Welcome to Extremely Foreword – an eclectic blog bringing you stories, art, news, life and culture in a Based, To-the-point, NO to Low BS Environment – your antidote to the mainstream. New posts, interesting takes, fresh angles and thought-provoking takes every weekday – whether you want to be serious or flippant. Style and Beauty tips; Behind-the-scenes coverage of the entertainment scene; Calm, factual and independent news; Business and finance; Science and Tech – all delivered quick, to the point and in extremely foreword style – PLUS all the old favourite longform columns, commentary, Memes and Snapshots from author and editor Peter van der Walt. Fresh posts every Monday to Friday. Memes of Consciousness bring some of the funniest, wisest or most thought-provoking quotes to the fore, while SnapShots combine casual photography and pithy observation. The monthly Extremely Foreword column is a cynical rant I really should be ashamed of (generally being such a positive chap) and – fearless as Quixote – we’ll go wherever our fancy strikes us in essays or articles filed under the category of Nomenclaturia Pedestria – which, frankly, was the most pretentious title I could think of. There’s some quality hand me downs and sensational sloppy seconds in FineFinds reviews for you to feast on. What began as Peter’s personal blog is now the place to find your daily fix of something new, something different and something extra.
