Vlogstyle Episode 07: The Militant Experiences CicLAvia!!!

So CicLAvia finally happened on Sunday. The Militant's utopian wet dream of car-free streets in Los Angeles came true, if only for five hours on 10/10/10. It was a unique day in the city, having been shared this event with some 100,000 others. The day was chill, peaceful, joyful. Never before has he seen so many Angelenos engaged in wondrous displays of leisure. But most important is the social impact. Lots of new friends were made (Facebook as well as real-life), mutual experiences were shared. The Militant was even spotted (probably, he can never conform nor deny any spottings by any of the other participants, but he was definitely out there). Kudos to the people who organized this history-making event. No doubt, this is but the first of many. Los Angeles will never be the same.

So enjoy the Militant's little video of the event. As you can see, it made him react...quite emotionally.

Hey Militant - great video - but what was the name of the artist/song?

Militant Angeleno said...

Anonymous: The song is "Love's Theme" by Barry white and the Love Unlimited Orchestra from 1973. That song greatly influenced disco music as well as the theme song to The Love Boat.

All of the background music used in the Militant Angeleno's videos come from Los Angeles artists! And the legendary Barry White was one of our greatest!
