‘It’s called living in a big city’

My uncle was a surgeon in New York City during the bad days before Giuliani in the 1990s. He would tell me the story of one of his interns – back in the days. whose car stereo is a common item to steal – had his window smashed and his CD player lifted three or four times.

He eventually gave up and put a sign in his window: “No stereo.” He returned from an overnight shift to find the window had been smashed. “Get stereo,” the note inside reads.

Hypothesis? Perhaps, though I knew my uncle was looking to move back to Los Angeles at the time, having already had enough of a life in New York City. He eventually made it back there, though not to proper Los Angeles.

That’s probably a good thing because, when listening to actors Seth Rogen Tell it, having your car broken down is just part of the exciting life in Los Angeles. Sometimes they will even leave a knife, he said! That’s even better than a “get a stereo” note!

In a Twitter thread Thanksgiving night demonstrated Hollywood celebrities living in a different solar system than ours, Rogen threw a shade at a YouTuber angry at his car being broken into and said, “That’s called living in a big city.”

The whole thing started when vlogger and influencer Casey Neistat — who, to be fair, not Twitter’s William F. Buckley — described having his car broken into: “So the car ours was robbed this morning because Los Angeles is a fixed crime The hole of a 3rd world city but so much appreciation and gratitude to the hardworking officers at @LAPDWestLA who did not only arrested the mother they took back all our stolen goods. ”

Thanks for the update, I guess.

Rogen—star of “Knocked Up,” “The Interview” and pretty much every movie where they need a sort of methodical action figure — feels compelled to defend his fair city: “Dude, I was Been living here for over 20 years. You are crazy haha. It’s lovely here. Don’t put anything of value in it. It’s called living in a big city,” Rogen tweeted.

“I can still be crazy right? feel violated,” Neistat replied.

“You can be mad but I guess personally I don’t see my car as an extension of myself and I have never really felt violated in any of the 15 times my car has broken down. ,” Rogen tweeted.

“Once a guy accidentally left a cool knife in my car, so if it keeps happening you might get a little gift.”

“I did not receive any gifts. He just took the decorations for my daughter’s 7th birthday party and left bloody handprints. serious question; How did you get your car broken into 15 times? Neistat said, Rogen replied that he had “lived in West Hollywood for 20 years and parked on the street.”

By this point, however, people weren’t very interested in the Socratic dialogue between Neistat and Rogen and were more curious as to why one mega-millionaire would speak to another (who may not have been lacking). money, but it’s not. points) to laugh steal as if it were a famous part of life in La-La Land.

“When people talk about celebrities being disconnected from the realities of ordinary people, this is what they are talking about,” wrote user @DBCWriter.

“Protect the quality of life in your city by referring to the 15 times your car has been broken into and your chance of getting free weapons left by criminals, not a protection like you think,” writer and educator Joel Petlin tweeted. “No one should accept lawlessness. Not celebrities like @Sethrogen or anyone.”

Meanwhile, the Liberal Party of New Hampshire has endorsed a definition that Rogen should be familiar with:

Lawyer Matt Bilinsky calls him “an irreparable man without any sense of reality or instinct of goodwill”.

“Only a lowly person like you can complacently dismiss people’s (very valid) concerns about crime and public safety in Los Angeles,” says Bilinsky.

Rogen doesn’t seem to care what this all sounds like: “A lot of people come to me and say bad things on Twitter in the hopes that I’ll interact with them openly and make them feel better.” they noticed, but instead, I criticized them and told them to go private. It’s a lot more fun,” he said tweeted in the aftermath of the kerfuffle. (He did this on purpose to Bilinsky; the lawyer posted the screenshot among DM from Rogen says “no clue who you are but I already know this and I kindly invite you to go on your own. Haha now I’m reading your IG posts and I know who you are. “)

Hollywood has lost touch?

There is a larger lesson here besides the object lesson about the dangers of marijuana use. Since his first appearance on the TV show “Freaks and Geeks” in 1999 at the age of 16, Rogen has been a well-paid driver in the Hollywood machine, no matter how many times he leaves his car outside. way to be robbed. in West Hollywood. Most of us wouldn’t be happy to take a knife out of the deal.

Rogen is one of the lucky few who can fend for themselves the realities of the city going on around them, because they have enough money to pay for failures or money to have abundant safety. . Unlike in Tom Wolfe’s “Bonfire of the Vanities”, the Sherman McCoys will not go astray and suddenly face the grim realities that can befall those who have no money to fight the world.

For those who don’t make millions in the entertainment industry, Los Angeles is an expensive city in an expensive state. When one of LA’s wealthier residents told us we should consider property crime part of the allure of “living in a big city,” it was little wonder why residents Californians are leaving the state again at a big clip. For those who haven’t given up on Golden State, maybe they should consider their own Seth Rogen tweet “stereo notes”.
