Stuff Hipsters Like Part II

19 09 2008

Welcome back to the second installment of Stuff Hipsters Like. This week we’re tackling hipster faves dance music, being unsatisfied with where you’re living, and American Apparel.


4. Any form of Dance music including but not limited to industrial, techno, electronic, IDM, overtly-sexual:

Any hipster party can double as a PBR-fueled dance party. Throw your arms in the air and hum the synth line to the Crystal Castles vs Health version of Crimewave. These parties can happen at any time, so be prepared. A car stereo can double as a half-helix of JBLs and a parking lot works just fine as a dance circle. So get your skinny jeans and flannel on and dance the night away because it’s Wednesday and you don’t have a job. Ironic t-shirts and any knowledge of Uffie score you bonus points.


5. Being unsatisfied with where you live

Most to all hipsters aren’t the slightest bit content with where they’re centrally located. 

“Oh man, i’m planning on moving to Brooklyn, just as soon as i get the cash together”

“I think Vermont is nice this time of year.”

“I don’t care if Europe isn’t part of a sound Risk strategy, i’m going there!”

Whether you live in Williamsburg or Fairfax, there’s just no place that can satisfy all of a hipster’s needs. Most hipsters like to mention they’re dissatisfaction and use it as a way to get to know one another. Using the mention of neighborhoods and boroughs, you can find out everything about someone. Avoid daily rumination regarding location can become all too familiar to your hip friends so keep it to yourself…


6. American Apparel

American Apparel… What else is there to say? The classic striped t-shirt, the shiny hoodies and their newly-introduced vintage eyewear. It’s a one stop shop.
