Mulholland Drive, September 7, 2003
In the lower left of the last photograph, if you click on it and
expand it, you can see the turret roof of Chateau Marmont (8221 Sunset Boulevard) - the fake-castle hotel where John
Belushi died of a heroin overdose in 1982. And just beyond that is the side of the Hyatt where all the rock
stars stayed in the seventies - and rode motorcycles in the hallways and generally trashed the place. Ah, my neighborhood.
Far in the distance in Century City, an office complex with tall buildings and an outdoor shopping mall with chic,
expensive stores. That used to be the back lot of 20th Century Fox, but they sold it off for development after
they nearly went under with that Burton-Taylor fiasco Cleopatra. So forty years have passed
since they filmed second-rate westerns there.
But it is blazing hot here today, in the mid-nineties, and there hasn't been a cloud in the
sky for weeks. And it's dry as a bone, with dust drifting into the hills from the Mojave, diffusing the hard
sunlight. Everyone is going slow. The pool is inviting.
And from the home page, September 7, 2003 ...
