Screw tumblr I’m on Instagram baby!

January 16, 2014

Right so before I started back blogging I got an iPhone and like countless other “sheeple” the urge to document every mundane aspect of my life overcame me.

All this to say I’m on Instagram and have been for ages now and have become quite the poster!

First post of 2014 with Video

January 7, 2014

So I’ve finally installed WordPress on my iPhone, over a year after having it. That means I’ll be more likely to post pics, videos and stories. I just hope I don’t post my “personal photos” accidentally! 😜

Check out the video here!

The purpose of this revised blog is to be more open with readers about what makes me tick, how things in the world work and to help everyone better understand what’s going on in the world around them in a way they can appreciate.

I’ll also be uploading to YouTube so check out my channel – guess what it’s called.

Watch this space to find out more of what’s happening in the life of the Superlative1.


Barbados Fashion Week 2010

October 21, 2010

Barbados Fashion Week 2010 begins tomorrow, 22nd October and yours truly will be covering the event and chatting with some of the designers.

This year I am very interested in speaking with the younger designers, such as Andrew Harris, AHMW (Andrew Harris Mens Wear) because it is very rare to come across a talented young designer whose primary focus has been on mens clothing. I have a selfish reason for this because I am a man, and as such, I like designers who design for people like me… men.

I have already planned out my wardrobe for the event, and I will hopefully be making contacts for a future endeavor that I am working on, which I will keep you guys posted on. I have not attended in a couple years and I am really excited to see how the designers have matured and how the event itself has developed.

Barbados Fashion Week 2010: Dress for it! And will I ever!


Fashion is W.A.R

September 26, 2010

What does Fashion mean to you?
To many people, Fashion is this intangible whimsical thing that rich people with glass office doors and stark white walls use to set themselves apart from the average citizen.
Truth be told, fashion IS the average citizen. With a total global worth of $300Billion US, the fashion industry simply can’t be for a handful of super rich people you’ve never met. Fashion is about expression, from something as simple as a crisp hem line on a pair of trousers to something as sophisticated as a couture gown- even something like oversized jeans with matching jackets, all of these things are what Fashion is about.
One aspect of Fashion that people often overlook is the many charitable causes that have benefited directly from the efforts of Fashion houses. A noteworthy campain being that of the (product)RED, everything from iPods to Converse are involved in the fight to find a cure for HIV/AIDS, the beneficiary of this particular drive.
However, it is true that for many, fashion is their be all and end all; photographers, designers, models, shopaholics, musicians, actors, gay, straight or taken, there is always someone who is obsessed with fashion. The reason for this is that for people who embrace Fashion, and all its cut-throat splendour they recognize that Fashion is W.A.R:
Wild
Awe-Inspiring
Rebellious
Shred your jeans, lace up your corset or button down your jacket, Fashion is the only aspect of your life you can wear on your back, and yes even that T-Shirt that speaks about your particular religious affiliation, or dissociation is a part of Fashion. If you want to be associated with a particular group you dress as the members dress, and that would be the single most superficial yet brilliantly deep message that Fashion brings to our lives- You are welcome to be who you want and don’t you worry, there’s an outfit for just that!
So, whether you spend two minutes or 30 minutes getting dressed, it’s all a costume, nay army fatigues, so prepare for battle. Are you willing to fight for your cause?

The Fashion is W.A.R initiative by RFAHarewood is set to launch in 2013.

 

 


Where is Rockstar101?

June 18, 2010

While looking through the Billboard Hot 100 checking to see how Shontelle’s highest rising single to date Impossible is doing this week,

I noticed that I hadn’t seen Rockstar 101 by Rihanna (ft. Slash).

Usually, before the video even comes out, the song is SOMEWHERE in the Hot 100 but with the video out a couple weeks now, I’m shocked that it’s no where to be found. At least I was at first.
Then I gave it some thought… the song which stuck out to me the first time I heard the album when it was released, and in my mind, this would have been a power single, especially the way in which I invisioned the music video. So when I heard this was going to be a single I was all excited thinking oh yay! Another potential number one single, then I saw the video and my jaw dropped.

That video looks like how a ghetto person imagines Rock music to be, as opposed to some artistic representation of being a Rockstar. Then when she suddenly dresses up like an Eastern European dominatrix, I gave up on the video altogether. Sad to say, worst video to date by Rihanna. Colour me disappointed.

Oh by the way- why are they putting her in blackface? Just a question.


Guess Who’s Back! Teairra Mari

June 13, 2010

Since I participated in that SingersRoom Covergirl Next Diva thingie where I voted for Shontelle who subsequently won the most votes, I have  been receiving emails from SingersRoom with little snippets about artists and the goings-on in their lives. I was more surprised than annoyed and I decided to give a read and it’s actually insightful.

The second email I got was about Teairra Mari’s new project “At That Point” from which her latest single  “Sponsor” the Gold Digger anthem comes. The article made mention of the fact that she’s still touring promoting her single despite the video being banned on several stations. After watching the video 2 things came to mind, 1- she’s fat. 2- the video’s crap but nothing ban worthy… I think people are just on a hater binge now. I mean… ALL songs from Ciara of recent want banning from tv if they’re going to ban Teairra. Meanwhile, I’m actually a fan of Ciara (hey girl) but really she been trying too hard to act too loose and it’s coming across as desperate, but I digress.

Peep the video below and see for yourself.


After the Hiatus

May 9, 2010

First of all let me say Happy Mother’s Day to all you givers of life out there. Hope the way you treat your children is reflected in the treatment you receive today. Be that a testament to or an indictment against your parenting skills is all on you.

Anyway it’s been one full year since I’ve posted and so many things have happened personally and internationally. I’m now a firm believer in Blackberry Mobile Devices (aka phones), I’ve left the public service and now working for myself because clearly this isn’t my main stay of income… what else… um… I’ve made new friends, excommunicated persons who I used to call friends, and general anarchy and chaos prevailed. I purchased two watches since the last time I posted:

This sexy Guess watch above for Summer

and this equally sexy Encore Oz watch by Marc Ecko for Winter.

All in all, it’s the same old thing:
Men are dogs
Women are bitches
Money gets spent
And it’s all for the riches.

Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter for more timely updates, at RoHareVodka (just click the name) or check the Twitter sidebar I reactivated today with the new twitter name, same account, different name.

Thank you all for sticking with me during my down-time and there’s more to come, just wait and see.


Watching ANTM

April 8, 2009

So for those of you who don’t know, my pc is down so I have spent more time watching tv these past couple of weeks than I have in my entire life. Having said that, I must say that I am even more convinced in my previous stance not to be caught up with television.

However, my current issue is with America’s Next Top Model Cycle too many. I hate myself for being addicted to this stuff but such is the nature of things. The joke now is that I didn’t even know the next cycle had begun so I have no idea what happened prior to tonight’s show and I am not even sure I am watching a current episode.

Tonight there are two episodes back to back, the first one was the commercial for Covergirl and some burn victim girl got sent home because she looked as though she was doing a commercial for Coverolderwoman, the other is that ‘yawnisode’ in which they look back. Oh, she just said it was Cycle 12. Good to know, the quality of my life has greatly improved because of it, I am sure.

This shirt I am wearing smells really nice, have to get some of those dryer sheets, they smell so good. Sorry, commercial break started and I inhaled deeply.

Anyways so I looked up and saw the girls when the episode began and was SHOCKED! The girls this cycle are remarkably unstriking. I don’t know how it is even possible. It’s as though they cast the rejects from previous cycles and put them together. Hey, maybe that’s what it is, the ANTM Dog Special. Okay that was mean, but… I’m pretty so I win.

Oh my god, a commercial for the next episode of 90210, bleh…  Tori Spelling. She really has gotten no cuter.

Focus…

So the bitches (female dogs) are apparently the best that THE most narcissistic woman on earth, Tyra Banks can rake up. I totally lost interest in even writing this post.

Bleh, I’ll watch it next week if I remember.


Stuck With Each Other!

March 4, 2009

Today’s the day people. Shontelle’s new single Stuck With Each Other featuring Akon premiers today and the video is available on Universal Motown’s website, you can also access it via her website, or…. you can simply Click Here!

I actually like the video. It features scenes from the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic and is a really glossy music video, yet, it doesn’t come across as a shameless marketing ploy filled with advertising. Beyoncé and her people could learn a thing or two about subtlety- a la Upgrade U, the Audemars Piguet  ad.


More Important than Chris Brown Beating Rihanna

February 11, 2009

So yeah I know all the talk is about how Chompers (Chris Brown) beat up on Rihanna (allegedly) and it was interesting for a hot 10 minutes however, an even GREATER travesty has happened this very day!

ralph

Pictured above are my Ralph Lauren sunglasses SKU# 498675 RA4007 which were miraculously disappeared from the ZR Van I was on this evening after a lovely day out. Damned public transport!

Sigh… the only thing worse that could happen is if my iPod were to blow up in my face while listening to it rendering me deaf AND ugly. I feel so naked and vulnerable… my reality filter is gone! WHY ME!!!???

I can’t leave home during the day now, so please make all arrangements to see me during sundown hours.

Thanks in advance for your co-operation during this trying time.


Is Your Man Gay

February 8, 2009

I found this to be utter trype and folly when I read it, but I felt like sharing it for a good laugh.
For added effect, I shall drop comments in bold to give it my own personal touch.

Is my man gay?

by GINA AIMEY-MOSS

BEING INVOLVED with a man living on the down low must be a woman’s greatest fear; or certainly something she wouldn’t believe could happen.

Unfortunately in Barbados, as elsewhere, it is not uncommon for men who are in a public relationship with a woman to be having discreet sexual relations with other men.

Although there is a growing tolerance for homosexuality, it is still not widely socially acceptable in Barbados. So, many men and women hide their sexual preference to maintain the status quo. Having a girlfriend is one way a gay man may try to keep a “straight image”. I’ve always said society begats its own ills so that point I must give her credit for, while noting the blatant omission of the term ‘bi-sexual’ in this entire article.

Sadly, this can have dire consequences if he fulfils his gay desires outside the relationship; for instance, his female partner may be unknowingly exposed to sexually transmitted diseases if her cheating boyfriend doesn’t use adequate protection. Because as we all know, only if a man cheats with another man is the woman in fear of contracting something. Which is part of the problem. Monogamy people! If you’re going to sleep around on your own accord so be it, but if you’re in a relationship with someone COME ON! Why be with that person if clearly you want to be somewhere else with someone else?

So, how can you tell if your man’s gay? This should be rich…

According to a young homosexual interviewed by the SATURDAY SUN, there are quite a few tell-tale signs, including those that would be considered clichés. These are:

* He cries at movies. Oh come on!

* He glances at men when they pass, especially the attractive ones. I’m on the fence about that one because it doesn’t mean he wants to bed the fellow.

* He has no qualms expressing, or even gushing, about how attractive another man is. Heterosexual women do it in regards to other women, why can’t heterosexual men? I think it’s just clouding the issue.

* He prefers anal over vaginal sex with you. Now this one affected me in a manner… if your man likes to stick it up your butt, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s GAY although…  I’ll leave it there for now.

* He has an intense interest in fashion and dresses very fashionably; is well groomed and is a little too knowledgeable about different brand names.That is ludicrous. What does looking like you have a job, disposible income and a mirror have to do with being gay? Just grabbing at straws now, clearly.

* He consistently compliments women about their clothes, hair and shoes, as opposed to their face and body. I suppose it would be more appropriate for him to say “Girl, you bubbies look real good!” Which does happen but that’s just disrespectful and not indicative of a heterosexual preference. Actually, having little regard for women can often be a factor in assessing someone’s homosexuality, depending on your school of thought.

* He makes a lot of flamboyant gestures with his hands when he talks. At this point I’d like to point out that some people are just naturally expressive with their hands and such a judgment is highly subjective because what may be flamboyant to you may be subtle to someone else.

* He brags about how many gays think he is attractive. *Headache* That… whoo… I don’t even know what to say there.

* He likes to watch or is turned on by gay porn. Unless we’re talking about some hot girl-on-girl action, the fact that your man is watching and turned on by gay porn and you are aware of this, re-evaluate the state of both your mental healths.

* He has a lot of homosexual friends. This is moot and irrelevant.

* When you ask him if he’s gay, he responds evasively as opposed to denying it. Meanwhile a denial is by no means indicative of him being straight so this too is moot.

These guidelines probably do apply to many men on the down low – especially the last three – but clinical psychologist Dr Marcus Lashley was quick to shoot down all of them.

“There is no absolute way to determine someone’s sexuality,” he said in a telephone interview.

He insisted there was no set criteria or prototype for the gay man and one could only judge on an individual basis.

According to Lashley, a man might display these traits because of his upbringing and cultural background, but not because of his sexuality.

For instance, the well-groomed, fashionable man might be “metrosexual” – American slang referring to a heterosexual who spends a great deal of time and money on his appearance.

Even the man who goes on about how sexy another man is may be expressing what he subconsciously wants for himself; in other words, he’s probably wishing he had six-pack abs like his object of admiration.

Seeing that there may be no real criteria that applies to all men on the down-low, your instincts may be your best “gaydar”.

So what do you do if you think your man is gay?

Make sure you’re listening to your intuition and not your paranoid fears. You need to ask yourself if you really think he’s gay or if you are subconsciously sabotaging your relationship.

Take a moment to meditate on this before you make any drastic decisions.

Shontelle & Akon – Stuck With Each Other

January 14, 2009

So apparently the video for Shontelle’s latest track “Stuck With Each Other” featuring Akon (audio above) is wrapped up. The song comes from the soundtrack to Confessions of a Shopaholic, in theatres, February 13th, 2009 and NOT from her recently debuted album Shontelligence. So far the video looks like it should be a bit glossier than the video for T-Shirt. *Crosses fingers* source for pictures, Shontelleonline.com. Keep up the great work over on that site!
