Has anyone seen the new News 4 promo that has been airing for the past week? If you have yet to see it, let me summarize it for you! Shelton is asked a question about KDBC 4.The question is “What happened to KDBC 4?” Shelton’s response is that KDBC 4 fell off in the late 1980s? Are you serious? How would Shelton know that? As far as I know he was still living in New Mexico. But what is hilarious to me is that this ego maniac took a job with KDBC in 2004! (I thought KDBC fell off in the 80s? I guess since Shelton was present it never fell off!) So when did KDBC turn into a second rate station? Once the late 90s arrived, KDBC started having problems. These problems were caused by poor management, and not by a lack of resources like Patricia Maese stated in her promo. Bad management and anchors/reporters with ego problems are what caused the downfall of KDBC4. It is as simple as that.
For a minute I really did believe that Mr.Box Office was cancelled! Guess what? It has not been cancelled! A new season of Mr.Box Office is currently in production as we speak! Seriously! Visit the official facebook page! This show is so bad that it is used to torture people into confessing to crimes that they did not commit. Prisons are also using it to kill death row inmates in a peaceful and humane manner. This show is so bad that Arsenio Hall refuses to make a guest appearance on it. So what does that tell you! Someone needs to create an online petition to have this show removed from the airwaves! I will gladly sign it and ask some of my friends to sign it in blood! If you are an up and coming actor or actress and appear on this show, you are committing career suicide! Before appearing on this show, give it some thought. I heard a rumor that Byron Allen is paying extras and guest actors in microwaveable TV dinners and twelve packs of Great Value soda. Is it really worth it? Again think about it!
Around mid 2007 I was jogging at Ascarate Park and enjoying the rancid smell of duck crap along with algae and garbage. As mile number two was approaching, a KFOX van catches my eye. Standing outside of that van was Mike DiSerio and his cameraman Mr.Persistent. After jogging a mile, Mike DiSerio starts walking towards me and gives me the impression that he wants to ask me a question. When Mike and I lock eyes (no homo) he turns away and stands behind the van. “What the f**k did I just witness?” I told myself. It was so odd to see a reporter do that. Usually a reporter or his camera jockey will ask you to give a statement about a topic. It was almost as if he was afraid to ask me a question. Weird is all I have to say.
A few years ago a Las Cruces restaurant was recommended by Stephanie Guadian. The name of that restaurant is Nellie’s! Oh boy do I regret visiting this restaurant! As everybody in Las Cacas knows, you have to wait to be seated. Now you are probably thinking to yourself, what is wrong with waiting? Well I have no problem with waiting for a table. The wait for a table at Nellie’s can be anywhere from 30 minutes to one whole hour! After waiting for an hour on a Saturday afternoon,my pops and I were given a table.Upon entering this establishment, we noticed that this place was the size of our house! This restaurant is small! Better yet this restaurant is very small. So be prepared to bump elbows with other patrons every ten minutes or so. Appetizers that are served are chile in a small bowl and salty/oily chips. My pops ordered enchiladas, and my nappy headed ass ordered a red or should I say chile colorado burrito. My pops felt that his meal lacked flavor. According to him he was eating tortillas with old shredded cheese. Now all I have to say about my meal is that it definitely lacked flavor. All I could taste was a slightly burned tortilla and chewy chunks of flavorless meat. For a minute I felt like a dog eating Gravy Train canned dog food. All it takes for me to remove a restaurant from my to visit list is one bad first visit (I guess first impressions really are important). Other people have told me to try other menu items and give Nellie’s another chance. I might return in the future. Who knows! When it comes to satisfying my urge for Mexican cuisine in LC, I make a trip to Roberto’s. So Stephanie did Nellie’s pay you to make positive comments about their grub? If they did, how much did they pay you? Or are you related to the owner or manager? Let me know!
In everything they do even though what they are doing is absurd or silly is disturbing to EVERY member of The City Workshop! Take for example the ABC TV show Cristela. Everybody in the Southwest has told us that this show is hilarious, and that we need to watch it for the mere fact that we are Hispanic! WTF! So upon hearing this recommendation, we decided to watch Cristela aka Crappella for two weeks in a row. Guess what! This show did not make any of us laugh even once! The show is full or should I say filled with stupid stereotypes, canned audience laughter, and a lot of bad acting! The only one that is turning in a decent performance is Fluffy aka Gabriel Iglesias.The only thing that we could agree on is that Gabriel Iglesias needs his own TV show, but on a cable network like HBO or Showtime. When watching Cristela we had flashbacks about The George Lopez show. Everybody and their mother said the same thing about the George Lopez show! We watched and realized that the show was about as funny as the Holocaust. Forgive us for saying this, Cristela is not funny, and we are not going to support it! Even though we are Hispanic.
Here is another example! Eddie Holguin! Lets be honest here! Eddie Holguin embarrassed the City of El Paso. He really did! With his bargain bin Christmas lights and two dollar security, he made El Paso look like a town full of cheap asses! When the bargain bin light fiasco occurred, we remember hearing people say “Hey you should support Eddie! He is Mexican American!” (WTF! I thought we were all American!) Anyway, our response to this was ” We should support him because he is Mexican American? Are you serious? Did you support Richard Ramirez when he was killing people in California? He was Hispanic or should I say Mexican American!” This whole idea of Hispanic people supporting other Hispanic people in everything they do just because they are Hispanic is stupid/silly! How about we support any human being that is doing something positive regardless of his or her skin color or ethnicity!
