fridabedIn 1950, photographer Gisèle Freund began a two-week visit to Mexico – and stayed for two years.

In Mexico City, Freund hooked up with artistic power couple Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Her black-and-white photographs of the pair are now available in the newly published Frida Kahlo: The Gisèle Freund Photographs.

From the party who brought you

REPUBLICAN LETTER TO IRAN!

No shit. We grabbed all the text and images from your House Judiciary Committee’s website as soon as we saw it so we could present it to you in all its animated GIF-y wonder. We made it better, though, since the GOP geeks apparently don’t know how to resize GIFS, even though they’re all GIFs of white people! And they do not — I REPEAT DO NOT — like President Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

This webpage is called “AT THE FLICK OF A SWITCH”

tacos-villa-corona-breakfast-burrito.0.0Here in Los Angeles, we like breakfast burritos. We like the breakfast burritos so much that breakfast burritos can be enjoyed in Jewish delis, Chinese restaurants, Greek diners, burger stands, sushi joints, lunch trucks, Mexican restaurants, old-school coffee shops and fancy places near the beach.

LA.Eater, for example, just published a list of three dozen breakfast burrito destinations, which includes Mid-City 24/7 Lucy’s Drive-In (Gustavo Arellano’s go-to place for chile relleno burritos), Anthony Bourdain pick Tacos Villa Corona in Atwater Village (photo, above) and ∼$12 burritos at the The Farm in Beverly Hills which are filled with aged cheddar cheese and applewood smoked bacon.

But breakfast burritos are an anomaly in some parts of Texas, where breakfast tacos are the norm. [Mas…]
