What do all these things below have in common?




They all share the fact that these are things that I'm writing about! Real soon in fact! Coyotes, as in the human smugglers that bring those from Mexico into the U.S. THEN, a trip to the yard with some old school graff heads while they paint some trains. The point of view of someone who made 300 illegal trips from MX to the US and back in a year. Then, the words of an old school writer who's seen and participated in both the New York graffiti scene, which is known for being heavy with the graff, and to the West Coast, NY's opposite.
     Two seperate stories, but equally as valuable. Stay posted.

New Retna

I fell off my art posts for a longer than a minute, but I'm back with it!
If you know me, you know Retna is one of my all-time favorites. Personal hypebeast, haha, naw but he's well-known if you keep up. This post is for you too @DOC_1990., because you need his new-new. If you're gonna keep up, do it right! Ha ;)

His latest from his show Desaturated




One of the coldest handstyles I've seen.

Public service announcement: Artheads, ear to the streets

Phoenix, I'd just like to make a public service announcement. Towards the latter part of this year, there will be a one-of-a-kind art show going on. Acryclic Squid (Yea, you haven't heard of them, YET. Pay attention for future references) is collaborating with local Keep A Breast foundation to raise funds for breast cancer awareness. They have some big name artists coming in to do pieces, I should know, I wrote the press release for it yesterday. So trust. All centered around these:

Just a word up. Please and Thanks.

New Insa

Yo Insa, I just want to know, what is the method to your madness? Ever consistent with one hell of a banger installation, your style and choice of color scheme makes me hot all over.


          Peep his newest, "Success Somewhere Between Two Golden Sphincters" (ha, sense of humor I see)
 Consisting of: 3 walls, a floor, a ceiling, spraypaint, a naked woman, and baby oil- London, 2010.

PS. Is it just me, or do the golden sphincters remind you of some gold rope jewelry from, persay, Cubannie Links? No disrespect Annie! Just a similarity I'm seeing! Ha.
PPS. Thanks for keeping me up on game  Clout, that's why you're one of my favorites.

You know me.

Man I fell off for a minute with my preciosa blog. And another important blog, http://www.chicksonpowertrips.com/, but I'm coming back! Was/Is hustling with some real writing/journalism.

But I feel the need to discuss a certain simple comment that was made to me yesterday, and its been stuck in my mind all day today.

"Yea, well, you know me."---ME
 "This is true, I do know you."---HIM

While that comment was meant casually, I'm sure, it just got my wheels turning. Yea I believe he does know me, I'm just wondering  as to what depth. I mean, its been a year and a half. Of us doing what we do. A semblance of something, but not really. There are some things he knows. Yea I have two freckles in my left eye, I enjoy reading a lot, that there's nothing more that I like than a well-constructed sentence, to turn the heater on if I come over because I get cold feet. Things in that streamline, I'm sure. I don't doubt that.
          Those are more surface facts, and surface anything only works for so long. At least for the men/women that value more substance to their relationships, friendships, etc.
       I'm observant, so I gurantee suga that I've picked up a lot on you. You though, observant at times, details don't stick to you like they stick to me.
       I've had an attitude of complaceny with what we been doing, complacent to a fault. At the begginning I thought it was best, and now I see this being a hole thats going to take a while to get out of.

You just called. I think I'm coming over.
Naw, not tonight.
Sticking to me, myself, and I this round.
