Alarcon

M.E.A. has been writing for a paycheck since 1996. He published titmouse, the critically renowned fanzine that surprisingly got a minor distribution deal outside of the US. He wrote Boy About Town for the Orange County Weekly, the only memorable element of the column being its title nicked from an old b-side by The Jam. Since then, he's written for the OC Register, Time-Warner, Angeleno, and other publications as well as a handful of dot.coms. He's currently the managing editor for POPLife magazine and he's trying to round up his former band, The Misanthropes, in which he played sloppy rhythm guitar, in hopes of a reunion and cash in on the garage band movement that they preceded by nearly ten years. His hobbies include revenge and collecting Smiths memorabilia.
