Kick them in the ballots Freeform FF'ing vote and Bye 2020 billboards...

Kick them in ballots Freeform FFing vote billboard
Happy New Year's Eve! By this stage, who doesn't want to kick the rotten 2020 to the curb and start anew with a fresh, shiny New Year.
Bye 2020 Adult Swim billboard
This year we've learned who the real essential workers are. From doctors, nurses and healthcare workers on the frontlines, to the cleaners, delivery drivers, grocery store workers, teachers, postal workers, restaurant staff and everyone else trying to keep everyone, healthy, fed and supported during these challenging times.

2020 also demonstrated the power of your vote to make meaningful change and whilst people wait for some kind of stimulus check to make up for months of unemployment, to help keep them afloat, with food and roof over their head, there's one last battle to be waged.

Unless Democrats take back the Senate in the Georgia runoff elections, don't expect Mitch McConnell to stop obstructing progress. The divide between rich and poor will continue to grow ever wider, whilst people continue to lose their jobs, homes and healthcare. So it truly is time to kick 2020 in the ballots for one last time.
Bye 2020 Adult Swim billboard
The Freeform voting billboard was captured along Highland Avenue on November 10 (intended to encourage Americans to exercise their democratic right to vote in the U.S. Presidential Election), whilst the 'Bye 2020' Adult Swim billboard was snapped along the Sunset Strip on December 20, 2020.

And now for a reality check. The early months of 2021 may be even worse than the whole of 2020, with increases in infections and deaths, COVID-19 fatigue and the idiots still refusing to wear masks and follow simple social distancing advice.
Bye 2020 Adult Swim billboard Sunset Strip
The good news is that at least three vaccines are on the way and a whole new administration in the U.S. to try and get this travesty under control.

So farewell 2020, and don't let the door hit you on your way out.

Grab a bottle of bubbly and may the Force be with you Georgia.

Let Them All Talk movie billboards...

Let Them All Talk film billboard
This time in-between Christmas and the New Year is always the perfect opportunity to catch up on any movies or shows you've not had time for over the busy holiday season.

With that in mind, streaming platform HBO Max was offering up a new film starring Meryl Streep this December, Let Them All Talk, directed by Steven Soderbergh from a screenplay by Deborah Eisenberg.

She plays a Pulitzer Prize-winning author working on a new manuscript, which her publisher hopes is a sequel to her bestselling work, who is convinced to take a cruise ship to London from New York to receive a prestigious literary award because she doesn't want to fly.

She's accompanied by her nephew (Lucas Hedges) and her two old friends, played by Dianne Wiest and Candice Bergen, the latter of which feels her previous novel was based on her life and has caused a rift between the two.

Unbeknownst to the writer, her agent (played by Gemma Chan) also joins them on the transatlantic journey hoping to find out details of the new book.

These movie billboards were snapped along La Brea Avenue, Fountain Avenue, Fairfax Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard from December 7 to December 20, 2020.

Soul movie billboards...

Giant Soul movie billboard
Just because it's Christmas doesn't mean the 'Streaming Wars' have become any less brutal, in fact the conflict has intensified to a whole new blockbuster level.
In addition to HBO Max streaming Wonder Woman 1984 this Christmas Day for its paying subscribers, Disney+ decided to skip a theatrical release for the new Disney/Pixar movie, Soul.

Since Disney's streaming platform only launched last November it makes sense the entertainment giant would bring out the big guns during this pandemic to attract new subscribers and retain those who signed up a year ago.
