There's some really interesting links through that... another couple of articles defending hipsterism as just what the ''kids'' are into now and anyone who sooks about is fucking old.

Reverb  said about 6 years ago:

I read an article the other day (think the link was from a thread on here) which argued that hipsters despise their title, unlike b-boys, grungers, hippys etc.

fuck 'em for being so self-conscious

“(Gentrification is) natural change whereby as areas age and people die, others of a younger age move in and buy up the dwellings and improve them,”

half-full!


mule  said about 3 months ago:

that's not what gentrification means.

this person is missing a major step, poorer young people move into run down places and make them cool THEN they get gentrified by yuppies and baby boomers.

That article reads:

The suburb, 10 minutes from the CBD, is ripe for social and economic transformation, according to real estate and planning experts.

It should read.

The suburb, 10 minutes from the CBD, is ripe for social and economic transformation, according to real estate and planning experts looking to increase the value of with the hope attaching hipster cachet to their overvalued shitty properties they're trying to sell.

A very fitting comment number 1000, that. Even though I find it hard to believe he's for real. But then I get that feeling a lot these days.

Super Hipster Wanker

The drop crotch looks ridiculous. Beards I can handle, even a pocket square isn't that bad, but the drop crotch just seems to break some kind of fundamental rule of aesthetics.

I bet he gets tons of women.


wintertime  said about 1 month ago:

That sounded sarcastic. He really would.


outerspacextrapnel  said about 1 month ago:

Oh really?

Like, totally man?


outerspacextrapnel  said about 1 month ago:

I'm an arsehole. Without drop crotch pants, so that puts me one step higher on the coolsie jerk spectrum.


crackwhore  said about 1 month ago:

nah, you're just a plain and simple wanker, nothing more nothing less.


outerspacextrapnel  said about 1 month ago:

Like toadphoney's avatar on the site that must never be mentioned.


Kez  said about 1 month ago:

Where do they get all their money for giant coffees, Ray Bans, Apple products and artisan produce? They spent all their time sitting around outside cafes. What they save on petrol wouldn't cover it.

Many work in hospo, many are silver spooners
