The place where I want to go. I'd like to learn how to drive there. I've got a mix of love - hate, so much hate for L.A and South Cal way of life.
"Everything in Los Angeles is too large, too loud and usually banal in concept. … The plastic asshole of the world."
"I never felt sadder in my life. L.A. is the loneliest and most brutal of American cities; New York gets godawful cold in the winter but there’s a feeling of wacky comradeship somewhere in some streets. L.A. is a jungle."
“A big hard-boiled city with no more personality than a paper cup.”
"It’s mostly full of nonsense and delusion and egomania. They think they’ll be young and beautiful forever, even though most of them aren’t even young and beautiful now."
"It's like being nowhere and talking to nobody about nothing."
"I mean, who would want to live in a place where the only cultural advantage is that you can turn right on a red light."
"Los Angeles? That's just a big parking lot where you buy a hamburger for the trip to San Francisco."
