  • For the price of a 99-cent iPhone app, this existence can be yours...
For those wishing to become "hipsters" -- scrupulously dressed young adults with strong ideas about white-person music -- but uncertain how to begin, a new iPhone/iPod application points the way.

BeVideo, which also provides iPhone guides to bankruptcy and yoga, has produced a "complete guide on how to be a hipster."

By lowering the hipster bar, this app promises to spread ironically worn cowboy shirts beyond their Mission District confines. Lacking sufficient record store jobs, they'll open stores of their own, creating a local economic renaissance, making available money for Deep Vs and Phils.

According to the app's ad copy:

"Hipster, you'll learn all the basics of the hipster lifestyle, from how

to make your own skinny jeans, to how to cruise around on your hipster

1-speed, to how to perfect your hipster attitude."

The new app also includes a message board, allowing neophytes to "share

your favorite lifestyle tips with other aspiring hipsters."

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
