Trader Joe's Simpler Times is making a surge in some circles. Question: most hipster Justice? I'm going with ginsburg for her lace collar and sweet frames. her studied disinterest during the State of the Union was classic.

I'd pay mucho dinero to see a hipster fall off of his 2 story thin wheeled bike. (no major injury though, maybe just a cool new tear in v-neck print t-shirt) How do they get on/off of those things?

Trader Joe's has these awesome Oreo knock-offs called Joe-Joe's that are fricken delicious.

Do they still make that swill?


I just went online and bought the Zima brand name for an undisclosed amount of money under 25 dollars. In any case, I own it, and will now print retro t-shirts that I'll sell to department stores in bulk who will in turn sell to hipsters for $135 dollars. I'm going to be rich. F Law school.

It's not your choice of dress, it's your strict adherence to the rules set by a non-conformist counter-culture. Don't you see the irony in that? In trying to be a non-conformist, you have to more strictly conform to a group! And you wear fucking girls jeans, making it look like your smuggling pairs of grapes![/quote]


This is such a cliched view of all versions of nonconformity... the real irony is in you proclaiming the irony of it, as if you were announcing something that hadn't been observed a million times before. I don't dress the way I dress because I'm a noncomformist, and being a hipster isn't necessarily about noncomformity to my knowledge. As you can see in my previous posts, my whole argument was that we are all conforming to some sort of paradigm. That's the nature of being human in a post Renaissance world. As for girl jeans: Emo and scene kids used to wear girl jeans until their persistence in doing so led many companies to produce straight, slim and skinny jeans for men, to supply this new demand in the retail clothing market. So, to be clear, I don't wear girl jeans. If I did though, what's it to you? That's my whole point here. People seem so nonplussed, indignant, or worse, belligerent about people's style of dress.

There are things about people who are often known as hipsters which can be annoying:

-Veganism without cause
-The advocacy of any number of political movements without knowledge of the subject matter
-Condescension (though based on this thread, often merited)
-A general penchant for pseudo-intellectualism
-A feigned adoration for bands that they secretly think suck
-Etc.

Stick to these!

watch yourself! joe-joes are just a gateway product which will lead you into socially conscious vegan sausage and the ironic consumption of organic animal crackers. tread carefully in TJ's lest you catch the hipster, which we all know is a fate worse than death!

O'Connor by a landslide. Let's look at the relevant facts:

1) She quit her paying job.
2) After quitting her paying job she decided to pursue her dream of writing a children's book.
3) She relies on a "trust fund" (read senior status).
4) She spends most of her time traveling around, going to parties, and attending lectures and cultural events "just for fun."
5) She occasionally "works on her website."

Who the hell quits their job to attend parties, write a children's book, and work on their website? A hipster. That's who.

the only way I can define hipster is a desire to create things and to appreciate what others create... these are often very simple, like an outfit or a party or a pencil drawing on a napkin, but hipsters derive great amounts of pleasure and importance from the act of creation. so much so, that many of them don't seek out traditional forms of employment, which pisses off their parents (who see them as squandering talent) or others with a stake of the status quo (apparently future lawyers included). So if you really wanna hurt hipsters, it's pretty simple: Not everyone is an andy warhol, but they all kinda wanna be. the whole ironic not ironic thing is a tired meme.

Like, I see that you're typing stuff, but when you started justifying wearing your sisters jeans, all I could see on the page was, "I am a huge puss!"

There aren't very many hipsters at NYU (thank goodness). I guess the academic requirements of getting into a T5 school like NYU pretty much sorts most hipsters out - my guess is that the whole snarky art and media crowd with their "anti-establishment" attitude doesn't necessarily translate to a good LSAT score or a quality legal resume.

It's pretty much self selection. NYU lets in anyone with a good LSAT and a not terrible GPA (that precludes me though fml). And a good LSAT is just intelligence and 4 weeks of solid effort.

I find it ironic that hipsters/goths/emos/other stuck up cry baby douche bags from the suburbs/rich areas of big cities call so many things "cliché" that the act of doing so has become . . . a cliché. :?

Perhaps the most important question we should ask about the hipster and law school is not so much where it would attend, but rather, what would a hipster do with a legal education if a hipster were to try and get one?

Enact legal action against other nonconformist individuals for trademark infringement? I.E., sue other dirty hipsters for trying to steal his/her style?
