I just finished the first season.  It might be the best season of tv I have ever seen, no joke.
Mconawhatever and Harrelson and the writer were top top quality.

The intro video and song choice are a standalone piece of art too.

Plenty tv series are better than movies these days.  The extra time allows them to add whatever depth the characters require.
Looking forward to the next season.

What about Track & Field / Gold medallist in court
« on: March 10, 2014, 09:24:31 PM »

 Akeem Marshall gold medallist in the boys under-20 5,000-metre race at last yearís Carifta Games, was granted $20,000 bail when he appeared in court yesterday charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.
Magistrate Ejenny Espinet granted the bail bond to 18-year-old Marshall in the Sangre Grande Magistratesí Court.
Marshall, who is seeking to defend his title at this yearís Games, was arrested on Saturday in Matelot, within 500 metres of Matelot Primary School.
 He was allegedly found with 34 grammes of marijuana in his possession.
Upon his appearance before the magistrate, Marshall pleaded not guilty to the offence.
In his application for bail, defence attorney Fareed Ali informed the magistrate that his client, a member of Toco Titans Sport Club, was the defending 5,000-metre gold medallist and submitted that if bail were to be denied, he would be deprived of the opportunity to properly prepare to defend the title.
Ali said Marshall needed to properly prepare for the Games if he is to successfully represent Trinidad and Tobago at the Games on Easter weekend next month.
After granting the bail bond, Espinet wished Marshall well in defending the title. She later adjourned the matter to April 1.

Charged for raping his 5 daughters. He fathered 6 kids with them.  Sick piece of shit.

Award-winning 'Killing me Softly' video director to spend 90 years behind bars for sex assault after siring 6 children with his own daughters

I wonder how often Trinis do this kinda thing.

Police say they are currently searching for a group of about 25 people from Haiti, Trinidad and Jamaica who came ashore in Golden Beach.

At this time, Golden Beach police said 6 adults and 2 children are in protective custody.

Air Rescue and the Miami-Dade Police Department Aviation Coast Guard are searching the water with their glare system over Intracoastal Waterway and the beach.

Miami police said one man was pulled out of Intracoastal Waterway and was taken to Aventura Hospital with a head injury. He is currently listed in critical condition.

Officials gave them water and are bringing them food.

Golden Beach Marine Patrol and the Coast Guard are still searching finger canals behind homes on water. The investigation has been turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol.

Real tief head.

A former member of the elite U.S. Navy SEALs has come out to say she's now a woman.

Kristin Beck, formerly Chris, served 20 years as a SEAL and fought on some of the most dangerous battlefields in the world, but after she left the service she realized she wasn't living the life she wanted.

"Chris really wanted to be a girl and felt that she was a girl and consolidated that identity very early on in childhood," said Anne Speckhard, co-author of Beck's biography "Warrior Princess," which was published over the weekend. Speckhard told ABC News Beck suppressed that secret for decades, however, through the trials of SEAL training and the harrowing missions that followed, growing a burly beard as she fought on the front lines of American special operations.

Brandon Webb, a former SEAL who served on a different SEAL team than Beck, said that Beck's reputation in the SEALs was a good one and said she was, by all appearances, the "consummate guy's guy."

But the book says that Chris "had considered living as the woman he felt himself to be for a very long time, but while he was serving as a SEAL he couldn't do it."

"For years Chris had turned off his sexuality like a light switch and lived as a warrior, consumed with the battle -- living basically asexual. For Chris the other SEALs were brothers and in the man's man warrior lifestyle, even if he had wanted to entertain sexual thoughts, there really was never any time to be thinking too much about sexuality," the book says.

After her retirement in 2011, however, "Now seemed the right time to go for it -- to make his body match his identity -- or at least start by dressing like a woman in his regular life."

Speckhard said Beck first announced her decision to friends online with the declaration "No more disguises" and the book describes her going out to gay bars in Florida as a woman.

Beck is currently on hormone therapy in preparation for sexual reassignment surgery and generally wears long hair, make-up and women's clothes, Speckhard said.

In the book's Preface, Beck said she wrote the book "to reach out to all of the younger generation and encourage you to live your life fully and to treat each other with compassion, be good to each other, especially in your own backyard (where it be high school or your community)."

'Dozens killed' in clashes at match in Egypt

More than 70 people are reported to have died in clashes after a football match in Egypt.

Hundreds of the winning team's fans poured onto the field after the match in Port Said ended.

A security official says they attacked players and fans of their opponents and one report suggested fans had gone to the stadium armed with knives.

It is feared the death toll will rise, it is being reported, as many people were injured.

The fans chased the players and cornered their supporters on the field and around the stadium, throwing stones and bottles at them, according to the security official.

Al-Masry won a rare 3-1 victory against Al-Ahly, Egypt's top team in the port city.

The two teams have a long history of bad blood, and clashes have erupted in recent years between their fans.

Thousands of supporters covered the field, according to a video posted online.

Egypt's health ministry said at least 40 were killed.

A medic at a morgue in Port Said, a city on the Mediterranean coast, said some of the dead were security officers.

The causes of the deaths were not immediately known.

The players were later taken to the dressing room for protection, Sayed Hamdi, a player, told state TV.

Soon after the violence, a match in the Cairo Stadium between the Al-Ismailiya and Zamalek was called off in mourning for the violence.

State TV showed video of sections of the Cairo stadium on fire.

The announcer said angry fans of the Zamalek protested the cancellation and set some sections of the stadium on fire.

Birchall, Hyland called up to T&T squad
By Ian Prescott (Express)

Story Updated: Aug 24, 2011 at 12:45 AM ECT

UNITED STATES-based Chris Birchall and Belgium-based midfielder Khaleem Hyland are among 11 foreign-based footballers called up by Trinidad and Tobago's German head coach Otto Pfister for back-to-back 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

T&T host Bermuda on September 2, before travelling to Barbados for another qualifier five days later.

The first of the foreign-based players will begin to arrive in Trinidad on Sunday.

Trinidad and Tobago will be captained by Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones. Also called up is England-born York City midfielder Andre Boucard, who has six caps for T&T and last played against Iceland just prior to the 2006 World Cup finals.

Joining the national team is another Englishman, 22-year-old Jake Thompson, who is now playing minor league football with Kettering Town.

Veteran utility player Carlos Edwards, defender Ronald Primus, Lester "Corn Curls" Peltier, Keon Daniel, Julius James and Clyde Leon make up the rest of the foreign-based professionals.

England-born defender JLloyd Samuel has asked to be excused for Trinidad and Tobago's first two matches as he is currently in the process of securing a new club.

Following his team's 3-0 win over India in a friendly on Sunday, head coach Pfister was confident of having a strong team to face Bermuda.

"Next week we have a player camp and we work together," Pfister said on Sunday. "I now know who of the local boys I can use and who I cannot use. Football is a very easy game. I will collect the overseas players and we make two, three, four training sessions and we are ready for the next game."

And striker Stern John thinks that Trinidad and Tobago will be better prepared for Bermuda, who scored a shock 2-1 road victory over the Soca Warriors to start the 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign. T&T advanced when winning the away leg 2-0 in Bermuda.

"I think the last time our team was not as strong as (the one) we have right now," said John. "We went into that game a bit over confident, a bit cocky, and we were defeated in Trinidad. We went to Bermuda and we had to grind out a result. And that is what football is about."


Kenwyne Jones (Captain), Carlos Edwards, Andre Boucard, Khaleem Hyland, Chris Birchall, Jake Thompson, Ronald Primus, Lester Peltier, Keon Daniel, Julius James, Clyde Leon.

Football / Roberto Carlos got a Veyron for his birthday

Birthday boy Roberto Carlos handed keys to Bugatti Veyron by Anzhi president

Anzhi Makhachkala full-back Roberto Carlos has received a Ä900,000 Bugatti Veyron for his 38th birthday from club president Suleiman Kerimov.

Moi Daghestan claims Kerimov, who in 2004 was linked with a Roma takeover, gave the Brazilian veteran the gift following celebrations in a Russian hotel.

Carlos is said to have asked for the Veyron, capable of a reaching 434.16 KMH, to be shipped to Brazil so he can have it at his Sao Paulo home.

Other Anzhi players will also get one if they win the Russian Premier League within the next four years, according to reports.

The Russian outfit are currently ninth in the standings with five points from four games in which Carlos has featured in following his move from Corinthians earlier this year.

Last month Carlo's was given a banana by a Zenit St Petersburg fan in a racial incident which saw the champions fined Ä7,400 by Russian authorities.

Football / Dead Colombian Fan Attends Game
« on: March 29, 2011, 08:05:27 AM »

Pals of a teenage soccer fanatic who was murdered in Colombia brought his body to see his favorite team play one last time.

The remains of Christopher Jacome, 17, were brought in a coffin to General Santander Stadium in the city of Cucuta for Sunday's match between Cucuta Deportivo and Envigado.

Jacome, who was a member of a local soccer fan club known for its hooliganism, was shot to death Saturday while playing soccer in a nearby park.

After his wake, pals from his soccer club decided to bring the coffin with the body inside to the stadium and parade the casket around the stands.

City officials were appalled when they later discovered the body was allowed in and are investigating how it happened.

The players were perturbed as well.

"We do not understand how he was let in," said Envigado midfielder Angle Jilmar. "We wondered if it was the fault of security."

Police say Jacome's death had nothing to do with soccer but stemmed from criminal activity around where he was playing.

Football / Breaking: Top Trinidadian Footballer Injured
« on: January 26, 2011, 01:13:58 PM »
AP -

A Trinidadian midfielder playing in the US was injured on Tuesday night while turning out for his local Miami team.  He was having another great game in this spring season, having created 2 goals and threatening to score with two shots on goal.  Sadly, about 30 minutes into the game he suffered a double ankle ligament sprain to his gifted right foot.  After beating his Jamaican opponent, the Jamaican desperately or perhaps maliciously stuck out a foot which caught Peong's trailing right foot.  His team "Yellow Bibs" were disheartened to lose such a creative midfielder, but vowed to fight on.  A Yellow Bibs spokesperson has confirmed that Peong will be out for 4-6 weeks.  Peong was reported to be resting and applying ice-packs.

Football / Manchester United Shirts Banned in Malaysia
« on: July 22, 2010, 02:00:51 PM »

Manchester United shirts have been banned in Malaysia after the red devil crest was labelled "dangerous and un-Islamic".

Banned Man Utd Shirts 'Promote The Devil'

Thousands of fans have reacted angrily to the decision by Muslim clerics - with some accusing them of supporting Premier League arch-rivals Liverpool.

Despite the Old Trafford side having an estimated 81 million followers in Asia, one senior cleric said: "You are only promoting the devil."

"This is very dangerous. As a Muslim we should not worship the symbols of other religions or the devils," another added.

"It will erode our belief in Islam. There is no reason why we as Muslims should wear such jerseys, either for sports or fashion reasons."

But fans are now fighting back, posting messages on Twitter and Facebook to show their disapproval.

"Maybe the religious leaders are just fans of Liverpool?" quipped one supporter on Twitter.

"Why has this become an issue after Manchester United has won the title for 11 times? They haven't been watching the matches all this while?" said fan Sharifah Shahidah.

"What am I gonna do with all my Man Utd jerseys? And my sons' jerseys?" said another.

"Should I cover the emblem with a picture of flower?"

Manchester United Fan Club Malaysia, which has about 7,000 members, refused to comment.

Also off-limits are the shirts of teams including Brazil, Portugal, Barcelona and Serbia, all of which carry an image of the Christian crucifix in their team emblems.

Malaysia is a generally moderate Islamic country, but conservative clerics have issued controversial edicts in the past, including a ban on the ancient practice of yoga, which is criticised for including Hindu elements.

This sounds extremely painful.
Horrible accident.

Here's a story that will make you wince in pain just thinking about it and shrug off any future minor splinters.  A futsal soccer player died in Brazil after a piece of the court's wooden floor pierced his abdomen.  It looked as if the 23-year old player was fully alert and well as he was being strapped to the gurney, but died  of hemorrhagic shock a day after the game.

Making a play on an oncoming forward, Robson Rocha Costa made a slide tackle near the goal line.  Apparently, a piece of the surface hit his thigh and went up into his intestines.  He was immediately rushed to the hospital where he had surgery to fix the problems, but he succumbed to the injuries a day later.

I never understood playing soccer in old gyms, and seeing this story makes me think back to all the times I ill-advisedly slid across a gym's surface to make a tackle.  This is a very unfortunate, and bizarre accident, that hopefully schools will use as an example to create awareness for grungy gyms and finding these soccer leagues actual fields or legitimate indoor stadiums with turf.  It's unfortunate a life had to be lost for this.   It conjures up bad memories of the luger at the Olympics whose death spurred more serious discussions regarding the safety of the luge courses.

I'm want to learn to play the guitar and I would welcome any advice on a decent guitar to buy, as well as tips for technique or anything else.
I have guitar lessons on DVD and youtube is full of tutorials.

I found a Yamaha CG111S for US$90 but I will have to change the strings if I buy it.
Is that a good deal?

Amazon also has guitars for under $100 e.g. a Takamine

Not sure what is the best bet.
Also I am assuming I should buy a tuner and a strap.

I am a beginner so will the quality matter right away?

Again, any comments are welcome.

Football / Scotland expects to retain spot
« on: September 28, 2009, 09:23:13 AM »,19528,11661_5589664,00.html

Latics striker would be disappointed to be axed

Jason Scotland expects to keep his place in Wigan Atlethic's starting XI following their historic weekend victory over Chelsea.

The Trinidad & Tobago international was given his first Premier League start and helped The Latics stun the former table-toppers 3-1.

Scotland has struggled to get up to speed in England's top flight following his summer switch, but was pleased with his weekend showing.

"This was my first start for the club and I'll be disappointed if I don't start the next one," explained the 30-year-old striker.

"To come into this was a massive situation for me and the team and it's arguably the best team performance I've been involved in."

However, Scotland could be disappointed for their upcoming game against Hull City with manager Roberto Martinez insisting it is a squad game.

"I always look at the whole squad, I never work with 11 players," said the Spaniard. "But I don't make the decisions, football makes the decisions.

"The players disappointed not to be in the starting XI have been working very hard behind the scenes and they have been making their point on the training ground.

"There are many options we have. Everyone is ready and in any game we shouldn't be too surprised at changes in the formation because we are going to be as good as the squad is and it is not about 11 players."
