Carnival Tribe is not about Carnival … it’s about printing money and pushing THEIR idea of the Carnival experience
Playing mas in Trinidad is a bucket list highlight for many people, especially those second and third generation Trinidadians who’ve only heard about how great Trinidad Carnival is while playing mas in New York, Toronto, Miami etc. As a veteran “fete sket“, I’ve crossed the stage multiple times with Poison and now Tribe and to be perfectly honest, I couldn’t …Read More »

After all the Carnival festivities … it’s back to the rest of fetes for the Carnival season prior.

Ultimate Lime 2012 : Hyatt Regency Trinidad … Yet another “Be Seen” fete
Well typical overpriced fete …but well organized, good food and definitely unlimited drinks down the line. Now the definition of “Liming” in Trinidad, is really where a bunch of friends or family gather for a nice little intimate time together. This was definitely not a small lime, when you think of the definition … One of things I really couldn’t …Read More »

Soca in Moka 2012 … so you’re looking for tickets?
I’ve compiled a couple years of photos on Soca in Moka below. I assume that you’re here because you’re looking for tickets for the fete. I’m not here to tell you the fete is overpriced and that it has been overrated for years, because if you’re looking for tickets, then you don’t care about the price of these all inclusives. …Read More »
Trinis like salt!! And I’m number 6 in the world … woot!!
In Trinidad, we have a cliche… “Trinis like salt … cause they in eeeeeverything!” … Sometimes I wonder what the hell I’m doing in some places myself. I’ve lived in Montreal for a couple years and I survived the great Montreal Icestorm (which really wasn’t that great … but losing electricity across the city makes you understand how pathetic and …Read More »
I am a food douche … fuh real … and I make no apologies
I started watching a movie this weekend … this insipid Woody Allen movie called “Midnight in Paris” … it was so fucking stupid … I couldn’t even get through the first 20 minutes before getting annoyed … and the reviews talk about the charm and other nonsense … but the awesome part was the character Micheal Sheen played (this douche …Read More »
I want to be the most travelled Trinidadian in the world …
There … I said it! It’s not some huge achievement … it’s really just a goal. So I’m aiming to hit my 100th country before 40 (6 years from now), which shouldn’t be a difficult goal, but then the most difficult commodity to find in your 30’s is actually time! All the social pressures are multiplied and the gloves come …Read More »
