Die, Hipster

Do Hipsters represent the death of modern culture?


Ia€m sipping a scummy pint of cloudy beer in the back of a trendy dive bar turned nightclub in the heart of the citya€™s heroin district. In front of me stand a gang of hippiesh grunge-punk types, who crowd around each other and collectively scoff at the smoking laws by sneaking puffs of a€oefuck-you,a€A reveling in their perceived rebellion as the haggard, staggering staff look on without the slightest concern.

The a€oeDJa€A is keystroking a selection of MP3s off his MacBook, making a mix that sounds like he took a hatchet to a collection of yesteryear billboard hits, from DMX to Dolly Parton, but mashed up with a jittery techno backbeat.

a€oeSoa€¦ this is a hipster party?a€A I ask the girl sitting next to me. Shea€™s wearing big dangling earrings, an American Apparel V-neck tee, non-prescription eyeglasses and an inappropriately warm wool coat.

a€oeYeah, just look around you, 99 percent of the people here are total hipsters!a€A

a€oeAre you a hipster?a€A

a€oeFuck no,a€A she says, laughing back the last of her glass before she hops off to the dance floor.

I think I may have done the hippest thing of all by actually posting this piece! Good thing we here at MNP dedicate the rest of our time to fighting the cause.

  1. Man, fuck a hipster.

    This whole “we’re beyond classification” thing is total bullshit, as they’re the most homogeneous group – which is hilariously ironic, as in their striving to pretend to be individuals they’ve lost themselves to retardedly tight jeans and and thick-framed glasses.

    That, and they’ve totally fucked up having eclectic/diverse interests/tastes/whatever for those of us that actually do.

  2. I just bought some thick framed glasses a few weeks ago to improve my vision and that shit worked. They do look real silly though. But I would say western culture has been shotty for a while- I wouldn’t go so far as to not saying that hipsters are anything but another fad.
