OK, all you L.A. guys!

I'm currently planning a big move to L.A. this year.

On-line research is helpful, but I'll need tips and advice from those who live there or transplanted themselves from another city.

I want info on culture, the BEST places to live, BEST cost of living in any area...BEST jobs (especially gay-friendly jobs)...and so on

Potential roommate locator would be very appreciated.

Thanks for the help.
