La La is a name bestowed on me by a good friend and it just ‘stuck’. I’ve had many names throughout my lives but this fits as a suitable persona. This journey will be one focused on Pop Culture and my personal views on the cause and effect of the incredible, the unbelievable and the significant. I will put out questions even those that have no answers, everyone has a role to play in this never ending story. My credentials include Music professional, avid Book reader, Poetry lover, Film fan, Art admirer and lest we forget I’m of sound mind and feel common sense is on the side of the greater good and should always be in the room. Final word; My opinions are my own.
Wez Lundry is a professor, a reverend, a doctor, a DJ and a staff writer for Thrasher skateboarding magazine. When he is not poking fun at “the kids” you can find him sipping cappuccino and admiring art. His claim to fame is working at Seattle’s Fallout Records for a decade before, during, and after the glory days of grunge music, an entirely made up genre that seems to be enjoying a comeback. He lives in Phoenix, Arizona, and when he is not actively trying to get out of Phoenix with his lovely wife Meg, he is busy skating the empty pools of the great financial collapse.
