Caracas Chronicles, a weblog in English by local journalist, Francisco Toro. Mr. Toro wrote freelance for the New York Times but recently quit because of his activism in the Opposition to Chavez' rule. The blog is great reporting and very lucid, particularly this post about the reality distortion field surrounding foreign press and their ability to make sense of the situation in Venezuela: "Foreign papers don’t quite know how to deal with [Venezuela's] complex reality".

Daniel Isengart is a cabaret signer who does songs from the 1930s in French and German. I saw him last night at Starlight in the East Village [167 Ave. A, btw. 10th & 11th]. He sings there on Tuesdays at 10pm accompanied by an acordion player. It was quite good. I'd recommend going.
