My best Jamaican story.. hiked/travelled all over Jamaica = hitchhiked, 1 Jay buses or
Tap Tap vans/collectives .. got into Kingston at the markets... went into a shop to get a beer ..(PoI) there are many Chinese in the Caribe because of Brit Colonialism... My good Trini friend is called a China Royal he has a slight Chineses aspect via his Grandma's mother....Again ... From west country...got into Kingston at the markets... went into a shop to get a beer .... Chinese shop keeper ...it was getting out of school time and a wee girl in her school uniform PROCLAIMS: He Chinese, you White and I am BLACK but WE ARE ALL JAMAICANS....
(ps- The official Jamaican National motto is something like "Many colors - ONE PEOPLE."

Hey,is there a difference between a pressed vinyl and a vinyl made on a lathe?
quality wise?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am Gary:

Wow, Ami, that's a great question, and I think it depends in part on at least one or two other factors?

Perfect sounds whilst I cook an awesome late Sunday roast
  10:01am Morphe’:

Ami- cannot say but I did once call Rex(sat 1100 est) to ask why a record is called a “musical biscuit.” He explained that, before being pressed, the vinyl looks like biscuit, scone, roll.... All credit to Rex...

Ami -"The Lunatic" is a great Jamaican book and film .....
There is also a very funny Jamaican film about a guy who gets a job at one of those "all in one shit holes" but he doesnot knowhow to swimm.
