It's cold out there -- which means that maybe, just maybe, there won't be an hour-long line outside of Voodoo Doughnut, as there has been so any mornings since the Oregon-based outfit opened its first store outside that state on East Colfax Avenue in December. And the crowds have inspired almost as much discussion as the doughnuts themselves. See also: Voodoo Doughnut's magic is in the hole.
It's pretty funny to drive down Colfax on a weekend morning and see herds of hipster dipshits lined up and waiting for hours for a box of donuts. The idiots waiting in line actually think of themselves as "cultural creatives" but they are just as herd-like as any other sociological in-group.
Keep telling yourselves that your beards and styles of jeans are avant garde and non-conformist while smoking cigarettes and waiting hours in line for trendy, over-hyped breakfast pastries, by all means. In ten years you will cringe with embarrassment when forced to look at your old "selfies."The hipster lifestyle will be seen as just as idiotic and pathetic as '80s hair metal or Goth is today.
