Future Hipster of America



An attempt at long, sideswept bangs (a perennial quest, one which alternates with the quest for Shirley Manson-red hair) resulted in what will be, in several months, some of the best LSBs around. Hate hipsters, love the bangs and the leggings.

Hott.

Jesus Christ, people. "Hott" is so 2003.

Hipsters who loathe other hipsters are the least hip hipsters in the world.

That aside, it's certainly the best foto of you since the furry hat. However, you seem have a metallic looking tumor coming out of the right side of your face that might need medical attention.

No one with my views on Israel could possibly qualify as a hipster.

"No one with my views on Israel could possibly qualify as a hipster."

Hipsters are the apolitical ones.

You'd have trouble qualifying as a hippie due to your political beliefs.

(Tangentially, I think being a hippie is fully compatible with being a Zionist. You'd just have to reject the maximalist position on Israel annexing chunks of the West Bank, and have some sympathy for the plight of Palestinians living in the occupied territories. But, of course, wanting to join the IDF is probably a hippie disqualifier no matter what the rest of your politics are. Nationalism is bad enough, but militarism is a deal-breaker in hippie-dom.)

But you can have atrocious politics and still be a hipster. The LSB just have to be good enough. See Vincent Gallo for a good example of the Hipster with Bad Politics.

this is vain even for a blog.

You're allowed to put pictures of yourself on your own blog. That's the joy of self-publishing.

if i knew your views on zionism i might consider them vain but the picture itself is just plain cute. although if you are truly enamored with guiliani, as an upstream thread portends, i will find it necessary to smite my smittenness. say it aint so!
