Padrino Returns to the Bahamas to Launch New Album - Jun 22, 2015 - 10:46:57 PM

smScreenshot_2015-06-22-09-13-28-1.jpg
Padrino is a raconteur. He is a journalist's dream. He pours out his life's stories with little beckoning. And one cannot help but get taken by the enthralling stories of his journey from the streets, to the studios of Grammy Award winning producers. That, coupled with his commanding baritone that will likely become the signature of Padrino music, demand an attentive ear.

His demeanor as he sat awaiting his grouper burger in one of Nassau's best known dives was in stark contrast to his social media mannerisms. This day there was jollity and a brevity in his stories about home, friends and the road to the launch of his record...

On June 13th, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga brought their “Cheek to Cheek” Concert Tour to the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island as a part of the resort's Atlantis Live series. While most enjoyed the concert, some comments were made on social media from locals voicing disappointment.

"Lady Gaga could not stop gushing about how BEAUTIFUL this country is. GOD BLESS THE BAHAMAS!" said one concert goer.

It didn't take long for Lady Gaga's social media pages to start displaying photos of Gaga at the beach or on the ocean...

Bahamian song urges an end to street harassment - May 22, 2015 - 10:16:41 AM

S-Cat-Calling.jpg
Mr. J teams up with Canadian born singer, Sydney Bernknopf to present his new single, No Cat Calling. The duo delivers a message advocating on behalf of women worldwide, calling for an end of street harassment.

The song echos the emotions of fear, discomfort and annoyance that women feel when cat called, prompting for full walls of defense to be erected. Accompanied with a sense of aggression from cat callers, women feel that what seems to be fun and OK to a man, could quickly escalate into something more serious than just a man screaming out at them for their attention. Mr. J urges guilty parties worldwide to develop a sense of respect and humanity, to treat women as human beings and not a piece of meat to be sampled and handled in whatsoever manner.

Cannes: From the Inside-Out - May 21, 2015 - 6:33:00 AM

Cannes-4-sm.jpg
Cannes, France - Collaboration. Communication. The idea of operating as one unit has been a core theme in these essays from Cannes. Such a theme made watching Pixar’s new film Inside Out the most memorable experience I’ve had at the festival. Disney’s Pixar Studios is a studio consisting of several computer animation filmmakers. They’re famously collaborative, all operating as one unit. John Lassater, who’s been called as its “Creative Officer”, heads the studio. Mr. Lassater directed Toy Story, the first film unveiled from Pixar in 1995. Since then there have been two more Toy Story films (making it one of the best trilogies in the history of cinema) produced over a ten-year period and in between several classic titles from Pixar. These titles include Ratouille, and The Incredible, (directed by Brad Bird), Wall-E and Finding Nemo (directed by Andrew Stanton), and Up (directed by Pete Docter). Pete Docter returns to direct Inside-Out, Pixar’s fifteenth film, and while it is a bold and somewhat dubious declaration to proclaim this to be Pixar’s best (there are so many jewels in this crown) I’ll go out on a limb and say it anyway. This might be the best Pixar film ever. I’ll go a bit further and say that this might be the best film of 2015...

‘Da Party Animal’ Stileet to represent Bahamas at Atlanta Caribbean Carnival - May 19, 2015 - 9:43:26 AM

Atlanta, Georgia - Fresh off a powerful performance at the inaugural Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival, culture keeper, music maker and self-professed “rake ‘n’ scrape general” Stileet is headed back to Atlanta for the city’s largest Caribbean heritage celebration.

Stileet, who rocked the stage with the indigenous Bahamian sound of “rake ‘n’ scrape”, had previously performed at the 2013 Atlanta Caribbean Carnival. The artist is excited to take what he considers a dying genre of music to the masses and he’ll be doing that to his hit song ‘Da Party Animal’.

“I am da party animal!” Stileet declares. “I am da party animal and I am coming to mash up the party and Atlanta Caribbean carnival! I’m very excited to come back and to bring this song to Atlanta and introduce rake ‘n’ scrape to those who haven’t heard it...

Boos and Cheers at Cannes - May 17, 2015 - 4:19:50 PM

S-Cannes-3-Blanchett.jpg
CANNES, France - It is the best of times and the worst of times for me at the Cannes Film Festival. It’s the best of times because I’m here. Period. There’s nothing like this film festival.  It is an absolute must for every filmmaker, actor, production designer and everyone involved in the craft of filmmaking at some point in their creative lives.

Cannes is divided into two main facets. There are the films here that are in competition at the festival (for which you have to be invited) and the films that are here in the market of the festival (where anyone can go).

The festival itself exists somewhere between a film retreat and trade for all involved; and whether it’s the unending screenings in competition, the film screening in the market (Marche Du Cinema)...
