When did this fad start? Or have we always had them in society?
Scum of the earth IMO.
There are worse people, but you've probably never heard of them.
Depends on the type of hipster.
There are the hipsters that look/smell like they dress from a garbage can.
The hipsters that act like they have no money but only shop at J Crew and Banana Republic
The hipsters that buy all their clothes at GAP/Old Navy
Steam punk hipsters.

Sounds like we have an expert on out hands.
My old roommate from last year definitely qualified as the no money, j crew hipster. also qualified as a metrosexual tool bag.
Sine Missione -- Never be a spectator for unfairness or stupidity, argue for arguments sake; the grave will give plenty of time for silence.
Maybe I don't get it, but I always thought hipsters should never be confused with hippies. I thought hipsters were smart people who questioned the status quo. Sometimes they were right and sometimes they were full of themselves. But hey, doesn't that apply to rednecks too? Sometimes I like Jeff Foxworthy and sometimes he is full of it.....
But the term is a old one with a new meaning for every generation. I think some of you guys qualify as hipsters.
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
I think the modern day hipsters originally challenged conceptions of "normal" or, as you say, the status quo. Lately though it seems like being a hipster is becoming more and more the status quo. It's basically like Inception.
You mean that mind twisting movie?
Yeah. Such an awesome movie.
I loved that one too. Still scratching my head trying to figure out all of that. Leo is way cool. What was your take at the end? Were those his real kids or was that another mind twist?
Sorry I got off topic. I don't think normal and status quo are the same thing. To me status quo is more institutional, like government or school as apposed to normal which is what you and I are.
I think those were his real kids but it definitely was purposefully open-ended.
I can see what you mean as far as normal and status quo too.
If that is the case, there must be another Inception in the works. Right? You have media connections. Do you know?
Anyway didn't want to hijack the thread. Or maybe none of the young dudes gave a sh*t in the first place? You think any of them are hipsters?
You know, as long as this thread has already been highjacked, I will contribute. I thought Shutter Island was an awesome Leo movie. I really liked that one, and it was definitely a mind .
I still have no idea what happened in that movie. It's a good one though.
I'm just not sure if they left enough of the story untold for a sequel. I doubt I would like one if they did it.
Never, ever hijack my threads! Ever! You hear me!
I kid, I kid. I'm drunk.
