    I'm getting married today.

  • oey7

    I'm so angry and so pissed right now.
    Today when I woke up after hearing the alarm I let the telefon slip to the floor.

    Thing is it didn't fell in the floor but in a pee jar (for the night) from my girlfriend that was next to the bed and NOT under the bed...

    I was like fuck!

    She immediately said she has nothing to do with it.
    She constantlz leaves things in the florr laying around and one has to be very careful where one steps specially in the dark.

    In this aspect we are different as night and day.
    I'm über angry!!!

    Six months ago she threw me a glass of water that landed on my computer...I couldn't save it and had to buy another one.

    She said it was nothing to do with her...

    This are things that if I was single and living alone wouldn't happen and we are not in a very good phase right now...and now this.

    I feel like telling her to pack her stuff and leave me alone cause for getting fucked like this I prefer to be alone.

    I know that I'm exposing myself but I really need to vent.
    The thing that makes really annoyed is that I don't have money for a new phone right now, I have other plans that I've been delaying...

    So I decided...I'm still with a overheated head...not to have a phone until Xmas!

    • funny story. do you share the bathroom with other tenants? is that why she pees in a jarhotroddy
    • we are 6 in the apartment. she does it out of comodity and also not to make noise during the night.oey

    • do you get to use the pee jar as well, or it is only for herdrgs

    • Pee jar or not. She's not to blame.sureshot
    • Is the phone really dead? Try to dry it first, there are a ton of tuts in net...

    What a great day this has been. Seeing my dad out and about has been completely surreal, just like I remember as a kid. :)

    I came just in time to sit on a meeting with my dad and some gallery owners in the city. It's been 15 days since he got out and he has already received offers for exclusive gallery rights. This particular gallery we visited was an area called Santa Fe in Mexico City, it's pretty much the most expensive section of the city. It's a massive penthouse/apartment that has been converted into a gallery showing artists from Mexico by appointment only. They paid him for a painting they sold last week and gifted him a sick coffee table book. They want to have a very large solo expo within a couple months. This is HUGE. It's wonderful to see the fruits of his work of the last 30 years.

    Posting some pics of the space we visited.

    getting info on one of the pieces staying at the gallery.

    this is actually a double sided painting. this one was done using his hands.

    a bedroom in the back is converted to a studio for artists to work. that's all plastic on the floor. they asked him if he would be interested in working there and he said no.

    this artists made this kitty with smoke. loved it!

    all the paintings leaning on the ground are my dads

    even the kitchen is filled with tons of pieces.

    Today we have an interview with Proceso and another with a French press later.

    High-five-to-self! My wife and I finally found a house in the suburbs and signed a contract today. We were buying one back in September after selling our condo, but backed out of it because of inspection issues. We moved into a rental condo we own expecting to be there for a month, but the market dried up and we've been there all this time, in a little one bedroom with our daughter sleeping in a play-pen at the foot of our bed.

    Hoping to close in a month and move on with our lives. House is in great shape and we are planning on a significant basement project to remove two crawlspaces and expand the basement to the full footprint of the house to add a fourth bedroom, bathroom, a music room for me and all my guitar and music gear, a storage room, and maybe a playroom for our kids. It's good timing... we've got our second child on the way in June so we're really anxious to get moved. Exciting day!

    You need to get a hold of yourself. You're veering into legitimate spam/troll territory with these copy/pasted posts with no context, presented as truth or something original you. It took all of 10 seconds to find the origin of the FitBit post below. This isn't amusing or interesting to anyone here. You might be pumping your fist at getting a rise out of people, but you are all alone in doing so.

    So I'm back at work since Thursday. I decided to take a couple days off to really digest this new reality. Of course I have been talking with him all weekend. Saturday they spent the day in the city checking out museums, his favorite was the Rufino Tamayo Museum of Art. He mentioned that he had never seen a work of art in person. 30 years he has spent studying the masters and learning from books, but has never actually seen a piece of art up close like that. He was 32 years old when he was arrested. My sister told me that they had lunch in the city and they took him out for hot buffalo wings, something else he had never eaten and now loves. I keep asking my sister how she sees him and how she thinks he is doing. She tells me that he is often confused and tripped out on everyday mundane things. He was tripped out when they were in a parking lot and approached one of those parking ticket dispensers. Swiping a credit card and pushing a few buttons and having the ticket come out was something he had never seen and had never thought about, little things like that. She tells me he is totally spaced out sometimes like he has a thousand different feelings all at once and other times he is like a child discovering new things. Yesterday they drove to the Mexican state of Toluca which is near the capital, but at a higher elevation with snow capped mountains, he loved it. They were there to deliver a painting to a client.

    If you were wondering he has made up his mind and is going with the new iPhone instead of Android. lol

    As far as posting on here and wondering about his past and his crimes. None of that matters anymore it's all in the past and seriously nothing you guys write is going to offend me, like at all. There is no secrets and there is nothing that the news outlets in Mexico and the U.S. haven't already reported. Our family has gone through years and years of exposure to every type of criticism or praise that you can imagine. We are so happy, I am so happy I don't think anything could get me down anymore, like for the rest of my life!

    He has not started painting of course he is setting up his studio right now. I am very interested to see what his new paintings will look like now that he is free. For years his paintings have had a dark side to them or a strong political angle to them. He said he couldn't help it, as much as he tried to make happier art it always turned dark. His painting were also dull at times like void of color. It was difficult for him to access a good amount of quality paints. I would place orders for him through Utrecht.com in NYC because that was the only place he liked to buy paints from if he was not mixing his own paints. But that got to be very expensive. I would often treat him with a tube of white oil paint made from Led or Zinc from the website and just one tube was an easy $150. So he had a limited source of supplies. He would make his own knives and spatulas too. Now he has access to the best tools possible. Maybe a dope set of brushes would be a great Christmas present for him but I also want to get him a MBP like a 15" one he has no idea what those things are capable of doing haha.

    Here are a few pics from the weekend.

    In the first one he is with his wife checking out some of the Architecture in Toluca.

    This is him inside the Rufino Tamayo museum in Mexico City.

    This last photo is so powerful and moving to me and my whole family. This is just about an hour after being released. My little sister is holding him. She is 20 and has never known him outside of Prison.


    • pretty amazing how life must be so new for him. Glad this is all happening Hijo and that you get to have more years with your pops.capn_ron

    Hello, I'm Ren.

    Long time lurker of QBN. I found it when registration was closed, years and years ago now, and have lurked most days since. It's a cool place... lots of cunts with good humour, most of the time - I like it. I thought I'd finally sign up and get involved.

    I'm an illustrator and graphic designer from the wonderful shit-pit that is London. Maybe I'll post some of my work in the recent work thread.... Nice thread by the way.
