Karie Bible has agreed to give the Daily Mirror’s Brain Trust a tour of Hollywood Forever Cemetery on a particularly appropriate day – Oct. 2 – so we can commemorate the 1910 bombing of The Times. Most of the 20 victims of the explosion and fire are buried here, along with many celebrities that we’ll be hearing about.

We will meet for lunch at Astroburger (5601 Melrose Ave. at Gower) at 12:30 p.m. and the tour will begin at 2 p.m. at the cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd. Here’s a map of both locations.

    I so want to attend this, but sadly I will not be able to. I hope the Brain Trust has an outstanding time and wave to the Johnny Ramone cenotaph for me.

    Oh, I wish I could be there! I have taken guided tours of Woodlawn and Green-Wood in New York, and had a wonderful time. Did you know both Nora Bayes and Florence La Badie are in unmarked graves?

    (I almost typed “arr in unmarked graves,” as today is Talk Like a Pirate Day)

  3. Mary Mallory says:

    Is Jack Norworth anywhere near Nora, Eve, arggh?

  4. James Curtis says:

    Jack is actually down here in Orange County, Mary. Anaheim, I believe.

  5. Mary Mallory says:

    That’s probably why I was able to buy a cheap autographed copy of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” sheet music from an Orange County postcard dealer two years ago.

  6. I’m happy KB is gonna give your Brain Trust this tour.
    I hope to make it, although I may be feel only 1/2 asleep at 12:30 Sun @ Astroburger. However by the time we get to the cemetery I should feel fully alive.
