Behold, The Hipster-Zoic Era

Paste Magazine has put together a genius spread, “Evolution of the Hipster,” detailing the ascent from The Emo to The Meta-Nerd. Having witnessed an embarrassing number of these stages, I’ve got to commend them on their accuracy. Especially for the evolution of accessories like American Spirits, beards and Sparks, the queen of alcohol-enhanced energy drinks. It’s tragic that it took a whole decade to discover and eschew so many mediocre things, like keffiyahs and trucker hats. Have hipsters run out of cultures to appropriate? What’s next? Do we start over with yuppies? I’ve got my fingers crossed for a hipster “Mad Men” phase that never ends. Back to Prohibition fashion! It’s time to put your new years predictions down for 2010, what’s the next evolutionary step for the hipster? Adulthood, maybe? [Paste Magazine]
