Yet more L.A. signs I don’t understand

We were in L.A. again last weekend (my husband goes for work and I sometimes tag along) and I saw yet another sign I don’t get:


Why is JFK telling hipsters to beware?

Also, is this Vincent Gallo or Joaquin Phoenix? And why are either on a poster like this?

Vincent Gallo or Joaquin Phoenix?

If you saw a lot of the second poster, maybe they are part of a guerilla marketing campaign for Magnolia’s upcoming documentary on Joaquin Phoenix and his idiosyncratic career decisions. If so, I guess they’re working.

The first poster seems to tell you to be on your guard for hipsters. Sometimes these things are done for ironic value.

I did see a lot of these, J.B., but for the first 5 or so I kept wondering “is that Vincent Gallo?”

And I’m always on guard for hipsters, Oilybird. Always.

We’re sooooooo way more hipper than you here in California.
