A special MESSAGE TO YOU from Manic Hispanic:
Clean up your act, Chunti.
They’re folks we all know, in a barrio near you. Will El Triste and La Smiley (puppeteer Cain Carias, and his wife, artist Mayra Plascencia) ever find the true meaning of L.O.V.E.?
The answer comes into focus in this silent short from our amigos at Lone Stars Entertainment Jeremiah Ocañas and Gabriela López de Dennis.
It’s Tuesday, and The Madcaps, from Rennes in western France, want tacos from the Taco Truck. In this just-released music video, that means cactus, chiles, Dios de los Muertos, sombreros, mariachis, French approximations of cholos in Pendletons, associated hynas, tequila shots, and luchadores. Plus some ugly-looking tacos.
In the latest episode of Hey Vato!, Chuy gets a mysterious text message full of emojis from a potential ruca, and asks Smiley and his sister Angie explain what the symbols mean.
Sure that fine chica gave you her number, but what are you going to do to seal the deal? Hey Vato’s Chuy gives Smiley a lesson in how to talk to the hynas.
Smiley and Chuy of Hey Vato! hop on the webcam to share their many feels about the apparent end of LA radio DJ Art Laboe’s famed oldies but goodies show – and the romantic dedications that helped “seal with deal” with many a hyna.

Who are the OG’s in the video? Recognize anyone? Has anything changed?
The competition is set for the parking lot behind the bleachers in hot and windy El Monte, East Los, Califas. Can tattooed veterano Rizer put down his mocoso and beat hipster Ben, even if Ben is wearing his magic $3 thrift shore shirt? It’s a thrill-packed race up to the chain link fence and back again and there’s a hyna standing by with prizes. Skip Ventura of Varsity Punks reports.
A card? Balloons? Flowers? What exactly do you need to hook up with a hot hyna for Valentine’s Day, cholo style? [NSFW adult humor.]
