Excuses, excuses

I promise we’re constantly trying to put new videos out for y’all. Don’t believe us? Well here’s the proof. No matter what we do, it always seems something funny or crazy always happens to interrupt our creative process. jajaja… bien creativos verdad?  Okei, okei, le bajamos. But seriously, from the car running out of gas to us just not finding the words to say what we want to say. Or just saying the wrong words all together. We didn’t want to let this week go by without a new vlog, so here’s a little compilation of all our recent mishaps. Enjoy!

And hey, if you have any tips for us, we’re all ears.

Railroads & Rodeo: It’s Rodeo Time In Texas Y’all!

We’re obviously confused about the Rodeo in Texas, and a bunch of other stuff.  Wait, or is that just me?  Don’t answer that question!  Pues, we made another video and, well, like it or not, here it is!

We’re actually having a lot of fun making these videos.  We hope you at least enjoy them un poquito.  If you want to see more of our videos, check us out on YouTube.  Subscribe too.  We’d love to have you!

Bueno, talk more later.

Thanks for subscribing and reading our blog!  We’d love to get to know you better.  Join us on Facebook and Twitter.

A Tejas State of Mind!

Today, we’re in a Tejas state of mind.  Why?  Because we always have way too much fun when we’re just playing around with our little video camera.  This time we were in San Antonio when we filmed these videos at the missions there.  I think the idea was for you all to guess which mission we were at in each clip, pero como que we didn’t do a very good job of giving you all good tips.  So… mejor, leave us a comment here – make sure to include your email address so we can contact you – and we’ll randomly select a winner on Tuesday, August 28, 2012.  The winner gets a $40 gift card to Amazon or something.  We’ll figure out something good that we can send you.

Anyhow, hope you like the video!  I think it’s one of my favorites so far.

Piropos for Valentine’s Day

¡Estas bien enamorado!  You are so in love and you just can’t help it.  You’re feeling those butterflies in your stomach and nothing anyone says can make you change your mind about the object of your affection.  He or she is perfect in every way in your eyes.  From the way they talk, their smile, their smell, the way they laugh… this person has to be the one you’ve been waiting for all of your life!  Let’s face it, you may not have been tirelessly searching all of your life, let alone holding casting calls for a perfect mate over the years, but you know deep down inside you’ve always been hoping your media naranja is just one bad date away.

So in love…

Only one problem, this person has no idea you exist!  They’ve seen you around.  They might even know your name, but they haven’t a clue about all of those feelings that little heart of yours has been harboring inside for them.

Here’s where a good piropo could be just the icebreaker you’ve been searching for.  On the other hand, and I’m just throwing it out there, it could also be the kiss of death for your platonic relationship.  El chiste es that you have to selectively choose which piropo would be the most appropriate for your crush.  If you’ve been observing this person closely enough to notice their smile, their laugh, and all sorts of other little detallitos – and you know you have – then this definitely should be pretty easy for you.  I’m not calling you out.  I’m just saying.

Now a little history.  There’s no clear actual origin to the piropo, at least not that I was able to track down, which if you’ve been wondering what the hell I’m talking about could best be described as a compliment or come-on intended to flatter a person your interested in – think of it as “putting your game face on” in Spanish.  Nevertheless, most sources online place the beginning of piropeadas either in the Middle Ages or in early Rome as an evolution of our early languages.  Whatever the actual origin, what is true is that piropos are truly most popular in Latin America and among Latinos in general.  So rather than go on and on, let me just share a couple of the most amusing piropos I ran across online in this video.  Enjoy!

Burradas: “Blonde Moments” by Los Metiches

Burrada – dicho o acción torpe, brutal.

They’re called burradas because they are things we all do without thinking.  Things that might embarrass us or even make us feel pretty clueless for a couple of seconds.  Sort of like blonde moments – we all have them regardless of what color our roots might actually be, and they’re just pretty hilarious.  So take a look at some of our best blonde moments caught on video.

I still say I make/have fewer burradas!

Who We Are TAG: Los Metiches Q & A Video

It was only a matter of time!  We’ve figured out how to TAG people on videos through YouTube as well now.  So, this week, for our “Los Metiches” episode we figured it would be fun to tell you more about ourselves.  Stuff like: Who are Los Metiches?  Where did they come from?  What are they doing?  You get the picture.

¡Los Metiches!

And here it is, our very first Official TAG Video about Who We Are!

We also thought it would be incredibly chingon to have you guys submit your own videos answering these same questions.  After all, the whole point of a TAG video is to do just that.  Plus we just really want to know who you are.  To get the ball rolling we’ve already tagged a few people ourselves.  Hopefully they’ll jump in and keep on tagging others.  If you’re so inclined, please make your own video and leave us the link here too.  We’d love to see it!

Oh yeah and before we forget, since we know you’re all busy, here’s a quick Cheat Sheet (with times) for all of the Questions on this Video:

Ask Juan: How to tell if you’re at a Pachanga?

¡Charanga, Pachanga, Charanga, Pachanga!

It should be pretty simple to tell.  I mean you can’t pass off a tamal or a torta for an hors d’oeuvre, much less frijoles pintos or asado… though in all fairness, word around the street is that these new gourmet food trucks are doing wonderful things with our comida.  But for this question I figured (well Anjelica pointed it out to me) that it would be better to let Los Metiches answer for all of us.  Check it out!
