Sumfest... The Aftermath

Well now, the votes are in and the people have spoken (alright maybe just my opinion) but sumfest was hyype!!!!
Sorry if i seem a little excited but it was good really enjoyed myself. I can honestly say that i didnt really miss the Warlord or the Gyal Dem suga, as excellent performances by Sizzla, Capleton, Ele and every other performer simple rocked the place. I could go on and talk about International Nights, but then i would be posting something like a report and you can get that from the observer....... ok ive been convinced ill tell you all how sumfest really was.

Starting off With Roots Rockers Night (or whatever it was called), this night was definately one for the, older people in Jamaica. The artists came on stage and did their best exciting the crowd with some old hits that most havent heard in 20+ years. The best performance for this night would have to go to Josey Wales in Collaboration with Charley Chaplain the two dancehall veterans who came on the stage and simply showed their class. The had the crowd going for the full half hour that they performed for.

Next Dancehall Night was up, clearly a night for the younger generation (me) Catherine Hall was jam packed with spectators who came to get a great show, and i think most would agree with me when i say a show they did get. The early artists came and got the crowd started, they managed to keep the crowd in the venue with great performances... but the excitement really started when chuck fendah came on stage and gave a really energetic performance that prepared the crowd for turbulence who managed to keep the flow going. Macka Diamond and Lady saw (known for raunchy performances) got the the women started up in the crowd but made sure never to leave out the men. The next performer on stage was Assassin who came and left people anticipating the next string of performers. Sizzla came on stage and gave an award winning performance, every song that was performed showed why sizzla is possibly the best dj that jamaica has to offer right now. After his performance Elephant man came on stage and kept the hype going with his various dancing songs, ending his performance on a rendition of We are the World. Capleton closed the show with what was an energetic performance but most of the people were too tired to build a hype after the performances before. Performance of the night, as a matter of fact performance of the entire weekend goes to Sizzla Kalonge

International Night Number 1 had a somewhat weak lineup with only 12 artists. But Ciara, Richie Spice, Sanchez and Akon made sure that the lineup still was a crowd pleaser. Their performances were energetic and most people did not leave dissapointed (I did have a problem with Ciara lip synching though). Akon would win performance of the night as he got the crowd going especially when he came off stage and joined his adoring fans.

International Night Number 2 was just as good as number one. Fantasia gave a wonderful performance and made people realize that she did deserve to win the American Idol competition as her voice is powerful and clean. Great performances also came from Luciano Toots and the Maytals and Jr. Gong (who also brought up Ziggy Marley). Performance of this night would be too hard to tell as every performer sounded excellent.

So all in all sumfest wasnt all that bad, although most people thought it wouldve been lame, the performers and the organizers made sure that this wasnt so

The Small Sandal Shop

A married couple was on holiday in Jamaica. They were touring around the marketplace looking at the goods when they passed this small sandal shop.

From inside they heard the shopkeeper with a Jamaican accent say, "You!

Foreigners! Come in, come into my humble shop."

So the married couple walked in.

The Jamaican said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you would be interested in. They make you wild at sex."

Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was.

The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?"

The Jamaican replied, "Just try them on."

Well, the husband, after some badgering from his wife, finally gave in, and tried them on. As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in many years!

In the blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Jamaican, bent him

violently over a table, yanked down his pants, ripped down his own pants,and grabbed a firm hold of the Jamaican's hips.

The Jamaican then began screaming; "YOU GOT THEM ON THE WRONG FEET!!!"
