Mom was telling me that she’ll never look at a handicapped person walking down the street the same way ever again. That’s probably true. That person is doing the best he or she can. He’s got some unique problems—like how do you poop?

Mom was telling me that she’ll never look at a handicapped person walking down the street the same way ever again. That’s probably true. That person is doing the best he or she can. He’s got some unique problems—like how do you poop? Ok, so lot’s of background on this one. When a person is […]

A second teaser trailer for the forthcoming Hunger Games sequel, Mockingjay Part 1, has been released.

I found the book painful to read and had to force myself to get through it, but the movie might be more entertaining.

This has confused me since I was little, especially watching a lot of UK TV (which is basically on the other end of the nudity/violence spectrum in a lot of ways).

I can understand ratings and whatever… knowing what your in for is a good thing, but beyond "make sure the rating is accurate", restrictions on what can/can't be said/shown/etc on TV/Movies/Whatever is just silly… isn't it?

Why ‘Hannibal’ Can Show a Man Feeding His Face to A Dog
Guidelines for sex and violence on TV are hilariously twisted. That’s why Hannibal can get away with gruesome, but can’t use sexual euphemisms.

This year I'm actually watching ESPN instead of Univision because the ESPN app works better on my phone. And the commentary has been pretty decent. Still, this is interesting.

La Copa, primer día

Hello, heartbreak!

My favorite teams don’t play till tomorrow, but today was just a small reminder of how infuriating this game can be. I don’t hide the fact that I’m not a fan of Brasil. Today was no exception. I was pulling for Croatia, and was surprised when they scored the first goal. Honestly, Brazil just looked nervous.

But then the referee started to mess things up. Many a good match has been ruined by shoddy calls, and today was no exception. It downright ruined the whole match for me. It makes me dread what’s to come, and then I wonder – isn’t it about time FIFA allowed an instant replay option? I forsee this happening in the future. Unfortunately, it’s not in time for this World Cup.

OMG!!  Was that Zuko?  Ahhh

 I love this show!   #Korra

Countdown to mayhem

World Cup starts tomorrow!!

For years I tried to analyze and understand why I get so freakishly excited about this event. I was never a soccer fan per se growing up. My mom was a huge of the Mexican Liga team, America, and I can still remember all those times she hollered when they played. It was nuts.

In elementary, I was used as a goalkeeper. Until I got hit. Fast moving balls and I don’t mix.

But then there was this one time. Every summer I went to Mexico and stayed with my grandparents. One morning, at my aunt’s house, my cousin turned on the tv to watch a soccer match. It was Brazil v. Argentina. Diego Maradona was playing and making epic passes to Canillas. Rocio and I both chose to support Argentina while my aunts chose Brazil. And the match was amazing! I had never seen anything that epic, and when Argentina won, I was hooked.

After that epic match, I decided I would love futbol. I have seen all the World Cup matches since, and tomorrow will be no exception.
