José José’s big break came on March 25, 1970, when he represented Mexico in an international song festival, the “II Festival de la Canción Latina” (Latin Song Festival II, the predecessor of the OTI Festival) with an amazing performance of the song “El Triste“. The performance of the song was so impressive that caused tears, standing ovations, expressions of amazement and cheers from Angélica María, Alberto Vázquez, Marco Antonio Muñiz, the judges and the spectators in the Teatro Ferrocarrilero in Mexico City.
The fact that José José got the third place shocked the audience.
After the hit of “El Triste”, his popular romantic ballad style mixed with a unique voice made him the star of stars in Mexico. He started his first international tour through Los Angeles, Miami, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Argentina. José played the lead role in small movies like Sueño de Amor, Buscando Una sonrisa and La Carrera del millón.
Recently I came across a book which was a recommendation from a senior colleague at work. The Object-Oriented Thought Process by Matt Weisfeld. Although the first three chapters can seem a bit basic at first glance, they help to remind ourselves and reset in our minds what a true OO approach to a given problem should be.
Here is the Conclusion for (summary) Chapter 1 – Introduction to OO Concepts:
Although this is a development and technology blog, I could not help but to spend some time writing a few thoughts regarding the death of Los Angeles Angels rookie prospect pitcher, Nick Adenhart, who died at the tender age of 22 years young, hours after having pitched the best game of his brief major league career.
Nick Adenhart was a man I never met and one who’s profile and image was not readily fresh in my mind. After all, He was a rookie pitcher that attained the 3rd spot in the Angels rotation because of injuries to their top 3 pitchers. To be fair to Nick, he did have a pretty good spring training and he did come into the season as the 3rd starter.
I decided today that I would start a blog, like many other people before me and no doubt many more after me. It shall be about my experiences as I traverse the world of Technology, bumbling and stumbling in my daily life as an Applications Developer and IT Consultant.
