Adult Spanish Content

Buildings of iron and stone in a city of homeless. Broadway cuts right through the bullshit of downtown Los Angeles. It’s a nod to New York’s Broadway, but the closed up theaters with their marquee’s advertising a shoe sale happening in what was once a magnificent Art Deco lobby with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall’s mugs plastered in recessed brass frames, wild patterns of carpet leading to the heavy swinging doors of the silver screen projection room that is now warehousing chinese footwear knock-offs being sold by spanish speaking business women leaves a pall of a forgotten heritage too heavy for me as I walk towards the Staples Center, a giant sports coliseum branded after a stationary store.
What the fuck happened to L.A.?

I stop at a magazine sidewalk shop, the kind that exist on the very surface of the concrete, unattached to the main frame of downtown. These little plywood buildings and rolling carts with telescoping arms of A-frame displays hawk flowers, drinks, the news. Somehow allowed to sprout up like a weed and provide strangers with bus maps, water, post cards, a hot dog, they signal to a pedestrian a regular guy. He stands outside and sells things. You can ask him a question.

At this one everything is in Spanish, and I look at what is going on in a pop culture I don’t speak. Then my eye happens upon a stack of comic books. They are priced at a buck twenty five each. Over a hundred laid out, some with cowboy covers, some with police drama shoot-outs. And this pile with sexy women on the cover. I pick one up. spancom.jpg

The asses are drawn by a man holding a pen in fantasy land. Ditto for the tits. But what makes me decide to buy this one are the pictures superimposed on the drawings. Someone in spanish speaking dreamland decided to put real porn on top of the comic book porn. Sometimes the scene doesn’t even line up, like this ass shot. Sometimes the picture looks like it was drawn from the photo.

I’m not trying to titillate any puritans here, but let’s stop and marvel at the crossroad we have stumbled upon. Two totally separate fantasy lands have collided.
