subtlety is key.

The obnoxious blaring of the alarm clock that raises my consciousness out of the joyous oblivion that dream in, bringing me into reality to resume regimented activities that i've come to accept.  The digital clock displaying the time in blood red , an ever present reminder of the warning that my life ticks away.
Getting out of bed, knowing the responsibilities you are required to uphold, must be fulfilled. I begin rudimentary training and meditation in order to prepare for what is to come.
I enjoy where i live. The sounds of the multitude of wildlife, the leaves dancing in the wind the hawk flying near our house in the morning, the woodpecker tapping on the avocado tree,my whining pitbull who wishes to play. I'm lucky .A Wasteful minimalist , but lucky.
The stimuli provided by the ambiance and  riding keeps me sane.I leave the house in haste , pedaling as if  my legs were designed for that sole purpose.Paying attention un-ending need for the awareness of my environment,heart rate control, muscle tension on the bar as i only have one hand to hold onto it with. The demand for my personal input and total control of going wherever ,whenever and however i want to go.  the sound of the wind caressing my ears fills me with delight, indicating my  speed, raising my adrenaline and dopamine levels  the faster i go. I have an infinitely greater appreciation for life every-time i ride. I've been doing this for three years, and i have no intention of stopping now.
This euphoric sensation  lasts from my house, until i enter the city from the Savannah. I usually stop in the savanna and pick up as much trash to dump to and from home and school and dump it in the nearest bin.A futile effort as for every 3 pounds of trash i pick up, 5 more pounds take it's place when people come out to train in the afternoon. You do it anyway for your sake and theirs.
As i enter the city, its ambient sounds come into focus. Thousands of cars, commuting to converge in the city uncaring about his fellow commuters for their selfish desire to get to the destination they are late for,the low pitch "humming" of the city from air conditioners, generators, motors. All in low frequency. This crescendo of negativity that people gravitate towards has always perplexed me. Labeling this place as an area of opportunity and profitability, without realizing they behave like moths gravitating around  and towards a bonfire, or wolves in a pit following each other in a circle, hoping that one of them weakens enough for them to devour before they all starve to death .
Our ancestors, made communities and civilizations to get away from predators. Now, as we've become the apex of our world, man has created his own jungle, where he hunts himself for a prize nobody really wins., except the future. If they would share this sentiment, is and always will be in question.

New game in development

Starting a new video game with  a new team consisting of my good friends Kezlon Sutherland, Shane Michael Layne, Himraj Bir, Brian Perry, Joel Salazar and Aggrey Marsh.
It will be our first time developing anything close to this scale and beyond the boarders of our lecturers assistance, however, we believe we have the capacity, resourcefulness and ingenuity to overcome the constraints of our inexperience.
We've begun using three SDK's unity,facebook and libGDX to implement onto two platforms: mobile and web browser (via facebook), while trying to ensure this project has a prototype variant by the end of december. Our public beta should be completed by August if all goes well.

Changed website link from ponderousb to

It was about that time to do it and a configuration to the site. A minor update, but will resume posting again.

30 things you can’t do with a broken hand

Recently broke my hand from a hit and run. Though the rest of my body and mind are ok (save for my pride) this blog articulates the frustration of a clean break.

Startup weekend and the development of the game "doubles tycoon"

It's been a long time, but i suppose this event that had the pleasure of experiencing would make up for my grossing levels of inactivity. So i'll start with what happened 4 weeks ago.
On May 22nd, 2013, the Faculty of Engineering at The University of the West Indies hosted Start-Up Weekend Trinidad and Tobago (SWTT). start up weekend is an organization created for the purpose of networking possible leaders, developers,designers and entrepreneurs of every field,  with the desire to empower, inspire, create and flourish an idea, individuals, teams and a community via the formation of teams and starting up ideas.   It was the first time that the 3-day event was held in Trinidad and Tobago.  As the organizers joked, it was scheduled with the “Trinidadian ” in mind- being held from Wednesday to Friday, rather than Friday to Sunday as is customary.
There were over 120 participants that formed over 16 teams to pitch,conceptualize and bring their idea into reality. I worked with the programmers Kris Manohar, Keshav Bahadoor, Sterling Kevin Ramroach, and Rachel Yen Chong, the designers Rene holder from Lab 206 studios in Trinidad and Rishma Helena Hansil, and one of the business entrepreneurs Gyasi Pablo Ambrose. Working on one of the first mobile application games to be published on the google play store, which then went on to become the top ten most played and available games on the google play store, known as "doubles tycoon"

Possibly one of the most well rounded team i've ever had the benefit of working with in a long time, as we all were aware of what we had to do, what required to be produced within two days and passionate in our respective fields. A well experienced and versed in our respective fields, my old legal/financial experience, combined with my verse knowledge of the gaming industry and it's respective revenue and marketing models, Gyasi's experience  in social media marketing, Sterling, Kris, and Keshav's outstanding programming qualifications and experience in game development and Rene and Rashmi's excellent ability to quickly and effectively generating concept,user interface and 2-d animation, served as an extremely well balanced meal to bring in front of a Panel of judges that I presented to a panel of expert judges, being versed in the field of programming,art design and financial investment to be in the top 3 teams (placing 2nd) 

Though now it is nothing more than a memory, it's impact on me has been well placed on the importance of understanding how to work with capable and effective individuals that can teach you many things about your character and your capacity to put out what you are truly passionate about.

Merely a thought

The leaders of Trinidad and Tobago are not to blame for our (the people) inadvertent lack of understanding or desire for change, as Trinidadians contradict their own desire, as great change affects everything they do, thus vehemently rejecting any form of it, regardless of it being beneficial for the Country/institution in the Country on a whole.
Due to the peoples decision on such confusing principle that they hold dear,the fragility, weakness and irresponsibility of our "leaders" ( I dare not use this word as the quality of leadership is non-existent )is a testament that reflect on the overall psychological pattern of the people of Trinidad and Tobago.
Not truly knowing what they want, and thus systematically destroying our own country, whilst blaming it on the leaders who they themselves voted for in the first place, as if to absolve themselves of their own shortcomings.

Constructive things you can do with money spent on a carnival costume:

Disregard this if you are getting a carnival costume for free,otherwise, take a read.

1. Invest in a small company/kickstart a company that can do some good for the world with your accreditation to it.( I mean literal "this guy helped me do this, an actual huge project in which he helped successfully pulled off" by just investing money, goes an insanely longer way than being able to jump up and whine for two days ) Hell it'll make more money for you in the long run, so you can go whine and jump and drink your liver till it grows 50 times it's normal length, and you'll be able to pay it off because, well you rich.

2. Learn a new skill by paying for classes.A practical sub-skill that could compliment your skillset and you in the work place. Hell you can learn to sing or play an instrument for all i care. Do something that does not consist of specializing in fucking liming and football. Anyone can do that. Oh yeah, this point coincides with the first point, as learning about finance and investment will be paramount to do what 1st point suggested.

3. Fix your car.Better yet, sell it and buy an actual car that isn't 2nd hand or not foreign used.

4. Buy a new high end laptop that'll last you for 3-5 years if you take good care of it.

5. Buy a ticket and travel to another Country and learn something about another culture that you will NOT learn in Turnydad.(and no not Tobago this doesn't count EVER). There are 196 countries in the world, pick one that costs the price of the ticket. Hell if an American can back pack travel the world with only $100 US, $5,000 TT should make you balling all over the goddamn world TWICE.

6. pay off a flat electricity,water,internet and cellphone bill for 3 Months

7. Buy fixed assets like tables, fridges,chairs,sofa's which you can store in the house you are currently living ( or your families) to use if/when you buy/obtain a house from HCL.

8. Buy a small pool/Jacuzzi/kick ass bathtub for your home (which is pretty kick ass)

9. Rent a boat and learn to sail .

 I can keep doing these lists, but i don't think people will actually take me on.
I assure you,however, taking a loan for carnival, or putting yourself at a financial disadvantage for a few months for two days of celebrating whatever silly freedoms you think you have, is simply not worth it. Spend your money that will last far longer and will bring in actual long lasting benefits that you can be thankful for.
