The Irony of Hipster Media

hipster_shirt

It seems that the irony of irony-loving hipster culture is the media that caters to it: accepting a fate of perpetual self-deprecation and tongue-in-cheek consumption.

Hipsters might not call themselves by name in public or amongst friends – and may even in some cases deny their hipster-ness.  But for the most part, they are a self-aware breed who have become a delightful demographic.  My favorite is what I like to call the “FUBU” hipster content…the stuff by hipsters, for hipsters – created lovingly while the irony slowly eats away at their insides.  ;)

Here is some example content:

Hipsterisms.com – it’s “so meta”

Hipster Ipsum – dummy copy text for hipster creative professionals

and, most lovingly, this ethnographic definition of hipsters on urbandictionary.com

But finally, if you don’t click any of the links above, watch this:

ThePopularitéBug

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.
