Ian and I reveal the truth about The Parlotones!

|By Elana| Home, Music

 

 

What happens when the lead singer of one of SA’s top selling bands decides to go solo? A lot happens. Fans sit up and listen. The media becomes curious, looking for “the real” story. The music stores and sites rub their hands together with glee, an optimistic grin ahead of Christmas sales.

This weekend fans of platinum selling The Parlotones will hear frontman Kahn Morbee’s first official solo song on the radio. “Days Like This” is a beautifully crafted song. It’s more intimate and stripped down than what you would have heard from the Parlotones. Kahn is clear that his solo project does not signal the end of his band. Rather, it’s an opportunity to do something else, something fresh, something from the heart.

He’s been working on plenty of material and there is a lot to look forward to. He’s discreetly dropped another online a few weeks back called The Candle .

Listen out for the cool new tracks on a radio station near you!

What is your style story?

|By Elana| #ElanaShoes, Elana Style, Home

elanalores-1711We all have a style story. My first memory with clothes was when I asked my Mom what the correct pronunciation for “sandals” were, as I only knew the word in Afrikaans.  She practically dressed me. Until the day I got married.

I wore Moms gown, that we kept for nearly 43 years in a box in the top cupboard of our Bellville home.  There was a time that I shopped till I dropped, and now, being a little more wiser with shopping and even money, I choose what I buy and what I give away with #ElanaShoes.  I did this shoot for Woolworth’s ‘s Taste Magazine with my favourite designer KLUK CGDT.  Ifinal am showingthis off cause it’s pretty, and because I am curious…

What is your style story?  It doesn’t have to be about clothes. Perhaps it’s when you borrowed your big sisters clothes because you just didn’t have your own back then.  Some of us have been there.  x

Remember “Beyond 2000″? A robot that flies like a bird?! I filmed it…

|By Elana| Home

I host a few events a week as an MC.  Functions with really important people. I think the ones I enjoy the most are those that have an aspect of surprise. Events that include Science and Technology.

I opened the 19th Congress of the International Federation of Automatic Control. They have a congress every 3 years and the last one was in Milan.

But before the night opened. These engineers from Festo launched this into the audience. Think of your little brothers remote control car or helicopter, but think bigger than that 90’s show we watched “ Beyond 2000”?  think some higher-grade science voodoo!!

Look what I filmed for you from backstage:
