The dangerous side of walking

Posted: October 22, 2012 in Uncategorized

So today I get on the buss and there’s a young man with tattoos and a neck brace. A stop later another young man with tattoos gets on. He proceeds to talk about how he just had his neck brace removed due to being hit by a car while on his skateboard. I ask him his name he says Christian and proceeds to tell me about his accident. It turns out he was hit by a van whose driver was on the phone. This makes me realize how disconnected I have been while driving my car. We are so wrapped up in our tiny bubbles here in LA that we don’t interact with each other. I know many times that I have almost ran into someone as a result of not watching where I was going. It isn’t healthy the way we are all disconnected in these times. What happened to the sense of community and togetherness that used to prevail? Is it dead due to the Internet being our only connection with each other?

I am a certified music geek! I actually went to school for audio production. And music is my very favorite thing in the world! When I had wheels I was able to handle LA’s traffic by listening to whatever new stuff I downloaded. I now wear headphones during my travels and will post songs that make up tue soundtrack to my adventures. I think the tittle of this one is self explanatory!

Today marks the first instalment of our Daily Douchebag category. This story comes from street team member Pinkey! So pinkey was at CVS the other day and ran into this idiot. He stopped to get a soda before jumping on his next connection. He sat in line for five minuites and was starting to wonder what the holdup was. When all of a sudden the guy in front of him at the register turned to the side. Where he was paying for a soda in change. REALLY!!!! GTFOH!!!! First off even the cashier was like “you count that out I am going to help these people.” Secondly look at your gut dude, you dont need a damn soda if you have to search the dang couch cushions for it. Thirdly its peak hours homie people got places to be, you know you are wrong for holding up a line. So CONGRATULATIONS dude you get the first ever Daily Douchebag category!!!

Thanx to Pinkey for the story!!!

One of the things you must know about me is I looooove street art!!! Grafitti, stickers, stencils, or installations, to me it is the last pure art form because alot of the artist are doing the art just for the sake of doing it. They dont get paid and in fact could go to jail,and sometimes do, for placing their creations where the world can see them. This is an installation I love. Its on Gower next to Paramount studios and changes all the time.Image
