Just wait till tomorrow. There's going to be a cornucopia of hipsterness. Some might call it the "Hipster Episode."

Makes sense as it is "Episode XX."

Who took the photo? I like it.

I have to admit... they are much prettier than me.

And their clothes fit.

And they are wearing pants.

I do not harbor delusions that I possess any hipster cred.

Don't count yourself out yet, chalking has slowly and surely been changing your image.

Its official...
I now weigh under 300 lbs.
which means I've lost 80 lbs. so far...


Congrats Stowe

James "Biggy Biggy" Stowe lost 80 lbs from doin' chalk art? Forget the Subway sandwich diet as shown on national TeeVee...

Speakin' of appearances, I'm thinkin' that UrbanXjulie must be from Tennessee, 'cause she's the only ten I see!

the ad is too fawnish - I don't like images of women fawning - especially over someone "famous" - it's ickeeeeeeeee

Brooke looks too ready to lick Quinn's shoes... and knowing she's a model doesn't help

I dunno, Scout. Maybe it's just my uber-ultra-nonhipness (So unhip, I'm like, hip. OK, not really.) but I totally didn't get any of that. Not really knowing anything about the people in the picture beyond Julie's blurb I see:

man with goofy expression and woman laughing

Seems like just another afternoon to me...

because you need clothes?

But why? It would be cooler if they were naked with blurred boxes over their private bits-n-pieces. Now that says "because you need clothes"

I could go on and on, but Im on vaca.

See ya'll soon

"I see: man with goofy expression"

It doesn't help that the building in the background (behind the guy's head) makes him look like he's wearing one of those .99 birthday hats.

stowe...on the photo contrasts: you aren't supposed to let on that you weren't wearing pants in your photo shoot....

by urbanX on 8/21/2008 @ 2:11am
Doesn't that make stowe's photo that much edgier?
PS/ bummer for the sexist connotations-not intended. Quinn really is absolutely adorable enough that any girl would fawn over him, and brooke is just naturally giddy, boys or not.

PPS/ i guarantee that no one else has ever coined the phrase "a cornucopia of hipsterness". It's the apex of urbanistishness. oh euphemisms....

by scout on 8/21/2008 @ 11:06am
Julia is one of the nicest fashion diva/moguls I know. She is the ultimate faschionista, urbanista, and hipsterista.....

and therefore she is the ultimate, uber
