Vote for Me

Some of you may know that my alter ego "Associate Producer Mike" is one of the candidates in the mayubinatorial race in Newbridge currently being waged on The Best Show on WFMU. Last Tuesday the debate was held at the Newbridge Debate Pavilion. You can listen to the debate beginning at the 1:14 mark of the the Aug. 19 show here. Although I may have hurt my chances when I took a controversial stand on banning Little Mikey Halversom from the Newbridge Little League, I think I won the crowd over when I took off my shirt to proudly display my new tattoo of a zeppole (which I'm still not that happy with because a lot of people seem to mistake it for a turd). Now I need your help. Please vote for me here.

Shrugging themselves into oblivion

Hey, I love an anti-hipster diatribe as much as the next guy, but this is a bit extreme even for me. It's extreme mainly because it takes the hipster far too seriously. The hipster is just a modern day dandy, a 21st century fop, if you will. In the hierarchy of hip, the hipster can barely even compete with the beatnik, the hippie, or the punk. This site does a good job of exploiting the hipster for derision and laughter which may, in the end, be the hipster's most lasting cultural contribution.
