October 17, 2011

I met Charles Porter from United Coalition East Prevention Project when I was working on a cover story for the LA Weekly, Coming Of Age In The Mouth Of Madness. He was advocating to clean up the Ford Hotel

excerpt: "Man, it was ghetto up in the Ford. Crackheads and handicap people. Lots of murders, lots of killings. I even witnessed a death right in my face. She was like a mother to me. It was messed up, seeing her die."

PAVEMENT PODCAST: Life After Life

July 11, 2011

PAVEMENT by Sam Slovick is a transmedia series. It's a print piece in the LA Weekly, a video, pod cast & photo gallery.

I met Bill from a friend of mine who was in prison with him. He said Bill changed his life. He'd been out for a couple days after serving 26 years of a life sentence when I met him and did this story.

excerpt: Bill willed himself into manhood. Set his intention and chiseled away, etching out his character for 26 years. He never received a 115 (violation for rule infraction) the entire time. It's a rare distinction. He also got some training; he's a draftsman and a graphic designer with some collage under his belt. "I maintained myself that way. I kept my youth. I've still got a young heart. I've got young mind. Not a young mind to get in trouble," he says.

I met Charlie Romero from a friend who works with him at an Aids clinic in East Los Angeles.

excerpt -- The end of an era for Charlie Romero; sequestered in a self-imposed polyester prison, held captive in unimaginable synthetic fabric blends, he is now properly emancipated.
