We struggling actresses go from casting office to casting office with one thing in mind: Is there free parking nearby?
At Zydeco studios, in the Valley, with a huge parking lot, there are signs that yell: No Talent Parking! with a note taped to the door: IF YOU PARKED IN THIS LOT YOU WILL BE TOWED! NO TALENT PARKING!
Okay, okay, jeez. We get it.
So when you have an audition in Beverly Hills, and see this sign:
it hurts your head.
When I first came to LA, I accompanied a friend to a Scientologist mixer where some famous person spoke about parking and how if she just said, "Okay, I am going to find a great parking space!" she would! It's positive thinking to the Xenu-th degree.
May the parking fairies always be with you, may you always have dimes, nickels, and quarters, and may you never get your car towed from 4-7pm in anti-gridlock zones.
