Adbusters | On Hipsters

I'm a big time fan of hipster culture. I actually wish i didn't have such shitty taste in music and was a little bit cooler - then I could be one too. And I really enjoy good hipster company, skinny jeans and flannel.

This article
from adbusters has some interesting cultural criticism about the movement

"Hipsters cannot afford to maintain any cultural loyalties or affiliations for fear they will lose relevance. But the hipster’s self-involved and isolated maintenance does nothing to feed cultural evolution"

Because hipsters are so afraid of selling out, they don't stay with anything long enough to actually enact change - and isn't that the objective of any social movement that criticizes mainstream culture? très intéressant, indeed.

    relevant to hipster culture...but I think they should have required a britney spears hat.
