It can be really annoying to live in the middle of Hollywood sometimes. There always seems to be a premiere on Hollywood Boulevard, which means closed roads and for me a hell of a trip back home from work. That can be almost as annoying as the helicopters that sometimes fly over our heads for a whole evening. But living in Hollywood also has its ups! We decided to go out for a little walk and get coffee in the little shopping mall next to the Kodak Theatre today.
Right across the street is the theatre, in which they shoot the Jimmy Kimmel Show. And tonight Jimmy Kimmel had Lady Gaga as a guest and had her perform on an open air stage right behind the theatre. After getting coffee we decided to walk around the theatre and check out if the show was already over. A strange coincidence let us arrive almost the minute Lady Gaga went on stage, so we did not only get coffee tonight but also a free Lady Gaga show on top!
These moments make it feel so unreal to live in the middle of a major city like LA and also in the middle of Hollywood. Back in Cologne it would have been impossible to just walk 10 minutes and be in the middle of a concert screening or a movie premiere. But here it’s almost normal. Thank you for that, Hollywood!
