Tuesday, December 9, 2008 To the Sea

Living in the middle of Hollywood, with all the surreal craziness, can be exhilarating, and unnerving. But the Pacific is a short drive away. That'll clear your head. Just drive down to Playa Del Rey. It's not that far away.

An Australian flag?

Don't get too detached from the gritty everyday world. That's an oil tanker just to the south, offloading Alaskan crude for the big Chevron refinery in El Segundo.

And don't get too detached from Hollywood. Paramount is filming something or other here today.  No wonder the streets were filled with production trucks and there were limos and cops everywhere, and not much parking just like Hollywood.
