Dear Buck,

What is "sobre"?

As in "the new more sobre philosophy".

"Sobre" is Spanish for "over", or "super".

The new sobre philosophy is that of filosofo oscuro, Federico Garcia y Nicheo, whose concept of the "sobre mujer" or "chiquita grande" is sweeping post-feminist circles amidst the alleyways of Barcelona. Nicheo's style is literary and aphoristic. The most famous saying of La Chiquita Grande is, "Cojones? Cojones? We don't need no stinkin' cojones."

Hasta luego,
