    People are crazier than they appear
    English is a second language
    WeHo is gay
    There's no rush hour, its 24/7
    Yellow light is still green, red is yellow
    You make your own speed limit (if possible)
    Everyone knows someone famous
    Almost everyone is a photographer
    Almost everyone is broke but they won't admit it

    Ive only been here for 3 months so Im still learning, but feel free to add to the list.

    Hollywood is trashy, hooker on the streets trashy
    Venice beach is trashy
    Walk through most alleys and you'll pass at least two homeless people
    Cost of living is insane to live in an apartment that looks like its from the 70s
    Thats not fog you see, its smog
    Pretentious as FUCK

    THATS NOT FOG?!?!?! that was my first question when I first saw it icon_smile.gif

    One time at night I went to Venice beach, and it was like a druggies/homeless convention, scarred me for life.

    Venice beach is about 1 tent away from being a circus. I saw some bodybuilder guy wearing nothing but tattered jean shorts (tight of course) and fucking rollerblades going up and down the strip flexing for women asking if they were into muscles...................fucking seriously? I laughed out loud and he saw me laughing right at his dumb ass. I dont know what his game was but that shit was desperate.

    I saw a guy at Malibu, in the beach parking lot, leaning against his(?) red convertible corvette, flexing his pecs and arms at every one who drove in. He was still there doing it when I left. icon_rolleyes.gif

    hey here's another fun fact about LA

    its in the US of A and unlike the former soviet union, you're free to get the fuk out anytime your bitch list gets to be too much for you.

    i laugh my ass off at people who move here from mayberry and are crushed becuz it's not like they saw on the OC or 90210.

    living in LA is like living in any major metropolitan urban environment, it is what you make of it. some people can't adapt, that's why they make places like omaha NE.

    Rule Of Thumb:
    Move to LA for the weather, the culture, and the amenities. If you're seeking fame and fortune, then stay the fuck where you are. There are way too many wannabe writers, actors, and models here already. We don't have enough Starbucks to employ all of you! icon_lol.gif

    Bitch please, did sand get in your vagina? No? Then shut the fuck up.
    I didn't complain about LA, I'm stating the obvious...I moved here for a reason and I'm enjoying it, so bitch behave.

    You forgot to mention that everyone is flaky. Part of the unique culture!

    yourname2000 saidThe things I've learned on RealJock



    Guys are crazier than I thought
    Bitching is second nature
    Guys who insist they're str8 acting usually aren't
    There's no admin, it's open season
    On RJ: "7s" in RL are "5s", "9s" are "7s"
    You make your own truth (wherever possible)
    Everyone is friendly with at least one troll
    Almost everyone is an attention whore
    Almost everyone is horny and quite ready to admit it

    I've been here for a year and a half and I'm still trying to figure it out.


    I think thats worth starting a separate thread

    Second that!

    As for LA I very hesitantly visited there twice. The second arrival, if written properly, would make an excellent series of scenes in a nightmare comedy. I wasn't there long but long enough to verify several of your points. "Image," in LA, is industry.

    Hey ohboy,

    I've been down to LA a few times and had fun while I was there. I was visiting a good buddy who has lived there for 8 years. It's just such a big place that's there's room for everyone, even if it's not instantly available. Went running a couple times in Runyon Canyon - beautiful park (and beautiful men).

    I'm actually headed down there in a few weeks for an interview. I'll be staying somewhere near downtown. Would be fun to grab a drink and hear what else has been added to the list of things you've learned icon_smile.gif

    I actually get where you coming from, and I'd probably react the same way you did if someone was saying that about my former soviet union. I didnt mean to trash it, just stating how its different from Seattle for example.

    I'm not one of the wannabes, my dreams will not get crushed here. Im doing great so far and LA will be part of my life for some time.

    So, in order to come to this conclusion you must have walked through a lot of alleys.

    What are you doing walking through so many alleys in LA?

    1. That's not fog
    2. Hollywood isn't as great as it's portrayed in media
    3. It's not the city for me.
