Somebody left this in reader Chad V’s bar last night:
We all shit ourselves at the “plan chest piece” entry.
No doubt. Thanks, Chad!
Steal sisters skinny jeans, buy Blue Oyster Cult shirt on EBay for $200, get new sunglasses from Thrift Town, avoid the shower.
Call Dad (for money)
Man this is San Francisco. This list will remain the same for the next 5 to 10 years of this guys life. But, I bet he’ll get the drum sticks.
Great – an OCD drummer! Bet he really swings.
The idea that hipsters call their parents for money is wrong. They usually have a credit card just like everyone else, however the bill goes to their parents address, and they can use the card “when they need”. This can be used for shopping or dinner on Valencia St, paying the cell phone bill, the necessities. Parents will only nag them about the card when it exceeds a certain amount or when they turn 32.
i’m 38 and they still don’t complain
I have a feeling this dude will be avoiding Rachel’s texts at least until his chest piece is done.
The driving test is only $35? Rad.
And the rent on his practice space is only $75? Dang.
Could be in a band with several members that also shares it with other bands.
ours has 3 bands and we have 4 members so we each only end up spending $55 or so.
Rad? We must be really lucky. Ours is $10 or $12.
For those wondering about “chest piece” – an answer in photos here: http://bit.ly/eHLXuj
If anything deserves a bit of planning it’s a chest piece!
It’s not clear if “pay rachel back” involves a loan or some kind of revenge.
I’m still scratching my head over “Buy Ankle Weights.”
I assume ankle weights help to work out your calves so you can really pound on that kick drum in your ironic ragtime band.
Yeah, or so he can make better time on the double bass pedals in his thrash-core side project!
woah i need these!!!
Or he’s Jewish and ankle weights are cheaper than calf implants.
C’mon, the guy’s *gotta* have new jeans, Vans, and shirt if he’s going to ace the interview for that bar/cafe job.
any theories on EED 4/4?
I think he means EDD – unemployment claim
Why does everybody assume it’s a dude?
i agree !!
Had a meeting …. its not a guy
Pay Rachel back…I am still waiting.
I”m still waiting too. It’s been about 4 weeks and I’m about to send my douchebags after this person. They are usually drunk or stoned, so collection could be hilarious or slow as fuck.
I do not understand why most of you think this list is a big deal. He/she plays the drums and rides a bicycle/motorcycle. He/she sounds awesome!
It’s an insanely long list for most of us, that’s why.
Ass Disaster… did you make this list?
Because it’s a boring petty to-do list. I wish my to-do list was that simple and involved such easy tasks. To me this looks like “buy some toys, color, eat a cupcake, jump rope, buy more toys.” Also there was “finish resume” like it was too hard to write in one sitting, and no “spend all day sending people my resume and following up, and interning and volunteering so I can get my foot in the door to contribute to society and pull my own weight” Just “finish resume” followed buy a bunch of “buy new toys, buy new toys, buy new toys.”
Oh please. Unless you’re a combat medic, an ED surgeon or some kind of green engineer, you’re probably not doing anything much nobler. That PR or corporate event planning job is contributing even less to society than this hipster’s band. Hell, if you’re in finance, you’re probably making society even WORSE.
As an office drone, I attest that most people I meet & deal with on a daily basis are infinitely more boring than this kid, especially the hyper-strivers. Would rather hear about a chest piece and a motorcycle than another goddamn ad campaign any day of the week.
Point being, this hipster is not special and neither and you. But only one of you comes off as a judgmental, self-important asshole. (Tho I take this back if you do one of the jobs in the first sentence. In that case, I am the judgmental, self-important asshole. Willing to risk it, tho.)
I’m never getting my frakking money back, am I?
Girl, look at where you are on the list! Say goodbye to that fifty bucks…
I’m weeping withe LOLs.
Nice Battlestar Galactica reference Frak is a fictional version of “fuck,” “shit” or “damn” first used (with the spelling “frack”) in the original Battlestar Galactica series. It continues to be used throughout different versions of the franchise as an expletive.
enough with your filtercarb, nugget….
if you’re gonna get all Sci-fi OG on him about it, it’s ‘feldercarb’.
You guys are KILLING me here … L-O-L !
If there ever was a future Donald Trump…
I understand his need to practice “Space Rent.” As a rendition of the broadway spectacular that takes place in the andromeda galaxy, the zero-gravity recreation is quite taxing on one’s thespian training.
Man, I’m just glad the internet wasn’t around when I was a 22 year-old slacker making lists in a coffeeshop on Valencia.
More evidence hipsters are only smug because they’re poor and miserable.
wait, this is a long list? Most of my lists run two pages.
Nothing really screams hipster on this list to me. Plays the drums and rides a bike? Really? Hipster?
The most epic to-do list I ever found was left by a young boy at his sister’s dance studio. It read:
“Learn how to make: (1) Robots. (2) World War 3. (3) Fractions.”
That’s a kid who knows what his plans are.
Can’t. Stop. Laughing.
I know this guy…his mom owner-move-in evicted us so we had to move to the East Bay.
The only thing funnier is the snide laughter of the anti-hipster hipsters.
maybe this list is his resume? was he hired?
Dude, if he wants a job at Mission Mission, we’d definitely be willing to talk about it.
Wait, do you guys pay people to write for Mission Mission? If so, I will arm wrestle Wong or Sarkarati for their jobs.
“get new debit card” “call customer service for deb…” my personal favorite “file taxes”… love how much money this asshole spends.
This guy is learning to ride a motorcycle, playing drums with a band, getting a chest piece AND a passport while borrowing money from girls.
Meanwhile, I work in a cube farm all day like a sucker!
Chris trying to make the scene is like sooo much work… and it’s really stressful…soooo….
I need to get my hip checked because it’s not cool.
above comments SO FUNNY!!! (not sure how to spell hilarious?) I was just laughing out loud for 10 minutes….
the ‘plan chest piece’ item on the list probably refers to a piece that needs replacing on a plan chest – ie, an architects plan chest used for storing large pieces of paper. JEEZUZ.
Finish resume, file taxes and pay Rachel back belongs on a TO DO list, most of the rest could be a – when the inspiration or necessity hits me – list
Passport could fall into either catagory but since a plane ticket is not on his list I’m guessing he’s not going anywhere soon, at least not before he pays Rachel back!
Lists – gotta love em, one action that creates an even greater and opposite reaction
nobody ever pays me back. fuckers
None of this is ever gonna get done anyway, since he doesn’t have the list.
