Si Una Vez

Posted in art, artists, experimental video, life, music, san francisco, WTF by the consummate on August 30, 2009

I love Selena. Selena represents so much hope and cross over. Ah what a beauty.

Here she is performing Si Una Vez – notice the way she moves and communicates. What a performer.

My friend Holly, pictured below, dressed up as Selena one Halloween. I was floored and impressed. Kinda bummed I didn’t think of it before but really, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery (alluding to possible Selena costume this year).

Speaking of imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, check out this version of Si Una Vez.

Integral Yoga

Posted in spirituality, yoga by the consummate on August 29, 2009

“What does the term ‘Integral Yoga’ mean? The very term ‘integral’ reminds us of integrity and, also, that there is a neutral, tranquil force, which has many faces and is all embracing. Integral Yoga is good for a worldly person or for one who is totally dedicated to spiritual life. Anyone can follow this method to gain at least some benefit. Even in the worldly sense, a business person can become a better business person, a sales person can make more sales, and a doctor can improve in his or her field, and so on. Why? Because Integral Yoga serves all the different aspects of the individual: the physical, vital, mental, moral, intellectual and spiritual.

God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.”

– Swami Satchidananda

I will never have dairy again. I will never have dairy again. Ok maybe a bissel slice of cheese once and a while but I will never ever consume a vanilla ice cream date shake from Charlie Brown’s in Littlerock, California AGAIN.

Never.

Jane Birkin

Posted in fashion, film, life, music, relationships, sex by the consummate on August 19, 2009

Sometimes I wanna be that bitch Jane Birkin. Part of the whole bitch factor is sometimes you want to force feed her and shake her so hard until she stops it with that deer in the headlights look. I use bitch with the utmost respect. I mean, she had a Hermès bag named after her. She has three different babies’ daddies (some of the most talented men of her time). She was the skinniest bitch around, often times scantily clad in public, boobies in full view and made orgasmic sounds on record (banned from the top of the pops).  More over, she just went for it, with no fear. She is still performing today. I’d like to hang out with her, buy her a sandwich.

Angel Baby

Posted in life, music, neighborhood by the consummate on August 14, 2009

Not sure if my readers understand how serious I am about golden oldies aka “old-timey” music (in particular “lowrider oldies”). It’s a major passion. Catch me at the Make Out Room in SF on a Tuesday night in sheer ANANDA (bliss). Nevertheless, Angel Baby by Rosie & The Originals is a classic tune we all know and love.

It’s cultural influence is still thriving, hence the contents of this post.

Picture 8

My homegirl from Ladies Lotto, Naomi Robbins (pictured below), puts out a mean podcast on Lost In Paradise. Her pseudonym, Angel Baby. She is on fire and consistently pulling out all the stops, her collection & continuous DITC cannot be topped.

❤ Naomi. Such a nice Jewish girl. ❤

In 1961 the movie Angel Baby was released starring Salome Jens (pictured below). Please note I have yet to see this film but by the looks of this image, it’s next on my non-existent net flix cue. Since I’m in LA right now, it’ll have to be Rocket Video or Vidiots.

Here’s a photo of LA’s “sick ass Angel Baby” – she is standing in front of her portrait by Estevan Oriol. By the looks of it, she & I could become really good friends.

For those of you familiar with the Inland Empire, you may know the radio station 99.1 FM. Angel “Baby” Rodriguez, a long time host & East Los Angeles native, kicks his old skool show every Sunday. You can listen to it live via the internetz!

And of course,  this post-modern reverence session would not be complete without the following video.

Peace out Angel Baby.
