This way for the teeth inspection...

What is this I hearing about people handpicking people to be in their section? But this is real assness! I’ve heard tell that a so called Prince of Sport of Pain had a carnival section in Island People mas that was filled only with his personally handpicked ladies. Huh!? And rumour is starting up that this is going to happen next carnival too. I miss carnival for one year and this is what happens?! I can’t leave allyuh alone for ONE YEAR?!!? Now, these rumours came up way back when Tribe started, but I didn’t put any stock in that because I knew people who don’t fall into the supposed ‘category’ who’ve played with them and had no problems. A friend of mine who goes WAY back told me Poison – who soon gained a reputation for letting ANYBODY and ANYTHING into the band, even old tief and hooligan – also had their tactics for keeping the band looking ‘right’ by not offering bras and costumes beyond a certain size. But this is worse. What is this, slavery days? What next – are we going to have people inspect our teeth and squeeze our breasts before we get to register? This is Carnival people, a festival that we boast of as being the great equalizer. We’ve moved past the days when the fair skinned and the rich played mas on the backs of trucks while the dark skinned plebeians chipped in their wake. I am very disappointed in us if this rumour is true. Can anyone confirm this for me? I’d greatly appreciate it.

First of all, I would like to apply for the position of breast-squeezer. Oh please let it be me. lol.

But really, like everything else, Mas is being divided by class. I heard one masmaker defend the size restriction thing by saying that they could only get the bras in a certain size. Right. If they really wanted to, they could find bras in all different sizes.

So it doesn't surprise me one bit to hear that.

Carnival used to be the great equalizer, but the great ones no longer want to equalize.

Well i thought it was rumors when it was said Tribe caters to the young, but know i hear you say that about IP yall right about what happen to Carnival. Manicou which band you playing with just in case we bounce heads :} Hottie keep keeping us informed.

Hottie Hottie said...

I hear Manicou meat sweet you know? Dais true? Fiestyspirit, I guess most bands have a preference as to whom they want playing with them. I guess they imagine it will make their costumes look better. The thing is, if they make costumes of good quality that are beautiful, the band - and the masqueraders - can't help but look good.

Mani said...

Nah gyul, not me and mas nah, to tell you the truth. I respect people who can do it, but I don't think I am up to it.

But yeah, this Manicou meat real sweet, lol.

Hottie Hottie said...

Pity I doh eat meat... ;)
