"Best to keep the gingers behind bars."--Unhappy Hipsters blog

To our wonderful, funny, and sarcastic readers and visitors–

This month, Dwell features the Julie Snow-designed home of the Walker’s very own Andrew Blauvelt and Scott Winter. The first thing I did after I viewed the slideshow (or maybe even before) was pop over to the blog Unhappy Hipsters, whose sole purpose is to write tongue-in-cheek melancholy narratives for the photos in modern home design publications. I was rewarded with the picture and caption above.

Now it is your turn to show off your caption-writing prowess. Take a look through the entire Blauvelt/Winter residence slideshow (shot by Dean Kaufman), pick an image, and write a caption. Leave a comment with your contact information, a link to which photo you are captioning, and your caption.

The winner receives two tickets to the Yves Klein After Hours Preview Party on October 22.

I think this one has some possibilities:

Play nice and happy writing!

    Watermelon, strawberries and Texas toast seemed like the perfect complement to the PBR and Prosecco his friends usually brought to his dinner parties.

    In the end it was his manner of dress, deliberately clashing with her decor that provoked Celeste to send him packing.

    No different than anyone else, Roger has a true Love-Hate relationship with computers.

    Miffed that the architect’s cruel joke of a cement wall behind every curtain had become an Internet punch line, Scott turns to white wine and revenge.

    The party guests felt Andrew and Scott had taken their new raw foods diet too far.

    There was no end in sight to the three-day silent standoff over whose turn it was to water the lamp.

    The ghost mother and ghost father scolded their ghost children for bring their Macbooks to the dinner table. “You’re going to spill spaghetti all over the keyboard!” they cried in ghost unison.

  • Jeremy says:

    Behind the curtain he was vulnerable, but no one seemed to care.

    The sound of her frail lungs filling with water woke him from his haze. The iced darjeeling would have to wait, she had found a way out.

  • Elena says:

    They got an official caption on unhappyhipsters…..

  • So completely and totally love Dwell. Wish I has found this sooner…

  • Pictures can tell! He’s thinking of something!

  • Inevitably, there will be more than the usual amount of drinking and quite possibly a stripper. Your negative attitude to this can ruin the evening for him. He wants to make you happy – he has asked you to marry him! So, imposing unrealistic expectations or limitations, will mar what could just have been an evening of exuberance and letting off the steam of pre-wedding jitters. However, it is a good idea to spell out your limitations in terms of his behaviour (within reason).
