Is it possible to separate Art from Artist?

I was a huge fan of R. Kelly’s music growing up and while my love for his music waned when I was asked to “Step in the Name of Love” and completely ended after he was “Trapped in the Closet” for the hundredth time, I knew every word of so many songs he had released…

Favourite Shows of 2018

I watched A LOT of television in 2018, partially due to being on sick leave for a month and partially due to the best thing since Sbarro’s chicken pizza, i.e. Netflix.  Not sure how 2019 will go tv-watching wise but if you have time and you haven’t yet, I suggest you try the following: 1….

Managing Your Own Expectations and Dealing with Disappointment

It’s easy to say that by ridding yourself of expectations you will not suffer disappointment but is that really possible?  Is it realistic?  Should we just throw caution to the wind and ignore our innermost feelings, hopes and desires?  Should we all just become cynics?

I think that by now anyone who follows some sort of social or traditional media platform is aware of the recent attempts by Omarosa Manigault-Newman to further expose the shenanigans taking place at the Donald Trump-led White House.  In her new book, “Unhinged”, she revealed that she taped her firing and the subsequent conversation on…

Lessons from the 2018 Barbados Election

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a fan of politics, particularly during the “Silly Season”, i.e. the few weeks preceding the general election.  The mudslinging, name-calling, posturing and avoidance of important issues in favour of playing to the gallery, are turn-offs for me.  It isn’t as though I don’t understand that a…
