Literary Quote of the Day


"It's not a real place, but then so little of Los Angeles is real, and the parts that are real are the places you don't want to be. Real is for people with guns and hangovers. Real is what you want to avoid. LA believes itself full of magic, and sometimes can even feel that way, but much of this is a mutually agreed upon sleight of hand. You can stand in one place and believe that one day you'll be a movie star - stand somewhere else, and you'll believe that you'll soon be dead. You know that what you see is a trick, but still you want to believe."

-from The Straw Men
