A little bit of history…
What I enjoy doing now… at 60…
I attempt to write daily on my blog The Seminary of Praying Mantis about punk, art, humor, and spirituality. I enjoy giving talks at special events, such as U.C.L.A Curating Resistance Punk as Archival Method or reading at the Literary Lounge by the Los Angeles river. I enjoy speaking in-depth about my life as a punk rocker from my unpublished memoir The Seminary of Praying Mantis, My Punk@lullaby. I sometimes read at events with longtime friend puck legend Keith Morris. I enjoy creating my Bubble Gum Comics series of small-sized nasty, current-event, politically motivated comics. The characters are based on The Flopside Family. I also amuse myself with (DIY) self-publising of my chapbooks of prose and poetry. Along with writing poetry, I enjoy painting watercolor images of the praying mantis as caricatures of many mythological creatures such as the nine muses and three graces, or maybe even Pallas Athene the goddess mantis.

Punk Rock Swap Meets Canoga Park
I was excited to participate in two of these events locally in my backyard. Yet the second one I attended was violent. I had all my art and books damaged or destroyed by a fight that broke out. This was the kind of violence one sees in prison during a group rape. The environment was so filled with drugs and testosterone that I felt violated. I have been to many shows over my life span, supporting the punk rock scene, this was bad. So, the promoter and the owner (organization) of the place showed no interest in any apology. I guess punk rock comradery is dead. This is what shadows my heart for this place. I was ignored. I feel that the history of what happened to me needs to be seen for what it was. The owner knew who violated my art and me. Yet he was not willing to do anything about it. I posted about this at the time it occurred. The bands playing the event did not support me or seemed to care at all. Some punkers I’ve know for 20 plus years too. Very sad story and pathetic. I did a Go Fund Me and received some support and financial help. Yet, the time and love I put into creating something as an offering to the scene I love… is a challenge for me to get over. I thought it was a great time to support and honor each other. I guess not.
