Knowledge is power

December 14, 2007

In the relentless quest to be cooler than everyone else, the world of the urban hipster has been slammed for some time and the “slamming” has become an industry in its own right.

This t-shirt, available for sale on Threadless sums up the irony perfectly.


The copy promoting the t-shirt is pretty good as well.

“Is this type tee a badge of honor highlighting the wearer’s unique
tastes in off-the-beaten-path music and other such awesomeness ignored
by mainstream culture, an ironic indictment of others who condemn you
for listening to a band once they sell fifty copies of their first
album, or just about having imaginary marching bands cascading through
your head at all times of the night and day? YES!”
