Wednesday, April 30, 2008 Out of the Dark

April ends with a cool cloudy day, and those are always odd in Hollywood the usual pop culture things seem suddenly something else entirely, and can make you strangely uncomfortable.  Down on the Sunset Strip, in the quiet parking lot behind Sunset Plaza, you sense something is up.
