Re: Echo Park Locos

m Just wanted to know your thoughts about this article, including Alonso. A little dated. “Woken up at 3 AM by gunfire” was/is not that routine in most of Echo Park ‘98, unless you lived next door to the ExP, Diamonds or Teardrops, which apparently this author did. Senior Office Writer is no longer ...

Mi Vida Loca ~ My Crazy Life

OK this is a movie about my hood, so I started this post. I have friends in it, and it's fun to watch for the difference places of echo park that they show. But it's pretty unrealistic, i mean, they portray us as shooting all night/day long. Yes we have gangs and yes they shoot, but not 24/7. Who ca...

Re: A question

Alonso and Everyone: this is a potentially useful place to discuss gang style and symbol as represented by clothing. I also see your point. As it is your www Alonso, do what you feel necessary. Maybe you can just have a Style section, and combine tats, pierces & clothing together, what do you think?...

I think the latter. I have seen entire ExP homies with Raiders or Dodgers jerseys going on bringing those 12packs outt...

but it's real expensive there. Usually second hand stores are the way to go. We can find these shirts in Echo for less than $5
