Comedian Joe Mande launched his Tumblr blog, Look at This Fucking Hipster (latfh.com), in April 2009, as a means of illustrating the many facets of hipsterdom for his perplexed father. A year later, thousands of people who’ve never been to Williamsburg know exactly what hipsters in their various sects look like, from fixed-gear bikers to bacon-eating vegans to turntable-owning, deep-V-neck-wearing Bolao devotees. Anyone can view young, intoxicated young people sporting asymmetrical, asexual haircuts or ironically detached college students who appear to be auditioning for a mumblecore movie on Mande’s blog; now, you can also cherish them forever in his new book by the same name, out Tuesday 30. (We recommend buying it at Urban Outfitters.) In honor of its release, we asked Mande to provide us with outtake captions for ten of his priceless pictorial gems—notably, where, exactly, you might find these particular fucking hipsters in New York City. Click through, then celebrate at the book party with Mande, Reggie Watts and Kristen Schaal. You’ll feel like a loser if you don’t wear your American Apparel leggings, and an even bigger loser if you do.—Sharon Steel
