I've been using the word "sketchy" a lot. Please tell me it's not hipster.

No, it's just annoying.
As long as you don't say "creeper" you're fine.

This. Probably the most annoying term ever. Especially whenever it is said, it is usually subject to overabuse, in like every other sentence.

But it's not really hipSTER. Not in origin, at least. My dad has been saying that since before I was born, and he's far from being a hipster. More of a hipPY.

If I understand hipster ethos though Kwilk, that is exactly it. Recycling old blue collar stuff into the "cool" of the moment. It's actually just something that a segment of kids do almost every generation.

I prefer the hipster of yore. The cats were jazzy.

Interesting point. Hipsters of today can't be jazzy, and maintain the ethos, as jazz was not blue collar, but rather avante guarde. Iterations are interesting things, no?

I don't think Cunnylingus actually had that conversation with REAL people. I think he THOUGHT that the visions appearing in his room after finishing 2/3 of his fifth of scotch were real, but we know otherwise.

Hipsters and hippies both belong in the same camp if you ask me.
