Football / Re: Trinis in Action (June 10-12, 2011)
« on: June 11, 2011, 08:50:18 PM »
Birchall!!! 3rd min!  ;D

wtf?! i would have thrown sergio ramos under the bus after it

assuming that they did get warner's votes and got into the 2nd round of voting wouldnt the odds have still been highly against them? russia almost had it in the bag by the time they got into the 3rd round. england needs to realise that they didnt try hard enough or tried too hard in the wrong ways. they should have focused less on getting 1 man's vote and put more effort into convincing others.

4
Now Trinis go have to get Visa to visit the UK  :beermug:

I actually embrace that idea,it should be like that all over the world,we need ah visa to go england they need ah visa to come trini. Simple no problem!!!   

uhh... i thought we needed visas to go to the UK :-\  didnt they make it a requirement a few yrs ago or im confusing them w/ another country?

5
As much as i hate warner, the english media should STFU! bobby mcmahon on fox soccer report put it well 2nite. the other bidders are moving on while england r throwing tantrums and blaming fifa (possibly rightly so) for everything and calling for reform. if england's bid won they wouldnt have said sh*t and would have tried to put the ill-timing of their media as far behind them as possible. also this stupidness abt "our presentation was the best" is so subjective and means nothing. even if fifa was a clean organisation ur dealing w/ individuals who have their own unique ways of weighting the options. personally im cool w/ the WC being somewhere new and interesting and in places that actually need it rather than a country that just wants it.

6
did anyone else notice the t&t flag in qatar's presentation (the 3rd stadium)? it would be cool if we qualify for that WC. the temp might work to our advantage a little if we work at it.

steups... its real bothering me how much ppl r bitching all over about russia and qatar hosting the WCs. they have a good several yrs to prepare especially qatar and ppl shouldnt underestimate them too far b4 the fact. for all u know we may get the best WCs from both. i dont understand why so many ppl wanted 2022 in soccer hating USA. i rather a new country than 1 that held it relatively recently. i was kind of hoping for australia but we have to live with for now.

Having a really nice game.
U really thought so ? bet he don't(think so), niether Arena ! He didn't have a bad game either...hardly had a touch of the ball as the flow was mostly to the middle-right, Beckham Juninho, then Donovan , buddle, Chivas came up left, knock it round Birchie, and LA went back as before...till he eventually subbed, it was obvious the tank was hovering round E, but Chivas was well putting it to them in 3/4 of the field, doh the LA back 4 was solid....was hoping to get a look at Marshall there, but ah coulda see why, that 4 was relatively solid....ah think Becks make more tackle than Birchall, but is not his fault the way the game flowed....still ah think he need more games.

beckham was playing CM while Birchall was at RM. you really expected him to get in more tackles from that position when the play was going through the middle? i dont know what game you were really watching. the LA fans have been applauding his performance

he has not featured in the past couple games b/c kovalenko was in form. dema scored in the 1st game they rested birchall so why take him back out of the lineup immediately? he played sh!t during the weekend so chances are birchall would be back on the field against chivas usa. if not then something is wrong with bruce because chris has been playing well this season... did u just look for these stats or do u actually watch LA's games and keep up with the team's news?

Football / Re: Thread for the T&T vs Belize Game (10-Sept-2010).
« on: September 11, 2010, 12:06:23 PM »
Well, so far we have that one guy's unconfirmed reports of a 0-0 draw, where he doesn't mention where he got the info from.  I've also just had some unconfirmed news (from Belize) that the match might be playing today instead.

I asked the following question on a Belize forum

"Hey guys, anyone in Belize that can give any information about the football match yesterday? Belize were playing Trinidad & Tobago in Belmopan, and it seems that the result of the match is a secret!"

Reply from a Belizean:

"Maybe because it's today?"
(then he went offline)

this is something which can be easily resolved by giving the relevant evidencing documentation to the media. whoever is the correct individual should just support his claims and leave it at that.

Entertainment & Culture Discussion / ... now Dennis Hopper
« on: May 29, 2010, 08:30:47 PM »
hopefully this isnt another period like last year when celebrities were just kicking the bucket like its a new style  :-\

Dennis Hopper, creator of hit 'Easy Rider,' dies (AP)Source: AP Sat May 29, 2010, 2:21 pm EDT           


LOS ANGELES - Dennis Hopper, the high-flying Hollywood wild man whose memorable and erratic career included an early turn in "Rebel Without a Cause," an improbable smash with "Easy Rider" and a classic character role in "Blue Velvet," has died. He was 74.

Hopper died Saturday at his home in the Los Angeles beach community of Venice, surrounded by family and friends, family friend Alex Hitz said. Hopper's manager announced in October 2009 that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The success of "Easy Rider," and the spectacular failure of his next film, "The Last Movie," fit the pattern for the talented but sometimes uncontrollable actor-director, who also had parts in such favorites as "Apocalypse Now" and "Hoosiers." He was a two-time Academy Award nominee, and in March 2010, was honored with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame .

After a promising start that included roles in two James Dean films, Hopper's acting career had languished as he developed a reputation for throwing tantrums and abusing alcohol and drugs. On the set of "True Grit," Hopper so angered John Wayne that the star reportedly chased Hopper with a loaded gun.

He married five times and led a dramatic life right to the end. In January 2010, Hopper filed to end his 14-year marriage to Victoria Hopper, who stated in court filings that the actor was seeking to cut her out of her inheritance, a claim Hopper denied.

"Much of Hollywood," wrote critic-historian David Thomson, "found Hopper a pain in the neck."

All was forgiven, at least for a moment, when he collaborated with another struggling actor, Peter Fonda, on a script about two pot-smoking, drug-dealing hippies on a motorcycle trip through the Southwest and South to take in the New Orleans Mardi Gras.

On the way, Hopper and Fonda befriend a drunken young lawyer ( Jack Nicholson , whom Hopper had resisted casting, in a breakout role), but arouse the enmity of Southern rednecks and are murdered before they can return home.

"'Easy Rider' was never a motorcycle movie to me," Hopper said in 2009. "A lot of it was about politically what was going on in the country."

Fonda produced "Easy Rider" and Hopper directed it for a meager $380,000. It went on to gross $40 million worldwide, a substantial sum for its time. The film caught on despite tension between Hopper and Fonda and between Hopper and the original choice for Nicholson's part, Rip Torn , who quit after a bitter argument with the director.

The film was a hit at Cannes, netted a best-screenplay Oscar nomination for Hopper, Fonda and Terry Southern, and has since been listed on the American Film Institute's ranking of the top 100 American films. The establishment gave official blessing in 1998 when "Easy Rider" was included in the United States National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Its success prompted studio heads to schedule a new kind of movie: low cost, with inventive photography and themes about a young, restive baby boom generation. With Hopper hailed as a brilliant filmmaker, Universal Pictures lavished $850,000 on his next project, "The Last Movie."

The title was prescient. Hopper took a large cast and crew to a village in Peru to film the tale of a Peruvian tribe corrupted by a movie company. Trouble on the set developed almost immediately, as Peruvian authorities pestered the company, drug-induced orgies were reported and Hopper seemed out of control.

When he finally completed filming, he retired to his home in Taos, N.M., to piece together the film, a process that took almost a year, in part because he was using psychedelic drugs for editing inspiration.

When it was released, "The Last Movie" was such a crashing failure that it made Hopper unwanted in Hollywood for a decade. At the same time, his drug and alcohol use was increasing to the point where he was said to be consuming as much as a gallon of rum a day.

Shunned by the Hollywood studios, he found work in European films that were rarely seen in the United States. But, again, he made a remarkable comeback, starting with a memorable performance as a drugged-out journalist in Francis Ford Coppola 's 1979 Vietnam War epic, "Apocalypse Now," a spectacularly long and troubled film to shoot. Hopper was drugged-out off camera, too, and his rambling chatter was worked into the final cut.

He went on to appear in several films in the early 1980s, including the well regarded "Rumblefish" and "The Osterman Weekend," as well as the campy "My Science Project" and " The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2."

But alcohol and drugs continued to interfere with his work. Treatment at a detox clinic helped him stop drinking but he still used cocaine, and at one point he became so hallucinatory that he was committed to the psychiatric ward of a Los Angeles hospital.

Upon his release, Hopper joined Alcoholics Anonymous , quit drugs and launched yet another comeback. It began in 1986 when he played an alcoholic ex-basketball star in "Hoosiers," which brought him an Oscar nomination for best supporting actor.

His role as a wild druggie in "Blue Velvet," also in 1986, won him more acclaim, and years later the character wound up No. 36 on the AFI's list of top 50 movie villains.

He returned to directing, with " Colors ," "The Hot Spot" and "Chasers."

From that point on, Hopper maintained a frantic work pace, appearing in many forgettable movies and a few memorable ones, including the 1994 hit " Speed ," in which he played the maniacal plotter of a freeway disaster. In the 2000s, he was featured in the television series " Crash " and such films as " Elegy " and " Hell Ride ."

"Work is fun to me," he told a reporter in 1991. "All those years of being an actor and a director and not being able to get a job two weeks is too long to not know what my next job will be."

For years he lived in Los Angeles' bohemian beach community of Venice, in a house designed by acclaimed architect Frank Gehry.

In later years he picked up some income by becoming a pitchman for Ameriprise Financial, aiming ads at baby boomers looking ahead to retirement. His politics, like much of his life, were unpredictable. The old rebel contributed money to the Republican Party in recent years, but also voted for Democrat Barack Obama in 2008.

Dennis Lee Hopper was born in 1936, in Dodge City, Kan., and spent much of his youth on the nearby farm of his grandparents. He saw his first movie at 5 and became enthralled.

After moving to San Diego with his family, he played Shakespeare at the Old Globe Theater.

Scouted by the studios, Hopper was under contract to Columbia until he insulted the boss, Harry Cohn. From there he went to Warner Bros., where he made "Rebel Without a Cause" and "Giant" while in his late teens.

Later, he moved to New York to study at the Actors Studio, where Dean had learned his craft.

Hopper's first wife was Brooke Hayward, the daughter of actress Margaret Sullavan and agent Leland Hayward, and author of the best-selling memoir "Haywire." They had a daughter, Marin, before Hopper's drug-induced violence led to divorce after eight years.

His second marriage, to singer-actress Michelle Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas, lasted only eight days.

A union with actress Daria Halprin also ended in divorce after they had a daughter, Ruthana. Hopper and his fourth wife, dancer Katherine LaNasa , had a son, Henry, before divorcing.

He married his fifth wife, Victoria Duffy, who was 32 years his junior, in 1996, and they had a daughter, Galen Grier.

From what he says he seems to have the best intentions for the country
His heart is in the right place
Is the "Status Quo" he will have to convince to bring about change
I wish him well

uhh. with all respect to dr. rowley, he did say that himself as well as others knew about the alleged corruption on UDECOTT since 2002. that's quite some time to be holding a secret from the public. he kept his mouth shut in the public domain up to the time he was relieved of his post. what would have happened if he was never fired? i would really like it if beckles decides to run for political leader. even thought rowley burst the government's files i havent gained much respect for him due to the circumstances in which he did it.
