So there I was motorcycling around La Jolla, California near my home, and I noticed that around forty painted full size imitation cows have now appeared in many downtown locations. I was like "Huh??" LOL, so I went online and found out it's a public art event known as the "Cow Parade" ( http://www.cowparadelajolla.com/about... ). It turns out that "the event has been held in more than 50 cities, on six continents, and has been seen by more than 100 million people."

This type of event REALLY reflects my fun (and my MORE than a little warped) sense of humor, so I thoroughly enjoyed watching the reactions of the pedestrians as they walked by these outdoor works of art. It was such a wonderful, stark contrast to see the brightly colored cows in the midst of a typical ocean side downtown setting, and this art presentation is also a HUGE contrast to the typical venue of an art gallery presenting an art show.

In June, when this particular event is over, there will be post-exhibition auctions, and the proceeds will benefit Rady Children's Hospital and the Zoological Society of San Diego.

The song for the video is one of the official, CHF (copyright hassle free), YouTube AudioSwap music library ones entitled "Beloved" by Angela Easterling. I overlaid the song with audio of a bunch of cows mooing. I haven't personally verified that the audio use of cows mooing is acceptable to the YouTubeCopyrightGods, and to the BCLU (Bovine Civil Liberties Union), but it seems to be a logical deduction that cow moos MIGHT still be immune from copyright infringement issues LOL
