LALO DELGADO, RICKY LUV VIDEO, ARNI AND PORFI, ANGELA’S PHOTO, ZOMBIE MEX DIARIES AND MORE! Sorry for the inconvenience Latinopians but due to technical difficulties Latinopia was off-lione all day yesterday, Monday, January 27th. But we’re back with a great week of Latinopia videos and blogs. This week Ricardo Lira Acuña returns with his Ricky Luv video blog. This week Ricardo explores life at the office in his original video “Office is” Check out this cool video, very hep.
Our other video this week is a rare archival video of renowned Chicano poet, the late great Abelardo “Lalo” Delgado. Pues, your Tia Tenopia never met Don Lalo, but my Tio Braulio remembers him well. “Mija,” he tells me, “Lalo Delgado opened the 1972 La Raza Unida political convention with a rousing poem that brought all of us delegates to our feet!” Mi Tio tells me he was one of the early driving forces behind Chicano activism and poetry. Anyway, check out this cool video and you’ll see that Lalo’s poem “Disunity” has much to say to us today.
And of course, Sergio Hernández is back with another Arni and Porfi cartoon, This time the barrio primos comment on the recent Justin Bieber controversy. Not to be missed. And also not to be missed is another twist in the on-going war between the Neza and Oñate zombies in Lazaro De La Tierra’s Zzombie Mex Diaries. And don’t miss Angela Ortiz’s latest Photo of the Week.
Great stuff this week on Latinopia!
