How to Be Productive + Weekend Material

December 3, 2010

I actually have no idea of how to be productive on the weekends. I just wrote that cuz I wanted to grab your attention and I think search engines dig those titles – AKA I’m whoring myself for blog traffic. I love google, I love bots from search engines, I am part of the Oprah book club, I carry Justin Bieber’s baby inside of me {see, totally working my magic here}.

But, what I do have is a bunch of awesome weekend links for you. This stuff is gonna get you cleaned, inspired, excited and happy. From crafty projects to faithful vintage love – it’s all right here. While you check’em out I’ll be browsing for natural remedies to cure hangovers {let’s just say I attended a party that had FREE booze…’nuff said}

Check check check it out:


Get Loving  – Dear Faithful – Lut Boutique


Get Booked – Jonathan Callan – Via Mint


Get clean – Olive Life – Via Cargoh


Get Creative – Art House Co-op Projects


Get Crafty – Photojojo Xmas Project

Get Crackin!


Brain Issues

November 17, 2010

Don’t worry I am not about to perform a lobotomy online. Although, I could use one of those right now. That and a vacuum cleaner that had an attachment that I could plug into my head and suck the 100000 thoughts I am processing at the moment. I think I might just create a post later to deal with this emotional diarrhea {not even ginger ale and toast can stop it}. Consider yourself warned.

On a more – insightful and less self-absorbing note – I found this neet-o piece of art by Chris Brett. Who – as stated by his Twitter – is into “Art, dogs and creative people” . I like that mix. Except I’ll swap the dog for a llama.

This is his 3D illustration of a crazy TV-like creature. The illustration even comes with 3D glasses yo!

Get ready to indulge in some funky old school special effects {by the way it’s on sale @ Cargoh, so load it on your Xmas shopping cart}

July 6, 2010

There are a few times when I feel as hyper as I feel right now. It’s usually triggered by something or someone that made me have a massive grin from ear to ear.

It usually happens at Christmas or when it snows and you cannot get to work. In this case, it’s thanks to my brand new post (yeah, I am bragging, big time!!! ) at Cargoh . It looks so pretty!!! It’s like my 1st baby. Now I am totally addicted and I want more of this. FEED ME BABIES!

I got so excited about it that my hair went into an instant mexi-crazy head, Whoopi style . So once again, in case you didn’t see the link, here… eat it, enjoy it, rub it, pounce it, grab it and do it again.

I’m off to watch Sister Act and eat tacos to celebrate.

PS to make this post even sexier, listen to this guy, David Vertesi, his voice is like an air born juggernaut. Drool…

k, this just in…

My 1st official Cargoh post is cooooooming (and yes I am yelling the cooooming part with an Oprah ah-ha moment type of scream)




Mission Accomplished

June 25, 2010

Don’t worry this post won’t self destroy in 10 seconds, and no, Tom Cruise will not come and rescue you before your crappy laptop blows up. Even if you were in danger, he is probably super busy skyping and counseling some confused gay alien that’s trying to leave the mother ship to come down and party-hardy for Pride week.

Actually this lil´post is about tonite’s amazing experience. I went to the SALON night for The Cheaper Show #9 . To be honest I was very, very nervous but at the same time, massively excited.

I got to meet some funky-sexy-artsy-smartsy artists from all walks of life. I thought these artists would be nerdy uptight asses, the type of artists that , when you ask them something about their art they would be all like ” you don’t ask questions about my art, you just stare at it and let it be…fuck…..”  or the typical ” There is no explanation for what I do, I just do it when it needs to be, because when I do it…. it’s been done and has been, and I did it, cuz I’m real,  you get it? ”  uh…..well….uh….

But this WAS NOT the case AT ALL. Artists were SO friendly! They even wore pins that said “I’m an artist” , how cool! is not an everyday thing that you get to mingle with them. This was a super rewarding experience AND it really proofs that, nowadays everybody can have access to art. There are so many resources that are inexpensive and that showcase great talented people from all over the place -whether it be social media, blogs, websites, market places or an open house – you can have access to all of it, supporting up and coming young talent.

Anyways, I’m pooped, I walked like 1000km today. So as proof of a successful night I give you this:

My green rug, full of business cards that I got from people at the show, a bag of pizza and of course, my own personal Cargoh planner. Thank you Cargoh! if you were a mechanical bull, I would ride you everyday!!!


PS By the way my blog is called Gbox, not Gspot, (you know who, you dirty bastard)
