    Kinda Fascinating that the dynamic of this corner hasn’t changed much in 18 years!

    My favorite is the Tattoo shop to the left, it hasn’t been painted since the Rodney King Riots!

    It still blows my mind that these idiots would tear up their own neighborhood.. Ignorant thugs.

    At least they didn’t burn down VIP Records!

    I wish someone would have told me they were going to burn down Super Shops. I could have gone down there and scored some HiPo parts during the looting.

    I just noticed that the line of buildings including the Tattoo Shop, are now being painted.

    Could it because of this blog entry or just coincidence?
