Hipster Bloom, Con Man In Progress #FridayRecommends

I know, everybody’s all down on hipsters. Hipsters probably sneer at other hipsters for being hipsters, because being a hipster is, like, last week. But hipster food? You gotta love a site called hipster food. Doesn’t the very idea of food in a pony tail and black horn-rimmed glasses make you smile? I know it does me. They are vegan, baby, and they post nifty recipes and food tips. I do love me some good vegan food. Hop over and see what you think.

Bloom is another blog written by an Indiana foodie, this one years younger than I. Decades, possibly close to a century younger than I. Claire is a hoot, and she has some intimidating impressive recipes. I like to read them.

Mrs. AOK: A Work in Progress is always interesting, usually amusing, unfailingly engaging. I particularly like this post about shoes. Because: shoes.

And. AND. AND. AND… Guys, Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion are making a web series!!!!! All the fan girls and boys are squealing like this: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! You know, like I just did! They started an Indiegogo campaign for Con Man (the name of the series — con as in Convention, not as in confidence) yesterday, hoping to raise $450,000 to get started and, by the time this post goes live, will probably have raised a million and a half dollars, because they were almost at that last night, and I haven’t checked yet this morning. I kicked in $15. You’re welcome.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character has to cook for someone they admire greatly. Bonus points if you can work shoes into the scene or storyline.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Oh thank you, thank you, thank you, Marian!

    Hipster food- I love it! For #NaBloPoMo I had to come up with an imaginary company, I chose a coffee company, “Stelladolares” they sold a drink called the Mason Jar. 🙂
    “NO, you don’t have to be a hipster to order the Mason Jar– I promise it’s good!”

    I cannot wait to check out these links, thanks!
    Wishing you a beautiful weekend!
