MARINA:

Our friend Mars O. asked us to post this…Why we love Maria Felix.

Quotes by Maria Felix:

“I cannot complain about men. I have had tons of them and they have treated me fabulously well. But sometimes I had to hurt them to keep them from subjugating me.”

“Look, young lady, I have been very busy living my life and I`ve not had time to count it.” (upon being asked her age by a journalist)

“Money is important in life. It does not give you happiness, we all know, but it sure calms the nerves.”

DIEGO: Pocho (pocha fem.) is a pejorative term used by native-born Mexicans to describe Chicanos who are perceived to have forgotten or rejected their Mexican heritage to some degree. Typically pochos lack fluency in Spanish. Among some pochos, the term has been embraced to express pride in having both a Mexican and American heritage[1] asserting their place in the diverse American culture. The word derives from the Spanish word pocho, used to describe fruit that has become rotten or discolored.

Saliva

Thalia please go back to making racy albums like your first one! Love it!

I’ve been intrigued by how dynamic, relevant, and frankly, undervalued, the artists (and their practices) seem to be. It’s time to pay more attention.
