“iSeo es mi alter ego. Ella duerme en mi interior y cuando se despierta, cantamos, componemos melodías y nadamos en una burbuja.”[translation by me] → iSeo is my alter ego. She sleeps within me and when she awakens, we sing and we compose melodies, we swin in a bubble
–via Pitchfork– “I decided to visit Georgetown, Guyana for the first time the town where my mother is from. She, herself has not been back for 30 years, 3 years before I was born. I tracked down family members, including my 92 year old grandfather, who I had never met before. In this video you will see our first ever meeting.”
“Sounds, sights, and sceneries during Cradle Duende's performance at the 6th Bicycle Music Festival, the largest 100% bicycle-powered music festival in the world, at Old Cabin Meadow in Golden Gate Park. Cradle Duende is a combination of Kezmer and Flamenco to be coined 'Klezmenco" with a new twist of latin, reggae, and ska influence to get people dancing when necessary.”

“I use a manual typewriter — and the United States Postal Service — almost every day. My snail-mail letters and thank-you notes, office memos and to-do lists, and rough — and I mean very rough — drafts of story pages are messy things, but the creating of them satisfies me like few other daily tasks.”We have this in common. As a matter of fact I have an affinity with postal offices. Even when passing through a town, I like to stop by and send a postcard, or two. The first time I visited Mexico City, I was lucky to be near it during business hours and got to go to the main postal office near the Zócalo, across the street from El Palacio de Bellas Artes. Amazing! I sent two postcards to the north of Mexico which took over 3 months to arrive and well, that's just another story altogether.
“No one throws away typewritten letters, because they are pieces of graphic art with a singularity equal to your fingerprints, for no two manual typewriters print precisely the same.”“For less important doodles in text, the kind that go no farther than your desk or refrigerator door, the tactile pleasure of typing old school is incomparable to what you get from a de rigueur laptop.”
