So a few months ago, I used this shitty deodorant that caused my left armpit and eventually half my chest to break out in this itchy rash.
Then a couple mornings ago, in my half-sleep, I used it again accidentally. So the rash has started again and is rapidly spreading up and down my torso.
I need someone to parent me.
A Third of Americans Want to Tax Hipsters for ‘Being so Annoying’ | Observer
Hipster-hate is becoming way more obnoxious than hipsters.
Most of my friends are in their mid 20s. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from them, it’s just how idealistic they still are and how jaded I’ve become in my mid 30s.
This is probably one of the big reasons why I hang out with them.
This has to be a joke.
The Aokigahara Forest is the most popular site for suicides in Japan. After the novel Kuroi Jukai was published, in which a young lover commits suicide in the forest, people started taking their own lives there at a rate of 50 to 100 deaths a year. The site holds so many bodies that the Yakuza pays homeless people to sneak into the forest and rob the corpses. The authorities sweep for bodies only on an annual basis, as the forest sits at the base of Mt. Fuji and is too dense to patrol more frequently.
There’s a green 1968 VW Beetle for sale for $6500 near the photo lab and whenever I walk by I just want to buy it.
A$AP Ferg, Bodega BAMZ, the Underachievers, and the Flatbush Zombies
Hip-hop is having a renaissance right now in the city of New York, where it seems like every other day a new MC rises up out of the five boroughs with an even more unique style and approach to the music than what we thought was possible before. Motley crews like the A$AP Mob, the Beast Coast, and World’s Fair have given us a reason to love rhymes again. We’ve written a lot about this stuff, but sometimes words don’t do it justice. So, we’ve linked up with scene insider Verena Stefanie Grotto to document the new New York movement as it happens in real time, with intimate shots of rappers, scenesters, artists, and fashion fiends.
For this installment, Verena caught up with A$AP Ferg, Marty Balla, the Underachievers, and Bodega BAMZ. She then shot photos of the Flatbush Zombies during their headlining set on Brooklyn’s Summer Stage, where she came across a mysterious pile of one-dollar bills.
Summer listening guys.
