I Like When Things that Don’t Belong Together, Come Together

MSTRKRFT and John Legend recorded a track together? Crazy, I know.  But the result, actually really kind of works.  I’m a sucker for a dope beat, and this my friends, is a pretty good beat (I mean, hello, it is MSTRKRFT).

Below, the video for “Heartbreaker”.  After watching this, I realized I really don’t spend as much time in The Mission as I should.

I actually really like this

I actually really like this

*Where: The Mission, aka Little Williamsburg.

What: Brooklyn’s satellite West Coast hipster state.

Who Lives There: Hipsters, Mexican immigrants, and oh yeah, hipsters.

Why: Because you love: going days on end without bathing, ill-founded pretention, dirty clothes and unwashed hair, “irony”, bicycles, vegan diets, trust funds, working on your “art”, tattoo sleeves, eating disorders, American Apparel, buying organic, being the first to discover bands before they “sell-out”, snorting coke, Tecate beer, and anything else that’s better than being a Yuppy.

*It should be noted, that while the author of this post makes fun of The Mission, she also kind of enjoys it there.

Next Time: The Marina; you found all the Yuppies, but tell me, where did their souls go?
