Overview

Techno Head Artie Q is in his late twenties still pursuing an elusive music career-"an imprisonnable offense" in his native London-and with a bag full of dreams and a catalog of songs, heads to LA to take the music world by storm. However, with the rent due and bills to pay, he is forced to find work, and LA's moving industry provides an inexhaustible supply. Artie, a keen observer of human nature is fascinated by the strange new world in which he is embroiled-"a twilight parallel universe" full of whacky characters. Believing that actions reveal people's true intention and nature, he begins to document and analyze the bizarre behavior of the moving men he encounters. Artie Q: not a professional therapist, but an amused armchair analyst, nonetheless!
For the first half of the book his somewhat detached observations concern the individual stories of others, but by the second half it becomes an ensemble piece with Artie fighting to keep his creative dreams alive, and proving that he may just be "the whackiest of the whackiest."

    A great read, I recommend downloading to day to take to the beach tomorrow.

    This was such an entertaining book, a roller coaster ride of emotions. The characters really set the pace. The writer takes the time to understand what they are all about and even rates each mover as he see them. A realistic book on the trials and tribulations of being a mover in LA, not only funny but heart warming. Don't miss out on a very special book.

    Los Angeles, often called the City of Angels, is also called La-

    Los Angeles, often called the City of Angels, is also called La-la Land -- and for good reason. It has long been a magnet for those seeking fame and fortune, or just a chance for a new start amidst palm trees and sunshine. Thus, anyone spending a substantial amount of time in Los Angeles soon becomes aware of a unique, often eccentric, primary culture, and (perhaps) also some rather strange sub-cultures. Artie Q, an aspiring musician, found himself in one of these sub-cultures when he became a moving man in order to pay the rent. Being more astutely observant than most, as well as possessing a solid work ethic, Artie Q figured if he was going to do the job, he might as well do it right. Not all his co-workers were of the same mind. In fact, many of them were in their own personal la-la lands. Artie’s memoir of this time in his life is devilishly funny, but also thoughtful, and thought provoking, as he chronicles these characters and his interactions with them. I highly recommend this book for the great writing, the hilarity, the chance to get to know Artie Q, and the opportunity to see a side of Los Angeles you may never before have noticed. You’ll have a rollicking good time -- and will never look at movers the same way again.
