tehuana_dresssqSelected photos of Frida Kahlo’s wardrobe – locked away for half a century – will go on exhibit in London next week.

fridaydiegoaskidsDangerous Minds reports:

After Kahlo’s death in 1954, her husband Diego Rivera shut her belongings in a bathroom at their Mexico City home, the Blue House, the marvelous house they shared—and then insisted that it be locked up until 15 years after his death (which, in the event, happened in 1957).

In fact, the room wasn’t opened until 2004, when Ishiuchi Miyako was given permission to photograph its intimate contents.

The photographs will be on display at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London from May 14 through July 12.

I had to post this after reading that the actors who walked off Adam Sandler’s Ridiculous Six set get tagged as heroes and those who stayed, like me, get belittled.

My photograph (above) shows two of the men who walked off and the lady who stayed. They’re discussing the film’s infamous script, just after they talked to one of the assistant directors about the script.

What’s for breakfast? Breakfast tacos or breakfast burritos?

by Barney Asada March 13, 2015 Cultura

Here 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 […]
