Monday, December 8, 2008 Forbidden City

Hollywood on a dark and bitter Monday in December, and being a bit forbidding, as you see

The guys at the base of the Capitol Records Building on Vine are looking pretty sinister ("Hollywood Jazz: 1945-1972" - Richard Wyatt)

Down at street at the "adult theater" with the live dancers the neon woman in the window is looking a bit forbidding too
