And without further ado, AHDM4U’s Travel Issue.
AHDM4U DOES LA: In the first of a four-part video series on our recent trip to the City of Angels, visual artist Adam Stamp guides us through visits to the Church of Scientology’s Hollywood property holdings. Billion year fidelity oaths, security on three-wheeled Segways? Prepare to get paranoid.
Music writer Andre Torrez reflects his time as a queer Mexican American crashing with a hetero, verbal DF punk band.
AHDM4U DOES LA: The Dog Show’s Tina and Anna do it all, from building a glittering lavender cave in Echo Park full of their vintage clothes and potions to giving top-notch advice for the young and directionless. AHDM4U stops by for some wise words … and to shop.
When we heard our favorite cub-about-town was visiting his hometown New Orleans for the first time since moving to SF, we wanted in. Akrum Salem gives you Nola in its magic hour — featuring booger drag, ghosts, and stick n pokes in progress.
COMING THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31
AHDM4U DOES LA: The shoes. The shoes.
AHDM4U DOES LA: Artist Ben Woozy has left the Bay Area’s long party nights only to resurface as AHDM4U’s healthy living correspondent in sunny LA. Hollywood’s trendiest vape bar is the site of his search for the perfect accessory for his mission to quit smoking cigs.
