Default Rumpel-Sleepless in L.A.

He's just back from OZ and is paying $500 monthly for a couch in a place with a germophobe woman. Can anyone come up with something better, so he can get settled?

Get settled?

WTF does LA offer him? It's the keening venal center of the universe full of people with 5 minutes worth of material instead of personalities where two thirds of the population live in hope waiting for a phone to ring. It's a reptile brain of a city.

But how do you REALLY feel, Martin? That said, I didn't find LA particularly compelling as a performer or as audience. It seems that most of those guys have, as you said, 5 minutes worth of material. They only want to perform until they get discovered by some talent agent for some dumb cable show somewhere.

I think the only way to survive LA is to *not* be in the business. Become a plumber or cabinet maker, surfer or curbside orange seller, but for God's sake don't become a performer.

Andy Warhol said that people would become famous for 15 minutes. He overshot that a bit. Today, with the advent of reality shows, jackass shows, and YouTube, it's more like 15 seconds of fame: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/15_minutes_of_fame
