Fisherman's Blues

I was in need of something nice this morning to just pick up the feeling of loosing hope, to get out of the labyrinth that my mind sometimes becomes.
So what better that Waterboys Celtic Inspiration to rise up again huh?
Great band, great song.…

So enjoy them,

wish I was a fisherman

tumblin’ on the seas
far away from dry land
and it’s bitter memories
castin’ out my sweet line
with abandonment and love
no ceiling bearin’ down on me
save the starry sky above
with light in my head
with you in my arms…
i wish i was the brakeman
on a hurtlin fevered train
crashin head long into the heartland
like a cannon in the rain
with the feelin of the sleepers
and the burnin of the coal
countin the towns flashin by
and a night that’s full of soul
with light in my head
with you in my arms…

And I know I will be loosene

Amazing Reaction

As many would know, I have written about pretty often, I have been dealing with Learning Disabilities all my life. One of my weakest and more frustrating points is writing. Is really had to transfer the wilderness of my mind and ideas into alphabetical symbols. By omitting, tangle and confusing ideas makes a week representation of my thoughts into words. But I keep trying and will dies trying.…

Last week I wrote a really analytic blog as frustration of what I was seeing around me during the 10th Anniversary of Sept. 11 (911 Ironie ) It was like a vomit of my mind in the pursuit of congruence of my reality. For my surprise, I received 555 visits till today, something unexpected. Sadly no comments, so I don’t know what to get out of that. Never the less, my thought transcend 555 people, and

Suggesting a RB Practical Idea

I in the verge to upload a series of designs that goes together under the same theme and I was wondering that it could be a great idea if RedBubble allows us (through the design of the website) to create collection base on themes.

Recently, under the anniversary of 911 I have created 3 Desings (in posters and TShirts) as well as a strong Blog about it. Wouldn’t be nice to group them so the promotion of the products would it be more efficient? in the same way those visiting an specific design, are going to be expose to the rest of the same collection, allowing the future costume to see the entire expression on the matter by the artist.

What do you think?
Can we take this suggestion to the RB Management?
Any other Ideas?

Thank guys.

SERENITY PRAY (For a Friend)

This design I created it to support a great friend in a really hard economical situation. Rent Payments and the possibility of being evicted.
Sadly i can help her with money, beside, it wouldn’t be nice. She needs a more lasting fix. So I create this design for her, and she uploaded into her store at Zazzle. So at least she can get something extra.…

The design represent the Financial struggles millions Americans are going through right now, while banks and wall street plays with our future, and our Congress are more worry about their multi million Re-Election Campaigns and their friends in Corporate America. US, citizen always payed the highest price. That’s why we need join strength and help each other.

If you like the Design, but you can buy it or just don’t want too, please help me pro

NORWAY ATTACK AFTERMATH

The Carnage occurred in Oslo last weekend is another proof of how far ignorance and radicalization could get to a bloodbath of innocent people.
Little by little the Causes of this insane attack is reviling a network of Supremacist and Neo Nazi organizations have been rooted deep into our Society and Politics. Once again the hatred towards Islam have shown how we all are being kidnapped by the intransigence of Radicals in the brotherly believes, Islam, Judaism and Christianism. US, the regular civil population, that the only thing we look is to live in peace, for the sake of our families and our nations are the ones paying the hight cost of this intolerance. The big majority are being target and used on this ongoing conflict and our voices has been muted b the sounds of booms, missiles, gun…

Why other Rights Groups should Support...

Why other Rights Groups should Support an Immigration Reform?

Gay Rights: There is a huge % of Gay Illegal Immigrants.
Women Righs: More thant 1/2 of the 20 million Illegal Immigrants are Women.
Women will be protected for the law in case on Sexual Slavery, Domestic Abuse and Authority Rape.

Child Rights: 1/3 of the 20 million Illegal Immigrants are Children, and being legal, the Law may protect them from Child Abuse-Child Work-Child Sexual Abuse.

I WON'T BE MOVED

SYSTEMATIC SLAVERY (United States)

If you are an #Illegal #Immigrant or you know anyone that is enduring #Domestic #Abuse or #Work Abuse, there is Help, Legal & psychological help.
Any Illegal Immigrant that’s enduring Domestic Abuse it can ask for Asylum base on the fact his/her life is under direct threat.
Many Illegal Immigrants that came as Domestic Workers are kidnapped by the employer, their documents are confiscated and are keep ignorant an isolated from reality.,perpetuating a condition of Slavery.
Also, many young girls came to the US under the promise of work through ads in their hometown newspapers. When arriving to the us, they got the sower reality that their “employers” confiscated heir passport and forced them to work in Prostitution Rings all over the US. That’s another case os Sexual Slavery in the US.…

AN AGGRAVATING TRUTH

During the length of 2 years I was trying to come up with a way to talk about Domestic Abuse in our society through T-Shirts and finally I did it.
The whole Idea was to create a tool of awareness to confront society to it and to encourage people to talk about more openly and find out a solution or remedy of this rampant epidemic, and T-Shirts was the best tool I could think of.…

I have no monetary power to start an organization or too advertise through networks and billboards, but I have my work and my creativity to allow others to get involve and be part of this campaign.

WHY I SUPPORT (WE ALL SHOULD) WOMEN2DRIVE IN SAUDI ARABIA

Bear a Black Ribbon on June 17…

Women’s rights in Saudi Arabia

Saudi women sometimes face discrimination in many aspects of their lives, such as the justice system. Although they make up 70% of those enrolled in universities, for social reasons, women make up 5% of the workforce in Saudi Arabia,12 the lowest proportion in the world. The treatment of women has been referred to as “sex segregation” and “gender apartheid”.
Implementation of a government resolution supporting expanded employment opportunities for women met resistance from within the labor ministry, from the religious police, and from the male citizenry.

In many parts of Saudi Arabia, it is believed that a woman’s place is in the home caring for her husband and family. There is also segregation inside their own homes as some roo

HH Getting Out of Hand

These are fragment of I discussion I had earlier at Facebook Red Bubble Peeps that I think it express really well my thoughts on all this Scandal going on with the Hipsy Hitler. These are independent paragraph one to each other buy place together under the same context. I hope you appreciate them.…

Ok, this HH is being running at RBB for quite a time already. Honestly, I think things are getting out of hand completely. It worries me more the reaction of RBB than a stupid kid making joke Tees of Hitler. Bad taste on the design, absolutely, insensitive, yes. Heretic, I don’t think so.
There is a concept of putting Hitler as the Maximum Evil, so Evil that we can’t make fun of him or the ideologies behind him (an Ideology that is turning really popular in politics around the world including

What Love is all about…….…

I had being reading lots of post with a lot of contradictions base on my own definitions of Love. I had being reading of a lot of Blogs with fights, depressions, loose of hope, selfishness, competition, even attacking or criticizing each other and I don’t get it.
So this time I want to venture in something different that could be interesting. So let me tell you, as man, what I consider love and why some things I read do not mach with that definition. I hope you like it.

Love is the strongest positive force in the universe, it allows you to create, to get together, enjoy live, to die in peace and to realize your self as a perfect Human Being. Love is the force that bring us together as a brother/sisterhood, as whole, as humanity, as one and of course, there are all

REACHING OUT LIBYA

Since the beginning of the Muslim/Arab Revolution, I have dedicate my self to support those looking for changes and fighting tyranny in a Non-Violent way.
But sometimes realities change in dramatically ways that put the civil population in a deep jeopardy and forced them to take actions of self defense and to fight for their unquestionable right to Life and to live in freedom.
Is for this reason the I can’t keep promoting Non-Violence actions when I see injustice and massacre against civilians as we are seeing in Libya, but at the same time, as my believes dictate me, I can’t never promote or support any action of war against one side or the other.
It’s for this reasons I decided to move all my actions and efforts to help the direct victims of the conflict (wounded, women, children, eld…

My Response to The Reactions from Lara Logan's Tragedy

My heart is with Lara Logan right now, because no mater when or where, Women and Children are the ultimate victims of our violence. Wars, Repression, Starvation or any tragedy worldwide. This has nothing to do with CULTURE OF RELIGION, but with VIOLENCE and PREPOTENCE. What happened to Lara Logan is an example of what happened to women in conflict areas around the globe. She has been the spotlight for millions of women.
Rape is a tool of control and intimidation for those in power. During Chile and Argentina Dictatorships , thousand of women were rape and their children sold by the military. During WWII hundreds of women were rape, Russians women by the German Army, German women by the Russian to, the Rape of Naking, etc. The same happened in Vietnam, Iraq II, Palestine, Lebanon, you name…

The news centers from all over the world were rushing news and trying to bring a common idea of what was going on. Many questions, a lot of data, but little information that could help to understand what happened. The whole continent was highjack, and reactions of disbelieve and angriness was building up, fear and panic what’s the prevailing feeling. A lot of fear.

From no where, the government of Sweden was reading extremely hight readings of radioactive levels in the atmosphere, something was not right and they call of alarm rushed all

ISLAMOPHOBIA (UPDATE: 01.25.2011)

[Video]
Is time to Stop Islamophobia…

As the name say it, Islamophobia is the deep fear or aberration for Islam.
Something I found it absolutely devastating for our society evolution and shows the magnitude of how ignorance had been spread all over.

History between west and east had been directed linked to our relationship between 3 main religions and cultures, Christian, Muslim and Hebrew. During the last 2 millennia, these three religions have been struggling one with the other constantly, in a endless cycle of violence, intolerance and bloodshed that today still marking a trend in our society. In recent time Muslims have became the scapegoat (with latinos) of all the Evils in our society and the Media has been working really hard to really believe it’s true, to the point of spreading a f

RADICAL

A big amount of my work is trying to expand Tolerance between different groups and ideologies, there is a movement then we can’t act tolerant to it, and that’s Fascism.
Right know we are running in a path that’s taking us into a Fascist Government, where the State lose any power of mediation and it’s responsibilities are taking care by private hands ( Corporations). Fascism is a way of government were the private conglomeration’s interests uses any means at hand to go over the needs and wills of the general people. Debate, liberties, freedom of thinking and our integrity as human beings are been jeopardize by the blind thirst of power and profits.
Wars are made for profits, social issues unresolved for profits, the Penitentiary System is being given to private hands for profit, laws are m…

RED BUBBLE QUESTION

Hello everyone,
I’m pretty much new in this network and the little I have been doing in here really exited me. The reaction of everybody is outstanding and the system of networking, commenting in others’ jobs, linking with people from different art tendencies is awesome.
I just wondering, all this networking and constant exposition of our art and writing does give any sales at all?
I know it takes sometime to bring more and more people into you own portfolio, and call others attention, but Does all this effort will transform into sales ???

I would like to know a bit more about that, about how can I do to improve sales and come out with “THE” idea that will spark a more continues sales in my behave.

Thank you all, this Red Bubble experience is really exiting.

LETS END ALL RACIST ARGUMENTS.

I have been hear many arguments that pretend to expand and justify the existence of Racism, the idea that other race is superior to other, and those “lower ones” need to be under control of the “superior one”.
After more than 100 years os Human Science, we had found out a single source for all humanity. A first Adam and Eve, Our Universal Ancestor living in Africa.
Africa had turned into our mother land. No matter in what time or way we as humans had migrated out and expanded ourselves trough the rest of globe. Little by little we had grown apart for each other and because of this we end up believing we are no equal to the other, We were so wrong. Millennia empires had subjugate other civilizations, using slavery and race as a tool of control and domination. From the Egyptians to the Greeks…

BE TOLERANT (BT)

Many times I question my self how we end up being a Nation with so much confrontations between groups of opposite ideas and believes and How we waste so much time trying to make the opposition to change their intolerant position to ours. By going back into our history books, I realize that we didn’t just reach a point of intolerance, but we have been always like that. Our history talks of constant cycles of intolerant confrontation, reaching momentum at major crisis, making us change, at least for a little while. In todays society and politics, many things are being mix, inevitable, after so many years of alienation between one group to another, that is making really difficult to those in the middle to get a moderated position where everyone can agree till certain degree. Social issues…

TOLERANCE (is not dead yet) UPDATE 01.08.11

Since the end of the 90s society around the world have been growing a sentiment of Intolerance with each other.
In this country, since 9.11 we stopped thinking and using our common sense, we started fearing everyone that is different to us, mistrusting entire communities and isolating ourself more and more from those around us, from those with different ideas. Society radicalized itself.…

You can feel it everywhere at all levels, from the religious schools, to the political parties. Muslims, Jews, Christians ( and between religious schools), Democrats and Republicans ( inside the same parties, groups have been radicalized). If English or Spanish, Gay or Straight, Black or White ( no room for browns). Rich and poor, Male and Female. We are growing intolerant to each other.

This should stop.

ReEditing Huckleberry Finn

In responce to http://tl.gd/7u5snf @PaoMiamiFL
Re Editing books like Huckleberry Finn or Uncle Tom’s Cabin, we are re writing History. Without that word NEGRO (Nigger), Slavery will look like a Joke to the next generations. The tragedy lived by millions of human beings slaved for so long, removed from their homelands and sold and treated here as livestock will loose all its pain. It will be sanitized.
Years of Apartheid in the US will loose importance, Martin Luther King Jr, will have no more meaning. The word Negro resume the suffering of more that 300 years imposed to the African Americans, by the same people that tried to anhilite our Native Americans.…

IN OUR HUMAN CONDITION

NOTE: PERSONAL OPINION…

GAYS, LESBIANS, TRANSVESTITES, BISEXUALS, TRANSEXUALS ARE NORMAL PEOPLE, PART OF HUMANITY, AND SOCIETY. PLEASE LETS NOT MAKE THEM A SPECIAL OR A FREAK BREAD BECAUSE SOMEONE WANTS TO DESCRIMINATE THEM IN THE MILITARY. IF WE COULD SEE ALL SEXUAL ORIENTATIONS AS SOMETHING NORMAL IN SOCIETY AND IN OUR HUMAN CONDITION, WE WOULDN’T NEED ANY MEDIA CAMPAIGN LIKE THE NOH8 OR THE DADT (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell).

WAKE UP PEOPLE, STOP THIS MEDIATIC CIRCUS AND LETS ACEPT EVERYBODY AS EQUAL, AS HUMANS. WE ALL ARE HUMANS, NO BETTER OR WORSE THAN OTHERS. ACEPT OTHERS AND LETS MOVE ON. THERE ARE MAJOR ISSUE TO BE FIX IN THIS NATION. MASS POVERTY, MASS UNEMPLOYMENT, MASS DESTRUCTION IN OUR WARS.

CHANGING THE WORLD, ONE PERSON AT THE TIME

I think that we all have the capacity to make the world a better place to live in.…

A place in which we, our families, friends, our kids and their kids can understand the importance of love, tolerance, humanity, dreams and faith – all traits that make Humanity beautiful and a thrill to be a part of – At the same time, we should try to work with each other to eradicate (within ourselves and in the hearts of others) the greed which drives humans to destroy themselves by destroying others. I think that no one should have to feel unloved and isolated, and it is within each one of us to make sure that feeling of loneliness and emptiness becomes non-existant. Learning to see the beauty within us teaches us that once we learn to see our inner beauty we will be able to see the beauty in others.
