Dekorn on Dekalb


Ah, the Midwest. After arriving in O'Hare, I have had a chance to get more of my children of the corn tour. Well, Dekalb is not that rural, but the flatness here is what is always most striking, and there is no question that it makes an impact on the culture. When Almodovar made Volver, he said that La Mancha's flatness makes it an abstract landscape, leading to people being either great artists or insane. I'll be seeing a cousin in Michigan this weekend in semi-hip Detroit suburb Royal Oak. She complains that a one bedroom condo can go for as much as $100,000 these days. Oy, I don't think even Oklahoma is that cheap any more.

Obviously, you know by now that I love most of Pedro's films.

By the way, Miguel Bosé was on Telemundo last night receiving a lifetime achievement award on the Billboard Latino Awards. He looked great and was very witty in his acceptance speech.

Then it was ruined by a performance later on with that nasty annoying bitch Paulina Rubio.

yeah, I don't think you can even get the one bedroom without the condo for 100G in California
