This series of pictures are from a book called Guardians, captured by photographer Andy Freeberg.What's interesting about the pictures is the relation between the guardian and
the art piece, they either become partof the painting and some of them suggest younger
versions of themselves.
They are the guardians of the country’s masterpieces, but also of much more.
This series of photographs reflects the singular role that these women play in
both the Russian art world and society as a whole.—from the introduction by Clifford Levy,
Moscow bureau chief of the New York Times

Spanish grammar is a be wee more complicated then english... NO, really a whole lot more
complicated, you got yer accent marks, the different pronunciations, the phonetics, the silent
H, the confusion between the s-z-c and a whole lot of other stuff that just kinda drives you mad.
The only thing that can get you to a good grammar is reading. Here was my "oda", to the
[J] ODA A LA GRAMATICA

para quan do terrmine la orásion,

Yesterday I went to see the last free show of Los Niños Estelares at Executive Manolo.
Composed by El Duque Anacardo Fer-Caguami and Dario Constaín Reyes.
"Their music could be summed up as singer-songwriter carribean social
experimental electric acoustic comic punk new wave folk rock disco rap
poetic neo-pop. Regularly Darío composes the music and Fernando writes
the songs, however, their artistic creations are a result of a symbiotic
collaboration between the two. "
Their songs vary from nostalgic melodrama to social sarcasm. Below are a few pics and
videos from the show last night and an official vid of the duo.

por las deudas
por los hijos que estan po venir y abortar
por la comida que si pudiera no comeria por que como quiera
me estoy muriendo todos los dias
por toda la mierda que voy a comprar sin razon
por mis amigos
por el novio que insite mis impulsos
por los amantes que sonsaque
por mis padres
por las enfermedades
por toda puta responsabilidad que nos obliga a olvidarnos de esto."

"Son las pequeñas posibilidades de lo imposible, lo real y lo ficticio siempre
han sido uno mismo, ambos son construidos, uno surge y otro muere con el.
Son pequeños instantes, momentos fugaces que se hacen en nosotros imágenes,
así como las imágenes de unas vacaciones cualquiera."

Dazed Digital features several recognized people within the art community to heat
up a debate on the celebrity culture and its ephemeral existence. Below a short preview,
go read it here.
"Ben Lewis: One of the really interesting things about our culture is that
we think celebrity is a kind of value. If someone’s famous, they’re good,
particularly if they’re an artist. That’s a very solipsistic aspect of the art
world - if an artist has reached a wide audience, they’re marvellous because
art never reaches a wide audience, so any artist who does has done a
fantastic job and we should really admire them, and not criticise them
because they’ve achieved this wonderful goal of celebrity.Celebrity is a death
sentence. When you start making art about your own celebrity, it very quickly
becomes art about the vacuousness of your world. We shouldn’t applaud
artists who embrace celebrity; we should look on them with horror and disgust.
Tate’s Pop Life exhibition should have been called Pop Death, because it’s a
collection of all of the worst art that’s been made over the last ten years."

the net and pictures, designs that I've done myself. The image that I have today, is a
picture I took of apiece, whose artist name I don't remember the name ( if anybody
does know who he is please let me know) that showed at Circa back in April. So just to
clarify, the background is my wall of irony/how i feel/whatever-the-fuck-i-want-to-
show-today. I won't be giving credit for the images that will go up, cause they won't be
up too long.

FINALLY gave the blog a much needed visual update. I still have to tweak some things,
you'll notice some of the content dosen't fit cause it was set for the size of the previous
template. I'm still trying to figure that out, so please patience with me. I also have to add
the blogroll(IMPORTANT!!!) and a link to mu potfolio. I may need a HTML for idiots, if
anybody wants to give a hand with that, your more than welcome to. What I'm most excited
about this design is that the background will be changing every few days, depends on how
fast I get bored (or attached) with the current BG. You'll see that every week It'll have
different images, so don't be alarmed!!!!
WHAT DO YA THINK!??!?
*Update: Already added the link to my portfolio.
You can see it in the sidebar right there on top of everything.

I found this excellent site a few months ago... ok, about a Year ago, and never hesitated to post it. Guess I was somewhere in that very severe state of mind at that time. I'm better now, don't worry. Chek it out.
When I see smooth or soft things, I get a strong urge to rub them on my lower lip. Freshly buffed nails, my dog’s ears, silk shirts, the back side of a cd, laminated book covers, the list goes on. I think that my lower lip is a better judge of softness/smoothness than my fingers.
When ever I start a new loaf of bread, I can never eat the first piece. I must save it until I reach the other side of the slices so that the two end pieces can be together. I feel as though they should spend their last moments together.
when changing the channels on my T.V. i have to touch every other button so they do not feel left out. or if my hand relaxes and i accidently touch a few i have to make the amount of times ive touched all buttons equal.

Ive just finished and incredible read that dropped on my email today from Not just a Label. With a title that stars off the article right on track, Fashion_for_Loosers talks about the fast pased fashion industry and the need to have us constantly sucking ads, buying unlimited crap that will eventually be useless to us and harmful for the rest. Just like the quote from Vivianne Westwood in the article:
“Buy less, choose well. Don’t buy things for the sake of it because then everyone looks alike….I offer no choice but to ask for the end of indiscriminate consumption. If you have to choose something, save up and choose well.”They also reference "The Generation M Manifesto" written by Umair Haque of Havas Media Lab. Excellent writing overall and I think that entering the new decade is starting to finally unfold or rebel at what's been a crazy "you are, if you buy" era. The whole manifesto below and you can read the complete article here.
Dear Old People Who Run the World,
My generation would like to break up with you. Everyday, I see a widening gap in how you and we understand the world — and what we want from it. I think we have irreconcilable differences.
You wanted big, fat, lazy "business." We want small, responsive, micro-scale commerce. You turned politics into a dirty word. We want authentic, deep democracy — everywhere. You wanted financial fundamentalism. We want an economics that makes sense for people — not just banks. You wanted shareholder value — built by tough-guy CEOs. We want real value, built by people with character, dignity, and courage.
You wanted an invisible hand — it became a digital hand. Today's markets are those where the majority of trades are done literally robotically. We want a visible handshake: to trust and to be trusted. You wanted growth — faster. We want to slow down — so we can become better. You didn't care which communities were capsized, or which lives were sunk. We want a rising tide that lifts all boats. You wanted to biggie size life: McMansions, Hummers, and McFood. We want to humanize life.
You wanted exurbs, sprawl, and gated anti-communities. We want a society built on authentic community. You wanted more money, credit and leverage — to consume ravenously. We want to be great at doing stuff that matters. You sacrificed the meaningful for the material: you sold out the very things that made us great for trivial gewgaws, trinkets, and gadgets. We're not for sale: we're learning to once again do what is meaningful.
There's a tectonic shift rocking the social, political, and economic landscape. [...] Here's what it looks like to me: every generation has a challenge, and this, I think, is ours: to foot the bill for yesterday's profligacy — and to create, instead, an authentically, sustainably shared prosperity. Anyone — young or old — can answer it. Generation M is more about what you do and who you are than when you were born. So the question is this: do you still belong to the 20th century - or the 21st?

Great collage work. Doesn't have much info about himself, but has great quotes.
"The past can be seized only as an image which flashes up at the instant when it can be recognized and is never seen again. … For every image of the past that is not recognized by the present as one of its own concerns threatens to disappear irretrievably."
Walter Benjamin, Theses on the Philosophy of History.

The other day at my lunch brake I was flipping through my copy of the Nylon Street Style book, looking at some pages that a friend wanted me to see, cause I was helping him with an outfit for a show. As I was passing the pages, I noticed that one of the boys that are featured is Robert Pattison. Yes, I'm bringing him up cause of all the twilight, new moon ( I'm not so excited to see it ) fad. I never recognized him before up until until now, and I've got to say I kind of give him some thumbs up for his off screen-ragged-james-dean-hairy-mess look.
For the Robert P fans, here ya go:

I needed a little coin purse to hold my ID and money, cause the one I had was falling in pieces. Luckily I ran into a store called SIMBIOSIS on etsy, that's one of the very few that i found on my search with a unique selection of coin purses. You can see that they are carefully made, with hand picked fabrics that are what make this pouches special. The one I chose is a comic strip made by the textile designer Michel Miller called the dysfunctional family. You can guess why I picked this pouch in particular, love the parody that Miller uses to critic the social standards of life.
