Guy Ritchie Quote

This is a quote from Guy Ritchie from the Joe Rogan Podcast talking about the essence of storytelling.

“You can’t escape yourself, so return to yourself, and accept who you are.” -GR

“You have to leave yourself to understand the value of yourself. you have to loose stuff before you realize all the stuff that you are loosing its ephemeral & transitory it’s not yours, you are enough your are always enough but you’ve got to somehow prostitute yourself before you realize your own value that is the essence of all stories.” – Guy Ritchie

Journalism Class Introduction

Greeting from a place with hundreds of beaches …  UBATUBA Brasil

I was born in raised in El Paso TX USA and my nomad lifestyle has brought me to South America.

Living the nomad style has opened up the world for me and writing has become my frien.

For work currently, I’m a language interpreter Spanish to English.

I want to be able to share with others the beautiful scenery, songs and stories you see and hear when you are traveling in foreign land.

I want to take journalism class because it will give structure to my ideas. Furthermore, with focus and hard work I can turn it into a career.

On my free time I like to draw, paint, hike, bicycle rides, sports and party once in while with a churrasco/BBQ with my wife and friends.

Free Speech Comments

Think about what you know already about free speech within the context of journalism. Please go to the Forum below and post your thoughts on these questions:

What is the relationship between free speech and fair speech?

Free speech in relationship to fair speech are both presenting an idea, a message and one of them is showing different sides of the story and letting the public decide for themselves. Free speech and fair speech are related because both are expressing and sharing ideas. Free speech has few boundaries and fair speech has more parameters, facts and reason to back it up.

What are the “Do’s and Don’ts” that a journalist should be aware of when considering the free speech issue?

Do and don’ts I would say in journalism is to lie and make a story up without checking out any of the sources. Saying whatever to get a reaction.  Do’s is to remain unbiased not matter the story to say the truth even its not convenient for your side.  

What is the difference between free speech and hate speech?

Free speech in general I want to say its constructive but hate speech is to bring the destruction of something. Hate speech there are few facts and reasons its more filled with strong emotions. Hate speech it’s used to attack a subject.

José Guadalupe Posada

Art and culture from Google is awesome and yesterday I found that it was Jose Guadalupe Posada birthday. I wanted to share some his art because he is latino specifically from Mexico. Cultural-broker where we interpret it art, language and society. Im very happy to find latino artist because it continues to give me references.

José Guadalupe Posada Aguilar was a Mexican political lithographer who used relief printing to produce popular illustrations. His work has influenced numerous Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras, and bones to convey political and cultural critiques.

Among his most enduring works is La Calavera Catrina.

Graffiti Ubatuba Nature Murals

Ubatuba graffiti nature murals

Since I been living in Brasil one of thing that has stood out to my creative bone is the graffiti and murals thorough the country specially Sao Paulo. Now that I’m residing in Ubatuba a coastal city in Sao Paulo I continue to see murals and graffiti but now they have a twist.

I hope you all enjoy these photographs from a new shopping gallery in the center of Ubatuba beach.

Two of my hobbies murals and nature combine.

Graffiti and murals are culture bridges to art, media, society of the local region.

Drawing and painting is a hobby that I knew I liked but not until I got to Sao Paulo did I start taking seriously. I used to doodle when taking notes in classes, meetings and at work it help me control my energy.

It has become a habit now, I find myself drawing or painting something every day.

I will post more of my drawings and paintings in a portfolio type page.  

This a hobby that I found later on in my 30s. blog has many posts on murals and graffiti from Brazil.

Graffiti and murals belong in this cultural blog because are visual representation of the local culture.

You will find many photographs of murals and graffiti in this blog because it represents art, media and society in a wall.  

I hope one day I’m able to paint an awesome mural like one of these.

You might think that painting a mural and graffiti it has nothing to do with language interpreting.

I would argue that language interpreting is like painting murals.

Let me explain in both action you are interpreting a message in one you are using oral representation by language and words in the other you are using paint and color.  

Before you can interpret into another language, before you can paint you have to visualize the message, the idea.
