Watchin The Clouds In Barbados

I’ve just finished producing a video to promote my latest set of sounds and wanted to share it with the local community. It’s titled “Watchin The Clouds” and features many scenic shots from around the island . Cloud watching can be a lot of fun here in Barbados since the sky is never the same on any given day. Barbados is one of those places that many artists and photographers are attracted to for that very reason. As I have found out, It’s a great place to be creative. Enjoy!

Barbados South Coast Beaches – A Stop At Long Beach

Since I’ve taken a break from programming sounds these past couple of months, I’ve been using my camera a lot more. The pictures of the surfers at Silver Sands beach came out better then I expected considering I’m using a relatively simple digital camera. So I thought I would continue the “Barbados Beaches” theme with some pictures of another beach in my neighborhood – Long Beach. CLICK HERE to view them. Use the “slideshow” option at the bottom of the page to view in full screen size.

Long Beach is about a two mile stretch of white sand that sits between the back of the airport and Inch Marlow point. It’s one of the longest stretches of beaches in Barbados. This area of the island is still mostly undeveloped and since Long Beach is not the best spot for swimming due to the strong currents – most of the time it’s empty. That usually changes during the peak surfing months when Long Beach comes alive with wind and kite surfers who want to avoid the crowds and need plenty of room to stretch out and surf. Even during the peak season, Long Beach remains relatively quiet – as you can see from the pictures. It’s also a great place to get some exercise or just get away from the computer screen for a couple of hours! 

Yeah, I think I will continue the “Barbados South Coast Beaches” theme over the next few weeks with some stops over at Miami, Worthing and Dover Beaches. Some of my favorite spots!

Rihanna Super Bowl Bash Sweepstakes

As everyone back home in Barbados knows – Rihanna is everywhere. We are all very proud of her success and wish her the best. I just wish that whoever is handling her wardrobe would have told her to put on some clothes for her presidential inauguration gig the other night. As we musicians know, there are many different kinds of gigs – some require more clothes then others!

Anyway, Rihanna’s latest venture with the Def Jam money making machine has got her as part of the “Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Bash Sweepstakes”, where when you join Rihanna’s Fan Club you get a chance to win an autographed NFL Superbowl Jersey and official Football. What will they think of next?

I don’t quite know if I like this idea or not. It’s seems like just another commercial exploitation. However, since I’m a big American football and Rihanna fan – well it no longer seems like such a bad idea! I wonder how much they make off something like that – and how much she receives? Bottom line is that this wave of success of Rihanna is on is surely going to come to and end one of these days and I hope that she come out of it OK. 

Watch out girl – the sharks are everywhere.
