Saturday, March 15, 2008 Crossroads Sun

The Ides of March at the Crossroads of the World, actually just down the street on Sunset Boulevard and as you know, the crossroads of everything has been right there since 1936.  It is an odd place you've seen it in many a film and on an album cover or two.  No, Caesar wasn't stabbed here, changing everything.  It's just offices casting agencies and minor production companies housed in what looks like a miniature ocean liner. And it's all a little shabby after all these years.  But the gardens are nice, and, as a place where everything is supposed to meet, it will do nicely.

It may be the Ides of March, but this is probably not Caesar
