Hollywood, CA
The Frankie Goes To Hollywood convention took place at the historical Roosevelt Hotel in the heart of Hollywood California. I spent some time walking around and taking pictures of the area...


The Roosevelt Hotel Exterior
 
The Roosevelt Hotel Lobby Interior


The view from the window of my room, featuring downtown L.A. and the Galaxy Theater where the Rocky Horror Saturday movie showing took place

 
The Galaxy Theater at night...
 


Paper airplanes as tossed from the hotel windows...


This is the atrium of the Hollywood McDonald's


The Church of Scientology has several buildings/locations in the Hollywood area...


The Egyptian Theater

 
Let this be a lesson to civic planners. Trees don't stay as cute little 10 foot tall shrubs forever. They eventually grow and block the name of business establishments.

  
I took a lot of shots of this aerial - I found it intriguing in a retro kind of way...


Frederick's of Hollywood in Hollywood.

Mann's Chinese Theater Hollywood
  
Of course, Mann's claim to fame is the footprints and hands in the cement in front of the theater

The Original Star Trek Crew & C3P0, R2-D2, and Darth Vader

 
Jack Nicholson and Arnold Schwarzenegger

  
George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, and The Marx Brothers

 
Susan Sarandon


Sean Connery (and Gremlin finds his Identical Hand Twin)


Mann's at night

  The Hollywood Guinness Museum


Madonna's Panties and Marilyn's Hair

 

Miscellaneous street shots


Ripley's Hollywood

 
 
Some Hollywood Fun Stuff


The poster child for cell phones - THE dirtiest phone in Hollywood.

 
Some Hollywood street art


The famous circular Hollywood Capitol Records Building

       
Miscellaneous shots of the famous Hollywood sign on the hill - this is the closest I came to it all weekend (c'mon, it still IS just some letters on a hill)



The beautiful Pantages Theater


The Hollywood Henry Fonda Theater, however, has seen better days

Stars on The Hollywood Walk of Fame
Shooting the Stars on The Walk is a bit of an "Art" as you will see by the varying degrees of quality and readability of the stars in the pictures here.

The Walk starting point


The first two stars on the walk are Elvis and The Beatles

Midnight Madness' Gremlin in front of The Beatles star (and the Monkees one on the right there).


Yours truly at Gene Roddenberry's star - the only one I cared about enough to get a picture of with me in it.

Gremlin got a shot there too.

Gremlin in front to Groucho Marx's and Alfred Hitchcock's Star

 
This was one of the Really Freaky Coincidental ThingsTM that occurred during the weekend of the convention. The actor Carrol O'Connor died on the first day of the con, then on the second day music legend John Lee Hooker died. Their stars on the Walk of Fame are right next to each other (that one in the middle is a blank). Thinking there might be some weird kind of cosmic conspiracy going on, we checked the stars before and after theirs to see what happened. One was an actor that had long since passed away (and I can't remember now), the other was Don Johnson, who is still alive and well to this day...


Little known fact, the stars on The Walk Of Fame are privately financed from donors, and are taken care of by volunteers (above) and through donations. Some of the older stars have fallen into a bit of disrepair, like Fay Wray's here...

Some more stars of general random note...

Spanky McFarland (of, the Little Rascals) & The Simpsons
 
Two Wesley's - Willis (of Pop That Pussy fame) and Snipes

Tom Petty, Kenny G ;-P and Pee-Wee
 


...and Marilyn Monroe
