Q: Who would you crown as the hipster king: Orson Welles, Oscar Wilde, or Andy Warhol

Warhol for sure.

Artiste, had weird hair, fancy parties at his workspace-turned-exclusive haunt, sexually ambiguous, associated with the It band (Velvet Underground) of the time, dabbled in film and photography, dabbled in music, basic dilettante, non-committal soundbites, a book is published posthumously ABOUT said soundbites (From A to B and Back Again), hung out with pixie-cut blond trust fund babies wearing lots of eye liner (Edie Sedgwick), coke, wore tight pants, got shot and lived, got shot and didn't live...

I mean, I could go on. But I won't.
But I could! Just know that I could...
