      On my way to work this morning, in Silverlake (Sunset Junction), just north of downtown LA:



      What is Silverlake? It's "America's Best Hipster Neighborhood."

      http://www.forbes.com/sites/morganbr...neighborhoods/

      Silver Lake takes the top spot on Forbes’ inaugural list of America’s Best Hipster Neighborhoods. Nestled between Echo Park and Los Feliz, the trendy community boasts some of the nation’s most lauded food trucks and farmers markets, a multicultural blend of residents with eclectic professions, and a booming arts scene. Even the buildings exude an avant garde aesthetic a hipster could love: Silver Lake is home to some of the most celebrated modernist architecture in the country, including Richard Neutra’s VDL Research House and John Lautner’s Silvertop.

      “It is amazing how many artists, musicians and designers and more traditionally ‘hipster’ occupations live in Silver Lake,” says Dabney Lawless, a vice president of Nextdoor.com, a private social network for neighborhoods. “It just blows every other neighborhood away.” In other words, if you want to slurp Pabst Blue Ribbon in your skinny jeans, you won’t be alone.
      Apologies for:
      1. Unsteady camera
      2. Low resolution video
      3. Crappy Master P song from 1997 (was playing on Backspin XM at the time)

      On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit.' As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high - Ayton Senna

      That's funny. I got dragged there by a hipster work colleague of mine last time I was in LA. I didn't know I was in a hipster zone at the time, but now it all makes sense.

      New Golf is so ordinary looking that I completely missed the first 3 in a row. There are still almost as many Prius.

      Vad - YouTube has a shaky video fix feature. Try it out.

      Four Golfs (plus Vads) and only two Priuses?
      What bizarro universe has Silverlake turned into?

      And hipsters bum rides off other people.
