Yes, we got an Xclusive Interview with Carmen Xclusive about Her Xciting Career & The Releases of Her Xquisite Christmas Album.
Nowadays well produced Christmas albums by South African artists are by all accounts a rarity and very few among those have that something special that would set them apart from the average offering. Somehow locally produced Christmas albums never seem to make it as alternatives to the ubiquitous age-old Boney-M album or the much loved Mariah Carey Christmas album played everywhere every year.
However... Carmen Xclusive has never been your average singer and this is not an average album.

The impressive line-up takes on the air of a homecoming celebration as seemingly half of the artists on the roster are from Cape Town but they are either based in other cities or they are constantly on tour.

We Need Your Ingredients for our Stone Soup

One of our favourite stories here at Colored Girls Rock that have resonated with many of us since childhood is the story of Stone Soup.


A traveller reached a village where the people were not very friendly to strangers or even to each other.
He proceeded to make a fire, took out a large pot, filled it with water and added stones to it, all the while whistling a happy tune.

When the news first broke that the long-running soap opera Days of Our Lives will be culled from SABC TV due to the implementation of the 80-90 percent local content quota for SABC TV channels, we were quite pleasantly surprised by some of the funny reactions from some Facebook users.

OK we came up with a fairly mild one for the title of this article but check out further below what some facebook users who are just a little bit wittier than us had to say. We won't be giving there names as some of them are our personal friends with Ridiculously High Social Media Privacy Settings... They've got issues yeah...  and we don't want to get into a fight with them over that.
No we aren't making this up either; These one-liners are really out there...
