La voce delle immagini
The power of suggestion

When we last met, a brigade of gremlins cut-off our transmission and then moved on to bigger and better things, like say, making a Pineapple island paradise emit the siren sounds often heard across the Olive Oil fields of The Holy Land.
In a New York Minute we will return to the Tale–of-the–Tape between Ali Velshi and María Hinojosa, but first, Marianne’s regulations require that we begin our segment by covering the French Press brief, and so, our next presenter “needs no introduction”, here’s your host, Gael García Bernal in the role of the one and only Alex Trebek.
Anygüey, dear ebdo crowd:
do you like chocolate?
Para que lo que sigue no parezca un Copy–Pasta, debo dar credito a publicaciones XXI, y su nueva aventura en los kioscos de periódicos en Francia; debo tambien anunciar que en otras noticias de la French Press, “la clitoris” de los kioskos, la Revista CAUSETTE, dejo por unos momentos de ser estimulada, y a lo mejor por eso parece que la revista dirigida al mercado de feminas curiosas y abiertas había sucumbido en la Guerra por el Espacio en los kioskos de revistas en Francia; sin embargo, un juez falló en favor de las Causettes y el tribunal dictó que la revista de las hijas de Lilith continue divulgando la libertad y la expresión sexual de las mujeres en general, eso sí, con la consigna de que esa empresa resuelve cómo liquidar deudas. En otras palabras TOMA CHOCOLATE Y PAGA LO QUE DEBES.

And now, page two:
— As i was telling you, Ali, this is very painful to say, but Immigration officers are over-stepping their bounds and jurisdiction by policing the streets like cops.
— When they engage in that fascist fashion they are no better than the corrupt cops of L.A. in the 1980’s. I mean, before Rodney King became what we today know as a “hashtag—name—your—Cause”, at the time the L.A. cops took it upon themselves to form their own little “clicks” to solve the Crack Epidemic that The Ronald Reagan Administration dropped in on The City of Angels to pay for his illegal war.
— Which as everyone now knows, gave us the urban phenomenon of the “maras” that Donald Trump now wants to profit from.
— You know Ali, last year at the 25th Anniversary of the Rodney King verdicts, Eric Garcetti, the Los Angeles, mayor, he told me that his biggest concern about the on-going rhetoric and response from federal law enforcement agencies on municipal jurisdictions is that people on the streets are getting fed-up, Ali… “ya están perdiendo la paciencia”, Ali… D’ya know what —the Staff is Saying? Or do you want a Copy/Paste Scenario of the “gremlins” that are about to surface on the whole of Elvis’ “Promised Land”?

Anyway, Ali, it’s MLK’s Birthday’s Eve… enjoy a Chacha con un Cha-Cha… or a Chacho if that’s the way that your paddle board veers, in any case —It’s a MLK weekend; and to celebrate, here’s Natalio Reyes Colas…. Raza!
1. With regards to the Power of Suggestion:
If Victor Burgin, and my intro to Phenomenology credit hours at
BrUTEP sorry, Zita, at UTEP ever thought us [the staff] anything, is that An Image Is A Virtual Event occurring between Material Realities and Psychological Spaces… in other words, after all it’s said and done all that remains is a picture and a cutline, if you as a non reader (not you, Zita) are still wondering what this motherfucking explanation means, i give you, Valérie Maveidorakis, (Burgin’s Translator) who pegs the analogy as the musical chords of say an ukulele, to the lyrical chords in a song; so, whatever lays in between those two sensorial manifestations (the Material Reality and the Psychological stimuli), which your ear drums perceive is what will remain for posterity, es decir, —a virtual event. Think of it like this: those who are not willing to copy and paste the CONTEXT of HISTORY are condemned to repeat it… or something like that.
— … but speaking about how the Devils (and monsters) are in the details, the staff returned to their Sabbatical, and both The lovely Sarah Silverman and yours truly, return to measure The Shape of Water with an image that suggests that the Axolotl and the janitor had a baby girl and this is her shape:
