I had been toying with the idea of heading over to the Hollywood and Highland complex yesterday. Mariah Carey was appearing in a free concert sponsored by Samsung as part of their Summer Krush Concert Series

She was set to perform a 35 minute set at around 8:00 so I figured if I really wanted to get a good bird's eye view, I would just hang around the 2nd level of the complex and read or write while I wait. I knew there'd be a heck of a lot of people so I planned to be there around 3 pm.

Well, after sweeping the driveway and putting in some work in front of the computer, I decided to rest my eyes for a quick catnap before making the trek to see Mrs. Cannon. Uh... my body had vetoed that decision--no way was I going to have the physical or mental energy to deal with crazed fans. It was Zzzzzzzonkarooni City for me! Thank goodness I wasn't all that keen to fighting the crowd because I learned later that her concert was airing on Jimmy Kimmel show -- yippee, I didn't miss anything.
(it'll probably be online later at:

And the crowd was HUMONGOUS; numbering about 2000 or more, according to the LA Times & Todd Martens (image by Todd Martens)

Summer Krush indeed!
