Fuck the Artist's Intentions!

I found this image on an old hard-drive that I haven't used in a while..
Apparently there is a 35mm picture of it somewhere, but this is all that I have right now.
The story is that Pablo and I decided that this was a good thing to write on his wall as a collaboration, back in 2004.. We actually commissioned this girl who was hanging out at the time to draw it for us. It was pretty cool. Her name was Dot, so she had her last name changed to Com. Dot Com.
She signed it, and there is a drawn on frame around it that Pablo Insisted on.. but they can't be seen in the picture here.

Tropical Iconography in Video Games

I have noticed that at the beginnings of alot of video games, all of the imagery is tropical. I don't know why. At one point I had found a petition-style movement to only make video games with blue skies and green grass, I don't have the link anymore.
My friend, and roommate, Pablo Gaviria, who is from Barranquilla, has expressed the idea that truth in the tropics is often very much about magic and fiction. I have also understood this to be the case after reading Living to Tell the Tale, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's memoirs. (Though the closest I have ever been is when I lived in Florida).
