Horror on the red carpet as Golden Globes entrance flooded with SEWAGE ...
The Daily Mail Online ^ | January 12, 2014 | Joshua Gardner

as stars begin to arrive for annual awards ceremony

It was a mad dash to scrub the red carpet ahead of Sunday's Golden Globes after a pipe burst, spewing liquid some say smelled of sewage across the pathway for the stars.

Black water gushed onto horrified members of the international press awaiting the arrival of Hollywood glitziest stars dressed in their finest gala attire.

The press fled from the spill as the Beverly Hills Fire Department rushed to the scene to clean up the smelly mess in front of Hollywood's famous Beverly Hilton Hotel.

An E! Television red carpet correspondent was among the disgusted press members who witnessed the unprecedented sullying of one of the world's most anticipated celebrity events.

'A pipe has appeared to totally bust and there is water gushing, literally everywhere in the position of where all of the international press – everyone has moved out of the way,' said Catt Sadler. 'Rain was not expected in LA today, but we've got a little flooding!'

The flooding was apparently more like a malodorous deluge.

'Sewage pipe break on red carpet at #GoldenGlobes so it’s not hot as s**t but it could smell like it today. Good times,' tweeted Access Hollywood's Billy Bush just after the disaster....

According to KABC, the gusher began when a lighting rig overheated, setting off a sprinkler, which rained the fluid down onto the crimson walkway.

But eye witnesses said the water smelled of sewage, suggesting there was more to the story than simply a fire system set off by accident.

'We can confirm that there was a malfunction with a sprinkler near the red carpet,' read a statement from the posh Beverly Hills Hotel, where the Golden Globes have been held--sewage free--for over 50 years....

I guess since NBC, who are airing the Golden Globe Awards tonight, did not cover this on their nightly news broadcast, then this mustn't be news just chat or gossip or whatever.

” the filth Hollywoood pumps out, let a little bit of it flow right back to the source.”
_______________________________________________
I have not been to a movie in about 15 years, but watching the movie channels on my dish indicates that Hollyweird has hit bottom with action movies that are more like cartoons
with massive explosions and wrecks. On occasion, I do get a good Segal or Bond movie, but the others are mostly junk.

It’s amazing how bad things have gotten. I recall about a year ago I was zipping through my channels on DirecTV (and I didn’t even have the usual “pay” movie channels), and I came upon the Encore movie channel. There was a scene in a movie of a wolfman/wolfmonster graphically raping some young woman, and then slitting her throat, as her helpless boyfriend watches in horror from an adjacent room. Said wolfman then goes to the boyfriend and bloodily rips his testicles off.

You know, I’m not averse to the horror film genre. Used to love the old-time horror films. But somehow, just flipping through channels and running into this, it really hit home how vomitous the whole culture has become. I got rid of my dish after that. I really have zero interest in seeing a single second of anything modern anymore. I’ll just stick to old, vintage films and tv-shows from an America that I love and can morally relate to.

It wasn’t sewage...just fire sprinklers.

Sprinkler systems are not tested....once they are in place and charged, they remain that way unless drained for alteration or new construction.

Hence the water inside remains and stagnates...sometimes for decades. The water smells like sewage because the same water has been sitting in those pipes for years.

That is hard to say, but most all would be with Sean Connery.
He is the master at “Bond, James Bond”. Goldfinger would be one at the top of the list.

I'm glad you pointed that out. Some in an earlier thread pointed that out as well -- but that thread got deleted for some unknown reason.

That being said, what a lovely time for all that stagnant water to be purged from the system.
