Yeah, you read right, the famous rapper who died in 1996, participated yesterday at Coachealla’s festival.

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual three-day festival celebrated in Indio, California during the last weeks of April. Rock, Indie or Hip-Hop are the most listened styles there.

Coachella brought a special surprise for his fans in this 2012 edition. People were anxious to see Eminem, 50Cent, Snoop Dog or Dr.Dre. But what they didn’t know was that Tupac Amaru Shakur, the best rapper in history, would appear on stage!

Thanks to the hologram technology, the legendary artist shared the scene with the present rappers. And that caused shock in the audience.

 

2Pac is not only the most known rapper in history, there in USA is a symbol inside youth. So people who attended this event said to the reporters that is the best and most amazing thing they have ever watched. I agree with them, I would do anything to see it.

Because imagine the feeling of being inside the crowd, watching ones of the best rappers of the moment, and then, suddenly, lights out and a shape of 2Pac emerges singing his best song.

At the beginning you think is real, you have “Pac” in front of you, jumping and dancing, sharing gestures with Snoop Dog. You just simply don’t know is an hologram, you just don’t know what the hell is going on, but you are enjoying it, you are in your cloud.

Personally I don’t know what’s next after doing a dead person look real, but is an evidence of what technology can do nowadays.

  • Here I post a video of 2Pac, well, of his hologram, singing “Hail Mary” and “Two of Americaz Most Wanted”

What a blog can be

 

Year pass, freedom “grows” and technology advances. In what concerns to us, the Press, which is linked to technology and freedom, obviously evolves too.

Behind the censhorhip that people, in special journalists suffer, they have discovered a tool to surpass it and a way to amplify their field of action. The blog, this website is a platform where you can write, share and post whatever information you want. Words, pictures, videos…

The blog could has so importance that some goverments in some countries like China have started to censor them and to punish their authors, because thanks to the Blogs journalists are publishing the ugly truth, writting objectively and claiming for example political corruptions and failures.

This way to make journalism is available to all, it’s easy, free and interesting. I consider it a tool to express whatever and on the biggest stage possible, THE WEB. The place where anyone can read you, the place where evreyone is. With this type of communication you interact with the author, is a 2-way communication system.

Definitely, the Blog can be “Reality as it really is”.

This is not a question to answer, is just the difference description of Froilan’s accident given by diverse newspapers.

As we all know, Felipe Juan Froilán de Todos los Santos de Marichalar y Borbón, known as Froilán, is the 13 years old son of Elena de Borbón and Jaime de Marichalar. Obviously, due to his age, he has starred some antics and huffs.

The last one led him to gun shot himself. He received a bullet on his foot from a short distance, while he was “practicing” with his father Jaime de Marichalar.The point is, whose is to blame for this accident? The naughty innocent kid? Or the irresponsible father?

This is a clear example of an irresponsibility act. The fact of having your 13 years old children playing, or as you say “practicing” with weapons (in this case a firearm) is not proper of a normal education. So the one who has to be judged (in the sense of being evaluated) is the father. Here comes the role of the Press and the audience.

Reading two distinct newspapers I’ve found that casually, the one who is closer to the Royal House and the “extreme” right-wing parties, don’t demand and question the fact of Marichalar teaching how to shoot to his young son. With beautiful words and unnecessary stories they complete an article where they don’t claim why the hell is a 13 years old boy playing with gun shots.

They know how to divert the attention of the audience by saying that Froilán has a special character or telling that he is on vacation, but they don’t say anything about a child using a weapon that  is not allowed to use.

To top his bad report, they (La Razón Newspaper) they have disabled the comments on the new, because they know that people will reply on their coverage. So we can’t comment on their focusing. A way of censor our opinions.

Luckily I could found another point of view of the new, with other focusing and goal. This time written by El País newspaper. In this report they “criticize” the act by the Royal Family members and specially they make the point on the legality of the success. There is a law which prohibits to use a gun shot if you are less than 14. So here is an infringement that should be punished, as any other infringement would be.

From my point of view, apart of the health of Froilán, what is important is to judge the action of an under 14 boy using a gun. But in this case, because of his social position and name (of the Father, Jaime de Marichalar), that point is being kind of unnoticed by some people. But thanks to the report by El País we have a useful graphic that shows the crime committed.

Here are the links of the same new given by the different sources.
