Internet woes and portuguese flows...

After expounding a theory on the typical images associated with Brazilian hip-hop and the social/cultural currents shaping the kind of hip-hop we witnessed in Florianopolis (an atypical image for the Hip-Hop culture associated with Sao Paolo/Rio)...the internet stopped. It stopped for twelve hours. In the most fitting way possible, it gave up. After I had downloaded the google+ app to my phone so I could upload the video I recorded that night in Florianopolis, and written a mini-ethnography on the blog site, it was gone! Our internet is very much a luck of the draw situation here in Curitiba and last night was a reminder of the night at Heifer. We had to tune out, and after talking for a little while, just went to sleep. Soon, I will upload the video of our night experiencing Hip-Hop from Florianopolis as it relates to the construction of urban identity, resistance, and social consciousness for a group not included in the typical imagery of urban culture in Brazil.

  1. I would love to see that video of that Hip-Hop night experience. Anyway, how’s the internet connection now? I hope everything got fixed soon after. It seems like you’re pretty active in engaging in these social and cultural currents, so you need to stay connected with your peers.
