Mi Swing Es Tropical

I got tired of waiting for Boricua Boy to make a new post, so I’m making one. I thought I’d share my favorite song from the Apple iPod campaign, Mi Swing Es Tropical by Quantic & Nickodemus. I bought this one on iTunes a while ago but got to hear the other day and it’s just infectious. No way you can listen to it and not dance. I found a link on YouTube to the video. The sound and video quality is not that good but the video is very funny....

FAST FIVE to Puerto Rico

But it will be Brazil in the fifth Fast & Furious. By Jarrod Sarafin     May 27, 2010 | Source: ComingSoon It seems the fifth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise will be taking place outside the U.S. ComingSoon is reporting they’ve been alerted via some Puerto Rico sources that Fast Five will be shot primarily in that commonwealth from July to August. Before the Rican Maniacs show a bit of pride though, it should be noted that they won’t be represented in the film itself. The website reports the streets and neighborhoods are being served to look like Brazil, which is where the film’s story will take place. The fifth adventure will star Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, TJ Hassan, Tego Calderon and Don Omar. “Fast” director Justin Lin is coming back to helm, based on a story by Chris Morgan. Plot Concept: In the film, Dom (Diesel) and Brian (Walker) are fugitives being pursued by relentless lawmen. Johnson will likely be one of those lawmen after them. Fast Five will hit theaters June 10,...

Protected: You Know You’re Pretty Famous When…

Since I’m in here phantom blogging anyway… Did anyone see the Justice Sonia Sotomayor skit during Weekend Update on SNL this past weekend. I couldn’t decide if it was funny or not, but I did laugh in a couple of spots but probably not the right ones. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think. [update: the link to this video has been deleted from the internet. I will keep checking to see if it ever gets posted again.] PS: Sonia also gets a mention in the new Wanda Sykes DVD, “I’ma Be Me”. Wanda says that because Supreme Court Judges are Justices for life, Sonia should show up on the first day dressed in a Puerto Rican flag. The DVD’s hilarious. Watch for the Sonia Sotomayor jokes, but stay for the bikini wax story. 🙂 PPSS: This is getting crazy. I’m watching George Lopez’s “Tall, Dark and Chicano” and he opens his show with a shout out and jokes honoring Justice Sotomayor. He also calls out some of the people who voted against her confirmation and rightly suggests that you don’t vote for them come re-election time. Welcome to the big...

Calling All Amateur Astronomers: Help Comb Arecibo Data for Gems

Einstein@Home is one of the world’s largest public computing projects, with more than 200,000 people donating time on their own computers to mine gravitational wave data for the tell-tale signs of pulsars. Now, Einstein@Home will begin searching Arecibo radio data to find binary systems consisting of the most extreme objects in the universe: a spinning neutron star orbiting another neutron star or a black hole. And the project needs even more public participation. Today, Bruce Allen, director of the Einstein@Home project, and Jim Cordes, of Cornell University, announced that the Einstein@Home project is beginning to analyze data taken by the PALFA Consortium at the Arecibo Observatory in...
