This movie is coming out this week, and I have some mixed feelings about it. Yes, I'm glad we Latinos seem to be having a little more mainstream media exposure, yet it's still the same stereotypical roles, and then again it's just a teen movie right, or is it? I wonder how damaging roles like these really are to our Latino community, or if it's actually doing us some good by putting issues we as a community are currently dealing with out for the world to see and try to understand... hummmm? I don't know, I feel like it's good to have roles played by brown peeps that aren't necessarily those of maids, or cholos and such, so that other non-color people can see that we too have rich stuck up valley girls, and we too can sport "real" Prada and don't just have our tias and abuelitas sewing that shit in garment factories for pennies on the dollar... and although I understand how cholo or maid roles can feel like they're being over played, I actually quite enjoy films that have characters I can identify with, cuz I for sure can't identify with these Prada wearing chicas, but I can with some cholas! I mean what's the difference between the old "negative" stereotypes and these new "rich girl, can speak Spanish, embarrassed of their culture" roles? All I'm saying is that I'm sure there's a way to create a film that will carry a positive message, with well thought out characters that don't reinforce stereotypes but that we can still relate to and can help show the world how bad ass our culture and Raza is, right? Anywayz, I'm done ranting, I just hope this movie is not as messed up as Disney's "Beverly Hills Chihuhua", I can't fucking believe they made a sequel to that shit too, fuck you Disney cuz that shit is hella not cool... I guess brown peeps are taking over Beverly Hills or something!!!
and like J.Lo says "Love Don't Cost a Thing"... cuz you never know when you'll be going from Prada to Nada, hahahaha!!!

Trucha con esas rucas ayyyy... They don't fuck around!!!
Although I don't condone senseless violence, I do believe in self-defense... and to tell you the truth there is nothing like the adrenaline high you get when you beat a bitch down, there's nothing else like it... but I'm older now, I know right from wrong, but it's still sad to see these young morritas think and feel the way they do. That used to be me, so I only hope that these homegirls were able to survive the gang life, grow the fuck up, and realize that there is so much more to life. Shit, I turned out okay, but don't fuck with me cuz you WILL get checked!!! lol

My homie Frankie Quiñones just released his new Funny or Die comedy sketch video called "Cholo Whisperer" and it's fucking hilarious!!! Frankie and I used to work on the same block years and years ago, and we both grew up in Oxnard, Califas as kids so we got that cholo connection going on... I'm super proud of everything he's accomplished as a comedian, he's definitely representing for us Chicanos and peoples of color... Keep doing what chu doing homie!!!
Also, check out Frankies website HERE for upcoming comedy shows in your hood, I promise he will make you pee your pants!!!

OMG OMG OMG!!! I can't believe this is really happening... Rio Yañez and I will be part of a group art show along with our favorite Chicano Comic artist Jaime Hernandez of Love and Rockets!!! This is like a dream come true for both of us, and one more thing to scratch off our bucket list... What a way to start the new year!
I posted before about Jaime Hernandez, see HERE!!!
Here is a little peak at the comic arte Rio and I have been working on for the show... just imagine more,bigger and in 3D!!!
This will be my first time showing at MACLA or in San Jose for that matter and I really hope that some of you can make it out and support your favorite Breezy and Rio the Great!!! Also, I will be turning 27 yrs. old that night and I would love to share a drank in celebration... this chola is getting old!!!
I want to end this post by sending a shout out to Rio Yañez who just celebrated his 31st birthday a few days ago... Feliz Cumpleaños Rio!!! Thank you for being my biggest cheerleader, for inspiring me, for being la bomba.com, and for allowing me to be a part of your wordefull and exciting Chicano Art World!!!
Homies Por Vida!!!
It's hard for me to fully express my disappointment and frustration with Arizona's law makers... last week they passed HB 2281 witch bans "Ethnic Studies" in the states K-12 grade classrooms. I cannot emphasize how important it is to be able to learn about the history of our peoples, of our ancestors, and to be able to find pride and empowerment in that. It's such a sad and scary time in both Arizona and the country. Here is a great article about HB 2281 that I found very interesting...
So now I want to share my favorite Save by the Bell episode where Slater finds his Chicano Power!!! I feel it's a great example of why having Ethnic Studies in our classrooms is so crucial...
FUCK ARIZONA'S ETHNOCENTRIC LAWS... WE NEED TO FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT TO LEARN OUR HISTORY, OUR CULTURE AND THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF OUR RAZA... TIERRA, JUSTICIA, Y LIBERTAD!!!
STAY BROWN HOMIES!!!

From the depth of need and despair, people can work together, can organize themselves to solve their own problems and fill their own needs with dignity and strength.
- Cesar Chavez
This is the beginning of a social movement in fact and not in pronouncements. We seek our basic, God-given rights as human beings. Because we have suffered, and are not afraid to suffer in order to survive, we are ready to give up everything, even our lives, in our fight for social justice. -Cesar Chavez
If you ever find yourself cruising the streets of Echo Parque, or if you're thinking of getting some dope-ass tinta, then you should stop by El Classico Tattoo... the homie Salvador Preciado and his crew will hook you up with a firme placaso. Watcha!!!
