Getting ready for tomorrow’s OC Zine Fest down in Anaheim, CA at the Anaheim Central Library (500 W. Broadway). We’ll tabling in the basement from 11AM - 4pm. Come raise the dead with me!
It’s finally here! This one has been a long time in the making. “Dead in Hollywood: Here Lies Sharon Tate” with original photos by me, Castroburger.

This is how I spend my Friday night, researching the life and death of Sharon Tate by candle light. All the bulbs went out in my dining room and I can’t seem to find the right light bulb so at the moment I write by lap top light and candle light. The candelabra is thanks to a good friend of mine who gave it to me as a housewarming present.
Putting the finishing touches to “Dead in Hollywood: Here Lies Sharon Tate” and once again, I’m finding it hard to say goodbye. Seeing “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” last night didn’t help my summertime obsession with Tate. But after tonight - and after weeks of working on this latest issue -I can finally put Sharon Tate to rest. Tate’s wasted potential makes me ponder my own. Close your eyes, close your eyes and relax...
