Sometimes at Ives Park you saw an old dude who performed some kind of slow Tai Chi dance on the outdoor stage there to get attention. The town tries to give the park some class once in a while with Shakespeare in the Park and festivals. After a downtown parade, the Apple Blossom Festival happens in the park each year in celebration of the importance of the apple to Sebastopol's history. Ironically, very few apple products are produced there anymore, but they celebrate their lost industry despite that. The festival can attract outsiders to boost their economy, which brings up the contradictory, anti-progressive nature of the town; people there want the town to stay small and quaint, yet they want to bring in visitors to help their financial woes. Very wacky place. They call themselves Sebastopudlians. Jonathan Swift stuff, man. Despite all the shit I said about Sebastopol, it is an interesting place to stroll around in. It has some funky shops and the local sculptor has his funny junk art everywhere. The people on the street are mostly friendly. The music store is a cool place to try out all kinds of cool instruments.
Rock star: So, what they call the losers here?
Rock star: Get the fuck out! Sebastopol is messed up!
