I’m lucky enough to live and work between Darlinghurst and Surry Hills, among the hippest and most desirable parts of Sydney. But I have to say, I’ve had just about enough of this ‘hipster’ craze, where everything either has holes in it, has been deconstructed, is worn super-loose or ultra-tight (I can never get it […]
A few years ago, I accidentally sold six Beatles records (in mint condition) for $1 each at a garage sale. I’ve always wondered what might’ve happened had I not sold them, along with all the other records I sold that day. Maybe I’d have a gigantic vinyl collection. Maybe, just maybe, I’d have a record […]
Well, this pretty much says it all. Clothing designers Bad Taste Factory tap into the hipster mystique for their latest graphic tee. Complete with plaid, beard, and hatchet, we’re pleased to offer this gem in the Lost At E Minor store.
Asheville is a ridiculous little Appalachian Mountain town in Western North Carolina. This website is a hilarious on-going compilation of gifs specific to life there. This site reminds me of the show Portlandia; you don’t have to live there to be in on the joke. Anyone who’s ever spent time in a hip oasis town […]
Do you find yourself struggling to fight apathy, the desire to be vegan, and the need to put a mustache or bird on everything? Have you lost your drive? Are you chronically unhygienic? Do you have the urge to take frequent trips to the Apple store? Do you experience turrets-like symptoms of constantly babbling about […]
Paper Mag pointed us to Kindling Quarterly, a new magazine that celebrates fatherhood and hipster dads, with a comment that it’s ‘kind of cute and very well designed, even if it’s laughably Brooklyn (e.g., every dad pictured has facial hair and is sporting flannels and/or Steven Alan sweaters)’. Hmm, ukeleles, warm portraits lit by natural daylight, whimsical homes… yep, very hipster indeed — and gorgeous too.
Hipster readers, Goodreads has just the thing for you if you can’t think of what to read. The tricky thing is that you have to read David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest before you can get any book recommendations at all. Then again, you can be ironic. Who says you have to be honest?
As an exercise in logo examination, I re-branded popular animated shows from the twentieth century as they would look if designed to market themselves as a hipster fashion label.
When it comes to being a hipster, Australian Patrick ticks all the boxes. He is a skinny white boy living in the hood (well, Redfern, Sydney). He’s a part-time DJ, full-time social photographer, and the wearer of ironic T-shirts and ironic shorts. He’s the bearer of ironic tattoos and the rider of an ironic bicycle.
On my last trip to the beautiful party island of Ibiza last summer, I discovered a label named Bonk Ibiza which represents handmade bags. This version of tote bag is by far the most stylish and unique I’ve seen. The special thing about it is that it’s not only the specific print, but also the braided carriers: powerful fluoro colors make it innovative and desirable. So far these bags are available only in Ibiza’s clothing store, More, but they can now be ordered online as well.
Ultimate Fanj is a new comedy web series that has been selected as a finalist in the Movie Extra Webfest competition. It’s a story of love gone wrong, the danger of exclusivity, and the power of friendship to overcome the obstacles of cool. But above all else, it is a celebration of the fanj culture […]
Heeb magazine founder Jennifer Bleyer recently interviewed me for an article about young creative types on food stamps. The editors at Salon.com decided that I am a hipster. I don’t really know what that means. Judging by the comments that the article generated, I’m some sort of lazy bum who can’t give up my artisinal chevre. I don’t need to go into detail defending my food choices, but all I’d like to say is that I try to buy healthy foods at the lowest prices. I never eat out. I love to cook, and I really need to control what goes into my food, so I cook every meal for myself. I often share with friends. I want to be healthy and I want my friends to be healthy because none of us have health care.
