Monkey Business

Bottomline is…stop jumping on all these different bandwagons that only serve to distract and lose you! Shut the hell up if you are not willing to do something, as if you are not part of the solution then you are definitely part of the problem! Shut the hell up!

Virginal Bolt and the things that make you go hmmmmmmmmm…

Some weeks ago I, in passing heard some drama about Usain Bolt, Jamaica’s pride and joy and phenomenon locally and internationally, being the star of Virgin Media’s ‘power of our network’ campaign.  I decided to watch this commercial, and as I expected it really fell short in deserving all the hubbabuloo about it, as a […]

Youth Crime, Marijuana and Golden Eggs

It was with almost amusement that I read the article entitled ‘Youth Crime down in California after Ganja is legalised’ published in the sunday gleaner, December 2, 2012. For years Jamaican grass root musicians, hailing and representing depressed and marginalised groups and even a politician (probably the only time these two groups will ever agree) […]

Candle in the Wind – Lava K

Drag Queens/Transgenders are perhaps the most maligned of the LGBT community, both within the community and within the straight world.  For a very base appreciation of who/what a drag queen transgender is, a drag queen […]

The Periphery of extremely violent violence

A street dance. Mountain View Ave. Kingston. Jamaica. Home to many gay and lesbian Jamaicans. Over 300 people and a constant spread of extremely homophobic sentiments blaring to a group of largely marginalised members of one of the most violent communities in east kingston. It appears by our undue focus on that was Buju and […]

This big dutty passa passa inna Jamaica: Homosexuality

Dear Lord have mercy on our lying souls.  If it were up to me, I would start outing every closet battyman and sadamite in Jamaican clergy, politics, music, media and marital unions etc etc that sit comfortably in the closet and throw stones at homosexuality contributing to this very confusing and schizophrenic state of homophobia […]
