Artist James Curran explains the method behind his madness in creating LAGifAThon:
In July I spent a month in Los Angeles where I animated a new GIF every day for 30 days inspired by something that happened during my stay.
See all the looping GIFs on Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram with #LAGifathon or follow me to keep up with the next Gifathon, coming soon…
Very late Wednesday night, I created a Twitter hashtag — #MakeMoviesMexican — and asked the Tuiteros if they had suggestions.
Huh? What do you mean? Like this:
#MAKEMOVIESMEXICAN. Gone With the Migra. White Men Can’t Cumbia. Get the idea?
(It turns out I wasn’t the first with this idea. Superstar pocho comic Felipe Esparza tried this concept in February.)
Here are the Pocho Ocho NEW Top Tweets we got in return (racist, ignorant Tweets not included — the entire thread is below.):
8. Mex In The City
7. Dude, Juarez My Car?
6. Finding Chapo
