The Sauce

If you haven’t heard by now – McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce popularity made a HUGE comeback after Rick & Morty’s Season 3 premiere episode on April Fools day. In it, Rick brags about how amazing this fucking sauce is – and how he can only have it in his dreams since it was discontinued. The sauce was a promotional gimmick used when Disney’s Mulan came out.

Anyway. Mickey D’s brought the sauce back in a VERY limited supply after MILLIONS of fans of Rick & Morty demanded it. Needless to say… it was fucking chaos. Check this shit out.

 

and of course – those who managed to get their hands one some of that glorious sauce took fully advantage of the situation.

 

SO… They did a public apology, and yesterday they released a GREAT AMOUNT of The Sauce to all of their stores so that everyone can have a chance to try it. I went last night after work, and got to try it… and also got to do a fun little photo-shoot with my babe.

The Sauce… was okay. Nothing special. But the hype… well, it was enough to get me to put my pants back on, put on my high-top converse and tie them up, and drive to McDonald’s (which I never go to) and buy a 10 piece nugget order to get 3 packets of the sauce.

Good job Rick & Morty. You’ve exposed many truths in us Americans with this bit of entertainment which inevitably became a social experiment. Thank you.

Streamer of the Year

when I started streaming last year… I was completely new to the entire experience. I was not an avid watcher of other streamers… I didn’t REALLY see the potential in playing video-games professionally, or being that kind of personality. I did it because… I needed a creative outlet, I love video-games, and I started out during an emotionally distressful month of that year, and streaming helped me get through that; you know, the pre-production, the excitement of being “LIVE” – hanging out with friends who cared to watch and be there for me (shout out to Neil Shuford – love you bud).

Now… shortly after I started streaming, I began to see what kind of content was out there – I was honestly not very impressed by most of it. My entire life has revolved around Entertainment – I’m from a circus family, I went to Orange County High School of the Arts for Piano Performance – I got my degree in TV/FILM and Theatre, and I currently work as a Video Producer full-time for Frost & Sullivan… there’s a lot of crap out there getting a lot of undeserved attention. But then I ran into The Doc… I instantly found new inspiration. This guy really takes live competitive gaming to a new level. His character, with his over-the-top life-style and personality just finds its way into your heart. In just a year, this guy managed to rank up 40k LIVE viewers. Other great streamers have struggled to grow that fanbase in a decade.

I don’t know this guy – but I’m so proud of him. I know how hard it can be to engage an audience, especially one of that size. He truly deserved this award, and I hope his career just keeps growing from here. Like he says “He’s already half-way up the mountain, and he’s just getting started.”

 

Juan Gabriel Tribute – May he Rest in Peace

His music has played a huge part of my childhood – often played at my Abuela Sarah’s house in the background. He was a great talent, and it was a great loss the day he passed away.

Last year, my sister-in-law Olimpia Cabral Medrano asked her family members to record themselves singing one of his songs, and to share it with her as a tribute. I realized I’d never learned any of his songs to their entirety. So I decided to sit down, and spent a few hours learning “Si Quieres” – one of my grandma’s favorites. I recently gave it a few edits, and re-uploaded it to my YouTube page. I hope you enjoy it!
