It's all happening!
2 March 2010 marks 100 days until the World Cup Starts in SA….the excitement is building and we're seeing our national flag colours a lot more than usual.
In the spirit of all things Saffa and cool digital agency Quirk have created a URL shortener for South African Tourism.
The url shortener is called mzan.si (if you've been under a rock, you should know now that Mzansi means South Africa.)
A URL shortener means that you can shorten, share and track links easily and use these shortened links to share content through your preferred social networks. The custom created mzan.si url also obviously shares the SA love and adds some cool and cute local flavour.
We used mzan.si in our tweet about mzan.si - smart ne?.... Check out the new local url shortening service from SA Tourism called mzan.si >> cool! http://mzan.si/TIPQ
Check out mzan.si to see how it works….easy, peasy and local + lekka!
LOS ANGELES - The star-studded romance "Valentine's Day" enjoyed a $52.4 million opening weekend, easily grabbing the No. 1 spot at the box office, according to studio estimates released Sunday.
"To have a movie titled 'Valentine's Day' on Valentine's weekend was a no-brainer that absolutely worked," said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com.
Directed by Garry Marshall ("Pretty Woman"), "Valentine's Day" was a celebrity bonanza. The cast includes Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts, Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah, Jessica Biel, Shirley MacLaine, Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner.
I've heard very mixed reviews so far....Have you seen the movie? What did you think?
ALICE IN WONDERLAND - SOUNDTRACK
One of the most anticipated movies to be released in 2010 is Tim Burton's adaptation of the classic "Alice in Wonderland". The surreal fantasy-adventure film is based on the classic Lewis Carroll novels and will star Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Mia Wasikowska and Anne Hathaway.
Like that other big film of 2009, Burton's Alice will combine live action and animation. I saw the trailer for the 3D version and it looks like it's going to be amazing, full of typical Burton craziness and styling.
SOUNDTRACK: Franz Ferdinand, Metro Station, Avril Lavigne, Owl City, Pete Wentz and Mark Hoppus, among others, have developed songs for the psychedelic Alice remake. The star-studded soundtrack drops March 2 -- but you can preview most of the songs right now online!
