I Need Mas Lechuga ... (listening to Black Tambourine)

Simon … I always wanted to write about this character’s nombre … GINGI LECHUGA … that’s a totally trippy nombre … no creen … GINGI LECHUGA … gente siempre crack up at this nombre … they think I’m full of mentiras … anyways … this nombre has the HOLLYWOOD making of a RAZA RICHIE CUNNINGHAM … and not because of it’s innocent and SMALL BARRIO SOUND … chale … but because there is really a vato named GINGI LECHUGA de sanTana … simon … GINGI LECHUGA de DELHI …

And check this out … the vato has pelo rojo to the max … as a matter of fact it’s poco shocking and a fire canela … a firme color … the vato’s guero to the max … with pinche red freckles en su CARA … poco HOWDY DOODY AND SHATTTT …

Anyways … it gets mas firme … mas RICHIE CUNNINGHAM de DELHI … simon … GINGI was sanTana’s first rockabilly vato … wearing his blue jeans cuffed like a MADRE in 2nd grade … simon … set with his pinche white camisas or plaid shirts … sleeves were rolled up como loco … chingow … we just thought he was a BADD DRESSER … A TOTAL WAB or LOP or WHATEVER … the vato wore actual BLUE SUEDE SHOES … and … I know this sounds too pinche CORNY … and sanTana’s meanest jelly roll pelo … simon … all in the 2nd grade … ondale … he was mas chingon than da JAMES BROWN WABS in polyester …

And this wasn’t the pinche sanTana norm … chale … the sanTana norm was was a single parent chante … a latchkey-nino lifestyle … TACO MEAT CON NOODLES aka SPAGHETTI … “what do you damn kids want … tacos o spaghetti” … “TACO BELL, mom” … “HAYYY TU, TACO BELL” … cords … Van’s … and an Op or Hang Ten or Lightning Bolt camisa with a crease down the center … and a PEE CHEE folder …

Anyways … he also had an hermano … toda roja … everywhere …

They were always fucking modeling their pinche school clothes to their primos or tios …

His familia was a trip … his apa … god bless his sole … an ARMY VETERANO … and the apa’s homies would drive up the LECHUGA drive way in the family 4-puerta light blue LTD … four hombres came out of this carucha … went to the trunk … opened the pinche trunk and out walked a pinche chiva … all fucking tapado and shit from the drive … ondale … two hits to the cabeza … KILLER CHIVA can salsa verde … and BUDWEISER … and TEQUILA para todos …

The next day there were pinche limas everywhere in their yard … their firme outdoor brick tables and love seats capped with bright cobalt blue and amarillo and café tile HECHO EN MEXICO were filled with LA LOCA VIDA … BUDWEISER CANS … limas …limones … pots and pans … and todo was filled with MOSCAS … simon … when you’d walk by the MESA and SILLAS … simon … moscas to the max would swarm para el norte …

And his ama … walking around the casita singing HARPER VALLEY PTA … mujeres, con respecto, can be a damn trippp ...

Tambien … this vato was the first vato I knew who had a BUILT-UP swimming pool … simon … a pool built above the ground out of firme red brick … and that firme HECHO EN MEXICO tile … all left over from their mesas and sillas and their TJ trip to buy their COCHINADAS …

… NOW this vato is a para-rock-a-billy star … touring los estado unidos … espana … ETC … as part of VICKY TAFOYA AND THE BIG BEAT … simon … VICKY tambien is a sanTana homegirl … tambien de DELHI …
