Your Ugly Christmas Sweater Is Stupid; Stop Wearing It Now

Take off your ugly Christmas sweater and burn it. Don't throw it in the trash, because that's not good enough. That thing needs to be rendered useless, diced into tiny pieces, incinerated. Why? Let's start with the fact that it's not a functioning piece of clothing. It's itchy, ill-fitting, and lets cold air in… » 12/23/14 11:45am 12/23/14 11:45am

Evil Twin Hipster Ale Is Cool, Just Like You

Evil Twin is an interesting operation. In the unlikely event you have any free New York Times articles left on the 28th of a pretty newsy month, you can learn nearly everything I know about that operation here. A quick summary: It's a contract-brewing company run out of Brooklyn by a Danish guy who doesn't get along… » 10/28/14 3:03pm 10/28/14 3:03pm

My Friends, It Is Time To Send Brooklyn Beneath The Waves

One of the challenges of writing about things on the internet is having the discipline to contain yourself, for the sake of being able to call an item of work finished instead of knitting it into some mammoth all-encompassing rant about, like, American culture or capitalism or the human condition or whatever that will… » 10/23/14 1:35pm 10/23/14 1:35pm

Pabst Blue Ribbon: It's Not Just For Hipsters Anymore, And Never Was

I've only blocked a couple of people on Twitter, because the Internet has generally deemed me unworthy of harassment, but if I were a more prominent person or dealt with a more controversial subject, I would toss motherfuckers overboard by the dozen. I do not interpret the First Amendment as guaranteeing every last… » 9/03/14 2:35pm 9/03/14 2:35pm

This Is the Williamsburg of Your City: A Map of Hip America

What is your city's Williamsburg? What's its hippest—or formerly hippest—or sometimes just youngest—neighborhood, the one with the art galleries and the boutiques and the lines for brunch? (And what, for that matter, is its Bushwick, or "Next Williamsburg"?) If you don't know off the top of your head, don't worry. We… » 1/29/14 12:33pm 1/29/14 12:33pm

While The Jets Try To Trade Him, Darrelle Revis Is Embracing His Inner…

Darrelle Revis wants a lot of money from the Jets to extend his contract, which expires at the end of 2013. If the Jets opt not to give him that money, and to trade him, he wants the money from whichever team acquires him from the Jets. And if the Jets don't give him that money, and let him play out the season, he'll… » 3/14/13 6:13pm 3/14/13 6:13pm

Instagram Photos From The Brooklyn Cyclones' "Williamsburg Night"

It was Williamsburg Night at MCU Park, home of the Brooklyn Cyclones, a hipster-friendly mashup of the usual minor league quirkiness and a particular local flair. (And probably super-familiar for attendees, since they all moved to Brooklyn from the Midwest three years ago, amirite?) Among the promotions were a pregame… » 7/06/12 10:20am 7/06/12 10:20am

Dwyane Wade Copes With Brutal Game 5 Loss By Wearing Stupid Glasses

First it was Russell Westbrook, and now it's Dwyane Wade rocking a pair of glasses without lenses in the postgame locker room. Wade may be a fashionable man, but you can't pull off this look after you got your ass beat. LENS-FREE GLASSES ARE FOR CLOSERS. I'm not gonna go as far as Yahoo's Dan Wetzel or anyone else who… » 6/06/12 11:55am 6/06/12 11:55am

Lady In Steph Curry Jersey And Leggings At Outside Lands Gives Us Our…

At first I thought this was a man, which would have been a hoopster to end all hoopsters. Dangly earrings, big scarf, a ponytail, leggings, and a cool player's jersey. » 8/14/11 5:30pm 8/14/11 5:30pm

We Want To See Your Ironic NBA Jerseys (UPDATE)

Yesterday, we posted a quicklink to The Faster Times's gallery of indie bros wearing NBA jerseys at the Pitchfork Festival. It's a fascinating phenomenon, a game even, as if they're actively trying to wear the most ridiculous NBA jersey imaginable. » 7/21/10 2:40pm 7/21/10 2:40pm

Hipsters Slipping On Ice; What More Could You Want?

We've had icy sidewalks here in New York lately. Hazardous, but entertaining. Here's an excellent montage of a streetcorner in the heart of hipsterdom, Williamsburg, featuring three solid minutes of neckbeards and lumberjack hats eating pavement. » 2/21/10 2:15pm 2/21/10 2:15pm

Mother Nature Does not Appreciate Your Ironic Sports

A sad day in the annals of hipster athletics, as a 23 year old Brooklynite was unceremoniously pancaked by a falling tree limb during a game of dodgeball. Time to start thinking of the perfect post-modern tattoo to commemorate. » 7/10/09 11:30am 7/10/09 11:30am

Hipsters In Big Wheels — A Regressive Delight

Bring Your Own Big Wheel, an annual event for wacky funsters to relive the childhood they never left is typically held on San Francisco's winding Lombard Street. This year's event went down Easter Sunday on Potrero Hill, which The Backyard » 3/29/08 3:15pm 3/29/08 3:15pm said is probably more treacherous. Not being from the Bay Area, this means…
