    029. Cuba Solo Para Turistas por Jorge Luis Seco

    in Writing

    Entrevista al autor de "Cuba Solo Para Turistas", Jorge Luis Seco conversando con Angélica Salomón.


    “Cuba:sólo para turistas”  es una novela dura, erótica pero sobre todo real. Narra la historia de una niña que sale de Cuba a los seis años, con su madre, rumbo a Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, y deja atrás a su padre y una hermana mayor que se resiste a salir del país.


    Sólo llegar a la isla, comienza a sentir cosas que nunca pensó que iba a sentir. Su vida da un enorme giro.  Se va a ir enfrentado a realidades que nunca pudo imaginar que le iban a sucede.


    La novela es sensual, caliente, atrevida. Empieza duramente pero si la sigues leyendo te irá atrapando en sus líneas y llegará el momento en que no puedas soltarla. La vida de mi pueblo, no es lo que conoce el turista que va a Cuba pensando en pasarla bien y en que sus mujeres son calientes y dispuestas a disfrutar por unos dólares, la vida en mi país es mucho más y trato de reflejar algo de esa vida en mi novela.


    Hablo de amor en todas sus manifestaciones. Hablo de religión afro cubana, parte de mi cultura y hablo del sentir a plenitud. Una novela que estoy seguro que te cautivará, te hará poner rojo, te hará llorar, sentir lo que sienten sus personajes, que no tienen nombres propios. Algo que a todos llama la atención.


    Espero que la leas y por favor me dejes saber lo que piensas. Siempre me pondré en contacto con quien me de su opinión.


    Esto es en sí “Cuba:sólo para turistas”

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Cuba Gooding & Dan Siegel!

    in Music

    It's unbelievable how things work sometimes with this show.  As much as the atttempt is made to focus on one artist, another arrives and has to be involved in the same show - because time is of the essence :)  When the caliber of two artists like THIS is combined, it's absolute magic!


    Dan Siegel stops by at the top of the hour - one p.m. Eastern - and he'll talk about his career (the resume is staggering!) and his new CD called "Indigo."  Dan is a pianist of rare vision, with 20 solo albums and countless credits to his name: producing, arranging, composing and performing.  He has had #1 success in Jazz and is known globally.  You've heard his work via TV and film, though you might not have known that it was Dan who created the music.  WHO has played with him and WHAT he has played would take us another page here.  Those beautifully rooted beginnings in the great Northwest have paid off handsomely for our first guest.  He'll count his blessings with us :)


    In the next 30 minutes of "Hybrid Jazz", Cuba Gooding visits and there may be an occasion when your host here might a word in edgewise ;)  He LOVES to talk!  And does he ever have a career (and a half) to discuss.  From the start of his journey with The Main Ingredient to the amazing success of his children, Cuba will never run out of topics.  What you may not know: The Main Ingredient was the first African-American group to be signed to the new R & B division of RCA Records - decades ago.  When Donald McPherson of the group passed away in 1971, Cuba took his place - and took the band to a new level.  "Everybody Plays the Fool" went Gold in 1972.  "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely" and "Happiness Is Just Around the Bend" - oh heck, YOU remember!  Let's catch up with Cuba and find out where that bend has taken him!

In 2005 he co-authored, with Teo Babun,  The Cuban Revolution: Years of Promise, a photographic history of Fidel Castro's war against Fulgencio Batista, Castro's assumption of power, and his establishment of a  Stalinist dictatorship in Cuba.

Book II, Freedom Betrayed, was released in January 2014. Book III, On Freedom's Shores, will be released in mid-2014

    Cuba wants what? - Wasserman Shultz need real mental health!

    in Politics

     


    Hr1  Did ISIS really use chemical weapons against Kurds? Oh, don't worry, U.S. is looking into it... rrriiiight...


    Xander Gibb says political incorrectness is tearing America apart. No topic is safe tonight... LGBT, PDA, trans violence, and Margaret Sanger. 


    Hr2   Holding over Xander Gibb into the 2nd hour! Are some gays discriminated against? Yes. But not everyone. Stop looking at everything like it's automatically discrimination.


    Some people will say literally ANYTHING to get attention!!! GEEZ! Rosie O'Donnell lowers the bar on low class.


    American embassy opens in Cuba... remind me again what the U.S. gets in this deal?


    Hr3  ISIS using Christians as bargaining chips and currency.


    Chris Matthews asked Debbie Wasserman Schultz what the difference between Democrats and socialists is. She couldn't or wouldn't answer it. So, CampusReform man on the street asks millennials the same question. Think they know?


    Trigger warnings are hurting mental health on campuses. What are we teaching our next generation? Teaching vs. coddling.


    Target bows to pressure and goes gender neutral in children's department. How many people will still be shopping there?


    Cuba is asking for reparations.


     


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
