(Authentic) POWERFUL PEOPLE "Truly" Serve Others WELL!
Attention HOLLYWOOD & Las Vegas Street Performers
The video link at the bottom is a MUST watch and a MUST "Share" on your Facebook wall.
It really ticks me off when I, along with the tons of other serious Street Performers, put so much love, time, energy, passion and, not to mention, money into our costumes and performance only to have some low life idiots go throw on a cheap, crappy costume and then strong arm the tourists into taking photos and then demanding money.
Don't get me wrong, I know some folks can't afford a great looking costume when first starting out (myself included, in fact, I looked hysterical in the beginning, that's an hour long blog in itself) but they should sock their tips away and save up to improve their costumes when they can afford to.
Also, they should never, EVER grab a tourist, demand a tip or suggest a set amount, or in ANY way come off aggressive or threatening, this is totally against the law and it makes us all look like crooks and thieves and I know that myself and the majority of the Street Performers I have ever met are not crooks and thieves. In fact we are entertainers first and foremost. We are ambassadors of our cities to visitors from all around the globe. To those of you Street Performers who truely are at heart, this goes without saying. To those of you that are not... get off of our blocks, you are not welcome here in LA nor in Las Vegas... 'nuff said!
