i am so excited about the TONY extra-special hipster episode!

hipsters and their interests, tastes, and needs have been under-represented in the new york media, and certainly on the internet, so this is a very welcome development. it is especially welcome for ME, because i have never quite been hip enough to know exactly what a hipster is or how to spot one.

i haven’t gotten the chance to read the articles yet. but the whole thing strikes me as ridiculous/awesome.

dang it, i can’t resist u LOLcats

I think the cats have won. Jeanmeanie, if gawker can do it, if boingboing can do it, i think it’s safe to do it. Bring on the catblogging. Just bring it. Use that fancy schmancy camera of yours and create masterpieces such as this:

Inspiration here and here, and lots of millions of other places.  Oh, and most especially the posts tagged “invisible” here.

Fantastic!

Ladies of the blog, be sad no more!

In the year 2000, The American will live “fifty years instead of thirty-five as at present-for he will reside in the suburbs!” “Mosquitoes, house-flies and roaches will have been practically exterminated!” “Peas and beans will be as large as beets are to-day!” “There will be No C, X or Q in our every-day alphabet! They will be abandoned because unnecessary!In vacation time poor children will be taken on trips to various parts of the world!” “Nicaragua will ask for admission to our Union after the completion of the great canal. Mexico will be next!” 

Actually, what is so great about this article from 1900 is how right they are about so many things.

i wish i had thought of this first
