The False Narrative of the Hipster

The Hipster is the final form of consumer. He is the end point of the Western commercial consumer culture begun in Europe back in the 17th century. The Hipster is perfectly vapid. His mind possesses no coherent ideas, only pre-linguistic images all referring to products in an entirely commodified environment. For the hipster all is packaging and advertisement. There is no substance other than the production of images and affectations which self-referentially indicate other advertisements and packages. His being is animated by the primary instinct-like drive to purchase.

The Hipsters scavenge through the ruins of bombed-out meaning, looting the corpses of words and adorning themselves arbitrarily with the smoldering debris of a wasted Western civilization.

Totally agree love and might I also add that they have completely ruined Stardust coffee house and Austin's. I especially hate seeing their girl jean beard sporting visages anywhere. There is something condescending and equally arrogant about hipsters that require face punching.
