Hollywood Boulevard Cat Fight!

MARILYN_MONROE_CATWOMAN_1

WHAM! POP! BAM! Well, almost. Check out these photos of this Hollywood Boulevard cat fight that almost broke-out between Cat Woman, Marilyn Monroe and some Dude with a camera. Oh, Hollywood. Oh, she would if she could.

Valley Girl and I spent another sleazy afternoon in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater, communing with the darkness of the Boulevard of Broken dreams. As expected, the demons never fail to deliver a little costumed chaos.

While Valley Girl was interviewing a straggly-haired Skull and Bones conspiracy theorist, I happened to catch Cat Woman and Marilyn Monroe almost get into a comic-book style brawl with some “a@#hole” who wouldn’t stop taking their picture. The ladies of Hollywood Blvd. don’t do that unless they get paid, just FYI.

Of course, the dude didn’t want to stop taking photos, so Cat Woman took out her claws and got in his face. There was a lot of meowing, hand-in-the face huffing and puffing business, until Marilyn got involved and actually struck him with her white plastic fan. Yeah, some like it hotter than others.

The cops were called, but the only consequence was my amusement.

Enjoy.

#LAMurderCop Tweets about Death in the City

6mulfk

LAMurderCop is the macabre Twitter handle of  LAPD Homicide Detective Sal LaBarbera. The veteran detective is under investigation for posting photos of a grisly South L.A.  gang-related murder to his Twitter account. Evidently, the blog LA Taco took offense, claiming that LaBarbera demonstrated a “callous” insensitivity towards the victim by posting photos of the crime scene.

And we thought he was just giving us something gory and bizarre to blog about for Halloween.

Detective LeBarbera sees his tweeting in a different light. With currently over 4,000 followers, LaBarbera hopes that he can bring more public awareness to the violent crime that still plagues South Los Angeles.

In a tweet, he explained himself in less than 25 words: “(D)id you ever think 1 pic would get such attention? If I did I would have done sooner. Stop the violence.”

And he’s referring to this kind of violence:

Painting of a Chase branch on fire: $25,000 on eBay.

Being investigated for your paintings by the LAPD, twice: Fucking Priceless.

Surreal L.A. would like to give it up for Alex Schaefer, this month’s anarchic artist.

This painting, part of Schaefer's "Disaster Capitalism" series, went for $25,000 on eBay. Something tells me that Scheafer won't be making that deposit at Chase.

SpongeBob Squarepants was brought down in front to Grauman’s Chinese Theater on Hollywood Boulevard earlier this week for what the Los Angeles Police Department described as a “brief incident with two females.”

The Police offered no other details, so I’m just gonna make them up.

Have YOU Seen the Quween?

Quween on the Scene in her "Funny or Die" commercial

Any connoisseur of celebrity blogs and paparazzi-approved YouTube channels is probably familiar with her. She reigned the streets of Beverly Hills, Calif. circa 2009 – 2010. As a ruler, she was as “of the people” as they come: her throne was a lawn chair, her crown a humble scarf, her glass slippers a pair of worn sneakers. In a city deficient of superheros, Quween was a rare find.
