If you are doing it for yourself because you enjoy it and what you always have enjoyed, then you aren't a Hipster. That girl is a biatch for setting you up like that (I'd be worse though... Captain Passive Aggressive Goth at your service! But I wouldn't put you down in front of your face if I had the wrong impression of you, just you might catch me sneering in your direction! :-P ) and if she can't get that the answer "I just enjoy it" means "I just enjoy it", then you're better off not pursuing a woman like that.

A person who does something and enjoys it for the sake of themselves, is a good person and not a Hipster. A person who goes out of their way to be "different" (yet looking the same as other Hipsters, strangely enough for a group of aggressively "unique" people); even if the thing they wear, listen to, eat, read, ect, is undesirable to themselves and that person that has the snooty attitude that "no one else could understand the beauty" of the "different" activity that they are intentionally engaged in to distance themselves from the "normal", then that person is a Hipster.

/I despise them myself because they steal alot of ideas from my subculture (and others), turn around and claim it as their own, then they critique the members of the subculture they stole from in their own venues!
//You try dancing to Peter Murphy's song All Night Long while a group of Hipsters that just walked in and ordered the cheapest beer on the menu walk into the middle of the dance floor, it's damn annoying!
///They don't even dance, they just stand around in the middle of the dance floor and talk to each other about the music, the club patrons, and the venue while other people (including me) are trying to dance!
////I'd kick them with the brunt of my steel toed boots but I want to be allowed back to that club in Newark

vicejay: I've never understood Hipster Hate©


I see a Venn diagram of quirky young people having fun and trendy young people faking it so hard they have to be condescending, to anyone who doesn't like what they like, to compensate.

To me, it's not the fashion, beer, obscure bands, vinyl, fixies etc that piss me off, it's the attitudes of the poseurs. The non poseurs are not conscious of what they look like they are just in the moment doing their thing. The poseurs want to be a part of it and get the attention and admiration they see others getting so, instead of just becoming a part of it, they try to wear the scene like a coat. They are jingoistic about their chosen identity.

The poseurs, what I think people really mean when they say hipsters, have always been around. I think the reason that hipsters get painted with the same brush more than other groups is that their seems to be a critical mass of them within the subculture because the subculture deals with the poseurs by moving on to a new scene rather than deal with them.

The real decent people build the scene from scratch, enjoy it, and then split when the poseurs show up and ruin it. Outsiders don't notice until the annoying jackass poseurs start showing up trying to one up each other and start razing the locals.

Then the locals start saying "man I hate hipsters"

hipster is just the new word for poseur.

from Wikipedia

"
Poseur is a pejorative term, often used in the punk, heavy metal, hip hop and goth subcultures to describe a person who copies the dress, speech, and/or mannerisms of a group or subculture, generally for attaining acceptability within the group or for popularity among various other groups, yet who is deemed to not share or understand the values or philosophy of the subculture. While this perceived inauthenticity is viewed with scorn and contempt by members of the subculture, the definition of the term and to whom it should be applied is subjective. While the term is most associated with the 1970s- and 1980s-era punk and hardcore subculture, English use of the term originates in the late 19th century "

GoSurfing: Cool story bro-

Some girl at a bar asked me if I was a hipster. I asked her "Why do you think I'm a hipster?". She said it was because I was wearing a plaid shirt, and I had a long sleeve plaid coat over that. I honestly didn't even know. I just throw clothes on. I had the long sleeve plaid overcoat for 10 years, it was cold, and I just like plaid, since I was kid. She took my answer to mean that I liked plaid "before it was cool". Kinda pissed me off actually. Then I said I wear whatever the fark I want, and don't give a fark what anyone thinks of me. She said this was the typical "hipster answer".

Son of a biatch had me dug in like an Alabama tick. biatch set me up. She was trolling me. This biatch put me into a complex to the point where I can't wear plaid now because people will think I'm trying to have a "look". I'm boring. There is no "look" here. Damn Faded Glory Wal-Mart shirt did me dirty.

But really, I hope I'm not a hipster. I'm just weird. Really weird. That weirdness has been around since I was a kid.

/stop wearing those clear non-prescription glasses that have no functionality other than me wanting to punch you in the face. thanks.


You should have planted one right in her smart-ass mouth.

/Kinda hoping that domestic violence becomes the next hipster thing. You know they'd do it right in a retro-ironic way, with sleeveless T-shirts, rolling pins, maybe a fedora, exclamations of "Pow, right in the kisser!" etc.

Exactly.  It's just like when the cheerleaders started wearing flannel in the 90's after Nirvana hit it big.  If you're being who you are, then that's great.  If you're just trying to show how non-conformist you are by conforming with everyone around you, then you aren't fooling anyone.  But in the end, it's not hate, it's just amusement at viewing my youth through a different perspective and realizing how little people really change across generations.

Roughly about 400,000. But we are right by a river. Lots of walking and bike trails. And restaurants are popping up all over the place (no complaint there). And trendy bars and clothing stores...selling local shirts that say "Don't Hate The 918" (our area code). For real.

Ooh the hipster took umbrage and lashed out with an ad hominem personal attack. Predictable, and yes Detroit does indeed suck that bad. Verbiage such as "organic" is specifically proffered to attempt to relate to your Hipster friends, like a wine snob discusses the "subtle undertones and sophisticated nuances and sterling finish with a melancholy aftertaste" load of crap. I got your "free range chicken" right here, you churlish dolt.

TheJoe03: DarkSoulNoHope: /I despise them myself because they steal alot of ideas from my subculture (and others), turn around and claim it as their own, then they critique the members of the subculture they stole from in their own venues!

That's always been my own reason for actually disliking them. They took over alternative rock and indie and have tried to co-opt certain electronic music and alternative hip-hop.


What gets worse is their weird fetish in making up a new musical genre name for a brand new band that never existed before, using mixtures of names of common, popular and/or underground music styles and/or eras, in order to claim they "invented" the genre or are "reviving" a genre that never existed before.

Example: "Hey, Spencer?" - "Yes, Linus?" - "Do you want to head to that new coffee shop 'Drip' with me and see this new band 'The Purple Dildos'? I hear they are a New Age Hip Hop Pre-Post Punk Jazz Revival band! It's their first ever show and they are really awesome to listen to!" - "That does sound awesome Linus! Let me find my Chuck Taylors and my glasses frames and we'll be off!"

/Of course when the band is playing they (more sounding like a horrific mess of painful and unintelligible sound and vocals) sound nothing like any of the separate genre names they used to make up this genre name they supposedly "Revived"
//but of course Linus and Spencer will sing 'The Purple Dildos' praises until the forth concert when that band (somehow!) gets a sizable following (approximately 42 people) and now the band is "too popular" and those Hipsters then move on to the next "new thing"

Yeah, I came to say Houston most definitely is full of hipsters.  I am talking about the whole nine yards.  Fixed gear bike shops, critical mass, bike polo tournaments, etc.  There are plenty of hipster bars and if you are too hip for that then there are also plenty of actual dive bars.
My experience in Dallas is limited, but I know that Denton is packed with hipsters.  Hipsters practically run that town.

Not to attack or defend "hipsters," considering that it is really an undefined and effectively meaningless word, I just want to say that the article is dumb.

Whats funny about the south is hipsters, rednecks, blacks and hispanics all have their OWN bars and places to hang out, except for that small minority that think they grew up in the ghetto while white etc etc. Honestly of all the bar's i've been to, hipsters are second on the friendliest list, besides the crappy music they play or listen too (if not death metal) - every time a fight breaks out its a slap fight.

I stick to the older crowd bars, less BS and decent music.

Holy shiat. I haven't heard that word since I was in middle school. Don't think it had a U in it back then though. Kids on the bus called me a poser for wearing Airwalks and Vans even though I wasn't a skateboarder. Well sorry, but they look cool, and it's hard to skateboard on gravel! I don't want to wear giant Nike basketball shoes, so fark right the hell off.
I still wear Vans, you can custom order shoes exactly how you want off their website. Though sometimes I'm still a bit self-conscious about wearing the shoes that I think look good. Thanks Jeremy, you farking asshole.

/Do kids still skate anymore?
//Also, Jeremy used to sell me Marlboro lights for 2 bucks a pack after he'd get done making fun of me, so he wasn't all bad...I guess...a smoke on the walk from the bus stop (and to, in the mornings) are literally the only thing that made life livable back then

I put it to you that it takes the same kind of person to make either one. Both will jam down your throat their opinions on topics about which they know absolutely nothing. Both are nostalgic for a time in which they did not live. Both are smug about things that had nothing to do with them (like football and politics). Both drink pisswater beer, and neither one has a good reason to do so. No one does.

True, but that tornado hook is in the wrong damned place. It should be centered over Moore. My current theory is that the number of tornadoes in that town is God's wrath for Toby Keith. Still, tornadoes are easier to dodge than hipsters--punching people in the face isn't legal.

PC LOAD LETTER: vicejay: I've never understood Hipster Hate©

Self-imported attention-whoring douchebags who think they are actually "literally" better than YOU, in some sort of half-wit wannabe intellectual ethos obsessed with pointing out how "different" and "countercultural" they are, ignoring the fact that they, themselves are a major culture, and as such, are about as countercultural as Jay-Z is. Trendies are annoying and douchey to begin with, add to that this idea that something that is of "the rare" is better than anything else, ignoring actual quality. For example, insisting that their no-one-has-heard-of band is better than the Beatles, not because the band is actually better, but because no one has heard of them and they "sound different". Fake punks (as in the music) who misuse the concept of "irony" and strain to sound educated, despite it taking a miracle for them to actually be one. It's not good enough to ride a bike, you have to ride a vintage fixie, not because you race in velodrome or used to be a bike messenger, but simply because it's in fashion, and no, you don't really know how to ride one, but the fact that you are, means that you look like a serious biker who is into the "hard stuff".

All of it is fake, and driven by trendiness. Each component would possibly be justifiable, but taken together, it's a big bag of fake attention whoring "I'm a unique and special butterly" Millennial superiority complex taken to an extreme. There are plenty of "scenes" out there, they all suck. Hipsterism is on top of the douche pile. fark them in the ear.

I am not a metal guy, but I do appreciate the Pantera lyric that says "be yourself, by yourself, stay away from me"

I read that other post about three times going "huh?" Before I saw this one. Methinks it's time for sleep before my reading comprehension and/or ability to read more than one post at a time fails utterly. :D

wondering what all the talk is about

Hipster refers to a subculture of young, recently settled urban middle class adults and older teenagers that appeared in the 1990s. The subculture is associated with independent music, a varied non-mainstream fashion sensibility, liberal or independent political views, alternative spirituality or atheism/agnosticism, and alternative lifestyles. Interests in media include independent film, magazines such as Clash, and websites like Pitchfork Media.

Hipster culture has been described as a "mutating, trans-Atlantic melting pot of styles, tastes and behavior. Christian Lorentzen of Time Out New York argues that "hipsterism fetishizes the authentic" elements of all of the "fringe movements of the postwar era-beat, hippie, punk, even grunge," and draws on the "cultural stores of every unmelted ethnicity," and "regurgitates it with a winking inauthenticity."

Some critics, such as Armond White, accuse hipsterism of adhering to cynicism, nihilism, and associated amorality.

Oh

I'm OK with this

vicejay: I've never understood Hipster Hate©


Me either. I'm pretty far from being a hipster (old rich white guy with a real job (actually two)), but kinda like them.
