MA-CHE-TAY

A few weeks ago I was invited by SA Studios to the premier of Robert Rodriguez's new film, Machete, starring Danny Trejo. I'm a self-proclaimed hermit and I've said numerous times that I don't really go out, but I do make the rare exception for movies. This particular exception had Robert Rodriguez, guns, fighting, gore, and Danny Trejo all in one - how could I say no?
The entire cast (minus a certain hot mess) was there to present the film and Danny Trejo really does seem like the most genuine, sincere guy. He may play the hard-ass, villain roles well, but I hear he's the exact opposite in real life. Just goes to show, you can't judge a book by its cover.

Here he is goofing around with artist David Choe (who is so bizarre, but very nice in real life as well) in a video by SA Studios. The video covers David as he creates an original poster as a tribute to Danny and his new film, Machete.


Incidentally this is my favorite piece of David's that recently showed at the David Lazarides gallery. He has so many complex, chaotic, intricate, hyper-detailed pieces, but I love the simplicity of this one. I bet you you're smiling right now. See?
