Venice Flea'd Boardwalk sells commercial junk, once again, forever ? (tags)
Venice Boardwalk has a new ordinance that went into effect, was momentarily enforced by the LAPD, and has deteriorated back to what is was for too long = a junky cheap flea market, Since the very same vendors - that were made to not sell non-art which is now illegal, but they have brazenly returned ... to sell their re-sale mdse. to look-like-crafts-or-not- even-pretend-art and get away with what they did before...illegally but loopholed as long as they are not caught in the act of selling the stuff... art be damned...barely exists here. Rules and ordinances can be ignored. Bullying and being sly is what makes Venice work. How Sad, ugly, a loss for Venice.

Venice Boardwalk ordinance draft looks like it's going to fail it's duties (tags)
Venice Boardwalk has been a big loss to the City- how it is seen by Los Angeles' tourist crowds, and to LA's own image as an artistic or art-supportive environment. Commercial vending of cheap re-sale-mdse. bought at any local wholesaler while using City sidewalk free spaces ruins any art scene. City Council doing a draft that looks bad so far.

SUMMER OF FREE SPEECH ON VENICE BEACH (tags)
Rumor has it that this summer has officially been declared the "SUMMER OF FREE SPEECH" on Venice Beach. Why? Perhaps because the L.A. City Council's new LAMC 42.15 ordinance pushes the envelope on 1st Amendment vile-ations perpetrated by themselves with the help of the City Attorney's office.
