Kari Ferrell, yes the Hipster Grifter of viral ’09 fame, is a new writer over at ANIMAL. The website was among the most attentive to the story and its anti-hero last Spring, which undoubtedly explains her affections in return, but we’re left wondering about the mutual appeal. Despite having almost a week’s worth of her postings to sift through, well, we just don’t really get it.
So far, we’ve been treated to a State of the Union Address drinking game and some incongruous (funny?) hyperlinks. There has been the obligatory “You probably don’t want to read what I have to say” manifesto and the less necessary “These con-artists are way worse than me” post. But, the thing is, we do want to hear what you have to say, Kari Ferrell. Or, at least, we kind of want you to make us want to hear what you have to say. Stop with this take-me-or-leave-me routine and show us your tried and true you-know-you-want-me side. That’s the schtick that got you where you are today. That’s what captivated us in the first place.
