The Compton Chronicles is a new feature on the R&RRH scene.  It is a chronicle of back in the day Compton and all of the exploits and foibles that can be remembered and shared.  Enjoy!

Compton Chronicles

Mission Statement
Something’s happening here… and what it is is an attempt by those who came straight outa the Compton of the ‘60s to document in written, graphic, photographic, and recorded form the essence of those heady times.   Although it was a culture and a scene influenced by literature, philosophy, spare change, crash pads, oatmeal, brown rice, consciousness expansion, spirituality, and outlandish humor, it was the music from both the times and the town itself that most defined the continuum.  The process of gathering testimony as to the anecdotal behaviors in question will, no doubt, initially tax the collective recall of those participating in the journey.  But as submissions begin to arrive and the repository becomes available technologically to all involved, memories will jog and muses will take seats at the table.  It will be as a flower unfolding… a dream in a constant state of becoming.  It should also prove quite hilarious!

Getting serious about life
Yes Doug is at it again.  Pretending to care so much about all the crazies and the staff at Napa State Hospital.  The make-believe Don Quixote that is so passionate, at least superficially, while he endangers his job by antagonizing the administration with his confrontive remarks.  Using hospital resources to “incite job actions” resulting in his email privileges being suspended.  Will he ever learn?  He says “does somebody have to be killed?” to get administration to do something about the violence in the hospital?  Staff that don’t even know him champion him  for speaking his mind.  Yet this is not diplomatic.  How does one change a system that is so complicated?  Mark and Nadine have warned him not to do this.  Meanwhile his son Karl has enrolled in Ex’pression a school for the digital arts in Emeryville, finally getting serious about life.  Doug should do the same.

I Love the Rock and Roll Rest Home
I Love the Rock and Roll Rest Home... and I want to see more of it more often!  I wish the "keepers" at the home would let them out more often... get them off their ass and keep the site current!
