Coupland, Douglas | Artist, Writer | We’ve given a lot of grief over the years to Douglas Coupland for his tendency to use tired clichés, but the prolific writer/artist really has made quite a mark on this fishing village turned world class city.

Note: Coupland is responsible for popularizing such terms such as “McJob” and “Generation X”.

Usage | “Wait, did you just say that Vancouver is opening a cafe for cats? Holy fuck. We’re officially trapped inside a Douglas Coupland novel…”
