Porque lo prometido es deuda: Welcome to Casa Los Metiches!

Because I promised more videos, and because I am still learning my video editing system… pues, welcome to Casa Los Metiches!  We hope you’ll stay around for a spell and tell us what you’d like to see in our videos.

¡No Pues Guau! Again With My Little Piece Of Mexico On YouTube

¿Quién lo iba pensar?  All of the sudden with the advent of social media and the internet my little piece of México – Cerritos, San Luis Potosi to be exact – is all over the net and I’m feeling more and more ganoso to reconnect with my roots… at least via the world wide web for now since it ain’t really all that safe to travel to Mexico right about now.  Ya les había dicho that El Sauz (the actually rancho in Cerritos that my family is from) has a Facebook page and YouTube channel, pero guau, someone is doing a kick ass job managing their social media platforms.

Check out all of the videos they shared recently on their page:

I didn’t even know the fashion in Cerritos was so trendy nowadays.  In my day (or maybe it was just us) people dressed for function rather than fashion.

Kind of a long promo if you ask me, but it’s still kind of cool to hear all about the local talent they are promoting.  And did you catch that last bit about the promise that there will be “high security” at the event?  Hey Diane Sawyer, that’s a Sign of the Times!

This is really cool.  Kudos to the owner of the video for sharing such an awesome part of our cultura and rancho.  ¡Muchas gracias! 

And finally enchiladas potosinas.  Need I say more?  I don’t think so.

A poco no se quedaron impresionados with my high tech rancho?

¡Clarinetes que somos chingones los de Cerritos! 

My Rancho Is On YouTube!

Un toro ranchero en mi rancho!

Alright, no!  I’m not just trying to be mean.  My mouth literally dropped this morning when I saw this video pop up on my stream – El Sauz Cerritos SLP on YouTube.


When did the rancho get on YouTube?!

I mean, I knew they were on Facebook, and that, in it of itself, was kind of surprising to me when I first found out about it a couple of years ago… but then I thought, “come on, who’s not on Facebook?”  Well these days it seems like only pictures are showing up on my stream, but that could just be me.

Anyhow, YouTube!  Well!  That’s just a whole other animal!

That means someone in the rancho had to 1) record all of this great footage, 2) then find a computer fast enough to edit video, 3) find a spot in the rancho where the power wouldn’t go off long enough to edit this video, and 4) connect to the internet on a strong enough connection to upload a file the size of a four minute video.  Wow!  I did not know El Sauz could do that!

I’m kind of upset also that it wasn’t myself who made it happen!  The Sauz2010 YouTube channel even has more views than my own personal channel on YouTube!  DAYUM!  Who would have thunk?  Apparently not me.

Of course, then I had to be all Metiche and go look at their YouTube channel.  Turns out they’ve been posting video for quite a while now.  No, pues guau… now that’s what I call ¡Pipirisnais!

And they didn’t do a bad job at all of editing this video either.  Check it out!

Now I want to know which one of my relatives is running this channel!

My cousin is the one singing at second :24.

Meeting YouTube Celeb SecretLifeOfaBioNerd

It’s not like me to get star struck very often.  Save for the exception of La Lopez – yes Jenny from the Block – there really aren’t that many people who I’ve always wanted to meet.  In a way, having worked in the field of journalism and PR for so long has made me kind of indifferent to the idea of celebrity.  Still, this week, when local YouTube sensation SecretLifeOfaBioNerd confirmed her participation in a special blogger outreach I was putting together, I couldn’t help but get excited.  As the day of our face to face meeting drew closer my excitement was growing stronger and stronger!

“Nombre, I’m going to meet SecretLifeOfaBioNerd. Can you believe it?”  I told Anjelica.  She was profoundly jealous, but very happy for me at the same time.


Meeting YouTube sensation SecretLifeofaBioNerd!

Lo loco is that besides me and Anjelica and a couple dozens of thousands of others around the world who watch YouTube religiously, probably not that many people know who SecretLifeOfaBioNerd is.  In more than a couple of conversations throughout the week I had to explain what a “Celebrity YouTuber” actually does.


Who's that guy holding the camera?

In case you’re reading this and wondering too, a YouTube Celeb is someone who makes and upload videos on a regular basis, has legions of viewers and thousands of hits on every single one of their videos.  This young lady definitely fits the bill.  Anjelica first discovered her videos on YouTube a while ago.  Después she reeled me in (jajaja) by telling me she was a local YouTube Celeb.


Con la panzota por fuera and all (me... not her, LOL!)

After that we started watching some of her videos together.  Usually we’d be in bed.  Anjelica would start watching videos on her phone and next thing you know she’d invite me to watch one with her.  Not that it took too much convincing.  I’m so impressed by people who have become so “famous” on YouTube.  ¡Qué chingones! 

Anyway, SecretLifeOfaBioNerd showed up, we met, and it was awesome!  We were promoting a local fashion and style event and that being her forte on YouTube it was only natural to extend an invitation.

Ahora for the real chisme, jajaja!!  Nombre, there really isn’t any dirt.  SecretLifeOfaBioNerd was so sweet and humble in person that it was a little uncanny.  We spent a good couple hours shopping and then hung out over coffee and burgers.  ¡Mira, Mira, Bien Pipirisnais El Juan!  Very cool indeed!  And her new video, despite my shoddy camera work and obtrusive laughter, is really quite the masterpiece:


Gracias, SLOABN!!

YouTube Is Changing The Rules: I’m Trying To Make More Videos

Today’s post is real quick.  I’ve been wanting to do more video for some reason.  I just find it a very interesting form of communication, and since YouTube has been changing a lot of the rules, I figured this could be as good of a time as any to re-introduce my channel.  So… enjoy!  Let me know what you think too.


Jenni Rivera the Makeup Artist? Do you want her look?

So Jenni Rivera now has a makeup line!  La Diva de la Banda, who also stars in her own reality television show on Mun2, and who sells everything from real estate to tacos through her various entrepreneurial endeavors under her brand, Jenni Rivera… has now partnered with BHCosmetics as well to develop an “exclusive makeup palette just for BHCosmetics and Jenni Rivera fans.”

El look de La Diva de la Banda, do you dig it?

Here’s what else the makeup company says about the new collection: Inside this 36 Color Eyeshadow and Blush Palette, you will find an array of Jenni`s favorite eyeshadow shades that help create her fearless eyes. The thirty eyeshadow shades include shimmery jewel-tones for a fashion-forward statement, dark black and grays for a smoky eye effect, and pretty pastels and neutrals for an everyday look. The six blushes include warm pink shades in both matte and shimmer, and peach and gold shades that help create a natural glow, just like Jenni. These rich, high-pigmented colors help achieve the sultry and stunning look that defines Jenni Rivera.

So apparently, the line is a hit!  This little tidbit of information caught my attention recently when a couple of makeup YoutTubers began showcasing the Jenni Rivera line.  Why am I watching makeup videos you ask?  LOL!

Well, actually Anjelica watches them every once in a while… and was like “hey look, they have Jenni Rivera makeup.”


Of course, luego luego dije “I gotta share this with everyone!”
