truth be told, I did find myself laughing at all the guys with hoodies and skinny jeans standing in line for the My Bloody Valentine show... that i was also attending.

I'm not falling for your reverse psychology Canadian newspaper.

That site is hilarious though.

So self-absorbed and egotistical. It's like these hip musicians with their complicated shoes!

Is this like "If you don't believe in god, you still have a religion: the atheist religion"

TFA: Now yes, of course, this is a juvenile and conservative humour, and it is not cool to find sexual androgyny ridiculous; it usually indicates some kind of insecurity. I have been on the receiving end of it so much in my life I am surprised by my own hostility here.

fag.

eqtworld: Is this like "If you don't believe in god, you still have a religion: the atheist religion"

pretty much. the core of the argument is "if you know enough about hipsters to berate them for listening to Animal Collective, you're pretty much a hipster yourself". which is roughly equivalent to "if you've heard enough Nikleback songs to accurately insult the lyrical blunt force trauma they pass of as music, you're as retarded as Chad Kroeger's mongoloid ass". it just doesn't make alot of sense.

fark that. Hipsters are farking ridiculous. I am also farking ridiculous, but not in the same ways. Ergo, this article is farking ridiculous.

I find all forms of indecision to be pretty ridiculous.

What do you want for dinner?
Oh, I don't know, what do you want?
SMACK

Are those girls' jeans?
So what if they are?

I don't mock them, I avoid them.

I mock vegans too, and I'm pretty sure I'm not one of those either.
 
2009-04-30 12:07:45 PM  
I'm sorry, men wearing tight capri pants is just dumb. I'd have more respect for these guys if they were wearing skirts, honestly.
 
2009-04-30 12:14:30 PM  
What I got from this article: "I'm not a hipster. You're a hipster. You're a hipster times infinity times infinity plus one, doody-head!"

How drolly sardonic. Begone hipster.

We should manufacture a hipster Utilikilt trend.

I was dissapointed when, some years ago, I read about this so-called hipster revival and found out it wasn't a jazz-fueled trip back to a day when everyone acted like they were extras in A Bucket of Blood.
 
2009-04-30 01:03:01 PM  
Well you gotta admit there's room for ribbing in all the "look how mismatched my clothes are, clearly I don't care about fashion" people who carefully shop for just the RIGHT ugly-patterned 1970s arcrylic sweaters to wear. The good stuff is often not even in regular thrift shops, it's all been harvested for the high-price "vintage" places by now.

The stuff has to age a certain amount before it qualifies as ironically hip or whatever it is, and people are exacting about it.

what grinds my gears are the people who wear hoodies and manage to balance the hood exactly on the crown of their head, like it's one gust of wind from falling off.

but it never does

WTF is up with that?
Hood on or hood off, make up your mind.

If you mock hipsters, you're a hipster

So basically, you can't win?

Damn and blast.

I mock hipsters because I'm too old to be one

/get off my lawn

Even if I don't wear my porkpie hat and suspenders?

I'm an equal opportunity mocker. Mockery for all! I have not yet begun to mock! Mock, mock, mock.

eqtworld: Is this like "If you don't believe in god, you still have a religion: the atheist religion"

Sadly yes, and equally stupid. Honestly, what they're telling me is that Hipsters = Hipsters. OK. Got that. Now, people who aren't Hipsters also = Hipsters. Soooooo I'm fairly sure that the population of Hipsters + the population of non-Hipsters = The Population of the Planet Earth.

They're trying to tell us WE'RE ALL HIPSTERS. Fark them, I don't buy it.
 
2009-04-30 02:20:24 PM  
I read down through this drivel as far as I could stand, but I still don't know what a hipster is.

pretty much. the core of the argument is "if you know enough about hipsters to berate them for listening to Animal Collective, you're pretty much a hipster yourself". which is roughly equivalent to "if you've heard enough Nikleback songs to accurately insult the lyrical blunt force trauma they pass of as music, you're as retarded as Chad Kroeger's mongoloid ass". it just doesn't make alot of sense.


Or, if you know enough ab Bostonians to mock their Masshole driving habits, their outrageous accents, and the general sense of misplaced self-importance that rolls off the city in waves, you must be a Bostonian.

It's secretly secured to their yarmulke. I'm pretty sure I make fun of goths and I'm definitely not one.

Hipster?

I that like Hippy meets gangster?
 
2009-04-30 02:21:15 PM  
I cant wait till the term Hip dies... It sounds like something a 50+ year old will say to make them sound young. All it does is have the opposite effect.

I fully admit to being a hipster... which means that I'm not a hipster. AH HA!

Take that hipster!

BTW - has anyone been following the saga of the hipster grifter on Gawker? Yeah, I know that the meme is only a week old and pretty much dead, but I love how it enforces the hipster firing circle of hating on hipsters while looking, acting, and talking like a hipster all the while denying to be a hipster.

The ones that move into gentrifying seem-edgy-but-not-really neighborhoods on suburban parents dime and ride around on fixed gear bikes are my favorites.

I was at a party and I referred to my brother as a hipster (he listens to all teh "cool" bands, drinks PBR, etc etc). He was very insulted and told me that I was a hipster because he took my comment as mocking. And in his reasoning, if you are mocking hipsters, then you must be a hipster yourself.

I explained to him that, no I'm a self-absorbed yuppie, and that I wasn't mocking him, but because he automatically took it that way then according to his reasoning, HE is truly the hipster.

/my parents agreed

I'm too old to be a hipster, but my teenagers tell me the "in" thing to be these days is "Scene."
