The 2007 Hipster Olympics

Most of my friends in college were film and photography majors. I am, therefore, intimately familiar with modern hipster culture. And I hate it. I won’t go into all my problems with it, that’s for another day. Chances are that you either feel the same way as I do, or you’re a hipster yourself. At least that’s what I thought.

Talking to people at work, it seems that there are those out there who, through some luck of circumstance, have never crossed paths with a hipster and aren’t familiar with the term. These people are often curious and want to know what this sub culture stands for, and how to spot its members. I usually get as far as “they’re all douchebags” before apoplexy takes over and I can no longer speak.  If you’re like me, then this video can come in handy. It’s an excellent primer on the ironic douchy-ness of hipsterism. Just send this link and save yourself from ranting.
