Eöl Swords.

 

   Swords, most cos-play people use them, most geeks love them, most “normals” fear them… and with good reason. A skilled smith can create the superior technology that will give you the cutting edge. BUT, what if you want a real sword, a display sword,  a sword of +100 fatality? Who do you talk to? Well, we here at 925|Rebellion know of only one place to go… Eöl Swords. And today, we were lucky enough to interview them. Why swords? As a teenager it was all swords, swords, swords, from Tolkien books to knights and Celts and crusaders. I asked (begged) my parents to let me have a forge in the outside storeroom – NO. So I studied Architecture then […]

 Today we have a second interview with G.L.O.W. “A second one?” you might ask. Yes, a second. For today we talk to G.L.O.W about their work on TV and film.

Subhasis Banerjee.

 

 Today we speak to Indian film-maker, Subhasis Banerjee. Subhasis produces small indie films and productions, though he has bigger plans on the horizon. When did you first know you wanted to become a film maker? Well I’ve liked to watch movies from childhood. I used to participate in dramas in our school and many other places. I guess that’s the time when I decided of becoming a film-maker. What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you? It’s hard to say what inspired me. But truly speaking, some films directed by renowned Bengali film directors Sattyajit Roy and Rittwik Ghatak inspired me a lot. Such films like Pather Panchali, Meghe Dhaka Tara have always been an inspiration to me. My […]

Great Geek Collective!

 

 Today we speak to Dina Steyn, one of the heads of the Great Geek Collective. Where did you get the name? Finding a name for the Great Geek Collective’s (GGC’s) con was tricky. We asked people to submit names and then had a vote. The funniest suggestion that didn’t make it was “PretCon”. G²C² is short for Great Geek Collective Convention. How long has it been running? G²C² is in its first year. Its forgoer, Upcon (University of Pretoria Convention) was in its late teens. We chose the theme “Phoenix Rising” to symbolise and celebrate the con’s rebirth as G²C². What’s the history of it? Upcon was traditionally hosted by Tuks Krygspel Vereniging (TKV), a Tuks student society. I first […]

AMY TELFORD: TEACHER, ACTRESS, FREE THINKING HUMAN.

 

 TOAST. The roar of the crowd; the smell of the paint; the subtle truth revealed by the change of backdrops, all these things make acting the dream job of many, many people. However not everyone acts for the money and fame. (Yes, there are people who don’t want to be Tom Cruise. Can you imagine that? Well, yes, I can.) There are those, small independent groups from around the world that perform, work on film, do extra work for series, and produce their own independent films and shows, without an inkling of fame and fortune. MAKING GODS BLEED. When did you first know you wanted to become an actor? What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you? I’m an […]

G.L.O.W.

 

 Today we speak to internationally known, locally made, Dark-Electro Band, G.L.O.W. What’s the origin of your band name? G.L.O.W. was derived from the Industrial/E.B.M. scene with influences of personal burdens, reminiscence, retaliation and one putting their foot down. What genre of music do you consider your work to be? Industrial/E.B.M. History of your G.L.O.W? G.L.O.W. started off with me as a solo artist from 2008 until present. I became recognized on MySpace and Soundcloud with songs such as Anger, Levitate, Plastic and Flying Dutchman (Final Quest?). After winning a tune signature competition in 2013(with an Arizona-based Gothic Radio station called Oontzcast), my music became more recognized worldwide. Tracks which were aired were Flying Dutchman (Final Quest?), Hai-Uri and My Smile […]

DarcTyde Events!

 

 Today we speak to Keith, the owner and driving force behind DarcTyde Events – a local Alternative-Underground nightclub extravaganza! Why did you decide to create DarcTyde Events? We started DarcTyde Events as a means to help promote the South African Goth Scene. We have many talented local Gothic and Darkwave artists, but so few venues are willing to give them a chance. We also simply wanted to throw some of the most awesome goth parties. Tell us a bit about the history of your organisation. We started DarcTyde in early 2001. Our first event would have been a 2-day goth event called Nocturne, but, at the last moment, the person who was funding the majority of the costs pulled out […]

Adam Baroni

 

 Making God’s Bleed. (2014.) Actor, bodybuilder, pro-wrestler, father, all round good guy. Adam Baroni is an up-and-coming British actor and the face of H2N Nutrition.

What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you? I’m different to most actors. I’m more inspired by great people that become actors than the whole drama scene. […]

TAMLA KAHN.

 

 Today we speak to an up and coming South African three-piece rock outfit Tamla Kahn. Now they have an interesting story, coming from a small Limpopo town and relocating to Gauteng to keep up with demand to see them play. What’s the history of Tamla Kahn and origin of your name? John joined the band on 6 February, 2010 and we consider this our official birthday. Before he joined, the band had gone through several working titles, but it was everyone’s decision in the end to call the band Tamla Kahn –Tamla’s full name being Tamla Kahn McMahon– not only because Tamla had started the band, but also because it is original and unique, and we didn’t just want a […]
