Violet Turaco (Musophaga violacea)

Sometimes known as the “violaceous plantain eater” the violet turaco is a species of turaco (Musophagidae), that occurs in west Africa, ranging from Senegal through Nigeria, with an isolated population in Chad and the Central African Republic. Violet turacos are social birds, travelling in large flocks in tropical savannas, wetlands, woodlands and forests. Like other turacos, violet turacos feed mainly on fruits, with an affinity for figs, they will also feed on invertebrates, leaves, buds, and flowers.

Within this concrete jungle I see so many duplicating souls, living as a ghost in another man’s shadow. From your mentality, stance, and adopted trends. You fail to acknowledge you’re burying yourself alive. I want to know who you are. The real you. The you that you don’t even know exist.

Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles

Melrose Ave, Los Angeles is the fashionista’s ultimate dream. If you have never been, I highly suggest you visit. This road is where you can find some of LA’s most unique and funky shops. My favorites include Wasteland, Luck, and American Vintage, all of which you can almost always find something you’ve never seen before. Shopping at any of these stores can guarantee an outfit nobody else you know will ever have. No matter what your style, Melrose has something made for you. And not to mention the restaurants, Pink’s Tacos long line is always worth the wait.

This dude thought it would be cool to take a pic with HHFT at 1520 Sedgwick ave., the birthplace of Hip Hop. It is pretty cool.
