Hmph, hah.

To keep from agonizing from what seemed like another Raiders second half collapse against the Jets last Sunday, the kids and I held a Kung Fu Panda drawing contest. Honestly, I don't even know why they try. ;) ERGO, I WIN!

Here's some vintage (2004) footage I dug up and edited myself out of :). It's the documentation of my graduation show that I had to turn in to receive my Big Fucken Asshole degree. Look how cheap my school looks. Reception footage, including the Trio performing and folks lined up for my Mom's tamales can be witnessed at the end. I brought the chuntiness to school with me that day. It was pretty great.

This video reminds me I need to let go of things...for the right price. ;) I've had a "store" section on my website since I went live with it, but I've yet to come up with a way to take your money. In an attempt to "stack paper," to fund winter months spent painting in Mexicali, taking in the 2009 Serie del Caribe and eating the best chinese food...I'm having a moving sale. If you'd like to help me realize my dreams :), take a look at this super reduced price list and see if there's anything you care for. These are some of my most favorite pieces, ever, that I've held onto for nostalgic reasons y porque, neta , soy cursi. I take cash and if it clears first, personal checks. If need be and upon request, I'll look into hitting the switches on my paypal to receive payments. Click below to check out my sales ad.

FALL(ing short of the) CLASSIC

Alas, I'll always have this...
Lima time and Chicago. :)

<-----I kind of wanted to leave this whimsical graphics interchange format image on the Dodgers (of the NLCS) myspace page. Why do I even have to like things like baseball? Son of a bitch, right now. Why can't I have other interests that are less heart-breaking like hackysack, balancing a checkbook or maintaining friendships? I'm not gonna dance around it, I think the Dodgers were victim of the Sports Illustrated cover jinx. Irrational? maybe. But I don't care none! Hey Cubs fan get away with scapegoating all the time, why can't I? I can't even be mad (past this week) at LA's inopportune slumping of the 1, 2, 4...6, 7 and 8 hitters, because had it not been for their efforts during the reg. season LA wouldn't have leapfrogged the D'backs. You hear that? There's hardly any reproach and rancor in my voice. The callus on my heart must be growing thicker with corns y juanetes. I have the NBA finals earlier this year to thank for that. Flippin' channels on thursday between México trying to qualify for the World cup against some feisty Canucks helped split my frustration between Fox and Univision. Both had shitty results, but there's still hope for el Tri. Would Dodgers having won the pennant even mattered? The Rays are clearly gangster. I'll post that one next spring.----->

Lo rescatable de la serie:
  • Kuroda on point.
  • RHP James McDonald, impressive.
  • Loney good under pressure.
  • It'll be easier to say goodbye to Kent, Penny, Nomar and possibly(?) Furcal. (I say that only in anger, Raffy, I hope you come back-if you're healthy.) I wouldn't mind seeing Pierre and Jones traded somewhere.
  • To be fair, we only won 86 games during the reg. season
  • Experience
That's an open letter to people trying to clown the Dodgers by becoming new found Phillies fans (after rooting for the Cubs didn't pan out) just because their squad is never a player in the post season. Lose it. Try NOT losing 90+ games then get all riled up by way of your twitter. Stop. Hating.

Addendum: Immediately following the series, asi mero senti la decepción, cañon....

A friend sent me a link to a review of the Oro Universal show, the image on the top left is of a recent painting. (click the image for the link)


DODGERS WIN! :) So it's on to the NLCS against the Phillies. And because you never know when the ride will end, I'm a take a minute to revel in the sweep. Afterall, the Dodgers weren't exactly heavily (or at all) favored to win....
