"I wore an ombre top bun throughout my 20s, but then the pickler at my co-op was like, 'Didn't I see you in that 30 Seconds to Mars video?' At that point I was like, 'OK: what's next?' " said Jude Loving, who runs his own cassette-only music label and can be seen powdering his billowing horsehair wig with arsenic-laden powder in a three-second video posted to the micro experience-sharing app Twine. "Also, I'm balding."

The staggering amount of fail contained within this passage leaves me hoping that it can only be satire.

Feel free to bring back hip hugging bell bottomed skin tight blue jeans and leather halter tops with fringes for the ladies any damned day now.

A bunch of the hipsters around here are getting fatter and fatter by the week. It's really pathetic to see a skinny jeans muffin top. I like to call them ice cream cones.

Pocket Ninja: I need to see some actual photo evidence of New York hipsters wearing monocles in non-costume settings before I'll believe that they're making a return in any real sense.

udhq: sethen320: udhq: Damn these young people with their thrift, self-sufficiency, appreciation for the arts, trade skills and unconventional fashions!

Uh...no.

Know how I know you don't know any actual hipsters?


Maybe we just don't know the same ones.  The ones I know of spend a ton of money trying to look like they don't.  It happens in the way of clothing, rent, and home decorating.  It's possible that we're both generalizing based on our own experiences and assuming incorrectly.  Just a thought.

Or we could sit here and argue about "my hipsters are more/less cool than your hipsters", this being the internet and all.

Yes, everyone doing anything unusual is simply playing for your approval.....  That's not your out of control, delusional ego talking at all.....

busy chillin': manbart: busy chillin': nope, not that.

Just a new trend with hipsters of dressing like normal people. There was an article about it last week or so.

OMG! They could be sitting right nect to you, and you wouldn't even know it! This is horrible!

no. they will tell you.

I really don't care about hipsters or not, just commenting on the new fashion trend. Or whatever. Just be yourself. And if you want to wear a monocle then knock yourself out.


Possibly with a vintage 1890's artisinal hammer.

Jude Loving, who runs his own cassette-only music label...

WTF is wrong with these people?  I can handle the monocle and the powdered wig, but why on earth would you want to revive the cassette tape?  It was the worst way to store music and it sounds like crap.  Farking idiots.

Magnetic tape is, in some ways, worse than vinyl records.
Carefully stored a vinyl record will not degrade unless played with a contact stylus (there are laser readers that do not touch the record, FYI).
A tape will degrade just sitting there. It's unavoidable and unstoppable. It's physics. You cannot stop it.


I have always hated magnetic tape.  The range is ridiculous and the sound is soft.  I've heard other stories of people trying to keep tape alive and I could never wrap my head around why anyone would ever do that.  I can understand the case for vinyl.  The sound is bright and crisp if you can handle the minor pops which come up.  But tape?  Muddy shiat sound.

I have never heard of the laser readers.  I'm going to look into that now.  Thanks.

Cerebral Knievel: A jewler doesn't use a monocle, a jewler uses a Loop.


It's spelled "loupe," and is it a magnifying device worn on only one eye? Then it's just a fancy monocle.

propasaurus: When I was a kid, I started noticing that my eyesight was worse in one eye than the other. Being a kid, I thought that meant I'd have to wear a monocle, so I started practicing how to wear one. Which is why today I can raise one eyebrow.


So, that makes you perfect to be either Colonel Klink or Mr. Spock.
