Arrival Day


All these thousands of years later, they still celebrate the day that the visitor came down from the stars. As it has been written, he liked their home better than his own. So he stayed.

Walk Of Fame


Another chapter in the "Hollywood Chronicles" saga... six words at a time. It's a cautionary tale that's been depicted in many different forms. One of my favorite versions is by the great Ray Davies. Cue the music:

Everybody's a dreamer
and everybody's a star
And everybody's in showbiz,
it doesn't matter who you are.
And those who are successful
Be always on your guard
Success walks hand in hand with failure
Along Hollywood Boulevard.

-- "Celluloid Heroes", The Kinks

Spirits In The Material World


The average person spends approximately one-third of their life asleep.

That's years and years of your existence here on planet Earth... with your eyes closed.

Just something to think about. Happy Ides of March!

Have You Seen Me?


In every city and town, there a bunch of great pets looking for families. If you're in Los Angeles, please visit the L.A. Animal Services website for animals to adopt. If you live elsewhere, check the nearest pet adoption service near you.

May all the lost find their way home.
