Residents living north and west of the massive Universal City fire are being warned not to breathe the smoke that is blanketing their neighborhood.

Hey! I used to live near there! (In the building with the cheapest rent in the postal code of Studio City) I remember seeing Universal’s tall office building at the west end of the lot from my front door. And going to work in Pasadena, I crossed even closer to the ‘ol back lot.

Of course, what worries me the most is the fact that the fire has destroyed much of Universal’s on-site “Video Vault”. Spokesfolks say they have multiple copies of everything at different locations, but I know a little about how Hollywood mega-studios are (dis-)organized, and wouldn’t be surprised if some episodes of “Leave It To Beaver” or “Ironside” may be lost. Anyway, time to do MY backups… lots and lots of backups.
