    “Hipster” is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else’s authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself.

    It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker.

    Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural bogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you’ve probably sensed the pattern on your own).

    Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the authentic Us from the inauthentic, “ironic” Them.

    You can’t define what “that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle” actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That’s because you don’t use “hipster” to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you.

    The twist, of course, is that if it weren’t for your own insecurities, nothing that a “hipster” could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - “Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I’m certainly not like those filthy hipsters!” - so you project those feelings onto others.

    tl;dr: if you believe hipsters exist, you are a plebeian.´

    Instead of you saying "Stephen Fry's", you said "Stephen Fries". That's what I found comical.

    Nothing wakes you up better than a glass of bull piss. On that note, drink a Red Bull!


    Also, anyone played Arkham City? Is it worth the download (20GB)?

    Oh, I'm fine with that, LV. I just find it silly being called a hipster for following/being part of social networking and stating a blatant fact that the gaming community and geek/nerd culture are socially awkward and inept by default (again, not all of you, but a good chunk, etcetc).

    Oh well. I need to pee.

    For me, anything about science. Specifically space/planets etc or interesting periods of history (i.e not WW2)
    I specify not WW2 because if you go to the history section of a book store there are so many god damn WW2 books.
    I love history books or at least, I loved reading the history text books we used to get in school, though I don't know how that would compare to an actual history book. Though if I ever wanted any WW2 books, I'd just ask my best friend, he's a HUGE WW2 nerd (i.e. he's read Mein Kampf 4 or 5 times now).
