Wave Your Flag
Man, I'm so sad I can't be on the Eastern Parkway this year. Fuck Republicans in Penn Station or terrorists in limousines, this year feels like it might be historic or something.

For one, Kevin Lyttle opened Top 10, which has to be the biggest soca debut in the history of the universe. The shift back from "fiyah bu'n" to "dancehall nice again" means that everyone, even Beenie Man, seems to have stepped up their game to please the audience. Then you've got the year of the dancehall diva--Tanya Stephens, Lady Saw, Ms. Thing, the list goes on.

While we're on the topic, Tanya Stephens is the Joni Mitchell or maybe the Betty Davis of dancehall. Lady Saw is the Madonna of dancehall, and deserves her own MTV opener with Lil Kim and Foxy Brown. And Ms. Thing, well, she's the Vanity 6 of dancehall.

Stelfox, holla!
