Despite how much time I spent trying to get there, I had a good time. It started off taking the gold line to the chinatown station, then walk to the closest entrance to Dodger Stadium, which was gated off. So, I had to walk another mile to reach a different entrance which was in fact open. Then it was a walk to the buses taking everyone to the start off location for the cars. Checked out each booth, took photos, and then went looking for a proper place to take photos. took till a few cars had gone down the hill but I had found something.

The location I found was a place that had some of red bull’s own filming crew, and ended up a good place to see some crashes. Had three happen in front of me. It was also rather close to the end of the track I felt lucky to see most of the cars, and there wasn’t many people in the place I was at. And after a car drove by, there was some shade near I can sit at till I hear the sound of the next one heading down the hill. Kind of a trumpet that was played over the speakers places along the track. After 61 cars, I had a long, yet entertaining day.

As for tomorrow, I’ll be putting my photos from the eclipse up.

And for now, start you engines.

The final day. I didn’t get as many photos here, but still quite a few at least. I didn’t say as long during the second day, but had plenty of laughs over all still. I had a really good weekend, and what made it better was seeing friends of mine that I didn’t expect. Would do again next year.

And now, for the final days photos.

Well, At first I thought I didn’t take that many photos, turns out I got more then I thought. Sundays photos should be up tomorrow, but I also need to work on more of my video from politicon. This was my first time at ScareLA, and it’s the first time it was at the LA convention center. I had more laughs then I expected, and knew I would have plenty of them.

Anywho, check out what I have for saturday, hope they don’t disappoint.

SO, I got some of nice photos, Not really a lot, but there was some good stuff there. I also got some video of whackiness going on. Saw some people taken out of a panel, which i’ve heard claims saying they where antifa, others that they where communist, I don’t know for sure, but it was strange.

Then something else strange happened to me. I was walking by this one area, and there were some people together with some trump gear on and I guess some lady walked by and said something to them. One of them starts shouting at her, calls her a traitor and a baby killer. I just said to him “dude claim down.” then starts yelling at me to do so. I stood there confused, then him and his friends start calling me snowflake and long hair. It’s like he was trying to pick a fight with me. Really, Trump had brought out the worst in so many people, both for and against him.

Despite that moment of strange, I had a good weekend. Talked to a lot of people, shared ideas, laughed, it was a good time.

Because at politicon, there is only one party, and that is politicon.

My second day there, and was my last one. Had other things going on with myself while day 2 and 4 were going on. During the morning there wasn’t as much people there, but as the day went on the crowds definitely started building up. Didn’t get as many photos as the first day but still got plenty. This was my 10th year at Anime Expo, and to be honest, not sure I’ll be to interested in going next year. But, time will only tell.

For now, enjoy the show.

Well, that was a day that I can tell plenty of people felt miserable. It was to bad to, because of the extra security coming in, and likely was because of what happened in Phoenix about two months ago. My 10th year there to so that felt it should have been a bit extra special. I was there for a good while, and got some nice shots.

And now, it’s time to check them out.

Well, I sure as hell had more fun this year. That was all kinds of crazy that would like more chances to see, more often. The costumes, the music, dancing, and everyone just enjoying themselves, being who they are. I got to ride the double decker bus to the start of the parade route, which is always the greatest thing. Walked up and down the route as the event was going on and as the day went on, and the closer we got to Highland, more and more people gathered on the side walks to watch. Some of those a part of the parade danced with those watching, and you know everyone had a good time.

I would also say the parade moves kind of slow at times, because I did see some gaps as it went on during the day. After that was over there was the cultural village, with performers of different groups with music and dancing. Sadly, I wasn’t there for to long, because I had something else to goto that evening, but over all, my day was a blast. Can’t wait for that again.

Now you ready to party?

Well, that was a day of all kind of awesome. It started off with Resist March in the morning. Was worried I would run late and might have to play catch up. Well, I got there around when expected, but made it there before everyone started moving. One thing I was worried about was some of the party like atmosphere might be gone, but it was still there. A lot of good signs made, and everyone seemed to have been having a good time. It was a long walk to the end of the route from Hollywood between Highland and La Brea, to Santa Monica blvd, just past Robertson where their were some speakers like Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters.

One thing that I’ve always liked about the parade is the fact there are people giving some stuff out. Mostly something cheap like sunglasses, food samples or drinks. First I saw someone handing out something calling Larabar which I remember from last year. Still good. Also tried for the first time, propel, from gatorade. I liked that a lot. And some other drink called Maxwell. It’s mainly for mixing into drinks, and what makes it interesting is it’s in a resealable can. Nice to know the future is now here.

Another thing that I liked is that after the parade usually, the streets start opening up after all the floats have gone by, but it took a little while longer for that to happen because of the march. I enjoyed walking in the streets extra because of that. I did so much walking that day, and I really enjoyed myself more then I thought I would. It was a good day.

And now, take pride in your work, and the fun you have.

A one day event in Little Tokyo from saturday. A small convention but got plenty of stuff there. One interesting things that happened was a couple of friend are in a band and played a set. they also had a moss pit during a couple of songs. There was also other bands that played, along with other on stage performances. Despite taking place in such a small area, there was plenty that went on. Made for a good day.

And on a side note, my photos from LA pride will be up tomorrow, for those of you waiting.

But for now, here are some cosplayers.

They are online now, that was a fun day, and was in the parade with Queer Nerd Alliance. Got there a bit earlier then I expected, which was fine and got to see more this time then the last 2 years I was there. It was also kind of nice having some ocean breeze come in to cool things off.

I also get more photos this time around while there. Nice to be there for a parade, especially since LA pride isn’t going to have one this year. I can only hope there is still some partying going on along Santa Monica blvd after the march is over.

But for now, check out this party.
