Yo quiero mis Sound Machine Headphones

11 Apr

Emilio Estefan is a name that stirs up good memories, admiration and a sense that Hispanics somos bien representados wherever he goes. Soy su fan!

I remember dancing to Miami Sound Machine and the Conga en las primeras fiestas que iba de la escuela back in the mid 80’s, and believe me when I tell you I can also lip sync to all of Gloria Estefan’s greatest hits. It’s nice to see los Estefan are always doing all sorts of creative things and trying out new ventures. 

Which leads me to this very cool product, the Sound Machine headphones,  just introduced yesterday at Hispanicize 2013 in Miami, the annual event for Latino Trendsetters and Newsmakers. Yes, even as we speak all sorts of blogueros y blogueras, social media mavens, brands, marketing folks, music peeps and film companies are converging for a week long party slash conference to discuss why los Latinos somos lo máximo. (Ni crean que no me quedé con las ganas de ir! Well, maybe next year.)

Mr. Estefan collaborated with Target and Monster headphones to develop these premium “high-performance, sonically superior” headphones which are available as of April 14th in two presentations: On Ear ($149.99) and Over Ear ($249.99). It seems they are a fabulous way to connect to your music, films and gadgets. Además, they come in a glossy purple color which I immediately loved. Purple lovers, you know who you are.

The lucky people attending Hispanicize had a chance to check them out at the launch party held by Target on Wednesday, over at the pool area of the Eden Roc hotel. They even had synchronized swimmers performing to Reik’s “Peligro” song (which I love, yay for los Reik de Mexicali!) and I hear it was a lot of fun.

So I’m intrigued and will probably stop by Target to test them soon and see if they’re worthy of a Miami Sound Machine Conga percussion, a ver si es cierto que ComeonshakeitbabydotheConga….

I’m also curious to see this other collaboration Mr. Estefan has with Target, called Emilio Estefan Picks, a selection of his favorite movies, music and books. Siempre me llama la atención saber lo que leen y ven la gente que es muy successful.

Les comparto estas fotos que me mandaron los de Target para compartir acerca del evento y de los headphones. Let’s check them out and see what we think.

Maybe it’ll finally replace my rinky dinky $10 cheap shots that I bought over at Big Lots, nomás para salir de apuros. I’m due for a nice pair of headphones soon.

Bravo Dreamers! Bravo President Obama!

15 Jun

Today is a good day if you are a young undocumented student in the USA and you were fighting for a chance to stay legally in the country you love, and the only country you know. Breaking news this morning! This is a bit from the New York Times:

U.S. to Stop Deporting Some Illegal Immigrants

By 

WASHINGTON — Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children will be able to obtain work permits and be safe from deportation under a new policy announced on Friday by the Obama administration

The policy, effective immediately, will apply to people who are currently under 30 years old, who arrived in the country before they turned 16 and have lived in the United States for five years. They must also have no criminal record, and have earned a high school diploma, remained in school or served in the military.

See the complete article here.

Congratulations to the Dreamers, and we realize that there is still so much more to do for them. Here’s how you can participate and support, through one of the major organizations fighting for them, Presente.org. I just received an email from one of its founders, Gaby Pacheco, and it urged us to keep fighting. This is from her email:

It would be easy to stop here and celebrate the President’s words, but we’re 1.2 million deportations past words at this point. We have to send the country a message that while we appreciate the President’s announcement today, we won’t stop fighting for change until we see it.

That’s why I need you to tell the President, Congress and other leaders in this nation that you stand with me, and millions of undocumented people who have become Americans, even if we don’t have papers that recognize us as such. If you tell them that you stand with us, you’ll be sending a message, and that you’ll continue to fight against every deportation. Tell them, now, and tell all your friends to do the same:

http://act.presente.org/sign/withdreamers

Go to Presente.org for more information.

So on that note, let’s keep up the fight for these kids. I personally know of several exemplary, smart, hard working, decent, and best all around kids who would love a chance at citizenship and who love this country just like any citizen born here. You would do anything to help them because they are the best of us, really.  As TIME Magazine said this week (bravo Time Magazine! This is the 2nd cover in 3 months dedicated to Immigration issues) “WE ARE AMERICANS…. Just not legally.”

It’s about time to make it happen for them and for the rest of the hard working, respectful immigrants who want to do things right and stay here legally.

Amazing cover by Time Magazine for the week of June 15, 2012. They probably just increased their Latino readership ten fold with all their new readers!!

Nice try, William Levy

22 May
20120522-234735.jpg

4 shots taken with the iPhone from the Season Finale of Dancing With the Stars on ABC. William Levy came in 3rd place.

Pues he didn’t win the disco ball trophy de Dancing With the Stars, pero como dicen por ahí: No gano pero como me divierto. Call me “wishy washy” pero…in the end, despite my earlier criticism, I ended up rooting for William Levy. So it was kind of disappointing to see him in 3rd place. Pero reconozco que le echó muchas ganas.

(De veras que sometimes ni yo me entiendo!)

Anywhoo, it’s just another reality show coming to and end. Which means, ahi vienen los Summer reruns.

Sofía Vergara proves Latinos are thriving in the new marketplace

14 Mar

It’s been a beautiful year so far for the lovely Ms. Sofia Vergara, and she is not shy in admitting she is turning 40 this summer.  Hey, it’s about time we all embraced that milestone.

Sofia Vergara on the cover for the April 2012 "InStyle" issue.

Take a look at her 2012 so far: Continued Hit TV Show on ABC: Check. Emmy Award for the show: Check. Modeling Contracts Galore: Check. Vanity Fair Oscar Party sitting next to Tom Ford: Check. Gigantic Times Square Ad: Check. Cover of the new InStyle for April: Check.

Not bad for la colombiana que conocemos desde hace muuucho, back cuando era más famosa por ser amiga de los famosos y por ser bonita. She’s come a long way and I don’t know about you, pero a mi me da mucho gusto. I guess at first we didn’t give her much credit, but she has proven to be a genuinely funny and talented actress. There, I said it. I don’t care if she turns out to be a diva like Salma or a little ditzy like Charo. She’s earned my respect. It takes a lot of guts and patience to make it big the way she’s made it in Hollywood and on Madison Avenue.

I read this article today on AdWeek and was impressed with how los big shot americanous en marketing view the advertising and branding opportunities que los latinos (y los latino “wannabes”) representan.

Of course this is not the discovery of the holy grail, but it’s always nice to hear, right?  There are many IMPORTANT people trailing our habits, tracking what we spend on, keeping an eye on who we like and trying to figure out what we will like in the future.

Here’s a clip of the story:

From the website AdWeek.com

“Old Brands, New Faces” by T.L. Stanley

Take a look at Sofia Vergara. Go ahead—everybody else is.

The Colombian bombshell is hard to miss these days: striking a pose on newsstands (Cosmopolitan, Shape), selling her fashion line at Kmart stores, hawking Diet Pepsi during the Super Bowl, and keeping us laughing out loud on ABC’s Emmy-winning Modern Family, TV’s top-rated comedy.

Vergara joins stars including Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Eva Longoria, Eva Mendes and Selena Gomez who constitute the face of the “now” America and to whom brands are turning to reach consumers across diverse and evolving cultural and demographic constituencies.

Vergara in particular is “a role model and a poster child for crossing over from Spanish-language media to mainstream U.S. success,” explains Rochelle Newman-Carrasco, a Hispanic marketing expert at the firm Walton|Isaacson in Los Angeles, referring to the star’s beginnings on telenovelas. “Almost no other Latina has done that, and she’s managed to become a powerhouse without ever forgetting who she is and where she came from. She didn’t shed her Hispanic-ness.”

Great Time Magazine cover this week: “Yo Decido”

23 Feb

Ya era hora que alguien lo dijera. Bravo Time Magazine. We love it. What a brilliant headline. I think it will catch on as a new mantra, along the lines of the always energetic but overused “Sí Se Puede.” (Para los mexicanos esto representa el amor/apoyo a la Selección Mexicana de Futbol solamente.)

“Yo Decido,” which for all my English speaking amigos, translates to “I Decide,” is a pretty strong statement. Yes, we have the power to make a difference.

I think this might be the first time that the magazine has a Spanish title on their cover and a mainstream media outlet declares the power of Latinos in the next elections. Look for it this week on your newsstand. I looked for it yesterday but it had not arrived.  It’s already making the rounds all over the place for the daring title and important subject matter.

Case in point: my 92 year old grandmother became a US Citizen last year and when they asked her why she wanted to become a citizen she said, “PARA TENER VOZ Y VOTO.” (“So I can have a voice and vote.”)

Here is the cover below and the link to the article online at Time.com “Why Latino Voter Will Swing the 2012 Election.”

From Time.com, the cover for the week of March 5, 2012.

New Spanish TV Network debuts in the fall: MundoFox

23 Jan

Big news in TV Land today…en Español!

According to a press release today by the AP, MUNDOFOX, a new Spanish broadcast television network is launching in the fall. It will be the Spanish version of FOX (owned by Rupert Murdoch, ya saben que no tiene la mejor presencia en los medios lately) and it will try to appeal to the Hispanic viewer. Ya ven como sí nos quieren mucho en este país y el español no se está acabando, como muchos creen.

Pues let me tell you one thing, Mundo Fox: lest you change your tone on politics and your own political agendas pushed by NewsCorp., I won’t be that tempted to watch. But if you have smart, modern and well produced shows that don’t feature morning tv hosts doing dance numbers with Mambo and ChaCha, or scripted sitcoms that don’t follow the recent fiasco of “Rob” (sorry Eugenio Derbez, I really wanted to like you on this show) then maybe that will lure us in.

They are partnering with los productores colombianos RCN, which made Betty La Fea (only like one of the best telenovelas EVER, which I used to watch religiously and blog about) among other smash hits. So it should be interesting to say the least.

Here’s the press release. Click to read. Let’s see what happens and how Telemundo and Univision react.

News Corp plans US Spanish-language broadcaster:

Wordless Weds: New stamps honoring Latino Music Legends

9 Nov

At the post office yesterday, loved these stamps: Selena, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Carmen Miranda, and Carlos Gardel. Nice way to adorn your regular mail, if you're still sending any.

Great article from the NYT on Immigration

3 Oct

Hey… it’s Monday.

Perdónenme el San Lunes but I just want to post a link to a great article I read this morning on the metro (I’m not done reading it todavía, but it’s great reporting as usual from the NYT and worth a read.)

Here comes 2012 and the elections and the never ending conversation/debate/issue that is Immigration. Brace yourselves, people. There’s more to come.

Esta semana voy a ver “The Latino List” on HBO

26 Sep

This week HBO premieres a new documentary that I’m excited to see. “The Latino List” presents 25 influential Latinos who’ve had an impact in society and who represent us in one way or another, in this day and age in the USA.

The movie has an interesting mix of personalities in all trades, from pop culture and music icons (Pitbull, los Estefan) to politics (Henry Cisneros) to actors (John Leguizamo, America Ferrara, the ubiquitous Eva Longoria) and other faces you’ll recognize. There are writers (Sandra Cisneros), media personalities (El Piolín, Eduardo Sotelo) and even Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor.

I’m also happy to see it because, earlier this year, the production company that produced this documentary contacted me and asked for a photo of the financial mentor Julie Stav  that I took a few years ago. It was during an event honoring accomplished women and Julie was part of that group. Me cayó super bien la Julie, y le tomé una foto que después puse en la reseña del evento aquí en este blog. (How they found it I don’t know, pero me dio mucho gusto that the producers wanted to include it.) I’m not sure my picture made the final cut, but I’m excited to see the documentary nevertheless. La próxima vez que vea a Ms. Stav, I’m going to have to tell her this story.

So here’s the synopsis below and if you have HBO, the documentary premieres this Weds. Sept 28 at 9pm on HBO Latino and Thursday, September 29 at 8 pm on HBO. No se la pierdan!

Oaxaca community thrives in Madera, California. (By way of the NYTimes)

3 Aug

It’s always nice when you see positive things being said about Mexican immigrants in the US, even though it’s also also a bit of a rarity these days.

So it’s very interesting to read that the New York Times published a feature article today that mentions, in an enthusiastic tone, some of the contributions of a community of Mexican people living in the US. In this case, it’s Oaxacan immigrants in the city of Madera, California.

This Oaxacan community has established itself right in the “mero ombligo de California” all the while keeping their strong working values and ethics, love of their culture and capacity to farm and produce healthy, organic crops.

So,  Muchas Gracias New York Times for alerting us about it. Sounds like a little field trip for me. Just reading it makes me want to go grocery shopping to this place.

You can read the article “Markets Evoke Memories of Mexico” by Patricia Leigh Brown HERE and see the fabulous photogallery by Jim Wilson HERE.

The NY Times story was published today, August 3, 2011.

Frivolous Friday Fun, puro chisme.

10 Jun

Es viernes, por fin. Yay!

Después de una semanita medio heavy, allow me to indulge in a little pop culture fix. Me puse a revisar mis online guilty pleasures y me encontré con varias cosas/happenings de esta semana:

1. Ricky Martin is back to his brunette ways, thank God! Remember his wild Guero phase? He was just messing with his God given beauty but somebody must’ve made him come to his senses.

This photo was taken on a trip to Buenos Aires, where he met with La Presidenta, Cristina Fernández. From People.com StarTracks today:

OK now Ricky, looking better. Don't go get all loco on us again with the blonde mullet. (Photo: People.com)

2. From Quien.com this week: Shakira wants us to know she’s all hot and heavy these days and just premiered her Rabiosa video/song which is very racy, to say the least. She’s a brunette flapper in a club and a pole dancer, with an emphasis on the pole dancer part….

I’m not gonna get all preachy y santurrona on you, but I don’t think I’m alone when I say I’ve lost all respect for her as an artist.  (Just saying!) Como puso alguien en el youtube “¿En donde quedó aquella artista que cantaba con la guitarra y componía buena música?” and “Congratulations on all your new fans that like your empty music.” Ouch! Some even wrote unflattering descriptions of her, the least of which is “es una vulgar,” pero eso sí, ya tiene more than 13 million hits su video! (And by the way, the song says “Featuring Pitbull” which is nowhere to be found on the video.)

Shakira and the pole. Really Shakira? There have to be other ways of feeling empowered as a woman...Super TACHA. (Foto from Quien.com)

3. Según People en Español.com, ahora resulta que Jenni Rivera está disculpándose por las últimas faltas de respeto a sus fans, tanto ella como las de su hermano. Yeah right…Cuéntenme una de vaqueros. A esta familia les encanta el escándalo. Finísimas personas, ellos.

From Peoplenespanol.com "Estoy apenada por lo que el público ve en estos videos."

Quibooole…Mr. Obama ya está hablando español

9 May

Mr. Obama habla buen español!!! Click on the video for a wonderful speech at the White House’s Cinco de Mayo Party by the President of the USA.

I guess he’s going to need to practice his Spanish more now that he’s going after the Latino vote in 2012. And it’s going to come in handy when he follows up on his promise of immigration reform and he deals with all the Hispanic leaders. (I have yet to believe it’s going to happen soon, pero quien sabe.)

Lovely and cute moment there when he lets everybody know that you don’t come between first lady Michelle Obama and her tamales. Doesn’t she look amazing? Que mujer tan guapa, de veras.

(Thanks April M. for the head’s up. I really enjoyed it.)

It’s Cinco de Mayo, the most “gringo” of Mexican holidays

5 May

Ready for a Margarita? It’s that time of year again, when the USA celebrates a Mexican historical event nobody in Mexico even remembers. (It’s NOT Mexican Independence Day, people, please!)

Happy Cinco de Mayo! The unofficial Mexican-est holiday in the US and the historic date nobody in Mexico cares for.

La Batalla de Puebla took place in 1862 and will be commemorated all across the USA with mariachi music and cheap margarita mix.  As I retweeted from Vanity Fair this morning: “Cinco de Mayo is Spanish for the day when every lame bar brings out the tacky decorations and jacks up the price of Corona and Cuervo.” And you want taquitos with that? Or some basic quesadillas con carne? All the chefs  came out with boring “mexican inspired” recipes this morning on the morning shows.

Salud Señores! Yo paso. I’d rather be at the sushi happy hour with a Sapporo and sashimi, thank you very much.

50 million Latinos and counting…

26 Mar

Puros Latinos. Just like the Census from 2010 says. (Photo from Fiesta Broadway 2010, by yours truly.)

Did you hear? Ya somos más, un montonal.

You probably didn’t need census results to know Hispanics in the USA are the largest minority, but this week’s news makes it more official. 50 million of us is a new milestone. At this rate, nos estamos multiplicando más rápido que cualquier otro ethnic minority (que de minority no le veo nada) en este país.

Analysts, experts, sociologists and politicians will all ponder exactly how this will affect everything from business and marketing strategies, political maps, social services, job creations, you name it. I guess it’s good to be in the news.

Here’s a link you may want to follow up. Link from KTLA in Los Angeles.

Sunday evening cafecito y “Killer Crónicas”

9 Jan

Después de una semana full of revelations, estoy disfrutando de un little downtime cafecito and a wonderful book I received from Susana Chavez-Silverman, a true Spanglish linguist and beautiful writer.

“Killer Crónicas” has me hooked and I’m barely on chapter 2. This book will serve as an early literary example of how Spanglish gradually evolved into a vibrant and energetic new language, pese a quien le pese.  I have to catch myself from gasping as I go through the pages, because this is what the voice in your Spanglish head sounds like (at least my inner voice) and she has captured it perfectly, even writing in accents from Madrid, Buenos Aires and Mexico. So very interesting indeed.

Says the LA Times: “A stirring memoir…practically a performance. Killer Crónicas is a testament to the matruring sense of global and pan-Latin citizenship being claimed by Chicanos and US born Latinos in the AmericanWest. Combine this with such innovation in language, and her book may be one day regarded as a refreshing turning point in Latino literature…”

Killer Cronicas, Bilingual Memories by Susana Chavez Silverman (University of Wisconsin Press, 2004) y un cafecito. The perfect late afternoon combo.

So far so good con el Latin Grammy. Baby I Like it!

11 Nov

45 minutes into the west coast feed of the Latin Grammys 2010 and I’m actually enjoying it. La verdad ni siquiera me acordaba y pensé verlo por un ratito, but I’m hooked. Acaba de salir el Enrique Iglesias and he put on a great show with a school band y dos raperos- say what you will about his empty calorie music, it’s actually fun. I just bought Baby I Like It on iTunes 20 seconds ago, right after his performance.

Hosting duties again fall upon la dueña herself, Lucero (muy guapa) and a very funny and irreverent Eugenio Derbez. He just pulled of a joke in Spanish that no one would’ve dared to say on tv. It was honestly borderline “ewwww!” and involved last names and bodily functions.

Placido Domingo, Paloma San Basilio, J-Lo and Marc Anthony in the front row (cada vez mas equis la J-Lo, pobrecita) and they are making for good people watching on tv. I’m actually enjoying this. Y eso que me encanta criticar a los artistas.

Pan de Muerto at your local supermarket

1 Nov

Ayer por la mañana fui de compras…y que me voy topando con el Pan de Muerto de Bimbo en mi mercadito local, el Big Saver.

Bimbo ahora vende el Pan de Muerto aqui en LA.

Para todos aquellos que celebramos el Dia de los Muertos, y parece que ahora se celebra más de este lado de la frontera, ver algo asi en el mercado nos da mucho gusto. Esta tradición tan original de Mexico empieza a intregrarse en el “psyche” de los latinos-gringos y por lo pronto la gente de marketing de Bimbo no se ha quedado atrás.

Oh Joy! Ya tenemos SCRABBLE EN ESPAÑOL

10 Oct

Ayer en el Barnes and Noble practicamente me desmayo del gusto y grito de la emoción al enterarme que tenemos Scrabble en Español. Lo pusieron en la mesita del “Hispanic Heritage Month” al lado de puros libros “latino minded” y algunos en español.

Que buena onda de los HASBRO, esta gente sí sabe.

"Goce de la diversión que le brinda el juego Scrabble. Acepte el reto de aprovechar al máximo las 7 letras para una acertada combinación de juego de palabras, competencia y diversión."

De qué manera les puedo explicar que ni siquiera tuve que pensarlo dos veces para comprarlo. Y bueno, alguien se preguntará si de verdad vale la pena comprar la versión en español cuando tienes el Scrabble de toda la vida. Pero sí vale la pena y créanme de veras que cuando ví que traía la Ñ me dio mucha felicidad. Y por si fuera poco, también nos dieron la LL. ¡Ni me acordaba de la LL!! Tendré que usarla mas seguido. Lo único que no tiene son acentos, pero como todas las letras son en MAYUSCULAS pues no nos vamos a fijar mucho en eso.

QUIBO??? Tan sólo por esta letra, la letra más representativa del espaÑol, vale la pena tener este Scrabble.

Además, soy de la idea de que cualquier cosa que convenza a las compañías “americanas” de que los latinos en Estados Unidos compramos, consumimos y leemos en español es bueno. Apoyemos la causa y el consumismo pues!

Para estrenar, invité a mi Mama Lilia a jugar. A sus 91 años tiene mejor vocabulario y creatividad que yo y nos divertimos mucho. Era la primera vez que ella jugaba y ahi quedamos mas o menos iguales. Claro que tengo que tomar en cuenta su comentario de “Pues está bueno el juego pero es más bien para cuando está muy frio y no puedes salir y se te antoja un chocolatito caliente, que no?”


¡Ya era hora! Premio Nobel de literatura para Vargas Llosa

7 Oct

Esta mañana fui feliz con la noticia de que Mario Vargas Llosa recibe el Premio Nobel de literatura. ¡Desde cuando que lo merecía! Muchas felicidades al escritor!

Para celebrar voy a releer “La tia Julia y el escribidor”. O tambien “Travesuras de la niña mala”. O la favorita de mi amigo el Chelo, “Quien mato a Palomino Molero?”, esta la voy a tener que sacar de la library.

La tia Julia y el escribidor. Hay que disfrutarla de nuevo! (Foto de amazon.com)

Aqui les dejo una breve bibliografía de uno de mis autores favoritos, por The UK Guardian. Hagan click!

Un SuperHero de carne y hueso. Thank you Victor Perez.

6 Oct

Victor Perez, an unemployed construction worker from Fresno, California is the hero of the week.

Did you hear why? Because he was a good samaritan when there are hardly any left, because he acted out in spite of fear and did the right thing, because he is latino and you hardly see good news about latinos in the USA. He rescued an abducted 8 year old girl all on his own and made sure the criminal was taken to justice. Gracias Victor!!
