medleys, and mashups, along with his frequent collaborations with Kurt Hugo Schneider. As of September 2014, he had 1.5 million subscribers.” – for full Wikipedia article click here.

I would love to know what YOU think of this. And, if you have a YouTube clip that you think would be great for #MyYoutubeClipOfTheWeek please send it to me via email: keri@1049.fm

enjoy ♥

My Youtube Clip of the Week: Alex and Sierra cover Britney Spears TOXIC! #sultry

I am loving these audition videos and this one is one of my favourites. Now I’m not trying to love my deeply rooted love for Britney… but I really think this version of her song TOXIC by this couple is just too good. Take a listen, have a watch…. and tell me what you think? It’s really great seeing a performer not trying to be all sexual… and it comes across so beautifully sultry. With just under 22 million views it seems this couple has us all ‘in love with their love’.

got a great YouTube vid you’d like to share? email them to me on keri@1049.fm

#AdviceFromSomewhere. We could all take a little something from these.

Advice from Somewhere

goodforthesoul

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.
SIX.
Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
SEVEN.
Believe in love at first sight.

Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

In disagreements, fight fairly. Please No name calling.
ELEVEN.
Don’t judge people by their relatives.

TWENTY.
Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
TWENTY-ONE.
Spend some time alone.

This came around anonamously, identified as from a “Chinese Tantra Totem” – One definition of a tantra being a statement of principle or religious practice and collections of such principles and practices. It’s origins are probably from south Asia such as India and may have followed Hinduism and Buddhism and other related belief and practice systems into East Asia including China. One person who viewed this page responded that they are from the Dalai Lama, but didn’t not say which one – which generation.

May be. I haven’t verified any origins for these sayings. I don’t think most of them are unique to China or Asia. Certainly some have existed in western culture for a long time as well. (They are even older than me) Some are probably ancient. Some, such as the ‘smile when answering the phone’ are at least modern variations if not actually recent. But they sound good. If you live this way life will seem happy. – from the web author. – http://www.msu.edu/~jerrymc/humor/advice.html

My YouTube Clip of the week – Blackstreet No Diggity VINTAGE ‘jessica rabbit’ style cover. ♥

No Diggity – Vintage Jessica Rabbit- Style Blackstreet Cover ft. Ariana Savalas

Hello again :)

Every Saturday just a little after 2pm I post my ‘YouTube Clip of the week’, and today’s is a goodie. Blackstreet released their hit ‘No Diggity’ in 1996 and recently it was being sung and hummed all across the world after an acappella version was done on the movie “PITCH PERFECT’. I have never stopped loving this song and I seem to be a fan of most of the remakes and remixes. This one, done by Ariana Savalas in a vintage style (and with over 1,3million views) is a little different, and I would LOVE to know what YOU think of it.

If you know of any great covers or amazing remixes/remakes please email them to me on keri@1049.fm

Enjoy xxx ♥
