By: Mike Marino

Prometheus Factor

The Army Diaries


The Atomic Hula is a literary labyrinth about coming of age of a 15 year old runaway in the altered states Sixties. It's a writers journey on a road that takes him from living as a busted, broke beachbum in Hawaii to the sleazy streets of the Sunset Strip. It ends with the Death of Hip at the end of the Summer of Love in San Francisco. It's hipsters, sinners, saints, a whacked out cab driver named Doc Yucatan, a transexual beach bum and enough sex, drugs and rock n' roll to last a lifetime.
The Atomic Hula is bio-graphical and bio-hazardous at the same time. All events are true and only the names have been changed to protect the not so innocent.

THE ROADHEAD BOOK
By: Mike Marino
Where Pop Culture & Chrome Meet Asphalt & Art!

THE ROADHEAD BOOKSITE - ENTER

Pop Culture guru Mike Marino looks at the '60s and beyond through his own kaleidoscope, where rock met revolution. Spewing quips like a psychedelic lawn mower run amok, he drags us, more than likely kicking and screaming, through a past few of us knew and even fewer would admit. This is Truth barred from the history books--- or as Marino would put it, the Red, White and Screwed. Could cause nausea, night sweats and loss of appetite. Void where prohibited. Frank Gutch, Jr.

Writer On The Storm

This is an experimental online collection designed to "liberate the literati" from themselves. In the words of Bill Faulkner, "Good literature be damned, just let the words fall to the page and have fun with one another." It is a compelling compilation of articles, rants, raves, rambles and rock n' roll by author, journalist and pop culture dumpster diver, Mike Marino who is as politically incorrect as they come and has a lock n' load style of writing that will fire a warning shot over your head. Some of the articles are written by Dr. Sandoz Diego Cerveza, Mikes purple-hazed and double-daze altered-states alter-ego. This popster writer on the storm tackles everything from a Jerry Garcia Tour of Haight Ashbury to Why Rocky Mountain Oysters are good for the soul! Hot Rod Flicks to Hot Rod Chicks! Great Ghosts of the Great Lakes to Atomic Hula's! It even includes a Cheech and Chong-a-Thon Grassy Bowl Tour and a Counter Culture Tour of Amsterdam!
