Magnolia Blvd?

I had heard something before about "Magnolia Blvd" and its connection with PTA movies.  Was "Magnolia Blvd", the street in "Boogie Nights" where the night club was located and the street where Dirk gets attacked by a group of people in the middle of a parking lot?  Is it also the street where in "Magnolia", Donnie is first working and where the frogs first fall?  And in "Punch Drunk Love", is it the street where Barry's business is and where the panio arrives?

If so, I want to say that is so awesome!  I mean, I know of directors like Kevin Smith who use towns (Redbank, NJ) for a lot of his movies but to use a street? That is awesome.

I don't live in California and can't recognize any landmarks in the any of his films to put two-and-two together.

Thanks.

PS:  Not worth starting a seperate post on, but the group of people who beat up Dirk in "Boogie Nights"... are these the "Blonde Brothers" from PDL?  For the longest time I thought they were.

Solomon & Solomon (where Donnie works) is actually a furniture store on Sherman Way and Reseda Blvds. in Reseda.  Dirk is attacked right down the street on Sherman Way just past a little street called Darby.  It would appear PTA likes Sherman Way more than Magnolia.

Eckhart Auto Body and the bldg. where Barry works is on Canoga in Chatsworth.

That's the problem with Europeans, they don't know how to kill themselves with food.

And fat, and sugar.

Take my word for it, they're delicious!
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.
