Rodney, Annette & Frankie…

I looked outside at the night while watching the stars and the sparkling lights on the Verdugo Mountains  It was this time that a new world opened to me. We were all listening and we were all connected somehow. 

It was about 3 feet by 4 feet. Beige color and made of a soft wood with round speakers built-in the front of the radio. The base sound  was good and highlighted the sound his soft DJ voice made. His voice was in conflict to the loud music he played. Cutting Edge music.  I was glued to the sound of the music he played. The room was dark and I was alone in my parent’s  second story house.

In my imagination it never occurred to me that I would get to know this music man. A type of pre internet friend. A phone, mail relationship that came to be during the 1980s. Kinda like a Facebook friend now. Not exceptionally close but supportive and reliable and we all randomly came together as a sturdy cable. We were the jumpstart to that starting punk rock engine.  A dependable promotional voltage to what the puck scene was screaming to achieve. Great times…. thank you Rodney !! A lot of action and movement ! A lot of love !!!

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.
