DLP Launches Snail Picking Initiative

March 21, 2008

It appears as though the slightly used new government of Barbados has declared war on the Giant African Snail plaguing our island.

In so doing they have launched what I call the Snail Picking Initiative which involves members of the general public assembling at 3 in the morning at Rock Hall, St. Thomas to pick snails . Given the fact that this said government has not rectified the public transport issues which have been brought to the table, I wonder how people are supposed to get there. At any rate, I guess that’s the difference between socialists and capitalists. Socialists would assemble a posse, rally troops, get uniforms to show their sovereignty and spend 2-8 hours picking snails one by one. Capitalists would make a call, work out a fee, and pay professional exterminators to deal with the problem.

At any rate, Click Here for a Giant African Snail Recipe I think may come in handy after the windfall I expect them to get. You know what they say, waste not, want not.


In More Rihanna News

March 21, 2008

According to Yahoo! Music News, which would stand to benefit from using or hiring a spell checker before posting articles, OneRepublic lead Ryan Tedder, has marked Rihanna as the next Britney Spears. Insult or compliment?

Fish: The Other Vegetable

March 21, 2008

The sun rises on yet another Good Friday, the day marked by many Christian sects as the day Jesus Christ died for our sins so that we may eat fish.

I know I may have just lost some of you, but if you’re from the Caribbean, you may not be so confused. It is customary that on this day the eating of meat is not done. Enter Fish, the other vegetable, because I don’t understand why people separate fish from meat. Last time I checked fish are very much alive, given that they you know, swim, eat, procreate and die.

Also, like any other meat, they were hunted down, stricken in their prime and served up in a variety of dishes with an array of garnishes.

But beyond just that is the fact that many ‘vegetarians’ eat fish. Call me crazy but that just makes NO sense. Anyway, I have to go read up on some Mahi Mahi recipes… this day shall be long.

Rihanna Still in Top 5 and Top 50

March 20, 2008

Who says she doesn’t have staying power!

good-girl-gone-bad.jpg

Still managing to hold strong on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 5 (after peaking at number3) in the most highly competitive top 10 of recent years with her dance hit Don’t Stop the Music. Apparently her album Good Girl Gone Bad is still holding steady in the top 50 also, coming in at number 31 in the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums, the 5th oldest album on the chart!

Way to go RiRi!

Cashmere Mafia vs. Lipstick Jungle

March 18, 2008

I watched both with an open mind and am here to render my verdict.

cashmere_vs_lipstick.jpg

Left: Lipstick Lesbians Jungle, worst show on tv. Right: Cashmere Mafia the WAY better original.

I began watching Cashmere Mafia first, as it began airing first and was instantly drawn to its charm, wit and humanity. Sure it’s about people far above the average income level but their lives aren’t charmed by any stretch of the imagination. It has this degree of plausibility to it and the situations they get themselves into seem to have a reason behind them. Very well written, directed, produced and acted. Excellent and complementing ensemble cast. When I watched Lipstick Jungle I thought, this is a cheap glossless Cashmere Mafia rip off! The show SUCKS! The writing is poor, the acting is forced at best and the direction is aimless. I HATED it. When I heard that reviewers (who I refuse to even give validation by referencing them) said Lipstick is better then Cashmere I thought to myself they HAD to be getting paid to spout that drivel. Worse is that Lipstick seems obviously patterned off of Cashmere but a poor facsimile that to suggest it’s better shows a lack of true critical thinking.

Oh and the Cashmere Mafia cast is hotter!


The Bachelor Comes to Barbados

March 17, 2008

The Barbados Tourism Authority must be salivating right now.

the-bachelor.jpg

The Season Finale of the new season of the ABC reality hit series, the Bachelor, which begins tonight has already been shot and wrapped up and I have learned from a reliable source (an insider on the set) that the finale was shot in Rihanna‘s home country of Barbados. Everyone who made it that far had a wonderful time on the island and the decision has been made!

However, I won’t go into how it ended because that just wouldn’t be fair now would it.;)


Mariah Carey- Migrate

March 16, 2008

So Miss Mariah Carey or MiMoo as Perez likes to call her was on Saturday Night Live fame whoring promoting her new song Migrate featuring T-Pain.

This is an open invitation to Mariah and T-Pain. Feel free to come to me for English as a Second or Foreign Language lessons. The word ‘migrate’ cannot subsititute ‘go’ in everyday situations.

For example:

  1. Let us go to the club. (Correct)
  2. Let us migrate to the club (Incorrect)

*Note- this only applies if you are not moving into the club.*

So Mariah, whenever you’re ready. Bring 3 or more people and I’ll get you a discount, not that you need one since I am sure this bilge is gonna sell millions.


Tickle Me Emo

March 16, 2008

I should really go to bed but my love of comedy, satire and sketches keeps me going.

I thought this was so dark and funny it was worth watching a couple of times. Tickle Me Emo from Depress-A-Me Street LMAO.


iPod Commercial Parody

March 16, 2008

I know I am late with these things but I don’t watch Mad TV, not that I don’t like it, I don’t have the channel.

So I found this just now and I agree totally, and I am particularly loving the fact that it’s Feist. Enjoy.


Take A Bow by Rihanna

March 15, 2008

Okay my question is how much time DOES she spend in the studio.

rihannaallurecover.jpg

The young Barbadian songstress and cover queen has put out another tune on her label Def Jam’s AV page for all you Rihanna addicts out there. The new song Take A Bow is unusually low tempo for a new release given her debut singles track record which sees club bangers as leading the charge. However, it’s a catchy song and she shows off her vocal improvement.
