Under a Rock

That’s where I feel I’ve been the past week. Hubster and I have been so busy moving into our new apartment we’ve been totally out of the loop as far as all things media, music and mayhem-related. This is also the explanation for the lack of posts this weeks. But we’re all moved in (sort of) and back to blogging.

Here are two things we missed:

Part one of CNN’s Latino in America premiered last night. Part two is on tonight 9 p.m. EST. By 2050, the U.S. Latino population is expected to nearly triple. In this special report Soledad O’Brien explores how Latinos are reshaping our communities and culture and forcing a nation of immigrants to rediscover what it means to be an American.

New York Times magazine has written an in-depth piece on the new movie “Precious,” which is based on the novel “Push” by the African-American poet and writer known as Sapphire.

From the Times website:

“Precious,” the harrowing story of a 350-pound illiterate teenage girl who is pregnant for the second time by her father and horribly abused by her mother, is shot in an almost-documentary style interspersed with fantasy sequences. (It opens Nov. 6.) Like most independent films, it is character-driven, and at its heart is a spirit of understanding. When Precious’s plight lands her in a special school, she blossoms: the audience’s initial rejection of Precious, even repulsion at the sight of her, slowly gives way to a kind of identification.

Edd will have update you all on urban music front soon.



  1. Have you read the book? I’m wondering whether to watch the movie or read the book first.
