Evolution of the Hipster

hipstersHipster’s been quite the buzz word ever since Urban Velo started. To be fair, it’s often misused, especially by jealous socialites, naive journalists and less than credible media outlets. Still, this image is pretty funny.

    Hmm… they forgot about the whole 1950s Beat Generation scene leading into the original hipsters, the hippies (junior grade hipsters). Oh well.

    There’s the people who really are individuals and then there’s the majority who want to come across as such, in a way that is socially acceptable to their peers. LOL

    I don’t get where the notion of hipsters dressing the way they do to be individual came about? How can you be unique based on how you dress unless you’re wearing some outrageous stuff?
