But I know for a fact there are a couple of people who listen to stuff like The Used, Evanescence and Blink 182 and whatever and think that they are all so pained-and-lost-in-this-world-and-no-one-gets-them. But maybe that's a whole new stereotype?...
I agree with you twilight fairy.

Hipsters are indeed annoying.... since the school I go to is especially known for being mainly "ruled" *cough* by hippies and punks.... ...no wonder tons of hipsters come to this school just to get a taste of it all.... And they s* badly.....

Now that's unfair..how do you know those people are forcing themselves to like indie music/arts/philosophy/fashion just to be alternative and rebellious?

there have always and will always be 'alternative lifestyles and cultures'...
but they have taken many forms over the years..
bikers, beatniks, hippies, punks, even disco was once an alternative style...etc...
the hipster is the newest version of it...
and it is separate category...
there were no 'hipsters' in the 80's ...there were punks and goths and new wave kids...very different animals...
i believe the hipster thing started in nyc around 2000...
around the time williamsburg became a 'destination'...

Well I'm not saying that that's how they are, I'm just saying that generally that type of scene has the group of people labeled as "hipsters" by the media and public.

I see what you're saying,.. true.

Hipsterism can be annoying in the sense that some feel they are superior than others merely because their tastes in music/fashion differ..
And I hate how some get tattoos of guns, swear words, etc...
Come on now, you'll have that till you're 80..

it's very interesting how similar the 'scenes' are.

1) Hipster: I won't drink at starbucks, it's too corporate.

2)Non-Hipster: I want a Louis Vitton purse because they are cool


Hipster: You're such a conformist, haveing a Louis Vitton purse is so unoriginal. I like my purse I found in the gutter for $4 dollars.

Non-hipster: but it's fugly

Hipster: yah, but no one else has it. It's completely unique.

Non-hipster: that bum over there has something pretty similar though.

Hipster: You're ignorant because you can't see the real beauty in life.
I don't have time for this, I'm gonna go to my cave of an apartment and listen to some indie rock you've probably never heard of....

Non hipster: You need to see a therapist

Hipster: I am my own therapist.

Oh my god! I know that girl
