I Hate Hipsters. June 3, 2006

Posted by hateroftheyear in General Hating, Music, New York.

What the fuck is the wrong with this world? Last night, I went to see one of my favorite bands, French Kicks, at a lower east side music venue called Sin-e. Sin like 7 deadly ones, and E like the letter before F? Nope. It's pronounced shinnay.

I got there a bit too early which meant that I had to subject myself to 2 hours of opening bands. Luckily, the bands weren't too shitty and I got to check out some of the ironic/hipster fashion that the kids are rocking nowadays. It's always funny to see some douchebag wearing a striped wool sweater and cords when it's 1,000 degrees outside. In addition to ridiculous clothing, there were more bad haircuts and moustaches than you could shake a PBR at.

Nothing out of the ordinary, except for one girl with a bowl-cut. She seemed to know a lot of people and spoke with each of the bands as they got off the stage. She was carrying a large purse shaped like an electric guitar and wearing a black tee-shirt. She fit right into the crowd, but often acted a little odd. At first glance, she appeared to be your average hipster- funny haircut, ironic sense of fashion, and fond of bizarre rhythmic gyrations (she was standing next to several girls who were goofily dancing to all of the songs, as well).

As the night progressed, I realized that she is actually mentally challenged. Even though I am a hater, I would obviously NEVER make fun of someone for being disabled. What is funny is this: In a situation full of extreme hipster cases, the last thing that crossed my mind was that she was disabled.

Also, explaining Jeff Buckley’s Life at Sin-e is extremely difficult when in person mainly due to the fact that people search for it by googling “shinneigh”.

I hate fucking hate hipsters. Predictable and transparent. I think I am going to go the local hipster like its the zoo and mock them with pbr and unfiltered lucky strikes.

Yeah, i totally agree. It’s scary when you can’t tell the difference between a hipster and the mentally disabled. I have some news for you though. You’re not alone. Maybe that’s because there really isn’t much of a difference. Most of the hipsters that i have met seemed mentally disabled for sure.
