Machel Autograph Signing....

I hope you guys bookmarked the website Triniscene N.Y. because you need to be checking it daily for the latest news on the Machel H.D. concert! Have a look at the following flyer courtesy Triniscene N.Y. for information on Machel's autograph signing tomorrow:

Who let the cat out of the bag?

Well, so many exciting developments are surrounding Carnival 2008 I can hardly wait for band launching season to begin! Someone whispered to me that in the next few weeks a VERY popular band will make an announcement of the date of their band launch so that their overseas masqueraders will be able to attend the event. It seems like they are paying attention and have realized that many of their loyal customers are eagerly looking forward to a first look at costumes and are willing to make the trip back to Trinidad JUST for the launch. If the date of the band launching is released early it gives those so inclined enough time to get their flights booked! I guess we will all have to wait and see if the early bird does catch the worm!

Said same band has already begun preparations for their 2008 presentation and the “buzz” phrase is that they are BRINGING SEXY BACK!! I hope you ladies have started to hit the gym, since the costumes will be super sexy (read skimpy) and promise to satisfy all the needs we women desire; lots of feathers, lots of beads, lots of glam …and maybe a few hot men thrown in for good measure! Expect lots of fabulous frontlines as well!! Who knows, I won’t be surprised if they plan on giving us a “teaser” by changing that billboard to a “hint” of what to look forward to in 2008.

Finally for those going to Crop Over, look sharp a new band just might be debuting this year! If all goes well and plans do work out, seems like Barbados might be in for the ultimate experience on Kadooment Day! Now imagine that, what a cure for the Carnival blues! You strut your stuff in Trinidad then off to Barbados a few months later with the same band to do it all again; I am hoping this one comes off the ground for 2007…if not…2008!

Eager Beavers

Well here I was thinking that my excitement for Carnival 2008 is unique and I must be the only person dreaming of costumes and harassing TRIBE’s customer service! Lo and behold I was informed that there is a group called “Myths and Magic…TRIBE 2k8” on a website called Facebook, well you know I had to check it out myself! Now, I am not into these social networking websites like Hi5 or Facebook, I tried it once I deleted my profile as I realized it is just not my thing. No offense to anyone who frequents these sites, I know they are extremely popular I just never saw the appeal really.

Anyway, I did end up creating a profile over at Facebook since I wanted to see what this “Myths and Magic” group was all about and was forced to register. To my surprise I discovered the group already has 180 members, several of whom are bloggers! I saw Caisoqueen, Kevianne and Tiffany are all members of the group, in addition to a few members of TRIBE’s committee liming over there as well. Maybe they are doing research as I see that everyone wants WINGS for Carnival 2008!

So if you want to join this group and share in the Carnival fever, go over to Facebook and register. It’s all in good fun and the people over there are very excited already! You can leave a message on the wall, start a discussion or just browse through photos of TRIBE on the road this year. And to the chick who wrote this on the wall in response to her being on the ball with the Carnival information:

“ Not me eh.... de amt ah ppl send me that carnival blog ting... hahahahha.. whoeva u are woman... YUH iS A BOSS!!!!!”
Thank you very much, I think the group idea is brilliant!
