Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs,Records And People In DTLA.

When I Spin Records At The Ghettoblaster In Downtown Los Angeles I Like To Walk Outside The Bar 107 & Take In The City Just Outside The Key Hole Shaped Door Way.

Shooting The Shit Over Cigarettes Or Talking Bicycles..I Once Came Out And Some Dude Was Getting His Hair "Sculpted" By A Roving Hair Stylist.

But What Is L.A. Without The Street Vendor Slangin Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs Right Outside Of You Favorite Watering Hole.

Is Shy Girl Still With Puppet

A Couple Crates of Long Negleted Records were donated the other day.

These records...came in very bad condition...out of their proper sleeves..some dusty and cracked.
I smoked cigarettes while I handled them..and everytime I handle old negleted records like these I just picture all the years these records once entertained someone.

The scribble of a teen girl "La Shy Girl Con El Puppet"

The classic darkening of a tooth..from a singers headshot...maybe even a mustache penciled in.

These records once defined someone's life...made them happy...made them long for love..made them wake up in the morning and get their hustle on...maybe even made someone tie one on..in a bad way.

These records were neglected..now being cleaned up..by me....who wants to bring them back to life..if the grooves permit.

Putting out my cigarette...Lookin'at my dirty,dusty fingertips...I Wonder
..If Shy Girl is still with Puppet?

BOMBILLA (Friday 21st,2011) Orgins Of Bombilla!

BOMBILLA came about one rainy night in DTLA.On our break from spinning records Eazy Uno and I got to talking about records and how as youths we remembered the family sitting around the recordplayer listening to the records our fathers would play and how we were not to touch our fathers records.Years later we would end up with those records in our collection as we started to get deeper into DJing.

Those records (My Fathers Records)are worth more to me than any other in my collection.Some have his name written on the covers which makes 'em even extra special..they take me back to when I was a kid.When I play those records I feel my father is right there with me..telling me to spin this song and then that song.

So with Eazy Uno,Orion Escobar and Slops Rox...BOMBILLA will come to life.!Dope Records and Good Times!!!

BOMBILLA is a an homage to Family,Friends and Those Great Vinyl Records!!.Come Enjoy The Records and Dance and Enjoy Life.!

A Box of Old Dusty Cassette Tapes

I believe everybody has a box of old cassette tapes sittin' around somewhere...they're almost like photos...when you have 'em in your hand...they take you back to better times...or maybe even bad times...none the less they were your bestfriend...especially that "mixtape" someone gave you.I remember splicing the tape back together when they would get tangled up in the mechanism & you had to rip the tape outta the deck...then there were those one tapes that sounded like they were being played underwater.But many for me have their own personality...I'm just wondering how that Bon Jovi tape got in this box.
