In Defense of Hipsters

The half-built condos tower above us like foreboding monoliths of our yuppie futures. I take a look at one of the girls wearing a bright pink keffiyah and carrying a Polaroid camera and think, “If only we carried rocks instead of cameras, we’d look like revolutionaries.” But instead we ignore the weapons that lie at our feet – oblivious to our own impending demise.

From The Hipster Must Die and more simply Hipster.

Remember: hipsters don't hurl stones because they are lazy, vain and pretentious. The faint scent of nonviolent ideology, personal responsibility or balanced pragmatism is probably just 'Ginger Lily' by Urban Outfitters.
