Whoever’s behind the five-day-old Diplo Outtie blog clearly wants to accomplish two things: 1) to be passed around on iPhones next week at the SXSW Fader Fort; and 2) to get his ass beat. The gist: Yung Dip likes to pose for photos with a two-fingers extended, all “peace outtie,” and the Diploutticous Tumblr is a growing taxonomy of photographic evidence quasi-couched as “a case study in North American faux urban youth culture.” Naturally, Outtie’s blogroll bros with Hipster Runoff.
Consider this the Hollertronix wing of Stage Dumps–when Wes Pentz is making a sad face and flashing the sign, here it’s labeled the “Poutie Outtie.” There’s already a call for “fake outties”–phantom gang signs crudely P-Shopped onto Diplo party pix–and the “k-fed lip curl” outtie. (Word of backlash-steering advice to all future urban-spoofing theme bloggers: get SFJ to follow you on Twitter before you resort to crowdsourcing.) Crotchdubs, we hardly knew ye.
