I am getting a early start on this one this year. Cause I OTNO. I will continue to update this list as the year progresses. So far I have listened to 227 songs from across the Caribbean but who knows what fat will rise to the top as the year progresses. You can also view last years favorites or news list.
Anyway without much adieu.
Lyrikal - Feting Victim (Conect Riddim) (Trinidad)
I do not like the rythme on this one and I cannot find the one I actually like so this version will have to do for now.
Lyrikal - Picture Perfect [Breaking Dawn Riddim]
Nappy writes the best songs and he seems to be back again this year with some hard hitting hits;
Farmer Nappy - Miss Me Wid Dat (W.I. Riddim)
Farmer Nappy & Destra Garcia - "Technically"
5 Star Akil - Go Go Dancer (Sun Blast Riddim)

The past week and a half of cleaning and fixing random stuff has been a welcomed release from the hustle and bustle of work. You would be surprised how calming it is to work in almost total silence at almost snails pace with no one around except for the call when dinner is ready. Having a double sink is really handy.
My beard has grown back in over the Christmas holiday and I have no way with which to shave it. I may have to go into town to get a fresh trim. I am getting a bit accustomed to not going outside at all or spending money. Even though haircuts are cheaper here (as far as I can remember) and there is less competition for the barbers chair.
I did manage to spend sometime on the computer while I am here. Chipped away at some code that I had been working on forever. Discovered that whatsapp groups are trash, full of idlers with no hobbies. I need to get on with these end of year posts before they pile up on me and I end up not doing any at all.

Its the end of another year and my savings are in a deficit. We are alive and well enough to continue to put pen to paper (or keyboard to computer) in this case. All the leaves are brown. I guess that is all that really matters in the end of a year. There are some lists that I need to make but I will likely wait until next year because having Christmas day on a Sunday creates weird holidays this time around the sun.
Half of my winter break will be spend meticulously and randomly cleaning my moms house. This would annoy most normal people so I prefer to do it alone where I can focus and think while the cold breeze blows and the community is so quiet I can hear the freshly cooked food moving through my stomach.
Maybe one day we will look back at this and say; "remember the time you disappeared for a year?". Some of us are just keep rolling, never gathering moss but we are too old now. Maybe it has reached the point where everything that you think you know about other people will be put to test. A lifetime of dreams and foolishness comes around in a full circle and we can finally sit back and watch our prophecies unravel before our eyes. I am my brother's keeper.
