So, I just had this very cool guy, Mike, come and surf my couch in LA. He’s a busker who hitched out to LA from Austin and is traveling around california and the southwest, playing music in the street to earn enough money to keep going. He does this awesome kind of music that’s completely acapella– he sings into an electronic looper and makes his own beats and basslines, and then sings over that. It’s all improvised, and it’s all very good. We went down into Hollywood last night and Mike sang and I took pictures and told passers-by that I was hired muscle. It was excellent. Meeting people like this is exactly why I’m into couchsurfing.
