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.

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