Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

There are small pockets of "affordable" housing around in West LA, and even Beverly Hills, if you know where to look. I live in a "single" for a bit under a thousand a month, and there are a few long term hotels nearby that rent small rooms with shared amenities for less than tha...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

In light of recent events, I don't want to post this on the main Pavilion forum, but I seem to remember Nardhuar bringing up the fact that a good friend of Harlan's (he was a writer or artist -- can't remember the detail) passed away several months previously. This came as a complete surprise to Har...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

ENTROPY FARM! Brilliant! Anyone who knows California geography understands that you have to go out of your way to get to San Francisco. All the north-south interstates pass well to the east of SF, and whenever I head up into Napa/Sonoma territory, I do the ol' 5-580-680-780-shuffle-- not to avoid Sa...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Actually, the Cali coast resembles more the Mediterranean. In fact, our climate here is called "Mediterranean" for its similar seasonal rainfall patterns and flora (short but heavy rainy seasons followed by months without rainfall at all, and plants adapted to the conditions).

Re: Pavilion Discussion

Kudos for the REGURGITATION thread. All of Harlan's Pav posts distilled into one source. Brilliant!

**96% death rate** of the Native American population due to plague, and THAT'S why we came out on top.

Never saw that coming.

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

On a lighter note, anyone here watch the animated series BOB'S BURGERS? Hated this show when it first aired. HATED IT. I can't quantify why I disliked it so much, any more than I can explain why I really dig it now. The things that annoyed me before (an adolescent girl speaking a little too glibly w...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

OK, I'll be the one to break this breaking news: In high school, Mitt Romney bullied a gay student, tackled him and cut his hair. Of course, he doesn't remember the incident, but he felt the need to apologize. But he didn't remember it.... http://news.yahoo.com/romney-abrupt-apology-dumb-high-school...

Re: Sounds of Evil: the Metal Thread

This is about as metal as RUSH gets. New album CLOCKWORK ANGELS coming out next month.

I swear they're getting heavier with age, and I don't just mean musically....;)

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Speaking of Harlan's treehouse on Bushrod, I was in the Bel Air neighborhood once during my census days, and I saw the street. Within about a hundred yards, it peters out into a fire road, which then dead ends over a drop-off down into a canyon. The only place where a tree house could have been is a...

Re: AKA Demonocrites

A hiking guide provides great job satisfaction, but very little in monetary compensation. Unless I'm one of the increasing number of "Ultra-" something-or-others. Ultrarunner, ultramounteverestclimber, etc. Actually, I view my outdoor activities as a (frequent) escape from the madness of t...

Re: Harlan Ellison's Watching.....

Well, that's the last time I trust my local DVD man! Thanks, Ezra; I ordered it.

HARD CONTRACT (1969) is another film Harlan raved about, and all I can find on it is a 1996 VHS release. Let's see what I can find next...

Re: AKA Demonocrites

Trust me; a job is so important. For money and (for some people) self worth and satisfaction, as well. Take it from someone who's underemployed. There's a reason why I haven't been around here as much as I've wanted to these last few years.

Considering the level of Republican candidates in this race, added to an improving economy (3%, which the Libertarian Larry Elder called "anemic" today in an LA Daily News article -- anemic? Really? 3% growth coming out of a serious recession?), and the fact that Obama's opposition continu...

Re: Sounds of Evil: the Metal Thread

Though probably not classified as metal, I can't think of a heavier, more "evil" tune today than this one by PORCUPINE TREE. Think of an illicit liaison between Pink Floyd and Metallica. GRAVITY EYELIDS -- Porcupine Tree http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZwdHEt0nh0 I think Roger Waters has m...
