Wishing you a happy Independence Day via obnoxious hipster-y photos.
By Gregory Jacobs-Roseman (Composer Lyricist)
When Instagram became a thing two years ago, I was very reluctant to join. I liked my photos clean and crisp, and my iPhone was very good at doing just that. I thought the whole thing just seemed so hipster-y (a contention to which my dear friend and fellow Friday Crazytown poster Rachel James replied: “Yeah, well, I joined way before everybody else, so…” Fucking hipsters). But friend after friend continued to join, and I got curious. After it was explained to me that there was a social networking aspect to the app, I thought: well, clearly you can never have too many social networks… And like that, a few months ago I bit the bullet and joined.
The thing I’ve noticed is that the app makes especially your stupid pictures (photos of drinks, signs, graffiti, etc.) look less like a waste of time and more like something artistic. I quickly became addicted. For example, I catalogued my 4th of July via Instagram, and I’d like to share it with you now.
My friend Akilah made a flag cake.
So yeah. Addicted. Instagram: making you look like a photographer one crappy photo at a time. Happy 4th.
