Onto the sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard. Looking at the stars on the Walk of Fame, and staring at the fingerprints and footprints of celebs, I realized: I love Hollywood.

Plus they also show movies here. One of the few big screens left. Sure the areas seedy with bums and urine smelling streets, cops and beggars but if you come to L.A. and like movi...
