Hola Chulas y Chulos. Time for your weekly dose of The Flying Chancla Report. I’ve thrown my chancla across the internets to find pieces that you will give a flying chancla about and boy, oh boy are you gonna dig these chanclazos!
Check it out:
- My mind has been blown! Why? Because apparently, Jennifer Lopez and that infamous green Versace dress are the reason Google Images was invented. Qué, qué?! Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt wrote a piece for Project Syndicate where he states, “after the 2000 Grammy Awards, where Jennifer Lopez wore a green dress that, well, caught the world’s attention. At the time, it was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: JLo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born.”
- I’m a big fan of “Orange Is the New Black” and I can’t wait to get my binge watching on when Season 3 premieres on Netflix on June 12. In the meantime check out the trailer they just put out! You’ve gotta see Big Boo’s makeover.
Speaking of entertaining entertainment, did you hear that Diego Luna will be playing Giacomo Casanova —Yes, yes, THAT Casanova!— in a pilot for Amazon? Hmm, I don’t know about you, but I’m interested in Diego Luna history I think I’ll be checking that out for educational purposes.
- There is an Indiegogo campaign that is set to start on April 16, to help fund a project being called, “Selena the One”. What the heck is this project about? Here’s the announcement posted on the Selena Facebook page: “Acrovirt, LLC announces the launch of Selena The One, the development of a walking, talking, singing, and dancing, digital embodiment of iconic singer, Selena… ‘Selena The One’ will release new songs and videos, will collaborate with current hit artists, and aims to go on tour in 2018.” Am I the only one who finds this more than a bit distasteful and like just another way to make money off of a dead superstar? You know that if this works out a Jenny Rivera version will be next.Ayayaya, people.
That’s all my flying chancla has time for this week. Remember, spread love, not chanclazos!
