Glamour Says to Grit, "Move to Bushwick."

(click ad for closer look)
The EDGE. Williamsburg meets Wall Street. Graffiti meets Givenchy. Indie rock bands meet stone countertops. Radically Chic meets Chicly Radical. Wide open views meet wide open legs. An easy-on-the-eyes logo meets a condo eyesore. Hyperbolic NYC real estate advertising meets a new bullshit buzz phrase.

"Indie rock bands meet stone countertops."

This is possibly the best description I've ever read of my generation (I'm 38).

I've been considering making two t-shirts to help get the message out:

"Shut the fuck up about your counterops" and "Stainless steel appliances suck."

I'll buy five of these right now.

Bohemian meets Bourgeois... Oops, David Brooks already took that one w/ "Bobos in Paradise."

I remember walking in Soho back when they had art galleries and a woman approached me and asked where she could find "Shabby Chic." I looked at her with such distain that she slinked away, ashamed.

Can I suggest that the t-shirt be 2-sided:
Front - Shut the F up about your countertops.
Back - Stainless Steel aplliances suck.

I've had trouble selling t-shirts that actually say "fuck" so maybe "F" would sell better.

And I'll take at LEAST 5 of those shirts, too.
right now.

It's the Edge's way of saying: Hipsters, meet Bushwick.

I was once accused of scratching someone's stainless steel countertops...

I didn't post about that, but I borrowed a few of these lovely links, here:
