Happy New Years and Feliz Navidad to all you Latinopians! Your Tia is just a wee bit cruda this week from all of that partying and New Years revelry. No, I didn’t make it to Times Square this year. Hay, standing up for 12 hours straight and they won’t let you get to a restroom? Olvidate!
But great news, Latinopians. This week marks one full year of Latinopia being on-line and your Tia thought we would celebrate by posting our THREE MOST POPULAR LATINOPIA VIDEOS OF 2011 AS VOTED AND VIEWED BY YOU! And, as they say in Hollywood, the envelope please…yes, the top three most viewed Latinopia videos were in literature, music and art. Topping the list is José Montoya reading his classic Chicano poem, “El Louie,” next is Flaco Jimenez, showing off his wide range of musical stylings and another most viewed video was the profile of our friend, mentor, and visionary art innovator, Gilbert “Magu” Lujan who passed away in July. These are all videos that are never dated. If you haven’t seen them before, you have a treat in store. If you have, you’ll find they still deliver. And that’s why people keep coming back time and again.
Also be sure to check out the January Events. We’ll be updating the January Events as the month progresses.
What’s that? Did I make a New Years resolution? Yes, indeed I did. No, its not getting more things done, or more exercise, or losing weight (Hey, what are you saying about your Tia?!) No, my New Years Resolution is just to spend more time enjoying and appreciating the company of my familia and my many friends. Life is short and we must make the best of it. So here’s wishing each and every one of you Latinopians health, happiness and prosperity in 2012!
OOXX Tia Tenopia
