How to live like a king for very little By THOR HARRIS 
1.  Don’t smoke cigarettes. 2.  Drive old Japanese cars.  Easy and cheap to fix & they run for fucking ever.3.  Buy most of your groceries from the produce section.  Most of that other shit is not actually food. You don’t need it.4.  Ride your bike instead of driving as much as you can. You need the exercise and gas is expensive.5.  Don’t have kids.  They’re not miracles, they’re people.  7 billion is too fucking many. Find some other way to give your dull existence some meaning. BTW they’re expensive.6.  Get your clothes from thrift stores.  With the physique you’ll have from riding your bike, you’ll look hot wearing anything.7.  Learn to fix things.  Tons of great books and youtube vids on fixing anything. Or ask an old dude. People used to fix things.  No shit.8.  Learn a trade – Carpentry, plumbing, electrical, auto mechanics, tailoring, computer/electronics repair, something They can’t fucking outsource.  No one gives a shit about your Masters in Dostoyevsky…. fix something, dumbass, fix something!9.  If you like booze, drink at home with your neighbors.  Drunk driving is for assholes, rich ones with lawyers.10.  Do people favors.  It’s called Cooperation. It’s how the world worked before money. They will return the favor, or someone will. No shit.  This really works.11.  Make things – Look around you.  What do you see?  Yah, shitty stuff made by impoverished enslaved people far away.  Pick anything.  Make a better one.  People want good shit.  You won’t get rich, but you’ll get by.12.  If you live in America – don’t get sick and avoid injury.  Wear your fucking helmet and put lights on your bike.13.  Find work you love.  If you can’t do that, then find a job where you love the people.14.  Junkies and addicts are like toddlers.  They just want to shit all over you and everything.  The messes they make can get expensive.  Avoid them if you can.15.  Don’t buy shit on credit, remember what happened to America?  Cash only, fuckers.  Can’t afford it?  Don’t fucking buy it!16.  Preventable expenses -  STD’s, abortions, DWI’s, lung cancer, head injuries, speeding tickets, cirrhosis of the liver.17.  Don’t go on fancy dates if you’re not fancy. Most people kind of despise the rich anyway.18.  When you go see shows, bring a flask in.  That way you can afford to buy a record.19. If you had told me 15 years ago that Coca Cola would put tap water in plastic bottles and motherfuckers would BUY IT …… No fuckin way.20. Don’t get cable. Asshole. There is nothing on. I promise. $100 a month ? Fuck no!

Whoohoo, first academic journal article is now on paper. I’m in a book-thing! Yay!
From the introduction by Betsy Enriquez:
"Maria Alicia A. Sarmiento’s ‘Spaces for Stardom: Urban Spatial Practice and the Feminization of Flanerie in the SMDC Advertising Campaign" explores, among other concepts, how the ad campaign exploits reconfigurations of the domestic sphere within the so-called New Economy, and the shifting role women play within it. Sarmiento’s reading of the ads exposes the insistence of the ads on traditional images of women as consumers and decorative elements, while concealing their role in the prosperity that made the present capitalist consumer culture possible."

Since I managed to get a pretty stable connection from this side of the room (I’m still living like a pirate with the whole internet situation [arrrr!]) I figured might as well snap a shot of something that makes me happy. 
I moved into this place exactly a year and a month ago, and before that, I did not own any of these pictures and had never purchased anything from a gallery. When I still lived with my mom, my walls were covered with these silly 5 peso instructional and motivational posters from the Merriam Webster bookstore or with band posters ripped off the walls at gigs.
I’m not even allowed to tack things into the walls, because they’re not really mine, I’m just renting them. But that’s also the point, being the one paying the rent, I’m also the only one who can explain this shit to my landlord should I decide to pack up and leave this apartment.
Besides that, I guess tacking things up also means I like it here. The first thing I bought was Rob Cham’s “Y”; I got lucky with the Kris Abrigo pieces, which I got from Young Star’s art drive for Yolanda survivors; the last was Gina Osterloh’s “Turquoise Room” and (not pictured because it’s a little to the left) “Camouflage in Black”, both of which were given by Louie.
These things came at a time when I was writing about art and acquisitions more frequently (hence, the free prints). Looking at the market right now with all the heat and the hype and auction block success stories, it’s easy to get distracted from the purpose of a picture and how it contributes to the dignity of a space - which comes with arranging things neatly because you can call something yours. At least until the lease ends.

“You learn to see irrelevance as it starts to yellow a painter’s complexion like the early stages of a cancer. You can hear the money laughing in its ripped jeans, all the way across the room. You can almost taste an artist emerging in a dealer’s mouth.”
