Kept hearing of hipster-hipsters those days around, while doing some reading on the Internet an article described them like

…a hipster will sit next to you, tell you about his last trip to Paris or Berlin, and how he has a better camera than you and you can’t understand why, watches indie movies and wears wierd combinations of clothes, nerd glasses and bright color.

What’s with all the labeling around?

lolz hipsters jokes aren’t really about labeling any sort of social group or style. Hipsters…are a joke. A sort of running internet meme. It’s just entertaining to make fun of the ridiculousness of some people.

but if you really want to get into labeling, they sort of label themselves and accept the label. like goths or punks tend to do. and like we women who proudly call ourselves fashionistas do.

I saw this cartoon today and it seemed to fit this post perfectly: http://dustinland.com/archives/archives464.html

As usual, labels are relative and about making the people using the labels feeling good about themselves, whether they are labeling themselves or others. Hispter is one of those weird ones where some people think it’s an insult and some people proudly self-identify.

It all seems to be about pseudo-intelligence (claiming to be ‘into’ Nabokov) and using the word ‘ironic’ incorrectly.

Our London hipsters all seem to have fled to Brooklyn. There was a time (circa 2008/9) where you couldn’t turn on a radio, TV, or flick through a magazine without seeing Peaches/Pixie Geldof, Alexa Chung, Nick Grimshaw, Daisy Lowe or Agyness Deyn.

I like to say that I"m into hipster culture and things that hipsters like, but i’m not a hipster. I love underground music and cameras and traveling and all that, but I’m not going to look down on people who don’t. If people haven’t heard of a band I like, I want to share it with them, not tell them that they’re not cool enough. you know?

HAH. I just read an ironic post for the girl above.

I don’t believe in them, and find the constant labeling of anything completely ridiculous and irrelevant to who they actually are as a person.
