In channeling all the self-aware, self-pitying wit and quarterlife angst of a really good Twitter feed into a screenplay for a Do-It-with-Friends-and-Family feature, the art-world scion earned a sympathetic New Yorker profile and an Apatow-produced HBO pilot, while making pretty much all of postcollegiate NYC feel like Armie Hammer in The Social Network. Sorry, guys, but if you were the writer of Tiny Furniture, you would have written Tiny Furniture.

  • this kid is amazing! bob dylan reincarnated

  • wait, really? all of these ppl are white kids (except maybe for one? can’t tell) who are artists (i guess), and the token two black kids are our resident basketball stars (at least it doesnt mention how they overcame poverty and a crack-addicted pappy). ain’t there any editors of color at l willing to point out how backwards/imbalanced this article seems?

  • lol, how are they not artists? they have all worked very hard to get where they have (trust me, I am sure) and it is not their faults that the editor/author of the article (who the artists have no control over) chose mostly caucasian males and females. They are all on the rise regardless of ethnicity (and YES, they are still better than you avt). Why don’t you stop waisting your time posting comments that will not invoke or even spark any sort of change because of there pointlessness and stupidity. Go promote “ethnic artists” in a more influential setting loser. stop hatinnn
