You Know Where You Will Be on April 13nth!
Where will you be this MONDAY afternoon!???? You're going to jump on one of California's glorious interstate paved electro-glide highways and jet down to the Cal State Fullerton campus (ok, huevón, here's the map treasure trove) and get your nalgas to McCarthy (!) Hall 238 (campus map) at 4pm (sharp!) to treat yourself to the intellectual lucha libre of the century! It pits the author of Ask-A-Mexican and Orange County: A Personal Memoir against the scribe best known for Tex[t]-Mex and The Hurt Business: Oliver Mayer's Early Works PLUS [+]: The Screaming Gusanito de Califas, Gustavo "Si Voy a Perder" Arellano versus Guillermo Memo "El Macho de Tejas" Nericcio. Hide the children and call out the riot police, this to-the-death duel promises to have Southland tongues wagging as Arellano, the prince of tights, and Nericcio, the Lord-of-the-Ring, try to out-do each other with feats of clever, daring-do! The dynamic duo of Chicano camp and post-movimiento Mexicano wonders will also, get this, be reading from and signing copies of their books, so bring out the checkbooks and jars of pennies for some hot discounts. Arellano will be signing body parts as well, so bring along your sharpies!
