Vive La Venice Revolucion!

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We didn't pay much attention when LA Observed discussed the rise of The Los Angeles Lunar Society and their apparent spokeswoman, Theresa Duncan, but over the weekend, under the Harvest Moon, they became LAist's favorite local community organization. The Society is advocating the secession of Venice from LA and will revolt to do it if necessary. Thankfully, though, all members of the society involved in film work of any kind won't have to join active revolutionary status, should it come to that, so that Hollywood can continue its quest for world cultural domination unfettered.

Now if only we can get invited to the next initiation rites and get in on some of those cognac-navel cocktails.
