Hollywood Forever Cemetery: Where VIPs RIP

Right in the heart of Hollywood is one of Los Angeles' oldest cemetery. The 114 year-old cemetery is aptly named Hollywood Forever, for it was the chosen resting place by many starry VIPs.

No surprise there since the site is just next to Paramount Studios. And in addition, when one stands on the main driveway looking back to the front gates, the iconic Hollywood sign could clearly be seen.

Having a morbid interest in cemeteries (the older, the better), Red Dot Diva roped in good friend Chelle for a morning walk at Hollywood Forever last week. With the help of a $5 map purchased from the flower shop, the two set off to hunt down a few famous graves.

SDCC 2013: An X-Files Reunion?? Deny Everything!

Comic-Con 2013 took an unexpectedly darker turn as conspiracies abound recently about an X-Files 20th Anniversary Reunion to be hosted by a publication company called TV Guide.

There was a wave of murmurings about the special event, with several witnesses claiming that an announcement about it, had been printed and issued by TV Guide.

Later, "confirmations" were cited by several watchdog websites, bloggers and journalists, including leaked details about the momentous occasion, which will probably overtake last year's "Firefly" Reunion.
