mexicovers: It's not the end....

It's not the end....


Well my friends I think I owe you an explanation for my long absence from mexicovers, the thing is that I got a full time job a little more than 2 years ago so it became imposible to keep up with all the work that this place needs, I was used to upload 1 album per week, you can say it's an easy job but it really isn't, first I had to buy the record, then clean it, make the transfer to my computer, clean the audio, scan the covers and so on....the process from start to finish took me almost 3 days (95% of the albums here were done that way).

I once envisioned this place to be like a starting point and a reference to all things mexican, specially retro design and vintage mexican music, in order to give people from other cultures a glimpse of what mexican culture USED to be, you know... there was really a time when we had good music, good films, great design and a great culture overall.

Anyways, the sad thing here is that I had a series of (computerly speaking) tragedies:

  1. My hard disks were getting full so I decided to buy a 1Tb Seagate Hard disk to back up everything I had "dowloaded" back from 6 years ago, hard to get vinyl transfers, movies, family pictures, etc., etc.
  2. The new 1Tb disk was defective, so I lost the data 3 days later (data means E-VERY-THING I-HAD).
  3. Decided to replace the faulty disk and got a new one, but at that very same time I was moving from my old house to a new one and found out (the hard way), that the electrical wiring was faulty, so one day I came back from work to find everything plugged in was blown.
  4. I'm using a live CD (KANOTIX) right now, but my hard disks are gone, I don't wan't mexicovers to disappear, but at the moment there's nothing much I can do. So until more prosper times, I'll go idle for a while.
  5. Come back soon, I intend to keep alive and update this place in the not so distant future.
  6. I'll try to answer the mail.
  7. Finally, thanks for visiting mexicovers and remember to play all records only on Stereo Equipment!.

Having had hard disk meltdowns you have my profound sympathy - if you want anything let me know.

We're all only a faulty wiring system, flood, technical malfunction, act of god or vermin attack away from a similar fate.

Hay una pelicula dirigida por Sean penn (creo) donde el personaje dse Jack Nicholson que fantasea con vengar la muerte de su hijo se mete en un bar mexicano a bailar con una stripper... En esa escena suena una version mexicana de un lento famoso, creo que LOve Hurts. No lo tendras en alguno de tus discos?

Siento muchísimo todo eso que nos cuenta. Sé muy bién el trabajo que da pasar un vinilo a CD, con todas las de la ley, es muy tedioso y por eso es admirable el trabajo que ha hecho vd. en este sitio. Lo agradezco infinitamente. En estas rachas así, es mejor aguantarse un tiempo y esperar señales de que las cosas vienen mejor. Conserve el sitio.

Espero verle de nuevo pronto y mejor.

Gracias pòr todo y good luck!

Sr. Mexicant:
Su excelente trabajo debe servirle de incentivo para animarse y seguir adelante. Su labor de rescate de la música mexicana de antaño es muy valiosa. Los contratiempos que ha tenido son parte de los riesgos a los que estamos ahora expuestos en el mundo en que vivimos (globalidad, neo liberalismo y todas estas plagoas). Saludos cordiales.

Es en verdad una pena lo que le ha ocurrido a tu información, ojalá puedas continuar con tu labor de rescate de música mexicana que cae poco a poco en el olvido.

El marco musical al que la sociedad está expuesta actualmente es muy deplorable y banal, pero en trabajo como el tuyo está el próximo paso.

Gracias por los sonidos del pasado!

Just great to see a post here! I've kept the link up, over on The Tuna Melt, 'cause we've all been waiting for your return. Good luck with crankin' the bad boy back up.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you in reference to the Technical Problems (just as I do for the sake of my own data as well).

Keep the faith brother! Your day will return. As crazy as it sounds, I've been making a fair collection of mexi-records up here in Portland, OR. Perhaps someday when the tamales are extra good, and I can keep the dang conquistadores out of my yard I will have some rips to send to you.

You've certainly been good to us.

I know there was a bad run of these Seagate drives...they had bad firmware. Can you update the firmware on the drive? Apparently the data can still be there but the drive won't show up:

Respecto al problema de la perdida de la informacion en el disco duro, si tienes oportunidad te recomiendo que uses un programa que se llama Ontrack, sirve para recuperar informacion, siempre y cuando el disco duro sea legible.

Any idea where I might pick up a copy of Laurent Voulzy's classic song Rock Collection? I'd love to add it to my radio station TheSpanishVersion.Org. That was such a cool song...both the French and Spanish Versions!

The gods offered Clues about my importance, who I am. They occurr on a weekly, even a DAILY basis. The tip of the iceberg is listed below::
Air France Concorde
Christa McAuliffe, Concord, NH
Carnaval's Costa Concordia
Concord:::In the "eye of The Beast"
Downey Savings
90s:: "He gets 4 years.", "(His chance is OVER!!)":::2.1.03 (SS Columbia) & 11.26.03 (Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde).
My miracle of Ocean Beach, witnessed by MILLIONS on the West Coast
Mt. Zion:::Slowly being eaten away until one day paradise is gone forever
Carry That Weight
Unit 731::TSUSHOGO
Zastava Koral

"Something happened (which casued the market to fall to 6500.)" Told managers of CalPers funds to sell/manipulated CalPers' holdings?
Allowed the hustlers who got out of the market at/near its peak 90s, into real estate, out at real eastate market peak 05-07 to buy stocks dirt cheap and get back into the market at 6500.

In the course of decay and deterioration of the favor of the people the gods instructed their clone host tools in corporate to make changes to their products and subsequently in people's lives. The switch to plastic/disposable-based packaging is an outstanding example. Another is the extensive use/proliferation of disposable diapers. Whereas diaper services were the norm during the 20th cenutry a change occurred in the 70s/80s and parents began to incurr evil upon their children, and sadly in some cases think they were "earning" off their own infant children!!!

Anyways, why I bring this up is I am watching the South PArk's rendition of Scientology's dogma. They mention Xena, ruler of the last planet.
Recall I said only the true believers in JEsus will last to the end of the 1000 years and be used to colonize the next Planet Earth (with Lucifer, who will initiate disfavor on the new planet).
Don't be surprised if the last Jesus's name WAS Xena. Maybe a stretch but nothing surprises me.
Perhaps the volcano metaphor suggests destruction by subduction. I have mentioned massive, global subduction as a method of demise in the past.


"Poisoning their brainwashed minds." xtainity brainwashed you. Liberalism is the poison.
The gods used xtainity to demonize Lucifer, ensuring people refused to heed the teachings of THE SECOND COMING!!!. Lucifer is the Second Coming of Christ!!!
xtianity is the product of the Apostle's books of the New Testiment and can't be trusted to contain the true teachings of Jesus Christ. Just like each one of you corrupt whores, the gods could have tempted them with immortality if they lied when writing the New Tesatiment. Then the gods dictated verbatim specifically to parlay into the destructive phenominah known as xtianity.
We have seen the gods engage in similar behavior to keep people away from good religions, with the Jews in Palestine and Muslims recently post-9.11, demonizing both.
This is another of the god's wicked curveballs, their reverse positioning tool extensively employed, utilizing positioning to prepare for the Apocalypse and your "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".

"1000 years with Jesus" may start at different times for different people::::
Medical advances I mention below may already be invented, courtesy of biotechnology, but reserved for the wealthy.
Proof money is not favor:::Not only will they die before the masses, since their clock began sooner, but some of these individuals may have been "guinea pigs" in the perfection of these advances.
Just clone host fakes who were sold they are the lucky ones anyways.

Nobody should have the right to have a forum in my or anyone else's mind. This is an example of incomptenent, piss-poor management by inferior leaders.
