we have found the evidence that animals too want to take part of the hipster’s revolution!
As we mentioned it few days ago… WE are EVERYWHERE!!!
Thank you Brain Magazine for this photo.
Don’t you think these are really cute?? You can choose your favorite one and share it in the comments 🙂
I personally like the 5th lama with his Ziggy Stardust / Kiss haircut.
“I was made for loving you!”
Hey everyone !
I’ve just found those cool artworks made with very uncool personalities. An artist worked on many dictators portraits so that they look like hipster people. The effect of his work is really funny. Take a look !
Last but not least, because Berliner’s most famous despot is not on this list, I recommend you to visit the Hipster Hitler website. Funny comics about an Hipster version of Hitler.
See you soon and have a nice day with those guys !! … Or not.
We hope you all had a nice long weekend. It was sunny, it was warm, it was great. This past monday was also a bank holiday in Germany, so a lot of people went outside to ride bikes and enjoy the sun. Or, as I mentioned it in a post a few days ago, they also all took their barbecues out and went grilling tons of Wurst and Halloumi (yes, being vegetarian is cool).
Although some people seem to not like us, it looks like the Hipster attitude is expanding slowly but wisely, and because we like to keep an eye on what people say about us, we have found some pretty interesting articles that might be worthwhile reading :
=> Do you know whether you’ve become a Berliner Hipster? Read here and see whether you pass the test!
=> Where to go if you want to meet Hipsters and you happen to be in Berlin? All the best spots are mentioned here!
=> You’re a Hipster from LA and you want to connect with Hipsters in Berlin? Look, there’s a super easy way to connect now!
And last but not least, who is the best capital in the world to attract young, cool, positive people with a Hipster vibe? BERLIN of course!
Convinced being a Hipster is the way to go? We will post more articles in the next days and we are sure you will all be dying to attend our Berlin Hipster Festival!!!
… And hopefully these messages won’t appear too much anymore…!
This video will show you all the clichés of the hipster community.
It’s fresh, it’s hilarious and well… We guess that it is true.
So good to laugh about ourselves too 😀
Don’t forget to watch the LineUp of the Berlinhipsterfestival2012 and post a comment with the bands that you would like to see at the festival 🙂
This Saturday evening, the Eurovision Contest in Baku will be retransmitted on TV all over the world.
Just would like to send you a little reminder for this performance because it is about music, peace and love in the world, and as you have noticed it is exactly our ambitions for the Berlinhipsterfestival2012 🙂
You don’t know s*** about the origins of the Eurovision? Let ask our best friend:
In the 1950s, as a war-torn Europe rebuilt itself, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU)—based in Switzerland—set up an ad-hoc committee to search for ways of bringing together the countries of the EBU around a “light entertainment programme”. At a committee meeting held in Monaco in January 1955, director general of Swiss television and committee chairman Marcel Bezençon conceived the idea of an international song contest where countries would participate in one television programme, to be transmitted simultaneously to all countries of the union. The competition was based upon the existing Sanremo Music Festival held in Italy, and was also seen as a technological experiment in live television: as in those days, it was a very ambitious project to join many countries together in a wide-area international network. Satellite television did not exist, and the so-called Eurovision Network comprised a terrestrial microwave network. The concept, then known as “Eurovision Grand Prix”, was approved by the EBU General Assembly in at a meeting held in Rome on 19 October 1955 and it was decided that the first contest would take place in spring 1956 in Lugano, Switzerland. The name “Eurovision” was first used in relation to the EBU’s network by British journalist George Campey in the London Evening Standard in 1951.
The first contest was held in the town of Lugano, Switzerland, on 24 May 1956. Seven countries participated—each submitting two songs, for a total of 14. This was the only contest in which more than one song per country was performed: since 1957 all contests have allowed one entry per country. The 1956 Contest was won by the host nation, Switzerland.
The programme was first known as the “Eurovision Grand Prix”. This “Grand Prix” name was adopted by the Francophone countries, where the contest became known as “Le Grand-Prix Eurovision de la Chanson Européenne”. The “Grand Prix” has since been dropped and replaced with “Concours” (contest) in these countries. The Eurovision Network is used to carry many news and sports programmes internationally, among other specialised events organised by the EBU. However, in the minds of the public, the name “Eurovision” is most closely associated with the song contest
At the Berlinhipsterfestival2012 we already have 2 winners for the 2012 edition:
Ireland and the crazy twins:
And Russia and the old pretty women:
But our favorite competitor for this edition has unfortunately not made it to represent Austria for the competition.
As we are gay and bear friendly, here is Conchita Wurst with That’s what I am and a positive message of self acceptation:
More excited news about the show on the official website of the Eurovision.
What country are you for?
This past week has experienced a tremendous change in weather temperature in our wonderful city of Berlin.
That was yesterday at 6:23 PM :
That’s today at 2:36PM. Just like a Groundhog Day!!!
Pretty damn hot, right?
If you feel like getting your barbecue out and grill some meat and veggies, and even if you can’t because you have no balcony or the neighbours are not much into barbecued meat, don’t forget there are plenty of public parks in Berlin where you can go grill some halloumi without disturbing anyone ! Indeed the city of Berlin has even posted a map online where you can all see all the cool grilling spots.
And if you also want to check the grilling weather forecasts, the reference in weather forcasting in Germany even tells you the grilling condition forecasts, ain’t that grand!
Here is a snapshot of the sausage cooking forecasts for today. The more sausages there are on the little barbecues, the better it is for running out the door to the next park!
But wait. Why are we talking about this today? Because at the 2012 Edition of the Berlin Hipster Festival, you will be able to bring your own barbecue as well!!!!!
Indeed, Tempelhof has the privilege to have 3 different areas where you can grill sausages and stuff. So during the Festival, there will be plenty of time to chill out on the grass on the designated grilling areas.
And if you still can’t find them, be sure you will spot the areas : usually the big cloud of sausage smoke can be seen from pretty far away…!
So put on your apron and let’s go!!!
We would like to introduce you the awesome font that we have chosen for the festival – which is part of our official Graphic Chart.
This is the “Berlin without FB“!
Obviously we chose it because of the name (Berlin, du bist so wunderbar!), of course.
The font also has a dynamic and airy form, and corresponds brilliantly to our philosophy.
As Microsoft says:
“Berlin Sans is based on a brilliant alphabet from the late twenties, the first without ever Designed That Lucian Bernhard, imaginative and little-known. Assisted by Matthew Butterick, David Berlow expanded the single font Into a series of weights oven, full oven with all character sets Expert, plus one dingbat font”.
What about you, do you have a favorite font?
Put a comment and let’s have a little talk about it 🙂
