With Disney’s annual content showcase coming up soon, I thought it would be a great time to share some photos of my recent purchase of Disney LEGO Minifigures. I bought these on Takealot a few months back and LOVE them.

I had seen these cute little figures in a few unboxing videos on YouTube and was surprised to see them available in South Africa. Fun fact, I collect figures. I wouldn’t say I’m an avid collector but I do have a small box of Funkos and such. It’s a fun little hobby – expensive too at times may I add. I’ve lately been sharing photos online of this other side of my geek/otaku persona. Luckily, it’s something that quite a few people are pretty outspoken about.

Anywho, I had purchased four blind bags and had wanted to get Ursula, Stitch, Minnie Mouse, Peter Pan and Alice. In all honesty, I don’t mind having all of them. I got Ursula as I had hoped. Then Genie was next up and doubles of Daisy (need to swop it with someone).

Here are the photos, where you can see the simplicity and cuteness, I truly adore them. I can’t wait to get more!

Review and Interview: Locnville – Taste The Weekend

August 1, 2016
Locnville Cover Final

We all remember the fresh-faced twin brother musical duo, Locnville from 2009/10? They gave us the hit Sun in My Pocket. Well, they’ve grown up and after much success with a number of albums including a greatest hits album, they’ve offered Taste The Weekend and I love it!

Taste The Weekend is their debut album since joining Warner Music. Andrew and Brian have been known to try out different musical genres – take for example the LCNVL era. They’ve experimented with many new things during the years and it’s clear that they’ve adapted their discoveries to their new album.

The album includes the hits Cold Shoulder and Grapevine, but have a number of other songs that will soon become favourites too. I quite enjoyed Better, Santa Monica Drive, Just Like Me, Golden Trinkets and title track Taste The Weekend.

Lyrics-wise, the album does surprise at first. From¬†parties to cheating and everything else in-between, the boys have moved away from how most remember them. But then again, they’re in their twenties now, I guess we all need to move on and realise that. What I really loved about the album was how polished and true to their original sounds this was yet still offering something different.

You may need to take a second or third listen to truly appreciate Taste the Weekend but it will be worth it. I’m really excited to see what else comes from these guys because there’s no denying Andrew and Brian are talented when it comes to the production and overall experience offered with each of their songs. Now we just need a tour.

I was lucky enough to sit down with Andrew and Brian a few weeks back to talk abut this album and much more, make sure to check it out below!
