As far as the vibe of the city goes, I’m torn between the desire to be open and receptive, and the instinct to protect myself from the crazies. It’s almost like everyone here feels like they are on the brink of achieving success. Like the next album is going to be picked up by a label, or this new movie is going to be their break out film. Time passes and they stay in the same spot, feeling as if their on the precipice. That is the seduction and the danger of being in this city.
