The 60's, 70's, and 90's exist in a peaceful convergence of realities in these streets. Sitting in one of the coffee houses, the visitor is like to enjoy the company of aging hipsters, beat poets, rich kids out on the town, young bohemians in dreadlocks, smartly dressed dot-commers, buff surfers, and old-family gentry in equal measure.
Hmm. It looks like Flowers won't look out of place here at all, and neither will Creation.
Like many bastions of liberal free-thinking and populist idealogies, Santa Cruz somehow fails to be truly diverse itself: you won't find many Hispanic, African-Americans, or Republicans here.
Uh oh. Too much agreement, is there? This is a job for Factions! :)
If Republicans are rare, I wonder about Libertarians... or Anarchists. Hmmm.
At least Ellen will get lots of people to argue with..
SC also has a National Marine Wildlife Facility, and whale-watching is a popular pastime at the beaches. Hmm.... maybe there /is/ some use for Seraphim of Animals after all. *checks to see if Seraph of Animals includes mammals like whales and dolphins* Yup, it says 'amphibious and marine life'. Heehee. Given how rarely Seraphim of Jordi /ever/ come into play, I think we ought to have one, just for fun. How about a nice Seraphic 'Flipper'?
Everyone loves the king of the sea,
Ever so kind and gentle is he,
Tricks he will do when children appear,
And how they laugh when he’s near!
They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,
No-one you see, is smarter than he,
And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
Flying there-under, under the sea!
A talking New Age dolphin would be soooo California, wouldn't it? He could be oh-so-preachy and ecologically-correct in his high-pitched, squeally voice, warning those foolish Humans to respect the Earth, or else (Sorry, but that's how I imagine Seraphim of Jordi. Very dogmatic, eco-puritan and annoying. And worse, the dumb thing would look cute.)
What's more, you can't lie in Sonar...
