I'd rather say that we came to shut 'em all down
So quick to test bullet yes declare war
Roll and I'll blow when I get the gun for the murder mo' horror
For what the did it all pause for the cause and I
Fin to pull a nine or pistol little nigga wit mine fuck dem

All y'all fall Bizzy gettin bitches test me bless the floor
In any attempt to arrest me stress me lord
Looking at death with the last of my breath
Follow follow my kids but don't sin in my steps
Yet the weapon is kept with the best of my secrets
Deep in the leaves I'm alone nigga believe
That I can see it if needed an if you really want me in
Well let it be and get the greens and be runnnin up over
America's most successful master-planned community. City is comprised of "villages," which are residential areas with common architectural themes, as well as commercial and industrial areas. Irvine Company, which still owns most of the land in the city, likes to say that villages were meant to be "jewels" and University of California, Irvine (UCI) the "pendant"; however, in "Where We Are Now: Notes from Los Angeles," essayist/L.A. Times commentator D.J. Waldie states that villages were also meant to dilute residents' political power and allow the Irvine Company to do as it pleased, "with the compliant oversight of County government." This attempt backfired in 1971, when residents revolted by incorporating the city and taking control of its future. Irvine development now much slower than 35 years ago, under "Master Plan."
Middle to upper-middle class. Excellent public schools, thanks in part to local charitable foundation. City school district receives lowest per-capita funding of any district in California, but donation offset allows schools to maintain extensive art, music, science, and athletics programs. Dedicated and involved parents and district staff ensures academic excellence. Educated population overall. UCI, biotech, and Fortune 500 corporations are major employers.
More liberal than one would believe, thanks to educated population. There is wealth in Irvine but overall mindset is very moderate, very suburban middle class. A diverse city with significant Asian, Middle Eastern, and Jewish populations. However, not many Latinos or Blacks. Irvine is quiet and sedate, because there really is no reason to visit unless you work here, enjoy biking, or are an urban planning major. Huge Great Park planned for northeast Irvine may change that. Getting around the city is pretty easy.
Living in Irvine, or the thought of it, can make some people uncomfortable. There is a sameness, the city is planned to the nth degree, and there is no element of weirdness except for the city itself. On the other hand, there are beautiful views of the Santa Ana mountains to the north and the coastal range to the south, a coastal climate without as much overcast, an excellent bike trail system, lush foliage, practically anything you could need or want either within or near city limits, and a refreshing absence of social problems.
Residents are above-average pleasant and polite, as a general rule. For example, people might drive BMWs but are less likely than residents of neighboring Newport Beach to speed them in and out of traffic on a coke rush while yelling into a cell phone.
Good Japanese, Korean, and Middle Eastern restaurants.
Irvine Spectrum is also called "Irvine Speculum" due to shape of the merged 5 and 405 freeways, which resembles the gynecological implement.
UCI said to also stand for "University of Chinese Invasion" due to high Asian student population.
"In Irvine, you can't even order a pizza after 8 pm."
"Irvine? Where is that?"
The city itself is one of the safest in the nation, because the police here are amazingly anal. You roll a stop sign at two miles an hour, and your ass is grass. They are also have some unbelievable vendetta against Asians, some of whom are from foreign countries and have only been in the U.S. for a few months, or were alive during the Vietnam War era, where seeing a person in a uniform meant that you were usually screwed, and whom panic at the sight of a police officer. The police are so dumb that they don’t recognize this, and arrest the person for not following one of their commands.
Also, the cops really hate teens. I don’t know why this is; they just have some thing against teens, especially drivers. It’s unreal.
Its population of Asians is rising, (which makes the police vendetta toward them a bit more perplexing) which is good, maybe it will get the cops to stop being such assholes towards them.
Nothing happens here. It’s rather amazing really. At 10 PM everyone is inside watching the local news or sleeping. The only things I read about are the marijuana busts, and when ever something big happens most reporters have trouble finding the city. The worst thing that’s happened in the city is the guy who went bonkers at an Albertsons and started attempting to kill people with a samurai sword. Because of the lack of action, the cops are buff. They spend WAY to much time at Bally Total Fitness.
Irvine is home to Irvine Meadows, now Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, a decent place to watch concerts. But, honestly that’s about the only good thing about it.
