Eric Estrada?
 
2009-11-20 11:20:42 AM  
Let me be the first to guess John Belushi or Richard Pryor.
 
2009-11-20 11:20:48 AM  
Hugh Grant or Eddie Murphy, perhaps?

Rue McClanahan.

Ooooh. An interesting one! As a Midwesterner, that looks like LA to me.

It's Melrose and Vine

727 North Vine St. Los Angeles, CA 90038

Rotten Crotchfruit: Lindsay Lohan

The question was for cocaine possession, not demonic possession.

benjordan: well there is a starbucks and a shell station. shouldn't be too hard to narrow it down?

At least it's a shell station and not another starbucks. Pretty much all we have to do is identify a place where there is only one starbucks at an intersection and that should be it...

Gotta go with Bonaduci.

Hugh Grant?
 
2009-11-20 11:30:27 AM  
That's the address for the nearby Panda Express. Look it up in GSV and turn around. It's a shopping center called Pavilions.

Calling either Busey or a Baldwin

/tried to cheat and checked some gossip blogs. Nothing.

The Hollywood sign in the background tipped me off.

He only does blow in restrooms.

There is nothing exceptional about that location, what is the point of this? It could be anybody.

The building shown is the Pavilions grocery store (Safeway) on the corner of Melrose and Vine as others have noted. I shop there all the time and recognized the place immediately - much to my surprise. The other 3 "corners" feature a gas station and two small strip mall type setups. It's just a few blocks from some famous older apartment buildings which housed many of the big name stars of yesteryear.

Yes, it is.

Perhaps Artie Lange's memory is a bit off as to the street name?

Except that West Los Angeles was a desert before we built the aqueduct and developed the land.

Jimmy Smith of the JAX Jaguar's is hardly a celebrity. :)

Reaganomics my ass. It's the result of 100 years of the American way of industrialism, and it would look the same if Ronald Reagan had never been born. Why does everyone seek scapegoats for collective guilt?

It's the Pavilions market at Melrose and Vine in Hollywood.

Read the farkin' article... it's for cocaine possession.

/or maybe it's the site where that allegedly crazy right-wing talk show guy allegedly raped and killed an alleged teenaged girl

Dang, I was able to find the intersection in google earth using the location of the hollywood sign. Neato.

Because collective guilt means even I, and things I love are part of the problem - and that hurts my ego. So scapegoat it is. I blame Canada, of course.
