Hipster Henry Hudson

hipster henry hudson by AlbanyArchivesWe started goofing around today with @AlbanyArchives about the idea of Hipster Henry Hudson. It was prompted by AA's note about the Hudson River's name before, you know, the Half Mooning. Anyway:

@AllOverAlbany: "I'll be exploring the Grande River. It's in America. Very obscure. You probably haven't heard of it." #hipsterHenryHudson

@AlbanyArchives: "The Dutch offered me a Full Moon but I turned them down. Told them I'd only take half." #hipsterHenryHudson

@bdiddy100: "You know I had the first horn-rimmed spyglasses." #hipsterHenryHudson

And then Albany Archives created the image on the right.

Sometimes you just need a hipster portrait of a famous explorer to get you through the day.

Roll your own: AA has posted a blank version of the hipster Henry Hudson image if you'd like to your own Hipster Hudson quote. And here's one by @Bullmooser12.

The link for the blank version you posted actually goes to the hipster version.

@Rhea: It's a blank hipster version so people can add their own Hipster Henry Hudson quote. I should have made that more clear in that sentence. It's been updated. Thank you.

I've seen plenty of meme trolling online, but this is the first instance of meme trawling I've witnessed.

Thanks for the explanation. I thought it would be an image of the portrait, sans graffiti.

Are you guys on Pinterest? If not, do you mind if I share Hipster Henry with my Pinterest followers?

@Rhea: We do have a Pinterest (board/page/thing). The Henry Hudson image is pinned here:

... I'm not saying I don't want this area developed, I do. I just want it done the right way and frankly I don't care if that means there's a big gaping hole at that corner for years. The hard part was getting rid of that eyesore of a city hall in the first place and that's done. We already backed out of one deal, there's no shame in backing out of another or putting the sale on hold until all the appropriate questions are asked and answered. ...
