Okay Culture Sponges! Here we go!
I have never led a Hollywood iphotography tour in Hollywood. And this one will be crazy fun! It is our goal to soak up all that is incredibly tacky, touristy, and sugary sweet and sour that is Hollywood Blvd.
From Super Heroes trying to make a buck in bad costumes, to freaky street performers banging out a song, to every tacky tourist from Bangladesh to Berlin. This is your chance to take photos or even videos of everything tacky that America has produced in the last 100 years!
Now as true Culture Sponges, you will need to be dressed as truly tacky tourists. YOU KNOW I WILL BE DRESSED TACKY! We need to blend in right?
And remember to bring some cash, because you never know what truly awful cheap crap you may find. Also , as I am personal friends with Street Superman, and Street Catwoman, they work on tips too.
We will travel from one horrifically bizarre spot to the next, stopping to get as many people involved in our explorations. I know every great food stop, from classic dark divey Italian food to a world of 100 tequilas. Wax Museums? Got 2 on our travels. And Yep we will either go or pass on by. You vote.
As we travel from one unique historic haunted hideaway to not so unique kitsch store, we will finally hit our last spot The Woods, where we will share photos, a soda or a cocktail. I want to see what you found to be truly Culture on our 4 1/4 block stroll down one of the worlds most famous blvds.
Culture Sponge Gear:
1) Comfy walking shoes
2) Lomo- lowfi camera or camera in a phone
3) Cash to buy food, drink or that Justin Bieber T-Shirt
4) Best collection of neon sunglasses, bad jewelry, cheap cologne or multi-colored pant suit
5) My Map of stops and notes of local color commentary and history (in case you get lost)
6) Take Redline to Hollywood Vine Station or Park at Argyle or adjoining Public Parking down Argyle or street meters.
More Map Details coming! But basically we zig-zag down Hollywood and Vine to Hollywood and La Brea.
