BLURB

Hell's Kitchen, man. Does anyone stop and think about how ironic some neighborhoods' names are nowadays? Little Italy ran out of Italians and Hell's Kitchen is full of pussies. It's like they are epitaphs of themselves. Funny how what once used to be synonymous with lowlife trash and organized crime is now the crawling grounds for 20-something WASPy kids who have fucking potlucks and bring shit like quinoa and wash their dishes with gluten-free dish soap, while patting themselves on the back for living somewhere more “authentic.” Well, no point in being sore about it I guess, just got to adapt. Maybe it's time to start thinking about capitalizing on this, like opening a studio that lets you bring your dog to yoga or a shop that sells novelty kitchenware. Those thin-skinned jerk offs will eat that shit up. [Jackson McHugh]
