“The idea of an "artistic community" evaporates into the slow days. Inspiration and words like that get hurried along with the fast company; it's impossible to tell if one's been inspired, or if it was the cocaine, or what. In an Italian café—where one day the incredibly beautiful young waitresses are going to poison (I hope) one by one all the vulgar and insulting men who've ever gotten away with murder and crude remarks—one night I saw on the wall, neatly, in black Magic Marker: "It ain't Hollywood, my boy, it's mescalito." In Los Angeles it's hard to tell if you're dealing with the real true illusion or the false one.”
