D. M. Collins is a writer, editor, journalist, historian, DJ, YouTube VJ, playwright, D-list celeb, curator, luthier, activist, and folk troubadour based in Los Angeles.

He hosts the monthly literary event A Rrose in a Prose, interviews bands for BRGRTV, and is a passionate spokesman for polyamory and bisexual/pansexual/polysexual visibility. Musically, he leads psychedelic folk ensemble Something Witchy and performs dance/spoken word with avant classical soundscape artists WORDS (Lolipop Records).

His past achievements include being the first DJ at dublab.com, founding the Pickle Factory gallery, now defunct (after co-founding the Comix Art Gallery), hosting music segments for Time/Warner’s SoCal’s Finest series, and serving as L.A. RECORD‘s New Music Editor for many years, where he is still a reporter-at-large.

Right now he’s working on a short story collection and compiling a book of his best interviews, which will likely bring Chuck D, Deepak Chopra, Daryl Hall, Earl Scruggs, Gil Scott-Heron, and the Trashwomen together for the first time.

His dog is named Valerie Solanas.

  2. eBook: Anarchy in a Cold War

    The following book might be of interest:

    Book description:

    Anarchy in a Cold War is a novel by Kurtis Sunday set in the West Berlin alternative-squatter-Punk scene during the latter part of the Cold War. The city, a focal point in the conflict between East and West, was a capitalist enclave smack in the middle of Communist East Germany. It was entirely surrounded by the Berlin Wall, complete with razor wire and machine gun posts. There is much that is familiar and much that is not. The Cold War is raging and the missiles are armed and waiting in their silos. If nuclear war breaks out there will be a four minute warning. There is no internet and perhaps NO FUTURE. Reality? Sur-reality? Or hyper-reality?

    Grüße,
    Kurtis
