You're using "hipsters" ironically, right, which itself is ironic?

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-07-02

One of them has the glasses for it, but yea, I don't think ska music is particularly hipster... unless its popularity has dropped even more, making it obscure?

But their wardrobe is totally off. They should look more like Doctor Who cosplayers.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-07-02

* yea = yeah.

I truly hate that I made that typo, since I hate it when people think "yeah" is actually spelled like that.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2013-07-02

I thought you were saying (phonetically) 'yay' as in 'yea or nay'

Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2013-07-02

I thought it was cool too. Biblical man!

Jet Bin Fever - 2013-07-03

Yea, I think we should reintroduce "yea" and "verily, verily" to our common language.

baleen - 2013-07-04

Yes I was. I was anticipating that SolRo or some other innocent person would consider the man with glasses a hipster. The description successfully launched some threads about hipsters so I think I did ok.

lotsmoreorcs - 2013-07-02

hey its that ska song about AIDS

zerdzer - 2013-07-02

i have not once seen the word "hipster" used properly on this website

love - 2013-07-02

just this once then, for the record:
here be hipsters

That guy - 2013-07-02

The word "hipster" has totally sold out.

Old_Zircon - 2013-07-03

Ironically enough, I recently read an interview with Sam Hyde from Million Dollar Extreme from not long after that video came out, and one of the things he said was that making fun of hipsters is so played out that only hipsters do it anymore.

THA SUGAH RAIN - 2013-07-03

That's not what the word irony means.

Old_Zircon - 2013-07-03

Actually, I would say that the only video on the site that actually depicts hipsters being made by someone who is on record saying that hipsters are played out is fully in line with one of the half dozen or so definitions of irony.

Thundercougarfalconbird - 2013-07-02

Can someone clearly define hipster for me? Like, guidelines? Because everyone seems to have a different opinion of it. So far all i've gathered is that it refers to people with specific tastes counter to the person using the words.

These guys don't seem like hipsters, they just kinda seem like dorky potheads.

SolRo - 2013-07-02

Hipster: see Baleen.

ashtar. - 2013-07-02

All I know is that whenever someone mentions hipsters on this goddamn website, everyone has a huge fit about NOT REALLY HIPSTERS GUYS I KNOW ABOUT HIPSTERS.

SolRo - 2013-07-02

'hipster' hipsters?

I knew about hipsters before they got popular!

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-07-03

"Hipster" is getting to be as difficult to define as "goth" was, before they decided they were a race...

baleen - 2013-07-04

Hipster was pretty difficult to define when I was at hipster age. It's like the term "politically correct." Originally it referred to Maoist doctrine and was pretty serious (by contrast, the actual hipsters in the 40's and 50's who listened to jazz in Harlem took themselves really seriously too), but then it became a joke among leftist intellectuals to say that something was politically incorrect over dinner or whatever.

Then it began to spread among the not-so-intellectual leftists where it became annoying and tedious and changed policy at overpriced liberal arts private colleges. Then it spread into the main stream media, and by the time it became a rallying cry for Rush Limbaugh, the fact that it was a complete joke in the first place was simply lost from record.

So when a poor little dweller like SolRo calls someone a hipster, it's just kind of funny to me. I admit completely that when I was younger I spent a lot of time trying to find cheap clothes, listening to music that nobody else did (VINYL WAS CHEAP AND MP3's WERE NEW AND EXCITING!), and getting drunk, but the word has always been a self-denigrating joke. I believe there are people who think that hipster is just a different kind of cultural identifier, like goth, which is far more descriptive. "Where is the closest hipster bar?" Maybe that has happened, in the same way that something as obscure as "emo" has now become a complete line of clothes, a set of haircuts, a shop in a mall, a very particular sound in music completely divorced from what it was in the days of Sunny Day Real Estate, and so on. Hipster isn't a cultural identifier, and I don't think it ever has been. I can't see any musical tastes that unite them, no clothing styles, no profession or even socioeconomic class, though I'm sure most people think most are white and middle class.

Now it seems a hipster is a person who is a vegan, or maybe a person that eats lots of meat ironically, a person that likes sustainable agriculture and urban chickens, but also somebody who has parties where they drink Pabst and eat Tostinos. They definitely listen to music that is not on the Top 40, except when they DO, because hipsters will listen to Lady Gaga at parties because, I don't know, that's what they do sometimes. They will also shop at Urban Outfitters and American Apparel, but actually they won't, because hipsters are only concerned with wearing things nobody else does, so they shop at vintage stores. I know this is a lot of time to waste on such a stupid topic, I've just enjoyed the way the term has become so widespread that it has lost its original identity. What was a joke amongst insecure college aged people circa 2000 has become its own animal that perhaps speaks more about the people that use the term than any of the people that could be identified as hipster in the first place.

I just imagine somebody like SolRo leaving a convention or a long week of playing a video game every night and passing someone in the sunlight while thinking, "Hipster." When really it's just a way for him to distrust anything that intimidates his very comfortable world.

You don't want to see what a hipster you are so you pretend there's no such thing as "hipsters" -- like every other hipster.

baleen - 2013-07-05

Leave your house.

Maru - 2013-07-05

Leave your hipster milieu, and you'll see how weird you look.

baleen - 2013-07-05


La Loco - 2013-07-02

Those "hipsters" and their sideburns! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lzpk5dMhVE4

ashtar. - 2013-07-02

Oh jesus. They make a how to video and then have a 'secret ingredient'. Fuck you and your mom's wood panel'd basement.

badideasinaction - 2013-07-02

So these videos are all just clever viral marketing, right?

That guy - 2013-07-02



BRIAN, now ravaged by time, with his liver-spotted arm receiving an intravenous drip, just turns his head slighty toward camera and the out-of-frame person across from him.

He struggles to breathe. We slowly pull back toward where he's looking out of frame, and we see that he has a futuristic Yankees t-shirt on.

Worth... it...

We pull back a little more and boom up/tilt down. Beside him is another bed. And in that bed, decrepit, withered, and inimitably full of life, is MIKE.

Mike coughs the driest, hacking cough we've ever heard. We boom down while pulling back past his bed. As he manages to turn his head, we tilt up and see across to the other bed.


A blur in navy blue and white. That blur is Brian.
As we rack focus, a smile spreads on Brian's face.


Mike's face eases itself skyward. We see him in profile now, and past him, his old compadre.

It... was... [coughing]

We finish the boom down/tilt up and Brian is obscured by Mike's profile. He continues to cough, then, suddenly, he stops.

Mike? MIKE!!



... a Blast.

He moves his farther arm.


The BIRD'S EYE VIEW of both beds that we passed through earlier, but now at 90 degrees so they beds are frame left and right. Mike reaches toward the center of frame. Brian wheezes.

He reaches out his gnarled, arthritically closed hand.


Their fists bump.


That guy - 2013-07-02

Editor's note:


Make sure to overcrank that shot of the fist-bump, so I have the option to make that happen over a few hundred frames.

Raggamuffin - 2013-07-03

the only thing keeping them alive was the baja blast

chumbucket - 2013-07-03

Not hipsters but I fucking hate ska.

Stopheles - 2013-07-03

Mountain Dew (excuse me, "FRESH Mountain Dew," Powerade, lemonade powder and pool chlorine.

I love that they think that there are individual ingredients, rather than citric acid and chemical flavoring.

THA SUGAH RAIN - 2013-07-03

Man I'm glad we didn't have youtube when I was in my knucklehead days.
