WHAT'S HAPPENING by Todd Mangatal
To all among our on-line family:
It's been what? 4 weeks since I've been chilling, and not vibing with you, and I surly missed it. You see for the past couple of years I found myself constantly sitting in front of the computer (which is not a bad thing), but I had decided to challenge myself a bit and get out in the world for a minute. With the little time off I got caught up in some different projects, and became very busy, and is still a bit busy. I do have so many things to say, and had intended on doing so this week especially with the elections that just passed, however my schedule did not permit me to jot down my thoughts for my weekly commentary, (which is racing all around my mind). My thoughts on these elections and the whole entire situation are completely different and I do intend to share them with you, however I will do so next week. Notice below Susan has shared her views with you. Let me know what you think firstname.lastname@example.org. As CA Governor Arnold would say "I'll be back" with you next week with my commentaries.
Wow, Susan is real passionate about this election, and many of her points are valid, but we have discussed this on numerous occasion and she knows the answers and the truth!!!! However, I guess it's hard for her to accept that the "Bad Man" era is not over!! We all must accept that!
Anyway, back to my regular every day life and to what keeps my mind in “tack” is the love for the music and entertainment. As you are aware this past weekend was Howard University’s Homecoming, and our town was “jumping”, lots of Howard University’s alumni, past and present was in town. The Caribbean Community had lots of things happening in celebration of this weekend as well, and we were “graced” with Trinidad artists Bunji Garlin, and Machel Montano. Even though we were happy that these artists were in town, we were disappointed that both were performing on the same night. Anyway, we swung by Bunji’s show, and the line was so long to get in the venue that we didn’t make it in. The same thing almost happened with Machel’s show, due to the massive amount of people. I was unable to find parking at the venue, so I told my wife (Susan) to go on without me, and check out the show, but Jah works in mysterious ways, and to my surprise management of the venue found parking for me. Anyway the place was rammed by the time we got there (real late), and it was clear that folks were extremely excited to see Machel, who by the way put on a fabulous show. Machel’s band Xtatik is very versatile, they played everything, and Machel as usual was full of energy, actually the entire band is extremely energetic. Being that Susan and I are always analyzing our experiences, we got into a deep conversation about Machel, I felt that he is a wasted talent, and after explaining my point to Susan, she finally agreed. Yes, Machel is very talented, and to me it’s a waste to see that his music is not getting any airplay in the mainstream/crossover market. I strongly believe that his music will hit, and will sell, and not only that, he is a great performer. I don’t know what it is, but he deserves to be in the mainstream!
This week I received some exciting news about a hot new riddim that was recently released, which features some of T&T's hottest performers. On November 1, 2004, Madd Flava Records from Long Island, NY released two (2) tracks off their latest musical recording "The Good Gyal Riddam. This riddim is prepared for T&T Carnival 2K5. This features some big names from Trinidad, Bunji Garlin, Maximus Dan, Denise Belfon, and many other performers. In addition, local promoter I.C.E. Entertainment has signed on as Executive Producer for the riddim and will focus on final production, distribution and marketing of this release. Big Up I.C.E!

I want to say thanks to the many people from our community who complimented me/us on the dedication regarding the distribution of our weekly “What’s Happening” e-mails. Their kind words are always appreciated. I have said this before, and I will say it again, I have strong support from my family when it comes to whatever I believe in. If it’s not for my wife’s commitment, I know I would not be able to do this alone. When I don’t feel like it, she is always there to handle it. From both of us we thank you for you nice words!
