I stumbled across this video from a series of videos on Youtube called “American Hipster Presents” – which I honestly can’t believe a series like this didn’t implode hipsterdom and destroy it forever by being so openly pathetic about hipsterdom itself. I actually posted a video from this series a while back about a “unique” sleeve tattooed and moustached try-hard who throws old-timey “pop-up” parties complete with Gangs of New York style boxing matches and ice he ice picks himself from a block instead of using modern conformity cubes – and I forget all about it.
Well here is video from that series that I overlooked that I simply can’t believe is not a parody – this is as nauseating as it gets my friends. It’s in Portland, Oregon – which is if not equivalent, a close #2 to Brooklyn as being the most hipster infested part of the country. As a matter of fact, a lot of hipsters travel and exchange themselves between Portland and Brooklyn, sharing ideas of how to further pussify both cities. This video has it all: 30 year old kidults; beards; adult Big Wheel/tricycle; thick frame glasses; zany tall and lit-up bikes; mentioning of ART; sleeve tattoos; PBR; stretched earlobes; $700 tires/yet no real job; a helium-voiced, wanna-be biker bad-ass, bicycle geek; infinite leisure time for ‘LOOK AT ME’ bike rides at any given time of day or night; kidults screaming an oath about the freedom to ride bikes and get drunk; and last but certainly not least – disrespectfully playing ring toss trying to throw old bike tires over a tombstone in a cemetery in the middle of the night since nobody has any responsibility the next day. DID I MISS ANYTHING???
GOD, I hate these fucking people with such a passion. WHY? Why has there never been, in recorded human history, a generation of such over-privileged, attention-starved fucking people? Sometimes I feel embarrassed to be part of the same generation; but usually I’m proud and happy that I’m normal an am able to call this social disease out for what it is.
