In less than 24 hours, you’ll be able to order the Monument Valley soundtrack on vinyl. That’s right. You can an iPhone app’s music in the form of a vinyl record. The double LP costs $40. Obviously, the hipsters have won.
I've never been to Portland, but I've seen the airport's carpet a million times. If you asked me to draw a picture of the delightfully geometric 80s design, I could probably do it with my eyes closed. How, you wonder? Hipsters. That's how.
When enough contrarians actively resist mainstream trends, their nonconformity may actually align. Ergo beardsplosion.
Vinyl records and unneccessary, overly-large eyeglasses: probably just below coffee shops and typewriters when playing the Hipster Word Association Game. If you've ever wanted to combine those two staples, look no further: Vinylize is a company that upcycles old LPs into eyeglasses for the PBR-drinking masses.
Maybe it's the time of year. Maybe it's the weather? But people are extra cranky this week about fixie bikes and craft brews invading their cities. There's a definite anti-hipster vibe in the air, and it's global, from Portland, to Los Angeles, to London, to Iceland. What's Ruining Our Cities? HIPSTERS.
Is Google Glass really "killing cities" or just the douchebags who wear them? Are mines bringing cities down—literally? Is the Bowery doomed? Is Berlin really over? We examine these questions and more, in this week's edition of What's Ruining Our Cities.
Everybody's heard of hair plugs, but did you realize you could get a full beard transplant? A growing number of men in New York and elsewhere are catching on. It's apparently becoming a very popular thing to do, especially in hipster-packed neighborhoods like Williamsburg and Bushwick.
Are you sick of so many bearded, flannel-shirted, thick-rimmed-eyeglass wearers slowing down the lines in your coffee shop before they crowd up your sidewalk as they scoot their way to their artisan butchery class? Are you tired of that quirkily homogeneous mass of humanity? We'll tell you why it exists.
While there are thousands of “best places to live” lists, hardly any of them focus on the world’s most important population segment: Americans under 35. The Livability Index, compiled by Vocativ, a new Vice-esque site, measures cities in the only ways that really matter: from the percentage of young people, to the…
Another day, another dumb trend piece published in the otherwise fine newspaper The New York Times: apparently, movie theaters are being "reinvented" by hipsters in Williamsburg, the Brooklyn neighborhood which is on itself the epitome of all NYT trends. Thankfully, Hamilton Nolan is here to crush it.
Being dead — yeah, it's a thing that happened. It was a little awkward. But get over it, OK? Use your app, take your meds, whatever. It sucks to be a hipster zombie, but here are nine examples of the hip and partially dead who are totally making the best of it.
As you may remember, yesterday, we put up a post poking fun at this then-stranger who'd been photographed using a typewriter in Starbucks by one of his fellow students. Cries of rage soon followed from both sympathizers and opponents alike. This man's typewriter and our mocking tone struck a chord. For some of you, a…
It's very likely that if you're reading this, you may be afflicted with Hyper Involuntary Panic Stress Tension Elevation also known as HIPSTER. Or maybe if you're not, you know someone who is. Here's the most hilarious way to cure them: Unpretentiousil. This spoof ad drops the science of being a hipster and how it…
Face it, Santa is pretty antiquated. I mean, what kind of crazy elf-powered factory must he have up there in the North pole in order to be churning out iPhones and laptops and Wii Us? Ridiculous as it is, you don't want him to get hip, because he'd turn into this. He'd keep his list in the cloud. He'd order all his…
Confession: The majority of Gizmodo staff lives in Williamsburg, so we count ourselves in this mass of angry "hipsters."
Superheroes get redesigned all the time — it's just part of the genre. And it's totally fine to complain about this — it's part of being a fan. But sometimes, a superhero gets a makeover that's not just radical, or "kewl," but... hipstery.
Four Barrel Coffee in San Francisco had something of a problem with loud customers being all "hipstery" and annoying the neighbors, so they posted a notice kindly asking hipsters to shut the hell up. Only a few days later, the sign had to be amended to include another forbidden act which had suddenly become popular:…
Craftsmanship. Beauty. Customization. Brooklyn. DL Skateboards, purveyors of skate decks and owners of impressive arm tattoos, specializes in all four. And they do it all from the back of a box truck that they picked up in New Hampshire.
If you've been following the excitement about yesterday's Higgs Boson discovery, now's your chance to feel vaguely smug. Vice Magazine's Motherboard went out in Brooklyn and asked hipsters what the Higgs Boson is — and their answers may alarm you somewhat. Science literacy is taking a back seat to hairstyle…
