vicejay: I've never understood Hipster Hate©
WTF Indeed: Racism isn't ironicly cool yet.
theorellior: orclover: Pickemup trucks and Fiats farking everywhereI wonder what the offspring of a Z71 Silverado and a Fiat 500 would look like?
GoSurfing: 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.
Leishu: vicejay: I've never understood Hipster Hate©It saves people from the pain of critical thinking by allowing them to target a malleably defined group to hate, which others also hate, but using their own definitions and with that description of hipster as "someone who does not like a thing I like" they feel empowered in their mutual dislike of those people.
exyankee: I like San Antonio like it is. Let Austin stay weird, and let SA stay lame. I'm not 20 anymore, so I don't care.
DirkValentine: 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.
germ78: I can't wait to read about this top-10 list on BuzzFeed tomorrow!
slidillon: I want to be stereotyped, I want to be classified.I don't want to live in any of those cities.
C_Canuk: 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 ...
GoSurfing: Son of a biatch had me dug in like an Alabama tick.
