hey everyone. boy what a wild weekend. you can read a little in my personal blog. anyway, saturday was the loteria night, and we made around a hundred dollars! we had a pretty good turnout, great food (my rice was apparently the best mexican rice but i personally thought i could have made it better) and yvette hooked it up with really cool prizes. the best ones were definitely the giant art pad, the free night of childcare provided by yours truly, and the free small tat donated by ceci, our local tattoo artist. (she did noemi’s hermana, resist) so it was a success. yay. i’m that much closer to AMC!!! i am really excited.

ok, more updates later.

check the flyers-good for online posting May 10, 2008

Posted by Noemi M in AMC2008, fundraiser, kids, zinefest, zines.

*the flyers are not printer ink friendly. I’ll be making some more basic in b/w.

Be there or… be not there.

want a table? They’re 10$ each. Want to lead a skill share? Volunteer? Go here for more info. We’re also looking for a few good acoustic sets.

This year’s fest will be located at South Texas College, Weslaco Campus on June 6th from noon to 6PM. (well it is the first year but it’ll be a yearly event).

*UPDATE-date change to the 6th.
AND we’ll have music too, from 8-10PM!!

The cafeteria will be transformed into the mercado for the diy and zine wares and we’ll have 5 rooms for workshops, platicas and skill shares, including outside area for set up for discussions. Poets and musicians will take the stage throughout too.

The DIY & Zine Fest is a child friendly event. You are free to bring your kids along to look/buy the wares of the mercado and sit in at the skill shares and platicas. Workshop presenters are aware that our event is child friendly. Why? Cuz kids need to learn diy and about alternative media!

Organizers are:
Noemi Martinez
Vicki “Hasta la Viktoria”

*This is a fun-raiser to help us get to this year’s AMC! So go and have some fun and donate a few bucks. Maybe y’all want to go with? Vicki posted some cheaper alternatives to flying here.


talking money and time May 7, 2008

two things that really don’t exist. we don’t have enough of either and always need more of both.

i may have to ride on a greyhound bus solita to get to detroit since i don’t have my picture ID. costs less but takes longer. but it costs less!

there’s a Chalupa night/ Vegan-q being planned at Kolectivo Mapache in edinburg on the 24th! more details and good stuff coming soon.

donate your miles May 6, 2008

A friend gave me the idea, that folks can donate unused airline tickets or those frequent flyer miles.

We will fly out of Continental or American Airlines, which have the cheapest flights to Detroit (DTW). From MFE to DTW, via Orbitz I’m seeing the cheapest flights going at $414 round trip, per person. Which is the cheapest I’ve been able to find. That one flies out of AA with one stop in Dallas, then it goes to a NWA flight. I hate it when it goes like that, so much confusion…
I’m looking at leaving on the 19th and returning on the 24th.
Travelocity has the same exact flight cost flighting through AA then through NWA.
The cheapest going through continental.com is $600, yiikes.
At AA, the cheapest is $420. so maybe to avoid changing airlines, I’ll go through AA.
