Sihanoukville Gets Good Press At Last

Sihanoukville Gets Good Press At Last | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
I don t know how many of my posts have been inspired by idiotic articles written by lazy journalists who spend an afternoon at Ochheuteal beach and go back to have their stories treated like gospel by their readers.

Via Rob Schneider
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Haven't read the article but I'm always interested in SV.  I wasn't aware it wasn't getting good press.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

This is one of the gratifying things about living abroad although perhaps i n some countries more than others. This particular exchange was in Bangkok's Chinatown and, in case you don't know it, it's pretty well accepted that if you want to get anything done in Thailand... you go to a Chinese businessman. They get stuff done.

 

I don't think there is much of a Chinese business community in Colombia, where I am now, but you do have these unexpected encounters with people who you have honest if brief man-to-man conversations with. I've had several with taxi drivers which in itself that unusual. Taxi drivers come in all types... usually friendly and pretty good at dealing with people when they want too. But the idea of having them with somebody in a foreign country just goes to show you how much alike everybody in the world is.

 

Scott, here in this video, is a good man.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

This is hilarious. If you've ever seen a group of kids (usually girls if they're younger or Brit rugby or soccer fans if they're older) getting into the spirit of song...this is the way it starts. First one...then everybody else thinks, "Hell yeah...! I feel like singing too!"

I think Huskys are cool anyway.

I thought this was a very good movie. In some ways it almost bordered on 'cheesy' but still it was enjoyable. Why? Because it was about 'seeing the future' and 'love'. Interesting combination of elements, I thought.

Airbnb in Cuba Is a Reality: Start Your Bookings Now

Airbnb in Cuba Is a Reality: Start Your Bookings Now | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it

wanderingsalsero's insight:

I suppose some of the Miami-based salseros and casineros have already established their own 'trade' and travel-routes with Cuba but dancers in other parts of the US probably have not. So, this is going to be a hot item for them. It'll probably take a while for studio owners and professional dancers and teachers to work out their own programs for taking groups to Cuba but... I'll bet they will. And I think it'll be a really big deal when it happens.

Learn How This Family Grows 6,000 Lbs Of Food on Just 1/10th Acre | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
wanderingsalsero's insight:

This looks very interesting. If I had a 'home' I'd be interested in doing something like this... although probably not on this scale. But I love veggies (and the idea of having free eggs) and it's a fact that most restaurants simply don't serve enough good vegetable dishes. Notice their dinner table in this video too...and the non-electric devices (like the blender) they use.

You Can Turn A $2000 Shipping Container Into An Epic Off-Grid Home

You Can Turn A $2000 Shipping Container Into An Epic Off-Grid Home | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
A luxury home doesn’t always necessarily mean thousands of square footage, towering great rooms and gilded toilets. Take these homes for example: to begin building one of these epic houses, all you need is $2,000. That $2,000 will buy you a shipping container. What you do with that shipping container… well, that’s completely up to you. Some creative people have found a way to transform this rudimentary “room” with metal siding into luxury housing that blows us away. These homes are epic.

Shia–Sunni relations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shia-Sunni relations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Over the years, Sunni-Shia relations have been marked by both cooperation and conflict. Sectarian violence persists to this day from Pakistan to Yemen and is a major element of friction throughout the Middle East.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

Funny world we live in.... NWO going wild trying to enslave everybody, Sunni and Shiites trying to kill each other plus everybody else, but Grooveshark.com still has a great selection of world music (like Rosana, singing 'Nada de Nada' which I'm listening to right now in Barranquilla, Colombia) still has great music in spite of their totally fucked-up new user interface. Sounds like Monty Python in real life.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

I only very generally understood what they were saying here but still, it was very enjoyable. It was enjoyable for several reasons... not the least of which was that they started out apparently outside (somewhere in Brazil I think) but it started raining. Not to be thwarted in their original purpose to do an interview, they went to 'Plan B'....in the guy's car and I suspect that made it an even better interview than it would have otherwise been.

 

Because.... she was sitting in the back seat and didn't have to look at the interviewer as she answered the questions. That meant that her mental energy was focused on the words and not any visual distractions. Since she is a singer, my suspicion is that she's very aurally oriented.

 

One thing was for sure though...she really lives her art...music and singing. This was one of those situations where you could sense the passion in what she was saying even if you didn't know exactly what the words meant..... I do suppose it helps that I'm an amateur musician myself so I understood a lot of the basic ideas she was talking about.

 

Great interview...highly worth watching even if you don't speak the language. I think they talking mostly in Spanish but I got the impression that the subtitles on the video are in Portuguese.

I absolutely LOVE this style of tasty cha-cha and I don't know why clubs don't play more of it. 99% of the clubs and DJ's seem to think every has to be at 20,000 RPM all the friggin' time and I think it's so ridiculous. I've also been surprised to notice that nobody I've met or seen here in Barranquilla seems to know how to cha-cha.

From a few of this ladies' songs and this duo she did, I can tell that this Buika gal has immense 'class'. Somebody should use one of those video aggregators (e.g. Huzzaz) and lace together a series of her videos. I think it would go viral.

top fado singers - Google Search | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I'd be willing to bet that anybody who loves music would be fascinated with this page. Look up on the top, pick any one of those names, and plug them into Grooveshark and listen to the artist. I'm listening to Amalia Rodrigues now. She's commonly regarded at the Queen of 'Fado' style. I think she's now decease too...and Mariza has taken over the 'queen' title. 


Fado is a beautiful style... almost impossible to imagine until you've heard it. In my mind, its similar to the style known as 'morna' although I've never had the benefit of talking to somebody who really understands the genre to find out for sure.

 

Ana Moura is great too.

A Free Press For A Free People Since 1997
wanderingsalsero's insight:

This is funny. The Muslim baker-guy saying, "No...no... I don't want it." Which really means, 'Are you crazy! Fuck-off!!'

 

Which...he has every right to say any way he wants to say it. The commentator here makes the real issue perfectly clear and I'm glad somebody finally is. I find it strange that it takes Muslims, in a traditionally Christian country, to have the balls to stand up against what even 'Nature' says is wrong.

 

Guy don't fuck each other....period. Not only is it immoral. It's just plain stupid.

 

I get the feeling that 'the right' is starting to wake up though and I think it's going to be interesting to see where this battle goes. There are, after all, more of us than them.

Look at this guitarist's fingers as he pulls those incredible sounds out of that piece of wood and strings. Every chord has a different fingering and even that can be varied by the way the fingers are used. God's voice has ultimate power but I've always admired how string players can pull such emotion and power out of strings and wood.
