Following the previous post about an A bomb explosion it only seems appropriate to talk about my favorite landmark in the city. It’s not the Hollywood sign, it’s not Charlie Tuna’s* star on the Walk of Fame
(yeah a fake fish has a star a reader has pointed out the star is for the radio legend of the same name, not the cartoon spokesfish) and it’s not even the place where I met my wife for the first time. Those are all great places but they aren’t my favorite place.
You can find out what it is after the jump but here’s a hint…it involves a space robot.
My favorite landmark in all of Los Angeles is the Grey Goose Framing store at 1170 S. La Brea; the one with Gort, the robot from The Day The Earth Stood Still, in the window. You can buy a frame at a lot of places but this is the only place where you can see a replica of the greatest robot in movie history; the robot who came to Earth in 1951 to prevent us from blowing ourselves up, by threatening to blow us up.
Space robots are all about tough love.
