On Hipsterdom

Adbusters eviscerates the so-called movement.  The stunning final paragraph:

We are a lost generation, desperately clinging to anything that feels real, but too afraid to become it ourselves. We are a defeated generation, resigned to the hypocrisy of those before us, who once sang songs of rebellion and now sell them back to us. We are the last generation, a culmination of all previous things, destroyed by the vapidity that surrounds us. The hipster represents the end of Western civilization – a culture so detached and disconnected that it has stopped giving birth to anything new.

Brutal.  Just brutal.

    this is not a defense of hipsters, just pointing out that kalle lasn is a retard.
    hypocrisy?
    wouldn’t that be like packaging up all your so-called anti-corporate consumerism for consumer consumption?
    the guy is a fucking moron.

    Definitely had to look that guy up to find out who he was. Meh: I’m not an avid reader of Adbusters but I thought it was a good article (about a year old, actually) regardless, if a little overstated.
