Rodell Warner – Trinidad is Offline – From Low Lives 3 - by Jorge Rojas

Less than 17% of Trinidad & Tobago’s households are connected to the internet. A live online event originating in T&T is likely to have many more viewers outside of T&T than in T&T. An unadvertised live internet event is likely to have no local viewers at all – This performance aims to exploit that phenomenon by broadcasting an image that would be received as uncomfortable in T&T: grown men playing and enjoying what is typically considered to be a schoolgirls’ handclapping game.

 

while the percentage may be accurate in terms of households, internet access is by no means limited. many ppl use their mobile phones to access the internet mainly for email/messaging services. no i dont have any statistical data to prove my point. And of course an unadvertised event will probably have no viewers! I could tell you that. even advertised events dont draw a crowd coz well ppl have other things to do; have that problem with the NObehaviourSHOW. I would also guess that from a nation of just over 1 million people with 10 times more than that in the diaspora international viewership may well exceed that of local.

 

the thing that really irked me was the handclapping reference. i not sure what is the problem with it being done by grown men. i actually trying to teach it to a nearly three year old. and last i checked i have a penis and think myself male. the handclapping does not make me uncomfortable at all. maybe it would make 17% of brainwashed ‘small church’ goers uncomfortable! (no statistical data to prove)

yes the video was uploaded to create discussion to here’s your chance… exploit!

OneTalks – Make It Hapn

25 February, 2011 Leave a comment

Detnator presents “OneTalks” a new online series. Join us as we present a fresh, no frills perspective on issues surrounding the music and entertainment industry in Trinidad & Tobago and how they affect us all, from underground artists to major players to the public.

Make It Hapn has been shaking up the local underground music scene for some time now. His unique, no holds barred approach to his craft and his commitment to being a voice for the underdog in T&T society makes him one of the fiercest lyricists in T&T.

Now, Make It Hapn has entered the soca arena with two offerings, “Must Come Een” and “Activate”.

We had a one on one with MIH on the challenges he faced as a newcomer to the soca fray.

I was Not Ready

22 January, 2009 4 comments

I just saw what has to be one of the worst attempts at a first. If Iwer George really spent over £150,000 GBP (pounds sterling) he was robbed. At current exchange rates that converts to 1,300,150.38 TTD. Claiming that it was the first ever FULL 3D character oriented video in Trinidad & Tobago‘s history is left to be proved cause I not sure if I saw him in it, or if one has already been produced. That would then make it a hybrid and Rikki Jai had a video with an animated self that looked alot better than Iwer’s. Rikki’s ‘Show Me Your Motion’ was done in 1992 by Advance Dynamics. I have the video to prove it! Pumpin’, 1990, also had a computer animated piece.

Considering the fact that I spent the better part of three months actually learning about 2D/3D animation I think I could say that this video was a tragedy. I am ashamed that Iwer and others believe that this has any merit.

Check out Iwer’s Ready video De Boss – Ready or the original airing of the Premiere SNL 22th Jan 2009 Segment 4.

this bandwagonist’s concept

24 November, 2006 Leave a comment

I embarked on this project to voice my opinion and to impart knowledge. I like hearing about new talent and listening to what they have to offer. I have become very disenfranchised with the music industry, among other things, especially where i come from in Trinidad & Tobago. If you don’t sing SOCA, you are not recognized for your achievement until someone on the international scene does it, you dead or BOTH.

I would love to support my local artists but many seem to be looking for that quick dollar. They release burned CDs that cost less than TT$30 to manufacture, and want to sell it for TT$100 and more, when I can get a Glass Replicated CD for the same price; sometimes cheaper if I import them myself, or even get a compilation from the Cassette Man on the corner who has the same quality product; who me nah promote.

Many an artist can not depend on album sales to make their living. Live Shows / Performances, DUB Plates and other business ventures is where they have to look. Invest in yourself. Jay-Z says it best… “I’m not a ‘business man‘, I’m a business… man!” That’s what we all have to see ourselves as. Businesses. Constantly marketing ourselves. Constantly improving what we have to offer.

The end all of this blog will be my opinions. My take on a situation / artist / song lyric. Music is Life. GUiDANCE…
