Let us pray

This has to be one of the funniest clips I've ever seen. One of my favorite childhood divas praying for Sister Whitney. Gurlfriend....I think it's working!

White Trash

Quick post. A photo from Friday's work Halloween activities. I was a white trash Joe Boxer model. My coworker was a white trash Hanes model (sexually confused at that)...

Greetings earthlings. Yes I'm alive. Just been busy and really haven't had a chance to post in awhile. Thanks to everyone that's been asking about chus. He's doing really well. Still awaiting some final results from the Vet, but keep your fingers crossed that everything goes well. He gets his stitches out Sat. I am sure he'll be thrilled because he's currently sporting this contraption until they come out:

In other news we didn't end up getting dolled up for halloween. But we did go out Sat w/ Jorgillo & RDDP and had a blast. I woke up w/ a hangover the next day. I didn't even drink that much but the combination of different liquors didn't help.

So it's already November and I'm already freaking out because I have yet to find a hall to have my 30th birthday party. It's a little over 2 months away, so wish me luck in finding a proper venue :)

I've been spending what little free time I have transferring videos to my computer. I have so many to go through still! I did however upload a clip of Alaska when she was on Desde Gayola:

Speaking of Alaska, apparently they announced that Fangoria will be performing at Circuit. When? I have no idea. Don't worry I'll find out more info.

While I await Chava's trip to mixup, I couldn't stand it any longer and am listening to the new Fangoria album El extraño viaje. I'm barely on track 2...so until next time!

Get well Chus

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Thursday evening we noticed that Chus wasn't acting right. Around 1am we took him to the animal ER to find out that he had a stone in his bladder and it was causing his bladder to back up w/ urine. At 4am we took him out to the burbs to a specialty clinic (which incidently is the same clinic that operated on him last year) because he had to have an emergency operation to remove the stone. It is now Saturday afternoon and he is safe and sound home w/ us again :) Poor thing was really scared, but my little guy is a survivor and he should be all better very soon. He's on meds, and in 2 weeks can have his stitches removed.

I don't know if any of you are pet owners (or even parents for that matter) but the stress that one goes through when these type of emergencies occur is really overwhelming. Even though I was up til 6am Friday, I couldn't really sleep until I knew that he was out of harm's way. I don't think I properly slept until maybe 3pm in the afternoon.

The scary thing about this is that it just appears out of nowhere. It's not there are any symptoms. Scary stuff. But thanks to those of you who sent your kind words and prayers. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Rosa pastel

After months and months we finally get word that Belanova is finally coming to Chicago! Yay! They are playing Sunday, November 5 @ the Green Dolphin. The only downfall is it's going to be one of those Sólo con invitación events that Miller sponsors. Luckily for me I was able to score a ticket (as did. Rob and my Milwaukee Sister).

If you want to try your luck try the following 2 websites: enchufate.net or millerenchicago.com. The only downfall is that lord knows how many actual fans will really win tickets. Hopefully it's not all full of nacos or reggaetón skanks.

I am still having fun w/ my new toy, and last night I ripped this video as it's from one of my fave one-album-wonder acts :)

My new toy

Had a busy weekend as my Mom came into town and we spent all day Sat shopping. I'm pooped!! Since we got our new computer I decided to treat myself to something I've ALWAYS WANTED. I purchased a converter to transfer video to my computer!!! OMG it is the coolest thing I have EVER bought. I was up until 2am and I barely got through a tape or two. I have tons of old video clips, performances, etc. from my loser teen years. LOL! So I share w/ you one of my treasures. The following is the video for Duri Duri by obscure Mexican girl group Click:

For even more clips visit my video list at youtube.

Long Box

The other day I guestimated that my CD collection is now at 2,000+. It might sound like a lot to some people, but I know others who own more. As digital music becames more popular, I still can't bring myself to settle for a mere mp3. I will buy the occasional remix on itunes, but I can't bring myself to buy an entire album. It just seems like an overpriced burned cd. Anyhoo that really isn't the point of my post.

About a month agao I joined Costco and when we were there I noticed that they had Christina Aguilera's latest in a longbox!!!!

Some of you might be too young to remember when CDs came in longboxes. Up until 1993 CDs were sold in longboxes. I know they stopped doing them because they were not environmentally friendly, blah blah. But I miss them! They were so cool! It was like getting a free poster w/ every cd I bought back then:

The odd thing was that any Spanish language CDs came in long plastic cases, and not the fancy cardboard boxes of their english counterparts.

Since I am on the subject of CDs, I have to tell you all about my latest obsession! Lala.com!!! Basically what it is a website where you can trade unwanted cds for ones you want. And to top it off it only costs $1 per cd (there's a 75¢ shipping fee and they provide the shipping materials). Now I sound like an informercial, but it's really cool and I've gotten rid of some CDs I no longer deemed worthy (besides I knew I wouldn't get more than a few $$ on ebay, so I may as well get another CD in exchange). So far I've gotten about 6 CDs and have been able to complete some of missing artists collections (so far mainly Jody Watley, Roxette, Kd Lang, etc.). It's great for CDs you want, but wouldn't necessarily go out of your way to purchase.

Click here to get any of my CDs for $1

Above is just a sampling of some of the CDs on my "have" list...you should think about joining! It's great!!!!

Justo en el momento

Guess what? We got our new mac! Yay! It's a 20" imac and it rocks my world!

We already set it up and now we can actually use our office space that we've been ignorning for so long! Yay!

So while I was browsing on youtube, I came across this video:

In 1992 when I was 15 and was relearning Spanish, I also discovered pop music en español. I would watch Siempre en domingo every Sunday to see who was on and discover new music (well new for me). Anyhoo one of them was the above song, Justo en el momento by one of my now eternal favorites Sasha Sökol :) I've never seen this video and since I know some of you are fans *cough chava cough* I just thought I'd share.

Hope all of you are well. Talk to you soon!

Tú tomaste tus...

...decisiones. Have any of you ever watched Decisiones on Telemundo?

OMG it's so awful, but I can't stop watching it! The acting is so bad, the story lines are "supposedly" based on true stories, but they are just hilarious. It's so bad I can't help but watch it whenever it's on! The actors that are on there are beyond D-list. But some of those boys are hot! And there's even gay story lines here and there! I love it hard!

In totally unrelated news, for some reason I have been on this huge Roxette kick lately. They were huge in the late 80s and early 90s. Believe it or not I never owned any of their stuff back then! Shocking I know. I didn't ever buy my first Roxette CD until returning from Spain in 1999 and hearing Wish I Could Fly constantly and immediately falling in love w/ that song. Don't know why I brought this up, but I just wanted to say how much I am liking them and how much I adore Marie Fredriksson's voice. So with that said I leave you w/ one of my fave Roxette songs, the afore mentioned Wish I Could Fly:

Maybe it's because this box set is coming out very soon...must have resparked my interest.

Remember 90s Mexican teen hearthrob Flavio Cesar??

Did I have a crush on him back in the day. Anyhoo, since I know some of you like him as well, I came across some info on him.

He's found the lord and is doing Christian music! He still looks good though...

He has a website up at flaviocesar.com.mx.

In other mind boggling news I totally forgot to watch America's Next Top Model last night!!???!!! WTF!!??!!! We were out grocery shopping and completely lost track of time. Does it reair on Fridays like when it was on UPN??? I hope Monique goes home, she is a cunty brat!! Anchal I heart you.

Ugly Betty

I can't believe it's only Tuesday? This week is going to suck ass. It just feels like it's taken forever. We massively cleaned our house, it took 3 days. Let's hope it stays that way.

So last week was the premiere of Ugly Betty, the American version of Yo soy, Betty la fea. I have to say I really enjoyed it. My favorite character has to be Betty's nephew. Holy crap, could he be any gayer????? He reminds me of when I was a little boy. I wasn't as image obsessed as he seems to be ("I don't want any flan, I'll get fat..."), but I was just as faggy (hello does anyone remember my Dolly Parton costume at age 10???). I'm curious to see how the rest of the series is gonna pan out. I'm hoping for more cameos by Salma Hayek.

I bought some new CDs the past week. The Fergie solo album...fuckin' love it!!! I've been a fan since she was on Kids Inc. and was a huge huge huge Wild Orchid fan. When she left to join BEP I was a little put off, but this solo album gave my fandom new hope.

The same can not be said about the new Paulina Rubio album. I can sum it up w/ one word (a long one at that)...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Holy shit is it boring! I'm a long time fan, and I have to say she hasn't done an album this bad since El tiempo es oro. WTF!?! The new Lucero album is ever better!

Alright my peeps I'm out.
