Hipstercrite Round-Up: The World is Ryan Gosling’s Runway

  • (art) Who doesn’t love recycled art? Who? WHO?! TELL ME!!! Various creative artists came up with some interesting reworkings of billboards. My favorite is the billboard swing, though it seems kind of terrifying. Like the sort of thing that you think would be a good idea to try after you had five Rumple Minze. (via WebUrbanist)
  • (lifestyle) Don’t know why this surprises me, but Texas is NOT the #1 most drunken state. Oh wait, I know why it surprises me, because EVERYONE IS DRUNK ALL OF THE TIME IN AUSTIN. Can you guess which state is the drunkest? (via Happy Place)
  • (fashion) Some dudes in Austin were featured in Conde Nast’s Menswear for their style icon-ess. I know one of the guys, but I made a promise not to talk about him, so I’m not sure exactly what I’m talking about right now. (via WWD)
  • (technology) This news came out last week, but do you know that they’re making an electric DeLorean? Like, the DeLorean needs to be anymore cool. It’s so cool, I can’t Continue Reading

Hipstercrite Round-Up: Crazy Psycho Killer Clown Edition

  • (music) David Lynch has an album. It’s called “Crazy Clown Time”. Neither one of those statements are surprising.  This album came out about a month ago so this is not new news. I’m just hoping you’re as behind the times as I am. P.S. Can someone here please make a David Lynch “Crazy Clown Time”/Crispin Glover “Clowny Clown Clown” mash-up? The album is $12.50 on Amazon. (NPR Music)
  • (film) Somebody is remaking American Psycho. And by somebody I mean nobody. They’re letting a dude with one second unit director cred to his name remake a  movie that should not be remade. Sigh. When will Hollywood ever learn? Story is BEE is all for it. (Indiewire)
  • (art) David Byrne has another art installation piece, folks. He’s out of control. (Flavorwire)
  • (music) Doesn’t it make you sick how cool Arcade Fire is?  Don’t you want to jump off a cliff for feeling so creatively inferior to them? Feel a little more shitty about yourself by watching the new music video for “Sprawl Continue Reading

Hipstercrite Round-Up: Bitches Be Crazy Edition

  • (music) Did you know that Talking Heads has a new documentary called “Chronology” out? Yeah, neither did. That one kind of slipped under the rug. NPR gives you a first look at the new doc that chronnicles the band’s live performances from their early days playing at CBGB’s all the way up to the last time they played as a foursome at the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. The film is available on Amazon for $19.99 (NPR All Songs Considered)
  • (music) All aboard the P.P. Love Letter (@Monbud came up with that one,  I’m not that funny)! R. Kelly has got himself a cruise ship. He’s going to sing to you on that cruise ship. Then he’s going to lock everyone in the closet. This premise sounds like the beginning of a snuff film. (A.V. Club)
  • (film) Ever wonder what the hell happened to Mike Myers? Well your fears of what he could have possibly been doing during that time of isolation is true: he’s making an Austin Powers musical. Goes to show that even comic geniuses run Continue Reading

Hipstercrite Round-Up: The Crazy Girl Edition

Good Magazine
  • (Relationships) The Huffington Post article A Message to Women From a Man: You Are Not “Crazy” has been making the rounds this week. In the article, author Yasha Ali earns his gold star bone-ability rating by reminding women that it’s not us, it’s them. “When we are discouraged in our youth and early adulthood from expressing emotion, it causes many of us to remain steadfast in our refusal to express regret when we see someone in pain from our actions.” This article has the exact opposite title of my post Girls Are Crazy Until They Reach the age of 26. When I first read Ali’s article, I thought, “Yeah, but we women need to toughen up a bit.” I had worked for a person very similar to the type Ali describes in his post. He made me feel small anytime I opened my mouth. “Stop acting like a girl!” he’d say. Everything I did was wrong. I wasn’t good enough and he often held my job over my head. It was a difficult time in my life and looking back, I feel that it Continue Reading

Hipstercrite Round-Up

I’m going to try something new today. This was an idea I planned for the blog redesign but never got around to doing it until Randall at  The Mojo Wire reminded me.  Thanks, Randall!

Now that I’m a freelance writer and social media manager, I spend a lot of time reading and sharing on the internet. I come across a lot of cool stuff and I guess sharing them on Facebook and Twitter are not enough- I FEEL THE NEED TO SHARE THEM ON MY BLOG TOO!

I’ve always enjoyed Flavorwire’s daily roundup, so I thought I’d give it a try.

Please let me know your thoughts. Do you like? Not like? Should I do daily or once a week or never?

-Texts from Bennett was the hot commodity trending on Facebook today. Text messages from a 17 year-old white kid who thinks he’s a Crip never was so funny. Do you guys think it’s real?

-Do you go by the title ‘Happiness Advocate‘? What about ‘Social Media Trailblazer‘? ‘Head Cheese‘? Or how about ‘Douchebag‘? Brazen Careerist talks about the Continue Reading
