Skip to main content goes mainstream

Congrats to my colleagues at and Laredospeaks among others for their frontpage publicity in the Laredo Morning Times' article on local blogs. Keyrose, of, has gone mainstream. Next month you will see him on the cover of GQ and RollingStone. He has hit the bigtime like George Jefferson. In all seriousness, sweet bread! I'm glad that the hard work of the local bloggers is getting noticed.

Keyrose and others were present at the screening of 80's movie, Eddie Macon's Run, over at Candela's Restuarant, this past Saturday. Due to urgent business matters, I was unable to be present, however, I heard the turnout was really good. Next time we have another screening I hope to be there for sure. I'll take a 12 pack of Schlitz. Any ideas for another Blogger's event?? I'm open to suggestions (I'm also open to donations jejeje.)

Yes, we will one day hear about KeyRose on E!'s "True Hollywood" specials: "The Rise and Fall of a Blogger: KeyRose and the Downward Spiral"

Heh heh.

It is cool the LMT did that article.

Muy Taco Bueno.

You too, DL

I was so proud of myself when I read the story in the LMT yesterday that I went out and got myself a red Ford Focus coupe at Easy Auto Credit.

The world was my oyster and I was taking all the red lights down Saunders.

From this point on, I'm taking life by the horns. Yeah, I'm going mainstream, but I'm doing it on my own terms. And you know what that means - NO SEATBELT!

My only fear will be that my newfound bravado will hurt my blogging responsibilities, and soon thereafter, I'll take to the bottle, or Tall Boy, as it were.

Give it a month and I'll be found hunched over the wheel of my car, passed out from an all-night bender. At sunrise, one of Laredo's Finest will take me into custody.

And as I'm telling the cop to "kiss my ass!" Univision will be there to shoot Exclusive Video.

The car will be worth nothing because the floorboard has been waterlogged with Natural Light, and the goat (don't ask) found in the back seat totally thrashed the upholstery.

I'll do a brief stint in stir; occupying my time by writing letters to the governor, asking for an early release. Blogging at this point is non-existent due to the fact that I have no access to WiFi.

I'll come out a broken man. A lesser man. With nothing, and nobody to call my own, except for a beaten up old coupe that's actually a hatchback.

The man and the car, at one point had their moment in the sun; all undone by arrogance, and short-sightedness.

A tiny flower creeping up from the pavement gives our hero hope. But he knows it'll never be the same.

Ha! Now THAT worth a blog post in itself.

But, if I may, let me offer a few corrections:

*Ford Focus coupe WITH Neon lights and custom rims at Easy Auto Credit.

*Forget the Tall Boys, it is all 40s for you, my friend.

*Yeah, you will be found hunched over the steering wheel, but no mention is made as to who was found in the passenger seat. Yes, one of Laredo's finest "street walkers" who, in fact, owned the goat you mentioned that was stashed in the back seat.

*And, as you are taken in, not only will you be yelling: "Kiss My Ass," but also screaming at the top of your lungs, "Don't you know who I am?!?"

*Likely you will not waste time with Gov. Perry, you will direct your letter writing campaign to Mayor Salinas, who, in turn, will tear them up after he remembers the less than flattering blog posts you authored.

*Finally, forget the old coupe waiting for you after doing time. It is bike time for you, Mr. Blogger.

By the time you reemerge, De Laredo will be the next victim. He is too arrogant to use La Sanbe's downfall as a cautionary tale...

Local Beauty Queen Arrest

The Laredo Morning Times seems to want a little web traffic on their ol' web page.  At least that's what I think when the arrest of a local "beauty queen" made it to the front page.  Oh, it was not on page 4-5, where the local arrests are usually noted, but on the top right hand corner.

A few months ago the local organ of publicity started publishing weekly mugshots on their webpage.  Generally speaking their more attractive women usually garner the most "web hits."  So, once Ms. Prieto-Falcon's mugshot (seen above) makes it to the album, I expect a new record.

Just saying.

Play-More (and other Urban Legends)

I have a friend who swears on his 1988 Fleer baseball card set, that way back, sometime in the mid 80s, there existed something called the Play-more. According to his vivid imagination, the Playmore was a cross between Putt-Putt golf and Disney's Epcott Center. Every time he starts to rant about how good things were in the 80s in Laredo (minus the unpaved streets), his eyes light up and a goofy smile fills his face (a goofier smile than usual).

Go carts, arcades, a skating rink, a movie theater, according to my buddy, this place was Laredo's version of Astroworld. However, apparently, you have to be over 33 to remember this lost haven of yesteryear. I only arrived in 1992 to Laredo, years after this place apparently vanished. So if anyone out there remembers this place, drop by and leave some comments. Pictures of this lost city would be great appreciated. I think its just a crazy sugar induced illusion that my buddy concocted in between his imaginary friends.

My Experience with Emilio (by Cindy)

My Experience with Emilio by Cindy (guest contributor)

The year was 1994.  I can clearly remember waiting anxiously to go with my parents to the Casa Blanca baile.  The main attraction…Stephanie Lynn, Xelencia, and none other than Emilio Navaira.  I was in love with these Tejano bands.  I knew all of the lyrics to all of their songs.  I didn’t care if I was going with my parents for I was a teeny bopper, of sorts. Instead of crushing over Jordan Knight (which is a whole other article) I was in love with Emilio!  All I could think of was….”Como Le Hare” to get a picture with him and his chubby counterpart, Raulito!
I remember always nagging my parents to go see these bands, especially Selena and La Mafia.  I would plead…”but mom…what if something tragic happens and they die?!  We have to go see them today!”  And of course my mom would try to explain to me logically that nothing was going to happen and that we would go see them, “Next time, mijita.”  Well, sadly, these tragic things do ha…
