Response to Your Dad Was A Hipster Before You:
So I did manage to chuckle quite a bit, but of course your dad was “the original hipster.” “Hipster” fashion is all about appropriating fashions from previous generations (preferably 80s and 70s) including facial hair, tight pants, short shorts, etc. and using the word “ironic” as if it made sense to require an excuse. I notice that part of it is nostalgia for the things we remember from our early childhood. It’s why people love vinyl records, Ataris, and having enjoying the visual qualities of a CRT. And then there are the people who dress like they were kicked off the set of a Dickens-inspired movie. Fuck them.
