It's not easy, because I’m never satisfied with my work. I have so many ideas, so many things I want to do - but to bring them into reality, into the physical universe, is the hard part.
I’m still settling in here, but L.A. seems to be a very good place for work ethics.
And if you want to observe the state that western civilization is in and if you want to watch the Roman Empire fall again - in slow motion, this is the place.
- Around the corner, a few blocks from here, there are hundreds and thousands of homeless who wander and lie in the streets talking to themselves. Then, in other parts, you have the richest and most beautiful, artificial creatures that plastic surgery can create. You have everything here. Maybe L.A, is a theme-park - "Planet Earth"
It seems as if any culture, social and ethnic group has a small fragment of it here in L.A.
And I really like that peaceful anarchy. Here you can find the most stupid and superficial individuals and the most amazing and ingenious. There are also probably more different religions here than anywhere on the planet.
Maybe this is the only place with actual total freedom of religion. You can believe whatever you want. You can be a member of the Church of Satan, a Korean Presbyterian, a Hasidic Jew walking with a big fur-hat exactly as they did in the 18th Century in Eastern Europe, or a Black Muslim,.. nobody gives a shit.
And I think L.A. is a proof that people don’t need to be controlled and restricted all the time. They are usually not dangerous, and if you leave them alone they can handle their shit themselves. It’s okay to be whatever you want to be, and to believe in whatever you want to.
Another thing I like here is that you can vanish so easily, - if you want to get off the radar-screen be invisible just stop making noise, stop going out and within a week people wouldn't even remember that you ever existed. It's so easy here to walk out of existence - this city doesn't have a memory.
