Fake LA folks sure have fucked over Orange County well enough. It wasn't until they came down to visit their producers living in Laguna Beach that it became "the" OC.

Seriously, I didn't figure that was the name of where I live until my New York friend told me.

those actually do liter the streets of Downtown, Hollywood and even South Central...

the thing with Los Angeles is its enormous and diverse.

On the South Bay you get some some blander, "American dream" upper middle class to rich folks living in stereotypical LA style houses, pure class, no mcmansions to speak of. as you go north you enter the west-side, first you pass through the Cosby districts of Inglewood and Westchester/South Santa Monica.. These folks followed the Northstar via the underground railroad to move it on up.. (creep a bit east from there and your in lynwood/athens/watts and well, that shit is pretty ghetto and segregated black neighborhood)

Stay northbound and you enter the westside, this is the stereotype from the mid-90s movies about LA.. fashionable, trendo, tacky, wealthy, sheltered, vegan, trophy ethnic enclaves, etc etc This is unfortunately what a lot of people across the country think of when they imagine los angeles, and these are a minority by far in this town..

Keep north further still and you enter the Valley, similar to the westside though not quite as cliche and bleh..

No cut a right and go east. Back through Hollyweird (perfect description) and Silverlake (a weird westside style area, its cool though, it has an San Francisco vibe) now you cross into territory more familiar to me.. the Eastside..

the Eastside is chicanos.. its hispanic immigrants from 30 countries.. its ghetto poor with some cool middle class, no body rich. This is what I think of as typical los angelese. Cruise south bound and you go through all the LA neighborhoods.. East LA, Commerce, Vernon, South Gate, Florence, etc etc.. Now you can go south to the beach in Long Beach (which is actually the cooler place in LA now, Long Beach is where its happening, music, art, culture, its great). These are the burbs here on the South/East side. But a lot of southsiders are bringing that mexican gang drama from the eastside to the burbs and its just as dramatic even in bland cities like Downey. In Norwalk, (norwhack)/Pico Riveria, Santa Fe Springs, etc etc, these are a mix of burbs and ghettos. LA is weird like that. One street can be upper middle class, a lovely neighorbood, and just walk up TWO streets and people are getting shot in the street... its crazy like that sometimes..

I got plenty myself so no more room

but I'm sure somebody'll take it.. is it the Legalize It cover? You need to upgrade to the Mystic Man cover riding the Unicycle or at least Wanted Dread or Alive..

if you don't find a taker be an activist and post it on the street, especially somehwhere conspicuous and preferably that already says post no bills.

Fashion foresight? Head up with your own business in mind?

its not that there is a universal risk of getting shot, its not the old west.. its that on blocks across the eastside and south central there is a lot of heavily concentrated gang violence. The key word here is gang, if your not involved, there is not much risk to you. Most people honestly don't notice or are oblivious to this violence because it doesn't necessarily hit them.

in South Central, in 96th street people get shot weekly, it can actually be a bit nerve wracking sometimes like Baghdad for folks. But on 99th it looks like Inglewood Cosby show.. it is literally a trip. In Artesia on the south eastside, on Olive Street it is quiet folks, families, poor but relatively nice, two streets over on Apricot Street people get shot twice a month at least, similar to South Central...

another example, whittier is a relatively middle class, mom and pop side of town. nice houses, some money.. and yet my friends little brother got shot in the back of the head execution style in whittier..

shit happens.

if your not affiliated or involved, there is not much for you to worry about.

it's Legalize It, but it's not so much a poster as it is a GIANT fucking poster (4x8).

I'm not an activist and if I were, I'd hang it up.

the only reason I haven't thrown it away yet is because the Bauhaus rolls up nicely inside.

I'm sorry.. you put italics. Around the eastside folks use a similar expression to describe smoking meth, which is enormously popular these days, might explain a lot of the violence.

The Bay never smells bad. The bathrooms are among the cleanest I've seen for ANY ... The theater is rather clean, and the sound and picture quality was quite good. ..... Majestic Bay Theatre helps put an end to my movie going angst. ...

"Godly gaudy bathrooms," I thanked them for.

interestingly NO. fucking shit there is practically NOWHERE to take a piss across this entire damned county. I have to piss on the street so often it is ridiculous. All the homeless and drug addicts and prostitutes ruin it for us relatively normal folks!

what are you talking about, smog.. urine.. guns.. that sounds about like all the social activity Los Angeles has to offer, what more could you possibly want?

upcoming:

April 14 Mad Professor@ the DUB Club (Echoplex on Sunset in Echo Park)
April 21 Michael Rose @ DUB Club

the Getty Villa has an interesting exhibit running I wanted to get reservations for, it is free but you need an RSVP/Invite.

Also a Renoir exhibit running at the LA County Museum of Art I believe..

Long Beach always has something running if you just cruise 4th street.. samething with Silverlake down Sunset..
