Vicente Fernandez - El corrido de Hillary Clinton

Vicente Fernandez's work has earned him two Grammy Awards, eight Latin Grammy Awards, fourteen Lo Nuestro Awards, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He has sold over 50 million copies worldwide, making him one of the best-selling regional Mexican artists of all time.

He wrote this "Corrido" for Hillary Clinton:



He closes the video saying:

"Mrs Clinton, I am here to ask you that when you reach the presidency you not forget all my Mexican and Latin American brothers. Receive a warm embrace, and I will come visit you when you you are installed in the White House."

The designing Mind - Datamation 1985. Still relevant today.

Abstract: Imagination is the key ingredient that makes systems designers
successful. A designer must juggle the ability to visualize pictures, changing focal
points until the image is suitable for the designer and the situation. It is this
balancing process, in which choices are evaluated, that will produce a distinctive
design. Two qualities that are important in a designer are the characteristics to
simplify a problem and to comprehend a problem from a user's point of view. The
interview process is one method to discover whether a designer has the
necessary characteristics. Rating an individual by past accomplishments can
provide an unclear picture since it not evident what part the person played in the
creative process. The interviewee's perception of past work is valuable and can
be obtained by asking what was the most grave mishap and what was the most
enjoyable project for which they were responsible.

September 16, Mexican Independence Day

Celebrating with Huapango de Moncayo, Alondra conducting.


As I watched last night's debate I noticed that Trump did not smile.

I think he should smile more. That would make him more presidential.

A Degüello - Slit Throat. See you on Taco Tuesday, Trump.

Listen carefully until the end, before you draw judgment.

My definition of boredom.

When trying to define boredom, I always go back to my first semester in college, in chemistry class.

Having taken chemistry in high school, in Mexico, I was bored out of my gourd listening to the instructor drill on and on and on, on stuff I already knew.

So I turned it into a sport. I was using a fountain pen to write my notes, and I had two colors of cartridges; red and blue. So I wrote my notes, switching back and forth between the two ink colors watching the ink change from red to purple to blue and then back to purple and red.

But this wasn't enough. No.

I decided to write my notes in Spanish while the lecture droned on in English. Then, for extra points, to transliterate the Spanish notes into the Greek alphabet, and write them from right to left.

All this, while the lecture was going on, in real time.

That's my favorite definition of boredom.

What's yours?
