From Hipster To Hippie, A Cautionary Tale

From Hipster To Hippie, A Cautionary Tale: “Hanah Snavely wrote about The Rise and Fall of Hippie Hill in San Francisco on The Bold Italic and included a wonderful graphic by Volume Inc. showing how a hipster might morph into a hippie.

(via Laughing Squid.)

Reminds me of a button I used to wear in high school: “Hippies with Haircuts.”

If you haven’t already, check out The Bold Italic from which this originated:

The Bold Italic is an experiment in local discovery.

Just when you thought you were a pretty savvy local, along came The Bold Italic. Our mission is to help people become better locals, equipping our members with rare local intel, backstory and potential adventures.

Our writers, the Bold Locals, find their way behind-the-scenes in San Francisco and come back with backstories of distinctive, offbeat local experiences.

Oh - and hello to Jason Isaacs.

The 400 Blows


is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.


What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
