LOVE IN THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE.
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! Latinopianos, help your Tia out! I went out again with you-know-who and now he’s getting serio. Serio but SERIO. Check this out, he’s talking about how much he’d like to have children, and how I would make SUCH a great mother to his children, and how I could “take care of the home front” while he pursued his career. Y esto y el otro. Now don’t get me wrong. I think motherhood is noble and important but maybe I’m not just ready for it just now. In any case, when the time comes I want to do motherhood on an equal basis. Did he even ask about my career plans? About what I wanted to do with MY life that was not just an extension of HIS career? Por favor! And yet otherwise he’s so considerate and always such a gentleman. Hay, y tan guapo tambien. Your Tia is really angustiada! For real! I welcome any ideas from you sisters out there as to what I should do next.
Meanwhile, back in the world of dependable Latinopia.com, we have another week of great videos and a new book review in our series on the classics of Latino literature. And–ojo pelado!– if you haven’t read these classics, you really should! Just visit the Book Reviews page under Literature. This week Dr. Thelma Reyna reviews “Love In the War Years” (hay, that’s how I sometimes feel with you-know-who!) written by Cherríe Moraga.
Our videos this week are a new Latino music sound, Cuñao. Julio Montero is the main guy behind Cuñao. He was born in Ecuador and raised in New York, and now resides in Los Angeles. His song writing is pretty pesao itself so give a listen. More to come from him later this year on Latinopia! And we finish off our two-parter on the historic literary phenomenon of the 60s and 70s, Con Safos. In this week’s video we learn how the group of Latino writers and artists went from a purely literary magazine to one filled with political content as well.
And, of course, please check out Thinking Latina with Sara Inés Calderon. This week Sara is reflecting on Latino stereotypes and asking the question…are we them? Our Zombie Mex Diaries returns with Zombie boy telling us about a major discovery in his young life. Poochi! I’ll just leave it there! And don’t miss the latest in the new revived and rejuvenated Adventures of Arnie and Porfi cartoon strip by el maestro, Sergio Hernández.
All of this and more on Latinopa.com!
Your Tia Tenopia
