(LA Weekly)   "Hipster" is played out, and people should use more precise words like scenester, poseur, and hiptard to describe those people. "We can come up with a plethora of fruitful ways to diminish and degrade young people without resorting to the h-word"   (laweekly.com) divider line 177

Was at an electronics store last Sunday. Saw a guy wearing a black knit wool cap and long stripey knit scarf.  With a too-small t-shirt, shorts and sandals. You know, because it's it's 92 degrees out and you need to stay cool.  Of course he had a beard.

Call them whatever you like, but some people are shockingly stupid.

I have a very obscure and esoteric name for them. You've probably never heard of it.

Oh damn.

I thought "asshole" was a pretty useful generic term that seems to apply to all of the above.

Last I checked "Douchebags" still works, and everyone in the room knows exactly who I am referring to.

The word hipster is a generic pejorative that rednecks use to describe people that have better taste in beer and food than them.

Or better yet, being a hipster is like scotch. If it's not from Scotland, it's not scotch If they're not actually from Brooklyn, then they're just douchebags.

It has turned into "anyone from a city or under the age of 24" for some reason.

Yes, that LA Weekly writer is surely a redneck. Go fap a few new brain cells.

I'm partial to Beardos

But anyway, I live in east Austin which is a pilgrimage location for many of these folks.  'Hipster' went out of fashion when my 70-something year old neighbor began using it to refer to anyone under the age of 50.

Lately I've been seeing more normcore dressers at the coffee shop (think Jerry Seinfeld in the 90s... mom jeans, white tennis shoes, braided belt, baggy shirts).  But I kind of hate that word and hope it doesn't catch on.
 
2014-05-06 03:55:27 PM  
I have a name for people like that, and I'll call them by it, to their face... "Hey, waiter..."

You sound like a redneck...

... that doesn't know what 'fap' means.

On Fark, hipster means "stop liking what I don't like".

And I don't like it.

For me it's about appreciating the irony of people who supposedly eschew conformity that end up looking and behaving exactly the same as one another.

Give it a few years and there will be another group of funny looking 20-somethings to hate.

The great part of meaningless labels is that they can mean whatever you want.

I didn't know washing your hair with soap was a manly thing. Then again I never really saw the usefulness of shampoo unless you had dandruff.

Is "hipster" going the way of "metal," in that schmucks are inventing endless subgenres?

This! Entirely this! The terminology changes every few decades, but it's the same thing. Old people hate young people because things were better when they were young.
 
2014-05-06 04:09:41 PM  
I generally use the term hipster for people who pretend to like (or not like) things not based on their actual enjoyment but based on how they perceive other people will perceive them in light of said interest. For example, if I'm drinking cheap beer I genuinely like PBR because it's one of the few cheap beers that doesn't give me nightmarish diarrhea the next day. However, since hipsters have made it trendy because it's become a status symbol among their peer group since it's ironic for whatever reason, if I order a Pabst in a lot of bars around here it will cost me as much as a microbrew. That's right, $4 for Pabst in a can

there aren't endless metal subgenres, but I guess it's easier for people to pretend there are so they can make up something you've never heard of on the spot

That depends - are you pretending ~1980 Judas Priest is the same thing as ~1990 Morbid Angel or ~2010 Porcupine Tree?

/Because that would make you silly

Eh, most of "them" are just young and checking out different hobbies, trying to figure out what they enjoy doing.  Isnt that what young people do?  Some are morons about it but isnt that what young people are?  I am sure I am a hipster in the eyes of most.  I am not all that comfortable in judging how earnest someone is based on the clothes they are wearing or some goofy thing they are doing.

Most groups are easy to avoid.

doom, drone, death, technical, black, glam, gothic, progressive, stoner, thrash, industrial, grind, goregrind, deathgrind, post...that is all I got...true, not endless.

well I suppose I could go to the redneck bars in the outlying communities here but I do prefer places where I can order food without dying of food poisoning or chance getting in a fight with someone who thought I was staring at his one toothed meth head wife
 
2014-05-06 04:21:17 PM  
Or I could just ask for and then use their names if I have any reason to talk to or about them.
 
2014-05-06 04:22:52 PM  
Before hipsters, there were beatniks, but that before your time, so you wouldn't have heard of them.

The irony is that hipsters actually are attempting to be copycats of beatniks... all the retardation, none of the originality.
