They had the one I wanted to play for so long.
Video below of my trek through the game.
Sherman Oaks Castle Park

Not for the reason you think. No, I went to the gift shop. Yes, the Los Angeles County Corner's Office does have a gift shop and it gets more horribly morbid as I go on. The Gift Shop is grimly titled
Skeletons in the Closet
1104 N. Mission Road Los Angeles, CA 90033(323) 343-0760
To start off parking is easy, but don't forget to get a visitor's pass at the lobby of the building below.
Skeleton's provides a body bag bloated with a corpse that's been rotting in a pool in morbid merchandise. The LA County logo dawns shirts, magnets, pens, baseball caps, shorts and what have you. What really stood out were the beach towels which had the outline from a crime scene on it. It comes in four colors and is the store bestseller. Next is the shirts which you'll also find below. The store isn't big, but is filled with great items. Sadly, the higher ups don't really want anything in the store to be to bloody or sick so don't except anything too horrible. I wish they had post cards. Wouldn't be perfect if they had, "Wish you were here, Los Angeles County Corner's Office. The staff who seems to be only one woman named Edna is helpful and nice and will answer your sick needs.
To bad Christmas just ended, but hey you might end up there next year.

Right down the road from Porto's is a cupcake heaven of delicious moistness. Anyway the cupcakes are good and innovative such as cupcake on a stick. The staff is helpful and polite so go ahead and ask them what they recommend. Prices vary but on average one cupcake will cost you $2.75. Nice selection of different It's a nice set up, well if you like pink.
A store like no other 8 Ball brings the crazy random stuff u need off the internet into a shop. 8 ball is a store filled with gag gifts from bacon flavored floss to monkey candles. The random stuff will draw u in and allow you to have some laughs. The store has some great random greeting cards for every occasion that'll make you say wtf. If you've seen it on the internet it possibly might be here. Right next Porto's (Brazialian sandwhiches) and Quizno's if your hungry.

Now thta Christmas is dead and I have some free time I've hit a bust of Japanese culture. I was on Sawtelle the other day and got some free vidoe game magazine Hyper Game was giving out. I'll post a article about Hyper Game soon, but just to tell you it's a small little video game store that carries a lot of imports. Anyway the mag had some really cool pics of video game shirts that are totally unavalaible here in America, don't even bother looking on ebay.
Then I caught wind of Panda-Z which just amuses me as it rips off Mazinger Z the classic robot anime. Panda-Z charcters never talk and eventually in a episode a female robot seduces a male robot, you see them lighting cigarettes after a battle that was off camera. Here's a random episode below

Here's a new series of the sites Video game press kits. I'm gonna try posting some here so that video game companies realize I play video games too and can review them on this site. Plus I love how cool some of them look. Now this kit was made by art collective i am 8-bit for Capcom. This is the fictional company in the Resident Evil 5 game Tricell. The dvds in the kit have a fake program pop up that "anazlizes your system for viruses". I love the detail.
Saw the Volt. It's tiny, and you have no chance of buying one with it's extemely limited run. By the way the Conver J is below not the Volt. I wouldn't want to ruin your day by posting how crappy it is.
designs of cars at the LA auto show this year. Car Hero stuck out like a giant wii game. Car Hero is how people in the future would be trained in the art of driving. The poster just works so much , plus it looks like a open video game case from the back. Video games are everywhere jeez, just look below to see Rock Star show off their racing game Midnight Club Los Angeles. Rock Star was handing out t-shirts, stickers and very uninterested chicks handing them out. Give me booth babes, please.
