I’m working towards starting a DIY distro/press for creative writing and art (you can interpret “art” however way you want) of course, nothing containing any sexist/racist/transphobic/queerphobic content or anything that promotes oppressive behavior.

I went to the Craft & Folk Art Museum on Sunday with my friend. We spent the day looking at the awesome installation by Dario Escobar “Broken Circle.” Then we went to see Stoney Lamar “A Sense of Balance” which was my favorite because he made the wood carvings look like sculptures. I learned a lot from the video documentary they made of him carving and painting the wood.
I went to Viva Pomona! music fest on Saturday with my friend and that’s were I saw this interesting guy that was sitting on the park concrete that was around a tree. He caught my attention since the moment we entered the festival. There was something interesting about him that made him stand out from the rest of the people who were sitting around him. He had these black frame glasses, a grey crewneck sweatshirt (It looked like it had the Seinfeld logo), black jeans, and black tennis shoes. He just sat there by himself while the singer Gusgoose played his set on keyboard in the quad area. My friend and I walked to a poster were the time schedule were posted. That’s when we noticed that Girl Pool was playing at the “Radical Stage” at 7:00 p.m.
My friend and I kept talking about the time schedule and making sure that we didn’t miss the bands we wanted to see. We decide to go inside the Glasshouse were the security guards check our purses before letting us in. We were able to catch a few songs from a band that was already playing and I didn’t get their name. We listened to the end of their set and then we went back outside to the Radical Stage. There was a lot of people gathered by the stage as Girl Pool set up and we stood in the middle. That’s when I noticed that guy once again this time he had a Starbucks drink in his hand. (it appeared he was drinking an ice tea blackberry lemonade.) He passed by me and he stood by himself drinking his tea while he waited for the band to begin their set. I also noticed that he was wearing a yellow wristband I am not sure if he was in a band or helping out in the event.
I lost him in between Girl Pool’s songs while my friend and I danced. Our eyes did not meet, but I saw him once again during The Buttertones set at Thomas Plaza and he stood in front of me next to a trash can. Thank you so much guy with the black frames for making a cameo in my “Boy Diary Moment.”
We are having our next Summer Writers Group meeting at Seite Bookstore on August 3rd. I hope you can join us everyone is welcome to share their journal entries, poems, songs, zines, artwork, short stories..etc.

I truly heart Spotify it always recommends me awesome bands that I know nothing about. When I used to be a teenager I always liked going to the record store buying a cd of my favorite band and then grabbing a cd of an unknown band. That’s why I enjoy listening to the band recommendations and this one is pretty cool I truly adore their sound. I am happy Beverly has a bandcamp so I can share this song with you. This is my band crush sound of the week.
Friends you should listen to the “Buttertones” they are such a rad band. I had a chance to see their set on Saturday at Viva Pomona and it was a lot of fun to dance to their songs. My friend was really lucky to get a chance to interview them such nice guys. Thanks “Buttertones” for letting me take a candid picture of you guys while being interviewed.
