I heard that he made a post today but that it's not visible to the regular members. Do you see a recent post from him in the mods section or whatever? Or is that meant to be secret? :silent:

I'm not a mod, and don't have access to the mod section.

not only because it is a big place, but because of Hollywood. I grew up on Hollywood lies. A lot of films make L.A. look quaint, but I have heard that it is a much nastier and competitive place than even NYC.

I'm new here,

If you're still on your way, I live in San Bernardino, which is about 60 miles East of LA off the 10 freeway - the main route into LA from the East. Stop by if you like. Once you get to San Bernardino, it's all suburbs the rest of the way, and boring as hell. You might need a respite before all that. :)

Of course, if you're already here, welcome. Don't believe all the negatives about Southern California. I lived back east for 11 years and would rather be here. The weather's great most of the time, there's lots to do and see, and most people you meet are not going to be shallow actor types. There's some very interesting people here from all different ethnic backgrounds who've made SoCal their home. Be sure to visit UCLA. They have one of the largest autism research programs in the country.

Which might as well be non-existent to most people for various reasons.

You know, that may be true, but I believe there's always hope. America is a collective of minds coming together on important issues - always has been. There's a synergistic connection in that collective that seems to make things work pretty well, and most often it takes time for the kinds of change necessary to make it work. I'm hopeful.

I'm from Southern California, and I love it here.

While in LA, you should check out the Kevin and Bean morning radio show on KROQ 106.7 FM. (there is also a podcast for people outside of SoCal)
One of the hosts (Bean) has Asperger's, and the other one (Kevin) has ADD.

It's not a show focused on Autism or anything, just a silly comedy show, and usually when Bean's Asperger's is brought up he will deny that he fits the criteria; But I think it's interesting to hear his perspective on things and then hear how the people around him react to his thought process.

Every few days they have a feature called "Thanks for that info, Bean". A bit where the rest of the cast calls Bean out for his most recent aspie moments, and point out that nobody else had any interest in whatever he was saying.

Hey Alex!

So how's it going so far in LA for ya? I go into town often and would love to meet you at some point. Considering moving back to Malibu, but not for at least a year. Anywho, I'll give you a shout out when I head out that way and let you know - hopefully you can fit me into your busy schedule. :0)

Have you hit up Tito's Tacos yet (Westside - Washington Place/Sepulveda)? I could live off of their bean and cheese burritos! (In fact, when I lived blocks from there, I did!! !). Num nums.

Hope all is well, brother.

L.A. is mostly full of ordinary people, just like everywhere else.

most of the negativity directed toward the people here is from people who do not live here.
I've been here all my life. This is the land of fruits, nuts, and flakes. Don't get me started. All I can say in our favor is that every place has its problems, and there must be some reason I haven't yet fled. Yes, I appreciate salad bars, mild weather, some cultural amenities, good access to a lot of places and stuff. But the kookery is a bit overwhelming. Criminals, pseudointellectuals that consider themselves intellectuals, perverts, morons, more criminals, lunatics, politicians, lawyers, celebrities, wannabe celebrities, celebrity impersonators, bums, addicts, valley girls, illegal aliens, space aliens, conspirators, people working in the entertainment industry, people trying to break into the entertainment industry...I'm trying to think if I've ever seen an ordinary person here anywhere under any circumstances. Let me get back to you on that.
