>I moved to LA after directing several shorts and producing a feature. I am currently spending most of my time writing. The problem I face is that I hate Hollywood, specifically the obsession with money and power. Looking at all these trendy bitches...makes me want to scream and grab the nearest UZI -- is that how you spell UZI! If I wrote scripts about UZI's I wouldn't be working nights as a waitress! I hate Hollywood!
I write sci-fi comedy for fun - no expectations of fame and fortune. Your spelling is fine - but I'm available to proofread for you...
Seriously, the entertainment industry is a "syndicate" in every sense of the word. If this was a business, it would be run by the Gotti family. Actually, it is run by the Geffens of this world, the likes of which have proposed a "tax" on blank tapes and actually succeeded with a "tax" on blank CD media. Having said that, I guess I'll never work in the music industry in this town again...not that I ever did in the first place!!!
