Do not expect the show I describe to be the same as the one that you see when you go to the delightful Kalk Bay Theatre to see the Godfrey Johnson Showcase. This extraordinary performing artist will present a different selection of songs from his repertoire for each of the four nights that the show runs. Yes, it's sad that it is a short run, but it remains a show that sparkles with humour as Johnson brings his unique touch of genius to songs that you thought you knew.

The box office in South Africa (and worldwide) is a war zone in which two unseen forces are at constant war: those who go to the movies, and those who make movies. It's tough being a film that is released on circuit and thrown to the wolves; like a lamb led to slaughter or Daniel in the Lion's Den, nothing can save a movie from its fateful demise or victory, not even prestigious awards or lofty reviews.

The older I get the more I think that this Valentine's Day thing is just a commercial trick to get us all to spend money on things we would normally just walk past. Yet, on the other hand, I remember Valentine's Day at varsity and the whole of Stellenbosch just being one big mass of flowers and giggling students.
