‘Premium Rush’ Bingo: Spot the Hipster-isms

I’ve railed against the word “hipster” for a while now. For the most part, it has lost most of its meaning, but after seeing Premium Rush, I know there are places this word still exists. And one of those places is in the world of bike messengers in New York City (at least according to the film’s version of bike messengers in New York City). Because I’m not a total killjoy, I agreed to get in on the fun and make a little game out of it. Accurate or not, the film includes more than a few nods to the not-so-counter-culture set, leaving us with only one choice: Bingo, Hipster Edition. 

Take this board to the theater with you when you head out to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt dodge taxis in Midtown, and I’d bet an ironic ’80s T-shirt you’ll get a Bingo.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
