Stop the madness, please!

Now, if you know me and know my history in TRIBE I have never been in one of the "must have" sections, I always choose a costume that I personally really love, that I think would look best on me regardless of the hype around other costumes or what friends like. I am usually in a section that no one wants right away, that takes a few days to sell out and I am pretty happy with that because it always surprises people how great the section looks on the road... the section they overlooked because they were so busy trying to get into the HOT section.

When I used to play in Harts I went with what my friends chose and most of the times it would be the All Female Section, sold out on the first day of registration so I also know how it is to be in that mad rush to get into the popular section as well.

However, this year has got to be the most insane I have EVER seen when it comes to getting into a section, when I say pathetic desperation it does not even come close to these two costume Wanted Ads on Carnival Junction , for a costume that isn't even sold out because registration HAS NOT STARTED!!!!!

The mania surrounding Loulan has people saying if they do not get that costume they are not playing mas, which is crazy because there are choices ! Everyone cannot be in ONE section especially when there are others that I would gladly play in Osage, Charmeuse, Threads of Morocco, Mulberry and Tyrian Purple, for example, are also among my favourites. Get a grip people;reevaluate the madness, give yourself choices and come back to reality! All this desperation so early in the season is really unnecessary!

As for me, I won't be perpetuating this type of hysteria, for all those following me on Facebook and THINK you know what section I am going to be in think again! It is going to be a SECRET!



Generation X Band Launch Review

Reader submitted review of Generation X Launch of "Candy Land", their Miami Carnival 2009 presentation, which took place on July 25th:

Revelers!!!! The Miami Carnival count down is on!

On July 25th 2009, GenerationX the largest and most popular band in Florida, launched their 2009 presentation “Candy Land” at the beautiful Nikki Marina at the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, Florida.

As I walked towards the venue I was meet with the aroma and refreshing breeze of the Atlantic Ocean and a stunning glow of a flowing fountain in the center of the courtyard. Walking through the entrance it was decorated richly with a huge Candy Land Sign and large lollipops, sweeties, and candy with the beautiful Gen X models decked off in their Candy Land outfits all with shorts, wigs, striped thigh-high socks, greeting the patrons. I felt as if I was walking through Williy Wonkas Chocolate Factory! Once inside, I was treated to the sounds of Miami’s favorite Dj’s Eternal Vibes, Dorenzo, and Genesis blazing the Soca with Sizwe C on the mic, hyping the already energized crowd.

Around 2 A.M, the models were ready and lined up to display. The opening act was a spectacular display of a fire show. The crowd stared in awe as the firewoman danced her fire routine swinging her glowing torches in the air while seductively dancing. With the crowd still in a trance the models entered the stage with section displays of “Licorice”, “Skittles”, “Aqua Mints”, “Cotton Candy”, “Pop Corn”, and “Pepper Mango”. The band is definitely looking "sweet" again with 6 stunning sections for the revelers to choose from!

After the dazzling display of costumes, the huge piƱata-sweet hanging from the ceiling was opened and out came candy and a ticket for a free costume to the lucky winner who found the coupon. The crowd was now ready and hyped to get on bad! It was as if party goers were in a carnival spell. They were winning low to the floor and dancing on top of tables and bar counters. You can always count on GenerationX to put on a great party and show!
