Bravely maintaining the counter-culture aesthetic

VIDEO: THE HIPSTER OLYMPICS


This was a new diversion for me this afternoon, thanks to my equally-bored-at-work sister. Hard to say which made me laugh harder: the "spontaneous, yet well-composed" (ideally from the point of view of an anonymous, third-party photographer) MySpace profile photo contest, or the Music Collection Brag-A-Thon, where it's a neck and neck race to pick the band you liked before they sold out and got popular. Divine.

Ha! I especially like the 'who can make an ordinary guy feel inferior first' contest.

For a whole season of hipster antics, try the Internet sitcom, The Burg.

Thanks.
