buffySouthland Tales just gets weirder and weirder. First it brings us images of The Rockmaking out with porn star Buffy, and now word comes that it somehow involves a massive encampment of homeless people. Lots and lots of actors were hired to play the homeless, complete with "dirt" on their faces and "rags" to wear. Meanwhile, cops surrounded the area to make sure that the actual homeless were unable to scavenge any scraps from the set. Nice.

While I actually buy the excuse that the union contract probably had something to do with hiring professionals to pretend to be homeless, it seems like the situation could have been handled with just a little more delicacy. You know, like maybe without security chasing the homeless away from movie garbage that they might be able to use.
