Soy quizá Norteño. Soy quizá Tejano. No sé quizá quién soy!

It never fails.

If I am laying down, happy and serene,   my mind often goes  here and here and here and here and  here .

Please see this gem of a  film if you can.  And check out la reina de las malandrinas, Jenni Rivera.

Some things never leave you. Some things always give pleasure.

Treasure them.  Protect them.  Return to them.

P.O.V./PBS 2008 Season Preview

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Please do me a favor and look at a preview of POV’s extraordinary 21st season. If any of the films really grab you, more detailed information and trailers and broadcast times are available here.

The entire season schedule can also be downloaded or saved. You could hardly say that any of the 21 amazing seasons of Public Televsion’s most important showcase for docuimentary films were better than any other.

But 2008 is really breathtaking.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I am watching Natalia Almada’s “Al Otro Lado” (POV’s 19th Season) for the 20th time so I can enjoy the incomparable footage of La Malandrina Jenni Rivera and Los Tigres del Norte!

Anybody know when Los Tigres are coming to New York? And do I have make a trip to my hometown LA to see Jenni? The last time I tried to buy tickets for Los Tigres, they were being scalped at $350 – $500.

L.A. is actually not such a bad idea. Perhaps I’ll post some Jenni Rivera music at some point so you can see why, when push came to shove and I was little under the weather this spring, Jenni and Los Tigres were there for me.

¿Quién sabe? ¿Soy quizá un Norteño judío?
