Star Wars Inspired Lightsaber Battle Sets A World Record

Star Wars Inspired Lightsaber Battle took place in downtown Los Angeles Friday night when thousands of Star Wars fans in costume gathered battle it out and in the mean time set a world record. It started around 9:OO p.m. in downtown LA’s Pershing Square (532 S Olive St. Los Angeles, CA 90013). Yes this is the battle that you will see in other cities like San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and due to it’s success many more to come.
I felt like I was at the live Star Wars The Force Awakens movie. This was organized by a company called New Mind Space, yet the actual Star Wars fans who came out in drones to participate were the main attraction.

CVS CLOWN VENICE BEACH

Venice, California, walking down the ocean promenade is half the fun, as there is so much more to see if you walk east. Main Street has the Clown in a Dress, nicknamed “Ballerina Clown” or “Clownerina.” It’s a ballerina clown in a dress, wearing over-sized white gloves and a red-nosed clown face. It is a Jonathan Borofsky’s creation made in 1989, it’s 30 feet tall above the CVS.

The rumor is there is an electric motor that makes the right leg execute a slow kick forward. It was turned off in 1990 as building tenants complained that it was too noisy. It was restored in 2014, and now the CVS Clown in Venice Beach kicks between 1pm and 6pm daily. Stop by it makes a great video and most people have not seen the clown in action.
