The irony of course is that Che hated artists…and city full of them seems to love him.

I wonder how Che, as a communist, felt about his name and face being turned into a commodity…

See The Lives of Others. I recommend buying the DVD so you can see the interview with the director.

The Lost City is a marvelous movie. Surprising that it was made, given what it says about politics.

How do you know if the percussionist is cuban?

They always play the shitiest conga!

I wonder why.

But, but but but Obama and the democrats are different! Besides a saxophone is such a small thing to give up, today.
