Robert Rodriguez and Me

NO es ningún secreto que uno de mis ídolos es Robert Rodríguez; por lo que encontrar este video fue una maravilla; y verlo, fue un placer.

Taken from the youtube page:

In the first lecture of the 2011 University Lecture Series, Professor Charles Ramírez Berg of the Department of Radio-TV-Film tells the story of his two-decade-long relationship with director Robert Rodriguez. Beginning with Robert's first student film (Bedhead), he discusses how he went on to make his first feature, El Mariachi, for $7,000 in the summer of his junior year, and how those two films got him a contract with Columbia Pictures. In the process, Ramírez Berg discusses the lessons he learned from his celebrated student and will conclude with the secrets of Robert's success, which students can use during their careers here at UT.




Catan Settlers of America

Lo ví anoche en Barnes & Nobles, cuesta $60 dólares. Dan ganas de jugar; aunque no se si el tablero TAN grande se convierta en un punto negativo del juego, habría que jugarlo a ver; aunque quien sabe cuánto se demore la armada del tablero.

Saw it yesterday at Barnes & Nobles, cost: $60 dollars. Wish I could play it; although having a board THAT big might become a negative aspects, I don't know, I'd have to play it. Another thing is, I bet it takes a long time to set that board up.
