A week before his death, Jimi Hendrix sat down for an interview Keith Altham in London, in which he discussed a fantasy of having an indoor swimming pool next to his bed and swimming to the breakfast table, among other things.
I think that headline says it all. Just like Jack Parow’s new video has it all. And he made very sure that his position on hipsters is known, insinuating that they are urinating in bottles to make craft beer. It’s off the charts – click through to watch it.
