It’s the Hipster Rescue Society of Silverlake and Abbot Kinney: for just ten cents a day, you, too, can help buy new cigar pants for a hip kid in need. Some of these hipsters have extremely limited access to their trust funds; others just haven’t gotten their band’s demo CD to the right people yet. Whatever the reason for their mooching, Bohemian-vagabond lifestyle, these hip kids need our help. Because, let’s face it, Whole Foods is expensive, and so are vintage plastic glasses frames, and tousled bedhead hair cuts. So, please, give a little and receive the gift of smug coolness in return.

It's So Cal is a space where I will comment upon the fascinating and baffling desert in which I live, Southern California. The name comes from one of the greatest movie lines in one of the greatest movies of all time, which also takes place in Southern California, Chinatown. My version: "Forget it, Stacey. It's So Cal."
