Hipsters in my basement!! Thank You!!

  • Ok maybe its time for a good old argument distraction..
    But


    I love Hipsters!
    In fact I love them so much I would like to never use that word again, at least as a slur.


    If it wasn't for a rag tag team of skinny tattooed nose rings skinny jeans all the stuff bunch of dudes and dudettes helping me clean I would be weeks, months behind in getting my house barely livable.


    And by clean I mean the worst form of Hell you could ever imagine.  I have a 4.5 foot sealed crawlspace below my house that has been bone dry since the house was built.  Irene, Noreasterns, everyone flooded but me.  So we would let friends put all sorts of extra sh!t down there.  As well as our own..
    Sandy flooded it, full of human sewage. It was dark, cold, foul as foul could be, and you had to crawl through it.


    The volunteers jumped right in, pulling what was probably 75 lbs tupperware tote after toe out of a small trapdoor that leads down to it.  This was a real Hell job!!
    Then they came back the next day and did it all again pulling out the insulation.  Even I came out with infected wounds!


    Who? the volunteers from RBSC, Random single speed bike dudes, Everyone that everyone calls a hipster..Guess what, they effing rock.


    There were lots of stories of bad human behavior, but Im going to ignore (but not forget) and concentrate on this group of unbelievable above and beyond group.
    Thank you, hell most of them didn't even surf.
    Thank you.


    There was even a fight that broke out with someone who lived on my street, He was mad and told me I was just a hipster..yeah thats ok, Im good with that.

  • Awesome story, JScott. I keep saying it, we'll all get through this with the help of friends, neighbors, and even the helping hands of strangers. So I guess it doesn't matter if the strangers are hipsters or martians - if they're willing to help and are good people, it's all good!

  • jscott is pretty accurate with his description of the volunteers, but he had on the most interesting outfit out of anyone.  I didn't have the heart to tell him it wasn't halloween.  He had been through enough already.

  • Dudes, 3 woman from Williamsburg (literally) Sarah, Sarah and Ashely (not funking Joking) came to my block yesterday and asked if they could help. Their appeared like angles worked like machines and left. They took no water, no food and pushed us forward and egged us on to work harder. I got the love for hipsters, Williamsburgers or whatever you want to call them. NY'ers gave of themselves and I'm in awe.

    Bloomy does disappoint!

  • No joke.  I will NEVER EVER forget the people who showed up at our house, put on some gloves and got busy.  You guys know who you are. I'm forever in debt to you.  Any of you ever need anything at all I better be the first person you call. 
    You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

  • And there's tons more out there who want to help more.  Lots of people just need direction.  It's pretty intimidating for weirdos with angular haircuts to approach normal humans to ask if they need help.

    So if you know someone in direct need reach out here and I can help direct helpfulhipsters to you.
