Planet Hollywood

What could be sadder than a bunch of would be actors, dressed like pirates from Pirates of the Caribbean, complete with a Johnny Depp look-alike, having a fast food dinner at the mall at Hollywood and Highland? This is sadder:

Despite the new mall whose decoration takes its cues from Intolerance by D.W. Grifitth, including gynormous white adobe elephants, Hollywood Blvd, is still kind of grungy. The grunge is not dissappearing as fast as some people would like it to. There is a street performer who does Houdini style tricks, but who looks like a real hobo. There is a guy who wears a halloween mask and a fake machete dripping blood, who just leans against a corner. There are women posing for pictures dressed up as The Little Maiden and Catwoman.
