Hip or Dangerous?

A tipster send us this short video, filmed in Williamsburg. It’s a must-see [thanks Noel]

We did the book, looks like someone may finally do the video series. From theburg.tv website:

The Burg: the hipster world capital where trust fund kids pretend to be starving artists, starving artists pretend to be able to live completely off of credit cards, and everybody pretends not to notice. Who says gentrification isn’t funny?

    I used to remember a nice neighborhood. When everyone wasn’t trying so goddamn hard to be anything, let alone hip. I remember when so called hipsters were the people actually in bands and the cool people I could look to for some good H. Now it’s these uptite, unfriendly, boring people who stare at my track marks when I want a pint at the Abby. What to do?

  15. i just did says:

    lets do some h then sucka

    “What to do?”
    You could just kill yourself… I hear they have some nice neighborhoods in the afterlife.

    Hipsters in the burg are the most uninteresting, rude and insecure people in the city. Shame on you. It’s not a coincidence you all convene in the same area.

  18. wow. ironic hipsters.
    hipsters, trustafarians and backpackers should have a royal rumble.

  20. backpackers? aren’t they just people who go on camping trips?
    i am thinking of switching from messenger bag to backpack, since the weight is then evenly distributed between both shoulders. if the messenger bag is a hipster thing, does that mean i might be switching group affiliations?
