The Who ... (listening to Fifth Dimension)

Hey ... check this out ... there's another book on "the others" ... simon ... ever feel like writing as a person you're not ... simon ... ever want to write as a Japanese sumu ... an owner of a '77 Monte Carlo ... or how about one returning from a KKK rally ... pues ... now it may be possible ... simon ... there's a new book for writers that tackles the tricky issue of writing characters of other racial backgrounds, sex, or sexual orientation ... simon ... I always wanted to take the perspective of Charo ... coochi, coochi ...

Writing The Other: Bridging Cultural Differences for Successful Fiction ... the book is titled ... with workshops available ... RIGHT!! ... that'll do it ... an Ivy League Princeton dude can now be a junkie prostitute ... a Southwest UC Chicano can now be Barry Manilow ... hmmmm ... and the tensed James Woods can now play sanTana mayor Miguel Pulido for ABC ... this is too trippy ... I'm pinche shocked considering both authors are mujeres and one is an Afro-Americana ... chingow ... for decades or centuries ... you choose ... we've been schooled to "write" and "learn" and even "act" European ... and for decent reason ... tu sabes ... mainstream ... integrate ... NORMAL ... ASSIMILATE ... eses US math methods are too pinche lengthy ... there are short cuts ... and while there's been some suces ... pela "the other" c and s ... there's been una chinga de tensions and shittttt ... low academic performance ... high drop out rates ... racial tension por los ninos ... workplace issues ... as a result of many things including an antiquated social structure butt most likely from forcing nosostros to act like not nosotros ... Gracias but I've got a pinche tamal in the microwave ... quieres uno ...

If the graciousness of laws and regs can't make us AS ONE ... this book might ... assuming we're all pinche anonymous bloggers ... good idea ... but if Hollywood or "writers" need a pinche wetback voz ... there's plenty to shoes from ... if I need pink fruit ... that's out there too ... so let's retitle that libro ... Writing the Others, Just Don't Hire Them ...

The link is from Boing Boing ...

And don't dress like the others ... according to the San Bernardino County Board of Sups ... a new dress code policy outlaws Levi jeans ... tattoos ... sweat pants ... facial jewelery ... come-fuck-me high heels ... and I imagine brown skin and any name ending in Z ... oops, sorry the last two are somewhere in those paperless policies ... ESES ... INFORMALITY RIFA!! ...

BUTT it's not the devil's fault ... chale ... it's GOD ... dice Gregory Rodriguez ...

AND that pic ... THAT'S A CLASSIC ... WELCOME TO NARANJAVILLE, STAY UN POCO ....
