The Hipster Hobby Generator

Looking for new ways to use your copious amounts of free time? Getting a little tired of your kickball league and microbrew tasting club? Not to worry — cartoonist Dana Zemack has created The Hipster Hobby Generator to help you discover your new favorite pastime. All you have to do is click on the quirky label of the hand-blown mason jar, and the site will assign you a new, hipster-approved creative endeavor. So far my hobbies include thrift store quilting, making foraged mustache necklaces, assembling an “heirloom maple syrup collection inspired by the Infinite Jest Wikipedia page,” and aging bacon bow ties in vintage style oak barrels from Anthropologie. Sounds about right. Check out The Hipster Hobby Generator to get your own, and post it in the comments!

Watch This: A Spot-On Rundown Of The Regulars At Every Hipster Coffee Shop

Hipster Coffee Shop Parody
"I'm writing a novel."

This parody of all the most obnoxious customers who frequent hipster coffee shops might seem a little out there (an aged Sumatra roast is served in a desk fountain, and Michael Caine shows up at one point), but for anyone who’s ever worked at a coffee shop, you know the caricatures are painfully accurate. I must say, though, that I totally relate to the guy who brings in his entire desktop computer and then spends the whole day sheepishly requesting an outlet and free refills. As someone who spends quite a few work days at coffee shops, I feel you, bro. [YouTube]

Making Fun Of Hipsters: It Just Never Gets Old

"I Just Cruise Around Town In A Vintage Wheelchair ..."

There’s a dark period in my life that I don’t walk about very much. It’s the time when I lived in a Brooklyn neighborhood called Bushwick. You’ve probably seen it on “Girls.” Fittingly, my roommate then worked at American Apparel. It was a brief but memorably terrible time of warehouses, leotards and constantly feeling squicky about gentification. In addition to my genuine disgust at their CEO Dov Charney, I have pretty much avoided going into an American Apparel ever since. This video from Second City Network is a reminder why. [YouTube]

October is country music month — what better time to spread some love for a genre that’s adored by half the country and reviled by the other? Country music is a pretty standard life soundtrack if you live in the South or any rural area, but if you live in a city, especially a super liberal, quinoa-eating, Ralph Nader-voting, Arcade Fire-worshiping one (ahem, Portland), being a country fan can be pretty lonely. In fact, when I lived in Portland, I was convinced I hated country until a couple of my friends basically forced me to listen to it. Now I live in Nashville. Coincidence? Kind of. Mostly. But really, I love country music and am always excited and perhaps overly willing to convince other people to love it too. Wondering how to get your hipster friends on board the country train? Here are some tips… Keep reading »

Gillette Is Fed Up With Unshaven Hipsters

Hipsters get hated on all the time for everything from their weird shoes to their insistence that they knew about every cool thing before it was cool, but they’ve recently come under fire for a very specific reason: their trendy beards are cutting into razor sales. Yep, razor makers like Gillette and Schick have seen sales slip in recent years, and market research indicates that “the vogue for stubble” and “growing acceptance of the unshaven look” are partially to blame.

"Do you like music or what? Cos I do. The obscure kind."

“Bros” is a new series by some bros, in which they parody “Girls” in only the vaguest of terms. There are four bros who suddenly realize that by dressing like a bro’s version of a hipster, they can score hot hipster chicks. Where or how this is otherwise related to “Girls” is beyond me, but if you’re jonesing to see men in glitter shirts and cutoffs, well, this is the video for you. [YouTube]
