this is the coolest hipster ever.

Lives in a major city; Chicago. Miami. New York City. Los Angels. Baltimore. etc.etc.

Listens to obscure bands, and references these obscure bands, in conversations. Says the name of the person in the band, then the band.

Everything is a question.

Corrects your language.

Is hardline something, an "activist" so to speak.

Wears makeup, in an unusual way.

Makes there own clothing. Has thriftstore modication clothing.

Smokes, and thinks its cool they smoke.

Is against people who smoke.

Rides a bycycle.

Likes underground hiphop & indie rock, the same, because "its basically the same thing".

Speaks in coded ironic refrences.

Lives either by themself or in some sort of artist collective.

Knows someone famous.

Is some sort of an artist, yet is "down to earth". ((like that matters))

spells there name in a unique way.

has a sense of irony about themself. or takes themself far too seriously.

looks non chalant.

if you havent seen this person in a long time, they act like "who are you?"

At parties they listen to the lamest hipist music.

they do cocaine.

they have no traditional political beliefs.

they go to college, at some really expensive place. And take about good schools & bad schools. like good & bad schools actually exist. when in truth it depends on the person, not the school.

thinks people from long island, or other designated places are lame. since they are from the sprawl.

makes fun of people. often, cause they different from who they know, or who they are.

Mtv 2
If anyone suffered through Mtv 2's show on PUNK ROCK. And got pissed off,

then come to my journal & read something that is a lot more relevent & thought provoking then the claptrap rhetoric you was poisen'd with.

Such as Punk Rock started as a revolt against the mid-197O's art-rock: P-Funk, Eno/Bowie, Suicide, Can.... were all creative & artsy-fartsy.

On art....

I shall no longer speak to you in metaphor's =(God/Jesus)- John 16:25

A work should contain its total meaning within itself and should impress it on the spectator before he even knows the subject - Henri Matisse, 1869 - 1954

Artist's need not try to change, improve or convert.... they must only bear witness-Otto Dix

i'm patchworkshad, just saying hullo as that's custom i suppose.

i wanna live in AZ one day on a ranch called El Rancho de Cajones ("ranch of the balls")with a sign on the gate that reads: "Ring Door. Don't Feed the Llamas." For now I pretend and parade around the house nekkid in my leopard print cowboy hat. And when people ask WTF? I just reply, "well, ma'am we don't do that sorta thing in this here town."

i love Nj for all things abandoned, especially the forgotten amusement parks called insane asylums and those lovely resorts for by-gone ideas in the industrial parks and factories. no where else per capita are there such h.e.a.v.e.n.ly. places to lounge about.

always up for adventures and what-have-you's, if you have any.

i'm frustrated with the anorexic look being so glamourized and popular in the indie-college kid "scene".
this is such a common complaint coming from a girl, but damn, it's a dumb thing.
i'm fighting my elitist tendancies, which come from being in art school and working in a record shop.

Quite often I look at peoples' livejournals that seem to scream, "I'm with it. I'm in the know." And then I have to wonder, how do these people come across in real life?

How many people on LJ are not apart of any "scene" but then manufacture themselves online to appear as "hipsters"? Are the fake elites better or worse than the real ones?

Does categorizing people like this create a new form of elitism?

I know where to buy 12 sided die.
Elitism is a fail safe against "not really being cool".

I theorize it comes from insecurity...

Elitism might also come from taking the Dandy Warhols as more then just music. It might also come from trying to be Andy Warhol's entourage.... in 2002, he died in 1987.

Or from trying to be a hipster.

Hell, it could even come from trying too hard!

At any cost, im proud to be pretentious & uncool.

Even though its small, I'm glad this community exists.
