"dime si te causo una revolución"

at work i listen to a variety of internet radio, with kcrw being a daily check in. last week julieta venegas showed up to do a performance, and i was all about it.

as i'm going to see her tonight in oakland, i thought i'd share the video of that performance.

also, it's adorable that she drank the califas water that has suddenly caused a lot of people to come down with a case of the behbehs. at least she's reading books like "my mother wears combat boots." QFC.

really really?

seriously, this arizona stuff has gotten way out of hand. being from a state that everyone puts through the shitter, i do have some sympathy for the people of arizona, but my goodness...the change which you guys have tried to put into effect within the past two weeks has been pretty fucking amazing.

wow. just wow.

it's so ridiculous i don't even want to really comment on it. so i'll post some more uke love from my favorite chilean valley girl, pilar diaz, who has some thoughts on this subject matter.

this is her new video for "ilegal en estyle." the song is a probably a couple of years old by now, but definitely very timely for the silly (illegal) nonsense that is going on in arizona.

Ilegal En Estyle

Yo no cruzo la frontera con mis tenis marca brinca me llevan al norte
En avión sin bigotes en tur bus, no a pata
No correr
No correr

Ilegal En Estyle

Aunque sea una persona de ultima moda
La gente me persigue por otra cosa,
Nado en la piscina, no en el río
Es un frío y todo lo que es tuyo, es mío
Lo que es tuyo, es mío
Lo que es tuyo, es mío
Lo que es mío, es tuyo

Otra realidad, ser un ilegal

um, did yall see that calaca on the back of her ride? raaaaad! and yah, so is the song.

hearts y halos y todo y erreting.
