Better Know Your Hipster

"calling someone a "hipster" seems more akin to calling them a "poseur" than anything else"

these people (who pose as hipsters) are called "fake-sters". every freshman you see at Neon or any other night at the Jackpot is automatically a fake-ster. You don't have any true hip-cred (hipster credibility) until you can hang out on the back porch of the Replay smoking and drinking PBR until you run out of cash.

remember, hipsterdom and zen are very much alike. "the hip that can be named is not the eternal hip."

Better Know Your Hipster

Dude, somebody needs to make a Lawrence version of Hipster Bingo. It needs to be updated anyways. Purse with a skull on it could be replaced with a Love Garden bag. And of course there needs to be something with Sunflower Outdoor on it.

Even as it is though, it's still very much playable. You have to wait until the winter though to get a "cover all" because the vest is a little hard to come by any other time. (That's why I wear it myself!)

Behind the Lens: Create your own home studio

$3000 is also the amount for a pretty decent home entertainment center, for us lazy, non-creative types.

Park and ride

I'm 75% confident that JCCC confiscated my bike because it was locked to a light pole outside of their fancy new contemporary art museum.

I moved from Lawrence to Kansas City two months later to be closer to my job here. The K-10 Connector is wonderful, but there are no close spots to lock my bike at the JCCC stop.

I'm pregnant. Not dead.

At the Kentucky Derby in May, a saw a visibly pregnant woman cut in front of the mint julep line and order two of them. She was obviously taking them back to her crew, but still uncool.

The Barrel House

There's no place like home

The tap room isn't exactly the best local venue in town. The ceiling is low and there's no stage. It's like watching someone practice in their basement (provided all of the regular light bulbs were swapped out with red ones). But I suppose if you like to be closely surrounded by drunken buffoons who think they can dance (like me), this would be THE venue for you.

A quick note about the Power and Light

Act 1

Stage front: DJ Jazzy Jeff doing his thing (DJ-ing)
Stage right, sound equipment: DJ Jazzy Jeff's Sound Technician

Enter Power and Light Representative to sound equipment.

Power and Light Representative: [To Sound Technician] This music is too loud, you've got to turn it down. It's blowing our speakers.

Sound Technician: [To DJ Jazzy Jeff] They think this music is too loud and they want us to stop.

Here's my two cents: what we had here was a failure to communication. Two culprits here:
1. The Power and Light representative did not do a good enough job explaining to DJ Jazzy Jeff's representative that the music was too loud.
2. DJ Jazzy Jeff's representative did not do a good enough job explaining to DJ Jazzy Jeff what the problem was.

As far as the sound system is concerned, maybe DJ Jazzy Jeff's representative had complete control of the sound system. Just a thought.
