Download a new Bang Data track, free

New song on the cumbia tip from Bang Data, with lead singer/rapper Deuce Eclipse. ‘Que Se Mueva’ is a bit of a departure from the sound they showed on the excellent ‘Maldito Carnaval’ EP that came out last year, but the result is dope nonetheless. Definitely worth a free download. Also check out the other links below for two recent songs that showcase Deuces’ versatility on the M-I-C.

R.I.P. Office Kitty (Nov 2008 – Aug 2010)

Like too many cats and dogs in Nicaragua, Office Kitty’s life started off hard. When Flor rescued the little orange furball and brought him to the office, he was undersized, undernourished, unwanted and covered in dirt and fleas. We cleaned him up and tried to come up with a name, KittyZompopo and Handsome Tiger were some early options, but finally we settled on Office Kitty. I’m not sure what kind of things Kitty went through before he found us, but as he grew older he was always kind of a mean little bastard, but that was just Kitty. He played rough, because his life was rough. But we always loved him because he was our mean little bastard.

Kitty had always been mischievous, but when the Hecho office moved to its current location in Los Robles, he started getting in to more trouble than usual. The neighborhood cats didn’t take kindly to the new kid on the block. One day we found him covered in blood with scratches so deep on his head someone’s first reaction was “Oh my God, you can practically see his brain!” We got him all patched up and he was healing fine, but a few days later he showed up again with fresh wounds joining the old ones that had been ripped back open. We tried to keep him inside, but Kitty had always been stubborn, too independent for his own good.

As time went by, the fights died down, but we started to notice that he was losing a lot of weight. He would only eat his food if someone was watching him (or if it was chicken from On The Run…) and he barely drank any water. After the vet again, Kitty came home and just sat on a shelf in the bathroom and wouldn’t move, wouldn’t eat, wouldn’t do anything. He was taken to the vet one last time and kept overnight, but in the morning he passed away. Poor guy. Even though he was an asshole a lot of the time, peed on all of our beds (multiple times in some cases) and scratched everyone who petted him, Office Kitty will be missed. He was one of those family members who was far from perfect, but at the end of the day, despite all his fucked up idiosyncrasies, he was family and he was loved. Rest in peace, Kitty.

Guaro Pelón: Guide to the World Cup of Fashion

World Cup fashion statements, “so-bad-they-are-good,” never go out of style. For many competitors, if you can’t be one of the most talented players on the world’s biggest stage, at least you can be recognized world-wide for looking like a weirdo.

Rigobert Song – Cameroon

Alexi Lalas – USA

Jose Perlaza – Ecuador

There is however a special breed of footballer who can manage to capture the imagination of the world, as much for their incredible play as their “eccentric” sense of style.

Carlos Valderrama – Colombia

Roberto Baggio – Italy

Ronaldo – Brazil

And then there is this ridiculous douchebag, who defies classification…

Cristiano Ronaldo – Portugal

Rob G’s Super Rad Nica Pics

By now, professional skateboarder Rob Gonzalez is a veteran of skating Nica, having made three trips down with the homie, and fellow LRG skate team member, Chico Brenes. This past March he made his most recent trip accompanied by Chico and fellow pro’s Kenny Anderson, Steve Nesser and Jose Rojo.

The crew got some skating in for sure but made time to enjoy a little of everything Nicaragua has to offer. Here are some exclusive pics from the digi cam of the man himself, Mr. Rob G. You can read the cover stroy on Chico Brenes and his skate trips to Nica here on the website, or better yet, pick up the new copy of Hecho and get zorched live and direct (plus the real copy has even more pretty photos).
