What pisses me off…

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.
