What a fun night of amazing rock ‘n roll stories at Tom Bergin’s! Thanks so much to everyone who came! Alex, Carla, Jonathan, Elizabeth, Carla, and Hudley, your stories were so heartfelt and generous- even the funny ones! Joel Lipton, thanks for taking control of making us look good and documenting all the performances.  I felt like were all in some magic clubhouse! Oh, and a special thanks to Claire Partin for the great impromptu tale!

Praying Mantis is an anthropomorphism often found in all my art.

Punk Diversity

Now in dinosaur ranks as history or something for the researcher.

I decided to let go and accept this inclusion. Delighted to help someone understand the profound world of the punk rocker, who was once ridiculed and ignored. Life is funny. And Flipside Fanzine was there to document a punk scene. Loud music grr grr and growl growl……

Flipside # 3 ~ Al, Larry Lash, X-8, Pooch

I granted a license to Adam Matthew to use Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine (s) to be used in teaching and research.

“Los Angeles Flipside Fanzinie would be a great additional to this, and we would love to be able to include it within our resource to directly explore the history of the Los Angeles Punk.”

Tito Larriva Los Plugs / Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine #54 Ten Year Anniversary issue. (replica) Paperback.

I am thrilled to have negotiated with Jim Hunsaker, Manager, Product Placement, Universal Pictures Feature Production. So much integrity and creativity and concern for original source which is my pet peeve.

I saw this image yesterday on Ragin Records by way of Instagram. I thought of the years of dreaming, the process of doing and the effort of getting it printed. Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine # 54 Ten Year Anniversary Issue (replica). It was a long process. To have this issue in paperback format was a goal of mine since the original printing. From cd to computer, and from computer to formatting and using many programs to get it as good as I could. To find a publisher who would give me what I wanted. A free source where I also could make a bit of money. I started my own publishing company, The Seminary of Praying Mantis Publishing, to get it out with intellectual property and/or copyright foresight.

Now to see it hanging on a bookshelf with all my punk friends and beyond is so thrilling. I am turned on. No one else got it there just me. I think of this image without Flipside Fanzine there. No way! I pushed forward and got Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine the recognition it deserves, but most importantly, the original voices of punk rock. On the pages to be seen, read, and heard. 1977 to 1987. Mission complete. Thank you, Ragin Records! You just don’t know how bitchin’ this feels.

“This film pays homage to the American DIY spirit and the diversity of the US musical landscape outside the commercial music industry. While many other music films never make it beyond hero worship, director Nicole Wegner consistently maintains eye level with her twelve interview partners,…”

Approved by Hopalong Cassidy and his horse Topper…

Mr. Boyd’s portrayal of Hopalong—a “good guy” who wore a black hat but was a paragon of virtue — was the longest running characterization in Hollywood history. He rode the range on his horse, Topper, for a quarter of a century in movies and on television.Sep 14, 1972
