Modern malaise

The concept of unhappy hipsters is pretty genius. You know all those home decor catalogs you have floating around, even though you can’t afford anything in them except for one candlestick? And those cutting-edge architecture blogs? Isn’t there something weird about them? Yeah, the people. What’s with them? Why are they all so contemplative all the time? How can they afford these surroundings when they look too depressed to get up off that $10k Danish Modern sofa? This blog zeroes right in on that disconnect, and it’s pretty funny.

Within the settings of these photos- stunning interiors, the whole big gorgeous world visible through airy windows- there are young, attractive people who look desperately alone. Throw in some snarky commentary, and I was hooked. Apparently, this is the modern zeitgeist. Enjoy.
