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.

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.

>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
>>
>>61613065
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.

It's a real shame that Wes Anderson gets shit on for being campy hipster indie schlock. I think he makes generally nice heartwarming films.

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.
>>
>>61613372
/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

>>61613208

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.

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?

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.
>>
>>61614487
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

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.
