Just so you know where we went after work yesterday!
Hollywood by night: a very seedy underworld in a way. Lots of extreme poverty, drugs, drink, people talking to themselves, people yelling, police cars driving by with sirens blaring - but also this amazing wealth and film/glamour world of film. A really weird experience. The picture above is the nearest I think I'll get to Jack Nicholson's 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' character (for you, Sam!) but exciting nevertheless. We had an amazing evening and had delicious Chinese meal in a place in Alex's Lonely Planet, followed by a trip to Amoeba - the biggest record store in LA - have never seen so much music in my life. Second hand CDs for $1, vinyl, cassettes, old posters for $300. It was really amazing - could have spent ages in there and really wished that Sam could have seen it! It was open until 11pm so we stayed for a while and then headed back along Sunset Boulevard to our hotel.
