The Insanity has Begun...

As seen on Carnival Junction:

Will sign up in TRIBE for you

No TLC!!! For TT$750, I will sign up for a Tribe costume for you since I am a TLC holder and will not be playing wih Tribe. For TT$650 + TT$1000 cash, your costume option and sizes, I will register for your costume (Female). You will then be responsible for the payment balance. Remember costume registration begins soon!!!

Contact:
Kai Barratt


Tribe 2009

See all ads from Smash24/7

I need 2 male costumes fro 2009, i know its early.
Thanks

Someone needs to revoke or deactivate KAI BARRAT's TLC card, YES I am putting you on FULL BLAST for taking money from people to use your NON TRANSFERABLE TLC CARD!!!

Unbelievable, and to think the TLC card DOES NOT guarantee you a costume!

I wonder if that price includes her going to Cascadia and standing in line to register you as well? steups!

EDITED TO ADD:
The ad from Kai Barrat with the TLC card for sale has disappeared. Thank goodness someone came to their senses and took it down!

3:30PM!

Carnival Diva said...

Ridiculous! People like this causes bands to change the way they do things greatly!

Tr|n|gYa| said...

NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!

Watch and see something eh...I am contacting TRIBE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

duracellie said...

wayyyyy! look how dis tribe frenzy gettin out of hand.. $750 THEY SAY YUH KNOW! lol.. wow... i'm convinced ppl have officially gone insane..lol

buublenut said...

she will probably give some piper a 20 out of that to squat outside Cascadia....

Intrested to hear what comes of this.......these are the type of people that resale costumes at a marked up cost.

buublenut said...

....and what happen if the person pay her and the costume sold out or the band sell out....hopefully tribe will cut iff her card - if they can find out who she really is as this is jsut a screen name...

S. said...

Ok...seriously???

Now , of course this is assuming that this chic did in face post this ad...but we also all know people can be malicious and someone might just be trying to smear her name!

If she did in fact post this...it's sad yes, but it's an obvious display of the basics of demand and supply! If everyone didn't hype up tribe and act like it's a life or death matter to play with them...this wouldn't be happening! So really this "post" is a product of people acting like tribe is the be all and end all of the carnival experience.

Now I have played with tribe, and will continue to as long as I have a costume to play in! Tribe is not without it's faults but the obsession people have with them is unhealthy!

Anyway, I digress...the sad thing is that there is some DESPERATE CARNIVAL LOVING FOOL out there that would give this chic more than $750 to sign up for them!

People get a grip on yourselves....I LOVE carnnival, been playing mas for over 11 years..and we care so much about playing with tribe- you think tribe care bout us?

If come Saturday the band sells out- which I'm sure it will...what are you gonna do KILL YOURSELF? No, you'd either have to hope someone is selling their costume closer to carnival- and that always happens because trinis tend to cloud their priorities- they would rather spend $3000+ on a costume, and then complain they have no money to buy milk for their kids! February is gonna roll around and someone is gonna be selling cos they realise they can't afford it!

Bagogyul said...

Yes SAUCY PUT DEM ON FULL BLASTTTT!!!
Lawd allyuh have me laughing out loud loud in d' people and dem wuk!

afro chic said...

Wha wrong with you s? If I doh get into Kiskadee FL on Saturday I going and slit my wrists!

squeezle said...

*making a note to sneak into Afro Chic's house and steal all her knives*

hotandgroovy said...

bbwwwwwaaaaahhhaaa i saw that this morning and i was like wtf? people are crazy, lol!

Pix said...

Well i am Saucy and you al have the insider information, i got it today that all TRIBE members have the preveledge to pre-register 50 of ther close friends before the bachanal start. The reason for this is to avoid what happened last year where there had to keep adding costumes to the list and hence overload the band. TRIBE predicts that with its exisiting TLC memebers that there will be very limited, if any costumes remaining for Monday's Non- TLC Card Holders to purchase. I love how Carnival Jumbie commented on the carpal tunnel syndrome-- keep click till i get a costume on Saturday. A birdie tell meh the time it switching on, but soon everyone will know when the next e-mail buss!! These birds of a feather have us turning into Coo-Coo Birds!!

Pix said...

Correction: Well I hope Saucy and you all have the insider information ... sorry i was typing very fast, like i could not wait to tell someone

Carnival Jumbie said...

OH LAAAAAAAWDDDD I GO DEAAAAAD. NAH!!! Even I did not think people could have reach to that point.LOLOLOLOLOL.PPl scalping TLC now??? She deserve the Issac Hunte award today. And she so bold face she eh even putting the costume in your name, when she disappear with your money what guarantee you have that you have her authorisation when time come to collect??

jv said...

All I have to say is...... hmmph!!!!! I just hope she doesn't take this persons money and de next minute she gone.... All I can say for people that dont have a TLC with tribe is to wait until the ones with TLC have finished registering. Not everyone who played this year MAY NOT play next year. Besides there are 16 sections and not everyone has the same taste in costumes. All u can do is wait and see.

cute dougla said...

I wonder if this was a Spice, elements or Ip costume if some bloggers would be this passionate?

Trinibears said...

WOW...And I thought I was Shameless..

Carnival 'oman said...

Just now Tribe will have eye retina to make sure you are who you say you are when presenting the tlc card.

MsGray said...

Sauce,

Someone going to put a hit out on you girl....lol.

That right there is poor conduct and I'm glad she took it down. Trying to make a dollar off people stresses. As if carnival wasn't pricey enough...steups!

S. said...

AfroChic, You're hilarious...But I urge you do NOT slit those wrists...:-) You have so much to live for!

You'll get into your choice...if only God's way of sparing your family the agony of a possible wrist slitting moment.

I'm thinking all TLC holders who move swift on Saturday have a good chance of getting into the band...cos NOT all TLC holders will necessaryily be playing next yr- ppl who can't get vacation, ppl who are 9 mnths pregnant at the time, ppl who BROKE...so ppl gotta a chance.

As for the non-TLC'ers - lick you LIPS, pucker up and give tribe a BIG FAT JUICY kiss goodbye! And hope and pray that someone is selling their costume come Feb 2009!

Trini-in-Toronto said...

I don't see what the big deal is. How is this different from selling a costume for profit on Carnival Junction?

Trini Orisha Gyal said...

Some people chirren.........(shakes head in disbelief).

Tr|n|gYa| said...

cute dougla...I don't think the level of passion would be this high if it were a Spice, Elements or IP costumes, because 2 of those bands don't even have a loyalty service established, and well, IP didn't sell out last year.
It's all about public demand my dear, and Tribe has it.

Saucy aka "The Sauce" said...

trini in toronto, I had the same response to selling costumes for profit last year :D
