you think its tough now? come to mexico

im in mexico right now. i been here for almost a month. i know understand the whole day of the dead more seeing how there is so many accidents and dead people everyday. Everyday it seems we (my family) hear about some muertito from somewhere. and then there is a tons of pollution here...and i been watching my gradma´s novela which is hella campy but whatever. oh yeah and the theme song was sang by Sergio Gomez from the band K-Paz de la Sierra, who surprise, surprise recently died...i mean killed.

day of the dead, one of my favorite "holidays" besides from new year's and recently thanksgiving. anyways, i had fun if not an akward time but isnt that way day of the dead is all about: facing akward situations? no, i know thats its not about that but you know what i mean. now some art aka installitions aka altars.

this was my favorito, i guess cuz of the floating candles and the pillows.

Wow, hasta de donde llega ese tatuaje!

*pic of a day of the dead carro

i'm up in san pancho visiting friends, going to a party, some art shows and eating chicken tikka masala. back in LA i went to two day of the dead celebrations. at the first one i joined a group of dancing folks parading around Hollywood Forever with hotdog in one hand and beer on the other.needless to say i got mustard all over my dress. we were all sweaty at the end of "parade". i'm trying to find out from what part of Mexico they are from but all i get is something about pacito durangese. then on the actual day i went to see some altar installations but more on that later.

i have this song stuck in my head:

artist exhibited: Daniel Gonzalez, John Miner, Mitsy Avila Ovalles, Txutxo Perez, Jesse Xeroxed, germs, and Joan Zamora.

now if i only had a helicopter

yep, before i regret not being here for the fecal face art show i had to remind myself: no, you cant be in two places in one. nope, not unless i had a helicopter...well you can go see Mika Miko on sunday while i will be seeing them on friday. good. i wont be bored at home wishing i was in san francisco. and i would totally be sad but i know that shit(the fecal face art show) is coming down to LA like it did last year, right?

and besides we have El Tropico to go to, for Shizu's solo show on saturday Aug 4.

i think thats the flyer on the right, and the Mika Miko "bulletin" on the left and their video on the bottom...

boys in the Tenderloin

this was a while ago but whatever. here is some kids in the TL having fun (mostly boys). and there was people give out free crap and of course i drank it all and later had a stomach ache...

see there is kresta holding the free shit.

even at an early age this kid already knows he is too cool for school

boys, boys, boys, i do adore

there was a shooting around this area on monday. something about rival drug dealers. here is another pic of the TL but in the night. i will miss you SF, i will miss you.

diamonds and art

anyways, yesterday i found out about the new Damien Hirst art piece from the world's greatest website. i guess its a human skull covered in diamonds valued at about $99 billion (or £50 million). wow, talk about pricey. you know if i had money i would totally buy it then again, i would just end up wearing it... then get killed.

and another good thing to look forward to when i get home. seeing Melly's Solo show in LA. Here is a piece La Opinion did on her, in español...duh.

i really like this picture they took of her. here is more of her work...

prozac with coke on the side

i wrote this yesterday and then later thought it was none of my business then this whole shit fell apart due to technical shit, whatever:

i was going to throw away this "fine" painting of some prozac pills i did almost two years ago but after seeing what a crappy mess it was i decided that it was best to keep and paint some velvet drapery in the back ground. taking about pills, guess who got arrested again? yep,and you know i think this is kinda sad. i mean the Paris thing was funny cuz lets face she sucks. but this girl, well she can actually do something...this reminds me of this crack head lady i met who knew the whole "rehab" deal like the back of her hand. god, she was annoying cuz she had a medical explanation for every time she fucked up. and she fucked up over and over and over again.

and no, Diane Arbus will not be showing...

my parents picked up all my crap yesterday drove it back to LA this weekend. i also got re-acquainted with my new dog. who i might add is an asshole but he is funny so i guess he is forgiven. he is kinda cute, but kinda ugly just dont tell my sister that.

anyways, i'm moving back to LA next week. i was going to leave later but my mom informed me i have an appointment with immigration so i can finally become a citizen. yep, that means no matter how many more 9/11s there might be (and hopefully won't) i'll never be kicked out. because lets face, thats one of the major fears that many legal and illegal residents of this country have(the laws changing suddenly cuz of mass hysteria against foreigners and its not like they dont love us enough already). see terrorism sucks. anyways, i'm going to be part of this art show on friday (8pm at artSF, 110 capp @ 16th, san francisco) you and your mother should come. the flyer is above.and here is ms. Arbus:

earthquake bitches!

anyways, earthquake today in the morning i would say around 4am. i woke up and felt stuff moving. of course my first reaction was: earthquake dream! then no, i realized that yes indeed a 4.2! ha ha ha ha...of course being the lazy ass that i'm i went back to bed after i "checked" for after shocks and peed, of course. no point of freaking out otherwise you'll just end up dead. my 6th grade P.E. teacher told me you're more likely to die of a heart attack then of crap falling on you. and you know its true if your 6th grade P.E. teacher tells you.
oh and check out the map above it shows 43 earthquakes in one more info on the this website. so remember kids when the big one comes: have your shoes and coat by your bed-side that way you wont freeze your ass off and step on glass while the apocalypse comes. a good habit to have especially if you live in california.

sorry, but i gotta keep up with the Virgin Mary

i had a dream last time that i had a kid, and she/he was really ugly. i remember holding her hand and then going down to look at her face and just thinking: so thats how our genes look together.poor kid. i try to hide my dissapointed face and thought to myself: well maybe if we pluck your eyebrows when youre older, you'll be pretty. the weird part about it is that it was christmas time and we were participating in a posada around the Mission. Yep, walking around Mission Street with a toddler, like it was nothing. Then the "father" joined us, doing the usual "hows your day been blah blah?". its not like we were a couple or anything. nope, in the dream i'm a single mom. and of course i was too busy trying to keep up with the Virgin Mary and Joseph to give a fuck about anything else especially holding a conversation. and besides didnt he know how important this event was to the cultural development of our child? god, shut up! then i woke up cuz i had to pee and thank god with no child in cite. funny...ha, ha, ha, with a sigh of relief.

4th of July because i feel like a hunchback

sure, i should be looking for a job or whatever...but the hell with that. before i forget 4th of July in SF. all day i tried remembering what i did last year before i joined my "party" and their festivities. i still dont remember. anyways, here are some pics. if anybody wants their pic remove just say so:

best kite ever

kids in the freezing water? what the hell? well actually it wasnt that cold...i regretted not having my swimsuit.

tourist beware, in my opinion the F cart is way better then the stupid trolley

the obligatory firework shot from Twin Peaks.

all and all, it was alright except for the next day you find out that some girl might loose her finger cuz some stupid jerk decided to throw an m60 in the crowd at Dolores Park, and then days later you find out about a girl sitting on the drain of a pool had her small intestines sucked out...damn. better then last year though, or at least for me. this time i knew it wasnt the next day.
