Quite a lot to stomach

Posted in By Kevin Ramcharan 0 comments

So, it's been a few months, and finally I am back... please hold the applause!

There are many things which I have wanted to write about, but since it involved writing (well, typing) and I am incredibly lazy, they just didn't happen.  You may be wondering then, how I managed to write something today.

The trick is that I am not.  I am posting something someone else wrote.  Full scale.  They have specifically asked that I do not accredit them, so I won't.

A brief history (for those of you who are either not Trinidadian, or living under a rock).  Mrs Reema Carmona is the wife of the current President of Trinidad and Tobago, Anthony Carmona.  She has always had a... unique... sense of style, which has opened her up to criticism comments from the general public.

Well, here we are, 2013 is behind us (thank goodness) and 2014 is before us. Let us all resolve to make 2014 a better year, improving and building on what happened in 2013.

When Journalists Get it Wrong or How Not to Write an Article

Posted in By Kevin Ramcharan 0 comments


There I was minding my own business on Sunday, reading the Sunday Guardian (this is what I do) when I happened across an article by one Vishnu Bisram concerning the story about the St Joseph constituency, and the decision of Mr Volney not to contest the ruling of the Speaker that he had resigned from the UNC, the party on whose ticket he won the seat.  From what I could gather, Mr Bisram is a  columnist with the Guardian, who writes, well columns, from time to time.  He also shares the same name with the head of NACTA, which leads me to believe that they are one and the same person.

Hello again

Hello everybody! It's been nearly a year since I last posted, so I thought I'd ramble on something random.

So, really, just saying hello, don't know when I'll do a serious post again... hopefully soon.

I've downloaded the iPad app for blogger. Does this mean I'll post more? Probably not. But there you go. We can always hope.

Perhaps I am too sensitive

Posted in By Kevin Ramcharan 2 comments


So, today I got real vex because of a twitter discussion I was having with a number of people.  The person who actually got me vex doesn’t seem to understand why I am vex, saying that I am “toting”.  Now, this is a person whose opinion I respect, so I don’t dismiss her opinion out of hand.  SO for the 6 of you who read this thing, am I being sensitive.

Blogging from my iPod.

Ok. I am back, checking out blogger on the iPod. Maybe this means I'll be more regular. Sadly I don't think so.

Catch you later.

Congrats Anya

For those of you living under a rock, you may not be aware that last night was the finale of Project Runway, a show in which prior to this season I had no interest in watching, on a network (Lifetime) that I had, until this season in Project Runway, no interest in watching, and which from today, I have no interest in watching.


Why then was I suddenly interested… not just interested, obsessed, in a show which hitherto I did not really know existed, on a network whose main function was lying midway between USA and ESPN?

Sex, Crime and Videotape

Posted in By Kevin Ramcharan 3 comments


This morning, I woke up to my Facebook page littered with references to 2 posts about the popular show Crimewatch.  I am fairly sure that all of you know about Crimewatch, so I won’t get into it here.
The first post was by a blogger known as Women Speak, and her eloquent piece can be found here.  The second was a note on Facebook, by a young lady who was clearly deeply affected by what she saw on the programme.  It drove her to this impassioned statement.  This of course made me very curious about what had taken place, so I turned to my usual source of info (twitter) and asked my followers if anyone had seen the relevant programme.  Some of them did, and I gleaned the facts from them.  These facts are presented below.
