No Pants Metro Ride ’15 Photos

That, was a good day. I was the ride captain for the Culver City group riding on the expo line. Basically my job was to help people get their passes, to make sure they get on the train, and answer any questions they had. I had a pretty big group with me so that was fun. After we all got on the train we then went to Union Station were all groups from each line converged. After being there for a half hour it was time to start heading to the red line for the final leg of our journey to Hollywood where we flooded the street with our pantsless glory. We then went to near by bar along hollywood blvd, Loaded, and had ourselves a nice little after party. By the time I left most of the people inside had their pants on.

While on my way back home I found a few other people waiting for the train back that had already repantsed by then, and so did I.

I have to say, that was a good first event for the new camera.

On my way to San Diego

Or, well, I’m here now because comic con is currently happening. I took this photo while on the train because if you ask me it’s really the best way to go unless you have a lot of stuff you are bringing or plan on bringing back. I tend to pack light.

LA No Pants Metro Ride ’14

ALA photos will be online later, I just wanted to get these online.

I decided to start the day going along a different rail line so I headed over to Pasadena to take the Gold Line. Met with my Co-Captian, helped out everyone with getting their day pass and to make sure everyone there got on the train. from the looks of it everything was a go to Union. Once we got to Downtown I was to then direct people to the Red Line because we were only hanging around there shortly and once again making sure every that wanted to jump on the train did so. I was stressing out some because of that because It’s sad when people get left behind and worse when those of which that happened to have no idea where to go next.

When leaving Union Station all cars on the train where completely full and it was very hard to move around. Once we got off of the Highland Station we either when to Loaded (which is where most of everyone was at) or Pig and Whistle. While there I meet Nathan Fillion who turns out hung out with us during the event. I shook his hand, introduced myself and told him that it was cool that he joined in. Hung around for a while in both places, met with other friends of mine. It was fun, So much worry which I think we’ll need to figure out a new plan to get everyone from here to there, and not have train cars to crowded. Oh, and bonus. As I was looking through my photos for editing I discovered that I also got some photos of Chloe Dykstra and Chris Hartwick.

Honestly, I a little disappointed about the amount of photos I took, Not sure why I didn’t take more when I know I had plenty of excellent chances to. well, there is always next year.

And remember, Pants are for Squares.

CicLAvia 4.21.13

Here they are, my Photos form the day below. Alright here is the story. The day started off at Union Station getting there at around 9:30, before the official start at 10. I met with some people, talked to them some and near the first hub by Olvera Street. The next leg was going down Main St to 7th, and from there to MacArthur Park. Really, I enjoy riding threw Downtown a lot, the road is nice and smooth and I can move quickly. Then from MacArthur Park I rode down to Venice Blvd and a long the way saw some guys skate bombing. Wow did they move fast, now, very cool and I could of done that myself on my blades because I enjoy that rush, but I still wouldn’t recommend most people from doing something like that unless you really know what you are doing. It can be dangerous. Do not to even think about the idea you might be as good as I am or these other dudes.

Now onto Venice Blvd, where they had 6 more hubs set up and businesses selling and giving out products and other neat prizes. For example have you heard of Cuties? Well that also make a smoothly like drink. I downed it right there. Also ran into what I thought were Derby Dolls but were some of the Angel City Derby Girls. ALl good still, and gave me a flier for coming matches and looking for girls willing to join. Soon after I found some people giving out these pink mustaches in connection to something called Lyft. From what I was told it’s a phone app made to help a person thats stranded and needs a ride somewhere, and it helps in making new friends. Talked to some people at a place called The Massage Garage giving out coupons and giving out some short massages to riders during the event.

Later met some guys from a group called I believe called South LA Peace Love and Family Ride, they gave me a site address but that sounded kind of long, so I googled it and came up to this page which I believe is it. I saw them blasting some Eminem on some really good speakers and being me I said “play some Metallica!” asked if I had any and said hook up it. One of them asked if I have The Black Album or Master of Puppets. I do but play off of Ride the Lightning because it’s my favorite from them. Found a group known as Good Los Angeles and call themselves A Community of People who give a Damn. I really like that slogan. And last an origination called Los Angeles Walks, because, well, some people do walk around sometimes like I do. But I was on my Rollerblades for this day but that.

And last I made it to Venice Beach, was a nice long ride but didn’t like the fact some places along the road were very bumpy. Then it was time to make my way back to downtown but looking at the time I realized there was no way I could get back by the time cars starting flooding the streets again so I went to the Culver City Expo Line station along the route and headed back from there. I rode just over 22 miles. My poor feet, and I realized on my way home I actually got a sunburn just above my left elbow. The rest of me was fine but interesting to learn I can in fact burn in some parts of my body still.

And I’m glad I wore shorts this time.

LA No Pants Subway ’12 photos

Yes! they are online now. Alright now let me tell you about my adventure, first thing I did was I went down to Hollywood to find the right phone store because I was having a problem with mine and I wanted it fixed so I can use it again. During this extra trek I was finding that my timing seemed to of been going well then I started heading back over to North Hollywood to meet with my crowd for the ride to Union Station. So as I was heading over to union one of the people I was talking to on the ride over had the idea we run over to the other cars and meet with idea people on them and take more photos and after riding the train for a half hour we finally made it.

Greeting us at Union Station was a larger number of people that rode over from other lines in LA coming from Pasadena, East LA, and Koreatown. After roaming around the place for 30 to 45 minutes we all hopped back on the red line going to Hollywood once again for a group photo at the Chinese Theatre and then just wander about the area.

Lots of people on the subway come to discover this and found it very funny, while others clearly looked disturbed and likely wanted to shoot themselves in the face.
