Regarding the TitleThe title of the zine series is from a Harrison Ford quote:
Los Angeles is where you have to be if you want to be an actor.You have no choice. You go there or New York. I flipped a coin about it. It came up New York, so I flipped again. When you're starting out to be an actor, who wants to go where it's cold and miserable and be poor there?
