Just because I’ve seen seen a few things lately, I feel as though I need to clarify it again:
Hipsters, by definition, cannot have ‘a look’ nor can they absorb and start following a trend:
Referring to ‘The Universe’ as a diety. Eg: “the universe was good to me today. All the lights were green!” “Thank the universe!”
Craft beer (whatever the hell that means (that’s a problem for another day (these parenthesis are becoming disruptive to my point (yup, that last one did it (more like overdid it))))
…The point is we associate these traits with hipsters, but really these folks just hop on the train and are some of the most unhipstery people out there. Don’t blame hipsters for this very, very odd culture generally specific to the Pacific Northwest.
The real hipsters remain hidden in plain daylight, disguised as a normal person with no defined style or statement, walking amongst us as they set the trends we, or, ‘those obnoxious people,’ do not yet recognize, but will inevitably be subjected to. Who are they? We may never know, and we may never find out… and we may never give a crap either.
So happy I stumbled across your blog! Love your posts
Haha thanks! That gives me a case of the warm fuzzies
Hipsters are an ironic attempt at expressing irony. There’s a lot of them where I live.
Very true :) I have gaggle of them where I’m from, but it seems like they are slowly dying off. However, unfortunately, some of their traits are being absorbed into the main stream, like an unhealthy and snobbish obsession with craft beer
And they all wear the same kind of glasses.
