Unhappy Hipsters

Put this one in the "Why Didn't I Think of That" file. I just discovered this genius blog the other day that aptly calls Dwell magazine onto the carpet (FLOR, no doubt) for their penchant for showing sour, dour, scowling thirty something hipsters sullenly moping around their multimillion dollar modernist homes. Even the children and pets look aloof and jaded. Well-designed modern environments bring me great joy, so I don't know what's wrong with these people. Turn those frowns upside down already. Here are some highlights from Unhappy Hipsters:

    Right?! It's the "oh . . . i live in this PoMo palace and have all this beautiful MidCenMo furniture, and I'm just so . . .*meh* . . . life is so empty". I'd be all "YEAH!" and throwing the devil horns to the camera. "Look at my Eames chairs, bitches, they are fabulous and look great with my dog!"
