The Founding Fathers of Hipsterdom

A few years back, we shared a statement made by Adbusters that went a little something like this:

“We’ve reached a point in our civilization where counterculture has mutated into a self-obsessed aesthetic vacuum. So while hipsterdom is the end product of all prior countercultures, it’s been stripped of its subversion and originality.”

Fast forward to 2011, and the creation of a new blog with the primary goal of proving “that hipsters aren’t original, they’re just trying to be like dear old dad.” Dads: The Original Hipsters manages to hit the nail right on its rusty head -and then some. The result is a critique that’s not only astute, but pretty damn funny too.

Friday Fluff: The Original Ronald McDonald

This one’s a rarity: The very first McDonald’s commercial featuring none other than the world’s favorite junk food pushing clown. Brand-wise, it’s interesting to see the evolution (or de-evolution depending on your perspective) of this iconic image. It’s good for a laugh too.

Shout out to Vicky for the clip!

Hump Day Treats

Ryan Casey an up-and-coming illustrator based out of San Francisco runs a blog called But You’re Like Really Pretty that treats you to a humorous illustration when you need it the most—midway through the work week. One of our favorites is of Amy Winehouse which simply reads: “But You’re Like Really A Crackhead, Amy.” To see more of his work go here.

Friday Fluff: Church Drum n Bass Rave

Pure, straight up comedy, especially since it’s the mirror image of dance festivities at an actual rave – sans glow sticks and illegal drugs, of course.
