Raid on the HGB & Winter Wonderland, 12/11/10

Post by Smurf » Sun Dec 12, 2010 9:24 am

A small group of anons protested at the HGB, the Testing Center & L. Ron Hubbard's Winter Wonderland tonight in Hollywood. The weather was on the warm side and the streets were packed with people. Hollywood Blvd between Highland & LaBrea was shut down for the Los Angeles movie premier of Disney's 'Tron: Legacy'.

I heard that stress tables were set up at the Hollywood/Highland complex. When I arrived, the table had been broken down & was being carted away. I asked one of the Scilons why they were leaving. He said H & H security ordered them to shut down because the tables were interfering with the massive flow of people on the sidewalk, already limited by traffic barriers set up for the movie premiere.

After spotting & calling out HGB security guard Andy Knapp hiding behind a door (where curtain tech was applied), he made himself known and I managed to have a somewhat casual conversation with him.. and got him to laugh...

Thanks for that. It must be quite a challenge to make something slightly interesting out of something so dull, sad and depressing as scientology's winter wonderland.

Hey smurf, I think the song "Don't Rain on My Parade" in the 2nd video was meant for you protesters, lol!

This is sooooo funny... I got an email from YouTube today saying they may take down my 2nd video for copyright violation.. the girl in green singing "Don't Rain on My Parade" is owned by Warner/Chappell Music....

Smurf, when youtube says that "no action is required" it usually means that they let it go but they put an iTunes link and other adverts on that video page. They've done the same thing to one or two of mine. I suppose it's better than them muting the audio or taking the video off altogether.

Thanks, Sponge. I hope that is the case. I think it would set quite a precedent for YouTube to take action against every video that showed someone singing or dancing tune a show tune in a public venue.
