If you need a primer on hipsters, check out our field guide to this very sensitive and persecuted minority of skinny white people. But the Cliff’s Notes buzzwords are: American Apparel, Grizzly Bear, Williamsburg, Michael Cera, Hamm’s, iPhone, ironic glasses and anachronistic facial hair (and before someone gets their scarf in a bunch, I meet several of these criteria myself).
While hipsters may have an air of elitism about them, it is unwarranted. Hipsters are, beneath their earbuds and dog eared copies of Vice Magazine, much like you and I. They even dress up their dogs in idiotic costumes, just like us normal Wal-Mart folk.
Check out Hipster Puppies, a Tumblr (we should throw that up in the buzzwords) devoted to dogs that check out Pitchfork every day, wear hoodies and pretend to read The Economist. Oh, Hipster Puppies...I want to take you to the raw food restaurant after the Animal Collective show and just eat you up!
