Everybody look what’s going down

Just two days of rain and the town is going insane, but I’m not even going to write about the boy in 204 who’s screaming out the windown some jibberish about the rain and money. You can think that stuff, but do try to keep it to yourself.

Let’s start this post with some lovely footage of the sign. What sign? you may ask. Is there any other? Get outta Hollywood!

I got that lovely footage of the sign on Cosmo Street, where Andy Dick scores cash (and ass?). Listen carefully to the beginning of this video before the truck (and my big mouth) drown out what’s going on in there. However, if you don’t like Andy Dick, then you should probably… get the heck outta Hollywood!

Now we approach a compassionate landlord. Can you believe it? Someone who owns a chunk of Hollywood real estate who hasn’t cashed out for greed (or fear?) One of my favorite buildings in Hollywood, the Fontenoy, is undergoing a facelift. Hooray! I’m sure she will look lovely. The owner didn’t just let if fall into disrepair and then sell it off cheap for on of those mac mansions off Mulholland Drive. Here it is in all it’s glory.

Let’s end with a fabulous example of Los Angeles advertising genius. Lose your mind on these guh-roovey pics!

Wow! That is one big plug! Now I know exactly where to tell the Developers to stick it, the next time I should see them. Or I can just say, “Get outta Hollywood!”

Tomorrow, less amusing Hollywood coverage, as we say good bye to the Burger King on Highland. The King is dead. What (gasp!) will take its place???


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.
