Dark Realms

“Dark Realm Records: A Music Heaven”
There’s a place, a very dark place. It used to be in Downey, but they have moved to another location. The place I’m talking about is Dark Realm Records. This place, for me, is one of the most wonderful stores Iv’e been in. It’s also a small mom and pop type of deal which makes it all the more special. Everything from the black walls, dark carpet and dimmed lighting… Not to mention band merchandise in all forms, shirts, jackets, bags, pins, vinyl decals, wristbands, jewerly, posters, records, CDs and DVDs… Not many people know about this store, many drive by and not even see it because it is so small and dark. But… It’s a paradise for those who do.
As soon as you walk in, the dark atmosphere relieves your body from the harsh sun. Hanging from the ceiling is a small black chandeillier with tiny skulls on it. You can hear some fast-paced guitar riffs and raspy voice sofly playing in the background; comming from a small stereo on a seat behind the counter. The temperature seems just perfect, not too hot or cold, just comfortable, and a little cool. A Nikki Sixx-looking guy greats you from behind the black counter and chats up a nice, friendly conversation as you look around (not to mention he is overly hot like Nikki Sixx and it just makes you want to talk to him more). His buddy messes with some CDs, thinking about which one to put on next while still keeping on beat with the conversation.

A long, double-sided rack of CDs runs down the middle of the store. You see the big names like Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, King Diamond, Pantera, Anthrax, Slayer, Cradle of Filth, ACDC, Ozzy Ozbourne ect… But most of the music you will see there are underground bands that most people haven’t even heard about, the ones that only the hardcore metal listeners might know. You’ll also see some Norweigen black metal, in which all the bands have really weird sounding names. To the left, many shirts, sweaters, and bags with various band names and logos hang on the wall. A display case below holds the the wristbands, pins, jewelry and decals. To the right there are posters, some for sale and some not, proudly displayed all over the wall. Most of them are signed because the bands have played infront of the store. They have a rack against the wall that has the DVDs and records. On a shelf are some items that are not band or music related at all. There’s some stuff with dragons on it, some with coffins, crosses and skulls; they are the types of things that you would put on a self, snowglobe, statue, knic-knack type things.
They ring up your purchase at a cash register that is a little old fashioned, not the most advanced in technology, that gives out nice little receipts. Your stuff goes into a little black plastic bag. The Nikki Sixx guy takes care of all of these things, his partner just sits with the music. All in all, if you know me, you can see why Dark Realm Records is my favorite place in L.A. even more so than Kat Von D’s tattoo shop High Voltage Tattoo or Practical Magika. Be warned though, being in all that black and darkness really makes your eyes hurt once you have to step back outside into the light again.

It’s best to go as late as possible.

“Centinela Block”

My neighborhood is composed of one main street, a street full of memories and different wonderful people, Centinela Ave. Most of the people who live here would call this neighborhood the “Centinela Block.”
Throughout the day many things happen here at various times of the day. Early mornings, this street is quiet and peaceful. At the time of sunrise it can be foggy and chilly. Not a lot of people walk here and not many cars pass by this early.
When the sun is out around eight in the morning the day starts. It seems like at that time the whole world wakes up. You can hear sirens from ambulances that pass by like lightning. At this time you can hear and see happy children walking to school with their mothers. Hundreds and thousands of cars pass by with many different faces.
By afternoon things are calming down. At this time I can hear different types of music from people who are now relaxing after a long day at work. I can hear blenders and microwaves turned on from my neighbors. Televisions on and children playing. Moms screaming and dogs barking.
At night things go back to normal. Everything is quiet and peaceful. All I hear from my neighbors houses are showers being turned on of people who are getting ready to go to bed. People who are done with their day and are ready to rest. Tomorrow everything will start over again. All the things I see, hear, and smell throughout the day I wouldn’t change for anything because all those things are what form “The Centinela Block”

(H-October) Red Rainbows & such

heat is on

Sun Worshipers are you ready for some rain? Ok, maybe not.
Angels love the sun, and we are all livin it up in this 80 degree Endless Summer, right?

So…What was the orange and yellow rainbow everyone was talking about last Wednesday?
Sounds sick, not the good kind of sic.

Call me kooky, but I’m partial to the five color, traditional rainbow. Who wants a bunch of McDonald’s arches-looking-things floating around in the air…it’s unfair advertising for unhealthy air AND food.
So, in the light and energy spectrum, the older the stuff IS, the more red it becomes.
The cleaner and newer and fresher, the farther away from red it gets…e.g. green/blue/white

I’m kinda thinking an old-azz rainbow ain’t a good sign.

What is happening with our upper layers?
What’s with the crystallized lines in the sky, that we never really hear about, but see often?
No skywriting or hearts here, just random lines, everywhere.

Why do so many people, young and old alike, seem to be getting cancer all of a sudden?
There must be something we can do, or can stop doing.
At least, we can start being kind to one another.

After all, we are all people. We can’t help ourselves. But yet, we CAN help ourselves.

This month, the month of the Harvest, and the celebration of All Hallow’s Eve,
may be a good time to reflect EARLY and before the holiday seasons are on us …
and before we get caught up in what to get who, when, where, and in this economy — how.

Consider acts of kindness. Giving of yourself. Stop the madness and the dying rainbows.
Can we begin to wake up, and honor Mother Earth, each other, and ultimately, ourselves?

Even a little bit may go a long way, in trying a pattern break. Something new, like kindness.
