LAFD Rocks It Again!

I just want to take a moment to exploit this public forum to send out some very personal gratitude to the LAFD's emergency responders.

Thankfully, it was only water spurting out under high pressure this morning and not blood, but the intrepid (and so handsome!) dudes appeared in a jiffy and had the situation under control in short order.

Did I mention they were gorgeous? And that after battling the water I looked like a drowned rat?

Oh and before you downgrade my IQ by 50 points you should know that They couldn't find the water shutoff to the house either.

In fact, now that daylight is upon us and calm is restored, I'd really like to know where that shutoff is....

(and PS, kids: if you're gonna sleep naked, maybe have some clothes in your handy emergency kit. Just sayin.)

WTF - Grauman's Chinese getting sold to developers???

[Sorry, too angry to dig for a CC photo]

I realize the world will end anyway on May 21st, but The Hollywood Reporter is, well, reporting that Grauman's Chinese Theater is being sold and we should Expect Some Changes once their deal closes on May 20th.

Bull SHIT, sez me!

There's a Facebook page to save it but everybody knows what that's worth.

I'm not completely clear if they're only getting the Mann Chinese 6 at Hollywood and Highland, or if the rumor that the developers are "considering turning the theater, which has 1,152 seats, into a nightclub," is anything more than that, but still.

Really? The Chinese Theater? It's not IT enough for you?

The Chinese is on all the historic registries, but developers (and Samaha in particular) are notorious for moving forward with their nefarious agendas and hoping no one will notice until it's too late (Yes I Mean You out there bulldozing Johnnie's Broiler).

Let's not let this get swept under the rug, Angelenos!

What the hell are they putting in the water at the Grammys?

Serene Branson - what? - speaking in tongues? Abducted by aliens?

Or am I just having a heavy birtation tonight?

This is post-Grammy news coverage on LA's CBS News. The news dudes made no comment ~ and sincere apologies for the crummy sound but I shot this off the tv with my iPhone.
