I'm so anti hipster I was an anti hipster after it was cool.


Pretend not to care about anything, but be bothered by everything.

I have absolutely no clue what you are talking about. You just sound like these people who just don't know where to look. If the stuff that plays on the radio sucks, it surely doesn't mean that everything released nowadays is bad. It's quite the contrary, actually.

I don't think that's accurate at all. I have friends who dress like each one of those and they don't act very hipster...

Ironically, all hipsters hate hipsters.

Therefore, if you complain about it, YOU BECOME IT.

That being said, as a huge fat guy with stupid hair, I love ironically pedaling my stolen girl bike 10-speed through Cooper Young and Midtown (hipster central in Memphis) and spooking the bajayzus out of those fuckers. Skinny girl pants wearing bastards never see my fat jack booted ass coming.

The only way to stop the hipster is to embrace the hipster. Dilute the movement with drab plebes, and it will end. Such is the Way of the Fad.

On the one hand, I agree in that I really don't like the anti-intellectual bent that "anti-hipsterism" often takes on. Automatically writing off activities and cultural works that are weird or esoteric or just fall outside the mainstream as "pretentious" and dismissing anyone who likes those things as a "hipster" just belies a total lack of curiosity and open-mindedness.

On the other hand, the detached, ironic attitude of actual hipsters can be pretty horrible, too, in that it fosters an environment where it's no longer cool to sincerely enjoy anything.

Really, I'd prefer it if people didn't put stupid pop-cultural labels on themselves and just liked the shit they liked.

I can agree to a certain point, because certain works or activities were only meant and fully understood by a select group of people to begin with. It's mostly due to the old "one man's xxx is another man's xxx" line of thinking that people have, and considering that some people are so set in their ways, it's impossible to change their minds on anything, even if it is for the better.

The problem is that when hipsters attract themselves to anything, the reputation becomes tarnished in one way or another, either because something they like is becoming "mainstream" and they can't seem to handle the thought of being "sheep", or it simply creates a culture of exclusivity in which the average Joe can't get into for whatever reason.

On the other hand, the detached, ironic attitude of actual hipsters can be pretty horrible, too, in that it fosters an environment where it's no longer cool to sincerely enjoy anything.

As I said, the culture of exclusivity that most hipsters seem to have a negative reaction with the average person and that is why they stay away from certain things, and have such a deep seated resentment towards them. Exclusivity can be a pretty messy thing to deal with, especially from the hypocritical hipsters who feel like they are shunned by society for standing out, and yet shun others who want to be a part of them.

Really, I'd prefer it if people didn't put stupid pop-cultural labels on themselves and just liked the shit they liked.

I don't mind hipsters per se, {Starbucks cup, tight pants, MLP gear, etc.} it's just the attitude that most have is nothing more than either arrogance or pretending to be more intellectual than they really are because they hate something like Call of Duty or The Who, {or whatever else for that matter} just because it's popular, and happen to like indie bands, games etc. even if they are shit.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

It's probably because I listen to Hip-Hop and I've noticed the decline in what we dare call Hip-Hop.

I can't really talk about hip-hop and rap, since I do not know a lot about this scene. But aren't there a couple good hip-hop artists around these days ? Like... Death Grips, Jedi Mind Trick, Dälek (Dalek, if NG fucks up the letters), Danny Brown, Captain Murphy.

Obviously, if by today's hip-hop you mean Lil' Wayne, Flo-Rida and Nicki Minaj... than obviously, hip-hop sucks nowadays...

I'm not very familiar with rap, but there's lots and lots of good instrumental hip hop and trip hop and the like. As far as modern rap, there's Mos Def, Childish Gambino, Talib Kweli, Danger Mouse, and MF Doom.

But the most popular "hip hop" these days topping the charts seems to mostly be pop music with some hip hop influence. It's pitiful.

Trip-Hop and IDM is pretty cool :)

Ulver has some great trip-hop(ish) stuff. And I know edIT is a great IDM/Glitch-hop artist!

how about instead of trying to be something, we just be whoever the fuck we are?
i live by "if you have to try to be x, then it's not worth being"
hipsters try too hard to be different when they could just be different by being themselves.

Dainty build, artisan clothing, and I know your love of Mac products. But the crowning jewel here is that you heavily imply that Funk is the leather worker in question by suggesting he would not know. You are being IRONIC.

No, you listened to the Alanis Morrisete song "Ironic" before it became a hit, because of what a fan of hers you are.
