Friday, May 14, 2010 Essential Venice

You say you're stuck in gritty Cleveland at the end of a long week, and it's dreary and looks like rain, and your best-regular-season-record-in-the-league basketball team just got bounced out of the NBA playoffs by those creaky old guys from Boston, and there you sit, by the edge of that dead lake, trapped and dejected in dark Cleveland? You obviously need a bit of Southern California. You need a bit of Venice Beach.

Words to the wise

Smart says yes. Stupid says no. Be Stupid. - Diesel Jeans ad, Oceanfront Walk, Venice Beach

Beware - Venice Beach is a bit more surreal than Cleveland

Yep, folks out here, the pretty people, are just empty-headed nothings

But the sun is shining and the sky is blue and this is a fine place
