    Islandmix, How do you feel...

    About the commercials that Verizon has put on TV that caters to the West Indians is America making long distance calls to "home."

    I personally love them. The one where the woman is getting married in the Caribbean and asks the chef to cook Roti and curry for her wedding.

    The most recent I like is where the man is calling his father back home and telling him he's making a steel drum for his son. Throughout the commercial they showing him making it and his son playing it at the end.

    Sorry, I just love when West Indian culture is being broadcasted, so I decided to post how I felt.

    How bout all yuh?

    Trinigyal, what stations carry those commercials because I don't think I've seen those? I saw the Western Union one while watching Westwood Park on a Sunday night but never those. You're right it is always good to see our culture onscreen because we hardly ever do. There are quite a few latin shows on network tv on Sunday mornings etc but nothing Caribbean (that I've seen). That's why I stay up every Sunday night to watch Westwood Park, a Trinidad soap opera, pure bacchanal. There are definitely not enough Caribbean programming on TV or movies. Sometimes I wonder if they think if there was a Caribbean tv show or a movie in theatres that we wouldn't patronize it.

    It's on at 11:00 pm. I am in contact with the director and she told me that they just finished the new season and is real "bacchanal" and much better. Her company is currently working on a movie that will be straight to video. I will keep the 'Mix memebers up to date on that info.

    I will try to find out what American markets it airs. Unfortunately I think it may be only showing in NY but I will definitely inquire for you and others on de 'Mix.

    Stay tuned.

    Midnight, those commercials come on the local cable stations, mainly channel 9 and 11. I don't get to see Westwood Park. Does it go on in Jer-z?
