RoyBatty: After Third Rock, I haven't seen any performances of Joseph Gordon-Leavitt's that really impressed me. That if I didn't know who he was would leave me asking who was that guy?

What's he done that should be seen?

(Please don't mention Inception, saw that. Or Treasure Planet.)


The Lookout was surprisingly good. I think thats the first time I stopped thinking of him as "that kid from 3rd Rock from the Sun". Also, 500 Days of Summer and 50/50.

Funbags: Methinks he doth protest too much.


RoyBatty: What's he done that should be seen?

Havoc, but not for JGL, for Anne Hathaway's copious rack.

Okay, they've all been netflixed. Thank you!

A year or so ago, I asked a similar question about Anne Hathaway, saying, I couldn't see her as Cat Woman, I like her, but all I've seen has been pretty fluffy, and someone else told me to see Havoc, for I think a scene of Hathaway on a couch.

Anyone who thinks hipsters don't exist never lived in a town with a university/college. So many horrible hairstyles and clothes on underweight young men.

LeroyBourne: brandnewchair: LeroyBourne: Now I'm not allergic to anything, and nothing about my bm's suggests that I have to stay away from certain cuisines, but pbr gives me the absolute worse gas. The fact that they drink that crap because it's cool is beyond me. Shiat, Grainbelt is a good beer, reasonably priced and tasted ok (and most of all the label is cool, but i'm a mn guy, so i'm biased). Nord East is actually pretty good.

are you trying to turn a JGL thread into a beer thread?

you're right, beer threads far out number jgl threads. and hipster threads outnumber the both combined. just trying to get to get some insight for the hipster love for pbr.


Heineken? fark that shiat! Pabst, Blue, Ribbon!

whooter: It looks like a yellow bike chain, but I don't get it.


A lot of people want to ride minimalist bikes (probably fixies, I'm too ignorant to tell just by looking but they definitely only have one speed) that are color-coordinated, so they'll paint the frame one color, the rims one color, and then match the chain to one of those or maybe a third color. Color tape on the handle bars (usually bull bars) too.

/park my bike next to several of these daily

I'd long thought "hipsters" was a synonym for pretentious douchebags-meaning it could apply to,well,anyone. It's been narrowed down to a specific profession now?

I got ahold of a movie without a cover or anything and I played it, thinking "Mysterious Skin, hmmm. Sounds like it'll be about about an Asian chick." So I should hate J G-L, but I think he'll win at least one Oscar before he's done.

I thought it was Jerry and George talking when i heard it, but I could be mistaken, I was tired and it was over 12 hours ago, but I have heard Elaine use it too.

/does anyone know when it really started being used as it is now (Apple products, certain facial hair...etc...)?

Let me guess, you think Larry the Cable Guy deserves an Oscar, am I right? Tard


No. I think Larry the Cable Guy should be sterilized to protect humanity. The only thing I remember this Gordon Levitt guy from is Inception... so maybe I'm thinking he's a horrible actor because he was in an abortion of a movie. It's possible he's great, but I've only seen him in the BBWWWWHHAAAAAMM movie.

I had a gravel yard before they were popular. Got the idea from a guy who sells yards over in brooklyn, but you've probably never heard of him.

my idea of a hipster is somebody who tries to be, dress, act different purely for the sake of being different, and then feeling superior for being different. All the while, they are conforming to the current fashion of hipsters in their time and locality. Which is very funny to me.

they may be different from the majority of society at large, but they are complete and utter conformists within their social and sometimes professional circles. And of course, the biggest determinant to me is that they think they are better than society at large because they think they are more unique.

without the annoying sense of superiority, it's just a weird guy. with the annoying sense of superiority, it's a hipster.

I opened your window, but accidentally moved into the next window, where I was looking up a band on wikipedia. I saw a picture of them, thinking it was still the hipster article, and thought, "God, that's awfully specific!"

The trailers to these look terrific, and yet Inception, or at least his character in it, was whatever, he had nothing to do, and the trailer for Premium Rush also looks like not much of anything different.

Yeah, hipsters can't afford minimalist locales such as those. Those people are just douchebags.

It's the goths, punks, ect that have grown up and need a new avenue to fell like the misbegotten minority and feel superior.

I am a hipster.

I like music that doesn't quite conform to the radio. It's true, some of you haven't heard before, but not all of us want to be snide about it. The truth is that mainstream music is generally crap (Country or Top 40), and their is much more interesting music to find out there. I find joy in other people enjoying music that I do. There are also people that would consider my music tastes poor that are considered hipsters.

I like microbrews and I will drink a PBR on occasion. I love good beer, but I am not a beer snob. I love Bell's and Stone breweries as well as many others but I'll drink some swill on occasions of camping or canoeing. I would rather drink a PBR than a Budweiser any day. Personal preference. Our camping trips generally involve a cooler full of crappy cheap beer. The fact that somebody thinks that drinking PBR is a status symbol is silly.

I wear Puma's. Is that hipster? I'm not sure. I don't dress in black, and I don't wear skinny jeans. Are corduroy pants considered hipster? I have been told that before. I just like a good pair of cord's, and always have.

People that use the phrase hipster a lot are like people who swear a lot. People that swear a lot (like a couple in every sentence) do it to fill in weaknesses in vocabulary and glaze over topics that they don't understand. People that overly use the word hipster do not have a fully cognitive thought in explaining why they don't like something about somebody else, so they copypasta hipster into the sentence so they can sit in smug satisfaction as they picture hipsters to do.

/That is the real irony.
