Banksy and JR! MCASD, San Diego | Downtown

Just exited the amazing urban art show @ mcasd downtown; remarkable, riveting, inspiring, bracing, direct, and moving. Don't miss it. The star? Banksy, of course, example opposite from London's V&A Museum.

But you know who steals the show? JR from Paris--Women are Heroes..... remarkable... this tiny video will not do it justice! Go to the show!

Mexico! Infected!!!!!

Perfect, if the idea of "Mexico" was not already contaminated by the race-hate-besmirched climate of USA circa 2010, now Hollywood is piling on with Monsters. I have got to see this movie! Thanks to Tucson-based brainiac Laura G. Gutiérrez, author of Performing Mexicanidad: Vendidas y Cabareteras on the Transnational Stage for the linkaso. Here's the trailer:
