Yes, but that will have a negative effect on the economy and city. Broke hopeless delusional people all moving to one city in hopes of being the next big thing only to end up with nothing but financial issues and broken dreams.

I agree, but I think I'm all over the place with what I'm trying to say.

There are so many hopefuls who dream of moving to LA and NYC because they are aware that those two cities are filled with stars that started off like them.
Sorry but that's @ss backwards. Star hopefuls move to Los Angeles and New York City because that's where the movie and television studios are and thus where they can find work. If Jay Z decided to move to Houston we are not going to start getting a wave of people moving here. Especially not in this economy. People typically move to where they can find work. Not where they can be around some celebrities. If I was an aspiring actor I'm not going to move to Miami just because a bunch of celebrities have homes there and like to party there. I would move to Los Angeles because that's where most of the movie and television studios are. Is this starting to make sense SouthernBoy?

I don't think Texas carries that image and I'm glad it doesn't. They wont live here but I'm sure they will visit quite often. Houston nightlife is pretty hype.

We are almost saying the same thing. However, I said if word got out that Jay Z has opened a nightclub in Houston, I think it will attract more people to the area because of that. There are many star strucked people in America. SN: I promise I'm not one of them.

that is why so many young folks ending up selling themselves on the streets in those cities.

wide eyes young bucks thinking they are going to live the glamorous life but end up becoming a two dollar hooker.

Southernboy a little advice: go to an economically prosperous city, work you ass off figuratively so that you don't have to do it literally in those flashy cities. Then the money you make you can take trips to those flashy areas and enjoy yourself there.

Yeah, you are so true. Thanks for the advice. However, I didn't ask the question in my regards, I asked out of curiosity because I feel like, from what I've seen, so much talent and beauty come out of Houston, but the talent leaves to other places. Basically, I'm trying to ask, when will Houston realize its talented people and find a way to keep its own talent and in the long run attract new talent?

I have had so many friends move there broke as hell and think they are going to live it up like Kim, and after 6 Months come back running with their tails between their legs, never having partied with Kim and a lot broker than when they left
Hahahaha. Which is why when I hear people say they want to move to NYC or the east coast, I ask them if the have east coast money $$$$$$

Because most can't afford a new house there, rent is a mortgage here, and I haven't even gotten to taxes

I love the east coast,but unless you're really positioned well financially,life can be super fast, and the ultimate rat race to just simply live. Depending on 'how' you want to live.


I always say it's the people who watch alot of Sex in The City or worse Friends. They think they can all work at Starbucks and have a sweet studio apartment in the heart of Manhattan.
