200th post! Guess what I spotted yesterday? This sign! Boogaloos is a popular Mission restaurant, which I hear has great brunch. I however, will not go because I despise crowds and waiting. Boogaloos is known for it’s wait! No thanks!
So I’m really excited about them “popping up” at Prada 22 on weekends. Our neighborhood is coming up! Just don’t let the Mission hipsters in on this, okay?! I’m not jealous of all they have in their district or anything, really! Not at all. 
See you at Boogaloos! Afterwards we can hit up Gold Kane for their $12 bottomless mimosas on Sundays. Debauchery in the Haight — let’s do this, hippies!

Prada 22 is located on Haight, between Shrader and Stanyan.

Lana Del Rey to Play Free show at Amoeba!

It’s true - Lana Del Rey at Amoeba, in the Upper Haight, Febuary 9th. It’s a Thursday and it’s at 6pm, so like, you can still get home in time to watch Grey’s Anatomy The Office. Are you going to be there? You can bet your nugs that I will! I have got to see what all the talk is about! And what her lips look like in person! (Though from like a street block away - Amoeba is huge!)

I’m a little torn* with how I feel about Miss Del Rey — however, this tweet by Marissa A. Ross, sums it up perfectly.



Did you see the video of her performance on SNL? I didn’t think it was very good, but I also thought her critics went a little balls to the wall ripping her apart. I’m on the side that thinks she can sing, but was maybe trying a little too hard? Had nerves? Was trying out weird/new stuff with her voice that didn’t end up working? I turned off the video before the performance was over, that’s for sure.




No matter how horrendous everyone thought her performance was, all talk came to a halt once this aired…




Maybe this is the new ‘thing’? Singing terribly on purpose? Roseanne was so ahead of her time! Hipster prediction 2012? I THINK SO!

*When I say torn, I mean that I really don’t give a fuck, but I do like her song Born to Die, which I got on itunes for free.

If you can’t see the videos, you’ll just have to go to upperhaightfog.tumblr.com!

Hipster Predictions 2012

So everyone is like, DUDE ZOOEY DESCHANEL has THE BEST HAIR, and I’m like, really? Yeah, but it’s nothing new*. Jenny Lewis has been rocking that hairstyle since like, 2008. Maybe before that. Look, I’m not gonna lie - I read in Nylon, or Allure or some shit that Zooey and Jenny have the same hair stylist. Are you surprised? No? Rightly so!

Being as how I am so hip, I know what hipsters are gonna do before they do it, and I predict…
A lot of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo esque copying. Just like all guys right now, who hang out in the Mission, look like they belong in 1992 Seattle. Nirvana and Pearl Jam 4evz.

*I love Zooey’s hair. I love Jenny’s hair. I’m not hating. I WANT THAT HAIR!
