Sony PS3 network down

Everyday after work I come home, wash some wares, make something to eat, pace up my balcony (and back) - all in a vain to fill the gaping boredom hole and now entertain life without my PS3. Sometimes, I reach for the little black controller neatly placed on the left side of my couch, hit the PS button and just hope that the PS3 network is back up (even though I know it's not). Sad.

Mayaro Beach Sunrise

The room spins, the light shines
Drums resonate, my brain flat lines.

Beat beat, my heart's at peace
Any slower and I'll be deceased

Relaxation alike, like no other,
I don't care, I dont bother.

Time goes by, but I've stayed in.
Now here comes this retarded grin

Something mystical, blowing in the air
Holding a conscieneness, holding a stare

Sometimes I open my eyes but I just cant see
Only because people surround with their negativity

I tip my hat to all that'll agree
That you can live your life and live and let be

Strip away the ego and reveal yourself

Mayaro Beach

Mayaro Beach still remains one of my favourite spots in Trinidad and Tobago. Looking along the shorelines in any direction, you will see miles of sea meeting sand. Whether you are there for high tide or low tide, Mayaro never disappoints in giving you the most picturesque memory to cherish.

I look to the Universe...it's one of the most un-discovered places by man. We know little about it, can't see much of it, don't know how big it is or if we are alone. When scientist try to explain the vastness of the Universe, they typically use Earth-like examples so that the human mind can appreciate its magnitude. Peep this...

Example 1

Main Stage

A few days ago, the Trinidad Guardian's Main Stage was launched.

Without a doubt, the website runs on the very powerful cutting edge content management system, Drupal 6.

The design was done in-house at The Guardian (provided as a template) and some features used are the jQuery powered photo galleries.

A gallery is considered a "node" which can contain multiple images, all of which are seamlessly uploaded through the web interface of the same website.

Asteroid Impact

All living species go through evolution.

Before the Chicxulub crater impact, there were no humans. After the impact humans walked the earth millions of years afterwards....a geological blink of the eye.

I think all species live for a while, then some massive extinction occurs by a natural phenomena. Consequently, (through evolution) a new species is derived.

Humans have been walking the Earth for thousands of years. Thousands of years is negligible when compared to the age of the universe.

KC Diana dinner mints
Dinner mints are small mint flavoured sweets usually served at the end of meals...usually. Today in Trinidad, dinner mints are used for much more than sucking. Its:

  • served with your bill at restaurants
  • for sale in some offices
  • used to lure tips at bars
  • used to somehow apply the love writings to your life
  • used during insulting someone for bad breath

In no particular order:
