Historian: You've never been to Venice Beach?Me: (my life has been a hollow, empty shell.)
So we stopped. We walked on the beach. We absorbed some of the local culture. We bought two cds from guys on the strand.
Reggae guy: You will like it! I'm asking just $10, but whatever you can pay.Me: I love music! I am happy to pay for music, especially directly to the musician.Hiphop guy (with another cd): You will like it.Me: Um, we just bought a cd from that guy.Hiphop guy: I know that guy, his music is good. Reggae. Mine is very different. I speak five languages. I am from Senegal.Me: Senegal? Cool. (pays $10 to hiphop guy)Other musician guy: (brandishes cds)Me: (flees)
We listened to the cds while we drove up Topanga Canyon. And that was pretty awesome.
