Writer on DreamWork’s “Trollhunters”, YouTuber and podcaster Chad Quandt opens up to Natasha about his big dealbreaker: lack of ambition. We all have different goals and dreams, but can you be with someone who doesn’t have any? Are men who are ambitious viewed differently than women who are ambitious? Can we help someone become ambitious? With a bevy of ambitious folk in LA, how do you balance your dream and your relationship? So. Many. Questions. Chad and Natasha try to answer them in this very candid, honest and revealing episode of Kinda Dating, 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:
