Coca-Cola Around the World – Part 1

Coca-Cola is the universal word of planet Earth. It is even more universal than the words “no” or “WD40.” In fact Coca-Cola has proven to be more sought-after than WD40, duct tape or political power. If you land in a strange country where a different language is spoken and afraid of being detained because you lost your passport, just say Coca-Cola -not coke- and the chances are great the immigration officials will think you come in peace and are from this planet. Coca-Cola has become such an important part of the life of humans the first words of a child is usually “mama” and  “dada” closely followed by “Coke ” then “KFC.” There is nothing wrong with being attached to a commercial product even though it contains mainly sugar and water since to be commercial is to be human.

The Secret Murderers of Trinidad and Tobago

You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. There are no in-betweens. Unfortunately, we in Trinidad and Tobago have too many problems and apart from the obvious problem-people who run drugs, smuggle guns, traffic humans, and plunder the treasury, we have possibly thousands of the less obvious and even more dangerous ones. These less obvious ones are the selfish, ignorant, police-pampered idiots who drive like the highway is a race track installed and maintained for their recreational purposes. They are bullies who speed, tailgate, flash lights, swerve in and out, and seem smug behind the wheel of their built-to-kill cars and trucks. These people, for some reason, have not been able to internalize how driving like an idiot can, in a few seconds, easily destroy the lives of many innocent people just by their intentional thoughtlessness. These drivers – more like murderers – have destroyed, not only the lives of the ones they killed or maimed on the roads, but also the ones who were at home waiting forever for their loved ones to return.

Even as I type this some contractor is happily plundering our scarce dollars that were diverted from the pockets of public servants, to install barriers on the highway just so that a politician can gain fame and also so that the death toll and sadness due to idiot-driving will hopefully be reduced. Some say we need more police patrols on the highway but what we really need is less uncaring people in our country. Some might argue that it is possible to be a Satan on the roads but be a good and caring father, mother, brother, sister, friend etc. From my experience with speed demons, I have to say that their natural evil-mindset far outweigh their pretentious public display of compassion. An uncaring person is uncaring 24-7 and no amount of phony foreign accents, flowing local dialect, paper degrees, high or low society standing and police friends can make them anything but scum that is helping to run our society into the ground.

Super 8 on the Imax

Imax is coming to Trinidad and Tobago but more specifically, One Woodbrook Place, which is way over budget was built by The HCL Group of Companies, a member of the notorious CL Financial Group. Most Trinis who will be able to easily afford a ticket to see an Imax movie locally are those who have already experienced how good an Imax movie looks and feels in countries they have funneled scarce US dollars to buy a second or third house. They are probably the ones who are also quick to complain that there is a shortage of US dollars. The rest of us will have to start a lay away plan or win tickets on a radio show competition.

I predict notwithstanding the infamy and drain on the local econpomy of One Woodbrook Place, the Imax will do well once the economy does well and the economy will do ok once there is good gas, oil, methanol, ammonia and urea prices coupled with low or no wage increases for all public sector workers.

Naturally, the local Imax will be showing all the latest block buster special effects movies and one I hope to be seeing locally or even overseas is Super 8. It was written and directed by JJ Abrams and produced by Stephen Spielberg. That combination plus a fantastic trailer will ensure Super 8 sells out our local Imax despite high ticket and popcorn prices.


In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

Foreign-Used Car Buyer’s Guide – 2011 – Trinidad and Tobago

Don't let this happen to you

Since the recent disastrous 9.0 earthquake in Japan which triggered a Tsunami and then the Fukushima nuclear reactor disaster I am concerned about the effects these will have on Trinidad and Tobago. What I am more concerned about is the leaking radiation from the Fukushima power plant than the disruption in supply of Japanese made products as the world is worried where the Fukushima radiation will end up next. It may end up in cans of tuna or worse, foreign used cars in Trinidad and Tobago. This might sound like fear mongering but Trinidad and Tobago is a country where the unscrupulous is alive and well. It is a country where for years, I am told, the population was sold kangaroo meat and told it was goat. I am even more concerned when I think about the sleazy characters who sell foreign-used cars in this country. Don’t be surprised that you get up one night to see your brand new foreign-used Nissan or Toyota glowing in the dark like a working T&TEC streetlight.

giga counter from Amazon

With radiation on the mind of this blogger, I will recommend to readers they invest in a radiation detector from Amazon to take the guesswork away from the dealer. Radiation detectors might seem expensive but compared to the gene mutation that may make you a super zero instead of a super hero, it is more that worth the US$400 plus taxes.

Israel Kamakawiwoʻole – “Over the Rainbow” and “What a Wonderful World”

I haven’t had the time to blog recently being occupied with everything my brain can lay its neurons on, from downloading movies, books and music to learning the ins and outs of Lightroom 3x. From planning a vacation to liking my Pentax K-7 even more but unhappy with my Tamrac camera bag. With my mind all over the place, and some good places at that,  I stumbled on Israel Kamakawiwoʻole (aka Iz),whose medley of “Over the Rainbow” and “What a Wonderful World” I remembered from the movie Meet Joe Black, one of my favorites. Israel Kamakawiwoʻole was born in 1959 in Honolulu and became a famous musician and singer. Sadly, he died at a young age in 1997. The official Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole’s “What A Wonderful World” video on YouTube has so far received over 7.5 million plays but this blog is not allowed to embed that version. The popularity of this video is an indication of how good music can be timeless. This is one of my favorite songs and I am constantly on the lookout for songs which I feel and hope will live forever. Recently I discovered R.E.M‘s new Everyday is Yours to Win but only time will tell how long it will live.
