Hotel Good Luck is a story that aims to reconcile ourselves with life, through reconciling us with death.  It is a play about love in its different ways. It’s a play about the abandon, the need of dropping, and above all the need of accepting that we are only here for a short while, in passing, and that’s why we need to be the very best we can be.

Hotel Good Luck builds up a very particular universe full of absurd situations and ironies, as well as a lot of humor, or rather said it builds up several parallel universes, occurring over and over.

Directed by Alejandro Ricano, and starring Luis Gerardo Mendez and Pablo Chemor, Good Luck Hotel comes to Hollywood for 3 performances only, in Spanish, so don’t miss this opportunity to see Mexico’s brightest talent live on stage at The Montalban in Hollywood, CA (1615 N. Vine St.)

El Presentador de Noticias y Ganador de Premios Emmy Jorge Ramos Reflexiona en un Nuevo Libro sobre sus 30 años de carrera Periodistica.

Sin miedo será lanzado simultáneamente en español y en inglés el 15 de marzo de 2016. 

SIN MIEDO Jorge Ramos

Celebra, un sello editorial del Grupo Editorial Berkley, parte de Penguin Random House, lanzará un nuevo libro del premiado periodista y presentador de noticias Jorge Ramos. Lo anterior fue anunciado el día de hoy por el vicepresidente de Celebra y editor Raymond García. SIN MIEDO: lecciones de rebeldes será publicado simultáneamente en español y en inglés el 15 de marzo de 2016.

Jorge Ramos, el ganador de premios Emmy, columnista nacional y autor de diversos libros éxitos de venta, es reconocido por su labor al frente de los noticieros de Univision desde 1986. Además de la edición nocturna del Noticiero Univision, Jorge Ramos también conduce Al Punto, el semanario de la cadena televisiva sobre asuntos de interés público. Es, además, conductor en Fusion, una sociedad conjunta de ABC y Univision, y escribe semanalmente una columna que es distribuida por la agencia de prensa del New York Times. Jorge Ramos fue noticia recientemente después de haber sido expulsado de una conferencia de prensa de Donald Trump en Iowa luego de que confrontara al candidato a la presidencia acerca de su postura con respecto a la inmigración.

Ramos es ampliamente reconocido por su forma franca y sin limitaciones de entrevistar a líderes mundiales, titanes de los negocios, legisladores democráticos y dictadores que amenazan con destruir esos principios. En SIN MIEDO, Ramos recupera entrevistas pioneras realizadas durante sus más de treinta años de carrera periodística. Al relatar entrevistas con personalidades de la talla del presidente Barack Obama, la ministra de la Corte Suprema de Justicia Sonia Sotomayor, Spike Lee, Barbara Walters y Fidel Castro, entre otros, comparte algunas historia por primera vez y ofrece una perspectiva única acerca de temas que afectan al mundo contemporáneo. Franco y a veces controvertido, Ramos arroja luz sobre los asuntos que importan a los hispanos, el mayor grupo minoritario de este país. Estos asuntos sin duda alguna influirán no sólo en los resultados de las elecciones presidenciales de 2016 sino también en el futuro de Estados Unidos.

“Ser periodista es hoy tan intenso como lo era cuando comencé, y me entusiasma poder hacerlo todos los días. Durante treinta años he conocido a las personalidades más interesantes de todas partes del mundo. Cada una me ha enseñado algo, acerca de mí y acerca del mundo en el que vivimos”, dijo Ramos.

La revista Time incluyó a Jorge Ramos en su lista de las “100 personas de mayor influencia” y lo calificó como uno de “los veinticinco hispanos más influyentes en Estados Unidos”. People en Español lo hizo parte de su primera lista de los 50 hispanos más influyentes. Nacido en la Ciudad de México, Jorge Ramos vive en Estados Unidos desde hace más de veinticinco años y aparece con regularidad en las cadenas de televisión más grandes dando voz a los derechos de los inmigrantes.

With such busy lives we all live everywhere and especially here in Los Angeles sometimes all we wish to do is sit back, relax and watch TV, but when our favorite shows do not coincide with the free time we have in our lives becomes a real nightmare. Worry no more because I’ve got the best solution for you to watch your favorite shows in a new way — EVERYWHERE. This can be done via the platform NBC TVEverywhere (TVE) from the comfort of your home on your desktop or laptop computer. This is true!

361_b29217250bc0464b16a3b15c76e59687

Forget about the old-fashioned way of sitting in front of a television screen and staying put on the couch. You’ll never have to worry about forgetting to hit record again. Now times are changing and NBC TVE has come to the rescue by also redefining how you watch TV. Furthermore, some people may not have the luxury of having both a TV and a computer and often times do have a laptop so this convenience is handy for everyone, but especially for my fellow millennials who are on the hustle and bustle to make ends meet. I know that 99.9% of them do have a laptop.

One of my all-time favorite shows is The Voice and especially when the beautiful Latin sensation Shakira was featured as a coach! I loved following all her funny and cool moments on the show and not to mention her extraordinary musician’s expertise was always on point for the beginners.

361_617b3813de43bb9566107fd0fbebed2c

The Voice has returned on its ninth season to select the strongest and best vocalists from across the nation. In this new season Gwen Stefani returns to join the iconic stars Pharell Williams, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as celebrity musician coaches, while Carson Daly continues to serve as the show’s host.

Without a doubt two of my favorite parts of the show are the Blind Auditions and the Live Performance. I enjoy the dynamics of the Blind Auditions because the coaches select solely on voice and not looks when they have their chairs turned back to the musician onstage. If no coach selects the performer he/she is immediately eliminated from the competition. And of course I like to see the progress that each talent makes throughout the competition, but I truly enjoy the Live Performance the most because you get to see how far they’ve come.

No more suspense if you are waiting to find out who go dropped during the live eliminations on The Voice this week because NBC Entertainment makes it easy for you.

The convenience that NBC TVE offers is amazing and with the holidays around the corner I know many of you will choose to cuddle-up with this cold weather, eat comfort food and binge on some of your favorite NBC shows while getting caught up on all of the episodes you’ve missed, no matter where you are. Whether that be if you stayed local for the holidays or if you traveled to visit your loved ones in your hometown.

Watch and experience TV Without the TV. It’s an easy & free way to enjoy all the NBC shows you love, any which way you want. Just visit NBC’s site, log in and watch from your desktop or laptop.

Some of the other shows you can watch include; The Blacklist, Heroes Reborn, Chicago on Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago PD.

Have fun and thank me later for making your life a bit better for introducing you to NBC TVE.

Let me know what show you’ll be binge watching this holiday season?

Are you looking for a short and extremely relaxing getaway close to home in Southern California then I have the best recommendation for you!

I was pleasantly surprised with this trip by my gf to The Ranch at Bandy Canyon as my 27th birthday gift. I think it was an exceptional gift because it wasn’t like she went to the store — bought me something, wrapped it and that was it. It was a great feeling to see all the thought and detail she put into surprising me with a perfect getaway/road trip to this gem that sits in the San Pascual Valley (Escondido area) in Southern California. She knows how much I love nature, hiking, cabin-life, getaways and horses so she saw all things included in this secluded rustic location and got us there.

IMG_8731

We arrived on a sunny Sunday afternoon after many guests had departed from a wedding reception the previous day. The venue is popular for wedding celebrations and a beautiful one too. This is one we may consider for ours!

IMG_8932

Also, summer camps, picnics and children’s birthday celebrations take place at the site with an array of fun activities that will keep your child and their friends entertained.

Even before you enter the ranch and you drive on a windy uphill road you begin to notice how peaceful and disconnected from society you can get to be. It’s a great feeling and one that everyone needs to live every once in a while. As you approach the ranch there’s no reception and Wi-Fi at the grounds is weak, but I am telling you now so that you are prepared. Plus, there’s nothing wrong with disconnecting from society and social media every once in a while. Get ready for re-charging those internal batteries in your system.

IMG_8967

Giant eucalyptus trees line-up the road as you drive into The Ranch at Bandy Canyon and as soon as we checked-in the gal that greeted us was super welcoming and accommodating to our needs. She guided us to our nicely furnished cabin and handed us a basket of food (muffins and fruit) and wine for our stay.

IMG_8750

We settled into our cabin and then ventured out to the grounds and explored on our own in a 20-30 minute walk. The ranch is fairly small so you can walk through it in 10 minutes, but with capturing different corners of this beautiful place we took longer. There’s a stream that runs through the ranch, a pool and jacuzzi, a lodge which is the oldest building in Escondido. There is a piano, a fireplace and lots of room to enjoy people’s company. I overheard that they will be transforming the lodge into a restaurant which I think will be great because currently there’s no restaurant in the grounds. Recently I saw they opened a much needed General Store that offers coffee bar, snacks, drinks and souvenirs.

IMG_8861

There’s a patio area we loved as well that is great for an outdoor reception with a fountain in the middle of the courtyard and with a fireplace where we enjoyed s’mores in the middle of the night.

IMG_8848

My favorite area of the ranch were the stables with the horses for sure. We walked there and hung out with my favorite animals. I love horses! We didn’t have the chance to ride them, but it was still great to see them.

IMG_8874

We went back to our cabin and got ready for dinner that day. We went to a nearby restaurant called Cordiano Winery outside the ranch that overlooked some vineyards and mountains. We had some delicious pizza cooked in the oven and wine.

IMG_8857

IMG_8869

We watched the sunset and that was an unforgettable experience.

IMG_8792

We made it back to our cabin and took a dip in the pool late at night. We had the entire pool and jacuzzi to ourselves so that was very relaxing.

new

We heard nature at its finest accompanied by a full moon and the stars shined bright that night. This was an experience we don’t usually get to live with all the hustle and bustle in Los Angeles and The Ranch at Bandy Canyon supported this exuberant view. Thank you!

IMG_8835

We woke up the next day and ate some of the goodies that were given to us in the basket, we sat in the patio overlooking the ranch, heard birds chirping and drank coffee.

IMG_8989

IMG_8998

We took another morning stroll around the grounds. This time we got on the swing and the hammocks to relax some more. When was the last time you got on a hammock?

IMG_8767

IMG_8952

As you can see you’ll do a lot of nature walks and disconnecting while visiting this place and don’t expect to do something major, but that’s the beauty of this place that you simply get to relax because nowadays that’s a luxury.

IMG_8801

We checked-out of the ranch and we drove to two California missions on our way back to Los Angeles. We also made pit stops at the Oceanside and San Clemente piers.

IMG_9030

Our fun getaway came to an end too soon, but it was the perfect one to spend quality time and celebrate another successful year.

IMG_9122

If you are looking for a fun place to escape with your significant other that will be inexpensive and worthwhile take a look at The Ranch at Bandy Canyon and their cottages so that you can pay a visit for a weekend escape.

Hace dos años cinco amigos se reunieron para compartir, escuchar música y pasar un buen rato. De esta reunión nace la idea que quedó plasmada en el video musical del nuevo sencillo de Jean Rodríguez “Sobrenatural”.

 

Sin presupuesto embarcaron este viaje que los llevó a países como Uruguay, Argentina, Peru, Colombia y Puerto Rico. El resultado fue un cortometraje grabado a una sola cámara bajo la dirección de Carlos Escobar, la improvisación en cada país que filmaban le da un toque real a la grabación donde, con la excepción de las escenas filmadas en Puerto Rico, todos los demás extras no son actores si no personas reales que formaron parte de este viaje.

 

“Este video es mucho más que un video musical de 6 minutos. Este video  representa la cultura latina, la belleza, la determinación y la amistad. Los recuerdos y las historias detrás de cada escena siempre estarán en mi mente y mi  corazón. Desde la hermosa gente que conocimos en el camino y  los lugares increíbles que visitamos. Siempre bromeo y digo: si hubiéramos tenido un gran presupuesto para hacer este video, el resultado no hubiese sido tan bueno como lo que se hizo”, comentó Jean Rodríguez.

You knew it was coming, and here it is: Adele’s first new song in three years, “Hello,” has arrived just days after being teased during British X Factor. As promised, it comes complete with a video directed by Xavier Dolan and co-starring Tristan Wilds (yes, from The Wire). It’s the first music video filmed using IMAX cameras. Adele is seen throughout retracing the key memories of her failed relationship through a sepia lens.

It’s the first single off her long-awaited third album, 25, which Adele will officially launch on November 20.

“Hello” begins as a soft piano song and quickly transforms into a ballad of epic scale thanks to Adele’s signature, gut-wrenching vocals.

Adele described the album as make-up record in a recent Instagram post: “My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did.”

During a recent interview on Carson Daily she described that it took her some time to launch this album because after her second record-hitting album she believed it would be impossible to top-it off, but she realized that it would be impossible, but she still had to create something new.

Check out the full track listing below:

01. Hello
02. Send My Love (To Your New Lover)
03. I Miss You
04. When We Were Young
05. Remedy
06. Water Under The Bridge
07. River Lea
08. Love In The Dark
09. Million Years Ago
10. All I Ask
11. Sweetest Devotion

AVivirLA had the opportunity to be part of a special screening for the movie The Last Witch Hunter coming out in theaters on Friday, October 23rd. I won’t spoil the movie, but it was great for all supernatural movie-goers.

Additionally, I received some pretty exciting swag from my friends over at Allied Hispanic! Thank you.

In the fantasy film Vin Diesel’s character deals with death. He’s been cursed with immortality by the Witch Queen, which means he isn’t able to reunite with his loved ones in the afterlife.

He has the job of coming between the covens of New York City and their goal to destroy humanity by way of a horrific plague. In order to accomplish this, he must partner up with a beautiful female witch – a ‘dream walker’ named Chloe – played by Rose Leslie.

The Last Witch Hunter- poster 1

Others that are part of the cast are Elijah Wood, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Julie Engelbrecht, and Michael Caine. The movie was directed by Breck Eisner.

The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including KAULDER, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful QUEEN WITCH, decimating her followers in the process.

In the moments right before her death, the QUEEN curses KAULDER with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today KAULDER is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to KAULDER, the QUEEN WITCH is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.

Don’t forget to go check out all the supernatural fun on the big screen this weekend starting on October 23rd. Here’s the movie trailer to get you in the mood and especially a great movie for this Halloween:

The film is rated PG-13 rating for sequences of fantasy violence and frightening images. The running time is 106 minutes.

Cuando recién hacia mis primeras entrevistas en el mundo del entretenimiento aquí en Los Ángeles, CA Moenia fue uno de la primera banda que entreviste. Fueron súper buena onda y nuestra plática estuvo muy amena donde platicamos de todo en poco ya que en ese entonces lanzaban la producción En Eléctrico. En esta ocasión no han dado a conocer fecha para el lanzamiento de su próximo disco pero si han lanzado su más reciente sencillo que es completamente inédito, “Jamás” producido por Armando Ávila.

11873682_10153249655174160_650417134276762244_n

La banda integrada por Alfonso, “Midi” y Jorge, destacó que su retorno a los escenarios es la continuación de algo que nunca ha dejado de hacer, que es tocar. “Todo tipo de exponentes, ya sea en grupos o solistas, cumplen con el proceso de ciclos, hay triunfos y fracasos, momentos de éxito y de tranquilidad, nosotros hemos sabido llevar esa carrera y estamos siempre presentes a pesar de que nos tardamos mucho de un disco a otro”, explicó “Midi”.

El tema “Jamás” lo van a presentar de manera oficial el 11 de diciembre próximo en el Teatro Metropolitan, recinto en el que siempre han iniciado sus giras musicales.

Moenia_LaCartelera

El nuevo sencillo tiene la referencia de la canción de Timbiriche “No seas tan cruel conmigo”, la cual podría dar una nueva dirección a la música del grupo.

El próximo disco tienen sonido y canciones que te pueden remitir a lo más clásico de Moenia y hay otras que traen un sonido que no se han hecho antes pero no pierde la esencia electrónica.

Por lo pronto están lanzando este sencillo en Facebook para promocionarlo.

Escucha “Jamás” aquí:

About this Performance

This incredible evening features two legends of Latin jazz piano. Salsa pioneer Eddie Palmieri fearlessly combines Afro-Caribbean grooves with hard-bop harmonies. Chucho Valdés is a towering figure who combines classic jazz dexterity with the rhythmic intricacies of Afro-Cuban culture.

eddie

Come for: Born in Spanish Harlem to a highly musical family, Eddie Palmieri joined his uncle’s orchestra at age 13, playing timbales. “By 15, it was goodbye timbales and back to the piano until this,” Palmieri says. “I’m a frustrated percussionist, so I take it out on the piano.”

And more: Founder of Irakere and a second-generation jazz pianist, Chucho Valdés has won five Grammys and three Latin Grammys.

The breakout stars the world fell in love with in Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me global film franchise headline their own movie for the first time in Minions, available on Digital HD November 24, 2015, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on December 8, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters.  Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression. But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. The trio embark upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award®-winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain.  They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in ‘mod’ London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation.

Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side, Gravity) heads up an all-star voice cast including Golden Globe and recent Emmy Award®-winner Jon Hamm (“Mad Men,” Bridesmaids), Academy Award-nominee Michael Keaton (Birdman: (Or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, Toy Story 3), seven-time Emmy Award-winner Allison Janney (“The West Wing,” “Masters of Sex,” “Mom”), Academy Award-nominee Steve Coogan (Despicable Me 2,Philomena), BAFTA Award-winner Jennifer Saunders (“Absolutely Fabulous,” Shrek 2), and Academy Award-winner Geoffrey Rush (The King’s Speech, Pirates of the Caribbean series).  The inimitable voices of theMinions are again voiced by Academy Award-nominee Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2) who co-directs with Kyle Balda (Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax). Minions is produced by Illumination Entertainment CEO and founder Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy. Brian Lynch wrote the screenplay, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film.

Minions will be available on Blu-ray with DIGITAL HD and UltraViolet and DVD:

  • Blu-ray unleashes the power of your HDTV and is the best way to watch movies at home, featuring 6X the picture resolution of DVD, exclusive extras and theater-quality surround sound.
  • DVD offers the flexibility and convenience of playing movies in more places, both at home and away.
