I snapped this awhile back while checking out Storyopolis’s new location on Ventura Blvd (click the link for a full size). I don’t know what the hell anybody is doing selling Satan puppets to kids. Have you ever seen the episode of the Simpson’s where Bart is afraid he’s going to be murdered and after he goes to bed Homer kicks in the door and barges in wearing a hockey mask and wielding a chainsaw and screaming “HEYBARTCHECKOUTMYNEWHOCKEYMASKANDCHAINSAW!!!!!!” and Bart totally freaks out? Well, this is like that, only in real life.
And while we’re on the subject, I’m totally bummed that Storyopolis has moved. I know they’re doing business like gangbusters in their new spot, but I think it’s a huge loss for this side of the hill. There aren’t a lot of quality, family joints around Hollywood as is. I also think they’ve really changed their vibe a lot, but maybe that’s just me.
