Remembering Elephant 6

Great book about NMH. It was my first of many from this 33 1/3 series.

333sound

In honor of this week’s anniversary of Olivia Tremor Control member Bill Doss’s death, 333Sound takes a brief look back at the Elephant 6 Recording Company (and its extensive family tree).

As Kim Cooper documented in her now iconic 33 1/3 In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, something extraordinary was happening in Athens, Georgia, when Jeff Magnum, William Cullen Hart, and Bill Doss emerged in the music scene as Synthetic Flying Machine. Recently transplanted from the small neighboring towns of Ruston and Dubach in Louisiana and already flying under the elusive banner of The Elephant 6 Recording Company, SFM would bring a new, DIY, pop-psychedelic sound to the then predominately grunge landscape of Athens—a musical style (and way of life) that would linger in the community for years to come.

Hip book review…A Hipster Joke Book

a hipster joke bookI picked up A Hipster Joke Book (written by someone you’ve probably never heard of) at the clearance table at Urban Outfitters the other day.

It was on sale for $2. It’s originally marked as being $8. I’d say it’s worth the $2 as a conversation piece and to add to my hipster book collection. If I had paid the original price, I would feel very ripped off.

There is only one joke per page, so there’s only around 50 jokes. You could probably read the whole thing standing at the shelf in the store.

The best of all the jokes I’ve heard before. And I’ve posted it on this blog before…You may remember it?

Q: How did the hipster burn his mouth?

A: He drank coffee before it was cool.

One other good joke was (sorry to be a spoiler)…

Q: Why didn’t the hipster listen to his parents?

A: Because he only listens to vinyl.

Most of the other jokes are pretty stupid and really reaching for hipster humor.

I can’t really recommend this book unless you get it very cheap. You can probably find a lot better jokes by just searching for ‘Hipster Jokes’ on Google.
