Y’all know, if you follow me on Twitter, that I’ve got a love-on for iPhoneography — particularly of the app-mediated, filter-enhanced variety. That said, I’ve always kind of felt that Instagram, Hipstamatic and tools of their ilk were missing something…
When I discovered Straight Thug in the app store, I immediated realized what that something was: a Doo rag. (And also, bouncing low-lows, pimp chalices, vicious dogs, sparkling grills, teardrop tattoos, chains… Ya know, rapper stuff.)
“Straight Thug celebrates the ridiculousness of 90s Hip Hop album art by allowing you to thug out your photos into an animated GIF Hip Hop album cover,” reads the App’s description. “Thug out your photo with a variety of static and animated accessories from lens flares to the hottest rides. Drop in your album title and generate the photo as an animated GIF. Share the platinum GIF with your homies!”
AND I SHALL!
Straight Thug is available for iphone 3Gs, 4, & 4s. Ninety-nine cents well spent, my friends.
Bed time. Weekend has been cray so far, but like a good girl who wants to NOT be sick and exhausted for NXNE, I stayed in this evening to rest, watch basketball and Tweet about NBA hipster fashion.
How was YOUR Saturday night?
Take a few minuntes to watch this if you’re not too busy delivering babies in the back of taxi cabs or something. It’s really good. Better than creeping that chick you worked with for like, 2 months in highschool’s vacation photos on Facebook right now, I promise.
Bravo, Lorena Galliot and Julie Percha! This project is both informative and hilarious. Dope, even. I’m in love with it.
The hipster subculture fascinates me — especially from the other side of my computer screen where I can’t smell it. My hope is to one day visit the hipster homeland myself. I already have the perfect guise. I’ll blend right into the people of Williamsburg!
Back to the editing suite! AKA my converted closet / micro-office…
