Its New, Its sleek and it comes EN TODOS LOS COLORES!!! Just when we thought Ipod couldn't come out with something better, we were wrong! They have vastly improved the Ipod nano. Redesigned to be thinner than ever, so nobody will ever see it but trust us you will want to show this bad boy off!! Holding up to 2,000 of our favorite musica and entertainment, this new nano has extended battery life allowing you to go up to 5 days of non stop listening when fully charged. Make sure to take a look on the apple website at this new and improved gadget...maybe we can give Mami and Papi some early ideas for Christmas or Three kings day!!!
Ana de La Reguera along with rock group Molotov will host the show in Mexico. Shakira, Nelly Furtado and many more are expected to be there.
Ana's been having a great year: co-starring with Jack Black in Nacho Libre and her relationship with one of the most respected (and cute) journalist in Latino America, Jorge Ramos,
still going strong.

For those of you who do not know -today is the first day of Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month is from Sept. 15 until Oct. 15. According to infoplease.com:
Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15, the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countriesÂCosta Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico declared its independence on September 16, and Chile on September 18.
The term Hispanic, as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, refers to Spanish-speaking people in the United States of any race. On the 2000 Census form, people of Spanish/Hispanic/Latino origin could identify themselves as Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, or "other Spanish/Hispanic/Latino." More than 35 million people identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino on the 2000 Census.
Although we celebrate our Latino heritage everyday on Latweeno.com, this month in particular we'll be focusing on many cultural events.
Don't forget to join us at the Junta Hispana this weekend in Queens!
September 15 not only kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month but it is also the independence day of many of our Central American countries. LATWEENO.COM would like to wish our hermanos from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua a very HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!

At the Toronto Film Festival premiere of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's movie El Cantante Tuesday, Anthony explained why he and his wife work so well together both onscreen and off: "Just simple love," he said.
Lopez proved it when she walked across the stage and kissed her husband on the lips before introducing the biopic of salsa legend Hector Lavoe, which she and Anthony star in and coproduced.
Did their relationship make it hard to work together? "Marc and I met working, so it wasn't really an issue," she said. "We know each other's work rhythm." Another key to their success: "We don't do anything that we don't believe in. … It was a passion project for both of us, and I've been trying to get it made for five years."
Anthony and Lopez play Lavoe and his wife, Puchi, who had a volatile relationship – but those who worked on the film during its shoot last summer agree that the couple were a great team in real life.
Costar John Ortiz said that on set, "They were holding hands, looking at each other with those eyes that people who are in love look at each other with. I think they are just very huggy-dovey. They're very nurturing."
Said producer Julio Caro, "They're very close. It's a tight relationship. You can tell there's a lot of love there and a lot of respect. Working with them was special."
Anthony and Lopez handled playing a dysfunctional couple well, writer-director Leon Ichaso told PEOPLE. The atmosphere on the set was "Fun, fun. Even when he punched her so hard, he broke through her skin. Marc had to wear so many rings, and one of those blows broke her skin. And we all had a good laugh. She's tough."
Lopez has said she'd like to work on another production with Anthony: a baby. "They have everything else but that," Ichaso said. "That's what would make them good parents. They now have the success and everything else, and they would take the time off to enjoy it. It would complete them."

I'm not going to lie you, I watch both the previous seasons of Dancing with the Stars and I really liked it.. But this time around I knew it was gonna be on! Hay alguien para todos...
Let's start with Mario Lopez aka Slater from Saved by the Bell... As expected, he will be the couple to beat according to the judges. He really moved well and obviously has great rhythm
(we remember Slater always dancing in Bayside...lol).
Mario is definitely on his way to make his big comeback this Fall. First Dancing with the Stars, he will also appear in the super edgy FX drama Nip/Tuck and as we reported a few months ago- hosting a dating show on SiTV called the Dating Factory.
Many of you hardcore football fans may be shocked to hear that Emmitt Smith was AWESOME last night. Following in Jerry Rice's footsteps, Emmitt Smith will surely be around until the end of the Competition.
Mr. Clean, Mr. Clean...lol... WTH happened to Joey Lawrence... he was soooo cute in Blossom. His performance was ok last nigh, but We'll be watching him and his head very closely.
And Lastly Miss Vivica A. FOX was sizzling last nite!!! She's one of our favorites... Keeping it fierce!!! Work it Vivica!!!!

- Football season has officially begun. The Arizona Cardinals opened their new stadium with a win against the San Francisco 49ers.
I got my school schedule. I kind of like it. There are a lot of benefits to it. For example, I get out at 1:30 on Mondays which is great. But I have to be in school 20 minutes earlier this year which sucks. But I have to be in school by 10:10 on Thursdays which is also great. Too bad I can't enjoy that because I'm on the ultimate Frisbee team. It's the big sport at Beacon. I'm not sure if I mentioned that I went to Beacon. Anyway practice is at 6:30 in the morning. So I'll be at school any way. But I guess it'll give me time to sleep in the library or do some homework that I might not have done the night before. So I have mixed feelings about it all.
As for the classes themselves, I have Mr. Jacobs for history which BLOWS SO MUCH! I had him last year for math and he was such a P**K. I hate him SO MUCH. I got digital film which is awesome because I get to make my own movies this year. I don't have to take global this year. Now it's American history. Personally I would rather global. I don't like American history. I take Chemistry which should be fun. Making things explode and what not. I love English class; always have. I like to read and then discuss books. I was also promoted to the next level of Spanish which is cool. Most people can't understand why I chose to take Spanish if I'm Latino and already know it. But I want to learn to speak proper Spanish. Castellano is what they teach us. It's the Spanish that is spoken in Spain . I really like the class itself because I learn a lot. I never knew how to write in Spanish, but now I can write in Spanish almost as well as I can write in English.
I went school shopping with Matt the other day. I got everything that I needed which is a relief. It was a good day and Matt and I got a chance to talk. He told me he didn't mean to ignore me. He also said he only started hanging out with those other kids because he felt he didn't fit in with out group of friends. I told him that was bull and he should have just said something. I realize that just saying something is the obvious answer. But why is it that when it's you, you never seem to think of it? You always think if you do say something, things will go wrong in someway. Well point is Matt and I have patched things up which is good.
Well later that day we met up with Colleen and Kyle and went to go skate (yes I do skate board; I'm just learning so I suck but it's fun so I keep doing it). We had a lot of fun. It was getting late so we decided to go and get pizza. While we were at the pizza place we were all talking and laughing. Matt did his impressions of people like teachers or his mom. Colleen laughed and play fought with Kyle. Kyle laughed and pretended to be hurt when Colleen hit him. And I sat back and watched. I laughed a lot. It was the most fun I had in a long time and we weren't even doing anything special. Just hanging out and having pizza. Then I began to think, these are the best days of my life. Someday I will tell my children stories about when I was learning how to skate or about getting pizza at Sal and Carmine's with friends. I was feeling nostalgic about things that weren't even over yet. Is that possible? At that moment I suddenly began to appreciate me youth in a new way and for once I wasn't in a hurry to grow up. Then I felt bad about all of the years that I wasted wanting to be older. For once I wanted to stay 17 forever.
Emily and I are still in the same position as we were in before. Where stuck and I'm not sure if I should put in the effort to get us unstuck. At my age I shouldn't be committed to anything serious. I should be exploring my options. But I think I actually love this girl. I think that's what really scares me. I fell so different when I'm with her. When I'm with her all of my doubts about us leave and I'm genuinely happy. Should I condemn my happiness in pursuit of something that might be different? Not necessarily good, just different. I think I'm going to talk to her about this soon. I am happy when I'm with her don't get me wrong. It just seems like there are way to few opportunities to be with her recently, and that can't improve when school starts. We don't go to the same school.
If anyone has any advise I'd love to hear it. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org . It doesn't have to be advise, if any of you guys would like to ask me a question or would like to get something off your chest you can e-mail me and I will respond no questions asked.
