    Thanks for the Lord Buckley clip. Far too few folks are aware of him, and his influence on so many comedians. I can hear his influence in Carlin, Pryor, Bruce, Williams, and many others.

    * NSFW "I'm Hip" Starts around 1:45 if you don't want to watch the whole clip.

    The tenor player's outfit is hip – or hep?

    Baseball hats are ironic on anyone who isn't on a baseball team.

    Play ball!

    No question! And relating a business model to hipness made me wonder what's hip these days.

    At least not without bright orange socks. Now that's hip.

    That's the real deal..saw them several times and they just blew me away. "What's hip today might become passe...." IMO, the sooner those skinny jeans for guys become passe, the better...:lol:

    Venmo is an excellent app for money exchange. The weird part is that its default mode is to share your transactions with all your friends who use Venmo unless you turn on privacy. So I found out that a dude whose son plays hockey with my son recently bought a “Classic 70s Midget Porn” collection. Not hip. Creepy.

    you don't think that maybe he was 'hip' to the info sharing on venmo and put something 'funny' in there to shock and amuse? I'd bet that was the case... we use it often and make jokes knowing it will be seen.

    Yeah, but how do you ask? It’s like asking a woman when her baby’s due and finding out she’s just fat.

    I don't need to 'know'. What is the REAL likelihood that the dude REALLY venmoed for midget porn? I can't begin to know what your peer circle is, but, in mine, it is highly unlikely that A) folks would be interested in the collection and B) they'd use venmo (where you to WRITE what your purpose was for the purchase) and 'own it'... versus someone making a joke and having a laugh... 'what are you reading?' 'my collection of 70's midget porn'

    c'mon baby! what is the more likely scenario? one of my friends got venmoed after a minor dispute with a co worker and the reason was 'piece in the valley' which the homonym error was intended hoping that maybe the guy's wife would get mad... alas, subtlety is mostly lost in this world and nobody noticed any of it.... except when he pointed it out.

    I think your buddy was joking, but, maybe you konw more about him.... is his name Peter?

    And what's with those button-down shirts you can't tuck in? (And don't get me started on relic-ed blue jeans . . . .)

    I once whistled down a cab for Dave Garibaldi in Chicago. I thought he was hip enough to do it himself, but I had to.
