La vida con Cristina
Avoid the mindless munching
trap.
By Cristina Blackwell
[email protected]
Sometimes the stretch between
lunch and dinner can seem forever,
and all you need is a little pick-meup to hold you over. But don’t even
think about grabbing those 100-calorie
snack packs you see on the supermarket shelves.
A recent study found that when
people eat from portion-controlled
snack packs, they tend to think less
about what they’re eating and eat
more of it, when compared to people
who are given full-sized packs of the
same food. Think of it as snacking
complacency-you’re so reassured
that your portions are limited, that
you end up overdoing it. Talk about
a diet disaster.
That’s why it’s important to implement your own portion control. Check
out this list of healthy snacks, and
how much you can eat without breaking the 100-calorie barrier. The more
you think about it, the less mindless
munching you’ll do. Now that’s
comforting!

I have MAN[y] Issues
“Anything they can do we can do
better…in the Kitchen”
By Dennis M. Ayotte Jr.
[email protected]
A year ago, I was an expert at
making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, master of the Foreman Grill
and made the best Ramen noodle
casserole, yes casserole.
I admit, I was proud of my above
average skills for making PB&J
sandwiches and my recipe for Ramen
noodle casserole, but I was the poster
child for what not to eat. Growing up,
my father wasn’t much of a cook.
Granted he cooked during the holidays, but still he was more of a “let’s
order a pizza and call it night” kind of
guy. So, eventually I grew older and
settled for what the dollar menus had
to offer which led to furthering my
kitchen illiteracy.
Entering college I figured I’d
have girlfriends who could cook
and would pick up some ideas—
big mistake. The kitchen is where
women once ruled for ages, but the
tides haven’t turned in favor of men
they’ve completely receded (no, not
because of global warming and Al
Gore). It’s because women are more
independent and nowadays a man
needs to know how to cook. Its 2010
and frozen burritos and chicken pot
pies won’t cut it anymore.
Nine months ago, I had this epiphany and decided to step up my game
in the kitchen. The first day I went
to grocery store, I had no list, no
clue how to cook, and yet I was
determined to figure it out. Parting
with my trusty Foreman grill was
hard but the ability to cook food that
was healthy and great-tasting was
my goal.
My first few trips to the grocery
store and cooking for myself ended
with bland-tasting food. My fridge
would fill up with stuff that would
reach its expiration far before I knew
what to do with it. I decided then that
a grocery list was always a must. If
not I’d end up walking out of the store
spending more than anticipated and
food that looked good at the time.
Second, I would (roughly) map
out a meal plan for the week this way
I wasn’t over shopping or buying
things that weren’t food—like the
change sorter I once bought—what
was I thinking? I wasn’t, but at least
my coins are neatly sorted.
Check weekly ads and find produce and meats that are on sale. Tailor
your meal plan around those items
to save money. After that I began
to drop pounds and show signs of a
young (thinner) Emeril. I never used
a single cookbook. Most of my ideas
came from cooking shows I watched
and good old Google.
Then BAM! Nine months later
I’m ready to try out for the Next
Food Network Star. I never knew
the power of fresh cracked black
pepper, basil leaves and cumin. Or,
the tastiness of vegetables and fruits
like squash, onions, mushrooms, bananas, nectarines and plums. Now, I
have a sense of pride and comfort that
I’ve come up with my own signature
dishes like spicy pork tacos topped
with feta cheese and red leaf lettuce
or my cranberry coconut chicken
salad with green onions, walnuts and
my own secret ingredient. Finding
things I liked that were healthy was
crucial. I had more failed attempts
at cooking than Lindsay Lohan has
failed drug test. Some meals were
just awful, yet others were amazing.
It took practice, but like I said I’m on
the Food Network’s radar.
My new found forte has keep my
beer gut and love handles at bay, and
the fact I can invite a girl over and
cook her my own braised tomatillo
chicken followed up with chocolate
chip ice cream cookie sandwiches for
desert that I made scores huge points.
Being a good cook only adds to
your overall awesomeness, but it
also shows you are knowledgeable
in an area where women usually rule.
Anything they can do, we can do or at
least attempt too. If all else fails email
me, and I will send you my recipe for
my Ramen noodle casserole.
“La Planta” echa raíces
Por Ana Cristina González
Su música ha recorrido el mundo
entero y ha pasado por varias generaciones. Originario de Piedras Negras,
Coahuila, Jorge Guevara ha sido sin
duda alguna, un gran ejemplo para la
sociedad. Se dio a conocer por el tema
“La Planta”, la cual interpretaba con
en el grupo Caos, lo cual le permitió
más delante formar parte de Elefante.
La Prensa de San Antonio tuvo la
oportunidad de disfrutar de una cálida
conversación con Guevara, no solamente sobre el éxito que ha ganado
con el paso de los años, sino también
de la satisfacción que ha llevado en su
vida personal, de la cual se sabe muy
poco. En exclusiva, el gran compositor y ex vocalista de Caos y Elefante,
abrió las puertas de su privacidad.
Jorge lleva alrededor de diez meses
viviendo en San Antonio y comenta
que fue el destino quien lo guió.
“Yo viví por diez años en el D.F.
pues mi intensión era irme a Los
Ángeles, pero me estacioné aquí por
la cercanía a la familia y amigos”,
comentó.
Organizando sus planes a corto
plazo y dándose cuenta de las grandes
oportunidades que el mercado latino
podría traerle, Guevara optó por tomarse un descanso para iniciar con su
nuevo disco, el que planea terminar
el año entrante.
El vocalista tiene varios planes a
mediano plazo, y desea con ansias
que la gente los disfrute pronto.
“Proyecto de Amor”, resulta ser un
disco que se podrá disfrutar en toda
América para los inmigrantes, es
un proyecto en el cual el cantante
participa en dos de las canciones.
Por otro lado, en México estará
sonando una canción escrita por el
cantante en todas las pantallas del
cine con el tema “Del Amor Nace la
Vista” con el objetivo primordial de
recaudar fondos para aquellos que
vea “La Planta” pág 11-E

Picks of the Week
“Feast” (Unrated)
“Feast” is one of my guiltypleasure movies, and it’s about
time that an unrated, director’s
cut of this 2005 low-budget
horror movie gets its release.
“Feast” was made as a part
of the Ben Affleck/Matt Damon reality series “Project
Greenlight” and features Judah Friedlander (“30 Rock”),
Krista Allen (“Emmanuelle in
Space”) and legendary cowboy
actor Clu Gulager as members
of a ragtag group of seedy bar
patrons who are attacked one
night by bloodthirsty beasties.
The gory effects are much
better than you’d think they’d
be, considering the paltry $1
million budget, and the performances are deliciously overthe-top. Features include audio
commentary, outtakes and a
making-of featurette.
“Jacob’s Ladder” (R)
If you enjoyed “Inception,”
then you owe it to yourself to
watch this 1990 psychological
thriller starring Tim Robbins.
Robbins stars as Jacob Singer, a
Vietnam War veteran who suf-
Action and reaction,
ebb and flow, trial and
error, change - this is
the rhythm of living.
Out of our
over-confidence,
fear; out of our fear,
clearer vision, fresh
hope. And out of hope,
progress.

fers from post-traumatic stress

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Dastan,

Time. Based on a video game that
was popular about 10 years ago,
“Prince of Persia: The Sands of

popcorn flick that has a
few fun moments, but is ultimately a pretty forgettable film

Grab The Popcorn! ¡Se casó Jenni Rivera!

Movie: “Ip Man” DVD 2008
Rating: R (Violence)
Studio: Beijing Shenshi
Where I Saw It: Home
Okay, it’s time I reviewed a
movie for the hardcore action fans
out there. Over the last couple of
weeks, I’ve been telling you about
several films that were lacking in
the testosterone area. This week
that all changes… in a big way.
Now, since I feel actions movies that are currently at the theater
are made mostly for young teens,
I thought I’d go back a few years
to a fantastic movie you may have
missed, “Ip Man.”
First of all, you may have missed
this movie because it had a limited
release here in the U.S. What you
may not know, is that it stars one
of the biggest martial arts action
figures, Donnie Yen (“Hero,”
“Blade II”).
Something else you may not be
aware of is that the movie is based
on the real-life story of the legendary Wing-Chun master, Ip Man, for
whom the movie is named after.
Lastly, to tie it all together, Ip Man
was a teacher to none other than
the one and only, Bruce Lee. Yes,
THE Bruce Lee.
The movie is set in World War
II, specifically, during the period
of time when Japan invaded China.
This was a time of great struggle
for the Chinese people. The Japanese were ruthless and treated the
Chinese with unrelenting hatred
and violence. It was during this
amazingly difficult era that one
man rose up to give an entire
country hope; this unlikely hero
was Ip Man.
Ip Man is credited with mastering and cultivating the art of Wing
Chun, a martial arts system origi-
nally invented by a woman and the
same one that Bruce Lee practiced.
Now, I know most men reading this
may have just made a strange face.
A martial art invented by a woman?
Don’t dismiss it so quickly.
Wing Chun is very brutal when
used by a true master and this
movie shows some of the most
amazing fighting sequences I have
ever seen, in any martial arts film!
I am not exaggerating when I say
that I can watch this movie over
and over if I am in the mood for
action.
On top of it all, it is truly a magnetic film most everyone will find
deeply moving. It’s simply about a
man who fights oppression, fights
to defend his honor and the honor
of those around him, and one who
is ultimately an inspiration to millions – and still is.
“Ip Man” is an incredibly entertaining movie. In case you are
wondering, the DVD gives you
the option to listen it in English
as well so there are no excuses if
you normally don’t watch foreign
films. And yes, it’s been added to
my DVD collection.
So, is it good? Watch it and you
decide!

La Diva de la Banda le dio el sí
al beisbolista Esteban Loaiza; su
vestido fue diseñado por Eduardo
Lucero, y a la boda asistieron
Gloria Trevi, Mariana Seoane y
Joan Sebastian, entre otros.
Especial para La Prensa
En una de las bodas más anticipadas en el medio artístico,
la cantante de música regional
mexicana, Jenni Rivera le dio
el sí al beisbolista mexicano
Esteban Loaiza durante una
emotiva ceremonia que arrancó
tanto lágrimas como risas entre
cientos de invitados.
Rodeados por sus familiares,
amigos y allegados –unas 800
personas en total– una radiante
y sonriente Rivera y un elegante y sereno Loaiza juraron
amarse hasta que la muerte los
separe en una ceremonia al aire
libre en el Hummingbird Nest
Ranch de Simi Valley, CA, que
duró una hora y fue oficiada
por el hermano de la Diva de la
Banda, el pastor Pedro Rivera.
“Es un privilegio para mí,
como pastor, poder estar aquí
enfrente de todos ustedes y hacerles esta pregunta a Esteban y
a Jenni: ¿Vienen ustedes a este
lugar de su propia voluntad?”
dijo el oficiante. “¿Nadie los
forzó a venir? ¿Los padres no
los forzaron a casarse? ¿No es
porque Jenni está embarazada?”
Entre las risas de los invitados y novios, Rivera –ataviada
con un vestido del diseñador
mexicano Eduardo Lucero, el
cual resaltaba sus curvas– levantó la mano y con el índice
señaló su negativa. “Entonces
vamos a darle gracias a Dios y
comenzar esta preciosa ceremonia”, rezó Pedro Rivera.
Y así fue, precioso y a veces
conmovedor para los novios,
el cortejo e invitados, como
Joan Sebastian, José Manuel
Figueroa, Mario Quintero,
Diana Reyes, Vicky y Marisol
Terrazas, Tito El Bambino,
Gloria Trevi, Mariana Seoane, Charytín Goyco, Larry
Hernández y Raúl de Molina,
entre otros, disfrutaron de tan
significativo evento.
Al finalizar la ceremonia
religiosa en el rancho estilo español, la celebración se trasladó
a una inmensa carpa blanca en
los predios decorada con miles
de rosas blancas y amarillas,
arañas suspendidas del techo
y una gigantesca pista de baile
con las iniciales de los novios
que se mantuvo llena, casi hasta
el amanecer. “¡Estoy feliz!”,
dijo la novia mientras Loaiza

“Hottest Show on Earth” hits S.A.: You’ve
never seen anything like KISS before
By Cristina Blackwell
[email protected]
Legendary rockers KISS are back
in support of their newest album,
“Sonic Boom” with a tour they’re
modestly calling, The Hottest Show
on Earth, which will hit our city
Sunday, September 19 at the AT&T
Center.
The boys are back with a tour
that is bigger than ever and they’re
attracting a new generation of fans
performing such classics as “Detroit
Rock City” and “Rock and Roll All
Nite” as well as hits they haven’t
played in the U.S. in many years.
Seeing KISS in concert will not
only result in the time of your life, it
will also make you feel good about
yourself. The band is donating $1
from each ticket sold to the U.S.
Armed Forces’ Wounded Warriors
Project, an organization that helps
rehabilitate our heroes from the
Afghanistan and Iraq wars.
La Prensa caught up with KISS
drummer, Eric Singer aka “CATMAN,” and lead guitarist Tommy
Thayer to discuss all about the infamous band, Gene’s crazy tongue,
and what you can expect at this
one-of-a-kind show.
LP: What can San Antonio look
forward to with this concert?
Tommy: You don’t have to like
the band to enjoy the show. Once
you see the first 15 minutes, it’s hard
not to be moved by it. It’s a very
impressive, over-the-top show. It’s
totally different from other concerts
out there. We put so much time,
money and dedication into the show,
making sure it’s special and unique.
Eric: It is probably the biggest
show that we have ever done with
visual and screens and pyro. It is
a big undertaking to take this tour
around the country. If you haven’t
seen KISS before, then you’re going
to see something you’ve never seen
before. I’m not afraid of going out
on a limb and say nobody has ever
seen anything like KISS before. I
know for a fact –it’s just the way it is.
And it’s not to say that it’s all smoke
and mirrors because there is the substance of the music as well. I am not
saying this because I am biased and
in the band, but everyone must see a
KISS show in their life. Because it’s
like going to see one of those unique
things in your life, like the Statue of
Liberty in New York or going to the
Grand Canyon or Disneyland. And
you know what? Maybe you may not
have liked KISS when you walked
in the door, but you’re going to like
KISS when you walk out.
LP: You’re exactly right, even
“non-KISS-fans” go to your concerts and it’s because you guys
are timeless! So what’s the secret
behind such legendary success?
Tommy: The secret to timeless
appeal is sticking to your roots and
what you love about rock and roll
from the very first time you ever
heard it when you were a kid, and
not fall in trends or what the latest
bands are doing or what’s popular
and all that kind of stuff. You need
to stick to your guns and what you
loved about rock and roll when you
first listened to it. Do that and it will
have a timeless quality to it. I think
music for the most part, works in
that way.
Eric: I think part of it is that we
work hard. I mean, literally, we
really take our time in everything
we do and make sure it’s all done
perfect. The one thing I always
admire about our band is that we’re
always trying to improve and make
it bigger and better. We’re always
trying to make a bigger visual spectacle. That’s what we’re known for
and putting on a big show. I always
say it is like rock and roll meets the
circus. It is about being entertainers
and being entertained.
LP: Tell us about your newest
album “Sonic Boom.”
Tommy: The album came out last
October and it’s the first record that
KISS has done in 11 years so it’s really a milestone record. We had a lot
to prove because the last record was
kind of mediocre and it really didn’t
come together very well. In this record we worked very hard and what
was interesting about it was that we
didn’t have any record companies
or management people or agents
or anybody giving us direction so it
was just us four. We would literally
go to each other’s houses and work
on songs, rehearse them and record
them. No one heard the record until it
was finished except the four of us, so
it was a very pure, organic approach.
LP: How do you feel about the
extravagant costumes and crazy
make-up? Is it still tough getting
used to?
Eric: It’s very empowering.
When there’s makeup involved,
we each take on a new persona or
character. The beauty of wearing a
costume and makeup like that gives
you the ability to be anything you
want and it doesn’t have to mean it’s
“you” because you’re in disguise.
LP: People tend to think musicians are flawless. Can you recall
any embarrassing moments?
Eric: We go through embarrassing, silly moments all the time. I
mean, let’s face it, we’re humans! A
couple weeks ago I went out to sing
‘Beth.’ All of a sudden I start to feel
something in my boot. I don’t ususee KISS pg 12-E

A woman’s shape never looked so good: eliminating
trouble spots without plasitc surgery
Special to La Prensa
Leonisa is more than meets the
eye when it comes to seamless
technology in compression shapewear. The best-selling compression shapewear in Latin America
emerges as the highly efficient and
functional must have shapewear in

to become an afterthought when
it comes to redesigning the body.
Leonisa compression shapewear
goes far beyond expectations of
the average shapewear. Alone, Leonisa body shapers hug a woman’s
frame defining the waistline and
flattening the tummy. Unbinding,
the shapewear combines the perfect blend of advanced powernet,
creating a “lipo-transportation”
effect that contours the body,
re-distributing and eliminating
fat. The lipo-transportation is an
effective solution for problem
areas distributing collected fat,
where it’s not wanted, to other
areas where it is needed, creating
a smoother appearance for an all
over attractive figure.
By slipping on Leonisa, you’ll
produce similar liposuction results, but without surgery, and
look as if you’ve shed pounds
overnight. With continuous wearing you’ll eliminate fat and slim
inches off the waistline, while
diminishing bra bulge and reducing cellulite. Whether it’s comfort,
style, confidence or sexiness a
woman craves in her choice of
lingerie, Leonisa has her covered
in all the right places.

design and cutting-edge trends,
paired with the company’s desire
to maintain comfort, exceptional
quality and value, has made it the

fashion styles in lingerie. Made

machinery, most advanced fibers

apparel.
Leonisa also encompasses the
Latin spirit, and aims to capture
Latin and Central America’s flavor

desire for sultry curves within
every woman. The company’s collections range from fun, loud and
colorful to sleek, chic and comfortable. The most recent collection
the Perfect Shaping compression
shapewear line, consists of Leonisa’s most popular styles in the
shapewear category. The line offers a comfortable way for women
to slim down with the perfect blend
of advanced powernet and microfiber, contouring the body to reveal
an overall glamorous figure.
Ideal for new moms desiring to
snap back into shape or surgical
recovery patients needing comfort and security, Leonisa’s body
shapers control problem areas,
secure the back and comfortably
hug the body. Leonisa’s use of
powernet weaving allows the body
to breathe and offers high resistance and durability. Continuous
wear alone will reduce waist size,
release toxins and tighten the abdomen bringing men and women
closer to their fitness goals. The
antibacterial microfiber leaves
you feeling cool and fresh, even
in humid conditions.
Layer Leonisa under any outfit
for ideal shaping with multi-way
straps for versatile tops and a front
closure that let’s you slide it on
with ease. Each woman’s shapewear piece offers a comfortable
opening for a needed trip to the
ladies room. Men can tone their
upper body under a tee, dress shirt
or maximize a workout with

Festeje las fiestas patrias con Pedro Infante
Por Domingo Banda
Fotos Cortesía
Uno de los íconos de la cultura
mexicana aun después de muerto,
sigue vivo en los corazones de todos
los que le admiran. Él es Pedro Infante, un talentoso actor que cautivó,
y sigue cautivando a generaciones
enteras con su talento de actor y
cantante.
A Don Ismael Rodríguez Jr.,
hijo de uno de los cineastas (Ismael
Rodríguez) que trabajaron junto a
Pedro, no le sorprende que a más de
cincuenta años del deceso del actor,
la gente lo siga queriendo como si
estuviera entre nosotros físicamente.
“Es algo muy satisfactorio sacar
a la venta estas películas, hay que
recordar en esta celebración del
Bicentenario de México la época
hermosa que se vivió, porque la
época que estamos viviendo ahorita
no es bonita. Hay que recordar a Pedro Infante y muchos otros actores
que también trabajaron con él, por
eso me he dado a la tarea de preservar esta obra”, dice Rodríguez. vía
telefónica.
Rodríguez se refiere al paquete
de películas que saldrán a la venta
próximamente, entre las cuales están
“Cuando Lloran Los Valientes”,
“Mexicanos Al grito de Guerra”,
“La Mujeres de Mi General”, entre
otras.
“Pedro Infante no ha muerto, él
sigue en el corazón de los latinos
y de los mexicanos. Esta serie de
películas son una forma de recordar
nuestras raíces y nuestras costumbres. Hay gente en Estados Unidos
que añora sus raíces y sus antepasados, este tipo de películas que son de
valores humanos, de alguna manera
los hace vivir esa nostalgia”, expresó
Rodríguez.
En la conversación con Rodríguez, nos comentó sobre su sentir
del cine en la actualidad. Ya que
él viene de una familia que ha sido
cineasta por más de medio siglo.
“El cine mexicano es una industria que no ha renacido y sigue
siendo la misma industria, en Méxi-

ally play in the platforms; I play in
tennis shoes or sneakers. Anyway, I
feel something wiggling in the arch
of my foot. All of a sudden I realize
it’s a spider! The whole time I’m
singing there’s a spider crawling
inside my boot! I kept lifting my
foot up because I have no idea what
kind of insect is in there. Obviously
I keep getting distracted because I’m
freaking out. I was ready to take the
boot off. As soon as I got off I took
it off. That two-and-a-half minute
song, which is really a short song,
seemed like an eternity!
LP: So, Eric, after much controversy you finally had the chance to
sing “Beth.” What was that like?
Eric: Actually, that came up from
our manager, Doc McGhee. You
have to remember, the band has been
around 36 years touring. There are
a lot of records to draw from –we
can’t NOT do certain songs, it just
wouldn’t fly. ‘Beth’ was a big hit
and it was a KISS song and I know
that there were some people that
said, ‘Oh, this song belongs to this
guy and that song belongs to that
guy.’ I mean, if there’s one thing
I’ve learned being in the band is
that you just can’t please everybody
and when that song was written, the
person was part of KISS, so it’s a
KISS song!
LP: We’re a Hispanic newspaper, have you ever sung or thought
of singing in Español?
Eric: Not much, I mean, not nada!
I know we’ve done some stuff for
fun, like we sang ‘La Bamba’ one
time at a concert. YouTube ‘KISS
co hay mucho talento, pero no hay
las mismas cosas que tuvo el cine de
oro. Muchos historiadores dicen que
México hizo buen cine gracias a la
pos guerra, que porque los americanos estaban en guerra y por eso fue
México quien hizo buenas películas.
Yo estoy en desacuerdo, no fue por
eso, en México hay mucho talento,
pero en este nuevo cine hay depresión en la producción porque no hay
un porcentaje en pantalla, y ahora
gracias a la tecnología se ha podido
ver la obra del cine mexicano. El
cine es para los cines pero no tienen
las suficientes pantallas porque todas
se las llevan los estudios americanos”, agregó Rodríguez.
En sus pláticas Rodríguez ha
reconocido que Pedro Infante es uno
de los artistas mexicanos que más
ha vendido y vende en el cine. Por
esa razón el cree fielmente que los
estudios de este lado de la frontera
decidieron sacar a la venta estos
filmes del sinaloense.
“Warner Brothers puso sus ojos
en estas películas, por eso las están
sacando, porque se están dando
cuenta que no solo en el cine de
oro, sino también en el cine actual se hacen buenas películas en
México. Han salido grandes actores
que no han tenido mucha fama por
falta de continuidad. El cine es muy
diferente a la televisión, porque el
La Bamba,’ I bet it’s there!
LP: Why the name “KISS”?
Eric: Paul [Stanley] came up with
that name for the band and he chose
that word because it has a universal
meaning. You don’t have to speak
English to know what it means. And
that’s what the band is about, we’re
universal. We’re not just an American band, we’re for everybody.
people when they get home to help
them get their life back and that is
what this project is all about. You
may disapprove of war, but you need
to respect these people regardless
of your views. You are able to say
whatever you want in this country
because these people go out and
fight for your rights. We want to help
them be able to get their lives back.
We know that times are tough for
some people economically and we
know there is no better way to get
their mind off their troubles than to
go and see a band like KISS. It is
our way of trying to give something
back to those who have supported
us over the years. Everyone needs to
see KISS at some point in their life.
Tommy: Also, because of the
economy, kids under 14 can get into
the concert for free. Up to four kids
LP: Tell us about the Wounded
Warrior Care project that you
guys are supporting.
Eric: A dollar from every ticket
sold goes to this project. Those
people have gone and sacrificed their
life. Regardless of people’s political
views, these people go and do this
on a volunteer basis to protect our
rights. They have given their life so
we have to make sure that there are
cine es una obra que se queda y la
televisión es un rating fugaz, que
por un rato funciona y después se
olvida”, compartió.
Entre tantas películas que realizó Infante, se han seleccionado
solo algunas para formar parte del
paquete que saldrá a la venta. El
señor Rodríguez nos explicó como
se seleccionaron.
“Se tomó el material que se ha
remasterizado y todavía faltan muchas películas más por remasterizar.
Se limpiaron y se les hizo un sonido
nuevo, se han escogido varias que
tiene que ver con la revolución y
demás. Hay muchas que son de
estos temas, ahí están los recuerdos de nuestra historia”, expresó
Rodríguez.
Antes de terminar Rodríguez.
se expresó muy bien de dos de sus
grandes pasiones de México y el
cine.
“México es uno de los países con
muchas raíces y de mucha cultura,
es uno de los países que tiene la
cultura e historia mas pura que existe. El cine es un arte, por eso se le
nombra el séptimo arte, es cultura
que se preserva para toda la vida”,
concluyó el cineasta.
Los paquetes de películas salen a
la venta el día 14 de septiembre, es
una colección como ninguna otra,
pues como se mencionó, viene
totalmente remasterizada para que
las nuevas generaciones conozcan

really encourage people to come out
and see the show.
LP: Before we wrap up, what’s
the deal with all these rumors
about Gene Simmons tongue?
Eric: That’s his tongue! Some
people heard he cut the little ‘string’
under his tongue so it would get
longer. Man, there are all kinds of
rumors! For the record, we get a lot
of people saying, ‘Hey, Gene! Look
I have a long tongue like you!’ and
believe me, we’ve seen some crazy
tongues that are bigger and longer
than Gene’s. We’ve seen girls that
can touch the bottom of their chin
with their tongue. But I mean, hey,
some people have big body parts and
Gene happens to have a big tongue!

The little things...
By Nina Duran
To have faith in little things is a great thing
Querida Nina:
Tenía seis años de feliz matrimonio, dos lindas
hijas, un esposo ejemplar, él era un hombre tranquilo, sin vicios, buen padre y lo mejor es que nunca
salía con sus amigos. El siempre me contaba las
cosas que sus compañeros de trabajo hacían, por
ejemplo como le eran infieles a sus esposas y que
ellas ni cuenta se daban, que iban a los strip clubs y
tenían que ver con prostitutas. Ahora creo que fue
eso lo que despertó poco a poco su interés, o tal vez
su curiosidad, porque el solo había tenido relaciones
conmigo, en cambio yo ya había tenido otras experiencias sexuales. Un
día no llegó a la hora acostumbrada, apagó su celular, y yo presentí que
algo estaba mal. Así fue. Llegó en la madrugada, tomado y muy extraño,
me preguntó que si siempre lo iba a querer y cosas así, no podía dormir,
estaba muy inquieto y luego se puso a llorar, claro que le pedí una explicación, tenía tantas preguntas, ¿Por qué había llegado tarde? ¿Dónde
estaba? Me contó una historia extraña. Al siguiente día, encontré un
cheque de un dinero que le habían depositado y le pregunté que donde
estaba, lo confronté, le pedí que me dijera la verdad, yo presentía que
había hecho algo mal. Y fue entonces cuando me confesó que fue a uno
de esos strip clubs y que tuvo relaciones sexuales con una prostituta.
Sufrí, y lloré, la pase muy mal en ese momento. Sin embargo eso me
impulsó a mejorar, a sentirme capaz de salir adelante y decidí retomar
mis estudios, ahora estoy por graduarme, el sigue a mi lado, dice que aún
se arrepiente de lo que pasó. El problema es que en la escuela salí con
alguien por seis meses, sin que mi esposo se diera cuenta, los hombres
son tan machistas que ni sospechan que uno también puede engañarlos.
Hace unas semanas le confesé que tuve relaciones con otro hombre, pero
él no me recriminó nada, con qué cara podía hacerlo. La verdad quise
que sintiera un poco de lo que yo sentí, que llorara lo que yo lloré. No
nos llevamos mal, y el no quiere dejarme, de verdad me quiere y yo a
él, pero aun pienso si algún día habrá reconciliación verdadera, y si
podríamos retomar la confianza entre los dos.

Querida Elena:
“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this
mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will
be impossible for you.”

Nina can be emailed at [email protected]
Sabes, contrario a lo que la mayoría de las mujeres pensamos sobre los
hombres que son infieles, creo que en esta ocasión el cambio de tu esposo
es verdadero, claro, el que te haya sido infiel no es justificable, sin embargo
estamos con la creencia de que quien lo hace una vez, lo seguirá haciendo,
pero por lo que cuentas no siguió ocurriendo con tu marido. Creo que parte de
su infidelidad fue debido principalmente por la curiosidad de experimentar,
y si tomas en cuenta que tu habías sido la única mujer con la cual el tuvo
relaciones sexuales, pues eso aumentó su curiosidad, y si sus compañeros
de trabajo y amigos le contaban de sus hazañas amorosas, eso lo terminó
de animar. Ahora el que tu lo hayas engañado para vengarte de él, no me
parece que fue la mejor alternativa, porque efectivamente pudiste haberte
interesado en alguien más, pero no salir con alguien solo para pagarle con
la misma moneda a tu esposo. Tal vez tu esposo sigue sintiéndose mal por
lo que te hizo, por esa misma razón no te reclamó nada. Lo que puedo ver
es que ambos están dispuestos a olvidar y sacar su matrimonio adelante.
Mucha suerte.

Inicia la telenovela “Alguien Te Mira”
Por Domingo Banda
Foto Cortesía de Telemundo
Esta semana dio inicio una
nueva historia que los mantendrá pegados a la pantalla de su
televisor. La nueva telenovela
que presenta la cadena televisiva Telemundo, titulada “Alguien Te Mira”, es una historia
diferente, no es lo que estamos
acostumbrados a ver,la que foco
central de la historia es un asesino en serie, cuyas víctimas son
mujeres. Todos los personajes
parecen ser sospechosos, pero
solo uno es el culpable. Sin duda
alguna habrá que seguir esta
historia para descubrir quién es
el asesino.
Los tres actores protagónicos
son, Dana García, Christian
Meier y Rafael Amaya. Precisamente con estos dos primeros estuvimos en conferencia
telefónica, misma en la que
hablaron de sus personajes y de
la historia, la cual se desarrolla
en la ciudad de Chicago.
“Estuvimos en Chicago, yo no
estuve muchos días, solamente
dos, ahí alcanzamos a hacer varias tomas maravillosas, porque
esa ciudad es un lugar mágico
lleno de lugares especiales. Nos
hizo falta quedarnos más tiempo, pero se hicieron cosas muy
importantes para la novela, que
son para la promoción y escenas
que estarán incluidas dentro de
la telenovela”, dijo García.
Por su parte, Meier agregó,
“A mi me encanta Chicago,
había estado de promoción anteriormente, pero esta vez estuve
cuatro días. Me encantó porque
fue un fin de semana donde
conocí mucha gente porque me
tocó el show de los aviones ojalá
regrese más tiempo. Yo creo
que vamos a regresar por que
la historia se desarrolla allá”.
Hace unos meses, luego de
terminar su telenovela anterior,
Meier había declarado que buscaría oportunidades en el cine.
Y esto respondió al preguntarle
por qué decidió trabajar en este
proyecto.
“Precisamente porque es una
novela alternativa, tiene todo
lo que tienen las telenovelas,
pero también tiene misterio y
suspenso. Es una historia nada
convencional, en realidad es
más fuera de lo común de lo que
se cree. Esta hecha por los mismos creadores de la telenovela
“¿Dónde está Elisa?”, pero es
una novela mucho más oscura.
Me llamó mucho la atención y
el personaje es totalmente diferente a lo que he hecho. Estoy
contento de haber regresado,
creo que si no hubiera sido una
historia como esta no hubiera
aceptado”, confesó el actor de
origen peruano.
Estamos acostumbrados a
ver a García en personajes de
chica buena y sumisa. En esta
fabulosa producción veremos
lo contrario y nos llevaremos la
sorpresa de ese personaje.
“En el caso del personaje que
interpreto, lo escogí porque
quería hacer algo diferente de
los proyectos que había hecho.
El solo tema y tono de esta
novela me gustó mucho, mi gran
temor era ser extremadamente
naturalista. Confieso que fue
algo difícil porque el tono de
la telenovela es algo diferente”,
compartió la actriz.
Ambos actores dejan la última
respuesta al público, que será
quien decida si el proyecto fue
bueno o malo. En espera de
eso, los dos están entregando
lo mejor para complacer a los
televidentes.
“Todos los proyectos son un
reto, uno trata de dar lo mejor,
nosotros nos preparamos para
que el público tenga lo mejor,
pero nunca sabemos el resultado final. El público decide,
yo trato de escoger historias que
considere que tiene ingredientes
o elementos que no solo me
sorprendan a mí, sino también
a la audiencia. Se trata de que
exista magia, que los personajes
tengan ese mundo interesante”,
expresó Garcia.
Después de haber presentado
los primeros veinte minutos de
la telenovela en un programa
especial, la cadena televisiva,
se sorprendió por la excelente
respuesta de la audiencia.
“Venimos de proyectos diferentes, al igual que de estilos,
yo vengo de hacer farsa y luego
fantasía, de ahí pase a series
y ahora esta telenovela, pero
ese es el reto, el hacer cosas
diferentes y ese es el riesgo de
hacer las cosas. Todo es para el
público, para que se enamoren
de los personajes, que para mí
como actriz es muy importante”,
concluyó García.
La telenovela se transmite
en horario estelar, de 9 a 10
p.m. hora centro, a través de la
cadena Telemundo. Están todos
invitados a gozar de esta historia
que los cautivará.
