This years fiesta sucked ass !!! It will never be as I remember it when I was a kid, walking around with my parents and sisters getting in lines to get free samples of things we don’t need and taking pictures with celeb look-a-likes. What happened to you Fiesta Broadway ? How did you lose your heart ? Did you even have one to begin with ? I know that the corporate advertising is part of you, but companies use to give out WAY better things. Now, your lucky if you even get a stupid pamphlet telling you to buy some crap you don’t need. Sigh… this years fiesta really was no different than last years and Chavo posted a good photo essay, which was ok I guess. I think mine is better, but I’ll let you’se guys decide. Sigamen los valientes !!!!!!!
I was able to get outta work early and I dediced to pass by to see what this years fiesta would bring. First thing I notice right off the bat is the creepy clown slanging balloons to kids for a dolla. Burn in hell clown !!!!!
I also noticed that this years fiesta had a heavy police presence. More so than last years. In fact, as I was walking toward the fiesta, one of the guys in yellow shirts asked me to open my back pack so he can see what I had inside. I asked him why and he said that last year someone took glass bottles and started fighting with people. My guess is that they got mad from waiting in line for a some toohpaste and felt like he got the short end of the stick.
I have a special bone to pick with Metro this time around. First off what the hell, I can understand the detours on regular bus routes, but the damn drivers don’t bother to stop. You literally have to wave them down to the point that you have to jump in front of them so they can stop and pick you up. I will say that one bus driver was cool and did stopped twice to pick me up and for that I’m greatful, but today was the worst. I was trying to make my way to commerce and the damn rapid buses, which were suppose to make stops on Main st. didn’t. They just zoomed by leaving people to bake in the fucking sun. I myself got fed up with it and skated home instead of dealing with the freaking bus. I made it home arouund the same time the bus did. On a side note, the lady at the booth did hook it up with a cool Metro pin.
After getting a good look at their rides, people were taking pics on those robo-scooters the cops roll around in. The guy in the picture was thinking how sweet it would be to ride one of those to work.
Just like last year the army has its little station signing people up, taking their info and pictures so they can plug it into their database of spam emails and annoying phones calls. This time around they offered people dog tags if they sign up.
