Ahhh, The Culture wars.
I guess it's not hard to find something to disagree on.

Wanabet that the person who started this thread will be voting McCain/Palin?

It's pretty easy to know what buttons you can push on this site to get guaranteed, over-the-top reaction.

Wouldn't it be funny if the national Republican party got to the point of accusing Obama of being in favor of leash laws.
And forcing everyone to clean up after their dog.
Or banning Pit Bulls.
Or being in favor of more 99¢ stores.
Or BJ's carts on every corner.
Or non-prescription fashion glasses.

My god! What's the world coming to??




Better vote for McCain!! Before it's too late!!

WOW...I really hope that was a sarcastic comment...

So neither of them are that bad.


+1 to the 'neither of them are that bad'

also, isn't hipster just a glorified word for 'tool'?

That's gorgeous. Blame the JC crime rate on the yuppies. Did the yuppies bring the drugs and guns in too?

PS: do you even live here?

I like Hipster guys. I think they are cute even if they are way to skinny.

I feel foreign in the city I was born and raised in. If I see one more person with the t-shirt with scarf combination, I'ma flip. When I go Downtown now, I feel like I walked into an Iphone commercial. But oh well, I guess they'll help the rest of JC eventually, in some indirect way.

JC is cheaper than most gentrified areas of BK and Queeens, from what I've seen. Besides, being a hipster doesn't mean you are poor (pleanty of posers with cash in that scene).

I like seeing younger people everywhere in JC; hipster or IT geek, I don't care. They bring certain freshness to the neighborhood and they probably spend more money on coffee, food, drinks, clothes, etc. than others. I think lux condos and young people both add to the desirability of the city. I'm for both!

The word "Hipster" doesn't define, in the slightest, the almost hip-"ish" yuppies who are moving into JC. If you really want to know what a hipster is, go to WILLIAMSBURG, BROOKLYN. Find a more applicable word if you need to categorize the people moving into JC, but trust me... HIPSTERS CANNOT AFFORD TO LIVE IN JC!

Also.. why is that all of the people who post on this thread sound like Fashion/Style Police?

This would be much much worse, and I feel lucky I don't see them hanging around much...

To me, this all comes down to one question as to whether these people are good for JC:

Who would you rather have hanging out in the Wayne street park:

A: Same group as always.
B: Hipsters.

Yeah. Don't be hatin' on Muppets. Muppets are an American treasure, like jazz. The Muppet "Danny Boy" vid on YouTube is priceless.

What's worse is this poster's snarky, snide post and this topic thread.

Must come with McCainitis and Palinsyndrome supporters who post here.

Like walking back into High-school. A separate lunch table for the jocks, blacks, Asians, whites, nerds, emo's, etc. Glad I used to leave school for lunch. Ha-ha. "big-ups" to chiefdahill & everyone else find this subject slightly disturbing. (I said “big-ups” does that make me a wanna-be-west-indie?) Ha-Ha

I'm getting confused...hipster, hippie,yuppie, yupster, new yorkster, nerd, geek, geekster, poser, wanna-be, mid-westerner, california dude, surfer, stroller moms, dog walkers, poopsters...

whats worse? i say the luxury condos because construction starts at 5am across the street from my house and it sucks now that I no longer have the AC on to drown out the noise....

Yeah, the JC hipsters seem generally friendlier, like they're actually trying to be part of the neighborhood instead of take it over. Williamsburg feels like a retirement community to me, except it's the young sectioning themselves off from everyone else.

Full disclosure: I am a glasses-wearing graphic designer who does indeed live near the Grove St. PATH. (Fact: I don't know a single professional artist who *doesn't* wear glasses. Staring at your work all day tends to lead to eye strain.) I really don't think of myself as a hipster at all though; I'm far too far toward the "actual geek" and "9-to-5 job" ends of the spectrum for that. I really like the neighborhood, I shop and dine local, and I support stuff like the Loews. I'd be really sad if people thought I was bad for JC.

So what, exactly, is wrong with people wearing prescription-less glasses? Seems to me just another way of accessorizing. Most people don't really NEED belts to hold their pants up, I see girls wearing pashima scarves when it's not chilly out, hats when it's not sunny or raining, headbands that don't keep hair out of the face etc. Who the hell cares? If anything, I'm flattered that people want to emulate my blind ass.

More concerned with boring mopes filling up all the luxury high rises. getting a little to crowded around Grove with that scene.

Is "hating on" someone better than just plain "hating" someone?

This could possibly be the dumbest thread on JCList (although I still think dumbest thread goes to that Congo the Pit Bull thread).

In my line of work, i have to deal with a fair number of hipsters.

I've commented on people's glasses, only to have them tell me that they are fake. And if you ever venture into an Urban Outfitters, you'll see that they sell FAKE glasses.

i'll bite....

how do you know they're fake? do you run up and knock them down and then try on their glasses?

you're a prize brian, a true prize.

I've had to wear glasses for over 20 years. So, I take offense when people wear fake ones so they appear to look "artsy".
