Fucking hipsters

latfuhh

Over at dbspin.com, you will find the first article in a series entitled ‘What Is A Hipster Anyway?’. You might have noticed by now how much I love unwieldy projects, and though the words “Prelude” and “Part 1” are undoubtedly exciting, it’s not just that.

Gareth Stack, as well as writing the head-spinningly tongue-in-cheek Marshmallow Ladyboy Jesus and the fantastic Invisible Tour Guide, is an excellent and eminently readable writer. And he’s talking about hipsters. He’s going to be talking about hipsters for a while, it looks like. Who else is talking about hipsters? Nathan Barley, being a cunt about them. Carles Hipster Runoff, putting inverted Derridean commas around everything about them. But what are they?

Worth following to find out. First article is an unpublished archive article that starts with the line “Two music journalists sit outside a franchise coffee house” and ends with the lines “Who the fuck cares? Pop music sucks.”

I have a feeling he thinks I’m one, but fuck that, right? Someone else is, not me.
