Public Service Announcement!

You may have noticed I've been gone a while. That was due to several factors including illness, a very busy period at work, trying to write more, a vacation and general laziness (not in that order). However, I've since got over my bronchitis, killed my work assignment and had a blast on vacation in St. … Continue reading Public Service Announcement!

A Film Festival And A Dance Battle

Found this great roundup of the recently concluded Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival (ttff). Great to see the films being appreciated, but even better to hear sound critical advice. Yes, our film-makers need to come from a more critical place, especially when making documentaries. We are presenting positive overviews right now, but I suspect as … Continue reading A Film Festival And A Dance Battle

Yes, Virginia, There Are People Of Colour In Your European Past

Been following this awesome Twitter account called Medievalpoc for a while now.

Is There Anybody Out There…?

So scientists may have found a giant object in space, which could only have been built by another civilization. I mean, can you believe it? In this lifetime?

Sure, it could also be a spectacular cloud of dust, but who the hell really wants THAT to be … Continue reading Is There Anybody Out There…?

A Talk And An Award

It just so happens he was born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago!  Yesterday I had a great time … Continue reading A Talk And An Award
