Where the Money Is

by Dr. David Fialkoff, Editor / Publisher

Excerpts:

When asked why he robbed banks, career criminal Willie Sutton famously replied, "Because that's where the money is." In today's "information economy" the money is online. The vast profits of tech giants: Google, Facebook, etc., come from selling targeted advertising. But they couldn't do it without us.

Marx, believeing that factory workers could get along better without the capitalist owners who built and managed the factory, declared, "Seize the means of production!" I, believing that our community can get along better without Big Tech extracting all the advertising profits from the local economy, declare, Seize the means of communication!

Part Heaven, Part Hell: The Mexican Poems of Malcolm Lowry

by Philip Gambone

Excerpts:

The world's "oddities" infused his writing, but also triggered the demons—guilt, loneliness, fear, a pervasive sense of doom—that plagued him his entire life.

"Never in my whole life have I been to a place so fantastically beautiful as this," Lowry said of Mexico when he arrived in 1936. "The people are lovely, gentle, polite, passionate, profound and true."

Lulu's Mannequin Lounge
A New Body of Art
Pop-up exhibit, Sunday, June 23

by Karen Langdon

Excerpts:

It can be tough for a new creator to find her niche in this 3-D painting of a city, already brimming with artists. But one step into LuLu's Mannequin Lounge and you know. This artist's body, er, bodies of art, colors outside existing lines.

"A couple years ago, someone gave me a female mannequin torso. It sat around my house for months. Then one day, I decided to decorate it with my mom's and my discarded jewelry—and that was it!"

Cardinal

by Britt Zaist

Excerpts:

I generally got dogs and cats to draw — an occasional pet rat, parrot or gerbil. And each commission came with a story – sometimes funny, sometimes sad.

I got lucky with the first fighting bull I ever drew, Sangre Brava, such that eventually some people came to think of him as a symbol of San Miguel.

The Cure

by Alejandro Anaya

Excerpt:

A short series of art pieces that, instead of snake oil, would advertise life.

That's Chinese to Me
The Computer Corner

by Charles Miller

Excerpt:

We live on a planet where there are currently 7,164 languages spoken... a lot of those languages can be used online. All this makes it very likely that a lot of those internet users may have at one time or another ended up landing on a web page written in a language they could not understand.

Los Locos Unmasked
Like You've Never Seen It Before

(2022)

by Dr. David Fialkoff, Editor / Publisher

Excerpts:

I think the dancers would find ample inspiration without it quite so loud. I am sure that after following these miniature "walls-of-sound" through the streets for hours, they all have temporary hearing loss, at least.

The parade is the performance, but I wanted to be backstage before the event. The parade is a massive display. I wanted to document a more singular, more intimate experience. I wanted photos of the people inside the costumes.

Crossword Puzzle - A Few Of

Es donde está el dinero

por Dr. David Fialkoff, Editor

Extractos:

Cuando se le preguntó por qué robó bancos, el criminal de carrera Willie Sutton respondió: "Porque ahí es donde está el dinero". En la "economía de la información" de hoy el dinero está en línea. Los enormes beneficios de los gigantes tecnológicos: Google, Facebook, etc., provienen de la venta de publicidad dirigida. Pero no podrían hacerlo sin nosotros.

Marx creía que los trabajadores de las fábricas podrían llevarse mejor sin los propietarios capitalistas que construyeron y administraron la fábrica. Así que, declaró: "¡Tomen los medios de producción!" Creo que nuestra comunidad local puede llevarse mejor sin que Big Tech extraiga todos los beneficios publicitarios de nuestra economía local. Declaro: ¡Tomen los medios de comunicación!

Parte cielo, parte infierno: los poemas mexicanos de Malcolm Lowry

por Philip Gambone

Extractos:

Las "rarezas" del mundo infundieron su escritura, pero también desencadenaron los demonios -culpabilidad, soledad, miedo, un sentido penetrante de condenación- que lo atormentaron toda su vida.

México también se convirtió en el lugar donde la creciente conciencia de Lowry de la dimensión trágica de la existencia humana le trajo un tormento insoportable.

Sala de maniquíes de LuLu
Un nuevo cuerpo de arte
exposición temporal, Domingo 23 de junio

por Karen Langdon

Extractos:

Puede ser difícil para una nueva creadora encontrar su nicho en esta pintura en 3D de una ciudad, ya rebosante de artistas. Pero da un paso en la Sala de maniquíes de LuLu y lo encuentras. El cuerpo de este artista, cuerpos de arte, colores fuera de las líneas existentes.

"Hace un par de años, alguien me dio un torso de maniquí femenino. Se sentó alrededor de mi casa durante meses. Entonces, un día, decidí decorarlo con las joyas desechadas de mi madre, ¡y eso fue todo!"

La Cura

de Alejandro Anaya

Extracto:

Una serie corta de piezas de arte, en lugar de aceite de serpiente, anunciaban la vida.

Eso es chino para mí
La esquina de la computadora

por Charles Miller

Extracto:

Vivimos en un planeta donde actualmente se hablan 7.164 idiomas... muchos de esos idiomas se pueden usar en línea. Todo esto hace que sea muy probable que muchos de esos usuarios de Internet puedan, en un momento u otro, terminar aterrizando en una página web escrita en un idioma que no pueden entender.
