I had such a sweet time at Echo Park Rising and these are just a few pictures of friends with copies of their “All About The Boys…” zine…
Thank you Adolfo lead guitarist of the band Santoros for being so nice and letting me take your picture, while you waited to get inside the bar Little Joy.
Our other cool friend J. Dende was tabling at the Echo Chamber on Saturday and I bought some cool prints from his comic book Brunette. You should check out his Petty Cash Comix and I also gave him a Leon patch…
It was nice bumping into Nicholas guitar player of HOTT MT at The Echo he was so lucky that I was carrying with me copies of Suicidal Goldfish and a Leon patch. He also got copies of “All About The Boys…” and buttons…
I am so happy that my favorite band “Pastilla” got buttons and “All About The Boys…” zine after they played a set at The Echo for Lolipop Records vs. Burger Records at Echo Park Rising on Saturday.
I also bumped into Frankenstein at Lot 1 after the band Bastidas played and he couldn’t wait to cut out his paper boy at the end of the zine.
Members of the band Dead Bedouin Mike the drummer and the bass player Andrew stopped by the Echo Chamber to say “hi” and pick up Lisa’s bass for their set at Lot 1… Thank you guys for the cool picture.
It was so nice to stop by at the Echo Chamber on Saturday to say hi to Jen Venegas the writer of the zine titled “She is Not A Morning Person…” I truly love her purplish color hair…
Bianca one of the creators of the LA Zine Fest was super rad to let me take a picture of her with a copy of “All About The Boys…” zine.
I can’t wait for many of you readers to also get your copies of “All About The Boys…”
It has been a funtastic summer and now I am counting down the days for fall. (I want to wear sweaters and jackets…) This summer has been amazing from discovering new bands to crush on their music. The writers group meetings have been great, because I got the opportunity to meet other writers and artists. We had such great discussions about the writing process and yes friends I did get a chance to work on “The Fakes” and read this work in progress.
The best part of this summer was literally being part of Echo Park Rising and tabling at the Echo Chamber. I was able to collaborate with my best friend and make a new zine titled “All About The Boys…” I wrote it and she illustrated it… It was a lot of fun giving advance copies to our friends and favorite musicians… I truly can say that it has been a “magical summer.”
The Summer Writers Group is meeting this Saturday at Seite Bookstore bring your stories, poems, songs, journal entries… to read and share with us.

Hobbiton is a real place.
RIP Robin Williams, defender of dreams.
This weekend the Summer Writers Group is being hosted by “Nostalgic Books and Comics.” Bring your stories, songs, zines, poems, and journal entries to read to us.
I have to give a big thank you to my cousin for giving me my birthday present two months in advance. I finally saw Arctic Monkeys live last night at Staple Center in Los Angeles. I had so much fun dancing and singing along to their songs I felt like a teenager at my first big concert. When Alex Turner sanged, “Fluorescent Adolescent” I thought tears of joy were going to come down my cheeks. (Now I understand how women felt about “The Beatles” when they had tears in their eyes.) It was a magical evening and yes I genuinely admit that Alex Turner has such a sexy voice.
