My alternate — and true — version of the and instantly fell in love with the movie (sorry), and also immediately hated it.
It was painting this picturesque landscape of love (and music) and I was buying its idea of love so hard, and also like WHAT THE F ARE YOU TRYING TO SELL ME ON, ? Even sometimes if you have a drive-on pass, the security guard still makes you wait there 15 mins while they call your contact to double check that you’ve actually got a meeting.
There’s a scene in one of the trailers that has Ryan Gosling’s Sebastian walking down a pier and whistling, and at first I was like “oh wow, I should hang out at piers more often to meet guys like THAT,” and then I was like “oh no, that is a recipe for DISASTER.” Sebastian claims he got by the security gate at Warner Bros. On top of that, considering many guys don’t want to drive 10 mins out of their way down The 5, it’s highly unlikely that someone will go out of their way to drive to a studio lot, and then break onto the studio lot. And, don’t even get me started on the non-existent coffee shop that Mia works at on the Warner Bros. From my extensive knowledge of the Warner Bros lot — and the layout of the set — this coffee shop was like, diagonal from Luke’s and next to Miss Patty’s, which Mia and Sebastian then walk by on their stroll around the lot. One of the best song and dance numbers happens during a stroll up to Griffith Observatory, which is completely deserted.
IDK if you’ve ever been to Griffith Observatory but it is never NOT packed. Last time I was there, it was just a regular Thursday and I had to park close to a mile away, and I got lucky.
We have bought our first home, are getting married in June and trying for a family!!
But for the most part, we’re a bunch of Non-Specials constantly looking for a higher paying job and as “normal” a life as LA could provide.
opens with a song called “Another Day Of Sun,” and it’s funny, because it’s kinda directly making fun of the fact that Los Angeles is bathed in sunlight basically every single day of the year.
And then the movie takes a very harsh turn and starts making fun of something else in Los Angeles: Dating.
The world’s first all-Disney dating website launched this morning.
is the brainchild of Dave Tavres, a self-proclaimed “software geek” from Culver City, and it caters to those obsessed with all things Disney.
When I first moved to Los Angeles, I often thought to myself “dang, everything I’ve ever heard about this city is actually true.” The good stuff and most definitely the bad stuff, too.
