naughtyrev: "I wore an ombre top bun throughout my 20s, but then the pickler at my co-op was like, 'Didn't I see you in that 30 Seconds to Mars video?' At that point I was like, 'OK: what's next?' " said Jude Loving, who runs his own cassette-only music label and can be seen powdering his billowing horsehair wig with arsenic-laden powder in a three-second video posted to the micro experience-sharing app Twine. "Also, I'm balding."

The staggering amount of fail contained within this passage leaves me hoping that it can only be satire.


I've got great news for you, my reading comprehension lackluster friend: it, the piece, is, in fact, satire.

Lorelle: FlashHarry: i assume the pince-nez will return next.

A few weeks ago I went to Silver Lake, a hipster-infested L.A. neighborhood, and saw lotsa people wearing huge black-framed glasses, both prescription and sunglasses. I don't recall seeing any monocles or pince-nez glasses, though.


There was some pretty chunky black eye wear on display at the oscars as well. Marty and Beth Scorsasie really pulled them off the best in a Jewish Grandmother kind of way.

WTF is wrong with these people?  I can handle the monocle and the powdered wig, but why on earth would you want to revive the cassette tape?  It was the worst way to store music and it sounds like crap.  Farking idiots.


Magnetic tape is, in some ways, worse than vinyl records.
Carefully stored a vinyl record will not degrade unless played with a contact stylus (there are laser readers that do not touch the record, FYI).
A tape will degrade just sitting there. It's unavoidable and unstoppable. It's physics. You cannot stop it.

nope, not that.

Just a new trend with hipsters of dressing like normal people. There was an article about it last week or so.

I have always hated magnetic tape.  The range is ridiculous and the sound is soft.  I've heard other stories of people trying to keep tape alive and I could never wrap my head around why anyone would ever do that.  I can understand the case for vinyl.  The sound is bright and crisp if you can handle the minor pops which come up.  But tape?  Muddy shiat sound.

I have never heard of the laser readers.  I'm going to look into that now.  Thanks.

I really don't care about hipsters or not, just commenting on the new fashion trend. Or whatever. Just be yourself. And if you want to wear a monocle then knock yourself out.

I'd be more than glad to set up a boutique for this cool trend. I'd charge half price to Hipsters. Hell, I'd pay THEM to allow me to do the procedure.

Calm down, Bugsy


Yes, but before you know it the surviving hipsters would search out a trendy, exclusive skull-crusher that you have probably never heard of.

That wasn't very funny. Your wordplay was pretty obvious and so it fell flat. Don't get me wrong, you haven't offended me personally, but it offends me as someone who appreciates cleverness. I mean, really, dude? Try harder next time. Also, was that even in English?
