11 Pictures of Hipster Shenanigans Run Amok
written by Sam Greenspan

I don't have any specific beef with hipster culture. Grass fed, hormone-free beef on a gluten-free faux-caccia bun served with tempura-battered turnips fried in coconut oil. So consider this a loving, friendly homage rather than spiteful spitefest.

Here are 11 photos of hipster products, lifestyle items and general nonsense running amok.
  1. Loom life.



    Why do something relaxing like knitting when you could do something ostentatious and cumbersome like public loom weaving?

  2. Asparagus water.



    Whole Foods can get away with overcharging for a lot of things, but jacking up the price of water to $6 by throwing three stalks of asparagus in the bottle seems like a bridge too far.

  3. Old timey bike + Prius.



    Question: Is an old timey bike on the back of a Prius the most hipster-on-hipster combo or...

  4. Old timey bike + Apple store.



    ...does the old timey bike parked in front of an Apple store get that designation.

  5. Dyed armpit hair.



    Spending money to dye your armpit hair a wacky color to match your regular hair that's dyed a wacky color makes so many statements that it may be impossible to keep them all straight.

  6. (Hopefully) inspired by Chaplin.



    Not every old fashioned facial hair style needs to make a comeback.

  7. Typewriting away.



    It would be so tough to write on a typewriter now that we're all so spoiled with luxuries like "backspace" and "saving." I guess it does beat a quill and ink though?

  8. Slicing way the organic properties.



    I had no idea that a bread slicer could de-organicify something, so I've learned something here.

  9. Listening to some music.



    I can't tell if the bright blue plastic record player completes the guy's bit or undermines it. I'm leaning toward undermines. If he'd REALLY wanted to make a statement he'd have packed an entire massive gramophone. Or perhaps commissioned a small baroque string quartet to play outside?

  10. Designer stump.



    It feels very un-green to buy a tree stump -- but only when it's $98. Like, if a hobo was selling stumps for $4 or some vittles, my mind wouldn't go to the environment. Here? It's my first thought.

  11. So many stripes.



    If this is a still shot from a live-action movie version of a Dr. Seuss book, I rescind its placement on this list.
