¡Ay Yi Yi!

Shout-out tonight goes to Ruth for her kind contribution. Muchas gracias.

I’ve been enjoying this video and wanted to share it with you. NPR stages “Tiny Desk Concerts,” in which musical acts perform in a cluttered workspace at NPR HQ. I’ve been enchanted by Mariachi Flor De Toloache, New York’s first all-female mariachi troupe. As you’ll hear, their repertoire runs from traditional to jazz, with lots of energy.

    I am a big NPR nerd so I also enjoy the “Tiny Desk Concerts”! These ladies are most definitely talented!☺

    I’m not sure how long the Old Ranch will remain “live” so I’ve been reading from the oldest page (#2057) forward. I’ve worked my way to page 1739, and found the very first sighting of a NTMTOM in the wild! Behold!

        I haven’t been delving very far into the comments sections, if I read all of them it would take a decade to read the whole site! I did however (just for old times sake you understand) skim the “pa-sickie” commentroversy. Oy vey!

          Now you have to give us a hint.

            Really, because I don’t seem to recall that one.

              This baby video was posted on CO, riling up all sorts of people who felt that CO was a cute ANIMAL site, and baby hoomins were not allowed and they aren’t cute anyway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uoj-3bq-14o

              Wow! Kinda frightening war of words.

              All I’ll say about that video is “now I want a pasickie”.

          Gaah! Does anyone remember the kitten-in-the- blender commentroversy, which ended with Meg posting an Official Apology? (Actually, I’m really asking, since at my age memories are not compleeeetly reliable).

            That one was my fault. I’ve gotten Meg in trouble a few times since 2008. Those moments were few and far between, but still I always felt badly that other people had to deal with a problem I caused.

            • dubravkamcvmd February 2, 2016 / 9:10 am

              I was mystified by the uproar. It seemed like mass hysteria to me. Now that I know it was your post, the negative reaction seems even more ridiculous.

      My favorite NTMTOM is still “Elizabethan Reptile Theater.”

    LOVING the music! Thanks for posting that, NTMTOM!

    Also loving the posts from the old ranch. 😀

    I had forgotten about the pa-sickie vid. I think that was one of my favs!! Had to go back and see it again. I’d forgotten about all the controversy it brought on. Oh, my!! And Meg was close to having one of those little hoomins herself. Wonder what she thought about all the negative stuff going on.

    Thanks for posting that Mike. I’ve been a big fan of those ladies. They are so talented!
