They got me last night. Ticketed for curfew violation. It was marked as infraction, not a misdemeanor. I could have walked away, but I was a couple beers in and gave them shit for physically harassing a skate kid earlier in the day. Oh well.

They told me it's actually legal to sleep on any LA sidewalk until 6am, as long as I'm not blocking doorways or pedestrians and don't have a ton of belongings.

I'm sure someone here has dealt with this before. What was your penalty? I have until Nov, but never intended on staying here that long.

The library is closed today, so I'm overstaying the Coffee Bean for wifi and a pooper.

I could really use a shave and a haircut, though. You may have inspired me.

In answer to your concern: They try to frikkin set me up for skulking; loitering; any number of trumped-up falsified numbskullery...But I go by a thousand aliases. The local people call me ''La Fantoma''. I'm a homeless guy, right? Why would I have ID, or have memorized my ssn?...Psshhh.

Well, I already got a warning in Santa Monica. Now, I'm not very popular with the goons on this end. One of them gave me a friendly warning the other day about smoking a spliff and drinking a beer. Told me to dump it, but drove away, so it didn't go to waste.

I'm typically pretty good at keeping ninja, but I guess there's been a ton of pressure to "take care of" the homeless problem here, so they've gotten more diligent over the years.

It's straight ludicrous. Apparently, it's safer for the community-at-large to allow us dangerous criminals to sleep on the sidewalk in front their house than it is to give us the spacious beaches, even when no one else is using them.

I kind of strongly dislike sleeping on concrete if I can help it. Especially in this place. At least on the beach, you can see what's coming in all directions. Gonna try a couple parks for now, but maybe it's time to move on. We'll see.

Try Topanga or parts north by north east. I do the same thing you do but its like you can sniff out an uptight community sometimes. I love beach sleeping cuz the sand is where its at. Sometimes, as with ocean beach in san fran, its a popular spot for the local guyz. Other times, as in Montauk, Carmel, or Cape Cod, there aint a soul around. :)

Some kids told me about "no man's land," where SM and VB meet. It's apparently a strip that neither jurisdiction can touch. Seemed believable, but I'm done withh beach pigs.

I actually found a better spot, still close to everything: the dog park in Venice is where rubber tramps can park for free. It's kind of out in the open, but is an alright place. Cops rolled by several times and didn't interfere.
I went there after I got booted from the beach. Then, last night, @The Albino Buffalo came down to kick it. We drank beers and slept there. There were definitely some sketchy fuckers lurking around, but that's always real in city parks.
We met trailer tramp "Mr. D" who was a cool-as-fuck OG V13, retired. He stepped to us hard when we walk by, but we quickly showed we were just well-meaning bums.
I like that this guy has my back in that park now.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

This dumpster was amazing;I'd often found throwaways of the big liter bottles they ship syrup with codiene to pharmacies in. Because of the consistency of it there would always be an ounce or two in the bottle they didnt get out. I'd get 2 or 3, spatula scrape out the good, make some szrrrp, put on DJ screw and get faded. :)

I swear this guy is my role model right now. If anyone's gonna ride this out with style, it's him.

This guy with a website called "Rustic Cyberpunk", does computer stuff while living in a cabin in the woods.

You'll need a Tor browser to view his blog, though. I won't link it here because it's not a regular link, and I'm not sure if that's okay on here.
