Dead in Hollywood: Coming Soon!

Hello Deaders,

Hard at work on the next 4 Dead in Hollywood fanzines! “Marilyn of Avalon” will tell the story of Marilyn Monroe’s year and a half living on the island of Catalina off the coast of Southern California. “The Crucifixion of George Michael” will focus on that infamous day when George Michael was arrested for “lewd conduct” in a Beverly Hills restroom. “Prince” will be a tribute to the life of one of my favs and my journey this past April to Prince’s home and studio Paisley Park. “The Night Stalker” will be an in-depth retelling of one of California’s most horrifying serial killers, Richard Ramirez.

Sleep tight, Dead in Hollywood

Let's go...

Last night I was working on the upcoming zine "Dead in Hollywood: The Crucifixion of George Michael (Issue #11) when I spilled a glass of water on my laptop, frying it. I lost everything! Or so I thought. Spending three dollars a month on iCloud storage space turned out to be quite the bargain. The laptop was not so lucky. I'm still hoping to finish the issue before the L.A. Zine Fest on May 26th. I pray to George Michael that I will. "The Crucifixion of George Michael" will focus on Michael's arrest on April 8, 1998, for a "lewd act" in a public restroom in a Beverly Hills park, forcing the pop icon out of the closet. Michael's helped me come to terms with my own sexuality. At 13, my conservative, Trump-loving uncle bought me Michael's "Faith" album for Christmas. He's never really spoken to me after I came out years later in 1998. It's not just pop icons and mythical religious figures who are shunned and crucified. BTW, that uncle also introduced me to En Vogue's "Funky Divas" album on a road trip to Mexico when I was 14. Maybe I'll send him a copy of the zine when I'm finished. Maybe it'll free his mind and help heal the pain. DEAD IN HOLLYWOOD: THE CRUCIFIXION OF GEORGE MICHAEL (ISSUE #11) COMING SOON TO THE WILL ROGERS MEMORIAL PARK IN BEVERLY HILLS.
