Yeah, I know. It's been so long since I blogged. I've made a New Years resolution to post more. In my defense, I've been busy wrapping up post on the feature I co-directed with Alex and Paul Cannon. More on that to come, but I'd like to make my return to blogging with this painfully glorious piece of hate mail that my good friend Karina Longworth received yesterday. As far as we can tell, it's in reference to this post on Lindsay Lohan.


It’s obvious that your critiques are second rate Hipster Non-sense. I suggest you leave pop culture commentary to those of us who truly love cinema. you seem like a typical awkward brunette that attended Pratt (pick any pretentious art school) and majored in film studies just to feel superior to people when you tell them you are a film critique when you attend shows at the knitting factory or whatever you people do in Williamsburg I'm sure it involves shopping at American apparel and taking goofy Polaroids of each other. I bet you long for the day you get a chance to meet Vincent Gallo so you can say " Honestly, I could have done that way better than Chloe sevingy"

Drug addiction is a disease, no matter who a person is whether they are famous or not, and just because they are famous doesn't mean you get to trivialize what they are going through..I know that is hard for you to understand, because people like you think the only form of human suffering is going without the ability to be ironic and obscure.

Go back to browsing on your Mac book, fix your side swept bangs, and eat shit.

If I ever happen to run into you in NY, I'm going to spit right on your vintage shoes. ::::give finger:::

For those of you who don't know Karina, the only thing about her that could be considered remotely hipster is her appearance (and that's just me talking. She would like to state for the record "that, in the interest of hygiene, I NEVER wear vintage shoes.") She does not live in Willliamsburg, nor did she attend Pratt. Congratulations, writer. You've won The Most Hilariously Obnoxious Person I or Any of My Friends Will Hear From award for 2008 and the year is eight days old.

    Chuck, I'm less bothered by the "hipster" than by the "second-rate." What can I say––I'm a perfectionist.

    Erin more or less stole my comment, but as someone who is hopelessly lost in flyover country, I gotta ask: Is there really anything that wrong with being a PBR drinking hipster in the first place?

    There is one part that's accurate: I am kind of an awkward brunette. But neither is an affectation.
