  1. This is awesome. Great find. And far too insightful for this generation.

  2. What a find! Brilliant! I live in the hipster enclave of Silverlake in Los Angeles and this perfectly captures the community. (Disclaimer: I’m 55 years old and so not a hipster.)

    • Well, Dostoyevsky as describing 20 something year olds in 1869, so you could be 170 years old and still a hipster! I’ll need some proof: a picture of rimless glass or loose jeans on the bottom will do!🙂

      • Oh damn. I do own a pair of jeans with loose threads on the bottom, boot-cut. But I bought them at the Salvation Army store, not a boutique.🙂

      • I’m sorry, but you don’t pass my very strict hipster test!😀

      • Hate to tell you this, but I recently discovered, much to my horror, that my preferred brand of domestic beer, Pabst Blue Ribbon, a throwback to my youth in the 1970s, is also the preferred choice of hipsters. But I think that has more to do with price ($6.99 for a 12-pack) than taste.
