    meh. the term 'hipster', or at least it's use as a derogatory term says more about the person that uses it than it says about the person it is directed at.

    You have got to be kidding. Is there any universe in any dimension when any of that could be remotely appealing or desirable?

    Never have I been so pleased to be old and out of it!

    "hipster dufus"

    and the term hipster is so overused it has lost all meaning.

    that flannel pic posted by MH only reminds me of SW&D circa 2006

    can we get back to posting shoes and calling everyone uncles and nephews and neglecting to use the spoiler tags
