I Love LA

March 24th, 2009 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

So I’m on Craigslist looking for work (My career is on FIRE) and I come across this:

New Reality Show Calling Actors!! (los angeles)
Date: 2009-03-24, 11:17AM PDT

A New Reality Show is in pre-production and is calling ALL Talented Actors!!
We are looking for talented actors who have given up on their dreams. We want to know WHY, WHO, WHAT caused you to stop pursuing your passions.

We’re looking for heartfelt, truthful, and out of the ordinary stories.
Please submit one headshot and a brief story (not more than 3 paragraphs)
explaining your circumstances. We’re excited to hear from you!
We have a great crew, set, and team and are starting to cast in the next two weeks!

Look forward to hearing from you….


So basically it’s a reality show about how your dream has been crushed by LA?

Have you failed? Are you ready to admit defeat and shuffle off back to middle America? Well before you do, let us showcase your failure on the world stage. Instead of just being a washout to your friends and family, you can be known as a washout by whomever watches our crappy show!

Oh…one thing…you’ll have to compete with other washouts just to get on our show. So it’s possible that you could be failure at being a washout. What’s that taste in your mouth? That’s bitterness…or that gun barrel your eating.

    Wow… they’ve hit the jackpot with this one! I would so watch this show! I HATE reality TV, but a show about people’s inner children dying a horrible death as they watch everything they’ve dreamed of and hoped for dying in a fire? Yeah…. I could get into that.

    So, are you not that far gone yet, Tim, or have you FedExed your headshot…hope it’s the former, BTW… 🙂

    God I hate reality TV shows. I have a soft spot in my heart for American Chopper but other than that, as far as I’m concerned anybody involved with those shows can be driven off a cliff. Just make sure to take away there camera’s first cause they will want to film the fall and the splat if they can first. Big old bag of douche all of them.

    I’d be careful. They may just be looking for “organ donors”. Maybe I’m just paranoid.

    Imagine my suprise/sadness when I clicked on this article and found out it wasn’t about the hit single “I love LA” by the majestic Randy Newman.


    Also I love how the entry “I love LA” is right above the entry titled “Fuck the city of Los Angeles” on the home page.
