The City of Angels. That’s the stereotype that the Hollywood industry promoted here. At first sight, this city gave me the impression that here you have a constant reminder to succeed no matter what. Like Red Hot Chili Peppers say in their famous song: “It’s understood that Hollywood sells Californication”.
Thinking more about how Los Angeles is portrayed in the movies, I got to the conclusion that this is the world in a nutshell. Facebook era taught us to carefully select the best pictures and videos in order to portray the perfect life. Not necessary a bad thing, since, in life, you have to focus on the positive side. Why would you want to share with the world your everyday’s struggles?
So put on a smile, and keep dreaming …
P.S. : Speaking of Californication, ever since I watched the TV series I dreamed of visiting Venice Beach. I guess dreams come true eventually!
