I was listening to the radio last week. It was Kevin and Bean on KROQ as I was on my way to work.

Their Entertainment Correspondent, Ralph was giving off a list of TV actors along with how much they earn in a year or an episode. The numbers were amazing and I thought, “That’s why this town is full of actors.” But it’s not always just about the money. I have a good friend who happens to be a playwrite and an actor. The man loves and audience. It’s in his blood. But he complains that all of the Hollywood actors stink and that they hire the worst people possible on purpose. He says it’s the only way to reach the demographic. He’s a pretty smart guy but I might disagree with him. They could most likely find worse actors out there.

Maybe what he means is that he wants to see actors out there who really respect the craft, who are doing it for all the right reasons, not just for the money or the fame, but for the art. He also complains that Theatre has become to stagnant, too complacent and maybe he’s right. I was looking at a chart about how music has also become more homogenized and another chart showing how the major corporations have consolidated the Media industry down to a very select few. The same news stories heard all over the country with the same headlines, pretending to be different suppliers of news, all under one giant brain. Where am I going with this? I’m not sure. Food for thought, that is all. Anyways, I’ve gotta go, I’ve got blogs to write! Please feel free to contact us here. (323) 424-9309
