Good Times is when Yard Meet Farrin

Sweat soaked bodies emerged from the metal and glass doors still vibrating from the sound of the music. Exhausted patrons with broad smiles gravitated to the cool climate outside the once packed Mingles nightclub that hosted the first international edition of Good Times last Friday.

Local originators of the blockbuster Good Times party series, The Quorum and New York based promoters, Irie Jam Media, partnered to secure the necessary documents to export the brand to the USA.

"New York has a large Jamaican population, it was a natural choice for the first party overseas," explained The Quorum executive member, Jerome Hamilton. "We knew lots of people visit Jamaica for Good Times, it was time to take Good Times to them," he added.

And take Good Times they did. The Good Times signature feature - the best , most popular music from the 19somethings cunningly mixed with minimal talk - was ably delivered by FAME FM's DJ Kurt Riley. "The Party Animal" moved effortlessly between genres to the delight of West Indians in New York as evidenced by the gyrating and screaming of Good Times party lovers. Not to be outdone, Irie Jam Radio DJ's Dubmaster Chris and DJ Roy mixed it up for the crowd in total enjoyment of the Good Times concept.

Bruk Pocket Jamaican

"Recently, this Jamaican won the 10 million special lottery for a dollar. As soon as the office of the Lottery Corporation was open on the following day, he was there to collect his winnings.

Graciously, he presented his winning ticket to the clerk and in his best English uttered his request "Me cum fi collect the 10 millian dallars, si me ticket ya".

After reviewing and checking the ticket with his manager, the clerk returned and requested on how he would like his payments. The Jamaican replied "Mi wan all a de moni now". "Unfortunately, Sir" the nervous clerk responded, "The procedures are that we can only give you one million now and the balance equally over the next 20 years".

Furious and agitated, the Jamaican asked for the manager, who re-iterated "Sir, my assistant is correct, it is the regulation of the corporation that we initially pay you one million dollars now with the balance paid to you equally over the next 20 years".

Outraged, the Jamaican slammed his hand on the desk and shouted in anger, "Oonu tek me fi idiat, me wan all a de moni now or oonu gi me bak me rass dallar!!"
