Girls Have All The Fun….Well Most Times!

Standard

Far from being a magical experience, Pandora’s…Magic City All Girls party felt more like a technically competent fete. It was as if we had been promised a trip to Paris, Barcelona or even Emerald City but ended up in Singapore a nice destination but definitely not magical. Yet such is the soundness of the technical and engineering party model being employed by the Couture Elements Kru (Elements) that, here at PINK the feeling is that the issue is less about what went wrong with this party and more about what did not go right!

The positives

To be fair to the management of Elements, in just two short parties they have nailed down the art of developing a concept and a brand. From the moment one stepped through the doors of the location, it was evident that the intention of the management team was to provide an experience that was incomparable to anything ever seen on the local Rainbow circuit. The decor of the venue was high end, high quality, first world -if not other-worldly; without being gaudy, pretentious and vomit inspiring. It was very clear that the party organizers sought to strike a fine balance between recreating the Avatar theme whilst giving off a club vibe. This they achieved as the decor did not over-power and more importantly- did what they were expected to do which is set a mood. Furthermore, the Lights show and the smoke machine helped to enhance the club vibe and completed the effect of recreating the Planet Pandora.

Yet even though we are into the third paragraph, we cannot get over the decor. The party organizer’s were so meticulous with space planning that the bar rather than being in an awkward and Back-o-Wall position, as we have grown accustomed to, was placed within easy reach of spacious and relatively clean bathrooms. Now anyone who has anything to do with the ladies must know that clean, well located bathrooms are an organizational necessity when planning any event in which they are being catered to. Simply put ladies do not have the luxury of equipment that facilitates the art of Zip And Fly.

Notably, whilst we were impressed with the location of the DJ station what wowed us, was the fact that even though there were two dance floors the music flowed seamlessly. No one at the party could complain that one dance floor was the poor relation of the other. The acoustics on both dance-floors was excellent. However, dance floor number two owing to the fact that it had lounge chairs et al lent it self to more of a loungy, relaxed vibe whilst dance-floor number one had a higher energy.

The “Questionables”!

It is a distinct possibility that the reason the party missed the mark was owing to two reasons, namely:

  1. A technically weak DJ
  2. One too many dance floors

In dealing with the first matter! This fete illustrates that the key ingredient to a having a good party is DJ quality. It does not matter how good the location, the quality of the decor, or even the acoustics of the venue what is important is the music.  The DJ at this event, requires much practice as on the one hand her song selections were excellent but the switch between musical genres was choppy at best and terrible in the main. In fact if playing a song too long was a crime, this DJ was a repeat offender.

The two dance floors scenario would have worked better if there were more persons to populate them. As it were, there was simply too much space making it impossible to Build A Vibes. Indeed the high point of the evening was the several paparazzi shots of persons in attendance and not the actual dancing.

Conclusions

This party was an eye opener and a lesson for us here at PINK. In the first instance we arrived at the event at approximately 2:50 a.m. If this were an average Rainbow event catering to men this would be a good time to arrive. However, owing to security considerations, women have been and are socialized to leave home and return early. This we admit may have negatively influenced our assessment of the vibe level in relation to the population on the dance floor. Moreover, we missed the performance by Neyritiri which we have been advised by several of the persons in attendance as being simply off the chain.

Judging from the beauty of the women we saw in attendance, PINK has begun to realize why so many persons in hetero-society are so cross as of late. Quite frankly, the women were of the quality that only a gay man can appreciate and another lady could show love.

We recommend to the party promoters that that they keep their focus on the ladies i.e. maintain their NO MEN POLICY. Yes we recognize that the argument for this position is that some elements within the community are perpetrators of violence at Rainbow events. However, the finer demand point is that the women, Element’s constituents, really just want a space free of men.

  1. This story I love, and true the ladies need their space and while some of us can respect that, other persons feel the need to be at every even; wanting to be seen so the idea is to create some kind of ruption to be seen.

  2. Pink Report, let me suggest that you hurry and get a female reporter as evidently being a man…and a bi-sexual one at that you missed all the detail the organisers placed in this event. I happened to be at the event and found it to be an excellent party… Your report is very bias and not true well most of it at least. The first i should talk about the dance floor the both of them were ram packed and if there was not 2 dance floor it would be too much people and the place would be very miserable well you came too late and you cant come to a party and come at 3 to judge and i see you were busy hitting on the girls or the little much of the guys who were there cause i see you dancing with guys as well. You didnt appear to be put off by the music being played. I will admit the DJ ommitted to play techno, club mix, but I have observed that most of the ladies prefer hardcore dancehall music, and seeing that it wasn’t a party for men…it figured.

    The lounge chairs in the second dancefloor were a real help as many girls seemed relieved that they could sit and rest…as well as other things.

    The party was also marketed as one that they should take cameras for…so that they could catch the memory of the decor…the waterfalls, and forrests…and the avatar girl (Neytiri) which was the party’s main attraction but apparently you failed to even mention.

    I am not sure of the objective of ur reviews, but this one is extremely biased…I would advise the Couture Elements Kru to ensure you personally do not attend their events as you were seen hitting on the girls the whole night…certainly not what they need in their ‘own’ space. The girls dont have a problem with certain gay men in there space…but they have a huge problem with bi-sexual men hitting on them.

    The truth is the truth….and your article was biased and NOT TRUE

    • I actually find your analysis to be funny and intriguing..I normally would have avoided responding, however, you have indicated that my article was not true using some facts that I find questionable.

      In the first instance you claimed I was hitting on the girls. I guess soliciting opinons from the ladies on what they thought about the party, passes now for hitting up! However, interestingly by attacking my point about maintaining the NO Men policy based on my perceived behaviour, you actually strengthen the point. Since there is no science about disaggregating who is gay from who is bi-sexual, then the question is why not just keep it to the women. It was not a party to include Men. However, I most certainly do concur that PINK needs to get a female correspondent.

      Secondly, you say I did not mention Neyritir’s performance.Please read paragraph 8 lines6-7. Please also note that I did publicly state that I missed that performance. Please also note that I did mention the time I arrived and also publicly indicated that this could have negatively affected my analysis of the crowd on the dancefloor. Please also note that I included even a sociological analysis on the matter as it regards the rearing of females versus males.

      thirdly..the lounge chairs in the second dancefloor could seat 6-8 persons comfortable. By your own statement, the party was jam packed..Thus to what extent could these lounge chairs be of any assistance to even a significant portion of the audience. Thus by your own words you have ended up illustrating that either there were not as many persons at the event as you indicated or I was correct about the loungy atmosphere in dancefloor 2. Thus again you have failed to indicate what about my article was untrue or biased.

      Finally the article actually said that the Dj’s music selection was excellent, it was the change between songs that was terrible and choppy. You on the other hand have extended the analysis to say her musical vocabulary was limited. Thus by default you have agreed with me that, this was an area of weakness.

      My own interpretation of your analysis is that you did not read my article and given that your own words substantiate my analysis, you are actually in agreement!

      Regards

  4. I am very pleased that you have outlined the positives of the party in addition to the negatives. I will agree with you that the decor of the venue was high end, high quality, first world -if not other-worldly etc this highlight that deep thought, creativity, energy and time was in the planning of such event and for this I commend the management team for an awesome work. The thing is though for me I didn’t see anything wrong with the 2 dance floors this added a touch of variety for me. The thing is even if there were more persons to populate the floors, if the patrons themselves don’t build the vibes then there wont be any vibes. My sister ( blood sister) our friend and me we build vibes in our little spot. We didn’t care who wasn’t building vibes, WE did because a ” PARTY WE SEY” we came to have fun and we went home fulfilled. Yes the Djs could have been better in the transition but because songs selected were you “could work with it”. Additionally the support could also be more, I wish I knew more persons who I could invite but for me Im just getting into the network.

    I really commend the team for their effort and the concept being portrayed and as they say ” LEVEL UP’ Im looking forward to bigger and better things as time progresses.

  5. The party was good for a girl party i guess its something different for me the vybez was really good i do agree that the dj never did a play so good and a dj is the captain of the party the ship if him na play good people na go like it
    the decor was good and it was cool and nice the girl dem love the avatar girl and the jello shots but over all it was good

  6. Having re read the review twice, i did not see any indication of it being a biased report. Further more, the writer is writing based on what he/she saw and is writing based on his/her own opinion, so he/she is entitled to it. If the organizers/patrons felt as though the review is biased and in their belief think it was a good party, then that is their own opinion. As a promoter, one should be open to criticism, whether it is good or bad and not say its biased because the writer did not say it (the party) was a great one. This should be a good motivator for the promoters to next time wow their patrons and leave them in awe. And even if they did, the writer in this case did not feel that it was a bad party.
