With a blazing soundtrack of Hotel California by French group The Gipsy Kings singing in Spanish with an Andalucían accent, the time traveling continues throughout many cultures and times. As a continuous electric swirling of light masks the scenes behind it, the Los Angelino graffiti and Street Artist can be glimpsed carefully and deliberately applying his personal alphabet with sooty loose ink on a thin brush as well as thick paint on a flat wide brush. In the intervening scenes one sees flashes of still images and video referencing various cultures and continents flashing by in a multilayered collage of influences like a drug induced haze.
