As part of the ongoing celebration of the 50th anniversary of the globally-recognized Hollywood Walk of Fame, a time capsule will be buried beneath the concrete at the corner of Hollywood and Highland, according to the Daily News.

Inside are 13 items that are meant to symbolize the five Walk of Fame categories (motion pictures, television, recording, radio and live theater) as well as items that represent the history and significance of the unique landmark.

Hopefully when the capsule is opened 50 years from now, in 2060 during the 100th anniversary celebration, not only will we have not suffered a sidewalk-spilling "big one," but also the opening team has a DVD player and a port for a flash drive handy.
