Cat and dog boutique featuring pet couture… Yes, we are all going to Hell. Actually, I take that back. Tails of Santa Monica is active in pet rescue. They are going to animal heaven.

Say you want to read something beside the Internet. Like a magazine, say. Stop reading this and go to Main Street News. Hook up with something tactile. See if I care.

The Victorian Sci Fi paraphernalia in the windows of this enigmatic Main Street storefront is a puzzlement to many passersby. That, and the fact that it never seems to be open. Actually, this exotic movie prop shop is generally open on weekends between 12 and 4 pm, and a $1 donation is required.

If you’re smart, you’ll cough up. If you’re lucky, you’ll be regaled by quixotic owner Parke Meek (or someone equally informative) who will fill your head with tales of wonder.

You ask me, that’s a buck well spent. Blucher!
