Casper de Vries has been making South Africans laugh for decades. In case you haven’t watched the “It’s a f*cking parrot” sketch, you’re welcome.

The same can be said for the world’s highest-paid TV actors, musicians, and TV hosts. Forbes has released their list of the world’s […]
It’s been a good year for cinema. Marvel made its mark on cinematic history with Black Panther, and Lady Gaga proved that you really can act and sing (Madonna and Britney had us convinced that it wasn’t possible).

Some people just do life right. Like this couple from Australia. Four years ago, Riley Whitelum and Elayna Carausu decided to leave their old lives behind and move on board Whitelum’s monohull ‘La Vagabonde’, on which they now sail around the world, vlogging their experiences.
