fortnightly thought

WHAT an issue we have for you! From celeb surgery disasters (pages 16 and 17) to the word on everyone’s lips at the moment: coronavirus. At the time of going to print the virus has killed more than 200 people, while more than 9 000 cases of infection have been confirmed; no cases had been reported in SA, so far... Our health minister Zweli Mkhize has said that measures are in place to monitor the situation, and Tembisa hospital is one of the institutes designated to manage the virus. What’s a bit concerning, though, is that I’ve often heard it said that if you get admitted to Tembisa hospital, it’s likely you won’t be going home... That in itself is a scary thought! But while the coronavirus does have the ability…

kobe bryant 1978 – 2020

“IF you’re afraid to fail, then you’re probably going to fail.” AN emotional Jack Nicholson gave a rare interview to pay tribute to his late friend Kobe Bryant. The Oscar-winning actor is a longtime fan of Bryant’s team, the Los Angeles Lakers, and can often be found sitting courtside at Lakers games. Nicholson avoids the limelight and rarely gives interviews, but he opted to give one to CBSLA to speak about his friend, who died alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna in a helicopter crash. “My reaction is the same as almost all of LA.,” he said. “Where we think everything’s solid, there’s a big hole in the wall. I was used to seeing and talking to Kobe that... it kills you. It’s just a terrible event.” The 82-year-old screen star went on…

1 DEMI LOVATO wants to settle down and have children in the next 10 years. The 27-year-old singer, who has launched a musical comeback following her near-fatal overdose in 2018, revealed her plans for the future, and her hopes of starting a family. In a candid new radio interview with Apple Music’s Beats 1 host Zane Lowe, Lovato said it would be wonderful to share her success with kids of her own. “I think at some point in this decade I want to start a family. That would be dope,” she explained. “All of this [success] is great and it’s beautiful and I’m lucky and I’m blessed and I’m grateful, but I’ve learned that clearly if all of this made you happy, I wouldn’t have ended up where I did.”…

a goodyear for statues

ARTIST Gabor Barath, from the town of Mohacs in the southern Hungarian county of Baranya, was reportedly honoured with the title ‘Young Master of Folk Art’ last year and he specialises in traditional Buso masks for the Busojaras festival every February. According to legend, when the Ottomans occupied Hungary in the 16th century, the townsfolk escaped to nearby marshlands where they met an old man who told them to carve masks and prepare for battle. When the masked, sheepskin-clad villagers appeared in the middle of a winter storm, the Ottoman soldiers thought they were facing demons and fled before sunrise. As a result, Busojaras has come to symbolise a way of scaring off winter itself. As well as traditional Buso masks, Barath makes stunning statues from old tyres that include elephants,…

skullful art at its best

AN ambitious artist decided to craft a skull from an unlikely material – 600 colourful pencils. Working out of a small studio in Suffolk, Scott Knight, 43, has come a long way from from failing art in high school. With a passion for carving ever since he was a small child, Scott finally plucked up the courage to follow his dreams to quit farming and become an artist – after 10 years of mastering the craft of creating skulls from any material he could get his hands on. Scott’s obsession with skulls has been life-long and now consumes his entire artistic outlet. “I have collected skulls all my life and have always been fascinated by the notion that the skull is the box that holds the soul of the body,”…
