My last post of the night. Since I am in a Spanish mood, what better way to enjoy it than by listening to 1 of my favorite groups, the Gipsy Kings? This video is from their first album. The song is called "Djobi, Djoba". I LOVE Nicholas Reyes, the singer of the group. He has an amazingly, powerful voice.
I recently saw "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and I absolutely LOVED it! Woody Allen and Pedro Almodovar are my 2 favorite directors. I have never been to Barcelona, but this movie made me yearn to go back to Spain. I am in a Spanish mood. Maybe, it is my mother's Spanish roots getting to me again.

My mother LOVED Paul Newman. So did I! He was 1 of my favorite actors and hers too. I didn't want the week to go by without me posting about the loss of this incredible human being! It would have been so easy for Mr. Newman to rest on his laurels: his great looks, fame, intelligence, and money, but instead, he chose to put all of that to great use by helping others, especially children. "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" is hands down my favorite of his movies. I remember being 11-years-old and seeing this movie with my family when it first came out. I LOVED it all those years ago, and that hasn't changed today. This scene is 1 of those "perfect" cinematic moments. And like Sally Field said a few days ago, "Sometimes God makes perfect people and Paul Newman was 1 of them." I can't think of a better tribute...
