Once upon a time there were beatniks. And then hippies, and yuppies. Hipsters.
What is next?
The Mod Squad
I was in a hipster section of Ingham County MI a couple days ago. No drugstores, no grocery stores, but plenty of yoga studios, galleries, sidewalk cafes, etc. Walked into what looked like a blue collar tavern. Craft beer aplenty. No burgers, but duck fat fries were on the menu along with whipped goat cheese & peach crostini.
Duck fat fries sound pretty good
From "No Country For Old Men"
Ed Tom Bell [Tommy Lee Jones]: You know, if you'd have told me 20 years ago I'd see children walking the streets of our Texas towns with green hair, bones in their noses, I just flat-out wouldn't have believed you
El Paso Sheriff: Signs 'n' wonders.
People that want to be different. Everybody wants to be like them.
Perhaps people will be clean shaven, have haircuts that are high 'n tight, dress well, respect their elders and all in all just be good humans. Such rebels.
Hard core hipster guys can be spotted at 200 meters. Gals are not so easily identified. You have to get within 50 meters.
Next up: I have hopes for an abandonment of smart phones.
Mentioned straight razors to someone
"Oh yeah, those are real popular with hipsters now"
What's next? Fragmented nihilism.
Since coming across tubs of duck fat in a local grocer a few years ago it's replaced olive oil and become our goto oil for roasting vegetables and sauteing potatoes. Par boiled potatoes cubed, sauteed/browned up in duck fat than dusted with smoked paprika are sublime! I'd imagine the fries would be an equal and the rest of the food and craft beer sound far more interesting than burger ever could.
Agree. Theres a great little neiborhood bar that I go to. Over 40 craft beers on top, solid food, great service. Id kind of struck up a friendship with one of the bartenders. My friends and I go there all the time after soccer games for drink and this girl is great to talk about craft beer with, whats new, whats cool, etc.
The first few times we went, she looked pretty normal but the last time we went she wore her hair up and I noticed she has the sides of her head shaved and was wearing a tanktop and shorts, so I noticed her armpits and legs were unshaven. Nice girl but very hipster.
If you were wondering who buys all the pomade, moustache wax, beard oils, shampoos, combs etc. LET ME GOOGLE THAT FOR YOU
On the plus side, they are helping these companies remain viable. I rag on them occasionally, but I remember when parachute pants and the red zippered Michael Jackson jackets were big.
Given what is popular on this forum, frankly I think there is a lot to like about hipster.
Some might say that there is always "irony" in hipster. The next step would then be a swing back to sincere as in David Foster Wallace's post post modern. But that sounds like emo to me and I do not think that is going to happen.
I am not convinced there is always irony in hipster. Craft beer or cheap beer what is ironic and what is not to like? Duck fat, definitely what is not to like!
What comes after hipster? Who knows? No one saw the Zoot Suits coming, or the beatniks or the hippies or yippies or grung or what have you. For all we know, there might be a 1890 retro craze, with barber shop quartets and polkas as pop music.
Now I'm gonna have nightmares.
