Steven Spielberg's Parking Space

Flaneuring around the grounds between West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, I found Steven Spielberg's parking spot.

Téa Leoni - Street Advertising in Hollywood or A Secret Meeting Place?

Travelling south of Vine Street today, I chanced past this and snapped a few photos. 

Téa Leoni - Advert for Madam Secretary

Flag Above the Musician's Union - Partial Patio of the Oinkster

I suspect that this is not a tour bus and why the production company would have the personnel, maybe including Ms. Leoni at the Oinkster restaurant is inexplicable. Stars of shows don't have lunch with production staff. At least the Stars do not travel in such vehicles to go to lunch. But I could be mistaken.

I first saw Téa Leoni in a show called The Naked Truth and thought she was both comic and sexy. This has not changed and while I have not seen the Madam Secretary, and it appears to be a drama, she is easy enough on the eyes, that I'll watch the show even if it is a drama. Madam Secretary has Bebe Neuwirth in it as well. Both of these ladies have voices (the sound of their voices) that I find intriguing.

Along Santa Monica Blvd. Near Vine Street

Teenage Mutant iPhone from Beverly Hills

The Sunset-Vine Tower had an odd advertisement today. It's either a Mutant iPhone or an Apple Turtle teenager? Suggestions anyone?

Cast In An Envelope

The newspaper arrived this morning. The entertainment section, called The Envelope, here in Hollywood, after the phrase: "The envelope, please." actually came in an envelope.

Here is what the outside of the envelope had printed on it:

Almost a Grand Opening

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf branch at the Sunset Media Center building has been nicely remodeled. There are plenty of places to sit outside, finally. There is even shade for some seating as you can see by the umbrellas. Sit along the east side if the traffic noise along Sunset Blvd. is too much for you. The Grand Re-Opening however, was not supported by Celebrities or Paparazzi.

Here is photographic proof:

Six Balloons

Six More Balloons
That's it, folks. Even the CBTL didn't care about the Re-Grand-Opening.

On another note, the new owner of this building had the exterior re-modeled. They paid about $75 million for 23 stories or about $3 million per story. That's a 322,000-square-foot building. The owner paid $233 per square foot. On an annualized basis that is $19 per square foot. They rental agent is asking between $3.75 to $4.00 per square foot per month. There is but about 51,000 square feet available for rent.

This office building is the home of Nielsen Research, the TV ratings company. In former times it was also the headquarters of the House of Blues.

If you visit Los Angeles and are tired of Starbuck's, try the Coffee Bean.
