Hello Esteemed Southern California Boomboxery Members,

 

   At the last Beat Swap in Downtown Los Angeles there was some talk of a possible meet at Venice Beach. So I wanted to post up the idea and see if we get any hits.

 

THE PLUSES:

Central to many members, cool vibe, many people to impress and look like a "Big Shot".

 

THE MINUSES:

The Police!

There is a very good chance we might be harassed if we try to crank it up and since the LAPD shoots first and covers it up second, it's a serious consideration if we actually want to do some "Blasting". There are anti loitering laws, excessive noise laws, anti enjoying the beach laws, anti breathing laws and anti fun laws...ect. (also, if I get shot and they later say I had a gun, I just want to go on the record now and say, I DID NOT HAVE A GUN!)

 

It still would be a cool place for a photo shoot AND if we had to, we could just walk out away from the people and closer to the water. The Santa Monica Pier is another good place for pictures.
(If you have been playing the new GTA5 then you know the spot)

 

I have no date in mind, pretty much anything we agree on as long as the weather is good.

 

YOUR THOUGHTS... :cool:

Chris, you know me, IM ALL IN. Just say when. I'm pretty flexible on most Saturdays, Sundays im free for sure. I'm sure that members Howie76 and ELDIRTYDINO would be down for this. Either beach is good for me, its the same distance for me either way bro. Let's do it, hopefully fresh produce and MacDaddyFreshness can make it, as well as ANY and ALL other Boomboxery members from ANYWHERE ;-)

I was there 2 years ago and LOVED IT, i hung out with the homeless vendors on the strip and had a great time! If you guys go down there you can even get hustled into buying all the new "up & coming" rap stars cd's :lol: ...there were tons of artists selling their cd's when i was there :thumbsup:

I'm so down to spend a day back in LA. This OC life is good but there's nothing like LA. And Venice Beach is one of my favorite spots. Chris, don't worry about the Big Bad LAPD, they'll probably come over and be impressed too. They'll only harass us if we piss off merchants and they complain. Besides, a few 30 and 40 something's with boomboxes are pretty low on the crime totem pole.

And yeah I love interacting with the Venice Beach people. I've seen some funny stuff down there and some crazy stuff too.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from Venice Beach. It's a picture of a homeless guy's tent. Outside of the tent he had a bunch of signs. Since I'm a teacher I had to get a picture of the hand written sign in the middle and show it to my students. It's so simple but yet so profound.

As for meeting up, throw some dates out there and I'll check my calendar. Weekends usually work best but the month of February is crowded with a bunch of family birthdays. But I'll make this happen one way or another.

Sounds like we will have a good time...

 

I'll hit up Adrian and Peter, get those guys involved, they love this stuff  :yes: Maybe we can get Miles out of hiding! :-D

 

It's actually raining in So Cal right now  :w00t: and man do we need it  :-) But I'm sure we'll have some good weather coming.

 

I just can't do it the weekend of the Daytona 500 commercials. 500 laps, 500 commercials!

 

I guess it will be time to dust off the J1 :cool:

Your C-100 will impress the most, but your custom painted Sony has Venice Beach written all over it! That will fit right in! 👍

If we end up walking around bringing the Sony is definitely the way to go, but if we agree to just find a spot and kick it, then bring the C-100.

Decisions...decisions!!!😎

Wait a sec, are you trying to say Venice Beach and Vespucci beach are the same? I'm there like once a week? Lol.

Man Id love to be down there some time. It's just not the same scene or appropriate weather up here around Seattle.
