Top 10 Things Hipsters Love

I spent a few hours loitering around a second hand record store and a bike shop, and got to know what our city's favorite little frowners enjoy.

  • Hipsters also love denying the fact they're hipsters. Have you ever met a hipster who's all like "Man, I LOVE being a hipster!" because I haven't. No one ever self-identifies as a hipster.

  • I agree, AK. I love how hipsters are so non-conformist it hurts, yet they all wear the exact same crap and do the exact same crap. But I guess nothing is edgier to conform to than non-conformity, right?

    I remember little girls being interviewed in the 80's before a Madonna concert, all dressed in that lacy lingerie Madonna look of the time, telling the interviewer that they dress like that to show their individuality.

    Dying @ #8. Hilar.

  • In reply to TRSlyder:

    Are the ones in #4 the same ones who never stop their bikes for red lights, even though people are trying to cross the street? They're lucky we walkers have self-control...

  • In reply to TRSlyder:

    Question: How many hipsters does it take to change a lightbulb?
    Answer: Some obscure number you've never heard of. Don't worry about it.

    HAHAHAHAHA

    Being anti-hipster in 2011 is passe. They're people, no better or worse than any other demographic... wait a sec, they actually are preferable to a number of sectors of Chicago namely gang bangers, people who hang out at college-theme bars past age 22, city workers, Hyde Park professors, Emanuel supporters, 4th-generation Beverlyites, anyone who lives in Old Town / Lincoln Park, Board of Trade yahoos, foodies, half-azzed artists, etc etc ad infinitum.
    The problem with hipsters is that they are concentrated in a few enclaves- WP, Logan Square, Ukie Village, Bridgeport etc. If hipsters spread out they could not only find cheaper rent they would actually improve monolithic neighborhoods. Dunning, Brighton Park, Clearing, Canaryville, Austin, Little Village, could all benefit from an moderate dose of hipster. A few hipsters in Hegewisch would be a big improvement.

    Um... I would rather hang with ANY of those groups than a bunch of conformist, judgemental, smelly, dirty, elitist hipsters.
    There's nothing worse than someone thats disingenuous and there's nothing more fake than hipsters. "Oh so you say you grew up wanting to have wear mustache wax and skinny jeans?" No you didnt.

    #11: Smug comments on message boards.
    #12: Using the word "passe".

  • In reply to TRSlyder:

    So I touched a nerve with the college theme bar comment. Let me guess Dan, you're 32, hang out at one of the Michigan State bars, tweet/blog for a living, and get sent into a tizzy by white people who don't follow the Cubs.

  • In reply to AnnabelBleach:

    This dude regurgitates a lot of his lists from past lists that have already been written by other people.

    Try linking websites in the comments showing these and they will be censored. It's both smug and "passe."

  • In reply to AnnabelBleach:

    I would say just about everything on the Bro blog can be applied to the hipsters. Have you ever seen 5 hipters together? They look like they all share the same closet. Hipsters have taken conformity to the next level! "Hey lets see who can shave their head into an ironic bald spot" "Hey have you heard that skinny jean shorts and staches are totally in?"

  • In reply to TRSlyder:

    lol. Love this! Super funny!
