Why The Actual Artists Keep Fleeing What Once Was The Los Angeles Arts District
I Was Raped By Ronald L. Havner & The Sleazy Corporate Whores @PublicStorage (tags)
Public Storage thoughtlessly and illegally devastated the life of a Los Angeles artist after they wrongfully auctioned off a life time of his photography and art work without blinking an eye, or giving the artist any kind of proper notification, something they legally have to do. What they returned to him was 4 boxes of old paperwork that was literally dumped into old disheveled cardboard boxes. That is what Public Storage considered his "Personal" belongings. The artist straightened them out. And I don't think he's close to being finished. A law suit against Public Storage is being now being prepared and will be filed in the near future.

WHY IS JOSEPH PITRUZZELLI, A DOCUMENTED LIAR AND A HYPOCRITE STILL LARABA'S PRESIDENT? (tags)
The Los Angeles River Artist Business Association is purposely turning a blind eye to their own president's blatant hypocrisy since his arrival in the Los Angeles Arts District. Joseph Pitruzzelli is a blatant hypocrite and must go as LARABA's president. Joseph Pitruzzelli has had no regard or respect for his artist neighbors since his business's rude arrival where he was cited by the city of Los Angeles for the illegal use of an Artist in Residence as a commercial warehouse in the heart of the LA Arts District. A use that has actually driven artists out of the Los Angeles Arts District itself, and the fact that Joseph Pitruzzelli's disruptive and illegal use continues still to date. This is blatant hypocrisy and a slap in the face of the actual artist in the Los Angeles Arts District. Joseph Pitruzzelli must go as the president of the Los Angeles River Artist Association. LARABA can not continue to turn a blind eye to their own president's hypocritical actions.

Court Ruling #BC467840 Now On-Line at:
Long time Arts District Artist David Goldner was the artist next door when Wurstkuche restaurant "invaded" the LA Arts District in 2009 and it's owners Joseph Pitruzzelli & Tyler Wilson disruptively began to illegally use an AIR, a legal Artist in Residence loft, as an illegal 24 hour commercial nightmare of a warehouse for their new restaurant next door, Wurstkuche. As their neighbor, David was apparently subjected to constant torturous 24 hour noise, smoke and non stop 24 hour traffic by Wurstkuche suppliers, employees and the owners themselves who dragged banging beer kegs in and out all day and all night long in what was a creative live / work space for decades in the heart of the Los Angeles Arts District.

Sedition and Popular Media (tags)
Conservative (far right) ‘governments’ – presentation marionettes of Corporate and Financial interests – have unanimously implemented “new sweeping” (slogan) anti-terrorist and sedition laws to constrain or otherwise stifle dissent and opposing ‘views’. Conservatives can always be relied upon to implement the most lacklustre ‘solutions’. In characteristic mode they have all resorted to Legislation in a futile attempt to silence dissenting and protesting ‘voices’. Legislation has always been the refuge of all scoundrel governments and inept politicians. Nevertheless, the popular media remains unaffected by the new laws and continues to demonise, misrepresent, distort and omit details in order to present a ‘tailored reality’ to the public. Circumventing the ‘new sweeping laws’ is child’s play for any journo, analyst, artist or professional media manufacturer/fabulator/fabricator – WHY?
