Funny and True: The Generic, Post-Industrial Snobby Hipster Craftsman

created at: 07/14/2011

Comedian Russ Armstrong profiles Stevenson Birtch, a character he created to explore an emerging stereotype: the flannel-wearing, loft-meets-workspace living post-contemporary craftsman who does things like, “make woven belts out of reclaimed Civil War horse saddles,” and builds all his own tools using smaller tools, that he also made himself. And you know, whittles his own toothpicks, and pulps his own toilet paper.

You know the type.

Watch the video. It’s funny.
