My only hope is that out of this story comes a video of somebody trying to explain facebook to Ed Asner, as I imagine it would be comedy gold.

Tell Ed that the theater shows films dedicated to proving that 9/11 was an inside jobby job, he'll drop everything and rush out there.

Been to the Hollywood hundreds of times, often for Rocky Horror.  My buddy used to manage it, and I met my ex there.  It's a great old theater, and I read where they recently restored it.  I wonder if they still have the projector that used to be from a drive-in.  It was a monster, with five-foot platters, and capable of far more brightness than the Hollywood needed.

/Great memories.
// I still have a few frames of Rocky Horror somewhere that were removed when the film broke and it needed splicing.
