Danzig's old house is down the street.
It seems I get groceries from the infamous kitty litter Albertson's.

Happened upon a few recording studios.
• Sunset Sound (Pet Sounds, Exile on Main Street, Bedknobs and Broomsticks)
• The Sound Factory (Beck, Weezer, Beverly D'Angelo)
• Preview Records (Rodd Keith, song-poem god)
Gone. Now home to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.

Found Blue Jay Way.
From The Beatles song.
Tucked away in the Hollywood Hills.
Driving around there feels like trespassing.
BMWs and lookie loo landscaping crews.

Drove down Dead Man's Curve.
That is, I followed the directions in the Jan & Dean song.
Sunset & Vine, west into Beverly Hills at Whittier.
The original hairpin is further west.
Mel Blanc got hit head-on there in the early 60s.
I did not!
