hola. compadres of foo...




I suggest July 4th. That way we can celebrate two glorious revolutions on the SAME DAY!










VIVE EL CHE.. You live on in our hearts Ernesto Guevara de la Serna. And our hearts live forever in your revolucion!

In America, never. Now in Cuba, the Congo or Bolivia, that day may come.

Why? Please expound on Senor Guevara's need for a holiday in the U.S.

And don't you think he'd laugh at your avatar and the way one image of him has been sold out around the world?



Oh... and In Before The Move To P&R.

Yeah.. for real. That's because America is a fascist consumer-driven enterprise. Get with the revolution guys!

Wait until Casto dies....they he and Castro can be celebrated together. That would be a closer fit.

(Also in before the move)

It's called "spreading the revolucion" -hello?? You can't sell-out an idea man. You can sellout t-shirts with ideas printed on them.. -but you can't package and sell the man, no of course not.

No, I 'distribute' the shirts. The money that changes hands all goes directly to the Che foundation. We support the overthrow of the American corporate controlled enterprise. Actually we share many of the same views with current presidential contenders - such as Ron Paul, except unlike him and others -- we are not explicitly rascist in our views or beliefs. We believe in equality for all! Absolutely.

The revolution will be televised. $19.95 per day on Pay-per-View, so that the consumer-driven fascists can subsidize fuel for tanks to roll over the revolutionaries. You can try and fight it, but 'distributing' all the t-shirts in the world won't stop it from happening.

Yeah, I think I remember that? But maybe not so much. I look it up. I didn't know that there an actual Stadium named after him though? I'm kinda surprised they'd allow that? Is it named after THE El Che?

America DOES have some things worth keeping, we understand and recognise this.. We support the pure revolution that floods the souls of the proletariat. We will drown the american corporate overlords with a unstoppable tsunami of committed hearts and minds - one that keeps the good and throws out the bad. Absolutely.

Comedy is lost on revolucionarios, I guess.

For the record, here are The Rutles at Che Stadium in 1965.

El Che! gets a bum rap these days especially by the media and with Pop culture only exposing people to one dimensioned mtv fodder clones it's to be expected.

His image is synonymous with revolution now and his image generates royalties which the photographer donates to poor children in Cuba.

One day more people will be exposed to a more accurate depiction of Che unfortunately it will probably get worse before it gets any better.

In the words of Che.... "Hasta la victoria siempre"
