So "Hipster" as a "look" now?
 
2012-09-07 02:55:47 PM  
Hey, that's that guy with the thing. He plays those songs. You know. He's in that group with the chick in it. You've seen him around. Shoot. How come you can't bring him in?
 
2012-09-07 03:02:08 PM  
CDs?

Bah.

It's vinyl or nothing.
 
2012-09-07 03:05:03 PM  
Not yet, but I'm gonna keep an eye out for fixies
 
2012-09-07 03:52:46 PM  
He's got the perfect disguise for Portland...
 
2012-09-07 03:52:50 PM  
I think he is a "portlandia" character.
 
2012-09-07 03:54:09 PM  
Also subby? CDs? Really?

Q: How much money did the hipster bank robber steal?
A: Its a really big number, you..you've probably never heard of it.

Is this the squeal to Point Break? Keanu Reeves is an FBI agent in Portland who goes under cover to catch hipster bank robbers.
 
2012-09-07 03:57:51 PM  
I'm not sure if mentioning CDs is pure stupidity or expert troll.

They won't find the money either, because it's underground.

edmo: So "Hipster" as a "look" now?


I thought the look and the disdain for anything other people like were what Fark considered the defining characteristics of a hipster.
 
2012-09-07 04:01:08 PM  
Doesn't "booster" pretty much describe 98% of Portlanders?
 
2012-09-07 04:01:43 PM  
Hipster, not booster

Back in the day, I used to make men squeal (but never Keanu).
 
2012-09-07 04:05:00 PM  
I wonder if the police put out an APBR for him

Are you kidding? It's practically a uniform.

Steve Albini has fallen on hard times.

Dumb of him to let the widow's peak show at the edge of the hat.

I knew him before he was wanted.

Looks like half the douchebags I see in that part of town. The other half are ostensibly female...
 
2012-09-07 04:17:52 PM  
All male residents of NE Portland are now considered a suspect.

They'll never catch me

speaking of hipsters:

Grimes - GenesisAnimal Collective - Today's Supernatural

y'all gonna hate 'em
 
2012-09-07 04:21:31 PM  
What would be the ideal hipster weapon, anyway? A trebuchet?
 
2012-09-07 04:25:58 PM  
Hipsters take pride in being open minded, but they tend to be downright mean most of the time to those outside of the hipster culture (and those within it for that matter)
 
2012-09-07 04:31:37 PM  
Phht. I was robbing banks before it was cool.

That MIGHT be ironic enough and would even be a weapon most people have never heard of..But i'm not sure
you can get them and Urban Outfitters..

I was doing it before there was such a thing as a bank.

Vinyl? That's way too mainstream. I only release my albums on piano roll.
 
2012-09-07 04:41:21 PM  
I actually think I went to High School with that guy. In Eugene OR no less. Hmmm.......

Luxury! We used to have to get out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of hot gravel, build a bank, and take turns robbing each other, come home, and Dad would thrash us to sleep with a broken bottle. If we were lucky!

You put a bank in Northeast Portland. What do you expect?

Not sure about the "squeal," but the Point Break reboot was called The Fast and the Furious.

I'm not surprised you haven't, he's pretty obscure...

I dunno, that's going to cause a lot of false positives. Nutella will catch just about anything.

that pile of dumb you just barfed out...it was pretty dumb & you should feel bad.
 
2012-09-07 05:40:54 PM  
Maybe he's not a hipster and this is a brilliant disguise. Could be he just killed a hipster for its pelt and eore it during the robbery.
 
2012-09-07 05:41:03 PM  
So shop the trendy glasses off him, and you get a twentyish Filipino guy with Eddie Munster hair. Should narrow it down a bit. Likely works at Starbucks.

I probably haven't heard of him.
