This just about sums up every conversation I have about music lately...


Can a guy not like sharing promising new bands with people without being called a hipster these days? I want nothing to do with that scene. Too much pretense and faked angst. I just happen to like finding cool new music.

I was a hipster before being a hipster was cool. Now it's so over.

If you tell people about how you aren't a hipster, chances are you're a hipster.

No. No one cares what you like. They only care about what they like.

Let me demonstrate:



Poll
1. Hey guys! Check out this great song!
  Yes No
I watched it.
I'll probably watch it later.
I'm never going to watch this.
2. Sooooo.....
  This Not This Didn't Watch
Wow! That was amazing! You've opened me up to a whole new world of music!
I liked that thing.
Not really my kind of music.
Suuuuucks!

I watched (listened to) a bit. Okay. I might even seek it out closer to X-day, but then, my tolerance for trite is pretty high.

I couldn't find the clicky-thing labeled "the tempo seems off, somehow, but the words are familiar" in either of your polls.

PS Outside Betty Carter, Nina Simone is the best jazz singer I know. Inside Betty Carter, it's too dark to see.

Why did the hipster burn his tongue?

I'm just hoping to avoid being a hip-replacement-ster, these days.

Every conversation with my mother, at some point, contains a story of one of her friends, whom I knew while growing up, coming from or going to the hospital with an artificial knee or hip, cataracts, hearing aides, surgeries and infections.
I now feel guilty just saying, "I'm great, mom. How are you?".

To steal a line from D. Khant, aging sucks.

I'm a nerd. Or a creature who will fade in and out of coolness before I even knew I was cool.

But you're old, so that makes you a hippy.

There's the good kind of hipster and the bad kind.

Good kind: intellectually engaged with the world to such a degree that due to a growing knowledge in a particular area of interest (board games, books, movies, music, bicycles, beer, scotch, woodworking etc etc etc), one becomes a mini expert, with very specifically defined likes and dislikes within that area. Also known as A GEEK. Yes, everyone on this website is the good kind of hipster with regards to board games. Muggles often have a hard time differentiating between the good kind of hipster and the bad kind, because their plebeian, mainstream tastes and mentality mean that they don't think about ANYTHING very hard, and like to put people into stupid categories and see the world in stereotypes.

Bad kind: the kind of hipster that does things ironically. A little irony is healthy, but excessive irony is soul poison. If you drink a bad beer because it's ironic, or listen to a bad band because it's ironic or wear stupid clothing or facial hair only because it intentionally looks stupid and ugly and therefore is some sort of metacommentary on physical appearance, than you are a giant ass-hat who only deserved repeated facial punching.

Sounds like you're the good kind, not the bad kind. SO keep on truckin' and ignore those muggles.

How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

It's a really obscure number, you've probably never heard of it.

Sometimes I get along with irony-hipsters because I genuinely do no-longer-popular things unironically.

I high five and enjoy sweater vests.

Unless I'm boiling sausage in it, PBR can suck it though.

Since when has high-fiving been unpopular?

I don't know if its hipsters or not, but I do get tired of people having a "thing". Oh, his thing is wearing/doing/saying X or Y. I think that comes with age though.

You are only a hipster if you have been doing your "thing" since, "before it was cool."
