motorino is so overrated- the pizza is dull dull dull. one of those nyc mysteries...
hmm, i have to say i disagree with your identification of hipsters. hipster's more like a word for someone who thinks they're cooler than you because they think they discovered neon zebra stripes.
the people in those pictures don't really look like hipsters either. and the majority of the fixed-gear crowd is more worried about the latest loft party than obscure ultra-leftist manifestos. they certainly wouldn't risk f-ing up their precious bikes to impale you, or anyone, on a matter of principle. unless their hot-pink rims had been called into question, and then they'd probably just beat you with their bike-lock chain (though, on second thought, the importance of wearing said chain around the waist for other fixed-gearheads to recognize would probably render its use as a weapon off limits.)
i WISH hipster signified individuality, eccentricity and bohemianism. though it's certainly synonymous with youth, at least in nyc, and especially williamsburg, them hipsters are hive-mided, consumerist trendies: true children of the suburbs from which they came, and to which they presumably (please god) will eventually return.
they are, in fact, the ones who've most bought into a certain subset of that "high-end aesthetic," and appear to be completely unbothered by the issue of "zero content".
power to the frenchies, however. is there an emoticon for a raised fist?
