Las Vegas deals in money, New York deals in deals, but LA deals in sin.


Ummmm, no.

New York deals in money. It's all about the Brokers, the Bankers, Wall Street, Goldman-Sachs and the lawyers and other parasites which follow around huge amounts of money.

Las Vegas deals in sin. It isn't a high-finance town. There are no stock exchanges or financiers. Las Vegas is about gambling, sex and alcohol. The place has no other business. It's designed to separate the herd from its money as efficiently as possible. The casinos crush any entertainment which they don't own. Get too lucky and they'll ban you without paying off your winnings. Greed. Lust. Pride and selling you back your own adrenaline.

In Los Angeles, or at least in Hollywood, it's all about the deal. Who do you know? What do you have? What's your project? How much of a cut do you need to make this happen? Lots of people can say "No". How do you find the person who can say "Yes"?
