Stars literally get in the eyes of Mark Wasserman as he examines the sidewalks of his Hollywood neighborhood in the August 8, 2004 issue of The Los Angeles Times Magazine. Stars on the Walk of Fame become metaphors for his moods—evolving from alienation to acceptance—while he adjusts to living in Southern California. At first he sees them as lunch-meat, martial arts weapons and, finally, starfish.

LAist can't wait to learn how Wasserman views the palm trees.
