Tale of Two Marches

April 30, 2010

With summer almost here, and the Arizona state government trying desperately to remove any doubt that they’re bats**t crazy, it’s a good day to celebrate that we don’t live one state over. Why not celebrate by sticking it to the man tomorrow at two of LA’s long standing annual traditions: t?

The Doo Dah Parade in Pasadena, sometimes held immediately after the Rose Parade but now being held in May, is a celebration of all things weird. The above video shows a group of circuit benders: people who hack into old electric keyboards to make them beep like R2D2. Good stuff. In the video, the marchers even commute to the parade via the Gold Line.

And Downtown is LA’s annual May Day rally, no doubt to be fueled this time around by disgust with the aforementioned Arizona law. Though these rallies are going on around the world, the downtown rally never fails to showcase LA’s own brand of proud leftism.

So get out there and do something different – hopefully without being arrested.
