Don't Get Your Panties In A Bunch !

Last night I, along with several other people, viewed Fantasy Barbados' live stream of their Cropover 2012 presentation "Warriors of Africa". The event took place at UWI (University of the West Indies) Cavehill and naturally being a BAND LAUNCH my main purpose for viewing was to see costumes as I will be jumping for Kadooment and Fantasy is a possible band of choice.

Now people who know me and even if you only know me via the blog know that when it comes to mas and costumes I am bordering obsessive. So, when the "launch" started with a mini speech about MSC courses at the UWI Cavehill I sent this tweet: 

Ok at a Band Launch people are there for ONE reason and ONE reason only... costumes!
 Why am I watching a speech ?! 

Imagine my surprise when at 12:17AM this morning I get a message from a Bajan friend that a certain newbie Cropover blogger said that I was saying negative things about Barbados and "shitting up Bim" on Facebook. 

Listen, lets get one thing straight I NEVER said anything anti Barbados, we were talking costumes and costumes ONLY. This could have been a launch for Grenada Carnival, Caribana or Nottinghill my sentiments would have been the same if I was sitting around waiting to see costumes and had to sit through a lecture.

Obviously my concept of a band launch and what Fantasy Barbados presented was different, however I expect to see costumes at a Band Launch and that was my ONLY purpose for viewing. Wen bands in Trinidad launch HUNDREDS of costumes during our "band launch season" people comment from around the world , do we brand them anti- Trinidad because they complain about waiting too long to see costumes on Triniscene's live stream?

And the amazing thing is several people were making comments on the live-stream chat expressing the very same sentiment and some of them were Bajan! 

I do NOT appreciate some upstart spreading misinformation about me especially to people who I know personally, feel free to observe my comments on Facebook and twitter concerning Fantasy's launch to judge for yourself what was said.

Miss Saucy,
Don't take them on. As a bajan myself, I know how "passionate" some bajans can be about our island. It borders on ignorant sometimes but it in no way reflects the attitudes of most bajans. I hope that you still come to Crop Over and have a time!

Ommm...Isn't the Amazon in South America? Why would that be associated with an African theme?

My same sentiments carnival junky....it is clear that these people DID NOT do their research in order to design these costumes...the worst....and the launch was long and boring...
