View Full Version : The hipster represents the end of Western civilization

Im sipping a scummy pint of cloudy beer in the back of a trendy dive bar turned nightclub in the heart of the citys heroin district. In front of me stand a gang of hippiesh grunge-punk types, who crowd around each other and collectively scoff at the smoking laws by sneaking puffs of "fuck-you," reveling in their perceived rebellion as the haggard, staggering staff look on without the slightest concern.

The "DJ" is keystroking a selection of MP3s off his MacBook, making a mix that sounds like he took a hatchet to a collection of yesteryear billboard hits, from DMX to Dolly Parton, but mashed up with a jittery techno backbeat.

"So this is a hipster party?" I ask the girl sitting next to me. Shes wearing big dangling earrings, an American Apparel V-neck tee, non-prescription eyeglasses and an inappropriately warm wool coat.

"Yeah, just look around you, 99 percent of the people here are total hipsters!"

"Are you a hipster?"

"Fuck no," she says, laughing back the last of her glass before she hops off to the dance floor.

Ever since the Allies bombed the Axis into submission, Western civilization has had a succession of counter-culture movements that have energetically challenged the status quo. Each successive decade of the post-war era has seen it smash social standards, riot and fight to revolutionize every aspect of music, art, government and civil society.

But after punk was plasticized and hip hop lost its impetus for social change, all of the formerly dominant streams of "counter-culture" have merged together. Now, one mutating, trans-Atlantic melting pot of styles, tastes and behavior has come to define the generally indefinable idea of the "Hipster."

An artificial appropriation of different styles from different eras, the hipster represents the end of Western civilization a culture lost in the superficiality of its past and unable to create any new meaning. Not only is it unsustainable, it is suicidal. While previous youth movements have challenged the dysfunction and decadence of their elders, today we have the "hipster" a youth subculture that mirrors the doomed shallowness of mainstream society.

the user comments are more valuable than the article. some of the better points:

- the state of affairs described has long been the case. there were wealthy inauthentic punks, beats, hippies, b-boys/girls, etc.

- each parent generation makes a similar fuss about 'kids-these-days'.

- the article relies entirely on gross generalizations.

- the author offers no solution to the underlying problem (poorly identified and articulated in the article) of widespread apathy among youth with regard to societal problems, hence unwillingness to rally behind an identifiable political agenda.

- author complains that hipsters do not identify themselves as such but categorizing oneself with any vague term, whether it's 'punk' or 'bboy' or 'hipster', is ridiculous for obvious reasons.

- in a postmodern, globalized society unlike any era before, a blending of subcultures into one bland/neutered hodgepodge is the simple reality. hipsters did not cause this, but they respond to it. author's stubborn resistance to macro-scale societal evolution is misguided at best, delusional at worst. addressing today's reality with this faux-purist 1960s revolutionary attitude will not work - the critique must adapt to the present environment.

- many/most of the people reading adbusters regularly and subscribing to their phony anti-establishment mantra would fit the article's concept of a hipster.

I love the 'so-and-so is the end of Western Culture' shpeal. Idiot.

It will die off once it becomes too exploited, as if it hasn't already, and people like this author will have something new to bitch about. Although he did have a good point about the cool-hunters who are going to turn around and sell these hipsters the irreverence that defines their scene ala Urban Outfitters and American Apparel. Heck, been into a Nordstrom lately? It looks like a chic Urban Outfitters.

While you make a few decent points Randy, I think more blame should be focused on E!, Vh1, and MTV

The reality shows that they put out (and people ACTUALY WATCH...REGULARY) are just absolutely horrible for the brains diet.

She and I probably had a bit of a falling out as her boots phase continued. Neither pair is great but the second one is just embarrassing.

OK, fine, it's more likely that things would've gotten awkward circa 2003-2005 and if anything happened it'd be over quickly and me ragging on her boots is really just bitterness/sour grapes.

But, really, I think I'm justified anyway. I am a fan of good boots but gah, those'ren't good boots.

I'd love to say the hipsters stole my facial hair ideas, but to be honest we started doing them around the same time. I don't know how to feel, especially considering I wear buddy holly glasses and currently have a flannel on and own an iPhone and am never seen without my iPod and I wear weird hats. But I don't like fixed gears. That's what really makes a hipster, right?

Plus, I'd like to think I'm too earnest.

I have a feeling a lot of hipsters are the same people who wore Jincos and listened exclusively to Marilyn Manson in the 90's. then they realized the dyed hair and face make up wasnt getting them laid so they picked up something more 'sophisticated'.

Also, hipsters are responsible for the resurgence of PBR outside of the midwest. I hate pbr.

I am pretty sure the skinny head band thing is no longer "deck." Natasha Khan doesn't wear them anymore, and the last time I saw anyone wear one, it was a group of women in their 40's at Glasto, which was a long time ago.

So I just watched the Walken scene again on youtube then saw the first comment posted below it.


What an insensitive asshole. Walken's character makes himself vulnerable and Allen's character stomps on him. It is only fitting that Allen be driven through the rain in a 911 by Walken. I hope that Allen's character shits his pants.

which is really delightful on several different levels.

Is internet deja vu a sign of being a hipster?
No, it's just a sign you've been on the board more than 6 months....

I have a feeling a lot of hipsters are the same people who wore Jincos and listened exclusively to Marilyn Manson in the 90's. then they realized the dyed hair and face make up wasnt getting them laid so they picked up something more 'sophisticated'.

Also, hipsters are responsible for the resurgence of PBR outside of the midwest. I hate pbr.

Pabst > Water. At least in the sense that the two are equally refreshing after a long bike ride, but one has alcohol in it (barely).

I don't get all the Pabst hate. Whay do you expect? Obviously it's not a microbrew. And it's way better than Natural Ice, Busch or their ilk.

Rainier is way more hip anyway.

I used to love those old Rainier commercials where you would hear a motorbike approaching in the distance. I can't do it justice without posting the youtube vid. May have to go looking for it.

Paul Simon's greatest work as a performer of any sort is in that movie.

Rainier is equally shitty but widely embraced up here, home town and all.

To be clear; that wasn't a statement of support. I'm more of a red wine and liquor guy anyway.

Someday you'll have a checking account that can suffer the extra $1 (or realize the folly of acting like you don't). Life is too short to choke down any of that piss you mentioned. Beer is for more than just getting wasted.

Seriously. Pabst is perfectly serviceable when you're broke. If I can afford a better beer, I'll buy it, but that's not really all that often.

I never saw them, but my dad loved them when I was a baby. I had a Rainier shirt that said Timbeeeeeeer and had a beaver chewing through a beer can.

Busch beer. It's what I grew up on. It's hard to turn away. I will take Busch, Lone Star or even High Life before PBR.
