Post-Hipsters - hipsters who hate other hipsters for being hipster.

k because frankly, I think being scene and being a hipster are on completely different planets.
It's pretty easy to tell when someone is a scene kid.
But since "hipster" is a term meaning to be hip or cool or down or whatever with the current times there is room for a vast generalization that causes all the douche bag hipsters to give all the nice ones bad names.
When I say douche bag hipsters of course I mean the ones who constantly scowl at you and try to claim that Radiohead is better than the Beatles.
In my case, I may be a hipster but I listen to all kinds of music and appreciate it for what it is.

I don't see how anyone could get upset about kimya dawson getting popular because she still plays diy shows.

I'm still confused about you being a long time fan then placing it in the rock/metal forum.
God you're dense. What do you think the quotations around "novelty" implied?
Also: Just because I'm a "long time fan" doesn't mean I'm familiar with this forum's layout. Did you actually read this thread?

Quotations around novelty implies a stupidity and an ignorance as to what quotation marks are supposed to be used for.

Also, I don't understand how a lack of familiarity led you to believe the Moldy Peaches, an anti-folk band, belonged in a rock and metal forum.

I see this discussion leading no where but may as well chime in.

I really don't see why you're so concerned with people liking a song in a movie. True, that when people lap it up and attempt to look down on you for musical tastes its annoying, but its really shallow of them. Hell I couldnt give a **** about people not liking my music taste. That like people trying to be elitist because I don't like bananas or I don't know what some obscure fruit it.

Bootom line: like what you like, if other people want to put their heads for far up their asses let em.
