Make That Thing Just Wiggle Wiggle, Left And
Right Just Make It Jiggle, Laugh Out!
Rotterdam Summer Carnival as always and will always be a tradition for
us carnival chasers at TJJ since our inception and we have been very present
in Rotterdam since 2006. We continue
to attend this short but sweet Carnival Festival every year and as we
noticed last year it is getting bigger and bigger. This year
it was a one man show (as always in Rotterdam) and with a festival so
short and exotic, I shall keep this short (well not entirely) and exotic
The usual routine for Rotterdam Summer Carnival still applies - it is
held over the last weekend in July - this year being 29th to 31st ...
Friday to Sunday. Arrive the Friday, attend the pre-party-warm-up sessionSocaliciouswhich unfortunately is still held in Amsterdam and
not in Rotterdam ... continues to be its downfall ... but that is where
it is ... if you do not want to attend ... your loss ... and let me not
get started on the paying to urinate story at that club in Amsterdam ...
what's it called? Roses? Pssshhhh!!!!!
Saturday is the day where we are completely devoured by our costumes.
The day has arrived. You put on that pretty mas, or your colourful jersey,
you gather up your posse, you put on your make up, you attach the beads
onto your face for style, you apply the glitter with the moisterising
applicant, you ensure at all times you know where you are ... and here
we go! Rotterdam
Street Parade continues to not only excite
the colourful mind and erotic nerves and sensations but also creates a
splendid feeling of euphoria as it spreads itself through your body. Masqueraders
who were present will even experience the recreation of that euphoria
as they just read that line ...
Now Zomer Carnival is a festival of all cultures and bearing that in mind
- you will then experience all different sorts of mas bands. However,
if you are a Carnival Person from the Caribbean you will know that the
mas band with the most vibes and all the soca energy
(Don't feel the enery, live the energy ... as My Political Representative
would say) ... is TriniConnections.
I swear after Zomer 2010, I told myself, I am filming 2011 ... I am so
disappointed I didn't.
Last year there was an After Party which completed the whole weekend for
Zomer Carnival 2011 - however, this year, the After Party was somewhere
in negative space - and to be honest, I was too tired and spent from the
previous events that the After Party could remain in negative space.
SO!! There you have it folks ... some could
say the a rival for the best two days of their lives, some would say it
was a great way to spend a weekend!
Scorn DO's for Rotterdam Summer Carnival
Always pack different types of clothes weather wise,
you never know what a summer in Europe will be like ... can someone
If you looking for a Soca mas band in Zomer - TriniConnections;
Wear comfortable clothing including shoes that you
can throw away after this weekend's debauchery because I can guarantee
you that you will end up partaking in immoral acts of gyration.
Scorn DON'Ts for Rotterdam Summer Carnival
Do not fall out with your friends on a foreign ground;
If a female tells you that you are aggressive then
its probably a bad thing ...; and
Do not take off your clothes during a carnival parade
and honestly think you will be able to keep it until the end and then
when you are asked where it is, you do not remember ...
Weekend survived ... off to the
Red Light District ...

a special and unique mental condition called Wild Intense Nympho Euphoria
(WINE). The symptoms of W.I.N.E. involves wearing erotic and seductive
costumes, wearing masks to cover faces, consuming large amounts of alcohol,
gyrating on other human beings while music soars through your heads and
utilising the road and any other object not for their intended use but
for a prop while physically grinding up on another human being. Unfortunately
for these people, there is no said cure to W.I.N.E. at this time!!! If
after observing this condition and you feel the compelling need to help
W.I.N.E. sufferers please attend any and all caribbean affiliated carnivals
all over the world and that way you can provide your waistline for constant
and thorough experimentation to help cure this unique mental condition
called W.I.N.E. However, if you are only capable of moving your waistline
from side to side and not in a perfect circular motion, please consult
your Primary School Mathematics Teacher for further guidance and ways
you can help.
