bruegel: Carth: If Hipsters are the people who buy from small independent business instead of box stores, support local farmers instead of buying their food at Sam's Club and buy used or made in America clothes instead of cheap imported articles from Asia while spending their free time doing a random hobby they enjoy and creating something instead of just consuming whatever content is on TV i think the country would be a lot better with more hipsters.

It's the holier-than-thou attitude that comes with that package that people don't like and the fact they are usually living off of mommy and daddy still.


Yep, add onto the fact that not all their ideas are so original, but they'll certainly play pretend that the mixed outfit made from Goth, Punk, Hippie, and Grunge subcultures' styles is an original creation of theirs and may go to the extent of trying to change the definition of that subculture's idea into something palatable to them. (for example: alot of Goth bands I listen to get slapped with the "Post Punk" label, even if they're beyond the time period (beyond 1st Generation Goth bands) that it could even be labeled as "Post Punk" [which is a stupid definition in my opinion]; this happens on both Wikipedia, music stores (when I am trying to find new CDs to buy), and just accidently wandering into a Hipster venue because of a song you hear from the outside that's from a Goth band (e.g. The Wake, Mission UK, and others) and you get blasted because to them "This isn't Goth, it's Post Punk!")

Skarekrough: meat0918: Hipster is a generic catch all for "Stop liking things I don't like"

Not so much.

Most of my loathing for hipsters has been their taking over of fairly normal and pedestrian things for the sake of being ironic.


I've yet to see this caricature outside of the media, and I live in a supposed mecca of hipsterdom (Oregon).

I see and know people that do some crazy, offbeat, and counter-culture things, but no where on the list of reasons about why they do something is the item "being ironic".

The goddamn fermentation cult in town comes to mind.  I swear, they worship Sandor Katz and Sally Fallon.  I dropped by a food preservation show in town because I wanted to see what others were doing with all the veggies and fruits you can grow or buy (and talk to the OSU Master Preservation people about taking their course).

I love homemade sauerkraut and pickles and beer, but wtf people, it's just food.

I don't know if I should laugh at this or just sigh at the fact that it's completely inaccurate Tats. Maybe you should stick to the Jewish threads, except starting tomorrow of course for Shavuot till it's over Thursday night. :)

A Hipster is a man or woman who goes out of their way to be "non-conforming" or "anti-mainstream" simply for the sake of being "non-conforming" or "anti-mainstream". They don't do it for self gratification and/or to better themselves, but instead obsess over the fact that they are "better" than others who have not decided on making similar striving to "not conform". Many of the things they do for fashion is inexplicable in many ways, as in they are supposed to not look alike supposedly being proudly not conforming, but instead they all look and act in a quite similar manner.  Many of the men (and some of the women) conform to skinny jeans, 50's style "nerd" glasses' thick rims (in many cases, when the person doesn't need glasses), plaid shirts/jackets, grandpa hats or knit winter caps (in the summer!), and different styles of boots to mismatched socks. It's almost like (though not really, as that custom of conforming has been going on for a while and is part of the culture, as opposed to Hipsters "non-conforming" by everyone conforming to the similar Hipster styles!) walking through an Orthodox neighborhood, where the men usually wear black suits with white shirts, tzizit hanging down, and kippahs (or black rimmed hats on top of the kipot) on their heads and the women wearing ankle length skirts, wrist length shirts, and a snood; due to that being what everyone else does as part of the group despite the fact that you can wear other things and remain tznius.

All the things you mention are part of the "mainstream" that Hipsters claim to be against, yet if they do listen to a mainstream song or some other form of mainstream media, they will feign their actual liking of it by claiming to another Hipster, "I am only enjoying it ironically" which means that Hipsters can't even own up to the fact that they can enjoy something outside their "non-conformist" bubble.

How so? What is your definition of Hipster? And why do you defend them when I thought you went all Baal Teshuva on us and ran off to Israel (I could be wrong on that one, got that info from other posters :-P ), which would mean that it's highly doubtful that you're a hipster.

You still didn't answer my question about what your definition of Hipster is (other than that very vague mentioning of pop-cultural references, which has nothing to do with modern Hipsterism) or why you're defending them.

Plus, my argument that Post-Punk is a time period than a style comes from two ideas, one is the fact that the bands who started the Goth rock scene who were formerly playing Punk style music (e.g. Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Damned, Joy Division, Bauhaus) never called themselves "Post Punk", that term came from a magazine who didn't know how to describe this new sound (that eventually became "Goth rock" around the time The Sisters of Mercy put out their first album in 85'). The British precursor term to Goth Rock was "Positive Punk" (don't know how they came up with that one, Goth rock usually isn't "positive" music!) and the American precursor term to Goth Rock was "Deathrock", the two groups eventually merged scenes and terms into "Goth" around the mid 80s and it's been that way ever since. Secondly, even Ian Curtis (lead singer of Joy Division, the band that everyone espouses as the primary "Post Punk" band) even mentioned to a reporter that pointed out the changes to Warsaw (prior band name before they settled on Joy Division) changing it's music style is going in a "Gothic direction". Basically anything that occurs after Punk rock could be considered "Post-Punk" due to that musical style that originated after the time period the Punk style of music started. (e.g. Grunge? Nope, "It's Post Punk". Gangster Rap? Nope, "It's Post Punk"  Dubstep? Nope, "It's Post Punk", ect)

Those are hippies. Not hipsters


I just got back from a few weeks in Park Slope. I'm not sure I can tell the difference between hippies and hipsters anymore. I guess artisanal pickles  weren't that big in the 60s. And as much as i wanted to hate the pickle makers they were all really nice guys who were passionate about what they did.

Pucca: Hipster is a younger person? Huh.. didn't know that. My friend is in his 40's and is (what I thought) the very definitely of hipster. Goes out of his way to talk about obscure movies and music. Plus he pretty much thinks he's better than everyone else because he would never set foot in a mainstream restaurant!  He even dresses his newborn son in "hipster" clothes so to speak. Honeslty, the little guy does look cute in them. Plus he doesn't need glasses but wears big geeky black ones that make me want to smack him, but hey .. we all have our quirks I guess.

I could be wrong and he may just be annoying and not a hipster. I just think of that when I see/talk to him.


He's so annoying that I'm annoyed just reading about him.  These people deserve to be taxed.

Yep. Actually, watching the hipster scourge unfold reminds me of when grunge went mainstream. Funny as hell watching a bunch of bourgeois brats shelling out big bucks at upscale clothing stores for that "authentic" Northwest, underground look...

...when that "look" had nothing to do with much of anything except the fact that the Northwest is cold, it's logging country, and it's poor. So, shiat like flannel shirts are going to be about 90% of what you find in your average thrift store, which is where poor artist/musician types are going to have to do their shopping....

Wow, cant believe some on here didnt give you an answer to the t-shirt.  It's Kurt Rambis and he was one of my favorites on a team I hated at the time (was a celtics fan).  but i wore glasses and had to wear a strap to keep them on and the teasing i got was royally awful. but he kept me going until i quit basketball a year later for swimming.  i was 10 and terribly uncoordinated anyway so it all worked out.  and i was already prepared for goggles with my glasses straps.

I also have a BMW motorcycle.  I've owned it since long before it never became mainstream.

I don't even know what a hipster is. I don't get that song about dressing like hipsters.

It's Taylor Swift mocking a certain subset of people who don't like her songs. It's not meant to be taken seriously or a critique of hipsterdom.

NostroZ: thomps: Tatsuma: NostroZ: Probably the same 42% that thinks they will have to use guns to defend against those big city folk.

Mate, I like you, but you really need to drop bringing the right/tea parties into everything.

i  think that the broader point is valid though - "hipster" is just this amorphous word that people use to describe a general idea of something they hate, like "liberals" and "conservatives"

Yeah.  I've vistied people in West Virginia and personally I'm cool with fiscal conservatives.

Hipster is a deragatory word that's used to describe people that are the 'other'... in my neighborhood hipsters are usually artists, theater, music, culinary, beer, fashion interested people.  No body in their right mind would call each other a hipster, we describe one another by our interests.

What I was trying to say is it's an insult and even the survey is VERY biased to use a term like SOULLESS.
"soullessly appropriate cultural tropes from the past for their own ironic amusement."

It's an old person insulting the youth, saying that when THEY appropriated the old culture, it was SOULFUL.
But now, it's done SOULLESSLY.,, it's an insult by someone who does not know who a hipster is really.


tl;dr

Are hipsters those asshats that feel that they they need to experience an art museum by viewing through their iphone as they step in front of everyone else looking at the paintings, so that they may snap photos of every goddamn painting in the place...then post the painting online as they walk to the next painting, stepping in front of the people viewing the paintings....and on and on.... I swear, I just want to start slapping phones out of these farker's hands and scream at them "LIFE IS OUT HERE, NOT IN THERE!". end of rant...

First time I heard that song I thought she said "dress up like hamsters". That would have been more interesting.
