Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I'm going to bed. But I figured I'd start a new [chat] for a new day.

Also, chat of comics for literature majors.

Comics for literature majors. Seems like Tycho should have gotten in on that.

And finally...

"I’ve always found that word ["hipster"] is used with such disdain, like it’s always used by chubby bloggers who aren’t getting laid anymore and are bored, and they’re just so mad at these young kids for going out and getting wasted and having fun and being fashionable," he says. "I’m dubious of these hypotheses because they always smell of an agenda."


What a d bag.

"You don't like us not because of X, but you don't like us cause you're fat and ugly so there."

    I don't really mind that hipsters try to make themselves look working class

    I usually assume that people can tell I'm working class because whenever I try to dress classy I fail miserably

    Yeah that pretty much fucking nails it.



    Though I see a difference between Mike's "label shit you don't like a hipster" and my somewhat specific idea of what constitutes a hipster.

    My last beef: Why do we act like this is a new thing?

    Punks, skinheads, beats and hippies all dressed in leather, peasant blouses, torn jeans, etc etc to emulate a socioeconomic class that they weren't inherently a part of. But suddenly now we treat this new subculture with such disdain and call them the end of the world. Subcultures have been around forever, everyone seems to have gotten along just fine.

    Now we just have blogs to complain about them.

    He's become too self-aware.

    Bottle Rocket was interesting, Royal Tennenbaums was his peak and The Life Aquatic was fun.

    His aesthetic, directing style and narrative and character arcs have never grown, changed or evolved in almost a decade.

    Watching his movies now, I can't enjoy them because I'm constantly bombarded with him telling me I'm watching a Wes Anderson movie.

    ...I wanted to like Fantastic Mr Fox so badly...

    so much center justification...

    Hindsight is 20/20. I doubt very many people in those subcultures were aware they were "creating culture".

    There's some really interesting things being done in the arts right now. Just because you may not like the particular culture doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Whos to say that picking parts of other cultures is bad? I think in a lot of ways it's creating some pretty interesting cross-cultural experiments.

    My guess would be people who are actually working class whose way of living has now become a passing trend

    Or people who actually have personalities and don't need to chase such trends to substitute for one

    And if they were doing a lot of fusion stuff that might be interesting. But the vast majority of stuff coming out of hipsters is little more then a fetish of overly romanticized purity.

    The issue is the substitution of irony for authenticity without actually rebelling against much in the process. This isn't the 1920's. Dadaism already went there.

    Problem One: If hipsters hadn't produced a culture, by what rubric would you then accredit hipsterism to someone?
    Problem Two: How have other subcultures created other cultures by any means other than re-appropriating the detritus of mainstream culture?
