On Hipsters. And why some of you need to go take a look at yourselves

By johnboy - 30 April 2013 37

The word hipster gets overused on this site as much as anywhere.

Often by angry people who think their own ignorance is a justification of their opinions.

In any event Cracked have done an excellent job explaining the term’s misuse which I thought worthy of sharing with you all.

(Mild language warning)

What’s Your opinion?

Apparently words can change meaning if used incorrectly and often. See “misogynist”.

When did Flannies and mustaches move from the Bogan column to the Hipster column?

Kambah looks a lot more ironic that it did this morning.

yep…ironic flannies, moustaches and thick rimmed glasses that serve no purpose other than to make the wearer look intelligent

hipsters are taking over canberra! all these damn cafes that are essentially an excuse for bad service, crap food and zero spend on decor are popping up everywhere

do hipsters realise how hysterically funny they look?

maybe i’m just “too mainstream” to get their sensitive souls

Since when did wearing a falnnie become Bogan?

Ever since every Kambah booner wore them with tight black jeans, desert boots and a pack of Winnie Reds tucked up in the sleeve! Ahh, the ’80s, why did you leave us?

I wear them to keep warm. I think Bogan is used far too often too.

You just don’t like being seen for what you are

Says the hipster….

Bogan.com.au says so.

“A pronounced lack of dress sense in social situations. Typical bogan attire consists of a flannelette shirt, King Gee stubbie shorts (either blue/khaki), torn or soiled jeans from the 1980’s or earlier, and of course double-plug standard issue white thong sandals with black rubber.”

Brilliant video. Couldn’t agree more.

I remember a little while back, I was reading some posts on here objecting to frangipani & my family stickers. Then a poster chimes in with, “well if those stickers annoy hipsters, than I might invest in some” etc…

I have a mate who refers to anyone who wears chino’s or has an SS haircut as a hipster. The term hipster seems to have completely lost all meaning.

What are your thoughts, barcham?

Amazed and confused by this.

Amazed, because I had no recollection of Seinfeld dealing with hipsters (so cutting edge) – although I do recall some wise words on salsa.

Confused, because he talks about hipster thongs, and I felt sure that hipster (boys, anyway) tended to wear baggy boxers, with the waistband and a few more inches showing.

All very enlightening (as always).
