According to B.R. Meyers over at The Atlantic, there is a scourge of foodies looming over America. Foodies are bad because they fly to Vietnam for pho. All of them do, which is evil. But even if they stopped doing that, Meyers would still be mad because he hates that people enjoy food at all. Anthony Bourdain is the devil for encouraging people to love cooking, Michael Pollan is evil for making the elitist claim that fast food is bad for us.
Who said hipster tattoos had to be ironic? When you’re sporting a Debbie Harry or a Edie Sedgwick portrait on your arm or leg, you’re practically screaming out your allegiances to the rest of the world — or Brooklyn’s Bedford Avenue, whichever is deemed more important. I’m just surprised a Webster tattoo didn’t get a gig in this awesome collection compiled by our friends at Flavorpill. But I guess he’s just way too 1980s.
Not since the UGG has there been a shoe that is both equal parts comfy and ugly. Worishofer’s Granny Sandals are the newest favorite of the young celeb hipster set. With fans like indie-queen Maggie Gyllenahaal and Michelle Williams, the German-made sandal is made of the softest leathers and small wedge heel. Pair it with [...]
Karol Grygoruk, acting as the Pepper Pirate, takes pictures of hipsters and strangers amidst the coolest spots in Warszawa. He catches the dark side of the city and the colorful people who sin there.
It takes an alert photographer to capture no-frills, naturalistic images such as those by Brooklyn-based Youngna Park. There’s an honesty about her work that’s refreshing amid the highly-produced, big-budget styles and the overly-stylized hipster verite that abounds these days.
The people on Unhappy Hipsters sure do look lonely in their beautifully designed habitats, but I’m even more confused by what people mean when they use the term ‘hipster’ — do hipsters wear sandals and khaki shorts? I’m not sure hipsters can even afford Dwell-worthy homes, let alone maintain their minimalist decor.
We’ve noticed an overwhelming number of hipster kids being photographed in need of the bathroom. The usual traits are legs crossed, feet turned in, desperation in the eye and holding on tight. It looks like we’re not the only ones. Hipsters Have To Pee is a photo-blog documenting the hilarity.
From the various responses I got from my previous post about hipster hate being misguided, most people defined a hipster as people who are very young (let’s say below 25), live off of their parents, and don’t contribute to the scene they glom onto. The problem I have with this is that in my personal experience, this is not how most people define hipsters.
I’m sick of people deriding hipsters. It seems to me, the people most vehemently anti-hipster doth protest too much. What exactly makes us so uneasy about everything the term ‘hipster’ embodies? Many people will spout off some drivel about class, gentrification, and such. But at best, most of these explanations seem like after-the-fact, cobbled-together excuses to maintain an irrational prejudice.
