Nobody Is Paying Me for These Plugs

First, thanks to Emily and De for commenting on my post “Prepare for Impact.” It’s good to see that some people out there still like to hug.

Second, I have neglected to actively push some traffic toward the Fanatic’s friends. So I must rectify the situation.

Among the worthy sites on my blogroll, I want to point out Aqui magazine and TC Daily Planet, both of which I’ve had the privilege of writing for.

Also, Macon D runs the great blog Stuff White People Do, and Profe takes care of things at summerssandoval.com. Both sites deal with a lot of the issues I address here, and I recommend them highly.

In addition, check out Dennis Cass Wants You to Be More Awesome. Dennis is an impressive writer and all-around creative guru.

Third, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Turner Classic Movies is running a new series, Latino Images in Film, throughout May. Every Tuesday and Thursday, the network will air movies that address Hispanic themes, feature Latino actors, or just say something about how Hispanics have been portrayed on the big screen.

Yes, I know the month is half over, but you can still catch “The Mambo Kings” and “Lone Star,” two very good movies, among others. Or you can see “West Side Story,” if you can tolerate musicals (sorry, but I can’t).

In any case, enjoy the films, but try not to be freaked out by a very unglamorous J. Lo in “My Family.”

    Sounds interesting… Too bad I don’t have cable. I see they’ll be showing “La Bamba.” I was so surprised to find out that the guy who played Ritchie Valens (Lou Diamond Phillips) was technically more predominately “Asian.” Granted, Filipinos are kind of a amalgamation of all sorts of stuff.. But yeah. Surprised they’ll play “La Bamba” but not “Selena.” I enjoyed both of those movies.

    Thanks for the mention, Fanatic. Keep up the good work (by which I mean the good work you do, not the good work of plugging my site).
