I never saw you as the sort of guy who would be "home" in LA. A little too flaky and shallow a place for a guy like you, I'd guess.

Then again, I'm permanently homeless (although I own part of a house)

i don't think it's fair, or correct, to make sweeping generalizations about people based on where they live.

i haven't talked to everyone, but everyone i have talked to has thanked me for my service and taken a demo. maybe i'm being naive, but they seem real enough so far.

Fair enough - most my LA interactions came from dot-com stuff, where I got the whole materialistic, flaky, and shallow experience. There is a very good chance that the only thing in common with all those dysfunctional experiences was ... me.

Actually the core population of LA is rather down to earth. There are more blue collar industries there than the bay area, which helps smooth it out a little bit. Most of the flaky shallow people are from other places who think that's the way you're supposed to act when you get there, similar to how most of the commie vegan lesbians in the Bay Area are from Minnesota or upstate New York. ;-)
