  • “Only in LA…”

    A phrase that goes only with a head shake. But, not to worry, that head is just following a script. Read the stage direction carefully.

    Be sure to act like you think the shameless aesthetic shallow nuances are beneath you. But, this isn’t character acting.

    No one said you had to actually believe it. Don’t climb the ladder.

    It’s okay to laugh. Laughter can mean a lot of things. Just don’t let on, that this time, it’s appreciation. The audience might start to catch on.

    Keep your real heart far from your sleeve and tucked into your chest—it’s worthless here anyway. But, beware of the pickpocket tourists.

    Stay tuned—fresh faced. Be clear. Be confident. Be proactive.
