Hello everybody!

I'd like to ask everyone that has some of my artwork, especially any of my paintings, to please send me a copy of it so I can post it here on my blog. A photo is fine of course. There's been so much over the years that I've sent out that I've forgotten about, which is no surprise since my memory is half dead. I've had so many head injuries over the years, chemical and otherwise, that I'm surprised I remember ANYTHING. I'm sure there's dementia in my future but i try to stave it off by exercising my brain as much as possible. i do crossword puzzles everyday and read everything I can get my hands on. The library here is the best and biggest in the state. My Mom sends me books also. I thought of trying to list all the books I've read since I've been down but the list would definitely be too long. just listing the AUTHORS would cover several pages. I've read everything from westerns, fantasy, action/adventure, espionage, political, suspense, etc, etc. Also a lot of non-fiction: self help, religious writings, true's not like I haven't had time on my hands! There has not been one single day in the last dozen years that I haven't had a book that I was reading. Right now I'm reading a shit kicker (western) I don't read them very often but I just got in the mood for one. It's like movies you don't just watch ONE type of movie. Not unless you are seriously simple minded. (There's a lot of "those" in here). One type of book that I DO NOT read is cop books. I don't read any books that the protagonist is a cop. So many people in here, most actually, read cop books. I would never waste my time reading about some "hero" pig. That's an oxymoron in my eyes. And it's lazy writing. Like when an AUTHOR writes of a character that's an AUTHOR. I'm sure it's easier to write about what you know but DAMN! If an author can't think any deeper than that... bur then again sometimes you need something light to read, something that's easy to grasp. I have days when I'll read the same sentence over and over and just can't grasp it. Brain damage! I'd like to read more "conspiracy theory" stuff but since i don't have any internet access it's hard to find in here. Not that I believe necessarily most of that stuff, but it's entertaining and I like the fact that there CAN be different explanations for things other than the "official" story. And i like the fact that there are people that are willing (and able) to think for themselves, no matter that they sound loco. My ex wife Ellen Mackay ( ordered me a subscription to "Paranoia Magazine" years ago and I kept every issue for several years until same asshole guard threw them away because they were "expired". (I'm not going to get started on these guards right now!) Anyone who feels up to it can always download some good conspiracy crap and send it to me. I can have anything FROM the internet, I just can't have access to a computer myself. Actually I can't have anything that shows any "frontal nudity" so keep that in mind why? Who knows?
It's not like I'm underage. They won't let us have any "frontal nudity" but we can have all the ASS shots we want! Maybe it's a conspiracy to turn us all gay! Actually I've heard that the nudity issue is because of these terrible female guards. They felt offended because we were allowed to have "adult" magazines. It created a "hostile work environment". Well, no shit! You work in a fuckin' prison, you fucking moron! It's hostile by design. Those lesbian man haters should NEVER be allowed to work in prison. It's a conflict of interest. They should be working in a WOMEN'S prison. Not here where they can get off by trying to make our lives miserable. Anyway... enough of that. There are actually a couple of VERY nice female guards here. But they are definitely the exception.

Prisons gather some of the worst people in the world and I'm talking about prisoners AND guards. There are also many great and wonderful people here and it's tragic that some of these people are in exile here. I'm including myself of course even tho' I may be a bit biased, but I am not as bad as the system makes me out to be. Everyone knows the DA lies. That's his job, but everyone who knows me knows I'm not the "criminal mastermind" that they call me to justify in their own mind giving me a 32 to life sentence for a 1/2" scratch. Granted, it was done w/a knife, but it was inadvertently done and it was in defense of my girlfriend who was being attacked AND this tiny scratch didn't even need stitches! It definitely doesn't justify a life sentence even if I MEANT to do that. Later I'll dedicate a posting to telling my side of the story and to the criminal tactics used against me to convict me. It's a LONG ugly story and I'm not up for the emotions it brings right now. Later.

So... on that note... I'm gone for now. 'Til next time.


PS: The drawing of the guillotine was not done by me except for the banner. I just like the drawing.

Hey Scot! I wish I did have one of your painting! I saw a few u sent to the gal, Sandra? They're wonderful. Id love to see the ones that u no longer have. I can only hope the folks u sent em to will take a photograph of your art and post it here for all of us to see. You have really come up as an amazing artist. The paintings I saw were very, very good!! I loved them! I hope you're doing as well as can be. At least you're at the best place u can be, providing u have to be there! The weather is good there, the grounds are nice, Eucaliptus trees, wildlife, its peaceful at times there. Thank God you are not somewhere like cochran in the desert, or somewhere worse. You're closer to family, making it easier for them to visit, if they do indeed visit....I hope so. I don't know if u have contact with Guero ~ Arnold. If so tell him hello. I lost all addresses. I hope and pray for you to have the best day! Take care and I will try to send u a few cool postcards soon. ~peace & blessings~ always. Krickette~

I was reading this and realized I know a girl who writes for Paranoia Magazine, I didn't remember sending you the subscription until I read this. I met her a few weeks ago. When I see her I will find out if she is interested in writing to you.

Hey Scot, just read your post. Sorry for your situation. Sucks beyond belief. One less thing for you to worry about, no one can turn you gay. You are born gay or not. I know, as my youngest son is gay. And quite awesome, by the way. Just thought I'd share that bit of knowledge. Keep your spirits up. Looking forward to your next post. Retia

Hey Reck, it's Frankie. your paintings look rad. Sorry I haven't been in much contact. Life ain't been so easy for me out here lately. But I'm staying out of prison. I just found out about this blog. I will hit you up this week on it. And I'll try & shoot a kite in the mail soon.
Love you Brother, Stay Strong- Frankie V

Hey, Reck! It's Joanie (B.J.). Glad there is now a blog to keep in touch with you. I was going on your Facebook page for updates, etc, but it's not quite the same, knowing that you don't actually see it. The way you were railroaded sucks and I hope that at some point, it will be realized/remedied and you will be out far sooner than your sentence dictates. As for me, I am a mother of two, although only one lives with me. I am a litigation secretary now, working for a workers' comp firm for the moment doing, of course, comp as well as some subro. I will keep this short for now. Know that I miss you much. Will keep in touch. Much love, my friend.

I am doing well, and hope that very, very soon, you will be doing far better. I think it was far earlier than '87 that I saw you, but my memory from that time is, unfortunately, not the best. Just for the record, I was never with Bobby...hahaha. Just the thought makes me laugh. lolol. I am back in contact with quite a few peeps from back then and didn't realize just how much I missed all of you until I found you all again. I stay in contact with your oldest who, by the way, is the spitting image of you. I just wish he wasn't all the way in Bakersfield. Scot and my son, Kyle get on pretty well. It warms my heart to see them together. I spend time with the Creamers, Mari Lane, of course Delphi, Billy Dyson and a few others. Funny, I ran into Midget of all people and he told me how to reconnect. I would promise to write the old fashioned way, but again, unfortunately, I am not really the pen to paper type. This works better for me. lol. Sending love and support always.

Like I said, not much of a pen to paper type, but I will do it special just for you, along with a photo. I don't know if Jimi knows about your blog here, so I will be sure to let him know. Hopefully that way you guys can reconnect. He has a mirror on his outdoor bar at home that I believe you drew the artwork for. It has a bunch of the old Hollywood homeboys mentioned on it. It's awesome. You likely have the right BJ, too. A lot of folks apparently thought Bobby and I dated (hahaha). Gonna make this short so I have something to saw when I actually write (lol). Much love and thinking of you often.

Hey Reck, laughed my ass off at your ass shots conspiracy. My brother in law is a CO and just so happens to think his shit doesn't stink. My felonious friendships always bums them out. I think I'll run this consiracy by him and see what he has to say, maybe do a National Enquirer type article on the topic.

Been really sick for 3-4 months now, putting 2 letters in the mail for you tonight.

Take care,

Hi Scot It's Eva. I figured this will probably get to you the quickest. I scheduled an appointment to bring Seven to come see you this Sunday 6/1 but just received a call from the prison ombudsmand We wont be able to visit until we are re approved. They said the approvals are only good for 2 years. Seven needs to come see you he is making some bad choices (compared to most kids his age they aren't that bad. But for Seven they are and they need to stop before they get out of hand) If you could send some new visitation papers soon I would appreciate that Thanks Scot Hope to see you soon Eva and Seven have your mom call if you need anymore info 661-800-2778
