Based on the photo: 'hipster' = affected bum (a fruity one).

In what universe is the photo's subject admirable?

Can't be the one I'm livin' in.

I have actually talked to some of them here in Tj, they are usually void of any real critical thinking, the things they talk about pure shallowness, even though they regard themselves as unique they are all litle bolsheviks zombies spouting the same common lies as everyone else,they are totally irrelevant i dont think they really need to be discussed abaout

After reading the paper posted in the Dandy thread, I don't think you can equate Hipster with Dandy.  There's an intensity and discipline in the dandy that you don't see in the Hipster.  Also, at least the Hipsters that I'm thinking of, shun athleticism.  Are there any Hipsters that have attempted to turn their life into poetry?

From that paper:

Quote :
In our own time dandyism is as rare as ever. L’homme sensible moderne has the upperhand, I think, though he takes some strange forms. We are surrounded, here on our decadent campus as much as anywhere, by  fops – not by dandies. This morning I walked to campus behind one advertising his foppery by wearing flip-flops at this time of year. The fop follows the rules of affectation in order to communicate a kind of personalstatus based on qualities uncultivated by him – personal features that are accidental: goodbreeding, for instance (which I am not opposed to per se ). Whatever is displayed on theoutside by the fop is intended to communicate material status, and an inner phantasmagoria based on receiving experiences estimated by magnitude and quantity. Foppery is not a way of being that brings outside and inside together through beauty,grace, and activity based on realizing good taste

Hipsters is more or less bohemians. Lefty Ironic alternative laid back oddly fashionable - vintage cloths, salvation army clothes - postmodern

or really seem to be to whoever is categorizing them this way. I don't think many people label themselves hipsters.

Good at negative criticism and not being swept up into some trends and modern hallucinations - many aspects of consumerism, for example - and generally distrusting authority. Not so good at actually coming up with something new. Better thinkers than most of the people out there. But then also quite likely to get caught up in the anti-norm norms they have.

You can equate overuse of irony with postmodernism with stasis. It is a step up from going with the flow though.

Sure, though my sense, perhaps distorted by time, is that beatniks were one kind of bohemian/hipster. One could more exactly describe their culture.
