If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands.

If you watch Idols on channel 38 (DSTV) Raise your hand.

{Post a comment to tell me if you raised your hand}

Well, so do I, but that's not what I'm writing about. I want to talk about the lack of good Afrikaans music.

With artist such as: Andries!(yes, the exclamation mark included);SonJsha; Henro en die brasse-biltong-brannas-sokkie band(I know, Im ashamed to be in the same species) and Karliandriana Jouberwesthuizen en die maas-kaas orkes I'm beginning to wonder if I really should move down under(to Australia, Dumbnut!) just to get away from Durt Karren. But don't buy your plane tickets yet, there is an upside! Young Afrikaans bands (e.g, Glaskas; Grassnyer;YSTERKOEI; Fopspeen) are here to save the day! Following in the footsteps of legends like Klopjag;Fokofpolisiekar; Jan Blohm; Piet Botha; Zinkplaat and Foto Na Dans, they will save you from the filth that some "people" call Afrikaans music.

If all goes well, we will hopefully never bear the horrific, unthinkable and unspeakable terror of:"Vyftig goue Afrikaanse sokkie Country treffers, volume drie"

Don't forget to watch channel 38. All Idols, all the time!
