      Reminds of the stuff Joe Rogan was saying about LA being cancer….

    • Craigery

      LA uses its teeth, and it has braces.

    • mouchette

      it's a sprawling dump; downtown is the worst.

    #8 Is this a "Neil Diamond does Elvis" impersonator? Kinda confused…

    • Bevi

      That's exactly what I thought! Elvis Diamond!

      • LucretiusCaro

        It would be interesting to hear In the Ghetto as done by Elvis Diamond.

  • Bob

    This post sucks.

    Built and broken all in the same day. I used to live and work in LA as a kid actor……and I got out as quick as possible when I went to college. It's sad seeing these pictures and having seen them on a daily basis growing up

    • Dick Salad

      I used to hang out there all the time back when I was a kid billionaire business mogul as well. Makes my heart sad to see these pictures.

    • Stephen

      Spent five years there trying to be an actor, and I agree: the minute I had the chance, I booked it. It's fun seeing all the places I recognize (like #4, the Kodak Theater, which was literally less than a few blocks from my apartment), but I would never want to relive it.

    • adMANistrator

      I remember going there on a business trip. I could have dropped everything and been a star. But the world needs software developers. It's sad when I look at the pictures and I realize I don't recognize any of them because I was only there for two days.

    Cool story, Fro. #18

  • BOOMstick

    From those pics, LA looks like a dump

    • Jason

      It pretty much is

    • @TAndrewarhol

      Hollywood Blvd smells like piss, you'll see more homeless than movie stars your best bet to see anyone famous is to go to Mels Diner on Sunset away from the Hollywood area and 98% of the people want to be movie stars and will take you down for no reason other than them being douchebags.

      • black27696

        The kodak theater is in a pretty shitty part of town. Just like everything else that's actually IN L.A.

      • Mikeofla

        When was the last time you were there? I live about 3 miles from there and go down to the Area regularly. Hollywood and Highland have been extensively redeveloped and while still suffering the same blights that any major city suffers, it is by no means a dumb, or a shit hole. And Dude, Mel's Diner is Hollywood. That entire Area, from Franklin down to Melrose, and Fairfax to Normandie is Hollywood Proper.

        BTW, I am no in the entertainment industry, and was born here.

        • NIzzy

          @Mikeofla You are delusional, or have Stockholm syndrome. LA continues to be a total shit hole, and the entertainment industry continues to portray it as the promised land. It has nice weather…that's about it.

  • Shawzy

    Meh doesnt look that bad, just needs a coat of paint!!

    • Steven B

    • OnehandJack

      It's…TheChive…kind of what it does…*confused*

  • bottlecaps

    So…LA sucks, well who knew? Thanks Chive for this ground breaking news.

  • bob

    Why? This is any big city in Merica these days…
    And you forgot to include a good picture of Smog!

  • milpool

    This post makes no sense; serves no purpose.

  • Skedaddle

    The boulevard of broken dreams. Of course there’s always In-N-Out.

  • @JoshDWReeve

    Soooo…..Whats your point?

  • that_ALBANIAN_guy

    Looks like parts of every other city I've seen. Dreams or nightmares, every place is famous for something. Some for things that are more famous than others. My city is famous for boredom. Deal with it.

  • DuckDitch

    What a shit hole

  • RMFT-Live

    Pictures of poor people with a title calling them demons…. Kinda snobbish

  • Tommy
