I was looking through the National Day of Service projects in/around Portland and like 90% of them are about planting trees, community gardens, or bikes. Oh Portland.
Any other Portlanders want to come out with me and do some service this weekend? Or find your own project!
EDIT: I think this it the one I’m going to participate in. Come along if you want!
“The word “hipster” is problematic, as I’m unsure it has any real meaning at this point. Five or so years ago it was used to refer to snarky vegans in Williamsburg who rode bikes to their nondescript media jobs and wore keffiyehs in the middle of August. Now I think it’s a catch-all to mean “anything I personally don’t understand or care about,” which creates this strange cycle of would-be hipsters putting down other would-be hipsters, while the world’s soccer moms and geologists watch from the sidelines, wondering what the fuss is about.”
Adam Ellis, “Books of Adam”
The most concise description I’ve ever read of what a hipster is today.
