What pisses me off…

21 Jul

I am writing this blog and I am burning with late night rage; it’s safe to say that things in LA haven’t been a bed of roses and I am not sure how much longer I will stay. If there is one thing that really pisses me off it’s a kind of arrogance that I have recently become a victim of.

Some of you will be aware that I am living the life of a homeless vagrant; having been clean cut most my life I now have long hair and a full beard. I also have very little (now zero) money, I want to understand the truth of my characters life, I want the authentic experience. What riles me right now is that certain people assume that because of my “appearance” I have no talent and that I am in some ways a lesser human being. Their prejudice and superior attitudes are “obvious” for everyone to see… if they just stopped for one second and listened then they would understand.

So I guess I’m having the genuine experience.

    Well Geoff, that’s L.A. for you, it’s a pretty shallow place, and why we escaped so many years ago. I’m sorry you’re going through that, but stay true to your dream and it WILL Happen.

    It is good to vent the frustration! just don’t let the rage consume you;
    It’s an opportunity they’ve missed, and you will reach your goals through other connections.
    Perhaps you need to come home for a visit? only 2 degrees of separation here, LOL; have you seen the new Rhys Darby advert for 2Degrees? 😀
    Here is a link from a California Filmmaker. I dunno why, but I thought you might find it funny… and maybe that is how those fools will feel in time. –> http://mattkoval.com/never-ignore-a-nerd/ 🙂 Never judge a book by it’s cover!

    If YOU believe in your goals and trust you will accomplish them…then it will happen. No one can stand in your way. It is what you put out into the universe that comes back to find you.

    I’m having the genuine experience of having to listen to someone complaining about nothing 😀
