Check out the Spoke(n) Art Ride before Amy Darling’s show:
Join us at the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop and Bike Oven this Saturday, December 8, 2012 for another Spoke(n) Art Ride gallery tour.
Meet at the NELA bike-coffee metroplex located at 3404 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065 at 6 p.m. The ride leaves at 6:30 p.m. We return to the start point at around 10 or 10:30 p.m. for a reception.
The Spoke(n) Art Ride is a monthly tour of galleries open for NELAart’s Second Saturday – a special night when area galleries and studios open their doors to the public until the wee hours.
The ride is a slow-paced cruise, stopping every couple of minutes. Sometimes we veer off the beaten path, sometimes a backyard party – it all changes slightly from month to month. For more general information about the ride, check out the Bike Oven’s Spoke(n) Art page.
We obey major traffic lights on this ride, we are polite to gallery owners and the general public on this ride. This ride is about art, community, the city, conversation, and living the good life without damaging the lives of others. If you want to “get faded” and “mash” – please do go on another bike ride. Seriously, this is Saturday night, you are free to do as you please. Don’t ruin our fun and we won’t ruin yours.
Don’t have a bike? No problem! We rent single speed beach cruisers with blinkie lights for $20. We have a fleet of bikes – just make sure to show up at or before 6 p.m. to ensure you get a bike! Things get hectic at start time, with over 100 riders congregating at the shop before we leave.
There is a Facebook event page for this ride.

This is what a Spoke(n) Art ride looked like once:
“It seems to me it’s a photographer’s duty to try to put an idea into his or her work. In this photo I have tried to express what seems to me one of the strongest proofs that there probably isn’t a god, in which Dawkins believes, namely that ‘the existence of God is a scientific hypothesis like any other.’ It is certainly in the finitely touching expression of a young man, which he himself was conscious of, when he is sat quietly in the corner by the heater. At the same time, there is something humble, something sublunary, which is that he is destined for the worms. This is far from all theology, simply the fact that the poorest little barista or bike messenger can have moments of emotion and inspiration that give him or her a feeling of an eternal home, and of being close to it.”

I found this googling “Dave Nada” and “Los Angeles” hoping to find an upcoming show. Sadly I couldn’t find one.
The seismic effect of Mad Decent’s Blow Your Head: Moombahton on the international underground is a yet untold tale. However, the primal, decadent effects of the party on residents of of Los Angeles is now apparent for all to see as pictures and footage have emerged from the bacchanalian revelry.
Videographer Kystee Clark documents the tropical jungle vibe extremely well, but it’s Los Angeles photographer Mikey Wally that is most graphic. He describes the celebration in bawdy, Caligula-esque prose when he states: “Women were literally exposing their vaginas for extended periods of time. Two of them tried to tear each others clothes off in what looked like a scene from a lesbian BDSM porn. At one point a lady cut her hand while dancing low, so she pulled out the glass, threw it at me, turned to the crowd, and licked the blood before strutting away. Another time when a camera man walked by, a girl let spit drool out of her mouth and then sucked it back up! Disgusting.”

I write paragraphs and paragraphs about photography and I almost always never post them on my website. It’s not as much letting my photos speak for themselves, though I believe in that, as it is being scared of my writing. So instead of me thinking I know what people want to know about I thought I would implore my readers to ask me a question. I don’t care what it’s about. Leave it in the comments or email me or vlog me or tweet or whatever.
A photo story I submitted to the Music Center’s 24/1 program was selected for public sharing on May 20 and 21 at the Music Center Plaza. Here are a few of the street photos I submitted (and a link to the set):
