East Oakland can be a tough place, and so the Ice Cream Man must also be tough! A slot-mag-equipped Whiting truck, with broken windows and hand-scrawled ads for $1.00 root beer floats… might as well call it the Boogie Man!

Sadly, the Boogie Man- who appears to have bought his truck from "Healthy Ice Cream"- wasn't playing the traditional tinkly ice-cream-truck music on the PA, so I didn't get a chance to hear Venom's One Thousand Days In Sodom played on the synth-glockenspiel. I shot these photos just down the street from the site of the legendary Danger Bus Rampage.
