Colors and Shapes on the Sunset Strip

Late afternoon, Thursday, December 28, 2006 - just things on the Sunset Strip that might catch your eye. A sense of place and all that.

Leering Icons
Topic: Insider Stuff

Leering Icons

On Hollywood Boulevard, between Christmas and New Years, the characters are acting up. This fellow from Sesame Street just isn't paying attention to the right thing.

The Imperial Storm Trooper and Darth Vadar like the lovely young thing. And she enjoys the attention.

After Christmas
Topic: Historic Hollywood

After Christmas

Hollywood and Highland - with all the major stores and the Kodak Theater for the Oscars, and restaurants, from California Pizza Kitchen to the vaguely French Vert run by Wolfgang Puck's brother from Chicago - is the commercial heart of Hollywood. Yes, that's the only kind of heart Hollywood has, of course. The day after Christmas the block was filled with Midwestern tourists, from the Chinese Theater on the west to the seedy bars on the east, to Disney's El Capitan Theater across the street. The Christmas stuff is was all over, although Christmas was all over. The sky was growing quite dark - rain on the way.
