Man this shit is great. D Gainz arrived at 1am Friday morning. My friends Blair and Samantha drove me to the airport to pick him up and welcome him to Trinidad. We ate KFC and waited for his flight to arrive from Miami.  We hit the club to catch the end of alternative music night and haven't really stopped since.  Our makeshift film crew -- Shea, Dominic, Andy, Mike, Alicia -- has been rolling around recording, interviewing, liming. By the end of the weekend we'll have shot three hectic music videos and a couple hundred gigs of footage.  Who knows what I'll do with it all. Yesterday it was drones and Hennessey in downtown Port of Spain.  Today we shot with Meagan Gill in an abandoned church on the edge of town.  Rolling with D has changed how I see the place.  Everything is new to him, and his observations force me to look at Trinidad from different angles. The things I take for granted after about 18 months on the road I have to suddenly reexamine.  The vibes, though, are good, and that's what matters in Trinidad.
