Pop Music Abroad

Postby Jester » Thu Jul 31, 2014 2:30 pm

Ritmoson Latino is one of the music channels get here at the beach in Ensenada Mexico, on the charmingly-old-fashioned analog cable tv company called Varivision.

Here's a video I just saw this morning, that got me to stop typing and actually start watching:

Yes the production designer has managed to subtly include Illuminati colors (red and black) along with gratuitous pyramids in the background. So yeah...

But still, like quite a few Latin videos, it was different, enjoyable to watch.

I remember back in the day, maybe early 1990's or so, when watching TV in Los Angeles, California, USA I was stunned to find more and better White rock music on Latin TV than on US channels MTV and VH1. I am referring to videos from various obscure White countries in Northern Europe, like Germany and so on, that really do not exist for most Murrcans.

I think pop culture abroad in general will be a completely different experience than in the USA... maybe it's simply due to the fact that I've been completely ruined on, and have nothing but the utmost hatred for, everything and anything related to American pop culture, but I actually look forward to loosening up a bit and immersing myself in all the culture as soon as I set foot south of the border.

For instance, I'd rather slit my wrists than even think about watching American Idol or Dancing with the Stars... but I absolutely LOVE Sabado Gigante and watch it every Saturday night!!!

It seems like it would be rather similar to those American shows, but since my heart lies in Latin America, I can't get enough of it.

Dying to find similar variety shows in Portugues from Brasil... Altas Horas is one but I never know when it's coming on it seems.
