[Editor's note: Today begins Odd Future member Lionel Boyce's weekly column, about his and his collective's life and times. In this installment he introduces himself and talks about Odd Future's pilot, Loiter Squad, which was just picked up for a 2012 premiere by Adult Swim.]

"I don't stop at stop signs, I relax." Even though you probably weren't wondering, yes, I made that quote up. Being a professional quote maker-upper is just one of my many jobs. I also am a secret agent and a lawn mower inspector.

There are a couple of things that you should know about me. First off, I have a problem with making up absurd lies for no reason at all. Thirdly, I live life on the edge. Second is that I have had sex with roughly 87 percent of the women on this planet. By now I'm sure you're probably thinking I am the coolest human walking this Earth. It's now the right time to let you know a little more about me.

My name is Lionel, but I prefer being called L-Boy. It is a cool nickname I made up for myself during my senior year of high school, because I thought it would give me more of a thug rep around the school, which it didn't.

I am a 6-foot-3-inch, 220-pound black guy, given my own column in LA Weekly to talk about whatever the fuck I want. I think it's kind of cool. I was born in Antarctica, and raised out here in Los Angeles. I am a part of Odd Future, which is known to the world as just a rap group right now, but that will be changing soon. We can do anything, whether it be drawing, cooking or smoking crack. We can do it all.

Where I tie into all of this is on the acting end of things. Taco, Jasper Dolphin, Tyler and I filmed a pilot for our own TV show on Adult Swim earlier this summer. What's really cool is we also were a major part of the creative side. We did the writing for most of the skits, and Tyler handled the music for the most part. Dickhouse, the company that filmed Jackass, did all of the filming for us, and we would spend the entire day going around different areas of Los Angeles.

    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
