Today I got a call from one of my favorite clients.  You know the one you really like, who you’ve had drinks and laughs with and who, after five years of working together, you’re confident that everything is solid between you both?

Well imagine my surprise when I realized she was calling to tell me that they were coming to L.A. for a shoot and they were NOT going to hire me. Smack!  WTF??

When you're hot you're hot and when you're not you're not.

Hey all you slightly depressed, despair dabbling, should I get a job at Whole Foods thinking free-lancers...here you are again.  Or should I say here I am again!  Not working, pitching projects, doing budgets and wondering if I will ever work in this town again. Sound familiar?
