In part A of this episode which is actually the second half of their conversation, Mason is joined by the coolest Internet Celebrity superstar ever Alexi Wasser for a knock down drag out discussion about one of the strangest and coolest animes of all time FLCL! The Only catch? Alexi has never seen anime before in her life. This may have not been the best choice for her to start watching but it leads to some really interesting if not hilarious discussion as we plumb the depths of the surreal in an attempt to piece together coherancy out of one of the craziest and most abstract anime OVAs ever produced! All right here in this episode of Anime Attic presented by Meltdown Comics!

Book stores aren’t supposed to exist anymore. Especially independent ones.

The sad truth is that, at one point, Amazon and waning attention spans massacred these outlets, turning customers into e-shoppers and proprietors into paupers. Which is why exceptions have to be exceptional.

Meltdown Comics on Sunset Boulevard is one of those special misfits.

It’s a 10,000 square foot playground offering cartooning and writing classes, open mics, events, shows—the store’s even spawned a network television series starring names even non-geeks recognize. Oh yeah, and the place also sells comics. Tons. Everything from the spandex set to avant garde graphic novels. French, Spanish, Japanese creations, lots of toys, plus books with characters who grapple with love, rejection, and how to pay the rent—issues the store’s 45 year-old bearded Chilean owner has faced repeatedly for the past 26 years.

“I lucked out,” said Gaston Dominguez-Letelier, who opened Meltdown in 1993 with his then-wife Ilia. “I do daily what I love. When I started out, it was scary. Because if I fail, I’m done. So there was no option to fail.” Read the rest of the article here: http://smashd.co/take-a-page-from-meltdown/
