Time Magazine talks about hipsters



Remember when Hippies were all the rage and old people who had nothing to do with the culture were writing about it via Time Magazine? Well I don’t, but I did see a documentary about it and this new Time article about hipsters is looking pretty familiar. Are hipsters the new rage? Is it hip to talk about hipsters?

Hipsters are the friends who sneer when you cop to liking Coldplay. They’re the people who wear T-shirts silk-screened with quotes from movies you’ve never heard of and the only ones in America who still think Pabst Blue Ribbon is a good beer. They sport cowboy hats and berets and think Kanye West stole their sunglasses. Everything about them is exactingly constructed to give off the vibe that they just don’t care.

Hmmm Coldplay can be pretty boring, PBR is nasty but it’s cheap…. wait cowboy hats? Is that really what the alternative kids are wearing these days?

Hipsterdom’s largest natural habitat, it seems, is under threat.

I guess polar bears aren’t the only victims of global warming.

The hipsters who will be the dead end of Western Civilization are the ones who add nothing new or original and simply recycle and reduce old trends into a meaningless meme. It’s for that reason that when Williamsburg’s hipster playland is in crisis, there aren’t many who are concerned.

But how can you be a hipster if you have concerns? I’m so confused.

    I’m a bit disappointed with Time on this one. I mean, yeah sure they are easy target’s, a no one’s going to step up to defend them, and who hasn’t had a chuckle at their expense from time to time(they do stupid things). But really, taking cheap shots at mentally disabled adults is neither funny nor appropriate, Time you are better than that, you shou be ashamed.

    Btw, I legitimately like PBR, in a non-ironic way, because I like the taste, and it’s cheap, but good quality for a domestic macro?brew.
