Hey guys. I've finally had it. I need to get out of the US. I would like to relocate to either Germany or Canada (preferably Montreal or Quebec. And yes, I know enough French to get by). I am a Senior Art Director in advertising and I have some professional acting experience as well. Anybody here willing to sponsor me in Canada or Germany? ~Shard~ or Diatribe you guys come to mind right away as far as advice goes, but hey I'm open anything. Help me out. I had a realization last night after seeing a spectacle I NEVER want to see again. Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston went to a Cubs game here in Chicago. Afterwards, they had the premiere of their new film at the Music Box Theater. I happened to be near the theater at the grocery store and I must say- I have never seen so many idiots in my life. I mean, come on! It wasn't Madonna, Bowie or God! I think all the bleach in the US was used on the heads of every girl in front of the theater and the street was blocked off due to the crowd. It was a parade of fools. Now, I realize the empty-headed exist everywhere, but the US has more than our fair share! Don't get me wrong- I love Chicago. But it's going down the tubes fast. When I moved here 14 years ago, there were no corporate coffee shops, restaurants or yuppies. Now it's a Starbucks, Gap or McDonalds on every damn corner and yups everywhere. I moved here to get away from that crap! My beloved city is turning into Disneyland. Having traveled across the US, it's becoming increasingly apparent to me that everywhere is becoming the same, even NYC (Manhattan, the island of white people). Los Angeles is still semi-OK, but I don't want to live there- too damn hot and you have to have a car. So -any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance. BTW- this is not a joke. I'm quite serious.
