    Default El dia de los muertos

    Día de los muertos

    By Ableardo B. Delgado

    Renacen los huertos,
    también los muertos.
    El día de los muertos
    por siete minutos
    podemos platicar
    con los seres queridos fallecidos
    I remember
    tagging along
    chasing my abuela
    to el camposanto
    to sell paper flowers
    to make the somber tombs bright
    That was back in Mexico
    I was only seven years old.
    Here in the U.S.
    los muertos
    are persona non gratas.
    Here we do not wish
    to hold dialogue
    with los muertos
    They remind us
    we too
    will eventually join them.
    Here there is no luto
    and there are no novenas
    or puños de tierra
    Here in the U.S.

    the idea is to hide,
    to ignore the dead
    and to even avoid death
    in our conversations.
    in Mexico la muerte
    is well known.
    She’s la talaca, a feminine figure.
    Our Puerto Rican
    brothers and sisters
    Call her “la flaca.”
    Talking with the dead is necessary
    to remind ourselves
    to enjoy our lives
    and not to go about
    as if we already died
    and no one said good-bye or cried.

    My girlfriend's family makes a bunch of calaveras every year. They turn out pretty sweet. (pun fully intended)

    Tucson's 'All Souls Procession" is the best muertos celebration I've been to in the states!

    Has the time come yet for you to be put safely away in a time capsule? THAT would be worth celebrating since you're so on top of timelines and shit!
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    No, City of Angels takes place during Dia De Los Muertos in Los Angeles. It even has Deftones performing during a giant Day Of The Day celebration. That pic is the film's version of the River Styx wherein iggy Pop is sent down to meet the ferryman

    There's so MUCH of it too. My wife used to manage a call center and she has a tile with a skeleton on the phone and "Please Hold" written in bones.

    This How I remember first experiencing Dia de los Muertos. My parents are from Morelia in the state of Michoacan not too far away from where the original Dia de los muertos celebration started.

    The LA cemeteries still have some pretty authentic moments.

    All Souls Procession(Tucson's version of Day of the Dead) was last night. It's an amazing event. There was about 30,000 people marching and dancing downtown. Calexico played after.

    It really is. I didn't get any pics, but my friend Andrea did acrobatics on top of a crane at the end. It's a pretty emotional event. People carrying around pictures/mementos of lost loved ones and what not.
