Back on air, back online and back finding some SICK videos. This one I must say thank you to #CrawlProject for sitting me down to watch this. I love Ed Sheeran’s music anyway, so it didn’t take much to sit me down to watch one of his videos. But wow, I was NOT expecting THIS. It is genius.
The dancer’s name is Phillip Chbeeb… follow him on twitter here
Don’t (Ed Sheeran song)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Don’t” is a song recorded by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran for his second studio album, x (2014). It was initially planned as the album’s lead single, but was passed over in favour of “Sing“. It was instead released to iTunes on 13 June 2014 as the second “instant grat” promotional single from x. “Don’t” officially impacted US contemporary hit radio on 15 July 2014 and was released independently on 24 August 2014 as the album’s second single.
“Don’t” peaked at number 8 on the UK Singles Chart. In the US, it became Sheeran’s first top 10 single. It also made the top 10 in eight other countries. It has sold 1,464,000 copies in the US as of January 2015.
An accompanying music video was released on YouTube on 4 August 2014. The video was directed by Emil Nava and follows a dancer (Philip Chbeeb from I.aM.mE) going from poverty to wealth. Sheeran makes a brief drive-by cameo appearance. 4Music called it a “compelling watch”.
With a video THIS great… it’s easy to see why, at the time of writing this, it had over 43,300,000 views.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
I just found this online, and had to share. It made me feel kiff. Hopefully it’ll do the same for you 🙂

Oh my word this is one of the funniest takes on a bedtime story I have heard in effing ages! From a book by James Finn Garner, entitled: POLITICALLY CORRECT: The Ultimate Story Book. This was made for my hipster friends far and wide. I think I’m going to play this through one of those pre election cars with a speaker attached, and drive through Cape Town, esp Woodstock then Kloof and Long St. Haha.
If you don’t believe me, and would rather save your data then take a chance on whether it is worth downloading a 3min story… Here is an excerpt.. 👍
“Once there were three, vertically challenged, pigs, who lived together in mutual respect and in harmony with their environment. Using materials that were indigenous to the area, they each built a beautiful house.”
Is that not the best version of this story EVER?! 😄
If you, like me, are a disaster in the kitchen… you are going to LOVE this.
While my better prepped friends are slaving away confidently behind a very expensive gas stove, I’m still googling Youtube videos on: ‘how to boil an egg’.
I happened across this image earlier and I love it. This kitchen cheat sheet makes me want to try stuff in the kitchen again… avec 2 bottles of red wine ofcourse. For some of you, this sheet may be filled with useless ‘sheet’. But for me… it’s a gift from the kitchen Goddess.
I just saw this video and am truly inspired. It has the ability to literally change your perspective and ultimately your life.
Why do we spend so much time, putting so much effort into things we enjoy so little? Just so at the end of the day we have a tiny amount of money left over to do the things we REALLY love? Below are some of the lines that stand out for me.
“What do you desire?
What makes you itch?
What sort of a situation would you like?”
“What would you like to do if money were no object?
How would you REALLY enjoy spending your life?”
“If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to to go on living that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing. Which is stupid!”
“Better to have a short life that is filled with what you like doing, than a long life spend in a miserable way.”
“Therefore, it’s so important to consider this question, ‘What do I desire?'”
