Remember him from Andrews Boys and his site? Here's a message from him:
One of my friends is running for Mayor of Compton and I made this video to help her campaign. Check it out and let me know if you are cool with posting it to your site. Her site is www.visionforcompton.org if you want to check out her plans for Compton.COMMENTS (5) | CALIFORNIA | DIGG

47 degrees. It almost never gets that cold around here. It was so cold my car wouldn't steer because the power steering was too cold. It wouldn't shift because the transmission fluid was too cold.COMMENTS (6) | CALIFORNIA | DIGG

MLady was saying it would be nice to live somewhere where people care about each other. That's what my mom thought too which is why she left California in 1998. This place is one of the worst states for people. They're heartless and uncaring. They don't even say high to you. My dad tells people hi when he walks and it's just unnatural because most people don't do it. He only gets away with it because he's 60+. The people are even worse when they get in their cars. They talk on their phones, don't pay attention, or purposely screw you over.
I've lived here 34 years or so, and I almost never know my neighbors. Finally after getting a house and living here 4 years we know about 4 of our neighbors.
When I went to Canada it was the absolute opposite. People are so nice that it's weird. You're not used to it. They wave when you drive by. Whenever people DON'T wave, they're the weird ones.
It would be so much better to live somewhere else with less people and nicer people. The middle states are actually the better states except for the smoking, and lack of OCEANS but oh well.

California Finally Gets Good Plates Again
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on January 2nd, 2013 @ 12:56AM
You'd think for one of the biggest states we'd have the best plate choices but instead it's been the WORST. Stupid white. I do like the cursive California. The new plates have the stupid DMV url on it. Even worse.
- Legacy license plates: Under AB 1658, the Department of Motor Vehicles will start accepting applications for specialized licenses plates that replicate plates from the past. Styles from the 1950s, '60s and '70s will be available. The DMV will not begin production unless at least 7,500 are ordered.
New Plates. I may get the blue/yellow one. I've always loved that one and was mad when I could no longer get/use it. The black one is also awesome. It used to be impossible to get. I don't know what I'd put on it though. I've been thinking for hours. I'd like to get a random good one but my current random one is the best ever for a random plate. I'd hate to downgrade and they don't seem to let you keep the same random plate numbers.

We're about 5-10 mins from the beach which means the coolest temps.
Today I walked out my door and was blasted with massive heat. I had to bike in it. Some dumb girl was jogging haha. It's hot all week long too. And this is beach hot, if you're inland you're looking at 100s.COMMENTS (3) | CALIFORNIA | DIGG

"Like" is a terrible disease that plagues California. Everyone says it. I like say it all the time too. It's hard not to when everyone says it. I suppose it's like parts of Canada when they say "eh?" The other day I parked the car and there were kids out there and one girl said it like every other word. This employee came from Chicago. She says it 50 times per paragraph. This girl came from Tenesee, she says it. It seems to pass it's way around the whole US.COMMENTS (6) | CALIFORNIA | DIGG

Summer jobs return to Wild Rivers in 2014
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on April 3rd, 2012 @ 9:56AM
YAY - I was watching Malcom in the Middle (season 1) and they went to Wild Rivers in the episode. It was funny noticing every thing that we know there. They put up fake signs for the show and put some sand that wasn't normally there. You could see Irvine in the background.COMMENTS | CALIFORNIA | DIGG
Assholes remove the firepits from the Beach
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on March 14th, 2012 @ 12:01PM
We've been using them every year for 15+ years. Some people said they'd been using them for over 40 years. What stupid fuckers. They took the parking fee from $5 to $8 to $10. Then $20 on holidays. Now they remove the fire pits. That beach already has useless waves. So that just leaves the fire pits as a source of entertainment. Now we all have to go to plain jane boring Huntington Beach for fire pits with the gang bangers. F those assholes. They ruined a yearly thing. I hope there is enough backlash to restore them.COMMENTS (1) | CALIFORNIA | DIGG

Yesterday: Festival of Whales
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on March 5th, 2012 @ 10:29AM
We went to Dana Point (beach/harbor) and they had some cool events. They had a pirates digging for treasure event. You could find a diamond. One person found it. Me and M. Bacon dug up THIS. $60 coaster. It's these little plastic tubes you dig up and then go turn them in for prizes. My knees were so f-ed up kneeling along the sand. I dug for 1 hour. After the first find, I combed the whole treasure area and never found anything else. We also found a cheap prize, a Matchbox car. So they charged $20 for 2 shovels and we got about $65 in prizes. It was pretty fun. Tiring though. My knees are so like graveled up. It looks like you knelt across a cheese grater. The other family we were with found a cool watch and a marshmello shooter. They got screwed. The watch is pretty cool. I wonder if it's worth more than $20.
They had sandcastle building but only about 3 people showed. They lost on that event.
They had a duck race but $10 a duck and didn't look like anyone did it.
Overall it turned out pretty well. Dana Harbor is awesome.COMMENTS (1) | CALIFORNIA | DIGG
Great Park Balloon Blots out Sun
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on February 5th, 2012 @ 7:04PM
I thought this was interesting. The Balloon blocked out the sun and then it created a big shaded area that was nice and cool. The ring where people sit even created a circle ring on the ground.COMMENTS | CALIFORNIA | DIGG

We went to China Town
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on January 28th, 2012 @ 11:31PM
Road the train like sardines. They gave away 100 free tickets so the whole train was packed. Everyone who wasn't going to China Town parade was mad about all the people. It was horrible.
The parade was "OK" I've seen way better. I guess it was OK for them. I'm used to floats and more things in a parade. I think even our El Cajon one was way better.
I enjoyed the stores. I like turtles. We bought some turtles for $8. If anyone has a clue about taking care of turtles, please post.
We went to this place. It took them 1 hour to even take our order. They had this lady who had worked there 40 years and she couldn't hear anyone or run a cash register. The manager heard my chick complain and he told her all that. But then the other lines saw 10 people go through while this lady was trying to help 1 person. Time to retire!?!?!
Then we miss the train cuz it took too long at 4:40 and had to wait all the way until 8:30. Then we learn they had 2 secret trains that only were mentioned on facebook or twitter. Who the f subscribers to twitter for a train. I guess we should have.
I bought 3 raiden hats! I got a kids one for M. Bacon. Everyone loved them. We got lots of compliments. And compliments on our turtles too. We sat down to eat for 2nd dinner (my chick is a hobbit) and there were 2 other tables with turtles too.COMMENTS (10) | CALIFORNIA | DIGG

-So she made me leave at 8p.m. We didn't get to my dads until 4:15 a.m. What a nightmare. I'm so tired.
-Off to Northern California as I do everyyear. We'll do black friday too. Best Buy has a few games. There's Batman, COD, BF3 on sale at a few places if you still need them.
It's really going to be painful as I leave both BF3 and Saint's Row 3 behind.COMMENTS (4) | CALIFORNIA | DIGG

Link - I just drove by these guys. It was a rasta guy, and some kids. It seems like they're not even on the grass, they're on the cement. I support their cause but they have no cause. They have no spokesmen, no plan, no leaders. They're mad but have no plan to do anything about it.
They had 4 orange blinking construction signs saying DON"T HONK. hah. I didn't but I wanted to. I can't afford to get in more cop trouble.COMMENTS | CALIFORNIA | DIGG

It's a water park that has been around since 1986 or so. http://www.wildrivers.com/default_test.asp. Yesterday we went to the duck race. They keep telling us every year it's the last year that place is going to be open.
It's very sad. We like that water park. M. Bacon loves it. It's also SO CLOSE, like 5 mins away. We're hoping they stay open or that they move the park somewhere else but who knows. F-ing poor people!
"Back in 2007, Irvine Co. declined to renew Wild Rivers' long-term lease. But community pressure – and the housing slowdown – nudged the developer to grant the water park what amounted to four years to find a new location. Wild Rivers failed to secure a new site."COMMENTS (1) | CALIFORNIA | DIGG
Muslims in California
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on September 20th, 2011 @ 11:06AM
In the span of 1 year they're taking over Irvine. That's bad news for the Asians who have ran Irvine. The Mayor is Asian, took it over from a white lady who took it over from a white guy.
As I posted previously, it's so out of place because almost everyone is white/mexican except in the big cities where there are black people and a few cities (San Fran, OC/LA) with Asians.
I went to an upscale private park on Friday and there were 20 Muslims and 2 white people (me and my daughter). I noticed some funny things:
