    My sister lives in OC. Some people dig the LA area but it's just not for me personally.

    I like Studio City. My friends Scott and Brooke live in Sherman Oaks, but they have a house already (screenwriter and Bravo producer, respectively).

    Ah. That explains the slave wage. Okay. The most livable places in L.A. aren't advertised, they go by word of mouth. Have you tried asking around at work if someone knows of/has a room you can rent? See if there's a message board at your gym, too. Church/temple/synagogues and housing offices at community colleges are another place to check (try PCC).

    I see. Well, if you're getting into the industry that's the place to do it I guess. I didn't know that you had plans, was just assuming it might be a random move for a "new start" or one of those type deals. My aunt works in the industry as an ADR editor. Awesome lady.

    No way near there yet. I am moving at the end of September. I will make some calls to people I know from Temple's Film program who are out there now, though.

    Screw San Francisco. That place has traffic that puts Los Angeles to shame and costs many times more. I once considered a job there, but couldn't accept the amount a company that has been running for a couple years at a loss would have to pay me to live there. I told them to call me when they were profitable, because it was too much of a gamble for me...

    Los Angeles is crazy (congestion/traffic/people/etc), which is why I opted for San Diego when I considered moving back to California. The weather is better here, anyhow.

    Have you also factored in driving costs? Gas is expensive and you must drive so much that cars need to be replaced fairly regularly. Don't think surface streets will save you from traffic, either.

    Los Angeles isn't much better at $600 a month. I couldn't fathom living anywhere in the greater Los Angeles area on less than 90-100k, unless I had a completely free place to live.

    For $600 a month? Is this a joke?

    Yeah, but they're also pretty pricey. I don't think many places in either area would be within his range.

    This is true of the vast majority of California. Down here the nicest places with the best rent invariably find new tenants by word-of-mouth and are never advertised. Anything good (price/quality/location) that is advertised is rented within a very brief period of time, often within hours.

    San Francisco, worser traffic than L.A.? You kidding me? SF is up there, it's horrible but nothing like the horror of LA.

    Maybe across the bay, but not in town. Let's not forget tolls, either...

    I suppose the upshot is that the BART system is very usable, unlike the RTD. You can't really get anywhere on mass transit in Los Angeles because it's so spread out.
