not such a fan of sean paul. I've always felt that lyrically he's quite weak.

buuuuuuuut.... his dancers are WICKED!

From the first video of his i saw "gimme de light" his dancers were sick.

I always thought that when he went mainstream his dancers and their moves got a bit watered down to appeal to the masses.

He makes up for this in his video "so fine" though. dis is how Caribbean girls throw it dong! Especially the dancer on the left at 2:09.

Oh Greta...

i loooooooove Greta Garbo. She was so confident; she knew exactly what she wanted to accomplish and set out to do it...and so well. She was so on point.

Nothing short of brilliant. I fell in love with her when i watch Ninotchka:

i hate the stupid selling points of the movie though. lame angle.

Hulk Smash!

i am missing the bag i keep usb cables & other important stuff like my mac remote in. I am VERY annoyed right now!

Please stop!!!

There's been a spate of horrendous accidents on the roads of T&T for a while now. The most recent and tragic being that which claimed the life of 5 individuals, 3 or which were children. To have children cut down before they even reach the prime of their life is especially obscene.

Alot of these accidents are caused by selfish, arrogant, aggresive people, who unfortunately for the rest of us, are licensed to wreak havoc on the nation's roads.

This brings me to my experience tonight. So, I'm standing on the intersection of Long Circular Rd & the Western Main road and from my spot I witness 3 of the most ridiculous drives I've ever seen in my life.

The driver of the first car, deciding that waiting is not his thing, executed one of the duttiest overtakes I've ever seen. I was so tight, and the speed at which it was done was nothing short of breakneck... I'm so angry and frustrated at these people i cause myself wishing that he would just crash somewhere away from everyone and maim himself so the rest of us could just get a break. Horrible, I know, but I'm so frustrated and disgusted with these type of people :/

The second bad drive came courtesy Mr PAZ 3900 (yes, ah see yuh plate!). De man decided to suddenly switch direction by doing a u-turn at break neck speed without even assessing who was coming and from where. Bravo!!!!! I'm sure if he crashed this is what he would say...

Finally, the award for "the person most likely to lose his life or end up neutered" goes to the next guy. Him and his partners, driving their cool, super fast motorcycles, breaks the red light. He comes this close to smashing into a sedan which is about to turn up onto Long Circular Rd.

The hard thing about these people and the accidents that they cause is that alot of them escape unscathed but leave behind carnage of epic proportions. I'll never forget the accident a couple years ago where those 4 youngsters lost their life from getting a bad drive on the highway. It was a hit and run that alot of people will never forget, especially the relatives of these boys who were (to me) murdered in a horrendous manner. I heard from a source that one of the boys was unrecognizable because his face had been removed during the accident :('

Let's stop the madness please. please.

I've had the pleasure of seeing some great local musical talent on display in the past month. The company that I work for sponsors some great local artistes (Destra, Kes the Band and Karma) and we got the opportunity to see them, as well as smaller local bands Lanyap and Skid Nevely, rock de stage at the Digicel Outta Control Free concert.

It was simply wicked! It sucked that people came a little late so they weren't able to take much of Lanyap. They have a great sound: a synergistic mix of rock, reggae. It was also a shame that i couldn't get my videographer skills together to actually get some good video of their performance. But if you feel like you want to get to know them, visit their facebook page. My favourite song from them is i need you because it's like they're channeling the thoughts of every Trini right now given the social challenges that we've been encountering over the past decade or so.

Next on the lineup was Skid Nevely. Let me tell you something: I'm very cynical when it comes to rock music of our time. I'm wary of fast riffs, bad lyrics and lame vocals. I'm also wary of cookie cutter bands, those of whose songs, if played one after other it would be difficult to decipher where one started and another ended. Initially I must admit that painted Skid into this category. Initially.

I've heard them twice live and let me tell you, they reaaaaaaaaaal bad! That pan is soooooo sweet. It draws you in and their energy, flawless overall sound and eclectic mix of song selection (from Red Rat to Sublime) makes you stay put. They have some nice material of their own as well like the song KIA. Have a look

When Skid finished mash up de place, Karma came on. The crowd had grown significantly by that time despite the rain. Ravi B has energy to lend so their performance was inherently great. They are great local cover band and they are good at that but I was a little disappointed that they didn't play much Chutney :('

I didn't stay for Destra or Kess because some delicious but deadly oysters did me in. But I'm sure I'll be able to take them in again soon because they are mainstays on the local talent scene and you're guaranteed to get a great show from both of them. Plus, I hate long posts and this one is très longue already. I'll post the videos i did mange to get later.

Take it easy
