Magnetofunky: Walkabout - A 1223Studios Production

On the road, off the grid!

Magnetofunky: Walkabout is a laid back (and often explicit - you bet your ass) personal journal of extremely eclectic music and progressive politics, with a focus on mobile energy independence and creative West Coast wanderlust.

This new show departs from the previous podzine in that I'm leaving the safe confines of a brick and mortar SRO to discover California outside of Los Angeles and San Francisco, attempting to expand my definition of personal freedom on a more or less permanent rent-free bike tour up and down the West Coast...

The mobile power plant I created is a working 100W model Battery Operated Self-Charging System, a modification of a device patented by Carlos F. Benitez 100 years ago. A 1000W system is also possible...

The Open Mic Stage accepts submissions of almost any genre from great bands and artists the world over, whether big name or indie, as long as I like the beat and flow.

"Leave No Trace"

El Gifto Magnifico - The Gift of Gab

Seeing Through Nomad Eyes

You'll find individual and group homeless tents all over the city, squatting for a few weeks until the person inside wears out their welcome or gets raided by the cops, or burns themself out of the spot...    Most of these encampments are former apartment dwellers who would never be confused with a camper outside of a city...    Surreptitious shot of what could be a floating bike chop shop between locations, usually found under the freeway or a secluded back alley...

Open Mic Stage: Bay Area Punk, Rock and Hip Hop

Torn Apart - Amongst Thieves    Immigrant - Sporting Life    Make Way - Global Affront


With a regular tray as a base, the batteries just manage to fit, leaving room for eye screws into the 1x2 inch furring strips underneath. The ventilation holes will have to go in the back corners...    A rough match up of the tote and tray...
