A reality show about Silver Lake?

The blogs are buzzing about the Craigslist casting call for real-live hipsters to appear in a reality show about Silver Lake:

A new Reality Show is casting Silver Lake's rich, wealthy, hipster GUYS and GIRLS 21-30 whose personal style is homeless chic... You must be incredibly involved in the Silver Lake social scene, enjoy a sensational nightlife Silver Lake style and be very outspoken with a vivacious personality. You must also hang with a racially diverse, intriguing group of friends who all live in Silver Lake.

Oh, and one more thing: "no pay."

If this is real (and some have raised doubts) it will revive some perennial debates over the definition of hipsterdom and the socio-economic characteristics of Silver Lake.

However, like the folks at the Jersey Shore Convention and Visitors Bureau, most Silver Lakers would probably prefer to be left alone.
