I hated everyone before it was mainstream
The lake was silent for some time. Finally it said:
"I weep for Narcissus, but I never noticed that Narcissus was beautiful. I weep because, each time he knelt beside my banks, I could see, in the depths of his eyes, my own beauty reflected."

Because they're annoying.


This.

Anyone who thinks they're cool because they're favorite band has only 5 fans, then rages when their fanbase grows to 10 and says they sold out is a moron.

Whats the exact definition of a hipster then? I see it as a definition of a way of clothing that indicates that they atleast have an idea of how to put on clothes in a original sense. Or sumtin linke that.

The person you described is just an asshole, but hey, that could be anyone. I dont get why hipsters are automatically related to dickism syndrome.

They just seem kind of snotty and they complain a lot. They also always want to have an argument on everything, acting like know-it-alls. LOL, now I'm not saying they all are like that because some of my hipster buddies are nice ppl but this is just the impression I get sometimes.

Because they are not regular people, but a CIA project where normal, everyday yuppies were experimented on to remove the part of the brain that generates empathy and modesty, thereby creating a new counterculture that works for a capitalist agenda by the means of spending $3 for a cup of coffee and help stimulate the scarf industry in areas with warmer climates.

Hmm, I guess. But still, dickismsyndrome and hipsters seem to be connected according to a lot of people. Its not like other subcultures dont suffer from the same syndrome

The fact that they complain and then do nothing other than do drugs and listen to music is just retarted.

I'm waiting for a bunch of authors to come out of this generation a la Ellis, McInerney, etc. i.e. romanticize and "satirize" this morally-devoid age we live in.

...so far, they have Tao Lin

This actually is the protocol for a couple of my friends who've really embraced the subculture. But I like all those things too, so I dunno...

I live in the south where everyday this week it's been 95+ degrees outside, own a scarf, and listen to some folk and indie. I don't like coffee, though.

Am I a hipster?

If they knew they were mainstream they would stop being hipsters.

Hipsters have existed since the late 1930s/1940s. As a term and concept of course, I don't think anyone back then was bragging about their vintage clothing or extensive vinyl collection.

I like to live me life believing Billy Corgan never actually existed as a human, but rather an infectious disease that only 2% of the world population was immune too.

because if it wasn't cool, they'd be doing it themselves in some crazy hipster paradox


I have to give some credit though, the coffee place I go to is so hipster but it's so awesome that I don't care.

Because let's face it, there's always one group in society which people all band together to hate.
A few years ago it was the scene kids, before that the emos.

It's nice in a way isn't it? The way that we can all agree that hipsters, or whatever social group is going to be blamed next, are pricks even when they're getting prejudiced for a the actions of a minority.

I honestly believe hipsters are now the majority, making non-hipsters hipsters. Which makes us all hipsters, but non-hipsters are the real hipsters, while hipsters are just too mainstream.
