propasaurus: When I was a kid, I started noticing that my eyesight was worse in one eye than the other. Being a kid, I thought that meant I'd have to wear a monocle, so I started practicing how to wear one. Which is why today I can raise one eyebrow.


So, that makes you perfect to be either Colonel Klink or Mr. Spock.

A bunch of the hipsters around here are getting fatter and fatter by the week. It's really pathetic to see a skinny jeans muffin top. I like to call them ice cream cones.

"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.

Dead for Tax Reasons: i only wear inuit snow blindness preventing glasses

[ethnology.files.wordpress.com image 243x305]


Are you a lesser villain from an 80s movie? The guy who hangs off the main heavy's shoulder and snickers a lot, maybe delivers some line like "That's what we do to punks who try to come on our side of town"?

busy chillin': manbart: busy chillin': nope, not that.

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

OMG! They could be sitting right nect to you, and you wouldn't even know it! This is horrible!

no. they will tell you.

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.


Possibly with a vintage 1890's artisinal hammer.

TODAY'S HIPSTER BEATING.
"Today I saw Ethan taking a "food porn" picture of his $10 imported licorice infused latte for his Brooklyn based blog that only his enabling Culdesacian parents read to know their fragile red bearded son is keeping busy on their dime. So I dragged his empty-ketchup-packet shaped body behind the counter and ran him through the coffee bean grinder. End of story."

TV's Vinnie: I have the perfect fashion idea for the Hipster; a baseball bat imbedded into the top of their ugly empty skulls.

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.

Lorelle: 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.


i have been to silverlake several times, so i'm picking up what you're laying down.

any fake eyepatches? i figure that might be a "thing" soon.
