The history of the Hipster
This is great
I can see the Beatnik evolving into the hipster, or de-evolving into the hipsters we hate today. So, the hippies came from the Beatnik.
Kanye: the Hipster
A guy at work mentioned Kanye West and we both came to the conclusion that Kanye West is a hipster. Look at the facts…
-He wears oversized glasses from the 80s and 90s.
-He wears Skinny Jeans.
-He wears stupid vintage clothing from hand-me-down stores and yard sales.
-Why are you wearing a sweater in the summer?
-He’s self-centered like a hardcore hipster.
-Facial hair of varying degrees.
Side Note: I am a bicyclist, and I laugh every time I see a Hipster riding on his Fixed-Gear Bike with his tight pair of pants on, sweating his ass off. Yeah, you may pass me on your light bikes, but I can travel up steep hills with my gears.
Side Note II: Don’t wear the vintage GI Joe/Transformers shirt unless you know what it means. I want to ask the young hipster dude if he’s seen an episode of Thunder Cats if he has the shirt?
