LAist scours dozens of LA metro weeklies and highlights the best content you may have missed. We read the weeklies so you don't have to.

CityBeat gives well-deserved props to 26-year-old Bel-Air native, Alexander Antebi. Earlier this month, Antebi became the youngest, first American, and first Jewish moustache champion in the history of the World Beard and Moustache Championships. Antebi is also the, uh, face man, of LA glam-funkers Conquistador. Still gotta problem with facial hair, LA? Also, Steve Appleford interviews the always fuckin' hilarious George Carlin about life in LA.

LA Weekly's Daniel Hernandez discovers Santería in Hollywood and later questions the departure of LA Times assistant managing editor Janet Clayton. Who's responsible for all of these bad moves at the Times? The 26-year-old Hernandez blew in and out of the Times nearly as quickly as his tenure at the Weekly, which we learned this week will be pre-empted for a book project. And, yes, the Weekly is still offering staff positions in Cleveland.
