Someone awesome posted Tangents & the Times’ Marissa A. Ross’s pretentious “Thief Promotional Video” on latfh.com (Look at This Fucking Hipster.com.) I love the tagline under the video: “The key to promoting Vietnam-themed Apocalypse art shows is my own brand of narcissistic drunken blathering.” The reason I’m posting this is because I’ve been telling that broad that she’s a hipster for years, only to have her scoff at my claims.
But look, if you:
a.) Live in Echo Park, Los Feliz, Silverlake
b.) Listen to bands like “Fuck Buttons”
c.) Wear “ironic” Nike pumps (extra points if they’re neon) from the 90’s
d.) Make shitty youtube videos highlighting your elitist hipster ideology
then you’re a fucking hipster. Just saying.

In other news:
The Standard hotel in Los Angeles has become the first place in America where you can purchase boardshorts from a vending machine ($75.) Quiksilver has teamed up with the hipster locale to bring back their retro fit boardshorts. The Standard hosts a popular pool party every Sunday, so the promotion makes sense. They come in four (4) styles, one for each of the Standard’s four locations:
My personal favorite is the “Hollywood”, but every girl I’ve talked to has told me they’re ugly. All the chicks I’ve shown this to are into the “Miami.” The Miami would be cool if surf wax didn’t destroy white boardshorts. Oh well.
Update: Five days ago, I posted a blog detailing my exploits in poverty. Well, I am pleased to announce that I began receiving unemployment again, applied for a financial position at a high-profile healthcare agency, and have initiated contact with a client on a huge group coverage program which could potentially net me tens of thousands of dollars. Aint it nice how quickly things turn around?
