A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. PR Pride Never Wanes …. it’s ALWAYS there …. “!!

FOREVER IN MY HEART

You can take a Puerto Rican out of the country.

You can live far away from home.

Distance is but a number.

You can never take the ‘Puerto Rican’ out of a Puerto Rican.

Always in my heart!

‘Boricua hasta en la luna!’

I would be ‘Boricua’ even if I lived in the Moon!

FARE THEE WELL

“I guess it’s going to have to hurt, I guess I’m going to have to cry, and let go of some things I’ve loved to get to the other side
I guess it’s going to break me down, like falling when you try to fly,
Sad but sometimes moving on with the rest of your life starts with goodbye.”

Carrie Fisher had had enough of the debate over General Leia’s physical appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Carrie Fisher Fires Back at ‘Star Wars’ Age-Shamers

‘My Body Hasn’t Aged as Well as I Have’

The 59-year-old (at the time) actress’ looks have been the topic of much scrutiny in the wake of the latest installment in the legendary space saga, because the world is an ugly place and most Internet trolls would rather harass her for getting older than question why Harrison Ford continues to wear a single stud earring well into his seventies.

“My BODY hasn’t aged as well as I have,” Fisher added in her tweet. “Blow us.”

TRIBUTE

Ellen DeGeneres paid tribute to Carrie Fisher

Wednesday, January 3

Carrie died in December after suffering a heart attack

DeGeneres, who had known Fisher for years and had frequently hosted her on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, remembered her late friend through clips of Fisher’s past appearances on the show.

“Before I go, I want to say something about my friend, Carrie Fisher,”

DeGeneres said toward the end of the show.

“I knew her for a long time. She’s been on the show many times, and the last time was just a month ago. And I loved when she was here. She made me laugh so hard. She was smart, she was funny, she was hilariously honest about herself and the world around her.”

DeGeneres then showed clips of Fisher joking on the show about her life, career and relationship with her mother, Debbie Reynolds, who died the day after Fisher.

‘Como La Flor’ …. “Postmodern Jukebox …. Vintage Selena Tribute …. “!!

~COMO LA FLOR~

A Postmodern Jukebox Tribute to Selena ft. Mayre Martinez

Latin American Idol Mayre Martinez joined us to pay tribute to Selena in the very first Postmodern Jukebox video recorded entirely in Spanish!

Here’s our version of “Como La Flor”.

Mayre has both a phenomenal talent and an amazing work ethic – since winning Latin American Idol, she’s gone on to release 3 albums, toured extensively with her own band, and launch her own singing academy, recognized as the best in her native Venezuela.

When I approached her about being the first Postmodern Jukebox singer to cover a popular Spanish song, she came up with the idea to do a PMJ tribute to Selena, the iconic singer credited with introducing Tejano music to a mainstream audience.

Our version of “Como La Flor” blends the well-known melody with the classic string-driven sounds of 1960’s country and soul for an altogether new sound.

Of course, Mayre’s vocals tell the story of heartbreak like only a world-class vocalist can.

ARMED WHITE GUYS VERSUS PEACEFUL NATIVES

Oh, the irony!

For 41 days, we were ‘treated’ to full coverage of this standoff.

There was ‘invasion’ of federal property, there were guns involved, there was confrontation.

Where is the media now?

This is spreading through the power of social media.

Armed men, led by Bundy brothers, take over federal building in rural Oregon

A group of armed anti-government activists remained encamped at a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon one evening in January 2016, vowing to occupy the outpost for years to protest the federal government’s treatment of a pair of local ranchers set to report to prison on a Monday.

The occupation of a portion of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, about 30 miles southeast of Burns, Ore., began after a small group of men broke off from a much larger march and rally held one Saturday evening.

To start the day …. “Dixie Chicks – Not Ready To Make Nice …. “!!


Dix10

~~August 18, 2016~~ 

REMEMBER WHEN?

The Dixie Chicks were an up and coming country, bluegrass roots and rock ’n’ roll music band who were really taking off as musical performers.

That all changed when a simple comment appeared to insult the then president of the United States.

Many fans, radio stations, individuals turned against them because of a single comment.

The lead singer was exercising her “freedom of speech”.

The aftermath was  very negative including death threats towards them and their families.

Not Ready to Make Nice” is one of my favorite songs from the Taking the Long Way album.

It expresses still their feelings some time after “the incident”.

I can barely being to imagine how they felt.

Yet …. they are back!!!

GoldSwirl

The Chicks, whose bluegrass roots and rock ’n’ roll spirit broke down country music barriers and made them the best-selling female band of all time in the United States, were in the middle of a lengthy hiatus. The trio had not been heard from since scaling back a 2006 tour that suffered from continuing reverberations from “the incident”:

a remark the singer Natalie Maines had made about President George W. Bush a few years earlier.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

GoldSwirl

Not Ready to Make Nice” is a song co-written and performed by American country music band Dixie Chicks.

It was released in June 2006 as the first single from the band’s seventh studio album, Taking the Long Way. It remains the band’s biggest hit in the US to date. The song was written by Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire, Emily Robison, and Dan Wilson.

“Not Ready To Make Nice”

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said
Can’t you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

What it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting …

How fickle are we as a society?

How short is our memory?

Is there an element of an attention span deficit?

I wonder.

At least, a young, extremely talented, young lady, HEATHER ROONEY, grasped the idea happily and worked her wonder art.

There’s still hope, I think.

GROW OLD WITH ME

This scene shows Ellie and Carl.

Their relationship is presented as time passes starting whey they married until to Ellie’s death.

Very sad scene yet a favorite one.

If only the characters where changed …. and showed two ladies … it would describe my relationship.

This shows that there is no difference.

I see a parallel between Carl and Ellie’s love story and my very own.

Love and commitment is between souls and beings.

Once you find it, never let go.

Grow old with me, MJ.

REMEMBER WHEN 

(partial lyrics)

Remember when I was young and so were you
and time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when

Remember when we vowed the vows
and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when ….

Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won’t be sad, we’ll be glad
For all the life we’ve had
And we’ll remember when …
