The Hipster is Dead — Long Live the Hipster!

To paraphrase the quintessential 19th Century hipster, Mark Twain, “Reports of the death of the hipster have been greatly exaggerated.” They’ve always been with us, they’re just “evolving” (how hip is that?), from Babel to Bauhaus, Beatnik to Hippie, Grunge to Hipster, Hipster to, well whatever’s next: Yuccie (hoodies, oversized mustaches, making money), Cutester (self-explanatory), Soft Grunger, or the ultimate in hipness, Normcore–ironically normal, which makes you hardcore! So here’s to a Happy Holiday season–because what could be more Hardcore Normal than that?

    Does “groovy” work?

  8. I’m a female human who identifies as a male bluebird online. I was gender and species fluid before it was cool.

  10. Another decent photo gallery, docent Mitch! btw, Hipster Abe is my fave image. Were Lincoln to suddenly appear, today, I cannot help but wonder what words he’d choose to express his dismay re racial inequality/injustice.
