In The Times of a Butterfly

By Zamná Ávila, Assistant Editor

Chinese master paper cutter, Xiyadie (pronounced Zhee-yá-dee), has been exhibiting his work, The Metamorphosis of a Butterfly: A kaleidoscopic vision of life by a gay Chinese artist at Flazh!Alley Art Studio in San Pedro, in conjunction with The Center Long Beach.

Consisting of more than 50 works, Butterfly celebrates the artist’s his family and same-sex life transcending discrimination and social stigma in China. His work will remain on display through July 14.

To the naked eye, Xiyadie simply marries the traditional Chinese art of paper cutting with same-sex erotica. But hidden in the intricate patterns of the cutouts is his story detailing his struggles as a gay, married father of a son with cerebral palsy.

“(My art is about) living and feeling,” Xiyadie said through his interpreter, Alan Quach. “My feeling with my living is different because I have a lot of pain and suffering in my past, so that is why I have stronger feeling to express my art.”

      Than you so much John. I believe you probably know my friends Eddie and Frankie. I visit them every time I go back to Jersey. I hope you enjoy the book, lots of Jersey references and funny things about growing up in the 70′s and 80′s.

      Mooser, you view “the wall came down” correctly.As for your view of Ellis’s irony, I must say that I have not been reading this series too closely. If I’ve misread Mr. Ellis, I apologize. (and perhaps if you are right, my reaction demonstrates his point. Or something.)

      Mamet once wrote that every character he writes has an agenda when they speak. Even down to HOW they say “Hello.” Of course, this works in theatre very well, but not so much in comix [and literature]. Still, if you’re having trouble writing dialogue, then perhaps the dialogue should be motivated by agenda. Once you’ve nailed that, then you can go in and add ticks and throw away lines for atmosphere. Assign each of your characters to folks you know and you’ll see how easy [and fun] the process can be.

      Ouch. I can’t imagine. And yet. I can. I used to cut. Then not for years. I had an episode (actually 3) of cutting last spring. I look at the scars every day and feel…so many things. Thank you for talking about SED and cutting and well, lots of things. It’s comforting in a weird sort of way.

      Lisa – Maybe! I thought rhubarb season was more or less the same as strawberry, and this also was about a month or so ago (my posts are almost always backed up). Either way, I agree – the peaches were perfect! xxSAS

      Tive uns amassos com meu namorado, ele estava de cueca e eu de calcinha. Não sei se ele ejaculou. Minha menstruação veio depois disso, porém em menor fluxo e durou apenas 3 dias e quase não senti cólicas depois disso fiz 2 testes de gravidez de farmácia que deram negativos. Resolvi esperar vir a próxima menstruação que já está 15 dias atrasadas. Eu posso estar grávida por conta desse amasso com roupas intimas ?
