OK, hipster parents, I get that you’re all WAY TOO ABOVE IT ALL to actually acknowledge being a dorky bunch of Moms and Dads, but I’m about to let you in on a little secret: you’re all a bunch of dorky Moms and Dads now. That’s what Moms and Dads ARE. You aren’t a young… READ MORE »

For the record, the upcoming movie “Premium Rush” — about what appears to be parody of a bike messenger — looks kind of terrible. But it stars My Fantasy Dream Boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt, so I’ll have to watch it on DVD eventually. But here’s a breakdown of his hipster tendencies in the movie (and hey,… READ MORE »

Participating in the Hipster Hunger Games might be no big deal if you’ve, like, already been a raw vegan or whatever. But for the rest of us who are off in our overly expensive apartments downing PBRs and listening to that really cool band you haven’t heard of yet, it’s going to be kind of… READ MORE »

Hey, hipsters aren’t like me and you. Regular housing is just so confining and restrictive. And that’s why some particularly ambitious members of the hipster class have taken to finding alternative means of shelter. Like tanks. Yes, tanks. Could anything be further from the hipster mentality of ambivalent permissiveness, freedom to wear stupid hats and… READ MORE »

Are you wrongly accused of being a hipster just because you wear vintage dresses and men’s cardigans and have perfectly coiffed bangs? If so, whip out your thick-rimmed glasses and read the words on this adorable little print: “I’m not a hipster I just dress like one.” Might I suggest posting it by your front… READ MORE »

A few weeks ago, my brother and I were looking at old family pictures and we came across a photo of my dad in the ’70s. He was wearing giant Terry Richardson-style glasses, short shorts, some kind of subversive message T-shirt, and rocking a full beard. We looked at each other, and I whispered, “Oh… READ MORE »

I’m glad that Yelp has finally recognized the hipsters as a category of people that need to eat. Now you can find out if a restaurant or bar is known for its “hipster” ambience. But you’d better act quickly, as once an establishment earns a “hipster” rating, all the actual hipsters stop going there. Maybe… READ MORE »

“[Ellen Page and I] created a pretty stupid hipster versions of ourselves [on her HBO show “Stitch ‘n Bitch” with Ellen]. … We both want to become artists of any type or form. She’s the more earthy bitter one, like, We’ve got to save the world — that kind of hipster. I’m more of the,… READ MORE »

Smooth move, Camel. You may think you’re being smart by touting Williamsburg, the Brooklyn hipster enclave, on your new cigarette packaging. You think you’re appealing to youngsters who feed on Brooklyn pride and the idea of “authenticity.” But newsflash: hipsters hate being called hipsters and probably aren’t going to associate themselves with products that imply… READ MORE »

If you live in Brooklyn, ride a bike, wear skinny jeans, or listen to bands with the words “wolf” or “deer” in their names, you’ve probably been called a hipster at one point or another. And each time this has happened, you’ve probably denied it or been offended. Looks like you may now rest in… READ MORE »

American Apparel CEO Dov Charney is done with hipsters, but it has nothing to do with his company going down the toilet and nearing bankruptcy. Rather, Charney explains, hipsters are over, stylistically-speaking: “Hipsters are from a certain time period … The stereotype of a hipster is not something people aspire to anymore. Do you want… READ MORE »

Remember young Jessica and her adorable “affirmations” video that went viral earlier this year? She of the blond ringlets and empowered fist pumps stood on a bathroom vanity, stared herself in the mirror and proclaimed, “I can do anything good!” before yelling a long list of all the things she likes (her parents, her… READ MORE »

Someone has finally asked the question on all of our minds: How many hipsters can you fit in a single, brightly colored car? Even if we never find the answer, at least we’ve learned that “with such an amazing field of vision, it makes being judgmental of people who aren’t as cool as you… READ MORE »

Given the chance, there are plenty of things normal people would like to do to hipsters: push them off their bikes, wipe the smirks off their faces, maybe laugh at them. But one comedian who went to Wiliamsburg, capital of hipster culture in Brooklyn, New York, had a goal that was decidedly less aggressive… READ MORE »

In need of a little Friday distraction? Us too. That’s why we’re entertaining ourselves with a hilarious Tumblr blog called Hipsters Have to Pee. The site re-blogs lookbook pics and sources street style and fashion spreads for models/posers/hipsters bent into weird shapes. Ever notice how they always do that awkward legs-together, shoulders slumped forward thing? READ MORE »

I’m just gonna go ahead and come out and say it: I used to be a card-carrying hipster. And back in the day, I had a lot of fun with that. For one, the group wasn’t as universally loathed as they are now. If you can even believe it, kids, it was actually considered kind… READ MORE »

We get that American Apparel’s colorful cotton basics have become staple items in most wardrobes. We also understand that sales can make people a tad crazy. But the scene outside of this U.K. American Apparel rummage sale still seems a tad excessive. Shouldn’t hipsters be more interested in making the rest of us feel… READ MORE »
