I'll go ahead and say this: it was lame of me to come into this thread and act all butt hurt from my post. I'm not butt hurt, but more or less curious as to why you LD as smart and crafty as you is (which you are) is still trying to live the dream. I know you a rebel dawg... you take the high road all that baba, but at some point in your life dude you will want to settle down, a fam maybe? You can do ample things I'm sure with your wit and creativity... I'm just scratching my head at why you feel like it has to be the 'Hollywood' way.

If you're so concerned about putting your name out there then try a different avenue. You're no doubt cool, sharp, etc... so you can easily do just about anything you want. Why are you so hell bent on living the LA dream? That shit is garbage man.

This world is fu*king trash. And you want to fit in with the other stars in the limelight that it makes up? If you're such a rebel dude... do something with your life that's positive and worthwhile ... the fame, cash, stardom is all a gimmick for a moment... instead, do something that will please you know... the man upstairs. That's the real glory my friend. Think about it.

I'm not going to lie. I admire Lamar Doom. Sometimes I think about what's really the point of going to work for a big corporation like I'll be doing. I mean, they'll practically own me. I'm sure I'll enjoy it but I'm not sure if it will really be WORTH it. Or if it will really make a difference in the grand scheme of things. I look at videos of Danny Macaskill riding a bike in the beautiful countrysides and castles of Scotland. And here I am studying how drill for oil. Not saying I don't think it's useless but I would love to have that type of skill or talent of something. I'm sure there's millions out there that share the same sentiment. Life could be way worse though.


I just hope I get to travel around so I don't become bored. I don't think I could ever just go random places on little money. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't survive and when I hit rock bottom, I' call up my parents to bum off them and pretty much have nothing to fall back on (assuming I wouldn't have a college degree).

It's one thing to admire the dream, but also realize the dream is just that, a dream. When there's a million dreamers and one superstar in the mix, chances are you're getting lost in the chaos and confusion. The good life isn't based on a million to one crap shoot... it's based on understanding the world around you, knowing your value, and taking what's yours. Unfortunately, the Hollywood industry doesn't work that way. However, the RW does. That's the point I'm trying to get across to LD.

Hell, he could start his own business doing something. He doesn't have to have a 'boss' ... he can be 'the man' and whatnot... it just takes courage and ambition to know you can do it ... he's witty and sharp enough to think of SOMETHING... yet he's still banking on this hollywood 'big break' bullshit.

sad shit.

again, I think you've got stuck in your head that I'm some superficial glory seeker out here to live some hollywood entourage dream and I think that's based on your ignorance of how the industry works and some misconceptions about me and hollywood that you've latched onto. I work 60-80 hour weeks, there isn't much glory in it. It's freelance by definition but it's steady for the most part and as legit as an insurance job. The main difference is I'm on a film set and not in an office. Also we only work for the run of the show so we get time off in between (can be weeks or months pending what's next). I'm not trying to fit in with limelight stars, I'm not trying to get my name out there. I love film, I enjoy being part of the creative process, ideally I'll get (paid) to make some of my own stuff instead of lending myself to other's projects but if not I'm comfortably employed, can raise a family whenever I choose to, and working a perfectly legit career path. I don't love my job every day but I'm not bored and it's closer to "the dream" than most professions. I'm not waiting on some "big break" - that's something you keep trying to pin on me and it's simply not true.

Again, you just don't really know what you're talking about.

Sad shit.

you're one of the most openly f*cked up people on this forum, it makes me laugh how consistently you feel you're in a position to drop knowledge about life. You can save the advice for future reference, I think you're a big time dip shit with nothing to offer me. thanks dude.

Good points. All well said. I was actually posting something in length then suddenly it all got ghost b/c of some key being pressed that took me back or some ish... but oh well... LOL ... I was giving props for you being you... and saying basically with your talents of knowing the Hollywood industry, you should look into doing something that hasn't been done before like offering a service or something unique that is new to the industry itself product wise... hell I dont know... but with your creativity there has to be something you could work up... errrr sounded much better in my original post post but fu*k it.
