Earlier this year, some sad news developed for Polaroid-loving hipsters (after the requisite wrist waving and blowing, of course): Polaroid is ceasing production on all instant film, thereby obsoleting your blog. So Tumblrers and Typepadders alike will want to consume their remaining stock selectively and judiciously. If you’re looking for some pointers on how to know What Time is the Right Time for Polaroid Time?, take some tips from Grizzly Bear’s own Dan Rossen, who’s laid out a picture perfect spread. The basic ingredients include one I Am Too Blessed 2 Be Stressed t-shirt (black), and one singer-songwriter and/or Captain Jean Luc Picard. Do this and your photos will kick ass always.
Dan + Sufjan.
Dan + Charles Xavier.
Dan + Al.
Dan + Gillian.

Congratulations Grizzly Bear, you just made Josh Groban’s Must List. Your moms are probably proud! And if his core commenter demographic is any indication, your moms will also be asking you for an intro. More shots from Dan’s What Time Is The Right Time To Polaroid Guide at the Grizzly blog.
