The mysterious lifestyle center will be three stories tall and probably contain nothing but phrenology busts. More
File this one under “Wonderful, Beautiful Irony”: Girls Gone Wild creator and notable horrible person Joe Francis may have a sex tape scandal on his hands because his and girlfriend Abbey Wilson‘s privacy was invaded. Insert ironic z-snap. More
An Urban Outfitters is coming to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that will serve food as well as overpriced, transparent “slub tees.” While they may just keep serving $19 veggie plates, I hope it’ll much more entertaining that that. More

I feel like I’m never into ironic facial hair, but it could be funny for 7.5 minutes. But that’s me! You?
Today, Gawker reports on one of the most compelling works of art of our generation — a trap for hipsters, set up in New York.
