Go – The Chemical Brothers

Posted: 07/02/2015 by goodie in Music

A new song by The Chemical Brothers featuring Q-Tip. I’m pumping you up for the big 4th of July weekend!

Here is another vintage Newport Beach image from my collection. It features what appears to be the American Legion’s boat-car and most likely dates back to the earlier days of the Legion in the mid 30’s to 40’s. I wish I had this vehicle to cruise around in for the 4th of July this weekend. Wonder if this vehicle/boat still exists to this day?

There is so much construction going on in Newport Beach it is crazy. This is just one of the many projects underway. You see the open area of bay front property, well that massive piece of land is being transformed into about 30 residences, 35000 square feet of commercial and retail space and an underground parking garage.

I was at the Wedge early this morning to check out the extra large surf. News crews were doing their live broadcasts, the beach was lined with spectators and drones hoovered in the sky. Inside of the harbor was pumping as well.
