    It's a blogging platform. We had something similar when I was young. We called them notebooks. They also tended to be filled with drivel.

    yes...

    we smoked a jay on top of the crotan river dam which was pretty awesome actually. and he held it to my lips which was pretty smooth.

    but I think he was too high because he got weirded out at the 7-11 as there were tons of cops there and then asked to be taken home.

    i mean i think he wants to go out again

    I don’t know what world you live in where young people aren’t creating anything

    Not all young people are hipsters.

    so what?

    have you ever heard of a thing called tumblr?

    It's a blogging platform. We had something similar when I was young. We called them notebooks. They also tended to be filled with drivel.

    So then your ultimate conclusion is that youth in general is a pretty useless incubation period in which people wait until they become adults and then suddenly their thoughts and opinions become valid?

    And all of them actually produced culture. Hipsters seem to do little more then to sort through the refuse pile of cultures gone by.

    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?

    Problem One: Adapting a mixture of various other cultures allow for the creation of a culture. That does not mean that the culture produces anything of value.
    Problem Two: By altering it. Punk took Rock and Roll and added the anger of their period. This give something unique to them. Hipsters value the exact opposite. They aren't a creative subculture.

    p1: but those very values are only measured, in turn, by the current cultural measurements. If they aren't producing anything of value, perhaps you have to actually analyze what is "valued" and in turn what the cultural implications of that are.
    p2: This seems pretty ridiculous. How is "adding anger of the period" altering rock and roll, and how is that adding value. This is a fluff answer, and I do not accept it as valid. What about the thousands of artists who are producing art of far greater cultural value than the punks. Give me a punk artist, and I guarantee you that I can submit a quote hipster unquote (whatever that may mean) whose work is, GASP, shockingly more culturally creative than a punk artist, or at least as much so.

    This is such a silly argument, D&D, and I am surprised that you are carrying on like this. Culture and Subculures are rarely anything other than net-neutral -- gains here and losses there which merely alter the course of life, both for better and for worse.

    Sure, they are valued on current cultural measurements. You can make up any bullshit measurement you like to defend them but based on the metrics of the last few centuries, they come up short. Admittedly, producing a cultural metric that assigns them value might actually lead them to create something. It would be pretty novel.

    And you don't see how adding the anger of rebellion produced a kind of music and movement that differed from cultures that came before it? That it rejected the excesses of mainstream music and added a harder edge to it then music that came before? And you really think you can find a hipster artist that you seriously believe will have as much long term impact on any kind of art as say the Ramones?
