This cheered me greatly.
It's fascinating that the spirit of Diego Rivera, and the herds of skate culture artists are intermingled there. Almost as if the local culture is non-homogeneity. (Yeah, I know, it's SF, but when you say "local culture" at least a little homogeneity is usually in order, or at least implied.)By the way, this video (unlike Persona) actually opens a new window for YouTube. That might be what you intended, but if not, there may be something funny with the embedding code.
Oh! Forgot to say, I recognized a ton of those from artists & works I've seen in Juxtapoz magazine. If you dig this stuff, check it out sometime. It's usually with other art mags, and (last time I saw one, which was more than 6 months ago) not in a sealed wrapper, ie, browsable.
I love Juxtapoz. It's probably the only art magazine that consistenly leaves me slack-jawed. I'm also consistently amazed by the culture in San Francisco- it's amazing how well the variety of different images and symbols intermingled in that video, even though they come from all around the world. Part of it comes from being a port city, I suspect. But I've heard that San Francisco is sort of a magnet for all of the creative people on the West Coast. Once you get old enough, you move there.

Shouting about art and culture from an ivory soapbox in a lonely corner of Mall University. Come on in- the ennui is fine!
