Chapo means Shorty in Mexican slang. El Chapo is a gang land drug baron Mexico recently recaptured and responsible for heinous crimes against humanity he says he had zero choices he was poor and poorly educated an under class in poverty is a recipe for disaster for everybody. El Capo is a boss or mafia boss aaarrgh! El Chapo was struck by Narcissus Penn must have known this before interviewing him or El Chapo would never have agreed. El Chapo is responsible for a lot of dope and other stuff going down beyond grass.

Narcissus is a shared commonality of numerous who wield power ill gotten with minimal work education or trials eg Koch Bros CEO of BHP mining giants in Guatemala wielding their unscrupulous power against the poor and dis empowered causing misery and suffering on a global scale. Ordinary folk can be ordinary vain to various degrees you know enjoy costume if in mood which is not really vain at all just keep functioning whereas these people are pathologically vain very neat and tidy to appear clean hide the dirt and they are unable to comprehend suffering.

Hmm he was born on Christmas Day that makes him a Capricorn stubborn old fashioned they are old when young and younger when older can wage psychological war fare in their relationships stick hard and fast to their ways this from personal experience and you can't worry about it too much as the individual is what is important. They do not let go at all easily. There is good and bad all star signs. El Chapo had a terrible father who beat him if that is anything to go by.

Martin Luther King was a starring Capricorn he had that stubborn determination in Capricorns their sign is a goat a stubborn creature actually any Capricorns NONI! has known just do not budge they have a gravitas to them from their metal which is lead. NONI! being Gemini and air sign metal quicksilver finds them generally too heavy going no offense to all Capricorn patrons some star signs are better tolerated by each other than others earth and air not a fantastic mix still can work as Earth needs air. Richard Nixon was a Capricorn really sneaky everything covered up not all Capricorns are infamous or stars just some are extreme and we know our Holy Kitsch! patrons are diverse and interesting naturally as they Holy Kitsch! patrons.

Capricorn's ruling planet is Saturn or Kronos in Greek whose father was Uranus and mother was Gaia goddess of Earth. Kronos when he heard that his fate was to die at the hands of his children ate them at birth he was forced to disgorge them later and El Chapo may well disgorge what happened to the children of Mexico whom he murdered. For Martin Luther King he disgorged the plight of the slain enslaved Africans  so as you can see the metaphor can be used for good or bad. There is a painting by Goya of a monster eating a man either a metaphor for war life on Earth or Kronos Goya knew some tough times and was a visionary.

Kronos also castrated his father Uranus with a sickle or scythe his personal symbol where the huevos fell to the coast of Cyprus into the foam was how and where Aphrodite was born already a woman goddess of erotic or physical love she is Venus in Roman mythology. The huevos part of her birth story changes but the constants are the foam Aphrodite Cyprus and the scallop. NONI's papa hails from Nicosia in Cyprus a nation famed for Aphrodite across Europe the Middle East and beyond and ahem dance parties.

Kronos is depicted with a sickle or scythe same as the Day of the Dead Virgin or Santa Muerte who is worshiped by the poor the marginalized and the more lowly criminals who feel that the wealthy mainstream church has failed them her antecedent is an indigenous goddess of death. All religions have somebody looking after the dead somewhere by way of a symbol. The scythe for Kronos represents Time and it being unconquerable also you can see same scythe with Sante Muerte. Frida Kahlo used to paint the communist sickle on her cast and in her paintings a stand in for the peasants who toiled on their crops for bare monetary return we all have to eat it is our fuel people used to forget that in the past and the wealthy considered farming a lowly occupation now the gentry can farm also we are stuck with mega farms too many chemicals poisoning the water and soil.

Capricorn is an Earth sign and you can see that grounding in Martin Luther King who happens to have the same surname as one of NONI's ex also a Capricorn. Strangely El Chapo always uses tunnels to escape and once again Capricorn is an Earth sign also the town from which NONI! departed to USA is a maze of underground tunnels then changed flights in Texas all on same day El Chapo escaped via a tunnel.

The Mexican people just looked resigned when they made us all wait an age for passengers from Korea to pass through the gates first they actually called them through first so NONI! said that is discrimination was vociferous as really angry had another plane to catch and was tired and it was unfair besides they replied some Koreans were lost and NONI! only a bit later found out of escape still easy enough to check everybody that was abuse of a plane load of tired passengers.

By the time NONI! arrived in New York exhausted her luggage did not turn up NONI! suspected it may have been held up in a search for drugs at Texas probably because of El Chapo who knows?? This was a good thing as although on wheels it is a large hard shell bag so more to manage. At JFK Airport there were these fantastic shuttle buses you could catch dropped you downtown New York City so used that listening to the African American driver telling us about his city.

American Airlines always zero problems and did return luggage to the hotel next day and gave NONI! free toiletries and undies. Its great just landing middle of the city as was able to actually walk straight off bought some health food walked a few blocks until so dizzy from jet lag barely able to stand a yellow taxi was easy.

In that tunneled town in Mexico is where the hermaphrodite statue is half woman half man in a market place as a manifestation of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Hermes is the ruler of Gemini NONI! star sign mercurial fleet footed and can pass between worlds the living and the dead the above ground and under ground and represents both sides of the human psyche. You can find a picture of her under Holy Gifts.

Interestingly see under black clay skull leaf cutting ants live in Mexico when they live in the forest their enormous appetite for farmed underground fungus in a huge maze of tunnels is limited as kept in check. They tunneled networks are vast they farm fungus that grows on cut leaves it is said their society so complex only man has invented more complexity nature is complex.

The tunnel network in the town that NONI! departed from Mexico 2015 is so maze like there are bus stops with people waiting at them to change buses in the underground tunnels and street signs surreal. The pyramids outside Mexico City have hidden tunnels with liquid mercury in some parts. In Mexico City would have lived like numerous indigenous cities in Mexico  a lot of people working in the Arts. They would have located themselves near the centers of power in order to gain good commissions as well that some would also be providing all townsfolk with necessary art and cultural pieces for fiestas and ceremonies. Market places have a long history in Mexico and there were lengthy trade routes.

Same town glasses went missing one evening before going out drew the turning into a Rembrandt a self portrait then dang there went the glasses whilst following the troubadours. Knew needed paper work for insurance company was nervous about the police station and Spanish was terriblemente so NONI! asked the concierge to accompany her. The police station was new with lots of glass sliding doors and two entrances through which one must pass. The police woman who interviewed NONI! had fantastic English with solid swear words she was plain clothes and younger sought of funky looking guarded by another policeman with a gun. Btw NONI! is never the super tough traveler you know backpacking whatever everywhere super macho all round feminist and NONI! is feminist though extremely individual nothing against those who are really super solo have zero issue being a tourist or business as NONI! is an artist by trade barely able to practice in her own nation her voice banned as they blacklisted her and she is exhausted from these solo sojourns so there you go NONI! can be shy under her mask.

Mexrissey a Mexican band that plays Morrissey who is an all time Holy Kitsch! idol.

NONI! tipped the concierge as she did not know if had to tip the police or how so that seemed way to go either way was happy as they wrote a really long document far more complex than the Surry Hills police who charged her with false assault and felt the need to lock NONI! up for 4 hours whilst doing so was unable to tip them they would have said she was mad\\{{*_*}}//  and locked her up for good never to see daylight again for being a woman. Still have yet to complete all damned paper work for insurance claim then NONI asked the police woman what she thought of other glasses the spare pair she said listen they are UGLY looking at NONI! with them on and said it in such a funny way we both laughed a tension breaker the document was long and NONI! was re-enacting you know one of those sillier nights out just with local visitors to town all singing about darn Dolores who is perpetually sad as she lost Jesus in the Niobe Greek mythology story she loses all including her children for boasting how fantastic she was and here was NONI! lacking fashionable glasses guess was unsurprised really lost whilst singing about sorrowful Dolores could smell weed in the street later on. The police woman was younger than NONI! and more efficient than Surry Hills police. Dolores is represented by Picasso as the Weeping Woman.

These are the after glasses

The coppers in Mexico City tote machine guns so you always hope they do not have hair triggers. Most recent time in Mexico City there was a demonstration in the zocalo the main square just a largish group of medical staff the women wear chewing gum white tights look hot. Anyhow round the corner was a phalanx of Mexican police with riot shields which was crazy. Mexican crooks go to Texas to buy their guns as they are illegal in Mexico.

This song a global issue not just Pol Pot and his year zero Dead Kennedy's the other song on the police.

Usually the zocalo ie the square the name is indigenous has demonstrators or parades but the most recent visit instead it had tents covering entire square for a cell phone corporation which seemed greedy and unfair on folks round Mexico City. The previous year there were heaps of teachers camped out protesting a government initiative. There are always parades there or demonstrations Mexicans call it a manifestation if a demonstration which they do very well as they are passionate about change and causes.

Before heading out of Mexico City this time round was in a district and walked past a stall selling the largest sunflowers ever seen they originate in Mexico. The stalks were thicker than bamboo they looked like mops so bought about 6 and as leaving just gave them to front desk staff to say thanks and also because liked the flowers so much pretty hard to carry had to use both arms and cradle them they were so enormous.

When protesting for rights Mexicans use banners and posters and photos of the disappeared. When it is festive they use huge papier mache balloons they dress in costume and mariachi bands play its festive and shared lots of flirting costume plays a large role in Mexican culture on an everyday basis like its not like people are madly conscious of it just a part of daily life a nation so vibrant in the Arts both traditional and contemporary often verging on the surreal.

Mariachi bands don't just play narco songs they play in restaurants and on streets at weddings wherever Mexico is very performative in expression. Holy Kitsch! departed Mexico City for USA same day as election Nieto got in a couple of years back. That year there was a robot convention Mexico City they always get weird conventions there. When the election was on there were huge demonstrations as everyone thought it was crook and the media misleading. On the election Day Holy Kitsch! departed a bombed van was shown front page news the media is really gory though you wonder if that is just to frighten people in order to control them more.

The day before election or on it or both no alcohol is allowed to be served. For the manifestations they are only loosely organised enormous crowds march the streets loudly wanting change feeling their vote does not count they have to block off a lot of streets they are so enormous and the politicians get paranoid.

When Holy Kitsch! was in Mexico City the year Nieto was voted in the Siquerios Polyforum was closed though one person there working who let us in as the only visitors it was actually like being inside an Expressionist painting rather than as sculpture as perfecto as the Sydney Opera House though do like Opera House the Polyforumit is more painterly and the space bends you can feel the dictator or leader at the podium a mind bending experience ghosts and skeletons surround you.

The town with tunnels has the mummies whose skin looked like cloth the fatter somebody was the looser and more folded the skin it was riveting all frozen in time from the lime in the soil including a poor woman who miscarried too early and haemorrhaged to death the stains were still there on her leathery skin she was under nourished.

Had pencil and paper unable to draw so mesmerized and confronted the Mexican people took it in their stride. Walked all the way up to the ridge of the valley from the center of town as trying to lose weight to arrive at the mummies followed the bus route to an extent none were going correcto direction then a labyrinth of steps and alleys yet always felt fine solo people greeting NONI! on way stopped for a drink of water at a small store.

Damn it this is the town where an entire carton of wares is sitting NONI! did not have the money on the day the bank machine would not work and had lost another credit card very absent minded it all happened this town!! This is the same town Diego Rivera was born have visited his house more than once with life sized models of Frida and Diego and a good gallery of his work small. NONI! was once violently ill in this town just before her birthday from memory.

Was unsure whether people were extra nice as was a tourist or maybe just naturally friendly certainly way kinder and nicer than here always feel welcome in Mexico of course kept away from the really bad states or dangerous parts of town same here. Caught the buses back from the mummies and from experience public and long distance buses in Mexico are generally friendly people talk and practice their English help telling you where to disembark.

They video you on the long distance buses right close up to your face as you board then that person disembarks think its in case of hijacking or drug smugglers. The police dogs sniff your luggage at small town airports. One night in the hotel car park it was a small place somebody was drilling in the back seat of their car at 11pm a la el doctores cannot imagine why that time of night so shouted out why the damned racket at that time.

In Mexico City had the app. for buses but did not get around time wise to use it though not rocket science. Muchas gente grammar? now use bicycles particularly the young trendy and educated as the city has a major pollution issue and traffic jams there are free bicycles if you want. There are heaps of parks in Mexico City some just smaller squares though rarely square in shape a really huge main park still jungley the parks mediate the weather a little and they are cooler whereas in the town of tunnels the micro climate is quite hot. Its incredibly easy to get lost as nothing is at right angles rather the parks form nodes with up to 5 or more streets branching off so you go to retrace and instead end up at the next park its super difficult even Mexicans stopped in a car once to ask NONI! directions must have looked like she knew something little did they know she is navigation challenged.

Frida Kahlo could be said to depict herself as a hermaphrodite as she gazed at herself like another myth Narcissus so she depicted herself attractive to herself on one level the myths cover all situations she always painted herself with wit avoiding Vanity and Wrath and never stupid. People forget that when reading ancient texts and have lost the art of describing symbolic writing and story telling so complex hard to say what is fact and what is fiction as the people are now all stars.

Frida Kahlo had thirty operations in her life in her case could be said to be performative same as Michael Jackson changed his face a need to change rôles and or body shape outside of physical necessity its difficult to separate what is mythic and performative.

Kahlo like Izzy on Infamy was a Cancer and they enjoy domesticity and are strong headed emotionally like the tides their ruler the moon. Kahlo was forced to be at home a great deal of the time in a domestic environment and her paintings are really very often about daily issues though strong issues even her own birth.

Had she lived in Dead Mans Gulch the very best she could have hoped for would be to end up on a poster in a bus saying don't dis my ability no offense to those doing the ads. Still really it shows you how backward it is she would have been lucky to even get one lover then he would never have been Trotsky or anybody much really as only the boring here know the others who get publicity mostly and someone like him would probably not bother coming here. All that would have happened is they would have locked her away or left her moldering a wasted life and opportunity for the nation that is how bad it is in Dead Mans Gulch.

The traditional villages always had market places or squares where numerous traded wares from coast to coast to mountains so wares really traveled a great deal. The concept of a market place still exists in most towns in Mexico with nice street stores and a healthily robust out door market place a long tradition.

The indigenous began to sacrifice more and more people to their goddess of death was a major one as their crops became thinner and the micro climates changed they unaware they were causing their own plight. The Spanish arrived bringing disease and rather than sacrifice people at an altar killed willy nilly anyone who was a non believer or they thought of as racially lower than themselves so they were probably worse than the indigenous on that score Goya documented war crimes and others in a series of etchings people are OK in Spain in the present well guess mostly.

The same town with the tunnels is where Diego Rivera was born. Mexico is like an explosion of the Arts huge architectural wonders of art sculptural and muraled fountains and conceptual its overwhelming an enormous journey.

Diego Rivera was a Sagittarius the centaur half horse half archer same star sign as Charles Waterstreet. Sagittarius is a fire sign excellent with air sign XNONI! is a Gemini an air sign though not so great for Frida and Diego as Cancer is water and fire of Aries Diego dampens the water making Frida rather miserable as the star sign Cancer he was her grand mentor though she did have other long term lovers.

They moved the totally gory lying statue of Jesus out of the church next to the zocalo in Mexico City looked for it this time unable to find it unless they moved it to some apse. He looks extremely tortured worst ever in depiction its amazingly graphic people brought their children to kiss the glass coffin around the statue they should have left it there.

They had to dig tunnels as the town is built on a hanging swamp that is a raised swamp in the mountains it looked like it might have been a crater once. Indigenous Mexicans used to grow corn and settle on swamps they filled them in using vegetation and mud whatever as corn is a fleshy protein crop it takes a lot of nutrients so swamps provided that. Trouble is they had to clear forests to do so causing a new micro climate as the moisture is no longer trapped a higher albedo with reflected light and desertification sets in causing panic in the indigenous people so sacrifices were the way to go meanwhile the Spanish were outdoing them as they just killed freely if another race of people or non believers and not so quickly always.

Think the town is named after frogs but the frogs went a long time ago anyhow there is some remnant forest there are maniacally large mosquitoes who bit NONI! sooo badly they looked like bullet holes had to put up with this new ugly effect walking the streets of New York and there the women are super sharp Willem de Kooning American  Woman looking kinda meets Archibald Motley a real mix still sharp anyhow NONI! ragged after intense trip.

The albedo or reflected heat is high as much of the tree cover is gone. Venice in Italy was built on a swamp for protection from marauders think they grew crops as well they found the Arts to be the best trade as they had little else to sell and just a small area to grow food.

NONI! actually designed a park to preserve the habitat of the Green and Golden Bell Frog at Olympic Park an old brick pit it was called Re:Public park. It was another crook competition they knew who was going to win awful. Anyhow the work was so good somebody stole it off the wall at university and people commented that it was probably taken overseas as here they are too stupid.

One time at landscape architecture some students from Singapore asked XNONI! to illustrate and draw and render their architectural plans for international competition entries as they were already qualified architects were adding a landscape architecture degree to their arsenal they would pay her they also wanted some freely drawn work not just architecturally rendered work the catch XNONI! would not get her name on the entries was broke at time turned the offer down madness just goes to show they recognized talent XNONI! did need the money.

The rest of the full page architectural works were in the trunk of an old car that NONI! had to dump as she made a U Turn on Bondi Rd took out the head light of the car and right front bumper bar car was out of registration even in that incident from memory which was a major concern they took photos of NONI! sobbing in middle of road as it was during a break up that was after the leg incident and a few months after NONI!'s mama died RIP. They were unable to recover the money from NONI! there was none. Was moving to just a room in a shared house one of the tenants was a maniacal Canadian who never went out and said nobody shares premises in Canada unless in absolute poverty and the land lady was terrifying.

At that same time a lecturer at university feigned interest then stopped he had a complex life still no reason to treat NONI! like a minimalist shred of nothingness or to pretend it is cruel especially from someone with more power at time and NONI! disempowered was way too good for him he would beg to differ but he also claimed he was an artist this has been an issue all XNONI! life must be readily bullied it appears.

Sean Penn ex husband of Madonna is doing a documentary or story based on El Chapo already mentioned. He is the former husband of Robin Wright Penn an Aries a fire sign she has shopped with Holy Kitsch! and is on Infamy.  Penn is a Leo and he has a great shock of hair they like to be center of attention and often are actors. He is fire as well so the two quite combustible must have been very war like though fun!!

El Chavo del Ocho is a famous comic tragic character in a long running Mexican TV show series defunkt he is a homeless orphan who lives in a rubbish bin a child played by an adult and people all over South America know him and the series he is well loved a clown like figure. El chavo means young guy and El Chavo del Ocho means the young kid of number 8 supposedly the apartment number in which he once lived.

Chapulín means grasshoppper chapulinas are also delicious fried grasshoppers small or large chillis hot sold in markets and restaurants down Mexico way. We do not have to eat meat and potatoes all the time and a diverse diet is a richer more Earth friendly alternative.

XNONI! bought grasshoppers from this woman the photo is quite funny as she looks so totally resigned the women often wear these cute aprons if working retail so bought an embroidered one at an outdoor market from women who spoke Zapotec had to order one as they were not selling them just wearing them what they were selling were typical cheap silver trinkets not even the cute miracle wares that Holy Kitsch! patrons buy just popular with people up for a weekend.

NONI! is fed up with being used by entire Art World Dead Mans Gulch they took up arms against NONI! all were horrid. Well maybe NONI! can just be made into a saint at this rate never really aimed to be a martyr as it is everyone makes a profit from her and a living except herself as the system has developed especially nasty tactics to ensure she comes last.

Chapulínas are featured in a castle in a large park in Mexico City they are made in stained glass and NONI! walked all the way there out of excitement lack of knowledge on buses and wanted to lose weight. The most recent journey departing Mexico same day El Chapo escaped began that journey in Mexico City with a walk to that castle of the grasshoppers.

 The trains look way confusing same as here its a wonder tourists are able to find way round at all in Dead Mans Gulch only locals can figure the platforms out Central Station sort of lost in the underground though spoke to some people who caught the train at midnight from the airport in Mexico City and nobody bothered them it can be pretty laid back contrary to what others say to frighten you out of doing anything at all.

The station was nearby the castle and looked similar to Central Station just the underground section whereas above ground just a plain entrance everybody here tries to scare NONI! with horrible stories it is their fave way to keep her from doing anything in life news media are the worst in society NONI! relies on various news media to track heinous crimes against humanity as it is important to not hide from the Earth we inhabit.

If USA and other nations frees its drug laws people can buy grass dope weed drugs readily or for medicinal purposes if an educated discussion on it and hope the killings will cease. Actually there needs to be improved education on drinking so the minority do not get punch drunk thereby spoiling everyones evening drinking exists so does an educated response if the authorities really cared heavy laws are difficult and this area of discussion a mine field still needs talking about.
