  • Quintessential LA and California Culture on tap. Everything is Terrible. ArtShow

    This event is going to be an odd one. And yes. There will be big sadness if you miss it. The last event these people did we attended was the "The Jerry Maguire Video Store" in Jan of 2017 If you don't know what that was . . . it was a brand new video store that opened. And it carried only copies of Jerry Maguire. https://www.meetup.com/IWantToDoThat/events/236466299/ The "store" was really 1/4 of the bldg, and the back 3/4 of the space were drinks, and artwork and instantiations and just lots of awesomeness This was the vid for the vid store https://vimeo.com/194721066 So is this https://youtu.be/6hFA9EECmaM The store opening July is is part of a the start of a world tour of sorts. https://youtu.be/8Es3Iw6pvAA It's a world tour that will be in one place. What is "Everything is Terrible?" For over a decade, the obsessive weirdos of video and performance collective Everything Is Terrible! have been plumbing the depths of pre-internet pop culture, raiding video rental shops, thrift stores, and garage sales to find the strangest VHS oddities around. Edited clips of bizarre kids’ videos, instructional tutorials, and late-night infomercials are posted on their eponymous website, ranging from cat massage, to a pedophile-hunting dinosaur, to singing babies that will haunt your dreams. They’ve made seven feature films such as DoggieWoggiez! PoochieWoochiez!, a remake of Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain made entirely from dog clips; elaborate live shows featuring puppets, props, and costumes And there is of course the Jerry Maguire obsession. This is a brick-and-mortar store in East Los Angeles to showcase their films, clothing, artworks, and related merchandise. The kickoff celebration will feature *DJs *mascot costumes *photo booth *murals *a 15-foot tall furry monster *walls made from part of their Jerry Maguire collection. After bringing analog eccentricities into the digital age, Everything is Terrible! is coming full circle by providing a physical home for their special brand funk. More about the Jerry store (now closed after it's one weekend run. And more about what you might expect at this new store https://youtu.be/ExED_i3k0iQ How are we meeting up? That's the ever more fun part. There may be a line. It may be noisy. It may be crowded. It will be awesome. WHEN YOU ARRIVE: Check the message board to see if any of the hosts have posted a location. If they have not . . . THEN: get inside and find a nice spot that will be easy to find, AND POST THAT SPOT. Post where you are. Post what time it is (meetup does not time stamp). Post how to recognize you (usually what wearing or a distinctive physical feature. So it might read something like: Hey everyone: I'm inside next to the giant assemblage of baby strollers on fire. Well . . not too close because the heat may melt by polyester suit. Oh yes . . . it's 8:15 and y'all as total looooooosers as you thought fashionably late would be better. You are missing epic unfolding. You should be able to recognize me. Polyester (track)suit. Black with gold stripes that says Kazakhstan Curling Team with a a Flock of Seagulls type haircut in by back-hair (as I'm balding on the top). But your description of where to find you may read differently. Pretty much . . . smaller hubs will form as the night progresses. The only thing better than going to this one-off event would be making a visit to the Time Travel Mart store https://www.timetravelmart.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOkLEpxqMhw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExGrklHxEz4 But that's for a whole different meetup at or in and whole different time.

  • July 4 Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park Camping Trip [Laughs]

    What are you doing for July 4th Holiday Weekend? Have you ever been to Sequoia National Park? The Sequoia trees are majestic! Let's go and spend a few days in the Park. What's nice about our campsite is that there are NO other campsites right next to us; we are by ourselves. Nearby is a shower, restaurant and convenience store. Perfection! We've done this trip before and had a blast! The cost $100 - goes towards the campground, Thursday, Friday and Saturday dinners plus coffee, oatmeal and pastries in the mornings -- and some other goodies. There are several places to pickup lunch. Roll up your sleeping bag, dust off your tent, have a cushy air-mattress along with your hiking attire and let's hang out the beautiful National Parks. Don't forget your bug spray, sun screen and lounge chair. Of course, bring some money to buy sandwiches for lunch or to shower. Join us on for a great weekend in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks! 1. What do I need to bring? A full list will be provided a week or two before the trip. But basically you need to bring your personal amenities and tent, sleeping bag air mattress etc. 2. What if I don't have a sleeping bag and/or tent? If you don't have a sleeping bag buy one or borrow one. You don't need a fancy one - a $20 one from Big 5 or Target will do. Or you can ask here is someone will share. Every time we've done this trip people have been willing to share tent space. 3. How does carpool work? The organizers will coordinate carpool for confirmed attendees based on where people are leaving from, when they can leave and whether or not they can drive. (Also included is a packing list with everything you'll need to bring and what you can expect.) Departure times are determined by drivers. Expect to hear more about 1 week prior to the trip. Once carpool is finalized we will send out an email with directions to the site. 4. What kind of car is required to get there? Any car is fine. You don't need 4WD or an SUV. You can even drive a lowered car. The roads are paved. 5. What will the weather be like? Typically the weather in the area is high 80's/90's in the day and high 50's/60's at night. It's great weather to camp! 6. What if I don't know anyone else going - is it weird to go by myself? Not at all! Most people come by themselves to these events and have a blast and end up with a new social circle of friends! 7. How do I lock in my spot? This trip is posted on many Meetup groups. I am centralizing everyone going into one group. If you want to go you must RSVP on my main group. Spots go to first paid, regardless of when you RSVP. This trip will fill up quickly so if you want to go lock in your spot with a payment. Here is a link to my main Meetup with more details and payment instructions: http://bit.ly/SequoiaMeetup This has been one of our most popular trips and has always been a great time!
