Excuse me I don't have time for this! My PBR is getting warm and my trust fund private jet thats taking me to my doctor so I can have my body torn into two so I can be in Williamsburg and The Mission at the same time. Then we'll see who laughs last. Besides Anchoresse...
In San Francisco, "hipster" is used by everyone who doesn't live in the mission to refer to people who do live in the mission. And aren't bands supposed to "hip?" I mean, most new and/or young bands are that.
Ryan is (finally) right. "Hipster" as a pejorative is used nearly exclusively by other hipsters, or expired hipsters, who would be hard pressed to explain how the same word didn't apply to them.
You say it = you are it. And who the F cares.
To me, a bunch of twentysomething idiots hating on another bunch of slightly younger twentysomething idiots for being 'hipsters' is mighty funny. But then, what am I but a 39 year old expired hipster? I'm sure all the 43 year old expired hipsters used to look down their noses at me when we were all twentysomething idiots. Now they look with envy at my slightly less gray hair and slightly less flabby gut.
