    That's just part of their gimmick.

    Are you evaluating others mostly on their outward aesthetic preferences and do you expect to be evaluated that way? Does the modern digital age make you feel compelled to document every moment of your life for judgment by some audience? Do you make it a point to never do anything considered too mainstream? Are pictured on this website? (content warning)

A true eccentric is a man who behaves eccentrically because it simply does not occur to him to behave otherwise.

    i think hipsters are the people who go home and lie down with a big fat headache because they are mentally exhausted from trying to act cool all day...

    haha, i think the people that attack and make fun of hipsters (and other sub-cultures) are more ridiculous and set in their ways.
    i don't know. i guess it is a lot easier to marginalize people though, rather than interact on a personal and individual level.

    "Hipster" is affecting an air of nonchalance while self-consciously presenting a cultural statement that is intended to seem unintentional and authentic. Often they achieve the appearance of this odd mixture of authenticity and effortlessness, which is anything but authentic or effortless. This is the irony that pisses people off because they are envious.

    I think what pisses people off is it is not authentic. The meaning is ripped from people who have paid dues. So for example they fake the punk aesthetic and rip off what was built by others.

    To some they often achieve the appearance of this odd mixture of authenticity and effortlessness, which is anything but authentic or effortless. This is the irony that pisses other people off because it is deceptive.

    I'm definitely not envious.

    The one "hipster" I do like though is Carles @ HIPSTER RUNOFF. But that's because he's extremely self aware and even more ironic than the ironic people. Funny blog.. sometimes
