Pictures of the border line by Kinsee Morlan
I found the coolest little magazine yesterday. I ordered a chai latte at my favorite little cafe in Zona Rio, then stood there feeling awkward because I was the only customer and there were about 15 employees staring at me. To avoid the awkwardness, I picked up a newspaper and pretended to read it even though I can only read about every third word or so. I was lost in translation as usual until I found a tiny (as in three inch by two inch) magazine called Statt (that’s a link to the Statt editor’s myspace page, I don’t think they have their website up yet).
Statt is in Spanish, too, but it’s easy to understand and it contains an unoficial guide to Tijuana, which I plan on following as soon as I have time. It also has a profile on artists Oslyn Whizar and Edgar Mendoza, a bit of poetry and even a few pages for notas at the end. My favorite part is the mag’s back page, a list of recommended songs to add to your playlist.
The owls go…Architecture in Helsinki
Yo quiero una morena para mi…Zemmoa
Can’t tough this…MC Hammer
All good choices, really.
