Tales of Gentrification
By Nathan Castellanos
105 Pages, 8” x 10”, Paperback
Miguel Lyons continues to weather the gentrification invasion of Los Angeles, watching the city he grew up in becoming a daycare center for the countries "affluent class" of art majors, hipsters, trust fund kids and inter-dimensional reptiles. Lydia is sick of the FAKE NERD culture that has invaded her job doing public relations and marketing research for P4, the one stop channel for all your watered down "nerdy" needs.
Welcome to The Leash, Los Angeles premier club for all culture aficionados, eager to dip their feet into the not so grimy underworld of scripted and played out goth/punk rock costume culture; get "spooky" for the night.......window shop the proletariat culture for awhile........before heading back to that $3000 a month DTLA loft.
Other adventures in this issue include reptilian "make up" techniques, the beauty of "celebrity" food trucks, and Ewok Enemas.
