The more things change, the more they are different from the way they used to be

Somewhere in there, I guess I forgot to mention the trip out to visit Dad and Lois in Brea. Had a great time with them and they took us out to Taps in the 'new' Downtown Brea. The beer and porkchop were both awesome, but I still miss the way downtown Brea used to look. Fortunately, if I ever get in that nostalgic mood, I can always watch Phantasm, which has a shot of the little western town Brea once was -- [There's a screencap about halfway down that page: "Next we go to the antique shop..."]

Compare with Brea Blvd. today.

Which one is the horror, really?
