Zuma Dogg - L.A. City News Update for 5/12/11

[Pictured: The icon passing time at Ritz-Carlton/Marina Del Rey. As long as you don't have anything to do, it may as well be here.]

Here's where I would normally spend time posting some stuff, but I've found it really isn't worth my time. Go read something else. If you want to see me work, hire me.

I think a decade of trailblazing, out of my own food pocket, is enough for now...witness the legacy at: as a starting point.
If you need to hire me for a paid gig, please be in contact. Otherwise, please don't. Thank you.

* "Zuma Dogg fought the oppressive, tightly controlled L.A. City Council meetings presided over by Council President Garcetti, who had banned video cameras. After security guards tried to stop Zuma Dogg from taping the council deliberations, he railed against the big shots for months, slamming Garcetti as “Garshady” on his show and on the whistleblower blog. “Whatever happened to free speech in this country?,” Zuma Dogg asked. He prevailed against Garcetti’s rules, and now brings his cameracorder to every council meeting, as can any member of the public thanks to him." - LA Weekly.

Zuma Dogg is now retired due to lack of everything and is enjoying his forced retirement life at Santa Monica Beach, where it's so peaceful and beautiful all he can do is avoid reality as he slips further and further out of society.
