An Open Letter to ABC: Renew ‘CRISTELA’!

An Open Letter to ABC: Renew ‘CRISTELA’!

On Friday, April 17th one of the BEST NEW Comedies on television, “Cristela” came to an end…possibly forever.

“Cristela” is one of those rare, beautiful stones that you come across while walking on a road. You give it a couple of scrubs in the kitchen sink and it turns out to be a diamond and that’s what “Cristela” was and is for me, a series that could be a beautiful diamond.

I’m a 24 year old latino male and “Cristela” is practically my life story. The series gives latinos a voice, it showcases the struggles that we have to go through in life. Cristela has been in Law School for six years, I on the other hand have in college (community college, to be exact) for nearly five years. It’s not because I’m not smart, there have been challenges that come up in life and sometimes it takes longer to achieve your goals. In the end though, much like Cristela you can overcome any obstacle that comes your way. You can think of Cristela as a superhero which is true, because she’s pretty bad ass.

Latinos are under represented in television and Cristela Alonzo is doing a pretty good job giving Latinos a voice. I’m a guy and I feel empowered by what she’s created, she gives me hope that one day the world will embrace Latinos and not take us for granted. If you look at statistics, Latinos are pretty much taking over yet we’re still under represented…Why? C’mon ABC, give this series a shot. It can and will surprise you.

Queens of The Stone Age Launch Charity Benefiting ill and disabled Musicians

Rockstars making a difference.

Queens of The Stone Age are currently on a break following their two-year touring stint, but that doesn’t mean their just sitting around doing nothing. Josh Homme of QOTSA along with members of Jimmy Eat World and Paramore have teamed up to to form The Sweet Stuff Foundation.

The charity provides assistance to career musicians, recording engineers, and their families struggling with illness and disability. According to its mission statement:

The mission of The Sweet Stuff Foundation is to help our musical community and their families with the vital elements often overlooked during periods of illness and disability. Things like transportation to medical treatment, assistance with childcare and tuition, income assistance, the “last wishes” of a lifetime, and special treatments not covered by insurance. The healing power of music is also a vital form of preventative medicine. That’s why the Sweet Stuff Foundation’s two prong approach is also committed to providing assistance for music lessons, instruments, and musical collaborations for children. To help foster an atmosphere of creativity & introduce a healthy outlet via music, so that the “Sweet Stuff’ will continue for generations to come.

The Sweet Stuff Foundation launched in 2013, but it’s just barely getting publicity…thanks to the Foo Fighters. To raise proceeds, the charity will be auctioning offvarious items in the coming months, including a signed guitar from the 2014 Grammy Awards. (CoS)
