As open as we are here at HMLC central, we also have our dirty little secrets. Everybody does. And revealing them has become profession for many people and websites. Curse you world wide web!
But without the internet, how would you get your irregular fix of digital passion and Latin heat?
Why am I telling you all this, using our blog to complain? Because I feel compelled to tell you something...
We missed our deadline for the printer.
My apologies amigos, sometimes life gets in the way.
BUT FEAR NOT!!
We were not about to let another year go by without delivering the goods. Being as diligent as we are, there was a contingency plan set up and activated a few weeks ago! What the hell am I writing here? A long drawn out way of saying...
THE 2010 EDITION OF OUR BOOK IS LOCKED, UPLOADED AND AT THE PRINTER!
In just a few weeks, we should have it completed and in our hands and then off to San DIego to sell it to you! Once again, muchos gracias to the nucleus for pulling together and getting everything done.
Beanrobot, L-Dogg, Lady J...Te quiero a todos
The above image is brought to you by Keith Conroy, one of the original contributors to our book back in the mid-nineties. His return was more than worth the wait! You'll find out for yourself next month.

Another quick update and some kudos.
The book is just about ready for print and I am quoting Beanrobot when I write
"This is one of the best editions ever!"
But I want to give a shout out to Mexican Lover, Artist and Friend
Shawn "Calves" Murray
There are a number of people who have contributed to five issues of the book, but no one else has featured the same character each time. Shawn is the creator/artist of "Paco" who has become one of the mascots of our book. With the exception of the premiere issue back in 1996, Paco is the only character to appear in every issue (making this his fifth, consecutive appearance).
There was a moment , due to time constraints, when Paco wasn't going to make an appearance for the 2010 edition, but as usual,
Passion trumps time!
I know many people out there are huge fans of our silent and stout, sombrero wearing hero. But I really want to thank Shawn for devoting his time and talent to our book. His Love shines like a beacon that cuts through a foggy night in the Gulf of Mexico.
Mucho Besos Hermano, the next round is on me!
