Thread Box:
Lights Out!
Thread started by PC at 10.7.07 - 11:19 pm

"Everything looks better when the world is black" -- Angry Samoans

So, the word on the street is that October 20 is Lights Out Los Angeles night. Apparently the idea here is that at 8:00 PM, everybody in the city is supposed to turn off all nonessential lighting for one hour. The purpose is not only to save energy, but also to sort of remind people that there is such a thing as a dark night sky, with stars in it and stuff.

I know, I know. Nobody's really going to do it. But a few people may. Does anybody feel like riding up to, oh, let's say Griffith Observatory that night to watch either the stunning darkening of LA's massive light-spangled landscape or the stunning anticlimax of most of the lights staying on? Hmm?

reply


...and if nobody does it, we can always poke poke poke our eyes out!



PC
10.7.07 - 11:21 pm

reply


Hell I do this every night! I burn two 15 watt fluorescent lights for my regular lighting at night. I guess I could turn those off on the 20th too. On going up to Griffith Observatory, just was up there. I could do Signal Hill though. But seeing how this is Saturday night, I seriously doubt you would find me up Signal Hill or for anyone to take this seriously.

So what if you've just been up there? What, there's some law against going up to Griffith Observatory twice in a month? It's a fun ride and this is an excuse to do it.



PC
10.7.07 - 11:53 pm

I don't think i can make this ride. I'm going to still be too tired from the H to EH ride. If there is another Lights out 2 ride, i'll do my best to make it.

Me-
Well yes, it's written in the bylaws of Midnight Ridazz somewhere. Something like, "it is against MR laws and standards of behavior to do a ride to a location two or more times in a period of one calendar month. A violation of the said upon standard will be disbarment from the MR for a period of no less than two years."

I'll see if I can dig it up for ya and get the exact wording later this week!

You really had me going there with the thread title PC.
I thought this was going to be like some type of "infiltration onto prohibited property ride".
One where we had to keep our bike "lights out", so we wouldn't get nabbed by a watch-person or something.

On that note, there were plenty of lights on in Des Moines, IA this early morning, but no one home.

HOLY F**K!!!!!!! BAKERSFIELD HAS BICYCLE RIDERS?!?!?!?!?!?

This I've got to see!!!

I've been reading into the MR bylaws and there maybe a loophole. It doesn't really states it's an infraction if you used two different routes to the same spot in a calendar month. It only states what I posted up there^ ^ ^ I think what I'll do is come in disguise to this just to be safe. 'm thinking a pompous pencil thin mustached French bicycle rider with a striped shirt, scarf, and a baguette in my basket. I'll complain about about how all the American riders are cheaters and couldn't win a thing in a fair, honorable way.

Please don't throw me off the mountain!

Big Bike Dan, if you're reading this, feel free to come to this ride and NOT bring your trailer. We love you for who you are, dude. You don't have to bring the tunes every time.

Does anybody know whether the Fern Dell / Western Canyon route is usable right now, or should we do it the way the hooligans did it?

Please note that on the ride page, I've added a pre-ride gathering at Scoops at 6:00 PM. Obviously, this is optional, so if you don't want to do that or can't make it that early, just be at Scoops by 7:00 PM, because rollout will be prompt. We want to get up there in plenty of time to see the great huge (something? nothing?) at 8:00.

Lights out!

Are you sure people are going to get up there in an hour? I think I might use that hour at Scoops to take my time up the observatory.

Because it wouldn't be an LA bike ride without a cutesy-pie theme, I encourage you all to dress in black, à la Danny, and to mask up with black bandannas if you have them. You know I will. And bring your darkest-colored bike, or at least the darkest-colored bike on which you feel comfortable climbing up to the Observatory.

Also, I'm thinking of putting into practice something that was discussed right here in the forums a few weeks ago (alternatives to beer), and bringing a bunch of delicious boxed wine up there for all to share and enjoy. Votes? Yea? Nay?

A post-ride and post-gathering option to consider: hustling to the start of C.R.A.N.K. mob! It's about thirteen miles from the Observatory to the intersection of Sawtelle and LaGrange. Lights Out LA is from 8:00 to 9:00; Crazy Naptime Killas Mob allegedly rolls out at 10:00. I would personally like to have the opportunity to see Funderstorm before they sell out and all the uncool people start getting into them.

What say you? Yay? Nay? If people would rather stay up on the hill and continue to drink delicious boxed wine, I'm up for that as well. Or, let me hear your bright ideas. Hmm?

the possibility that it may generate some press could possibilty effect the end result ... more people educated about the Lights Out movement and time.

I've kind of had it up to here with the press, to tell you the truth. Does anybody remember that treacherous little weaseltit from the Times who showed up at the Bike Oven on Park(ing) Day, smiling and gladhanding everybody? Then he crawled back into his cubicle and wrote an article portraying the creators of the parks as well-meaning but slightly daffy neohippies trying and failing to connect with the Man On The Street.

Or, to hit it from another angle: I'm interested in getting together with some of my favorite elitist riding buddies and licking some Scoops and riding my bike up a hill, and I'm not terribly interested in framing it as an Event® for media consumption.

P.S. This means you're coming, right, Milla?

PC why ya hatin??

I'll roll with the pack. If they want to meet up with some outlaw bicycle gang, then so be it.

Here's something happening before the ride and fits in perfectly to a nice long day of being blissed-out. And there's no hating in it either! Well all except for this dead animal hanging in this artist piece! I guess that could make some people pissed, but hey we don't know the full story, so don't be hatin, yet. It could be a plastic prop for all we know.

yes many in "the meida" and those who pull their strings are total dickwads. on the otherhand if some total dickwad wrote a dickwad story about a bunch small group of niave neo-hippies that were planning to ride thier bikes up a hill so they could obsereve LA's non participation in a growning national enviromental gesture that will probally have no effect on anything. Would it pique your interest? Would it possibly interest you enough to turn out the lights?


Um yes i think I'll go. everything about it sounds perfect (unless I can't go).

I'm always out there subverting dominant paradigms and shit. I want a day off, dammit! If I feel the old urge coming back, I'll go find some cops to argue with. Other than that, I just want to have the experience, rather than make a display of having the experience.

Come have it with me! The experience, I mean!

Hey PC,

I'm coming to your spectacular ride and was wondering if anyone was planning on heading back to the start afterwards (i wasn't planning on hitting CrankMob). Just did't know if i'd be going it alone. Like, maybe i need one more scoop of icecream after the wine and cheese dealie.

I have no idea, Stevo, but if that's your plan, you have very little chance of getting lost. When we all bomb Vermont on the way down, you just keep going down Vermont instead of turning right at the bottom of the hill. Right on Melrose, right on Heliotrope: Scoops! (Might be closed by then, though.)

Mr. and Mrs. Rollers, if you come with us I promise I will bring finger puppets and we can do "Ridazz: The Puppet Show."

Take the black construction paper and then paint it black. It will be a richer and deeper black. That will show Wolfpack who makes blacker spoke cards.

Actually, the Wolfpack spokecard is made from a far more special material than just plain black construction paper and can only be cut with a certain tool.

But I am sworn to secrecy . . .

First published mention of the Lights Out event I've come across without specifically looking for it. Maybe 6 people will turn off their lights instead of 4 now. Woo, into the darkness!!!

I, too haven't heard a peep about it on the news at all. I'm surprised (or maybe not) that there hasn't been more in the media. Sure you can find out about if you knew it was happening this weekend and went looking but its been marketed as well as Live Earth was in July. Yet i am totally up to speed on Brittany and Kevin's Child Custody battle. Friggin pathetic.

My bet is that if you asked 100 community leaders about this event, you would get 100 responses that would go like this, "huh????"

just go to the corner of melrose and heliotrope you'll find it. It's across the street from the little orange building with all the bikes in front.

Sadly I'm not going to make this ride, it's after five, I just work up, and need t get ready and shit (i.e. eat something and take a shower and whatnot) and I have an hour bus ride (at least, if it shows up on time), to union station, then at least a 15 min ride (maybe more) out to scoops. I will see how long it takes me to get to LA but I doubt I'll make it I'll probably just end up headin out to crank mob, and see y'all there.

Thanks again for setting this up PC.

It was depressing (but not surprising) to see the lack of participation by our city (residents or commercia/Government buildings). What a sad statement it says about us.

We could have been as successful as the original city that started this, Sydney Australia, if only our government, the media (god forbid they pump something positive for a change), etc. gave a shit.

One or two people didn't get spoke cards. Sorry about that. I didn't think people were really going to show up for this, so I only made 25, and was surprised when enough people turned up to claim them all. I didn't even keep one for myself.

Anyway, I do hope you all enjoyed the stunning anticlimax and the delicious boxed wine (which was all the more delicious after the star police teleported out of there and we discreetly resumed service). I did. Hustling to C.R.A.N.K. Mob through the gusty wind was likewise a real kick in the pants.

I want to organize a ride up the hill one of these nights to check out one of the monthly "star parties" that the binoculars guy was telling us about. Any interest? Yay? Nay? Don't say nay.

P.S. G rider, for future reference, you can almost always find any eating establishment in LA by plugging it into Yelp.

Yup, I knew about it. I was checking the Lights Out site periodically, with a view towards organizing another Lights Out ride on the 29th. Once I realized that these lame hippies had given up the ghost in favor of this "Earth Hour" crap that didn't even have any events scheduled in LA, I said the hell with it. Those guys are lucky that I don't have the time to give them the verbal punish-fucking they deserve.
