Bacchanal Factory Feedback

Last night was the first of an eight week Carnival Series on Synergy TV, Bacchanal Factory, a collaboration between and Scorch Magazine. The hour long show featured segments with Hypa Hoppa , Ronnie Mc Intosh and of course my little gossip blurb that ended the show.

So, since I know many of you tuned in to the Bacchanal Factory based on the numbers logged on the blog chat box, what are your  thoughts, criticism or comments on the show? Since I am involved in the feature I will reserve MY opinion and look forward to yours!

Bacchanal Factory.. bringing the bacchanal or bored to tears?

TRIBE Update

TRIBER's take note, especially  of the new work out session  Digicel  Burn for masqueraders, which started LAST Monday though we are just getting the email;  so that means if I were interested I missed out on TWO sessions, why even bother to mention this in the email TRIBE, I am just saying, kind of a LATE with that bit of information!

And, has anyone ever used the costume delivery service? If you have please leave a comment on if you think it was worth it, personally, I want to collect my costume in person just so I can make SURE it looks like what was advertised  and I get every single piece in my box, I mean who will I  complain to (read argue with)  if I have issues with the costume, the delivery boy?

We People International

Seems like if you want a costume for $1500.00TT and under you should be headed to San Fernando! We People International has launched their Carnival 2010 presentation "A Mural By The Sea" for South mas and you can check out the nine section band on it's website for more costume photos and prices. I have to say it is nice to see what the options are for mas outside of Port of Spain and I only wish more of the regional Carnivals would showcase their offerings for the public as well.
