Modern day hipsters are the counter-culture product of a belly full consuming materialistic society. We have no real social or political issues to revolt against; so they choose to revolt against the mainstream pop culture. *1* And with what again? Even more materialism and consumerism. *2*
Hipsters will enjoy a bunch of uninteresting "boring" things in an attempt to spite what they assume to be "sheeple". They turn neutral, once respected things into ridiculous holier than thou interests. Extreme examples turns into hilarity. *3* They will eventually suck the life out of anything that was once neutral.
A hipster is just as conforming as anybody, but then again, what part of youth isn't? Hipsters are no different than any other youth, Because take out the surface differences, the main reasons for such behavior is same as any; sex, vanity, social status, and substance abuse. Original "values" such as the pseudo "liberal independent thinking" have been destroyed by the vain parasites of the subculture. Stop fooling yourselves, there is nothing free thinking about (...) ; admit you like this band because it's indie (Not because it's original or "smart"), or wear this type of clothing just because nobody else does. Probably to look chic to others, ay? *4*
Like whatever pleases you; friendships are formed, not screened through like job applications.
1* Hipsters are a evolved version of resentment and social stigma. It's evolved however, so much; modern day hipsters are now a entirely new subculture of their own, Complete with specific trends and rules.
2* for example: Pop music, specific current fashions like mall clothing, etc are looked down upon as conformity. To "fight" such atrocities; hipsters desperately cling to their own trends, such as listening to extremely obscure music and buying only from specific labels.
3* *Hipster: "Yeah, I really enjoy (insert band)"
Someone: "You know... (insert band) promotes A LOT of (insert obvious human rights violations)...
Hipster: "Like you'd know! You just don't understand the complexity of them! You're just another close minded arrogant MTV loving conformist!"
**Most hipsters don't care to actually read real books; however since reading, philosophy, politics, what not is so "uncool" it's automatically a pseudo-interests, because the people who dislike such things are SUCH conforming robots of society!
4* The same things happen, random people hook up, people get their pictures taken by whatever paparazzi, we see if we recognize so and so who we heard some gossip about and look; there's some booze.
Such people are the true "cool cats" of the world. They're those "in the know", ahead of the norm. They're not of the mainstream. They be eternal beatniks! (And certainly not hippies). Yes, they're people who are-- or at least consider themselves to be-- "hip", as in "hip to the jive". Older hip hipsters will of course always look down on latter-day versions, those (younger) folks who think themselves to be hipsters simply because, for instance, they're able to exhibit a little facial peach-fuzz and have a taste for some generic pop music that they've deemed to be, umm, "non-corporate". Hah!
and finger-poppin' daddies:
Knock me your lobes.
This bit of hipsterism was written by "Lord Buckley" (Richard 'Lord' Buckley'), who was a singular, amazingly influencial (Caucasian!) comic genius that looked a little like Salvador Dali, affected a British accent, dressed in a tux and was best known as one who performed hipster interpretations/translations of well-known dramatic scenes and notable speeches.
The above quote comes from Lord Buckley's version of the very beginning of Mark Anthony's funeral oration in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar:
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones...
people who think they are original and unique for having "innovative" opinions, when really the only opinion they have is the opposite of whatever is considered "mainstream" at the time. these people think they are above everyone else for being so "different," and thinking they are the shit for not conforming to society when really their whole life revolves around being different JUST to be different so people think they are cool. Being a hipster basically means THINKING that you can fool people into thinking that you have it all figured out by using reverse-psychology, when really you want to be accepted just as much as anyone else...Hipsters just try harder.
hipsters: "what! you're not allowed to like (insert underground band name here)! you're too mainstream! you listen to the.....RADIO"
average person: "oh..um.... i just like their music...because it's good....im sorry?"
hipster: *puts on fake glasses and walks away*
Hipsters, like deep down, when you look past the clothes, the fashion sense, whatever, deep down they’re just critics. They’re critics of everything: critics of fashion, critics of art, and critics of movies. And it’s pretentious. And when it comes to music, they think that they are a big part of that culture and they feel like they are the voice for everybody else. And a lot of times they’re full of shit.
The blend of every failed fad since the early 1900s.
The hipsters in my town sport ironic mustachios and ride pink speed bikes to local coffee shops where they bust out their superior Macintosh laptops and give people disgusted looks who are not seen to be as ironic as themselves, concerning fashion.
are way too mainstream.
Hipsters used to be unique individuals, but have now created a whole culture out of it
ppl who think they're better than everyone because they reject "mainstream" music and listen to indie and pop. they love to use a lot of big words to make themselves feel better than everyone.they dont really care about how they look or staying in shape even if there nut hugger skinny jeans and tight v necks make them look gay and destroy there sperm.some of the men wear unisex clothing and sometimes even women clothing which is pretty gay to me.they like to also wear glasses and sunglasses. try to act like they appreciate art and photography.not all hipsters are jerks but some are pretty snobby and think highly of themselves and have know it all syndrome and love talking shit about other sub cultures like hip hop because they will never understand it or probly didnt fit in and are too soft to actually fight. they also like to buy a lot of expensive things which ppl can sometimes get confused with hypebeast but they are actually pretty different.the men usually have bangs that look pretty emo like green day.some hipsters will actually deny that they are hipsters
Guy 1- "check out the curves on that chick"
Guy 2- "WTF man? thats a fuckin dude!"
Guy 1- "shit nigga fuckin hipsters and their damn gay tight clothing!"
The modern "hipster": You have up graded from a "scene kid" to a "hipster". Thrown out your band T-shirts and other neon shit and downed to v-necks, florals, cardigans, geeked up sweaters, and flannel; Making you believe you're the hippest piece of crap out there yet is not aware you're two years too late in the fashion scene. You exchanged your Cash Cash album for a Tegan and Sara one because they're so YOOOONIIICCCKKKKKK and no longer find Hot Topic your favourite store after discovering Urban Outfitters. Art suddenly inspires you, though you have no idea who in the world is Andy Warhol. Photography moves you, though you're moved by any photo that is converted in black and white because you have no creativity. Great job switching the genre of your social scene, you tool.
Person 1: Hey, you changed your style a lot.
Person 2: Yeah, I was all about the scene kid thing but now I'm totally all about the vintage and arts, I'm pretty hipster now. I've growned up a lot and more original, I started wearing these nerd glasses waaaay before everybody. Basically I'm no longer a kid, I've become way more mature in style, music, and mind.
Person 1: ..
Person 2: I even stopped listening to Breathe Carolina and stuff, I'm all about Phoenix, The Black Kids, MGMT, and other of that amazing stuff. Yah know hipsters are just way above scene kids, scene kids are just dumb as heck.
Person 1: ...LOLOLOLOLOL, disconnect the internet and go read a book dude.
