In Love With Warupan

A few months ago I did an interview with Jiri Mills, the creative force behind the character, Warupan. (See interview here) While talking with Jiri, I could see the passion and enthusiasm he has for Warupan. As a lover of pandas, I was happy with what I heard. The question of when he’d have merchandise available for sale arose. As promised, Warupan sweatshirts and caps…

Thought I’d Make A Christmas Ad

Christmas has always been my favourite holiday of the year. I get to see family members I wouldn’t normally see throughout the year, catch up with friends of old and new and most importantly (for me at least) I take the time to appreciate the joys of life. This Christmas will be the second time…

Of BREXIT and Of War and all these things

It is indeed a sad day. It is with no happy announcement that anyone can talk about this whole BREXIT mess. War is coming, if not already on our doorsteps. The Pound is already sliding, which may eventually lead to unrest within Britain, its former colonies that still depend on it (Jamaica included) and the…

How Dare You, Piers Morgan?!

Being Jamaican: A Technicality

I have been missing from the blogging world for a few months, not because I wanted to, but merely because I didn’t feel like writing. It wasn’t until a friend of mine shared a link with me that the urge to write resurfaced. For most people within Jamaica, and for Jamaican expats, who keep abreast…

RELEASE

On February 13, 2014, I attended a show put on by the Quilt Performing Arts Company held at The Philip Sherlock Centre, UWI Mona. This show was like, yet unlike, any other that the group had put on. Well, from my vantage point. The show was given the name RELEASE. When I first heard the name of…

And What Do WE Teach OUR Boys?

Hi there readers, I’m once again going to use Beyoncé’s self-titled album as the pivot for this entry. Specifically looking at “Flawless” (feat. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie). As a matter of fact, Beyoncé’s part in the song will hardly be looked at as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s verse has been stirring up a lot of thoughts in my head. I hope you’re ready, cuz I…

Pretty Hurts…Right?

Hi my readers, I want to apologize for being absent these past couple of months with my blogs. Too much was happening in my personal and professional life, that I couldn’t find the time to sit around the computer and put my thoughts together. However, I have decided that instead of making a post on every episode…
