Send in the thugs

They’re already here! Right when I say, “Talk about shoddy construction!” That’s when about half a dozen goons started to mill around me like coyotes on a bunny. I would have taped THEM, but I’m certain that would have earned me an ass-kicking. That’s the last thing I need right now.

And what a ku-razy, CRAZY morning it was! The subconstractor for Shine Construction started spraying concrete on the walls of their nice hole before 7 in the morning. You can bet your stemp and last little piece of rock that I opened my window and gave it to them verbally with both barrels. I’m still in the process of calling this one and that one to complain. But you can complain until the cows come home and still not get any resuts. Obviously this situation requires action.

It’s bad enough that the Developers erect these hideous, overpriced insults to the eye, such as the Hollywood (aka the Hubris).

Just click on the picture to get a better look. Damn! No matter how many time I look at thing, I still can’t believe how hideous it really is- a blight on Yucca Street!

The grey-haired gentleman at the beginning of this video wouldn’t give me his name, or tell me why he was here. When I told him that I could very well be dead before the buidling was done, his response was, “That’s your problem, buddy.”

Guess what stranger, you and your compandre’s have a living, breathing problem now. Me. I’ve already called the Los Angeles Police Department that deals with such issues construction sites and excessive noise, starting work early, etc. THAT number (courtesy of friend in high places) is 213-485-2102.

The next step is to talk to the police at the Wilcox office. I’m supposed to talk to the Beat Supervisor, I believe. The cops of Hollywood are a great bunch of people and whenever I see one of their cars, I take off my hat to them. Job well done!


About Russell Smith

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Natasha, Maxwell, Tigger and Nigel.
