14 de marzo (el día del quequi)

Much like a 5th Avenue brat, today America gets to celebrate Pi. Now, the only reason that the hearth of rock-n-roll gets to eat pie today —as a form of celebration, albeit not an official one— is simple, Americans like to buy their liquids in gallons and write the date on their credit cards with this format: 3/14/16.

Timestamp 20h10The next Pi day, under the above scheme, wont come for another Century.

But tomorrow, Americans could very well be getting a second round of dessert because a sector of the U.S. population will be given the chance for a second serving in the form of an Exceptional Cake, which by the way,  series like Fox News always seems to be pitching… Republicans out there in the heartland, just to let you know: the kitchen is running low on cake.

Go ahead "Murica" eat your cake.

In Mexican politics, the world of wrestling becomes an idiom.  This is  because  “the show” or “the spectacle” is always fixed before the gifts at the “events” are even handed out to the electorate. Each individual gift usually consists of a sandwich (un lonche) and a bottle of Pepsi ( y una pecsi). And so, after every election, after every reform, after every political event the saying goes: Lo único que es verdadero en México: es la Lucha Libre. In France, the word for Wrestling is: catch.

Go ahead “MURICA eat your cake and mix your WWF-Nitro-WcW Wraslin’ with your Politics.

Go ahead “MURICA set another standard and make The Men In The High Castle a reality.

Go ahead, “Entertain” the rest of the world with [our*] exceptionalism.


* Disclosure: as a former U.S. Army soldier, i too contributed to that exceptionalism that i so often criticize —i guess that makes me a hypocrite in the land of the FREE, which in the 1980’s [i believe] allowed Hollywood the freedom to give us an updated clone of Sammy Davis Jr. swinging sixties gang: the brat pack. I still believe in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, i just refuse to live with an exceptional filter in front of my eyes.

Add the numbers. Again… and please

Live, from rue des Rigoles*

El Cobre de la fruta jugosa de Taiwan | The "best before" date (04-11-16) was coming up, and so i decided to pop open a fancy sealed and "tamper resistant" tin box presentation of an old brand of chewing gum. Now, before i ask you to pay attention to the Net Weight details, which are found at the base of that tin box, please let me tell you that the canary yellow vessel, is in fact, spacious enough to house at least 3 times the number of gum sticks that a global enterprise (Wringley Taiwan LTD) delivers in its fancy and prestigious presentation choice. So inside that box, just to recap: the investment for you money is being short changed. Packaging costs by the way, are usually estimated [according to my old maquiladora working friends in Ciudad Juárez] to account for the most expensive costs of a very large sample of sugar-based products, so to put that into perspective, imagine going to the store and purchasing a One gallon bottle of something, but instead of you receiving [or getting] a full gallon for your choice, the container is filled with only 12 ounces of 'that' liquid something. Wouldn't you be like WTF!!!… you Prestigiously Wrapped trump —of nothing. Wringley's packaging practices remind me of another kind of product, minimal in its delivery…and much like little christmas finger-size sausages— this product is also wrapped up in a useless and fancy package. Yes, you guessed it: printer ink cartridges, loads that usually don't last as long as they promise… and the people who assemble and fill the product at the factory —like the people in Ciudad Juárez— usually get short-changed by the bosses.

….now, before i ask you to pay attention to the Net Weight details, which are found on the base of that tin box in the picture, please allow me to inform you that the canary yellow vessel is in fact, spacious enough to house at least 3 times the number of gum sticks that a global enterprise (Wringley Taiwan LTD) would have you believe, should you base your choice, of course —solely— on a fancy and very limited pretentiously presented product.

So inside that box, just to recap: the investment for you money is being short changed.

Wringley’s packaging practices remind me of another kind of product, minimal in its delivery, basically those companies are charging us for the air trapped inside the nearly empty container…and much like little Christmas-themed finger-size sausages— the product is also wrapped up and sealed in a useless and fancy package. Yes, you guessed it: i am referring to printer ink cartridges, loads that usually don’t last as long as they promise… and the people who assemble and fill the product at the factory —much like the working people in Ciudad Juárez— usually get short-changed by the bosses, who are in their empty brains —and hearts— usually trying to emulate a con man who wants to lead the United States of America.

be right back: ¡KONFUPANDA!!! Watch this space.” Seriously, watch it and pay attention.

     El mundo, —al menos El Mundo de la libertad, El Mundo sin autoritarismos, El Mundo Occidental— se nos puede poner completamente de cabeza. Francia, y Los Estados Unidos coquetean, eso sí; cada quien por su lado con el fascismo, o ‘facismo’. Y lo que son las cosas, ya viendo todo desde el reflejo de un retrovisor, me pregunto, ¿cómo le hará el corporativismo para anestesiar a la razón, en masa?.

Sea como fuese, o como lo guste escribir, la amenaza en las urnas no es un facsímil de otros tiempos, ni un herror hen hortografía. Lo que ahorita se puede comenzar a cimentar, [por aquello] de que en el remoto caso de que la extrema derecha [en los dos países que se jactan de celebrar La LIbertad]  ganaré más votos a favor, sería pues para despejar dudas —otra vez: fascismo. No hay de otra. Y eso es grave.

El mundo de las noticas | FASCISMO

Mix media | Por un lado la captura es un uso justo de los medios, y por el otro, la foto del periódico, Le Monde, se capturó en uno de los miles y miles de estanquillos de revistas que hay por la ciudad. Lectura no falta, tiempo es el que no sobra. Ojalá y que los nietos de los gabachos y los gringos,  no tengan (digamos en 70 años, en alguna playa) que disculpar a sus abuelos por haber permitido la instalación, —otra vez— del autoritarismo criminal creado por intereses corporativos, una vez más: Fascismo.

De cualquier manera, en muchos otros espacios ya se ha mencionado el precedente de un efecto pegajosísimo que tienen, particularmente sobre El Estado méxicano, las tendencias de Los Estados Unidos y Francia; es más, hace poco La Jornada, o la revista Proceso —ya no me acuerdo cual— publicó una serie de contenidos sobre el movimiento nacional socialista (los nazis) en México.

Desafortunadamente —yo por mi parte— no le seguí el hilo a lo que se escribiera sobre ese tema ahí en cualquiera de esas dos publicaciones donde sacaron de seguro a balcón, a mucha gente. Repito que a veces, hay más lecturas que tiempo.

Sin embargo, lo que me pude haber perdido no ha de haber sido muy ajeno a lo que me receté con un libro que a Juan Alberto Cedillo se le público. La historia en esas páginas narra —entre otras cosas— sobre una supuesta †riangulación entre una señora, Hilda Kruger, un señor Mario Ramón Beteta (me suena, me suena) y un tal “ratón miguelito”. El último de ese triángulo fue un gentleman de la época de Agustín Lara. Dicen las biografías que fue gracias a su respetable trayectoria en El Partido, por la que Miguel llegó hasta la cúspide de los de Chapultepec, ya estando arriba, se le comenzó a llamar por su nombre artístico de Miguel Alemán Valdés.
