During my visit to London there was an American Apparel rummage sale in which over 25,000 people RSVP'd to attend on facebook. During the first 15 mins of the sale 3 people were arrested and 10 police officers were injured. Yay!!  (click here for this ridiculous story) 

A friend on facebook got a kick out of this in which he said.. 
"I'm pretty sure hipsters will destroy the world one day, over a pair of solid colored stretchy pants."

Then he directed me to my new favorite website! Look at this fucking hipster.

Enjoy and remember, it's not worth getting arrested over some safari print tights and buddy holly glasses. 

Here are some of my favorites. 

 “I’m not trying to brag. I’m just saying, I knew about Cat Power before anyone else did.”

“Thank you, but we prefer to be called Hipspanics.”

Have a good Monday!!

Bad food.

The Señor and I both got some pretty sick food poisoning from a restaurant in downtown Albuquerque on Monday night. We were pretty miserable and most likely will not be eating in the restaurant that rhymes with caucasian toodle car.
So, after a lot of fluids and no eating, I have bounced back hungry as hell!! However, I'm still hesitant on eating anything after puking my guts out.

Anyways, I hope everyone else is feeling alright and doing well!

We became spontaneous extras on the show and we made the FINAL CUT!!!!
You have to squint to see us, but we are there!!

Here are some photos from the last shoot of Ugly Betty!!

Banksy in London

While in the London neighborhood of Angel, Danielle, Al and I tried to track down a Banksy Piece and thanks to Paal and his amazing tracking skills we were able to find one! It has been modified from it's original state by King Robbo who has an ongoing art feud with Banksy and has modified several of Banksy's original pieces throughout London. However, despite the slight adjustment it looks pretty good! 

Here it is!!!

First photo is of the original piece
The rest of the photos were taken by yours truly!

For more info on this piece click here 

(Original photo--not taken by me) 

Music Tuesday--Hocus Pocus

While on my travels to Europe I picked up this CD from French Hip Hop group Hocus Pocus in Paris for Pato. It was his only request and I have to say, It was a damn good one.  

Check em' out!!!
