What would it take to ensnare a Williamsburg hipster? Not much, by the looks of it. Jeff Greenspan and Hunter Fine have set up a series of Hipster Traps in Manhattan and Brooklyn, with some sure-fire lures to entice even the most wary of tattooed baristas. The bait? A Holga 120N camera, some fluoro sunglasses, a yellow bicycle chain, a can of PBR, and a pack of American Spirits. Damn, I’m getting tempted myself.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
