Tour Guide


I never understood the tour bus thing. Sitting in a bus or mini van and being driven around and have weird stuff pointed out to you. It seems like the biggest tourist activity in Los Angeles is doing just that. I was sitting in front of the Comedy Store on Sunset and bus after bus pulled up. People stared out the window and nodded their heads or snapped a photo. Big deal. There is nothing there. Paulie Shore's mom owns the place and Kramer used some racial epithets there. I can't see spending the day going around and looking at Wayne Newton's old driveway or the house where Paris Hilton's gardener lives. I'd rather be out amongst the people myself, without the protection of a bus window. This way I can see up close and personal just how phony everyone there is.

I'm really enjoying your take on my digs. I must say you haven't been wrong yet.

P.S. One of those tourists on the touristy double decker red bus had their camera pointed in my direction while I was in my car at a light on Sunset. I shot them the one finger salute. I hope hope hope they saw it when they downloaded that bad boy.

I just stumbled onto your site not knowing it had anything to do with Los Angeles and instantly recognized as the Argyle, just a mile from where I live.
