It's interesting how the popular hipster image can be easily transcribed to many here on Head-Fi.

Face it, there are a lot of hipsters on head-fi. I personally only dislike hipsters when they are being pretentious D-bags. That being said I do hip some times and some people do it sarcastically...hopefully not ironically.

Many define me as a hipster, but I don't choose to think of myself as such. I tend to detest popular things, but not just because I detest popular things on principle: it's because popular things are generally pretty bad. When there's a good and popular thing (say, U2 or Sperry shoes), I'm fine buying it and being a fan of it, but for the most part popular things tend to be bad.

U2 is a bad popular thing. ;)

I just gotta say that statement was borderline hipster. But I get what you mean about not liking popular things because they are bad. Pop culture is a beast driven by the youth; it just to happens this this generations youth is awful. I also hate how stupid Pop culture references*new ones* are getting shoe horned into movies and games.

Did you hear about the hipster that burnt his mouth? He ate his pizza before it was cool tongue.gif

Hipsters, they're the new emo.
Except they're more annoying, because they don't hide away in their bedrooms cutting themselves and writing poetry...

(please remember the following rules of the internet when responding to this if feel so inclined to)
Rules
#14- Do not argue with trolls, it means they win.
#18- Everything that can be labelled can be hated.

#20- Nothing is to be taken seriously.
#42- Nothing is sacred.

Yup, I think that's me covered from any passionate hipsters or emos who cannot take a joke...

A friend talked me into registering on Tumblr the other day.

My newsfeed basically looks like this:

A Hipster's day
Teen Quotes
ObeyMeBaby (OBEY is a brand or term, not sure which, associated with "swag")

The contents? Suicide glorification (I'M GOING TO KILL MYSELF!!!!! LOOK AT THIS PLASTIC GUN TO MY HEAD!!! OMG SO BRAVE), crappy quotes on life (think of things like you don't need grades when you have swag), Pictures of random shoes, car, starbucks and Beats.





 You know there's something with this generation when people care more about "swag" and attention from others than education.

But hey, school is over tomorrow.

On Tumblr you just have to follow the right people. Up until about a year and a half ago it was almost entirely worthy blogs (I ran a political site, an automotive art site, and a headphone site at different times on there), but now much of the population is a bunch of people reblogging cliches, crappy "candid art" photos, and fake gangsta "swag". It's still decent if you follow the people who've been around awhile, though, especially if you're into progressive political discourse.

Time Warner Cable and the NFL finally buried the hatchet came to an agreement, so we now get the NFL Network. It's only taken nine years. I can now watch the Thursday night games without having to go to a bar.

Isn't that the defining characteristic of a hipster?

post #463 of 673

they also have to have a body fat percentage of less than 5%, and they must deny being hipsters

It didn't make my day awesome, but right now I'm listening to Wish You Were Here (remaster) SX-780 >> HE-400. The music is lifesaving. there's no other words for it.
