I've met hipsters and I've been to Brooklyn. Apparently, the place has been taken over by them.

Hipsterism is like New England snow. It is fun for a very brief time, then it becomes troublesome, then it melts away.

Are they still into riding bikes that are extremely difficult to stop and can't coast at all?

GreenAdder: Are they still into riding crashing bikes that are extremely difficult to stop and can't coast at all?


FTFY. My hipsterish brother wrecked pretty good on a hipsterish bike. It was after he moved out of Williamsburg, though, somewhere up in Toronto. Called me up afterward, pretty clearly concussed. Kind of scary, to be honest. Luckily he didn't knock his noggin too badly, and his local friends took care of him and spoke with me and dad down here in the states.

Makes about as much sense as the $7+ biscuits in Portland that have multiple locations and line out the door..

How do I get ahead of the next hipster fad so I can sell them ridiculous junk at a 6000% markup?

Hmmmmm.............the more I hear the word "hipster" used in this manner, the more I'm thinking it's another word for "DoucheBag".

Don't leave me in suspense, subby. What is this bacon over, and where can I get some?

Please sir, tell me if this porridge is fair trade and hormone-free?

Why gluten free? are all hipsters allergic to gluten?
 
2013-12-14 04:03:03 PM
The fact that something opens in Brooklyn therefore means every white person in Brooklyn dines there.

/every hipster I know has laughed when walking past that place

Hipsters are allergic to things you haven't even heard about.

Gluten is like sodium. Even when you don't have a single medical reason to avoid it you should. Because reasons.

FTFA - There's also a menu of dairy-free, gluten-free "Belgian Waffletwists," a trademarked name for sandwiches built on Belgian waffles.

I read this as Belgian Waffletwats.

I have no point.

Hipsters think gulten-free things have magical properties, up to and including lessening the effects of autism.

/Buddy of mine works in a pizza place and HATES it when people order gluten-free pizza, because it means that every surface has to be specially cleaned for that one pizza, because they've come in contact with glutens

This whole bacon = manliness and cool is becoming the internet equivalent of buying a hummer with a pair of nuts on the tow hitch.

I mean, they don't even say whether the toast was handcrafted by organic free-range Peruvian highlander artisans.

Not exactly. "Douchebag" is just a broad category that includes hipsters, among other things.
 
2013-12-14 04:25:44 PM
Yes, bacon is over. And the new wonder is porridge.

Okay. 

Sure.

Whatever.

FrancoFile: How do I get ahead of the next hipster fad so I can sell them ridiculous junk at a 6000% markup?


My advice and advice I've been giving everyone: start a macaroon bakery.

ichef.bbci.co.uk

It perfectly encapsulates things hipsters like. Childishly colourful, European and individualised. So, people can choose how many of each colour they want, and you charge them through the nose for the privilege. I mean, people in London were charging £2 for a farking cupcake.

The big thing is the marketing. You've got to get your presentation right. You might be a dude operating out of an industrial unit in New Jersey, but you need to push the buttons that makes people think that you're a charmant mademoiselle baking them in her kitchen by hand. Maybe get some silly van to deliver them in to reinforce it.
 
2013-12-14 04:28:20 PM
Okay, the price is possibly a little high for a meatless meal, but chipotle is about the same price, and I think it sounds kinda cool.

I would eat there. the maple ham and apple sounds really really good.
 
2013-12-14 04:28:37 PM
Artist's anal porridge really does not sound that good.   And from Brooklyn, even less.
 
2013-12-14 04:29:27 PM
Porridge is the shiat you eat when you're too poor to afford anything else. I can see why it would appeal to the hipster ethos. Soon enough these people will be self-publishing books about excrement re-consumption as a dietary ideal. "learn from the canine" they will say.

Yeah but bacon has ran it's course.  Jim Gaffigan kind of set it off and now I'm tired of seeing bacon-wrapped, bacon-infused, bacon-flavored everything.  I mean it's really just annoying. Sure bacon is tasty but admit it, you weren't waving the bacon flag 10 years ago when bacon was just as tasty.

Of course now it's  ZOOMMMGGGG!!! there's bacon flavor in my food that's so edgy!

/Mmmm bacon flag

Lobsters and oysters used to be eaten by peasants.  The status of food changes throughout times, independent of "the hipster ethos"

It's because they're eating it ironically
 
2013-12-14 04:33:32 PM
"Artisanal" and "ancient" literally, mathematically cannot apply to any kind of porridge that's both edible and non-GM.  And "gluten free" means that it has to lack any and all grains that traditionally  go into porridge.  Technically it could be "global", but since the US produces like half the world's grain and we don't really import any that's unlikely.

So I guess it's hipster because the advertising is ironic in the actual sense of saying the opposite of what is actually meant?

I'm not waving a bacon flag now, or wrapping everything in bacon. I just like to eat it. Always have.

Next bubble burst will be retarded eateries that only specialize in hipster food. Eventually a gluten, egg and dairy free cupcake shop just won't have the delicious ring to it as it does for some ungodly reason now.

My porridge is artisan-crafted by the descendants of a 17th century religious refugee and individually packaged in serving-size portions.

Hipster oatmeal??

2013-12-14 04:43:56 PM
I like oatmeal a lot. Much to the dismay of my wife who finds it very bland eating, I'll eat quaker oats every frigging day.

However, to me its cheap food (but healthy). There is no way in hell I'd pay 7 bucks - or even 4, 5 bucks for a bowl.  That's like trying to sell me gourmet breakfast corn flakes.

More accurately it would melt away, but unfortunately the Hipsters instead create and then disown in such a rapid cycle which is used to continue their destructive push of authenticity and inflated sense of self worth.
