Another jam-packed Saturday night in the big D.F. Party at Malva with Domestic Fine Arts, which I missed. And Steve Aoki, Mark "The Cobra Snake" Hunter and Cory Kennedy were in town to host a party at Pasagüero. Here are Mark's shots documenting it all. At Salon Caribe in San Cosme on the same night, I watched Berlin-based Stereo Total destroy the house with that irresistable electro-pop. (Once again, the Mexico City audience was hyped and committed!) On Sunday Mark and Steve took off early, and Cory and I went with the guys of Te Amo and Denise Marchebout to Lagunilla, the antiques market north of the Centro. Looked at things but mostly we ate from the sidewalk vendors: fresh-squeezed orange juice, pico de gallo, and a big caguama beer in a Styrofoam cup.
The words "Cory Kennedy" are by far the most Googled way people find this site. Literally, daily, dozens of strangers stumble upon Intersections in their insatiable search for images or chatter about the now-18-year-old L.A. "Internet It Girl," all coming to a regular old People & Ideas
post (which she told me she had never seen) that I did more than a year ago. The sustained buzz over everything
Cory wears and does is so maddening to some people that they feel
compelled to spend a significant amount of energy debating her
significance on her Uber blog. Lately, she says, she stays home a lot.
