The Other Side of Carnival is a soon to be released documentary… started in 2007 resulting in the filming of the 2009 Trinidad Carnival… followed small town Mass Bands, Port-of-Spain’s The Blue Devils and the general public through their journey of Carnival and managed to get an overall outlook to the life lived through it and beyond… saw first hand how Trinidad shuts down for this event and comes together to celebrate. But the celebration can get out of hand and there is another side to Carnival that not many see or want to admit is there. The criminal side that effects community, the tourism that boosts it’s popularity and the closure of schools and work places that
effectsaffects the economy.
This documentary captures the roots of Carnival and how far some are trying to keep it alive, and how others have lost there way.
Beenie Man‘s offering Pop Off on the Boasty riddim by Stephen McGregor is a sexually laced track that details what happens after his pants Pop Off…
while listening to the track I was laughing and said to myself… “that’s why they BAN Daggering tune pon d radio in Jamaica”… the song has no reference to daggering it only refers to Straight Sex… whatever that means… the line that got me tho is when Beenie Man says that he has to draw for his Vaseline…
draw fi mi Vaseline
it could have been a great song for STI prevention… well the Latex Condom industry… but it is inaccurate… Latex + Vaseline = don’t mix
Because petroleum jelly is oil-based, it interferes with the structure of latex. Using petroleum jelly with latex condoms weakens the material very quickly, increasing the chance of rupture.
Time for these Artists/Entertainers to get serious about spreading messages… I am glad to see that Beenie is trying to spread the Condomize message but he needs to ensure that the info is accurate…
Can anyone enlighten me as to why ‘they’ always seem to need Vaseline when having intercourse?
