How the smallest things can have the biggest impact…

By August 20, 2014 Music, Orsi recommends


Exactly 10 years ago I got these four CDs for my 18th birthday from my mum.

Even though I didn’t realise it at the time, they had such a profound impact on me that without them I probably wouldn’t be where I am today.

I know that that is a very bold statement to make – but I am convinced that without the influence of those four people in my teens and what they represented (at least to me) coupled with the music they selected on those four comps I would not be working at Jazzman Records today.

Anyway, due to a lot of requests I made a playlist with the songs from all the comps that were available on Spotify – sadly a lot of Soul tracks were left out but overall I reckon it’s still a pretty solid selection!

The second episode of FEVER is now available to listen back to!

Two hours of lots of great music (if I may say so myself) ;)

Album of the month is Matthew Halsall & The Gondwana Orchestra – When The World Was One 

Hope you like it my friends, even if it does sound like my nose is up in my brain due to my silly cold!

Cock Cupcakes by @CakebyCandie

By August 7, 2014 Food, Life

I never thought seeing somebody making cock cupcakes would ever make me cry – but I guess life is full of surprises!

You see, the person who is making them in the video below is one of the most amazing women that I have ever had the pleasure to get to know.

That’s right! Candice is incredible with a capital I – a fantastic cake maker,  mother,  sister, friend, lover, business woman, runner  - you name!

I’ve never seen her do anything that makes her look like she is so much in her own element like in this video. Her charisma, talent and wit is totally captivating and it has completely floored me! I’m so happy for her and proud that she has achieved this.

Anyway, enough emotions and more cake – if you have 5 minutes and want to know how to make the most delicious cupcakes (I guess the cock on top is optional – haha) then have a look at the video below.

And if you want to order cupcakes or cakes for any occasion – make sure you check out Cake by Candie!
