h1 Saturday, July 31st, 2010

It’s funny to think that Harry Potter would be 30 today according to the date given in the first book, July 31, 1980. It is fun as well to see how the cast has grown up in the films. Check out the official site for the upcoming finale of the films which will be split in two. Get ready to break out the brooms and butterbeer. It’s going to be awesome!

Passive Arts Fire - Tuesday July 27, 2010

h1 Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

By T.J.”Pandora”Teer

At around 11am this Tuesday morning, the fire department was called in to La Cienega Blvd. in regards to a fire in a warehouse.

But this wasn’t just ANY warehouse.

This was the dungeon of Passive Arts. An upscale Adult club that caters to mostly bondage and one of the longest and discreet fetish locations since 1974.

The fire started in the office.

The fire took two lives, one being the owner of the club and the other his dog, Koda.

A person was also sent to the hospital for minor injuries.

The fire inspector said that the fire seemed to be “Suspicious” and that this would be just the beginning for the investigation. An autopsy is to determine the cause of death, but as of now, nothing is set in stone.

For more official information, you can simply “GOOGLE” the rest of the info…honestly the regular news crews are gnashing this like electric hotcakes…



Passive Arts has been in business since 1974….I knew many of the people that played and worked there personally. I am sad to see death has to bring some people together and sometimes we never really know what we have until it is gone.

Right now, is a time of mourning…and we should be thankful that this did not happen when all the rooms were occupied or at full capacity…this … even though tragic and horrible….believe me, could be a lot worse.

a lot worse.

This is usually the times when the communities start bonding together because there is strength in numbers.

If you happen to go by the building that was/is the shell of Passive Arts? I want you to do me a favor:

If anyone ever really READS my articles? Do this: Go over there and Put a flower in front of the doorway…as a way of support, love and remembrance. I will be dropping some off this Saturday.

I want to see how many people can do this.

If you like this idea, please then pass this article along and I want to see a shit ton of flowers there by the end of the weekend.

Let those that need to know, this was NOT in vain…and you care.

Until Next time, Never forget this….

We in this community are like the island of misfit toys…we choose this family. Because they choose US, too.

News from San Diego Comic Con: Guillermo del Toro to work with Disney to Develop a new Haunted Mansion movie.

h1 Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

As long as Eddie Murphy doesn’t show up boils and ghouls we’ll be fine…

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - July 22, 2010 -Guillermo del Toro surprised the 6,500 fans gathered today at Comic-Con with the announcement that he is currently developing a new film for The Walt Disney Studios based on the classic Disney theme park attraction, The Haunted Mansion.

“Dark imagery is an integral part of the Walt Disney legacy. After all, Disney himself was the father of some really chilling moments and characters - think Chernabog from Fantasia or Maleficent as the Dragon or the Evil Queen in Snow White,” said del Toro. “I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of my own adaptation of the original theme park attraction Walt envisioned and that remains- for me- the most desirable piece of real estate in the whole world!”

“Millions of people from around the world visit The Haunted Mansion each year, but no one has ever had a tour guide like Guillermo del Toro,” said Rich Ross, Chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. “Guillermo is one of the most gifted and innovative filmmakers working today and he is going to take audiences on a visually-thrilling journey like they’ve never experienced before.”

Since August 1969, foolish mortals have dared to trespass on the macabre grounds of Disney’s Haunted Mansion. A hallowed landmark in Disneyland’s New Orleans square, it’s the dwelling place of 999 happy haunts dying to meet new visitors each day. The plantation-style of the mansion’s facade is a sweet deception for visitors. Inside, ghostly doom buggies line the hallways. Since its construction, the mysteries of the mansion have transcended the attraction with stories surfacing about horrifying encounters with the supernatural. Versions of the daunting edifice have been built at other Disney theme parks in Orlando, Tokyo and Paris.
