    @dudewithsign 😉. #totaltruth Ps. Live show tonight at 6pm ET. My friend Mireya Ramos @yeyasmiles (of the badass, NYC all-female Mariachi band, @flordetoloache) is having me as her guest on her live Ranchera songs special. Catch it if you can. We’re playing only traditional Rancheras for an hour. She is in New Zeland, moi à Toronto. Get your drink of choice ready. Tradition suggests mezcal or tequila. Hora central de México, 5pm. #peace #bestmealsathome #lotsofmusic #toronto #ontario #canada #dudewithasign #parkdale #leavemealone #socialdistance #sixfeetapart #mexican #rancheras #tequila #mezcal Photo: @thisisclamp

    Day 63. And tonight I got a crazy urge for the excitement of playing on a real stage and with other humans! ☺️. Such good memories from that night that I went crazy creating and curating this special honouring evening for my Day of The Dead: Heroes show, at the majestic @koerner_hall in Toronto. This photo brings delight while thinking of the awesome band and amazing musicians who were part of it, and who I also get to call friends—plus the great special guests of the night. We’ll get back to it. And we will be stronger than ever after this period of rest, introspection, creation and rebirth. #stayhome #thankyouall #toronto #ontario #livemusic #art #dayofthedead #mexico #canada #music #love

    I’ll be sharing with you the full gist about my new and upcoming home show/project: Capsular Quiquantine. And a way for those of you who wish to follow, be part of and support it. Today marks my first full month of staying home, so I’ll also share with you a little debrief on how things have gone here during these first few weeks of being home by myself, keeping active and in a positive spirit, and l’ll have a short list of things to suggest, such as music that has kept shaking, food ideas, live music performances, some of my personal book and film recommendations, etc...(and even some complimentary scolding, if you’re still fucking around outside your house)😉🤓 See you soon and stay tuned.😘🕺. #toronto #parkdale #capsularquiquantine #stayhome #canada #livemusic #singersongwriter #staytuned

    I had to leave home today to get some essential stuff in my neighbourhood. It had been 15 days since the last time I stepped out of my place for essentials. Back then I was pissed off by seeing so many people outside just doing their regular life and business without taking any precautions and distancing. Today, April 5th, with now over 15,000 positive cases in Canada, 1.2 million cases around the world and 64,000 lives lost, I was even more annoyed at seeing the same inaction and the same amount of people just fucking around on Queen St West, and yet not keeping any distance from each other. Two dudes were even coughing openly while waiting in line outside the store. Seriously, what is it that so many people can’t seem to understand about how the chain of contagion works? We all are gonna be stuck in this situation unless we all stop having contact and give zero chances for this to spread. ZERO! Please, please, please! Reduce your time outside for only essential stuff; keep your distance from others if you must go outside, and at least have the human decency to cover your mouth with whatever you can if you’re coughing—but in the first place you should not even be outside if feeling symptomatic. Come on! #toronto #ontario #canada #parkdale

    Found these little old treasures in the back of my pantry 😍. I brought a little bag of cocoa beans from Mexico months ago, and these remains had been hiding in there for a while, and they are just the best match to accompany my afternoon cup of Oaxacan coffee (from Chocosol). It’s like the feeling of finding old money in an old pair of jeans, but way tastier! 🤤 #diginyourpantry #cocoabeans #hearttickles #fisheyekettle #parkdale #sunday #coffee #toronto #mexico #canada #chiapas #oaxaca #homealone

    Home serenading and in the good company of my baby plants, Hermelinda and Nazaria. (Both named after my two long-gone grandmothers) And they know how to practice social distancing, too. 🤓 #abuelas #grandmas #homealone #toronto #home #serenade #parkdale #ontario #canada #quiquantine

    Beets soup today! Trying new recipes is helping me kill some time, and after these times, I hope we will all have learned and added a few new dishes to our home menu👨‍🍳. Thanks to my friend @laurenbailey_lb for the recipe. I still had to improvise on a few things. But the ginger made a great difference. And I almost ate all the beats by chunks while I was chopping them. They are simply so good just boiled and alone 🤓. #droppingbeets #quiquantine #stayhome #beets #betabel #betteraves #toronto #ontario #canada #parkdale #home #casa #homemade

    Gotta admit that, despite the uncertain times and tribulations going around the world, there seems to be an incredible amount of, small or big, actions of love and kindness going around among people everyday. This has been said many times already, but I want to insist on emphasizing and sending a big shout out to all the nurses, doctors and all health professionals around the globe, who are busting their asses while risking their own lives to save ours. A big heartfelt, thanks to all of you!❣️ Another special shout out to my friend and a hero, Danielle Irwin, who is rocking at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Toronto. 👩🏻‍⚕️😷. To the bunch of us staying home, PLEASE, continue to do so. That is the very BEST way we can help our doctors and nurses to continue doing their jobs safely, efficiently and without them being overwhelmed. Thanks to you too for playing your role. Ps. I dumped a bag of potatoes in soapy water on my sink and this one was the very first one my hand fetched to scrub. Call me a hippie, a nut or whatnot, but I am going to fully believe it’s earth and the universe sending out little signs of love and hope. 🌎 🌌 ✨ Hugs to you all from the Escamilla headquarters in Parkdale, (virtual ones only for the moment!). #stayhome #loveamongus #love #world #nurselife #doctor #unsungheroes #toronto #ontario #canada #soup #bruisedheart
