When it Rains

I cruised down to the beach yesterday soaking up the last of the sun before the storm. After I called it a night the rain came. I learned not to skate the streets in the rain or just after because of debris. Yes, I ate it pretty bad.

Today was about being a skater when its raining. So what did it do? Hitting up record surplus in Santa Monica, CA on Pico blvd. Record surplus is the alternative record store because they offer a huge (gi-normous) selection of LP's ranging from .92 cents to $10.72. I chose to invest in the 'Pretty in Pink' soundtrack, the 'Ramones' greatest hits, and some early U2. I considered riding it out during the weather break but opted instead to chill out to the Ramones and drink my last
chang beer.

So what's next? More tatooing and anarchist antics by us Venice locals.

I skate LA because I am one of the thousands that realize the waves of the pacific don't stop at the shore line. -camille

Hi Camille (wink, smile) you are so right on about this store, especially since House of Records on Pico (oldest record store in L.A.) closed four months ago. Shamal, we miss you man!
Love the selections you made on your trip to Record Surplus... wait until you hear the new Chaka Khan... FUNK THIS!
