even though Los Angeles is glitz and glamor (ha) and where all the celebrities live,
in many ways its got a lot of
small town flavor.
for example the local heroes in LA
are just as quirky as those in your town, i bet.
theres a woman named Angelenye for example who drives around in a pink corvette.
you feel like you saw a leprechaun when her car glides by
or if you see it parked somewhere.
theres melrose larry green who used to hold signs on melrose
dumb signs like “i know jimmy kimmel”
but if you see him you remember oh im on melrose
rodney on the roq despite having a high voice
is one of the most important djs in the nation
having first played pretty much all your favorite bands over the last 40 years
and when you see him noshing at Canters deli you’ll be starstruck
theres the $5 guy in Silver Lake, Zuma Dogg in City Hall,
but the city’s newest local superstar is this big ass rock thats slowly
as in SUPER SLOWLY making its way through LA on its way
to the county museum on Wilshire Blvd
where it will magically levitate above the ground: its art!
how big is the rock: 340 tons. TONS I TELL YOU
its taking several trucks 11 days to carry the rock 105 miles to the museum.
the rock is so big that when it is carried down a regular road (instead of the freeway)
they have to take the stop lights down.
it could be the craziest thing ive ever seen here and ive seen riots.
whats crazier still is people are losing their marbles over it.
they love it.
they cant take enough pictures of it (even though its wrapped in plastic)
and the news media cant stop reporting on it.
i live pretty close to the museum so when it starts levitating
i will take pictures for you and share in this mayhem.
until then, rock on
