Unhappy Hipsters

I know how much Neato readers appreciate good captions, so here's a site I just discovered via Ellen Maguire on Twitter. It's called Unhappy Hipsters and it gives funny captions to photos that have appeared in Dwell magazine.  Here's an example:

"Still recovering from broken trust, neither wanted to be the first to try the eggs."

I like this one too:

"You can come out when you can properly explain the differences between Modernist architecture and postmodern ornamentation."

There are lots more where those came from.

Amazing - houses stuck in the era of Rollerball. There are some on the donor site (Dwell) where I struggle to find a single redeeming feature in a photo.

When a dream goes stale, all that's left is bitterness.

Been there, done that, since recovered, but the combinations of image and caption capture that feeling perfectly...

The captions are grasping for humour, but failing miserably. Nothing 'neatorama' about this.

And that first couple are too old to be 'hipsters'.

Ugh. It looks like every house pictured in that magazine is a recreation of the ugly doctor office waiting rooms I remember being in as a child in the late 70's.

i know lots of happy hipsters, which, by the way, i most commonly identify as young party kids with too much fashion mindedness. the people shown in these photos seem to be upper class white people with a good, albeit minimal, sense of design aesthetic. they look like architects.

Love it. Dwell photos can be so pretentious and the depicted environments so sterile. Debate the specifics of "hipster" all you want but these photos are clearly supposed to show us the ultimate in "coolness" when it comes to living spaces. So why do so many of them lack of humanity and life? It's ridiculous, and I love that this site is calling that out.
