Re: Another finding.

I've been exploring the channel that host the album that originated this post, and has several 60's and 70's mexican albums that were unknown to me... Quite refreshing the ones that I've heard so far.

Another finding.

To put things into context, a friend tried to identify it with Shazam and couldn't. This is that rare.

Rock from Tijuana. Pájaro Alberto y Sacrosaurio.

Re: The End is Near

I remember the first time I tried to do serious work on a cell phone. I got myself a Palm Treo 680 in January 2007, and in a field visit to supervise Satellite Link setups in Costa Rica, instead of writing down on paper my notes or taking out the Laptop I brought with me, I typed most of the time in...

Re: Happy Turkey Day!

¿Eh? Hueyxolotl fest is in a month, in Christmas... ¿Are you refering to cooking the bird in our chocolatey sauce we call "mole" (from nahuatl "molli" = sauce)? That was two months ago, for Independence day, along with Nogada Chiles. Anyway happy Pilgrim settlement day to you.

¿Remember I was complaining two months ago that we were hovering the 0 in the Celsius scale? About a month ago the weather switched to daily minimums of 15 and maximums of 25, also Celsius... We have been in our version of spring for a month already.
