An argument recently pooped up on DH boards that just because DH uses an iphone doesn’t mean he’s a hipster, just as Sarah Palin twitters but that still doesn’t make her one. But let’s look at this with our 3d glasses:
Diehipster has an iphone, a wordpress blog, uses twitter, judges people’s fashion, has an xbox 360 (proving that he’s a big oversized kid), and makes snarky comments all the time about people besides himself, and hates hipsters – hates them so much he made a blog that makes fun of them. HIP HIP HIPSTER! His only non-hipster defense is that he claims he has a nice thick “New York” accent – which of course is code for his Italian accent. And yet I know a lot of hipsters who have Italian accents. He’s a big fat hipster. It’s kind of sad to watch. Poor little guy.
In unrelated news, one of the commenters on the site, Hipster Holocaust, recently sold a fixed gear bike in the D.C. area – the siren call for the hipster cause. So once again, another hipster basher who is probably seen as a hipster.
The irony adds so much character to the site.
The other posters like the Texas guy are nerds. Straight up. Internet nerds. Play Warcraft or Fallout 3. The I Hate Josh! guy is one of the most interesting youths on the site. Full and full of anger. But still a nerd. But of course my favorite is the Rabbi poster who seems to be a Hasidic Jew. This is fascinating because I have pretty much zero contact with the Hasidic population. It’s cool to see things through their eyes. Tell us more about yourself, Rabbit.
