(Slate)   Food critics really, really hate Thanksgiving. You know, that one time of the year when we eat food that tastes good and don't worry about how it's made, how many calories it has, or how hipster it is   (slate.com) divider line 13

I detect a strong whiff of loneliness and despair emanating from these "hipster" headlines. I can't help but think there's a wounded little boy behind all of them.

I think Drew needs to modify the Fark filters to automatically change the word "hipster" into something more reflective of the vast majority of people who choose to use that term on here, something that accurately captures their general ignorance, laziness, and slavering desire to get in a meme wherever they can, regardless of its accuracy. I'm not exactly sure of what that might be, but I'm sure there's something.

The fact that you constantly think other people are looking down at you smacks of projection.

azmoviez: Of course I know my family would freak out because the turkey didn't look like a Norman Rockwell painting.


The best turkey we ever made was when we were first married and having dinner between the two of us. We farked up and put the turkey in the bag upside down. It came out of the oven looking like total shiat and was a biatch to get out and onto a plate, but the breast was so juicy and moist it was worth it not to have a "presentation". No one else was there to see it anyway.

Prank Monkey: I am seriously considering laying off the booze this year in order to stuff more food in my face hole. This plan could be derailed by how my family behaves meeting the girlfriend's family for the first time.


You're doing it completely wrong. "Booze before food and the family is all good". At the dinner table you claim to have some obscure GI test the next day so you can't have solids. To celebrate and show much you value their company, you do shots of Wild Turkey. While they gorge themselves, you finish an entire fifth of Wild Turkey. The family looks with relief at the empty bottle, and starts drifting into topics more likely to set you off, like religion, politics, or the Giffords assassination attempt by the Israelis. Incest innuendos. You stagger into the garage and get another fifth of Wild Turkey. You steer the conversation to topics you have researched in the last week: the Gaza strip, the Begich Social Security bill, and how we might have to start taxing Roth IRAs upon withdrawal if things get any worse.

You'll probably black out sometime around 8pm if you time this right, but since you're on the couch and the TV is on you can blame the tryptophan which is the secret ingredient Jimmy Russell uses to distill Wild Turkey, which process is not banned in Kentucky. Wake up at 2am, go to fridge, stuff huge mouthfuls of turkey into your mouth. Vomit all over the front of the fridge. Bring dog over and leave paw prints in vomit around the kitchen so you don't get blamed.

Wake wife up at 3am. When she says you smell and she won't have sex unless you take a shower and brush your teeth, tell her the world doesn't revolve around her vag and you just want a ride to Walmart to do some Black Friday shopping.

tallguywithglasseson: Hell not to defend hipsters, but who's really more insecure? Some guy in a mustache wearing skinny jeans, or a guy who hasn't been out in months ripping some popular band he's never seen for being "hipster"?


I would say it would be the guy in the mustache wearing skinny jeans, because he would be ALSO ripping a popular band he's never seen before for being "hipster" (e.g. Arcade Fire) despite him most likely being a hipster himself.

Being hipster isn't just some innocent subculture, it's basically a person telling himself, "I am the utmost authority of what is 'the best' thing to do to be outside of the mainstream and I am different than anyone else. No one can understand what I have to go through in order to be different." While at the same time he congregates with people who look similar to him, have similar opinions and ideas, and basically eat, drink, and (if he does have a job) work in similar areas. Also, they seem to have a tenancy to copy other subcultures' styles (such as Punk, Goth, Mod, Rockabilly, Emo, ect) and virtually mix them all together (with the end product being horrid to see and experience), while trying to hold the claim that they invented their look and hold a distasteful opinion of people who are part of those subcultures as "conformist" (despite stealing those subcultures' ideals) and make members of those subcultures feel unwelcome and unwanted around them. Hipster isn't a subculture, it's a disease of the mind.

dustygrimp: Pro-hipster backlash? Surprised it didn't come sooner, what with the insecurity that oozes from them.


Nah, just against the dipshiats that call anything and everything they don't like "hipster" or "edgy".
I recognize there are lots of middle-aged socially inept cranks on here, but it's getting old and tired, just like them.

Honestly, enjoy the dinner. Hell, the country is in bad shape, but it could be worse. You could be living either in Israel or Palestine right now.

Just enjoy that one day. Even if you're alone.
