Trustafari !

Think SNL has been spot-on in their election08 satire? Their send up of shanty-dorm trustafarians is just as hilarious, at least to someone like I&I —

(thx to joe schloss for making sure i saw this)

    Since when did rollerskates become a staple of trustafarianism? I didn’t even know what I was conforming to =P

    maybe its my overworked school network- but the video doesnt seem to cache- only to stream- meaning SLOW stuttery shit- either way- less of these kids here then other places- but the type still holds

    i like the way his passing awareness of being contemplated by blacks drives him to mumbles, the very power of speech slips away.


I'm a techno-musicologist, internet annotator, imagined community organizer.

I left my <3 in the digital global, but I reside in Cambridge, MA, where I'm from.

I represent like that.
