"Hollywooding" or "getting Hollywooded" is the act of a person involved in creative arts at a production level (music producer/studio technician, filmmakers, et al) making excuses in similar fashion as a man buying a sports car or big house to compensate for having a tiny penis.
"That dingus just sent an email saying those tracks we're mixing will be late because his Dropbox maxed out when he was recording (insert semi-noteworthy band's name)."

"That pleb seriously Hollywooded you? He can't even edit a cymbal properly."

This word is usually used in past tense, as the occurance is almost never spoken of until after it happens.

The instance of one inviting another to a casual lunch, dinner, drinks - and then not following through with it. The invitation is nothing and carries no weight, it is said merely to be fashionable.

The term comes from shady Hollywood agents to invite their clients out to make them feel like a priority, however they plan to flake all along on the plans. Nowadays, the term can be used by anyone - friends, "soccer moms," and lead-singer band guys.

Also see "flake" and "hollywood promise"
