The weird thing about L.A. is that it can take you over two hours to cross it and if you drive away from a city like New York for two hours, you’re in NJ.  The Comic Bug was in Manhattan Beach and even with Brother Hollywood’s considerable knowledge and skill of the L.A. roads, it seemed like it took forever to get there.

It was a good little signing and the Comic Bug has a great selection.  We sold some books, said hi to some fans, ate a burger, drank a beer—  Very laid back, like California itself.  Then we went to In and Out Burger, met up with Ahmet, got some frozen yogurt and went to see 10,000 B.C. with our signing money.

10,000 B.C. was the sort of movie that made you wished you had watched the Transporter 2 again, even though that sucked.  It didn’t suck nearly as much as 10,000 B.C.  No boobies, CGI animals and a very loose command of pre-history.  Did you know the mammoths helped build the pyramids?  Gee, maybe the dinosaurs helped Aristotle invent philosophy!  Apocalypto was so much better.  When the audience is laughing out loud at the movies costumes and they’re supposed to be cavemen, you know you’re in trouble.

Fortunately, we were able to wash our eyes by going up to Ahmet’s house and watching South Park.  Although it was a weak season opener, it was way better than the cavemen and the CGI animals.  Tomorrow we’re having dinner with Chris Moreno and probably doing lunch at this cheese shop I keep hearing about.
