Lately I've been listening and fascinated by many of the conspiracy theories that exist out there like Earth being flat, government tunnels, underground cities and other continents beyond Antarctica. I heard many of the ideas behind this film, The Truman Show, also have some sort of tie to certain conspiracy theories out there. After appearing in such films like Ace Ventura and The Mask, Jim Carrey comes unto a more serious role here, resulting in Academy Awards and Golden Globe Awards, such a legend,
The film focuses primarily on a show about a man named Truman Burbank. The show has existed since he was born and it has followed him throughout his whole existence. Everyone else around him are paid actors who know what the show is all about, only he is left out of the bubble. He grows up thinking the world he lives in is real, until he starts discovering bits and pieces that seem awfully odd. Everyone knows his name and his every move, his wife talks and acts strange when handling certain items, people tend to be secretive and he feels followed everywhere he goes.
Discovering an intellectual rapper is like a needle in a haystack nowadays. No one can ever be on the same level as Chicago's own Lupe Fiasco or Brooklyn's Talib Kweli, and even then on a Latin market world it's just unheard of at least here in the US. There are but very few like California's Malverde who dare speak conscience hip-hop but to find a female Latina spitting cultural rhymes?
Ana Tijoux is by far one of the top Latino hip-hop artists I've ever had the pleasure of listening to, easily she can declare the throne of the best female MC over Lauryn Hill. Her 2014 album "Vengo" with such hit's as the self titled "Vengo", "Somos Sur" ft. Palestinian artist Shadia Mansour and "Delta" had me buying the vinyl disc and putting this on the wall! Upon further investigation, Ana is not only Latina but she (along with the rest of us) is a mixture of European descendants - French & Chilean. Hill.
Yesterday I had a chance to see the Chicago Fire play against Ft. Lauderdale Strikers at Toyota Park for the US Open Cup. The stadium was half full with exceptional weather though we were told a week before we would have a storm. Instead the night made way for an amazing evening game. The Strikers had an amazing lineup like Piñeda, PC and Julius but they were no match for Accam and the Fire. During the 2nd half the Strikers played with one less player due to a red card, final outcome 3-0 in favor of the Fire. Overall it was an exceptional night to see the home team and witness one of a handful of victories this year. We also had a chance to see Sean Johnson a few feet away, walking to the VIP room. Hopefully their chemistry within the team continues building up properly to win the Cup and perhaps win a few more games during the rest of this year's season.
