Milk in Vienna to appear on CarrotHead soundtrack

The local Laredo band, Milk in Vienna, has agreed to have one of their songs appear on our short film. The song that will appear during the final credits is titled, "It ain't love" and it can be found on their debut EP, "Open Fire!".

MIV jumped on the chance of having their awesome music heard by countless hundreds of people who will watch and enjoy (maybe even vomit) our much anticipated short flick. CarrotHead promises to be the best movie since Rosemary's Baby (or at least the best movie since The Pod People from Idaho). Production is still underway and key film sequences are currently undergoing redesigns that have pushed back the film's debut to sometime around early September. But don't fret. The world-class cast that we have assembled is pouring out their heart into the project and it will be extremely evident in the final finished product.

Once complete, we will be hosting a red-carpet, invitation only, fancy smanshy, rented-tux only premier, complete with Presidente brandy for everyone. Cuz hey, that's just how no-name Laredo film makers roll. So keep your eyes shut and your ears folded in anticipation of more news from the movie that is sure to have all of Laredo shaking their heads in embarrassment and 'unbelief'.

There is even talk of having 80's B-movie scream queen Linnea Quigley do a cameo appearance because after all she is the best actress of her generation (Her movie, 1981's Don't Go Near the Park, was the best movie eeveer!) Curiously, her agent has not returned our phone calls, but we won't sweat the small stuff, for we have plan B in case Miss Quigley is "unavailable due to previous contract agreements". If she fails to come through, then Lina Santos, the 80's Mexican C-movie hottie star can fill in just nicely. So, changuitos and keep your eyes shut.

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…
