Hipster Traps

Do you like Hipsters? Do you hate hipsters?My brother Andrew loathes them. And one of his very good friends posted on Facebook this article saying there are hipster traps in New York. I have to confess: I know close to zilch about hipsters. Not even sure if it takes a capital H or a small h. But I just dislike the name. It is an ugly, weak, sloppy, faux cool word. Hipsters. Almost obscene. So I commented on the post of my brother's friend (she is also my Facebook friend, albeit I know her less). I said: "As long as it kills them." I think it deserves to be a great unknown line. And, for the record, I don't think anyone should die. I was speaking figuratively.

I like hipsters unless they're obnoxious about being hip.

Something the director of our movie said: "If you're over 25 years old and have an interest, you're a hipster."

I guess hipsters are just basically the modern version of beatniks really.
