Intimation of gentrification
















When do you know that your old neighborhood is dangerously close to becoming yet another hypergentrified hellhole?

The day you find a flyer offering a “Big Reward” for a stolen Dutch Modern chair, that’s when.

Just back in LDN from NYC's East Village and I can't stop wondering "are New York's hipsters really dead?"

Awww, Downtown/Brooklyn hipsters. Don't you just love them? I can almost smell the mixture of stale beer and self-righteousness.

Give me a Brooklyn hipster over a Manhattan hipster any day. Daddy is less likely to be paying the rent if the hipster is living in 718.

But yeah CS, I live by Pratt and I am about ready to buy a BB gun.

i'd actually take a twerpy wburgh nyu hipster over an aging south brooklyn grupster or whatever any day. at least the nyu kids have some semblance of style and the ignorance of youth on their side. what's the excuse of the entitled 30 year old with a big mouth and a limited understanding of politics?

By now, if you live in any major metropolis, you will notice a sizeable population of hipsters coming out of the woodwork. They all suck and are mostly self-righteous twenty somethings with too much time and money on their hands. Usually, they are they type that want to stake a claim in absolutely everything for the sake of satisfying their egos.
Frankly I put them, backpackers, emo fags, and indie geeks in the same category.

Another myth is that hipsters have money. They dont. They have just enough to buy retroware drugs and and ipod to make it seem that they're not as broke as they actually are from living in that damned city. Irony is just the excuse they use for dressing in what they can afford.

Worthless twats, one and all.

The shit that annoys me the most about hipsters is that these fucks have parents with enough cake to install them into these trashy apartments with high rents. Hipsters have ruined the real estate market in NYC because they will pay $2000 a month for a studio apt. This forces me to find six Mexican roommates in order to pay my rent on my one bedroom apt. We sleep in shifts. Three to a bed. Foot to mouth.

Did I say nullus already?

hipsters = artfags in a public setting.

they wear tight jeans and smoke cigarettes and are always in the fucking way when you need to get to the bar. Generall they have cake, but prefer to look dirty. They really like cans of Pabst blue ribbon and music with guitars.

The epitome of being a hipster in 2007 = being on a kickball team in the 'burg'. That be Williamsburg, Brooklyn for the Londoners.

Welcome home CS!

Metrosexual: Have you gone to that hair salon I told you about?

Scruffy artist: I walked by...

Metrosexual: It's beautiful.

Scruffy artist: I can't go in. It's too hipster.

Metrosexual: No! It's anti-hipster.

Scruffy artist: Well, I can't do the cultural math.
