SHEBEEN QUEEN /// A STYLE JAM WITH UNATI SILINGA

Howzit skat, hoping you've a fabulous extra long weekend. I spent mine resting mostly on my back watching series DVDs and doing a kakload of nothing, an exercise in sobriety, in fact i've even drawn up a whole new list of things to give up, old diets to revisit. I managed to drag my ass off the couch long enough to spend Sunday night and early Monday morning at my friend Unati's Shebeen Chill Sessions, not an exercise in sobriety. She hosts them once a month at her house in Woodstock, there's a cash bar, curry, deejays and occasionally a musical performance. I'm all about access skattie so if you want to want to get on her mailing list so she can update you about the next one you can pop her an email at her address oo.nutty@gmail.com. However, this blog is not called Skattie what are you eating/drinking?, so besides alcoholic cravings i had other ulterior motives for dragging myself off the couch. I've always been a big fan of her style or her swagg as the youngens are calling it these days, you might recall a style jam i did with her a while back, if not you can check it out here. As busy as she was on Sunday evening, she let me twist her arm a bit into doing a couple of costume changes. Enjoy.

A LITTLE BIT OF SELF-PROMOTION /// ELLE SHOOT FEATURING SKATTIE


Ola skat, do check out the May issue of Elle Magazine, i was recently part of a shoot featured in this issue. It was shot by the talented Elle new talent winner Freddie Child-Villiers, styled by Cameron Arendse and another Elle new talent winner Cleo Droomer. It was a fun shoot and everyone was so nice and chilled (no really skat, i'm not just saying that to kiss ass). The shoot features four other bloggers including Aisha Baker whose blog Baked is one my favourites and she is such a sweetheart. In the same issue they also feature a debate on the fur issue for which they asked me to type a few words, so if you are not tired of reading the shit that runs through my head do check that out. Okay enough with the self -promotion. Just a quick and heartfelt thanks to the people at Elle for their support of this blog. I had to leave early but it was a fantastic afternoon at the shoot....well, except for the awkward call i got from Cleo afterwards asking if i hadn't 'accidentally' left with another blogger's personal clothes, mhmmm.

AT WORD OF ART AND AVA

TO ED YOUNG WITH LOVE


Why oh why you may ask am i dedicating this post our sexy dark horse Ms Edwina not so Young. You might not know him, however some of you kaapse art tarts do know him. Anyway, reason: Tonight at the What If The World Gallery opening Eddie went on and on about how much he hates the skattie watermark that i put on to my pics, it is apparently very ugly and it ruins the pics, and he says it also reeks of self-promotion, duh Ed! Any of y'all who are familiar with his work must surely know how much he hates self-promo, in fact i think he hates art altogether, why else would he make so little? Anyway tonight i have not watermarked my pics just for him. i LOVE you Ed.
The pics here are from tonight's exhibition at the WITW gallery(Wednesday), and what a relief skattie that i managed to get this many pics, i spent Monday at the AVA gallery and i must say that the AVA is one of the few galleries that i go to strictly for the art. Not so much because the art is so extraordinary but mainly because the fashion is so ordinary. Don't get me wrong skat, i loved the art on Monday especially Cinga Samson's work but fuck i might as well take pictures of my boring old self, no style for shit. Well at least they've got the good sense not to charge for cheap wine like our friends at the Michael Stevenson and the Blank project gallery. I guess seeing as most of us are not quite ready to buy art they might as well charge for something. But i tell you if i ever get my act together long enough to actually start investing in some art they better throw in a free drink, and i want the good shit. I spent most of Monday chatting to Athi Mongezeleli Joja (for those of you who subscribe to the 'their names all sound the same' school of non-thought, he is not to be confused with my partner Athi-Patra Ruga) about the wonders of crocs, i would have taken a pic for you skat but my camera is uninsured and i feared that my lens would break from the shame. When i saw him in the latest version of the croc with the gingham check stitched on top i feared fashion had died and i hadn't been invited to the funeral. Enough about Monday and Mr Joja's hateful fashion choices, seriously i've only got only one pic from that unfortunate evening. This post is dedicated to my friend the prolific (lol) Ed Young. i LOVE you Ed.

THURSDAY /// MICHAEL STEVENSON GALLERY /// BLANK PROJECTS GALLERY

ZOLITHA AT A CAT SHOW /// THE DREADED CAT POST

Skattie i warned you a while ago that the day would come when inspiration would run dry, my true colours would show and i will right a cat post. Well that day is here skat, and if furry pussy is not your thing maybe you should stop reading here or deal. To make matters trickier for this blogger my sometimes skeptic partner says all that shit i write about drinking and weight issues is getting rather old and must probably die, shit, what the fuck to fall back on? Now skattie i know you don't come here to read about cats, there's a whole different class of blog for that. However and so sorry for you skat i am a cat person, yes the occasionaly annoying freaky kind that terrorizes friends on facebook with cat pictures, cat related status updates and occasionally i contemplate giving them those corny facebook profiles and yes i don't have DSTV. Today i entered our two russian kittens into a championship cat competition which is organized by 'The Big Cat Club' and they scooped up five awards, so i'm five times the cat person i usually am. It's taking everything in me not to sommer just post cat pictures with this post, but who knows times might get more desperate still.
