Beyonce Concert In Trinidad

The eagerly waited Beyonce I Am... Sasha Fierce concert is on and popping in Port-of-Spain as I type.

I've been following it on twitter and checking out the tweetphotos being uploaded, like this one of the stage on the Savannah.

Machel Montano HD has just started his one hour performance, then Beyonce will be on at 7 p.m. for a 2 hour session.

I've seen some of her performances on cable and online, and that chica is fierce fuh trute, so I know the audience is in for a treat...lucky buggers.

All the photos above are courtesy of iSupportSwift down in T&T, and you can follow the action here.

Hear ya later!

Final Five Valentine's Videos

Here's the final five of 20 of my fave 'swexy' Valentine's songs. I hope you've enjoyed all of them, and I've certainly enjoyed being your DJ this week.

Have a Happy Valentine's Day, y'all!

Valentine's videos continued

Hey, peoples. Yesterday work and connectivity issues got in the way of me posting some more 'swexy' videos, so I have a double dose for you today. Before I go any further I want to hail up my followers and especially welcome the newest follower Christy B. I hope you keep enjoying the site, Christy B. and company.

Okay, okay, let's go. Let's get this party started with the babymaker song, as some call it, "Turn Off The Lights" by the late, great Teddy Pendergrass.

More a bit later...

More tomorrow...

Fave 'swexy' Valentine's Songs

Hey, peoples. This is the week most people either love or hate, the week leading up to Valentine's Day on February 14. We all get bombarded by lovey-dovey tunes on the radio; every restaurant in the island is offering some lunch or dinner special and everywhere you look red and white is on display.

Anyhoo, Cheese-on-Bread can't be left out of this love fest, so I decided that between now and Friday, I'd bring you 20 (in random order) of my fave 'swexy' Valentine's songs. 'Swexy' songs are those (in my opinion, anyway) with lyrics that just put you in the mood for love. Wherever possible I'll put up a video of the artist performing the song, or just the audio.


Cry To Me - Solomon Burke (Dirty Dancing)

Feeling the heat yet? I'll turn it up a notch tomorrow, haha.

BMA Red Carpet Couples

I know some couples like to wear matching outfits, but anything can be overdone....

One false move and this guy could lose an eye....

Bajan soca queen Allison Hinds was showing it all off, and hubby Edward looks like he's protecting the other men from getting too close.

I'm not quite sure who's escorting whom on the red carpet.... Interesting metallic bubble dress, though.

One-time frontman of the big band Square One, Anderson Armstrong, looks like he's channelling a circus ringmaster with this getup.

Ms. Barbados World and co-host of the BMAs Leah Marville glows in this sequined gown, which accentuates her teeny tiny figure. Her co-host, model guy whose name I can't remember, sorry, cuts a dashing figure in his tailored suit.

Well, at least, they're colour-coordinated....

It takes a brave man to wear lilac, and I'm convinced that honey-voiced crooner John King did it for love, to coordinate with his date. Or is that his daughter? Me confused....

I'm not sure if these two are together, but individually they look pretty good.

Dang, that's one hot mama. Her son/brother looks pretty mortified though....

The man: love the jacket, hate everything else. The woman: love the hair, the dress, adore the shoes. The eye makeup, however, has to go.

This was one of my favourite couples of the night. They're not coordinated, but they look so cute together. The gown is bold and really makes a statement and the guy looks like he made an effort for the evening. Good job.

BMA Red Carpet - The men

Peoples, I know this is a bit stale now but a promise is a promise. Here are the remaining red carpet photos from last month's Barbados Music Awards. This time around, the men and the couples. All photos are the property of

Under all that hair, that's cutie singer Kirk Brown from the band Strategy. I'm not too much in love with his outfit, but his friend looks good. Kinda Tyrese-ish....

Soca maestro Edwin Yearwood of Krosfyah fame and up-and-comer Jaico make a splash on the red carpet.

Who let this poor, unfortunate soul loose on the red carpet? He looks so lost I don't have the heart to say anything bad....

I don't have enough time to itemise all the things wrong with this getup. All I can say is that it gives new meaning to the phrase matching from head to toe....

World Champion hurdler Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite and his father Eugene heat up the red carpet. The Ambassador would have looked even hotter in more formal attire though...

Later, the couples....

Memories of Rex Nettleford

One of the shining lights of Caribbean academia has been extinguished with the passing of Vice-Chancellor Emeritus of the University of the West Indies, Professor Ralston Milton 'Rex' Nettleford, on Tuesday.

I had the privilege of being taught History, Politics and Culture of the West Indies by Prof Nettleford at the Mona Campus back in the late 90's, and what an experience that was. I can see him now, perched on the edge of the lecturer's table or pacing gracefully across the class room, stopping now and then to punctuate a point with a nod or a wink. The man could lecture off the top of his head for two hours, without referring to notes.

He influenced myself and thousands of other students over the years to question and research and learn more about the history of our region and for that I will be eternally grateful. Rest well, Prof., you will be missed.
