bmihura: 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.


dad?

orclover: SpikeStrip: hipsters or rednecks. tough choice.

Come to Austin.  The two groups make up 99% of the population almost equally.  Pickemup trucks and Fiats farking everywhere, coffee shops and good barbeque everywhere you farking turn.


Sounds like my town. Asheville. I love it. Keeps everyone on their toes.

At least as many non-ironic trucker caps as ironic ones.

It's the only place in the south to live, in my opinion.

Oh, and the BBQ part is the nexus that keeps both groups happy.

You know what the best defense against a hipster is? Shrug. Meh.

Hipsterism is kind of an earnest trolling. The best defense is to just walk away, maybe chuckle while shaking your head in disbelief. Never engage them.

San Francisco Bay Area tech companies are dirty with them. There is a side benefit. I can go into work every day looking homeless and nobody bats an ironic eyelash.

NeoBad: I dunno.  Dallas always struck me as a pretty hip place.  Houston?  Now in Houston we have good steaks, good bar b que and women with big tits.  AND, we put a man on the farkin' moon.  How much hipper can you get?


AND, we put a man on the farkin' moon set..

Tosches: Begoggle: Oklahoma City, OK
Wrong.

Fort Worth, TX
Dallas, TX
Oh wow, REALLY wrong.

In OKC and Dallas there are plenty of hipsters, I assure you.

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.


Denton is a college town, so it stands to reason there would be hipsters.  The uptown area of Dallas is a mix of hipsters and yuppies.  The kid on my team at work is a quasi-hipster; he dresses the part, but he lives in the suburbs, drives and doesn't drink.  It's hilarious to point out to him I had the same fashion sense 20 years before he was born.

*checks list for Charlotte*..yup.  There is a cadre of pretty dedicated hipsters here.  I almost feel sorry for them.  This city isn't cool and never will be.

It's the new way to hate the kids in high school who you think are cooler than you.  People complain that hipsters think they're so cool, because they think hipsters are so cool.

Yep.  Our town even has a public skate park for them with rails, ramps, etc for them to work off of.

You are usually far less insane than this.

You think you're so cool is equivalent to I think you're so cool.  I think you know that.

I don't really agree with that. For example, these people think they're really damn cool:

cache.gawker.com

I think, "you think you're so cool" not because I secretly think they are, but because they're so convinced of their coolness that it veers into sad territory. It's more "what the hell, really?" than it is, "I secretly wish I could be accepted by their awesome subculture.

Hmm.  Well, I'll accept that.  I don't get what people hate about hipsters so much, but I can't think of any subculture I really hate so I'm probably not a good candidate for quantifying hipster hate.

Aigoo: Paris1127: Oklahoma City, OK: This is what the '90s really looked like. Oklahoma City remembers; why don't hipsters?

I don't think the 90s is something Oklahoma City really wants to dwell upon...

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.


The supercell's hook in that image is over Bridge Creek; it moved over Moore later.

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"


How unique and ironic this post is.

I disagree, it's an authentic slam against a subculture that strives for "authenticity".

detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: davidphogan: mafiageek1980: Yeah, that's one of the things I like about living here in Austin. Hell, even at non-veg places I've never had an issue if I ask for a non-meat item to be left off. People are pretty nice about that around here.

I wish I could remember the name, but there was a South American style steakhouse my company went to that made me one of the best vegetarian dinners I've ever had, had the chef come out to ask if I liked it.  Every place in town was super nice about coming up with something (and usually great), especially if I tried to just order an appetizer and plan on foraging for some fast food on my own later.  I only had to do that once in a week, and the Hampton Inn employee who took me on a burrito run at 1 am should be saluted.  You guys have some sick late night vegetarian-friendly burritos as well.

Outside San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle, Austin is probably the most vegetarian-friendly place I've been.  Maybe I could include Ensenada, but they may have just been smiling and pretending to understand what I mean.  My Spanish is pretty bad.

Not to keep harping on Raleigh but there is some amazing vegetarian and vegan food there. The Remedy in downtown had a vegan coconut cream pie that was so good I would punch my momma for a piece.


I will keep that in mind if I am in town :) Thanks :)

davidphogan: detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: This was a bar and there was no food to be found. Enjoy your Budweiser, it seems right up your alley.

Calm down.  Vancouver has happy hour, and apparently it's legal to "relax" there now.  At least Vancouver isn't Kelso.


I'm stuck in Wisconsin on a consulting gig until Friday.  This place makes me irritable. I'll be back in PDX on Friday, heading right to Fire on the Mountain and then bed.
