Nigga fuck LA. If your hell bent on living some where thats shitty and overpriced try Orange County Or San Diego. LA is only held in such high esteem because of hollywood, but remove that and you got one big sprawling overpriced ghetto. Fuck LA, I'm so happy I moved out.
>>25940737 The super dangerous ghetto parts of LA aren't really any cheaper than the crummy but sleepy parts, though, and they probably won't even rent to an anon in the ghetto parts.
OP would probably end up in the SFV or something, where the only real danger would maybe be a car break-in or something, unless he goes wandering around at 3AM on the street and gets stabbed by a tweaker.
>>25940838 Hollywood is bullshit too, that place is 10% tourist trap and 90% shitty ghetto itself.
I went to middle school right in the middle of that shithole (Bancroft) and then one of my first real jobs was at an ad agency at Highland and Santa Monica. (I drove all over town for them, delivering tapes and prototype posters and stuff.)
The industry itself is fucked too, filled with crazy narcissists, constant backstabbing, ridiculous sycophant networking bullshit, etc.
>>25941291 Affordable apartments in LA are broken down '50s-'60s shitholes, trust me, they're not nice. I lived up near Sacramento for a while, and I know that's not rural, but it's tiny compared to LA, and I was absolutely blown away by how nice the apartments were compared to LA ones, and that they cost a fraction of the price.
>>25941432 Those are probably demo units. Complexes refurbish one apartment for photos and walkthroughs, and then the thing they actually give you is trash.
Also, the carpets are only because of laws, and they're cheap shit carpets, and the updated kitchen shit is usually just new faces on the same old shitty drawers and cabinets. The appliances are usually trash in the unit you actually get, and you have to buy your own appliances in many cases, especially fridges. (I don't know why, but LA apartments never come with fridges, apparently that's not true in other cities.)
You're also talking about living with no A/C and maybe a barely working ceiling fan in areas where it often reaches 100+, there's no insulation, and shit doesn't work any better than anywhere else.
>>25939996 Find someone looking for a room mate or an aparment for yourself if you can afford it on craigslist. Make sure you have enough money to survive for a little bit. Or have a job lined up. Put your shit on a truck and move. It's not as hard as it seems I moved from the east to the west coast myself.
>>25941200 I live in long beach. I will kill you..... If You Do Make The Move Make sure you explore rancho palos verdes Peninsula It's a great Escape from the urban environment. The seaside cliff landscape is amazing.
>>25943158 have any idea how many end up working shit jobs, become beach bums or whores(man whores are weirdly common there), or drug addicts. Moving to LA pretty much has zero chance of success. You'd be better off making a youtube channel, seriously you'd probably have way more success with that.
Not me personally but I have a friend who wants to be a writer in TV personally it's something he holds onto and I'm not going to go tell him you can't do that. I'm sure he's well aware of how hard it is to break into that industry
