Hola My Peeps! Welcome to Latinopia! Our videos this week are in Cinema Showcase and Art. We continuing with our commemoration of Memorial Day, with a final VOCES video documentary, this one edited by Soñia Escot on Erasmo López, a veteran of World War Two and of Korea. In Art, we visit with celebrated Chicana artist Linda Vallejo as she tells us about her shift from doing nudes to painting landscapes and we see an array of her new landscape at the Metro gallery in Los Angeles.
And this week we have a new REGULAR WEEKLY blog ZOMBIE MEX DIARIES. Check out Lazaro De La Tierra’s blog and you’ll see what it’s like to grow up as a zombie in the barrio–hey, its not easy being a double minority, being Mexican AND a zombie! Also this week we have another new episode in the adventures of Arnie and Porfi, this time the boys time travel from 1970s Los Angeles to 2012 Arizona and run into a sinister organization known as N.A.L.G.A.S.! And of course our favorite brainiac Sara Inés Calderón returns with another Thinking Latina blog–this time she takes on something we all know and practice–Spanglish!
And in Literature, we continue with our book reviews of the Classics of Latina Literature with Dr. Thelma Reyna’s review of the poetry collection Emplumada (1981) by Lorna Dee Cervantes.
Hay, púes, lots of good stuff on Latinopia so let’s get to it, nothing to it but to do it!
