La Boda

Standard

Weezer’s Red album is coming out on June 3 . In honor of the new album I shall post an old favorite, with a twist! Island In The Sun has two videos, the one below, which is the original, lesser known version, and the second, better known version which was directed by Spike Jonze. I like this one, the original. I’m fond of Mexican-American traditions, and family celebrations.They are always festive and colorful. I was always fascinated by the quinceañera, but had already turned fifteen by the time I learned about them, so there was no way I was going to be able to have one even if I could convince someone that I deserved one. The boda (wedding) and quinceañera have many similarities, the white dress, the ceremony as a rites of passage, religious rituals, and a large family gathering involving food, drink and dancing.

About megstar73

I'm a 37 year old living in the East Bay near San Pablo Bay. I have worked as a Gallery Assistant at a small community college and am a medical assistant who has trained as a phlebotomist. I need to find time in my busy schedule as the mother of a very active toddler to study and get my phlebotomist's license. Interests include cheese, exotic beverages (not the alcoholic kind), ethnic food, improving my culinary skills, bacon, reading, music of all genres and combining all of the above together with friends! Last but not least, I love being the mother of a beautiful, sweet darling little girl. How lucky am I?
