Kristy Scott – Currently Crushing COVID
Now, Kristy's back in Southern California, hitting up the hot spots and just living her damn LYFE! She just fucking loves to skate. And all the rest of us get to live vicariously. If you are younger, look up to her example. If you are older, close your eyes, forget about your job, kids and all the other lame adult shit and pretend you are her. It's the latest and greatest health & wellness fad for aging skaters. Transcendental skate rat meditation. 🛹🐭🧘♀️
Celina Meehan – Sister of SLAY
I have always felt a great kinship with Celina Meehan because once, before we knew each other, I leant her my ID to get into a bar in Seattle. Neither of us remembered until we met a second time a few years later and put it together. There is an old legend that says if someone successfully uses your ID to get into a bar, it means you are forever linked as "Sisters of Libation".
The Trooper: Trixie Trujillo Steady Mommin’
Jake Phelps gave me that name and didn’t give me a chance to change it. We started the band on my birthday; they came down to see my play one of my last shows in LA with this other band I was playing with called “The Deadutantes.” It was psychobilly weirdness. The show was at the Knitting Factory. Jake and Tony were down there so we went out afterwards. We went to some hotel and thrashed this room and started talking about starting a band. We ended up calling it “Bad Shit.”

Fabiana 🔥Del-FUEGO🔥 is PRO!
The truth is, reaching out and grabbing Fabi is probably one of the smartest things the screaming hand has ever done. She is totally amazing, just check out this Rough Cut she was featured on last year. Go ahead and skip to the 6 minute mark to see her win the "Keyhole" to the city.
