T.J.




I am not a buff on Architecs, however, Teddy Cruz has vision and style that I'm digging. He lived in Tijuana for a number of years where he found inspiration for much of his work today. Check out this slide show and a New York Times article featuring his latest project for a low income community in upstate New York.

Cocksucker Blues



Cocksucker Blues

En 1972 el fotografo Robert Frank filmo este documenal sobre los Rolling Stones, sexo, drogas y rock & roll en su maxima expressión, al grado que finalmente el grupo demando a Frank para evitar la salida del documental. El film se proyectado en gallerias de arte y museos, aunque tambien se pueden encontrar copias piratas en el mercado negro.

CRASH



RECORD MART



Record Mart, Inc.
7 times Square
Irt Subway Mezzanine
New York, NY 10036


La semana pasada tomé una ruta diferente en el metro y baje la 42st (times square) y me lleve una grata sorpresa por que me encontre esta tienda que al parecer es relativamente nueva, venden peliculas, cd's, y demas cosas que suelen encontrarse en una tienda que esta en una estacion del metro, pero lo particular de esta es que tiene una gran selección de Viniles Salseros (de entrada muchos de la Fania).

de ahora en adelante la 42st es una parada obligada!

Last week i took a different route than usual on my way on the subway and went down on the 42 st (times square), there i was surprised when i found this nes store that as any store in the subway sells dvd's and cd's , but they also have this great Salsa Vinyl selection (a lot of la Fania).

from now on 42st is an obligated stop!
