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!

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 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!

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:
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.

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.

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.

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.

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