some of my favorite movies and tv shows were made here like
The Brady Bunch
Mork & Mindy
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Coming to America
The Bad News Bears
Beverly Hills Cop
and endless others
and for some reason i’d never been there.
yesterday someone said that we really needed about 30 to 50 Baby Trombones
and someone else said he thought he saw some at Paramount
no one wanted to go because the place is huge, where would you find them,
and how weird would people think you are if you asked them?
so i volunteered as tribute and it was super hot. and bigger than i thought it would be.
there were bikes and golf carts everywhere. but none said busblog on them. so i walked, and walked and walked.
did i mention how hot it was today?
while it was fascinating walking down the “New York Street”, because im a weirdo,
i liked seeing the empty stages better.
they were giant and they were totally barren inside.
my imagine ran wild.
outside each of the stages they had a little plaque listing all of the movies and tv shows that had been filmed in there.
every stage had an impressive plaque.
i walked past the bungalows with the execs,
i strolled past the writers rooms, editing, costumes, set design
and then i saw it
just sitting there on a loading dock
and just as many as what we were looking for
but i hadnt been there very long so i kept walking around
heres the funny thing
if you live in LA, especially hollywood or the west side, you’re gonna see a celebrity from time to time.
you might even find yourself interacting with them because, you know,
stars, theyre just like us.
i walked around freaking paramount
for maybe two hours
and i didnt see one star.
as far as i know
but heres the funny thing
i turned the corner and there was the kogi truck
and i nearly fainted out of true love.
then i heard gun shots
and i snapped right out of it
but then i saw a sign
so i sat down to chill
it was hot
