Thought it might be appropriate for a few people on this site...
Oh, do they wear glasses, like non-mainstream bands and read Pitchfork at all? Anti-hipsterdom is increasingly like being 'non-PC', both are positioning themselves against something that largely doesn't exist and where it does nobody really cares or has it affect their routine except those who want to get worked up about it.
the fact the word has become completely meaningless (if it ever had a meaning to start with)
is that hipster bashers are always hipsters themselves, see it a lot in last.fm shoutboxes people dissing hipster music you click on their profiles and see equally hipster tastes
you probably are one
anyone who thinks otherwise wasn't at the Mercury Rev Primavera closing party.
Which is what all 'hipster bashing' is. Let's be real.
its indie to see through it all now.
dis is more of a "pudgy with too much hair" kind of place
i did of mice of men for gcse english does this make me a hipster please?
i hope so
EXPLAIN YOURSELF PLEASE
but for some reason an indie arrogant tit is classed as a hipster. Don't get it myself
That's an even more impressive strike rate than News of the World's 2/4. It may well be a record.
It wasn't really up for debate
can someone please tell me
am i a hipster? ir says in the description that most people have music as a distraction or a hobby......yet to me it is more than that, so does that make me a hipster?
dunno why you'd really get so worked up about them tbh
What exactly are your life priorities?
it's like the other day when i said "traffic lights" loads, and i really confused myself.
I'm still reeling now
That can't be a name, can it? Chris?
Chris? I'm sure I've spelt it wrong.
Most of them are carricatures. All of them do not fully represent the people they are supposed to and create misconceptions about them. Arrongant people are always annoying no matter what they wear or listen to. Actually, the only person I associate with that fits that clothes/music description is really lovely, definitely not a cunt.
Great job all round.
responses from music dickheads/ defensive hipster types on this board: properly hilarious.
It's the same jokes that have made a thousand times before.
i think you have a fair point. i think it's the responses here that have made me think it's retroactively funnier than it actually is. i mean, i quite like pitchfork anyway... i worry a lot about groups of people who declare an adherence to irony but are totally unable to see the ridiculousness of their own behaviour. i KNOW i'm a dick about music and i KNOW i fit into some of those stereotypes but i also KNOW that i'm faintly ridiculous - like all people are.
I walk mine every day and love him to bits. I've seen too many washed up on the banks of the Thames in brick laden totes bags.
Keep it up, guys.
It seems that the writers of this article are hipsters themselves, given that they seem to think that a bunch of hip middle-class white kids are "serious business."
