"Hipjaculate"

A word coined by Jeremy, over our discussion of how to describe MINT Gallery's "Persona" exhibit. We'd considered a few other, more descriptive phrases, but the basic phenomenon we were trying to describe was an artist whose love for their particular subculture overwhelms their normal artistic sensibilities.

the green ones look like praying mantises, and some of them look like stick figures dancing. PS I like the word you and jeremy invented. I actually like the definition more than i like the word. I'd like to hear it used in a sentence fragment.

Hipjaculate?

thats hilarious. The English Language was in need of such word -I see this becoming part of my vocabulary (i.e. "damn, that artist just hipjaculated all over those skateboards...watch your step...")

I was this close to using it in all my False reviews.

Thank Jeremy! I think my initial phrase to match that definition was "hipster biscuit in the middle."
