Monday, December 31, 2007 New Years Eve

New Years Eve in Hollywood and you begin to wonder what the New Year will bring. You could visit a psychic. They're all over.  You could visit what we call the "Freeway Psychic" just off the 10 Freeway, La Cienega at Cadillac (really), next to the giant Kaiser hospital.  Fate hangs in the balance at that hospital. It's a good location.

Odd that on New Years Eve the place is locked tight double locks, security bars, the electronic alarm activated. Maybe these people do know something.  The red bow is a nice touch.

Just down the street at "Widget Post" a post-production house that specializes in sound (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, King Kong, Syriana and so on) the Dali Lama looks down on the New Year.  He offers no advice.
