Were you one of those kids that loved to mix things together? I was. Why eat Cap'n Crunch straight up when you can mix in 10 other sugar bomb cereals to create a pre-diabetic nightmare blend? Why listen to an entire album of just one band when you can make a giant mixtape with all your favorites? Maybe that's what I like so much about Lucha VaVOOM, the Mexican wrestling/comedy/burlesque hybrid show that celebrated its 10th anniversary last week at the Mayan. With their signature blend of "sexo y violencia" on full display, with color commentary from world-class comedians, Lucha VaVOOM has spent the past decade giving my childhood self an entertainment mixture beyond compare.

Nobody, anywhere, does Cinco de Mayo like L.A. does. Not in Mexico, where it's really not that big of a deal, nor in New York, where you can't get a good burrito to save your life. No, Cinco de Mayo belongs to us, and while that may seem like something to brag about, it's also a big responsibility.

By all accounts, the highly anticipated show—a somewhat last minute gig tacked on to the living legend's Blunderbuss world tour—was nothing short of extraordinary. If you weren't there, here's a look at what you missed. More»
It's a constant source of amazement to me how my love of booze can completely alter my perception of a given activity. For example, if you were to say to me, "Hey Alex, want to join a giant group of people who dress up like Santa and walk around?", I might suspect that you were trying to trick me into attending a Michele Bachmann campaign rally or something. However, if you were to pitch me the exact same event, but then add, "Oh, and we'll be drinking heavily throughout," I'd already be shopping for a Santa hat. More»

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
