Oh, no, don't say this! During my visits to LA I ALWAYS take a bus tour! I love them! The best, the absolute best is the "Dearly Departed - Tragical History Tour of Hollywood".

http://dearlydepartedtours.com/

This tour, in a minibus that seats only 12, is fabulously narrated by the guide/driver and is a great introduction to the Hollywood area. As for the famous deaths, we ranged from up into the hills beneath the Hollywood sign to the various nearby neighborhoods to see the houses where famous stars once lived. Well worth the cost of the tour and our guide/driver was the owner who knows his Hollywood history and has a wonderful sense of humor. About famous deaths. He even pointed out the spot on the sidewalk where Fred Mertz (Willam Frawley) of "I LOve Lucy" dropped dead of a heart attack! (I kid you not.)

And another one I took was the then newly established "TMZ Tour"........ :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

Edited to add: On the "Death Tour" there were some LA natives accompanying their out-of-town relatives on the tour. They were as enthusiastic as we tourists, said they had never taken a tour before and could not believe how much they had learned during this one. It was like, on which other tour would you take a bathroom break at the small park where British rocker George Michael was once arrested for soliciting sex from an undercover police officer?

Oh, God.. No! You're a Hollywood Tourist SP??

FYI, William Frawley had a heart attack on the corner of what is now Scilon Central - the HGB. He was dragged to the retirement building behind the HGB.

The park you visited is the Will Rogers Memorial Park across the street from the infamous Beverly Hills Hotel & it's celebrity hotspot, The Polo Lounge. I go to that bathroom often when I'm in the area for long walks. Unlike the rest of the concrete jungle I live in with it's traffic, old Beverly Hills, as you know, have wide streets & sidewalks & it's a nature walker's dream. George Michael picked the right bathroom. The City keeps it spotless & always loaded with toilet paper. :)

Occasionally, when I'm in the park taking a break & getting water, a foreign tourist will ask me if that's the bathroom where GM groped the cop. LOL.

Awesome video!

You guys rock!!!!!

I laughed watching it when I thought of the ludicrous non-OTness of having a business where you have made SO MANY BITTER ENEMIES that they take time out of their own busy day to come and stand in front of your operation and warn prospective customers:


"Scientology Only Wants Your Money!"


Scieno-Scenario: The Hollywood Boulevard "Testing Center". Cult members try to trick wog pedestrians to come inside, away from the former Scientologists protesting in front, trying to warn them.



PROTESTOR
Scientology only wants your money!

PEDESTRIAN
Wuttt? I thought Scientology was a religion.

PROTESTOR
It is.

PEDESTRIAN
But you said they want my money.
But what does that have to do with religion?

PROTESTOR
Exactly.

PEDESTRIAN
Wait! Are you saying you have to
pay Scientology to practice their religion?!

PROTESTOR
Yeah, but it's not that much.
Can you guess the price if you
want to go to the top level of Scientology?

PEDESTRIAN
I dunno....like five-hundred dollars?

PROTESTOR
LOL. No. Like five-hundred thousand
dollars!

PEDESTRIAN
OMG! That's insane! LOL
And what happens after you
pay them a half-million dollars?

PROTESTOR
After you pay them a half-million dollars,
you end up out here in front of
the cult's recruitment office, trying
to warn nice people like you.

I don't know his name so I watched all of the footage I have of him and the other Hollywood body routers but I don't seem to see any nametags. I'll try to get it from him next time.
