A lot of people think Diamond Rings is a really hipster thing, but I think they make great stuff.

For me, music isn't even really a big thing. It's more all of the other things that go a long with it. Like the image and whatnot. It's kind of hard to explain, but yeah. I think it'd be hard to force feed yourself music just to fit into a clique. The music will be here years after the fashion and fads die away. Wanna see a hipster transformation?! Just as an example, 2 of my good friends. I've known them since perhaps 2nd or 3rd grade. Used to have Tool t-shirts and System of a Down ones as well. Perhaps Marilyn Manson as well.. but not positive. Now?



They're both on the far left. The guy with the big beard, and the girl immediately behind him with the yellow shirt. The picture was taken, of course, with a camera from a flea market. Unfortunately they took down all the pics with them in black clothing.. but you can make believe. The bearded man used to look like:

Yeah I agree. It's just a kind of thing that band has fallen into because of their fans.

I agree. People make the mistake of thinking that mass consumerism = conformity, and that their little niche tastes are therefore anti-conformity. But it's all part of capitalism; just another side of the same coin, and anti-conformity is one of biggest movements in capitalism. Nobody admits to being a cog in the machine, a conformist, as it makes you sound like an idiot. So people look for things that will set them apart from others.

Their little sub genre style only remains exclusive until lots of people cop on to the fact and join in, which ignites an arms race where everyone is chasing new styles and tastes to set themselves apart; distinction-seeking. This is a never ending spiral.

Hipsters ironically do everything.

Right now the ones I know are ironically listening to Kayne West. Last month my roommate was "ironically" listening to Waka Flaka Flame.

From what I can tell the more awesome you can make something that is lackluster at best, the better.

That is what I hate about true hipsters. It's just downright retarded, just cries for attention.

My personal opinion is that it stems from early insecurity that they are trying to erase by seeming super cool.
