Prestige v. Illusionist – Prestige wins!
OK, so it wasn’t a landslide, but out of the people that saw The Prestige, they either liked it, or liked it more than The Illusionist. If you haven’t seen them, I really suggest watching The Prestige. I can’t vouch for the other one. 😉

I am completely disgusted with the article that

  posted about Paris Hilton. “Celebrity heiress Paris Hilton is backing an online petition seeking a pardon of her 45-day prison sentence because she enlivens “mundane” lives.” :O It just has no end, does it? I can’t believe that there are people that are so disgustingly superficial and needy that they need to worship and create someone like her.

There is a fire, not sure how much you got to see on your news last night about it. Here, it was the only thing on the news last night. But anyway, yeah, huge brush fire in Griffith Park, and for a while there, it was really scary. Griffith Park is apparently the largest urban park in the nation and a ton of it has burned to the ground. Record heat. Single digit humidity. Just add “high winds” and that will be what we coming to us for most of the year now. Thankfully, winds weren’t up an crazy last night or today, so the amazing fire fighters are doing a great job of getting it contained. They evacuated the LA Zoo yesterday, moved animals indoors, evacuated the Gene Autry Museum, and the residents in the area. And then there’s the Observatory. So close, I was really fearing the worst there. I am so glad it hasn’t gone down.

Sorry, but I really wanted to keep that in my lj. The fire season is getting longer, this is probably just the first in a long series of fires for the year.
