go to spotify and look up playlists called 'hipster indie' or 'hipster indie pop' and you'll get my drift
basically this shitty song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrlfFTS9kGU remade 100 times but muh obscurity attached
hipsterism is so cancerous
at least with previous gimmicks like goths and emos you could point them out without running into oxymorons
make no mistake, thats what it is. the next mainstream gimmick, like emos and goths, but with an even higher level of pretention.
edgy response pretending to be OP
if you identify as a hipster youre a gimmicky cancer
it wouldnt be as bad if you didnt legitimately believe you were in any way unique
you listen to fleet foxes, have an iphone, left wing views, and like wes anderson? guess what? so does everybody else
>you listen to fleet foxes, have an iphone, left wing views, and like wes anderson? guess what? so does everybody else
I've been called a hipster before and I don't do any of these besides be somewhat left wing. I don't even know who Wes Anderson is.
>because they only PRETEND to like music so that people will think they're COOL
That sounds exactly like /mu/
>Why do hipsters like all the popular music
Nigger what are you fucking saying? You do realize being hipster literally means you go out of your way to find obscure and unnoticed shite and then shove it in other peoples faces right? In essence /mu/ is collectively one giant hipster forum. You're deluding yourself. You probably dont wear flannel because you "dont associate with any trend"
hipsters do not exist anymore you retard
the difference between counter-culture and mainstream is so small now and days it's pointless.
everybody is pretty much the same now. thx to the internet and social media
OP stop being mad because u met somebody acting like they're "unique" thats just plain narcissism.
the people you are talking about are the rich kids who live in ny who have plenty of money from their parents and are bored. they wouldn't consider anybody on 4chan one of them
you are conflating visual cues with derived self worth
the important thing is that "hipsters" find more meaning in the trappings of culture than the culture itself. the specific persona they are trying to embody does not actually matter.
Hipsters are a scapegoat nowadays.
moonrise kingdom is by far his worst movie. budapest hotel wasn't much better. he is pulling a tim burton and slipping from 'stylized-versions-of-reality' straight into whimsical nonsense. his movies are losing their teeth.
This thread reeks of pic-related
If you seriously identify as a "hipster" just kill yourself
I guarantee you someone that doesn't identify as one is more unique than you are.
> but denying hipster means hipster
fuck off. this oxymoron is so godamn tedious. maybe they are legitimatey not stuck up trendy assholes claiming to be anti-trend.
Which board is the most hipster?
Is /fa/ more or less hipster than /mu/?
where's your proof?
At least slightly feminine, internet culture loving, leftist, scrawny men who reject the idea of masculinity and patriotism in favor of a fem-cosmopolitan philosophy and love to search the internet for obscure forms of art, wear flannel and have thick rimmed glasses are still a common type of person. They may be missing one or two of those traits, but they fit most of that description.
/fa/ and /mu/ don't have many "hipsters" at all actually, that would probably make for far more varied and interesting reading materials. for the most part it's actually depressed disaffected losers doing their best hipster impersonation
>you go out of your way to find obscure and unnoticed shite and then shove it in other peoples faces right
I wish /mu/ was more like this. They can shove it in my face in a kind way of course but the share threads are kinda like this tho.
Kind of the point
Hipsters do exist, under the image of what once was "hip" 10 years ago, but they are fully mainstream. That is the point. Why do they still act like pretentious fucks for listening to bon iver? 130 million plays on a single fucking song? you reaaaally think that's unique and worth being pretentious over?
Lol you pretentious fuck, my dad is a very nice and open minded man who has only yelled at me maybe twice in my life for being a little shit.
There are a lot of people who see someone like I just described to you and they can identify them as distinct, as well as dislike them.
they are narcissistic assholes. it has nothing to do with the umbrella term they label themselves. or in this case what you wanna call them.
people with money are sometimes mean and pretentious. ignore them
also nerds/geeks do the same shit over comic books cmon man
okay so you have none :)
>not beating you dad up in the first place so he can learn his place
The dress part was really the least important part. I wear flannel sometimes too.
>give me empirical evidence that a sub-culture of people exists
No he would've been supportive, but If you're a male yeah being feminine is worth being mocked.
There will always be feminine men in this world.
The ancient Greeks were right by slamming that boipussy
Literally everyone is a hipster nowadays
>Listens to Arcade fire
Gets called a hipster
>Only listens to the first Arcade Fire album
Gets called a hipster
>Doesnt listen to Arcade Fire
Gets called a hipster
I remember when /mu/ used to like Arcade Fire.
I've been here too long.
Ain't nothing wrong with that if the Greeks did it.
I just think they look funny but I don't dislike any of them just by looking at this picture
all I see is a lot of meme potential
where is the poker faced sincerity? Do you have to be a contrarian nowadays to pull that off?
why do normies and plebs handle everything in absolutes? Why doesn't anyone ever try to push the limit and see how far we can go, splitting hairs?
as far as I'm concerned there are several tiers of people
the pleb (reddit)
the poseur (reddit)
the contrarian (reddit)
and the meta-contrarian (aka patrician)
you don't be a patrician by being a contrarian, it's just a natural side effect. It's also more or less a fact that you're either born a patrician or you aren't. Some people will never be patrician, and for others it's a matter of time before they get there (depending on the type of lifestyle they lead)
anyway hipsters are basically a subset of normies so if you get intimidated by them you should just order a helium tank immediately
Hipsters are basically contrarians who are proud of it and being proud of being a contrarian is fucking stupid. You just come across as a smug asshole who everyone hates because he always brags about how awesome he is for his taste in music.
this is what the untrained actually believe
learn to remove the word 'contrarian' from your vocabulary and be constantly on the move, open your eyes and never fully assume anything
unrefined redditors who call other people contrarians are not only incapable of keeping a leash on their weak meme-ego, but also barely have one worth defending. They're so used to their echo chambers and video games that they can't let go of their memetic brain patterns. Having a contrarian stance is merely if ever a side effect from actual devotion. There's nothing to brag about, as the only thing to it is nontransferable personal gain. Why don't you shed some blood and stop letting hugboxes and other shitters limit your understanding
I'm a Hipster and I main all of the mentioned genres, but I also main Disco, Garage, Dixieland Jazz, Bebop, Cool Jazz, Emo, Glam Rock, and whatever Andrew WK and Diarrhea Planet plays.
if you proclaim yourself a hipster, then you're not a hipster. I hate how "hipster" has turned into this man-bun shit that's so common, it's the exact opposite of what hipster meant. Hipsters are supposed to deny being hipster, because then it's automatically un-cool if you say you're hipster.
jeez I sound old.
Anyway OP, I think hipster refers more to style rather than music, but maybe the hipsters and proto hipsters think that extends to music as well.
I don't know what a hipster is anymore, I just get called one like a lot of you and I fit the bill in OP. If I am that archetypal then I was pointing that hipsters like "pure" Rock, Jazz, and Disco based dance a lot too.
