What appears to have touched down in your sewing room after sewing with fun fur.
While prepping for Burning Man and Otherworld, it appeared a furnado had touched down in the sewing room. Fur was everywhere!
This is a subject adopted by a nerd to conceal his or her typical intellectual pursuits. The selected subject is often something not associated with nerd/geek culture but the nerdy persona can invest his or her intellectual capacity into. Instead of seeming pedantic the knowledge of the subject may be seen as admirable. The subject can be almost anything such as sports, agriculture, beer, cars, or crafts.
The interest goes beyond being a hobby as the nerd using nerd cover will either avoid or down play other subjects that might reveal their innate personality. Nerd cover can be used to redirect a conversation from traditionally nerdy subjects to being used to dilute obvious nerdiness in an individual's interests.
"Man, Brian seems like a total nerd."
"Maybe, but did you know he keeps goats and chickens?"
"That's just his nerd cover, don't get him started on the latest zombie film."
"Wow, Warren's fantasy football team is unbeatable!"
"Yeah, football is his nerd cover. He's a mathematician so the numbers come naturally to him.

Hipster 1: "Winston just got a job at the Huffpo as a social-media coordinator."
Hipster 2: "Totally kewl, joining that plaid-collar workforce."
"Dude, I forgot my rooibos tea at the new lunch-time yoga studio--man, I'm totally a plaid-collar worker."

A hipstermobile is a form of ironic transportation, used primarily to transport two people -- usually a hipster and his or her iPhone -- between various locales or events that the hipster deems to be important. It is a type of bicycle, specifically of a single speed with fixed gears, also known as a "fixie". Often, the bicycle chassis is painted over with a single solid color using spray paint. This eliminates the brand name from the bicycle, which might otherwise clash with the hispter's "local is better" ethos, and also because the spray paint amplifies the hipster's urban-chic identity.more...
The hipster sits on a banana seat closer to the rear wheel of the hipstermobile while the iPhone sits on the handlebar in a specially-designed mount, available through Amazon.com. Whilst pedalling the hipstermobile, the hipster will issue voice commands to the iPhone. Typical commands include:
"Take a photo of this ironic building and post it to my Tumblr."
"Use Wikipedia to find a virtually unknown folk band from circa 1982 and then Tweet it to everyone who follows me."
"Is there a free BYOB arts & crafts festival in a two-mile radius of my current location?"
"Go into my draft folder and send that plea for more money to my parents."
Hipstermobiles are often spotted near cafes and post-gentrification diners, near arts & crafts festivals, and in parks during normal peoples' working hours.
An evil, ugly, man-hating demon who runs a boring crafts show and makes millions from selling overpriced shit at K-Mart.
You cannot escape from the evil of Martha Stewart.

While some believe he is a fictional character he actually is real, and currently resides in Cameroon, teaching the tricks of his trade to young, eager students.

Comanchero - formerly known as 'El Gringo'
The lights go down in the club as familiar legendary Western theme music fills the air. The crowd swells in anticipation as Comanchero steps onto the stage. What follows next is definable only in terms invented by the band themselves: country funk punk; sexy hick music; badland brain tablet gospel; jungle boogie on the farm. And so we are introduced to Comanchero's utterly unique sound, with influences as idiosyncratic as it's choice of name. From Merle Haggard and Frank Zappa, to Little Feat and Widespread Panic, elements of country, funk, hip-hop, rock, and roots can be heard in the Comanchero sound, which has been likened to a Southern-rock Cake or 311.
Hailing from Boston, Comanchero is a band on the move in support of Dead Gringo, which features fifteen diverse, yet cohesive tracks that put a stomp in the boots and the boots on the dance floor. Debuting at #21 on the jambands.com radio chart, the album successfully captures the live, rootsy sound developed by 4 east coast musicians in search of an original sound.
Veterans of the Boston music scene, from their years with jam band Free Lunch, brothers Bob and Greg Moon heard something fresh and visceral in the sounds and songs created by Sam Margolis a...
