Hip to Be Square

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The Times takes a look at the counter-culture to cool today and who did they turn to for a little non-trendy perspective? One of LAist's own, Adrienne Crew. We won't make fun of Adrienne for calling us "youngsters" and instead we'll try to figure out how Christian Chensvold knew about our growing interest in lawn bowling and our intense attraction to chicks who knit.

And, if you didn't know, Adrienne not only showcases her unhipsterism here but also on her own site - LA Brain Terrain.
