Wednesday, August 6, 2008 It Gets Even Darker

Museum of Death, Hollywood Boulevard

After forty years, The Mastering Lab up on Hollywood Boulevard closed where many a hit record was mixed. That was in April. In July, The Museum of Death moved in. They had been looking for more space.  If you want to see a baseball signed by Charles Manson and a yarn doll he constructed, drop by. That's not the half of it. Hollywood gets darker and darker.
