Oh look! We got some jobs!

We’ve been quiet. We know. We’re sorry. We have a good excuse, though. You see, by some incredible stroke of luck, we have ended up employable. That’s right folks, we got some jobs! Hooray!
We’re still mildly confused by what has happened to us, but we’re sure we’ll get over it. However, this new state of affairs does mean we have to be a bit responsible from now on if we wish to keep our new jobs, so we may have to slow down on the posting thing for a moment. And we do wish to keep our jobs. We really do. 

How else will we pay for those delicious and rather expensive ice lollies we like so much?
Check out our celebratory pre-spending of our still-to-be-paid salaries below.

2010: So last year

Well, we had a ball launching the Secret City Project last year. We met some incredibly odd people, we did some extremely cool things, and we learned a truckload about the city we live in.  So, in an effort to be extremely sentimental, we’ve put together a highlights reel. You know, for prosperity’s sake. If you feel the need, please feel free to download this video and create a PowerPoint presentation from selected stills which you can play at the next wedding, 21st or silver anniversary you attend.
We’d like that.

Joburg Special - Part 5: Lize "The Unicorn" Kay

Lize is a mover-and-shaker within media circles. She has a résumé that will frighten the words right off most people’s humble CV’s. Lize is fuelled by Cosmos and cupcakes. And, while her unicorn alter ego isn’t fighting crime, Lize is working for 2oceansvibe radio, Jacaranda, SuperSport and writing a very successful blog. It seems that Lize is the Yellow Pages of what is hot and happening in both Jozi and CT. Definitely one to keep on speed dial when you need to know… anything. Check out her video below.

Joburg Special - Part 4: I Collect Gingers

We collected a ginger to chat about her project “I Collect Gingers”. Anthea Pokroy is a fascinating artist with a passion for gingers. She collects them in large numbers and photographs and interviews her ginger subjects. She chatted to us about everything ginger. Check out her video below.

Joburg Special - Part 1: Brandslut and Mike Sharman showing Chris around.

Having met the “Amazeness” of Mike Sharman in Cape Town we couldn’t miss this opportunity to hook up with him in his hometown, Jozi. Mike helped us “Make out with our steak out”. He was one of the awesome and worthy benefactors of the Mini Countryman launch and kindly let Chris jump in and smash out some Secret City Project interviews in his #MINIgetaway. Mike lined up some of the hottest local bloggers and we were whipped around town to see the best of Jozi.

As a Cape Town lover Chris couldn’t help but admit that Joburg is doing something very right. Check out Brandslut showing Chris and Mike some of the sweetest hidden spots. We were taken to the insanely cool 44 Stanley and educated on the ways of the Jozi town. There was a lot packed into a short time, as Joburgers do.

Check out the video below.

Caroline Vincent

Caroline is one of the bright new talents stepping out of Michaelis School of Fine Arts in Cape Town. We heard about her awesome new project and decided to swing by and check out what all the fuss was about. We hardly expected to be led under a staircase and into a mysterious closet and bathroom… Needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised; we found a fascinating collection of beautifully sculpted bathroom products meticulously carved out of Sunlight Soap and wax. Caroline spoke of her personal experiences and let us into the thinking behind her exceptional installation.

Check out her video below.
