You could see this photo opportunity coming from a mile off. No one can resist falling into a cliche. Pretty soon it becomes everything you see.

Food and Eats » Pizza for Dinner

Under normal circumstances I would not have gone to a restuarant and ordered a small pizza for dinner. But I was on vacation and you only live once. You should make it count. I did not enjoy it though, I think I am out-growing cheese in general. Too much of one thing is never good.

Logbook » Hideaway

written by owen, 3 days ago

There are a few things I hold dear. The things I love and the people I am passionate about. You only have so many hours in the day. Only so many hours to do the same thing you did the day before. Do something you love everyday, because everyday is a new day. You only have your self to blame. When it all comes together it doesn't really matter how high you climb or where you stand but who is holding the ladder when you fall. Now is the winter of our discontent.

I am not sure if this is a constant in other countries but whenever you need to do businesses in a government office you are guaranteed to waste a lot of time. You can tell instantly if the receptionist enters your name in a excel spreadsheet or god forbid a physical book of some kind. You will know right away if you see a large crowd. If there is no crowd then you are certainly doomed.   An empty lobby in any other circumstance would idea but not this lobby - this lobby is a black hole. A friday night going nowhere.‎

You can only live one life at a time. Might as well make the most of it. Being in two places at the same time is against the laws of physics. Every need got an ego to feed. The grass is always seem greener over the hillside and might be.   Everyday is a blessing. Every day is choice. You can make your choices, but you can't live two lives at one time. Physics and such. Be true to yourself and others. No regrets.

Movies » Destiny movie review (Jamaican film)

written by owen, 5 days ago

‎I decided to check out Destiny staring Christopher Martin and Karian Sang on the movie's Wednesday premier showing.   I had only heard about the movie last week on twitter.  I went early because I knew for certain that Carib5 would be bursting at the seams with Jamaicans rushing out to support a local film. Lol. To no surprise there were about 10 people in the theatre.‎

I arrived early to suffer through advertisements and standing while the national anthem played instrumental ( why is there no lyrics? ). 

Right off the bat the movie suffers from overuse of random popular music, and too many jump cuts in the dialog sequences.  Lots of Stereotypical Jamaican clichés. Stealth advertisements. Over acting and under acting.   Pointless side plots.

It's a nice little movie with a few laughs scattered between guest cameos.‎ For all those people asking for Jamaican movies not filled with shottas then yall should go out and watch this. 7 out of 10.  Not great, but ehh, it can watch.
