The past couple of weeks the Date Farmers have been showing at 24Fifty Gallery in SF. I've been a fan of their work for a few years now and since I work two blocks from the gallery I stopped by to check out their latest work. I love their art it's so Califas, Chicano, Cholo, Native, Religiously, Pop...Wacha!!! :

I went to the San Jose Flea Market today... I spent my day eating churros and fresh fruta, buying some cool stuff, and walking in the heat for hours cuz that place is huge. Some cool things I saw:
My favorite booth at the flea market is called "Time Warp" and they have the best collection of Cholo memorabilia. I'm like a little girl in a candy store when I'm there. They have the biggest collection of Oldies, and freestyle music it seriously makes my head spin. They also have dope Chicano art, books, and movies. If you're ever at the San Jose Flea Market make sure to stop by and say hi, they're really cool folks.
I love this Lowrider bike booth. They got a all kinds of bike parts and accessories, as well as already built bikes. I wish a had one... I think building one might be one of my future projects.
There were a bunch of booths selling t-shits with clever paisa/chicano/pop sayings and graphics. Here are a few that caught my eye and cracked me up a bit.
Ahhhhhahhhhhhahhh cracks my shit up!!!
Ahhhhhahhhhhha, I hella have relatives and friends that call "Kornflackes" the cereal by the paisa name "Konfleis", I do too sometimes.
Brown humor, love it!!!
I grew up watching El Chavo del Ocho, I love that show... brings back hella childhood memories.
I want this one for my birthday, hint hint ;-)
Anybody up for a pony ride? Anybody?
This other booth had all the latest cholo apparel hahaha. I don't know why I have a weak spot for cholos wearing Charlie Browns (pictured above) they always get me, damn it!
They had row after row of shelves packed with Ben Davis and Dickies pants and shorts. I don't wear the pants anymore cuz I'm trying to be more lady like and wear dresses and shit, but I did buy a dope Dickies jacket for the winter.

A couple of weeks ago the homies from the art collective Trust Your Struggle had a show at D-Structure and so I walked down the street after work to check out some art and support the homies. Here's a few pics from "The Black Show"
Cyphering outside the show cuz that's how we do!!!

My Breezy RoxC Brown and her boo and good friend of mine Matt Lucas came by to support the TYS crew.
Congrats on a very successful show!!! Keep up the good work TYS ;-)
