How does the humpy dork differ from the geek? Geeks are insufferable. What makes the dorkus better is that he isn’t fully aware of his charms . . . Wouldn’t you say that it’s the dynamic of perfection prevailing over scar tissue that makes the humpy dork a veritable prodigal son? . . . Dorks rarely toot their own horn the way geeks have a tendency to do.

There’s no question that L.A. has style to spare, from red-carpet razzle-dazzle to stoner surf chic and everything in between. More than anyplace else, the iconoclast rules . . . There are nearly as many definitions of what L.A. style is as there are people who live here. With enough confidence and
the right attitude, just about anything goes.
