Domingo de recuerdos musicales!!!
Creci en los 80's y como cada Domingo mi padre se reunia con uno de sus mejores amigos de la juventud a cotorrear, tomarse una birrias (cervezas, en tijuas) y lo mejor escuchar buena musica. En la sala, el stereo tocaba a Pink Floyd, Beatles, Iron Butterfly, Ramones, Doors, y a altas horas de la noche a John Coltrane y Mile Davis. En ocasiones en mi cuarto mi grabadora tocaba a Radio Futura....afuera el vecino en su carro con las bocinas a todo volumen se escuchaba a los Bukis, y en la esquina de la cuadra a 2Live Crew!!!

Levi-Strauss applied the structural approach pioneered by linguistics to anthropology, arguing that family relations and belief systems are best analysed as complex sets of interrelated parts. The Savage Mind Levi-Strauss undertook his first fieldwork among Brazilian tribes in the 1930s. After the war he taught in the US, where he befriended and was influenced by anthropologist Franz Boaz. Returning to France to complete his doctorate in the late 1940s, Levi-Strauss published a book version of his thesis, The Elementary Structures of Kinship, which drew praise in academic circles. The publication of Tristes Tropiques in 1955 secured his reputation as a major intellectual. In 1959 Levi-Strauss was named to a chair in social anthropology at the prestigious College de France in Paris. The Savage Mind was published in 1962 to worldwide acclaim. Levi-Strauss's death was announced on Tuesday by his publisher, Plon.

Mr Wan and other designers had been commissioned to make a series of stamps during the Cultural Revolution, a decade-long period of mass political and social upheaval in China starting in the mid-1960s. Taiwan split from China in 1949 at the end of a civil war and has been self-ruled since, but Beijing still considers the island as part of its territory awaiting reunification.
