Si vols ser un bon Hípster, això t’interessa!

For something that started out as a crappy joke and a way to learn a little about front end development, the success was dumbfounding to say the least. The site got 100,000 views in its first week and was tweeted and talked about by some of my favorite blogs. Big thanks to everyone that reached out and helped with the errors in my code. Take a look and tell me what you think. Comments are welcome!

Aa AVIATORS
“No, it’s not sunny. Yes I do need to wear them. What exactly am I looking at?”

Bb BOWTIE
A piece of fabric signifying the importance of one’s adam’s apple. It’s a gift, better wrap a bow around it.

Cc CIGGY
Tubes of toxic chemicals lit on fire and inhaled to show culture, depravity & a love of live music.

Dd DREAMCATCHER
It catches your hopes and dreams, so you actually don’t have to have any. How awesome is THAT?!

Ee ESPRESSO
Water dressed in black. Very bitter & expensive, but Europeans drink it & they’re always ahead of the curve.

Ff FIXIE
Because switching gears and going up hills easier is just fucking stupid and severely uncool.

Gg GRAPHIC TEE
“This design was hand-drawn and hand-pulled on this Goodwill shirt by my bro Holden, so it’s a one of a kind.”

Stupid hipsters making fun of stupid hipsters for being stupid hipsters. This site.

A rancid concoction made up of putrid organisms that will keep you regular for months.

Ll LETTERING
“Just a quick little hand-drawn logo I made while waiting for my macchiato.”

Mm MUSTACHE
Come have some candy, I’ve got plenty in my van. Its the one over there with the spray painted windows.

Nn NEUTRALS
“Neutral colors go with everything…especially other neutral colors. So many shades of gray.”

Oo ORGANIC
An extractive, exploitive food product grown chemically free, except some chemicals.

Pp POLAROID
“Because my phone’s camera is too high quality and Instagram is too instant.”

Qq QUIDDITCH
Fast-paced, dangerous, and imaginary. Praise Lord Harry Potter for his greatest gift given unto this earth.

“Older is always better. That’s why I like to shop at IKEA and Urban Outfitters.”

Ss SCARF
Rectangular strips of fabric strangled around the body, indicating fully unknown allegiances.

Tt TYPEWRITER
An antique. It’s a very heavy laptop that doesn’t even have a calculator on it…

One person’s trash is another person’s piece of shit $1700 “desk lamp.”

The best way to show everyone that you listen to cooler music than they do. “It just sounds better on vinyl.”

The cheaper, the better. I wanna feel the burn all the way down to my bowels.

English indie-pop from England town. Slow, boring, repetitive, perfect.

Yy YOGA

In no way does this site capture the zeitgeist of 2014. Z was a hard letter, you guys.
