They come in two varieties; annoying and poignant. The most annoying are the manic street preachers. But the guy on roller blades with the guitar on Venice Beach is a real jerk. There are some who defend him, but I find him to be ultra-annoying, unfunny and untalented. (But he still deserves healthcare).
The most poignant are the talented ones, or the ones (like children and animals) who are forced to dance for the spare change of passers-bye. The first video is one of my favorites, but I’ve never seen the guy again. Next time, I’ll treat you to a couple of street preachers. One is from the Tony Alamo crowd (shudder) and the other drives a tour bus. He just preaches on the corner of Hollywood and Highland part-time. Don’t worry, you’ll be meeting him soon enough.
But then their are the ones who make you wonder.
