Mary Phillip ThomasHipGnotism: Hipster Culture as Trance-State, an Enlightenment in Three Happenings
by Mary Phillip Thomas



Elektra FeltIdéeFixie: Hipster Cyclery as a-Priori Assumption, an Obsession in a Single Speed
by Elektra Felt

Felt points out what we all already knew: hipsterism, rather than being some constant striving for the new and the now, is really just the promotion of what was always already there. The theory of constant-state hipsterism argues that a certain segment of the population will forever be hipster, no matter how many razors are sold.

by Mazi Oake-Brechaut

Lann TernThe Camus Canoe: Recreational Journeys on the River of Void
by Lann Tern

Owen Ford DokkensChristopher Hitchen-Post: the Western Epic and the Future of Organized Atheism, a Standoff at High Noon
by Owen Ford Dokkens

Dokkens' post-Freudian gunslinging included an analysis of archetypes: the lawman, the Quaker, the lapsed lawman, the pastor-charlatan, the barman, the rancher, and, notably, the rancher's daughter, all to show how little things have really changed.

Flügel WhangThe Wife of Three-and-a-Half Baths: Real Estate TV as Chaucerian Polyglossia
by Flügel Whang

No matter what, they all want the same thing: salvation in granite and stainless steel.
