QUIZ – What Lies Beneath (Walt Disney’s Garage Studio)

Okay, time’s up. The answer is after the jump!!!

******************
It’s that time of the week again! :)

Just to refresh your memory, here’s how this little game goes… first we’ll show you a spot on a google map (see below). We’re thinking of a notable location that’s within walking distance of that exact point, less than a block or two away. Within 24 hours we’ll give you the full details… but as before, we’re going to give you a little time to guess what we’re referring to first. We encourage you not to cheat by googling the address (but we know how impatient some of you are). If you know the answer right away please try not to announce it too quickly and ruin the game for the people who don’t.
And no hints this time! BWAHHAHAHAHAAAHHHH!!! < ---(That's our evil laugh.)

Ready? GO!

RESOURCE – Avoiding Oscar Pileups

oscarOkay, so some people are into the Oscars, some aren’t. What *I’m* really into is not getting stuck in Oscar traffic. Fortunately, I can now thank the Academy for making a handy PDF to help folks like me achieve this goal.

The road closure alerts for today and tomorrow are linked as images after the jump. To get a bigger view, just click on the image.

BTW, the image of Rob Lowe & Snow White really has nothing to do with tonight’s Oscars in particular. It’s just something I honestly can’t believe I ever witnessed on live television…

RESOURCE – Crime Maps

LAPD crime mapFeel like taking a stroll around the block in your finest diamonds but curious about the safety of your neighborhood? While I wouldn’t exactly recommend it as the definitive source, if you plug your address into the LAPD Crime Maps interface, you’ll see an interesting view of some of the stuff that went down in your hood over the last week. Diamond heists generally included.

EveryBlock is another site that’s possibly more thorough, although it seems to work better when you list an intersection instead of an exact address.
