I haven’t been but it’s my dream to eat at Hermanas Arce! Maybe I can live vicariously through you? https://instagram.com/hermanasarce?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

When in Madrid you should go to eat at Juana la Loca Pintxos Bar or Toga. I also have endless favourite coffee shops. And don't forget to walk around Rastro and have a beer at Sala equis. I'm born and based in Barcelona btw :)

Thank you Elma, I've added these to my list! I would love your coffee shops recommendations as well! Also, I was planning on staying in Centro, is that a good spot for our first visit? Barcelona is the best, I'm loving it here. We should grab a drink some time!

Bobby - I have been reading you FOREVER or so it seems: The Kitsune Noir days which weren't always flawless for you (or so I remember) - pleased that you shared your likes and dislikes of the design (etc) worlds. I have to say about THOSE SHOES! JUST what we need: cloth shoes with a top pocket containing scissors! hahahaha. The Marra Marra house is stunning and the architect soothes my anger at calling it a "shack"(!!) with his humble and lovely words. PLEASE though, rich white architects - don't do this; don't demean folks who actually live in shacks. sigh. Finally - Your AI opening illustration! WOW! Look Ma no hands! Formless claw yes, hands no - and THAT EAR! thanx for it all.

Funny enough, I still have an email from you from 2013... it's incredible how time flies! I have to say, I love these weirdo AI drawings and how odd the details are. There's something so charming, like how polaroid photos are charming for their imperfections. Thanks for following along all these years, so awesome that you're still reading!

Sorry to be that guy, but don’t we knock things out of the park rather than the part? Otherwise, great content as always. Couldn’t agree more about how shite that NYC stuff is.
