The Philosophers

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

Jakob, you have posted this before.

I don't know what others feel and think of this vid, but I found it really bleak. The neighbourhood (Lincoln Heights? is this well known) is depressing, row after row of the same houses, the skimpy palm trees that line the streets struggling to flourish, the back concrete alleys are devastating to the gardens of a mind. It is not so much the deprivation that is obvious here, but the very starkness of it, reminds me of this scene.

The people, well..... whatever I say it will be classified as 'judgemental' LOL.

Nevertheless I look forward to your vids and you always have the right choice of music to enhance what's happening.

It made me realise how important it is (for me at least) to live in an environment that I can relate to and appreciate and I suppose how fortunate I am.

Hey SM thanks for the comment. Yeah Id say depressing is a euphemism. I was there looking for the areas they shot Terminator 2 in. It is a completely gang-owned area with only blind walls and cul de sacs... but that didn't stop me from wanting to check it out. It all looked too photogenic and real to me, and then I saw this dude. Mexicans in pickups were patrolling their turf but I sensed I probably wasn't going to get in trouble if I made it relatively quick.

So this is pretty much, almost, downtown LA. It is a weird city.

Music - drums by John Engels, my neighbour where I grew up. He is a world renowned genius, played with Dizzy Gillespie and all those guys.
Otherwise I think this is kind of nice stylistically.

Some naughty gay person commented on this, I deleted the comment, but was happy to be reminded of the existence of this beat. It gets funky.
