Third Eye Blind (sometimes abbreviated as 3eb) is an American alternative rock band formed in the early 1990s in San Francisco Third Eye Blind's first album, Third Eye Blind, was released in 1997. The album had five singles: "Semi-Charmed Life,"
"Graduate," "How's It Going to Be," "Losing a Whole Year," and "Jumper." "Semi-Charmed Life" peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was number 1 on the Modern Rock Tracks for 8 weeks. It also earned Third Eye Blind a Billboard Music Award for modern rock
track of the year.
Lead singer, Stephan Jenkins ended a three-year relationship with actress Charlize Theron in October 2001. Some of Third Eye Blind's third album, Out of the Vein, appears to explore the emotions he experienced as a result of that breakup. From 2002 to 2007, Jenkins dated Vanessa Carlton.
One of the biggest earning movies from 1997 was “My best friend’s wedding”, here is the trailer from back in the day :)

Mommy Matters - Putting the spotlight on dyslexia
In Mommy Matters we find the experts with the answers. It is World Dyslexia month in October and there is still much to be done regarding awareness of the disease, how common it is and how it can be treated. That is where the RADA team comes in. An urgent need arose while they were working with children battling with learning and reading deficiencies, to define dyslexic children’s specific cognitive problems and to assist them in appropriate ways to learn to cope with their disability.
There are so many institutions supporting sufferers of ADHD/ADD; Autism etc. and yet the devastating inability to read, write and spell, is ignored although it affects +/- 15% of the worldwide population, regardless of culture, language, age and gender. These statistics apply to South African borders as well! Sandra Stark from The Red Apple Dyslexia Association spoke to me about Dyslexia awareness month and why we need to be informed as parents and also understand that dyslexia affects adults as severely as it does children. For more information visit:
Sandra Stark mentions the film "Like stars on earth" during her interview and you need to watch this film in order to understand the impact of dyslexia on a household.

Aardklop - Lizz Meiring is wonderful in "Cheaper than roses"
Dit is so lekker wanneer Lizz Meiring op OFM kom kuier. Sy is altyd vol energie, stories en lag met oorgawe! Die jaar het sy vir die eerste keer 'n engelse produksie by Aardklop wat ons land se geskiedenis onder 'n ander lens neem. Almal wil tog net liefde ontvang of hoe!? Luister na ons gesprek hier!
Sometimes running away from who we are brings us closer to who we are. Sometimes the past and the present merge in a way that forces us to confront and accept the unacceptable. A heart-warming, unusual, funny and sad story of a woman who did not want to be “cheaper than roses”. With Lizz Meiring. Playwright: Ismail Mahomed. Director: Zane Meas. Music: Coenie de Villiers. Costumes: Mariska Meyer. Set and lighting: Kosie Smit. Producer: Kosie House of Theatre. Made possible by the Suidoosterfees and NAF.  Tickets from Computicket.
Aardklop - "God die digter" is ongelooflik
Dit was vir my 'n ongelooflike voorreg om Prof. T.T Cloete te ontmoet en met die bekroonde digter te gesels oor die produksie "God die digter". Hy vertel hoe die musikale bydraes van Babette Viljoen en Olga Leonard sy gedigte vir hom ook vernuwe het. Luister gerus na die gesprek hier onder.
’n Viering van T.T. Cloete se 90ste verjaarsdag. “Daar is meer poësie in die sneeuvlokkie en toktokkie, as in die letterkunde, want die aarde is deur ’n digter gemaak...” Die skeppingsverhaal word oorvertel met poësie en toonsettings van die bekroonde digter T.T. Cloete, wat op 90-jarige ouderdom self in ’n intieme atmosfeer sy gedigte voorlees. In dié eiesoortige produksie word musiek by die woord gevoeg deur musikante Babette Viljoen en Olga Leonard. Musiekregie: Lize Beekman. Kaartjies by Computicket.
