This is the new one from PSY, ‘GENTELEMAN’

The point is not if it’s good but if it’s good enough to plaster PSY into the South Korean and  World Hall of Musical Fame. I think ‘GENTLEMAN’ is nearly as deep a song lyrically as ‘GANGAM STYLE’ and I hope the world will also find  the new PSY song as moving. For those who do not remember of tried to forget ‘GANGAM STYLE’ was the song that caused nearly everybody, especially North Koreans, to admit that the world is not as serious as it looks.

The video and song is extremely addictive and is being performed by Walk off the Earth which is a Canadian indie band formed in 2006 in Burlington, Ontario. Five people (including one bearded guy), three main voices, one steel-string guitar and tonnes of talent gave rise to this viral video.

The name of the song is Somebody That I Used to Know which was originally sung by Gotye – Wouter “Wally” De Backer (born 21 May 1980), also known professionally by his stage name Gotye (pronounced /ˈɡɒti.eɪ/ GOT-tee-ay) is a Belgian-Australianmulti-instrumental musician and singer-songwriter. The name “Gotye” is derived from “Gaultier” (or “Gautier” or “Gauthier”,) the French equivalent of “Wouter” (“Walter” in English.) Gotye’s voice has been compared to Sting and Peter Gabriel, some fans even going to the extent of mixing Gotye’s vocals with tracks by The Police – Wikipedia

As amazing as the Walk Off The Earth video is, Gotye steals the show every time. The song is made nearly perfect with the help of Kimbra - Kimbra Johnson (born 27 March 1990), known mononymously as Kimbra, is a New Zealand singer/songwriter from Hamilton, New Zealand. She is currently based in Melbourne, Australia.

“Somebody That I Used To Know”
(feat. Kimbra)

[Gotye:]
Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can be addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

[Kimbra:]
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
But I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

[Gotye:]
But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
And you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

A good friend sent me this Youtube link some days ago and I love it. Naturally, like all good promotional videos, it stresses only on the good and marketable. So with this being the time of year when Trinidad and Tobago can be sold the easiest to both the homesick locals and  and the foreigner, Come to Trinidad and Tobago videos are making the rounds for free. Except for too much pepper in some doubles and straying down some no-no streets alone at night, Trinidad and Tobago will present no exceptional challenges to the average tourist on an average tour.

Pastor Stewart is one of the funniest bits of local or even foreign humor in my opinion. With over 1.5 million views on Youtube, I am not alone. So while we wait for the Partnership to move mountains or even tiny molehills to make people happy, the diversification started without much fanfare from the powers that be - I Am Santana – The Movie – now showing at a T&T IMAX Near You

Sandro del Prete's "Cat at the Window"

Can you see the Felius Catus aka the house cat, domestic cat, or just plain cat at the window? I am sure you can. If you didn’t then you are not alone and that is the style of the famous Swiss artist Sandor del Prete. Abraham Tamir is quoted in Wikipedia as saying Sandor del Prete ‘materializes the well-known psychological effect, of the difference between ‘looking’ (usually the first glace of an observer) and ‘seeing’ (when things are appreciated more thoroughly in the mind). The Cat at the Window is one of my favorite artworks or optical illusions of del Prete as it took me some considerable time to get past the bushy plant on the top shelf, the stockings hung out to dry like a used man, and even the well shaped glass of sippable wine on the window ledge. Once you overcome these physiological blocks you too will see the cat.

I am sure you are familiar with the work of  Sandor del Prete and you can see more at his website – sandrodelprete.com
