The view from the top of Runyon Canyon Park. You can easily take this hike when you visit Hollywood.
Living in Hollywood around Oscar season is a colossal pain in the ass. Yeah, there are celebrities everywhere...and they’re the reason you’ve been sitting in traffic for 45 minutes.
Everybody’s working for the weekend. Even Darth. Here he is at quittin’ time.
The ceiling inside Gruman’s Chinese Theatre. (The one with all the handprints in the cement.) They still show movies on their gigantic IMAX screen. It’s a nice escape from the heat too.
During the Oscars, these things are all over the place. I believe this picture was taken when I was working on the Good Morning America Oscar post show (not as glamorous as it sounds).
When people ask which celebrity I’ve been most excited to meet, my standard answer is: The A-Team Van. They usually stop asking questions after that.
It’s a long way from my Ozarks roots...but it’s one hell of an interesting place to call home.
