THE PUERTO RICAN EXPERIENCE

The Indian, Spanish and African races came together on the island of Puerto Rico, contributing their blood and traditions to the formation of the Puerto Rican culture.

The original inhabitants of Puerto Rico at the time of the Spanish conquest were the Taíno and Carib Indian-tribes.

We are young and old, we are women and men, we are professionals and blue collar workers, we are farmers and doctors, we are architects and farmers, we are actors and painters.

We are a bit of everything!!

‘I’ll Never Love Again’ …. “💫 A Star is Born …. Bradley Cooper and Stephani Germanotta 💫 …. “!!


~~October 22, 2018~~ 

‘A STAR IS BORN’

~RELEASE OF I’LL NEVER LOVE AGAIN~

Both Bradley and Lady Gaga performed impeccably.

The movie ends with this song.

I don’t want to give  the end away but her ‘husband’ in the movie wrote this song for her, Ally.

Fully recommend it!

This song is simply incredible.

The story around it is worth watching the film.

~~Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper release ‘I’ll Never Love Again’ music video~~

I’ll Never Love Again” was one of the numbers they most wanted to keep in check until audiences had a chance to experience it in theaters.

The song appears in the last scene of the movie, and without giving too much away for those who have yet to see it, it is performed in two different interlocking settings, both by Cooper and Gaga together at a piano and by Gaga alone on stage. 

Cooper and Gaga famously sang all of their parts live during the making of the film, something Cooper insisted on, and “I’ll Never Love Again” is no exception.

‘A STAR IS BORN’

FINALLY

I went to the movies yesterday and saw this film.

I was an ardent fan of the 1976 version in which Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson played the lead roles.

I wasn’t disappointed with this current version.

Both Bradley and Lady Gaga performed impeccably. 

Fully recommend it!

This song is simply incredible. The story around it is worth watching the film.

I JUST KISSED THE TEACHER

MAMMA MIA

 I can’t tell you how much the movie Mamma Mia means to me.

I’ve lost counts of the many time I went to watch on the big screen. I even went to the ‘sing-a-long’ version!

ABBA’s music takes me to a very happy time in my young life.

I bought the DVD and every so often watch it at home again.

After the movie, there was a theater production in town which I also saw. After the movie, although the play as good, it was kinda of like a let-down.

Maybe I should’ve seen the theater production first!

Anyway, I’m so excited that a Mamma Mia 2 is coming out this summer.

You can’t bet I’ll be there!

It seems that Meryl Streep won’t be in the movie (that’s a bummer) but Cher comes in to play the grandma! 

Check the video out.

The first song off of the upcoming Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again movie, due out in theaters in July, has just been released

When I Kissed the Teacher” is an ABBA deep cut from 1976 album Arrival; old school fans of the Swedish pop superstars will know it, but everyone else should quickly catch on to the signature upbeat vibe and playful singalong lyrics. And, yes, it’s about kissing a teacher. The accompanying video shows off Cinderella actress Lily James – who’s starring in the movie sequel as a young Donna – singing and dancing enthusiastically through a school graduation ceremony, backed up by the other two ladies of the singing group the Dynamos.

ABBA’s own Benny Andersson is credited with producing and arranging the movie’s soundtrack, so you know they’re sticking to the group’s roots. But fans also received good news last week, when ABBA announced they’ve recorded two brand-new songs set for release soon, their first new music in over three decades.

Céline Dion …. Lyrics: “How Does a Moment Last Forever …. Beauty and the Beast …. “!!

CELINE AND THE BEAST

I finally saw ‘Beauty and the Beast’.

It was an enthralling, amazing and heartwarming movie.

It was a warm surprise to hear the song while the credits rolled.

Céline was singing!

It was even better then.

What would Beauty and the Beast be without Céline Dion?

The songbird contributed the 1991 animated film’s soundtrack, singing the pop version of the title track with Peabo Bryson.

(Angela Lansbury recorded the film version).

Bryson and Dion’s duet won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe, reaching No. 9 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

With the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast premiering March 17 (starring Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Dan Stevens and Emma Watson), veteran composer Alan Menken asked Dion to sing another original ballad.

The song, “How Does a Moment Last Forever,” plays over the end titles.

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

This song soothes my raw feelings. It calms me, it centers me.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Hope you enjoy this one!

Buster is an eternal optimist – okay, maybe a bit of a scoundrel – who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.

Saturday Night Live: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Cold Open …. “With 72 hours remaining until Election Day …. “!!


lastsnl

~~November 6, 2016~~ 

LAST TIME TOGETHER

(we hope)

SNL has simply become one of the best shows to portray, through humor and satire, the reality of these presidential candidates.

The debates are over.

There are three days before election day is upon us.

Kate McKinnon is amazing.

She has been ‘playing’ Hillary for a while.

Alec Baldwin joined the cast and plays ‘the donald’.

Laughter is the best medicine, I’ve always said.

That’s the only way you can go through this incredibly crazy election cycle.

I loved it.

I have to say, I will miss these ‘encounters’.

Hope you enjoy!

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump break the 4th wall in ‘SNL’ cold open

Saturday Night Live took its last possible opportunity to skewer the election once more, bringing back Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and having Kate McKinnon reprise her role as Hillary Clinton.

The two took to a CNN talk show for perhaps one of the most uncomfortably real cold opens in recent memory.

Tackling everything from Clinton’s latest email debacle to Trump’s miraculous ability to sidestep controversy in a news cycle increasingly dominated by negative press for Clinton, the skit also managed to bring some legitimate surprises to the table.

“Don’t you guys hate feeling like this?” Baldwin says, breaking character.

The two soon make a break for it, departing from their skit and running through the streets of Times Square to the tune of Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up.”
Perhaps more important than making you life, cry, cringe, and want to run away, SNL wants you to vote.

“We can’t tell you who to vote for, but we all get to choose what kind of country we want to live in,” McKinnon concludes.

In its final cold open before Tuesday’s presidential election, Saturday Night Livebrought in veteran castmember Cecily Strongas CNN’s Erin Burnett to moderate a conversation between the two major party nominees.

What started as a regular cold open with Republican nominee Donald Trump portrayed by Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon‘s Hillary Clinton ended in unusual fashion: the two sketch actors breaking the fourth wall and addressing the crowd directly.
