As a middle-aged pseduo-hipster, a new Aimee Mann album is already a big deal, and it’s even a bigger deal when it comes with a video starring John Hodgman and Laura Linney. I don’t think the video is especially good, but I like the song.
Of course, the real dilemma for any hipster is what to do when your cool little thing goes mainstream. The new movie, Premium Rush is about a bicycle messenger riding a fixie, so I think those are no longer as cool as the hipsters who I see riding them probably think they are. Brakes will probably be the new hotness in Williamsburg this fall.
Here’s an open thread.
