‘Unhappy Hipsters’ Makes Us Happy

Hopefully the editors and publishers at Dwell magazine have a sense of humor, because Unhappy Hipsters is one of our favorite new things and we’d love to see it continue. Launched this month (maybe even just this week), the site takes photos from Dwell that show hip people in their hip, modern houses and adds captions that give each picture a dash of discomfort and existential despair. With lines like “He sipped his tepid coffee and pondered how to tell her that, in fact, the pants made the sack dress even less appealing,” it’s wonderfully and hilariously written, and has been all the buzz for the past few days. It’s sort of like Marmaduke Explained for the design set. Fortunately, even though the site uses images swiped from the magazine, it looks like they dig it, given that Dwell‘s managing editor Michele Posner posted on the magazine’s Twitter feed last night, “Admittedly hilarious Dwell sendup!”
