Sin Nombre

So my moviehead Carlos L. gave me the heads up on this flick and I followed up to see if it would be something I'm interested in. I'm a fan of foreign films and I gotta say, the plot line sounds amazing. The whole movie centers around two people, a young guy MS 13 kills his gang leader and on his way out of his area to escape the rough life, he meets a girl traveling with her father and tio from the Honduras traveling to the U.S., going up through central America through Mexico. In the middle of everything, the two young people fall in love. Watch the trailer, you'll see for yourself how gritty the flick looks and the plot of sacrificing to gain something is something we can all appreciate.

PLUS, the movie was made by these 3 attractive men... who are all award-winners... that's always a plus and a sign of a quality flick.
Cary Fukunaga

Gael Garcia Bernal

Diego Luna

Excuse the bland-ness of my blog right now, I got real tired of what I had before, so I'm going thru testing a few things. I may export my blog to Wordpress, I'm not sure. I'm starting to see how limited things are here on blogger, but maybe that's just me. Any recommendations on how or where I may get this bloggy blog lookin ship-shape?
This girl here, Diana Lorena, she's got a beautiful voice. Very smooth, and with the guitar, quite the melody. Check out her singing 'Hay Amores' by Shakira. Wish I had a talent like this. :]

good point

So I only recently discovered Shawn Stussy has a blog? I felt like fuckin retard. But I started going through his blog, clicking the older posts link, and the man keeps his posts real simple, with a pic and a few sentences. Always well-worded, and for the most part, I found myself agreeing with a lot of it. Respectfully, the old man has got taste.

'She Wolf' Shakira video

Ehh,, it wasn't that creative of a video. I never had in my imagination that she wolves danced in glittery red caves. Or did interpretive dances at the end. But Shakira is one bad ass female who can MOVE those hips. And I DO love the song.

Headin here in a few hours...

Any guesses? I know it's just some semi-cool skyline, bright lit skyscrapers. Headin to Detroit today in a few hours. Have a 4 hr flight to St.Louis, then a 3hr layover, then an 1hr45min to Detroit. I know I JUST took a vacation to SF with the fam, but this is a personal vacation of sorts. Got the time off from work, so I figure why not head out to MI to visit Teal and her parents, my aunt and uncle, who always keep me laughin. Plus the Nana is out here, so it just seemed like a win-win. She's outta rehab and back on the wagon,, and wittier than ever.
_detroit institute of art?
_Zingermans in Ann Arbor? Nothin like a good jew deli, ha
_Cooler weather vs Phx? You ALREADY know.
_good conversation with fam?
_time for me to think and reflect?
_gettin into trouble wif Teal?

CHECK. I've been on this lowkey feeling of suffocation here, and I think this will be good. Teal and I lookin nada alike though, Ima mixed Mexican, she's Italian, NO MATTER THOUGH. ha. Time to get shit crackin.
