Funeral Service For Jay Adams Saturday August 30th at 9:00 AM North Side of Venice Pier

A funeral service for Jay Adams will be held on the north side of Venice Pier on Saturday August 30th at 9:00 a.m.

Jay Adams died last Thursday while vacationing in Mexico with his family. Unfortunately, the costs involved with claiming and transporting a deceased body from another country are challenging and expensive. It has been reported that the Mexican Government wanted in excess of $10,000 to release the body for transport back to the United States. The Venice Skate Alliance has been raising money through their Facebook page here. They are close to having all the funds but additional donations are needed. You can get the information to contribute here.

It is expected to be a busy holiday weekend on the Saturday planned for the funeral so plan accordingly. To read more about Jay and his recent passing see our original story.

Sailor Jellies Invade The Beach : Santa Monica Pier Aquarium Drops Knowledge On Us!

Seen these nifty sea creatures yet? Santa Monica Pier Aquarium ( a super cool place you should visit ) tweeted us the awesome photo below! They let us know the influx started in San Francisco and has been working its way down the coast and it is finally our lucky turn!

The jellies don’t sting, but they did advise not to touch them and then touch your eye. Good advice that applies to most anything! :)  If you want to know more you can check out the Wikipedia info on them here  or better yet, go to the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium and ask an expert in person!

The Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is Heal the Bay’s public marine-education center located beach-level, just below the Carousel at the world famous Santa Monica Pier.

Piece Of Crap Teenagers Vandalize Historic Gondola

We just can’t have anything nice. In the Windward Circle which is a “No Pedestrian – No Trespass” area, three teenage vandals damaged the historic Gondola & video taped the whole scene. Hopefully they post it so justice (street or otherwise) can be served. A guy that lives in his car watched the whole thing go down. Didn’t call the cops and instead told another guy who told me. Go team. The plants that were put around the Gondola are also all dead thanks to the homeless, that in deciding to “take care” of them, over-watered and poured too many kinds of liquid on them and killed them. Go other team.
