Re: “Bloom Free

Isaac you were born to do this work. As Jocelyn Valencia was born to do hers. Give us more to see, as Sondheim said...

Re: “Bloom Free

Great piece on a spectacular human. Ive been away from Tucson and its important scene for some time, but as I watch from a distance, Jocelyn is magic, the kind of magic needed in Tucson, and this world. Many blessings and continued success.

Re: “Bloom Free

I really struggle with this. Am I the only one who struggles with the problems of being "woman of color in a white patriarchy" while at the same time indulging what arguably presents itself as a misogynist culture with a capital "M"?

To quote some 21 Savage lyrics: "Spray your block down, we not really with that ru-rah shit/Glock cocked now, I dont really give no fuck bout who I hit/Yeah, your bitch, she get jiggy with me/Keep that Siggy with me/Bitch, Im Mad Max, you know I got Ziggy with me"

Maybe, just maybe, the "ugly gentrification" we see in Tucson and elsewhere might, at least in part, have something to do with the fact that people here are getting tired of being exposed to the very themes that hip-hop seems to eternally perpetuate, like all this gang crap, glorification of misogyny, violence and crime ?

Re: “A Peek Into 9/11

Charlie Sheen and the rest of us with a 4th grade education know that 9/11 was indeed a very inside job. It is way past time for the rest of the world to wake up before the wars generated because of the false flag attack destroys the world. Those buildings were imploded with demolition, just like Silerstein said they decided to 'pull' Building 7. Wakeup America have the courage we need to demand a criminal investigation.

Re: “Fun and Games and More

I've been to their gallery in Bisbee a few times and always enjoyed their work. Congratulations on your show! I wish I could be there!

Re: “Fun and Games and More

What a clever curator, to have found Sam and Poe in Bisbee! And then to bring them to Tucson! I'm entranced by their work and I've visited the exhibit three times already. I'm planning to bring some friends to share it with.
