Carlos Vives Live in Toronto | Concert Review

This article was written a year ago in my last blog, A Style Soiree. Facebook Memories reminded me of the event, which was one of the happiest days of my life.

The situation at the Mexico-USA border is out of control. Children have been separated from their families, and more than 2,000 have yet to be reunited.

From human rights, to the politics of FIFA, to Puerto Rico, and Childish Gambino’s latest single, and in my opinion, work of art, ‘This Is America’. Also, I’m back to making videos and sharing them, on YouTube, so make sure […]

Cinco De Mayo: You’re Probably Doing It Wrong

I never make a big deal about Cinco De Mayo. You may be thinking, “Why the hell not?”. It’s the perfect reason to have a margarita or take shots of tequila! You can wear a sombrero and make tacos! Right?… Not exactly. These are some of the reasons why you’re celebrating Cinco De Mayo all wrong. […]

Episode 13 | They’re Cancelled. Now What?

We hear the phrase “the’re cancelled” all the damn time. But what does it really mean? Is cancelling someone or something enough? We examine this concept through an example of a problematic song that was recently released. I dish out my honest opinions about what I now think of these artists and how BS the […]
