What the fuck traffic man! And what is with all these campers on the side of the road? Ate a veggie lunch at the Hsi Lai Temple with some chill ass monks and might walk over to pinks for a dog later.

if in the area of 3rd and Fairfax, there's a place called The Grove (shops, movie theatre, farmers market) that's semi-popular... I saw occasional celebs there
...and saw hobos not far north at Beverly and Fairfax

B-listers... w/ hopefully more sanity than James Woods...

-Diedrich Bader (various comedy things)
-David Spade (SNL)
-Mary McDonnell (Battlestar Galactica)

but i only was at the Grove a few times a year & didn't sit around staring at people, so not too bad for them just happening to pass by me :p

Venice Beach is known for weirdos... i didn't ever go, but if you like weirdos, could be interesting

or there's the horrible costumed characters on Hollywood Blvd w/ such reviews as:

"I had the worst experience EVERRRR~!~~!~! I will never come back to Hollywood because of these freaky deaky characters; I have never felt more harassed and violated, and afraid in my entire life. You can't even pay me a hunnid bucks to go back here. GROSSSSS!"

So have you seen any celebrity hobos yet, McKobb? Like Dirty Mike and the Boys?

Oh btw, I looked up Mary McDonnell after your post, tw, and I only just realized that the mom from Donnie Darko (from where I most recognize her) was also "Stands with a Fist" from "Dances with Wolves" — I've seen Donnie Darko a bunch of times and had never put that together before :p

like i had no association w/ the Negan actor, but then noticed he was the Comedian in Watchmen when i re-watched that

No celebs of any sort unless you count some black dude pushing a CD that has not been released to the general public in front of the Chinese theatre. I did eat at an Ethiopian restaurant on Pico which was damn good. Also hit up the tar pits and some museums.

I did hang out at venice some. I read some parts at a screen writers workshop with my bro. One is called "Christmas in the K-hole" mixing real shots and claymation by some Canadian dude. My brother had us read the lead in to his dystopian near future fantasy/sci-fi, and some chick is working on a comedy about the competition of pre-k enrollment in LA based on her real exp.

I thought it didn't rain in LA? It's been precipitatin since 0630! I did find some excellent falafel in Burbank. The godawful droppings at the Insomnia grill in Auburn ain't worth eating. Come to think about it I haven't had good falafel since Berkeley.

It only rains in L.A. when they’re filming a horror or romance movie I think — do you know which one it was? ;p

"These aint no rain screens"

Don't be so sure! ;p The Truman Show was only cancelled in 1998, and the simulation boundaries have only expanded since then. The rain screens have been placed much higher — now the dome can even contain air travel. Actually, almost all of [future] Arizona Bay is under one giant rain screen.
