  • Wrestling’s new greatest villain: “The Progressive Liberal”

    To cleanse the palate, how did it take until 2017 for pro (or semi-pro) wrestling to come up with a sneering leftist as a heel? Half the fun of following the WWF in the 1980s was booing Nikolai Volkoff and the Iron Sheik. If last year’s election proved anything, it’s that condescending uncharismatic liberals are the villains everyone of this era loves to hate. Even so, I was going to slam this guy for not doing nearly enough to embrace the caricature — where’s the hipster beard? — until I read this and discovered … he really is a...

    Cosmetics brand Lush, popular among young girls and hipsters for their “bath bombs,” is launching a new anti-President Trump hair care product. According to Cosmopolitan, Lush announced plans to release a hair treatment called “Yuge,” a play on the way Trump pronounces the word “huge,” alongside an “orange faced, tiny-handed man” at their 2017 Lush Summit. The “Yuge” product is reportedly a hot oil treatment that will “add volume and softness to your hair.” Cosmopolitan notes the product is not currently available as it is being tested on humans in the U.K. (Lush opposes animal testing). Lush’s homepage features two statements opposing...
  • City shuts down dumpster-pool craze (War on Hipsters)

    A West Philadelphia neighborhood has lost its block party privileges, and others around the city will have to find an alternate form of aquatic entertainment after the Philadelphia Department of Licenses & Inspections came down with a firm – if obvious – edict: Residents are not allowed to tap into fire hydrants to turn dumpsters into swimming pools. "We are not screwing around, Philly," the Department of Licenses & Inspections wrote, listing several reasons why "you shouldn’t swim in a receptacle most often used for waste." City officials said they were obliged to make that declaration after several residents in...

    Two brothers behind a popular brand of craft chocolate have apologized for 'misleading' customers after they were accused of 'defrauding the public' by allegedly covering-up how some of their bars used to be made. Rick and Michael Mast, who both sport impressive beards, launched Mast Brothers chocolate in New York in 2007. Their range, which costs up to $23 (ÂŁ16) a bar, is now on sale at flagship stores in Brooklyn, New York, and London's trendy east end.

    What do we call me? I’m a 26-year-old writer who lives in a gentrifying neighborhood in Brooklyn. I’m a straight white man with a single-speed bike and a mustache. I studied liberal arts in college, and I have ideas about stuff, you guys. Millennial? Hipster? Yuppie? All of these, or none? We don’t have a term that quite encapsulates this corner of the despicable millenn-intelligensia. And like any other privileged member of a so-called “creative class,” being called a hipster offends me for its inaccuracy. I demand to be snarked in precise terms. Let's consider something new: Yuccies. Young Urban...

    A new play, World Factory, asks the audience to run a clothing factory in China – and even the creators have been surprised at how people have behaved.The choices were stark: sack a third of our workforce or cut their wages by a third. After a short board meeting we cut their wages, assured they would survive and that, with a bit of cajoling, they would return to our sweatshop in Shenzhen after their two-week break. But that was only the start. In Zoe Svendsen’s play World Factory at the Young Vic, the audience becomes the cast. Sixteen teams sit...

    Apple Watch. Seems like Apple has a hit on its corporate hands. Or a preorder hit. The company sold a million Apple Watches in the first 24 hours—just in the U.S.—according to one piece of analysis. That would make it the most successful new product category launch in Apple's history—so what do you do if you've been talking smack about it for months? If you're Roger Kay, you stuff a straw man full of nonsensical numbers that will allow you to declare the device a failure no matter what. It's a neat trick so long as no one applies a...

    <p>Ever since Ted Cruz and the Koch Brothers invented racism, it’s been a well-known fact that conservative middle-class Americans are the biggest racists to ever be racist. Disgustingly, ridiculously racist. Oh my God, the racism practiced by everyday citizens who want lower taxes and go to Church on Sundays is just appalling. Racists, racists, racists.</p>

    Republicans have long struggled to catch-up to Democrats on high-tech voter outreach as well as courting younger voters. Jeb Bush may have found a way to kill two birds with one stone. The former Florida governor has tapped the co-founder of Hipster.com as his chief technology officer, according to his LinkedIn profile. Ethan Czahor, a Santa Monica-based technologist, will run the preparations for Bush’s presidential run at his political action committee, Right to Rise. Last week Czahor developed the microsite jebspeech.com, which accompanied Bush’s address to the Detroit Economic Club domain registration records show. Hidden in the website code was...

    A Berkeley, California man died last December after paramedics were delayed nearly an hour because of an unruly protest against police brutality, recently released records show. Berkleyside, a self-described “independent news site” serving the Berkeley area, reports that the 62-year-old Alvin Henry Jones Jr. would have normally received treatment in minutes. However, due to a nearby #BlackLivesMatters protest, paramedics were instead ordered to go to a local fire station and await a police escort before attempting to rescue Jones. It took 52 minutes to get Jones to a hospital, after which he died two days later. Paperwork filed by the...

    December 27, 2014 KNEEPAD ALERT: FOODIE OBAMA IS HIPPEST PRESIDENT EVER! By John Hinderaker By any reasonable standard, the Obama administration has been a train wreck. But that doesn’t prevent our state media from fawning over him as though he were the reincarnation of George Washington. Here, it is CBS, telling us that Obama is a “foodie” who eats at the trendiest restaurants, is “far hipper” than other presidents; in particular, “so much cooler than President Bush.” Actually, if you watch to the end you will get a clue as to why President Bush generally chose not to dine out...

    If you’re in New York right now trying to get somewhere, good luck. The streets are full of idiots screaming “I Can’t Breathe”. There are lots of signs about white supremacism, imperialism and justice. Justice being the thing that happens when a court does something, not when a lynch mob demands something. Hipsters are lying down stiffly in Grand Central Station. NYPD cops are collecting overtime thanks to the morons screaming at them. The Revolutionary Communist Party and its splinter group, the Really Revolutionary Communist Party are out in force with signs. It’s hard to pick the ten biggest idiots...

    A caffeinated gang of annoying white hipsters in Seattle did their level best to ruin Christmas this year by surrounding the city’s annual Christmas tree-lighting ceremony, chanting and making a bunch of little kids cry. The young, well-heeled, largely white crowd of demonstrators was protesting in response to Monday’s announcement that a grand jury in Missouri had refused to indict white police officer Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black male, on Aug. 9. Friday’s incident in Seattle occurred at Westlake Mall, according to local NBC affiliate KING-TV. Westlake Mall is some 2,119 miles away from Ferguson, Mo.,...

    Ditch Brooklyn, millennials. The real place to be is Des Moines, a city with a blossoming culture scene, thriving start-ups, and urban beauty.(VIDEO-AT-LINK) DES MOINES, Iowa—This is too nice a place to spawn a war cry. But if the city had one, it would be the sentiment heard across a downtown populated by baristas, tech start-up founders, musicians, and nonprofit professionals alike: "It's Des Moines against the world." Young people here know what you think of this city. It doesn't need repeating. But ambitious minds are in the process of building a new Des Moines, a tech hub in Silicon...

    A study from the Texas Association of Realtors shows international buyers pumped more than $11 billion dollars into the Texas economy between March of 2013 and 2014. One Austin Realtor says people from outside of the U.S. are looking for a secure investment. “An international client can come into the Austin market, get a great value for what they’re buying and almost be insured that there’s profitability in that and that’s unique to the world as a whole,” said J Kuper, owner of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty.

    How do we make sense of the fact that America’s most progressive cities, the ones that cherish diversity, are losing African Americans? And that the most conservative places are doing the opposite? Between 2000 and 2010, cities like Austin, Chicago, Washington D.C., San Francisco—places that vote majority Democrat, consider themselves socially and culturally progressive, and boast racial diversity—all lost unprecedented numbers of African Americans. San Francisco, for instance, saw a staggering 20.4 percent loss in its African American population between 2000 and 2010. Chicago and Washington D.C. also experienced double-digit losses. During that same decade, the only three major cities...

    If you of a certain age, you may remember the great American heyday of kids’ breakfast cereals. It was a glorious time — a time when supermarket aisles as long as basketball courts teemed with boxes of sugary goodness and when we were all free to buy Count Chocula cereal every day of the year.Those days are long gone. Still, since 2010, Americans have at least been able to look forward to seasonal distribution of Count Chocula cereal — and Franken-Berry, and Boo-Berry — during the September and October run-up to Halloween.Now, even this tradition is imperiled because some hipster...

    Is Burning Man a huge art installation, a social experiment, or simply a giant rave? The people who get behind the first two concepts are the ones who believe strongly in bringing their children to the Burn. They pack up their Suburbans, slather on sunscreen, and outfit their kids in tiny wildebeest costumes. “This will always be a family-friendly event,” Burning Man employee Jim Graham stated on NPR recently. Based on their principle of radical inclusion, Burning Man officials “enthusiastically welcome children of all ages to Black Rock City.” Since the festival is an experiment in freedom and creative expression,...
