TWISTED SISTA

By cynthia1, published on Feb 19, 2007

...that moment, I knew I wanted to be a part of the music industry." Born in the Caribbean, Lunden's family moved to South Carolina at an early age. While in high school, she saved $200 by flipping burgers at Burger King and when the time was right, jumped on the Grey Hound bus and headed for Hollywood. " Kids hated me in high school and I wanted to get as far away from that town as possible," claims De'Leon. " I spent three long days on the Greyhound bus and as soon as I landed in Hollywood the freaks came out. One guy, I'm sure he was a pimp, told me 'they kill black people in Hollywood, ... (more)

Child Stars to be Played by Dwarves Say Hwd. Execs.

By Limoge, published on Feb 18, 2007

To: All Young Hollywood Stars and Starlets From: Hollywood Producers, Agents and Executives In light of the recent meltdown of some of today’s must beloved child stars, (i.e, Lindsay Lohan, the Olsen Twins, Britney Shears (oops, Spears) we have banded together and decided that from this day forward all child stars will be portrayed by middle aged dwarves. We do this not as punishment, but on the contrary we are doing this to save America’s talented, and in some cases not so talented youth (sorry Corey Haim) from lives of debauchery and mental breakdowns. We believe that middle aged dwarves... (more)

I'm Holdin' out for a Backlash!

By C. Reagan, published on Feb 17, 2007

It seems with each hour in Hollywood, a new feud, cat-fight, addiction or “immoral act” is revealed and broadcast to the masses in a matter of seconds. These days, it’s easier than ever to stay up-to-date on what hottest gossip is rocking the movers and shakers of the entertainment world. Gossip blogs, YouTube, Television News, gossip magazines, Tabloid T.V., talk shows, newspapers and, yes, still even the old stand-by: word of mouth have made it virtually impossible for any “It” girl to have a drink without the media demanding her to check into rehab. Of course, this is all old news.... (more)

You call yourself a writer?!

By DarleneRH, published on Feb 8, 2007

...know? Do you have a degree in graphic design or just freelance? Are you signed with an agency? The questions are always different, but point to the same overall query: When are you "official" enough, to say you are what you are passionate about? If your creativity doesn't pay the bills, or Hollywood hasn't heard of you just yet, are you not actually what you're striving to be? A college professor of mine told me once: "You write, therefore you are a writer." Many folks would argue that not even a degree in writing makes you a writer; you have to be officially published and establish a... (more)

A Look Back at the History of Screenland

By Josh Marks, published on Feb 5, 2007

...the 1930s and the original Yellow Brick Road is still located in one of the stages on the studio lot. Since 1990 the original MGM Studios has been home to Sony Pictures. Ince’s historic Culver Studios, now owned by Sony, churned out some of the most memorable movies in the history of Hollywood. The Culver Studios mansion was modeled after George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate and was featured in the credits of “Gone With the Wind,” which was shot on stages 11 and 12 in 1939. Over the years, sets were made to look like Jerusalem in “The King of... (more)

I Want To Be A Hollywood Wife

By Limoge, published on Feb 3, 2007

...executive assistant with lots of friends and a loving family. But at night I dream of a life a little more, shall we say, "glamorous". No, I don't want to be an actress, a model or even a rock star with male groupies who look like Russell Crowe (well, maybe). No, my dream is to be...a Hollywood Wife! Now, why you may ask, would a woman like me dream of giving up all I have for something so shallow, so pretentious, so frivolous? Well, all my life I've been absolutely fascinated with Hollywood. Everything from how movies get made to (yes, even the "dishy" stuff) who's sleeping with... (more)

In 1953, She was the most famous woman in the world

By Steven Lane, published on Jan 28, 2007

...of facts known and unknown. “The play is “Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feeling So Sad”; Christine has been touring the country in the lead as the wonderful Madame Rosepettle. Did you know that Rosalind Russell played the role in the Hollywood movie version? They look a lot alike, don’t you think? The critics just adore Christine’s performance and in the proper venue, with the right publicity the play should shoot straight to the heavens!” Suddenly, once again, Ramon suddenly went silent as he looked at me... (more)

The Day of the Locust: Apocalypse in L.A.

By Matt Weston, published on Jan 27, 2007

...as saying, "it goes to show that our food supply is not guaranteed by any means." Sound like the sensational hook of dime-store pulp novel? Not quite. For Angelenos, End Times are these times. We live precariously, knowing we are but a discarded cigarette away from utter devastation. Hollywood tapped into - and capitalized on - this part of our nature long ago. From zap-happy aliens laying waste to the U.S. Bank Tower in "Independence Day," to Kurt Russell's post-nuclear eye-patch in "Escape from L.A.," Los Angeles has died hundreds of fictional deaths. In light of the cold snap ... (more)

The Urban Coyote: The true Hollywood story!

By E Jo, published on Jan 26, 2007

...and that they choose one mate for life. I’ve heard coyotes howling in the distance and have seen them in desert areas of Arizona and New Mexico but I never expected to see one in the middle of a city in California. Recently, more than 30 sightings of coyotes have occurred in the Hollywood area near the intersection of Fairfax and Hollywood Blvd. This is a pretty affluent area; then again it is not far from Runyon Canyon Park. It wouldn’t be too strange to see a coyote here, unlike “Hal” the curious coyote found in Manhattan’s Central Park in 2006.... (more)

Wild in the City

By Kantanquer, published on Jan 22, 2007

Tucked away at the very top of Beachwood Drive is a box canyon. Nestled in among the rocks and plateaus is a small ranch called the Sunset Stables. It’s been there for years and hosted many a tourist and Angelino alike on a spectacular trail ride over the Hollywood hills into the flats of Burbank. Sunset Ranch as it is also known, is a working dude ranch. At any one time there are up to a dozen trail horses for rent. Their territory is exclusively the bridal paths of Griffith Park - which remains the largest urban park within the confines of any American city. It is a little touch of... (more)
