Here at The Airspace we sometimes get a bum rap for being hipsters or hipster-esque (whatever that might mean). Sometimes our musings on technology, culture, and scholarship are laced with a subtle hint of irony but for the most part, our work is as sincere as can be (see here, here, here, and here for stellar examples). If our goal was post modernist cynicism, we would own it through and through.
It’s not, though.
The Harvard Sailing Team (a sketch comedy group in New York whose members neither went to Harvard nor sail) decided to tear open Thanksgiving, a presumably sincere holiday, with typical hipster snark. The first bit includes a group of not-so-thankful hipsters sitting in silence Instagraming their meals which roughly falls in line with reality. On Thanksgiving day, Instagram reported over 10 million photos tied to the Thanksgiving theme—Instagram really is for photographing food.
Enjoy, be Sincere, and don’t let some “inanimate disc tell you the alpha and omega of your Earth bounty.”
