The hypocrisy of criticizing you for falling into mainstream, corporate, suburban culture when they're doing the exact same thing. I'll take juiced-up frat boys over that crowd any day.
This has nothing to do with the people in these photos.

This comment by suburb made me remember something from a party I went to once. I used to be real into metal and had lots of metalhead friends and they were throwing a party. Now death metal is cool but not really ideal for parties. So being the party dj sort of person I am I threw in my friends Dr. Dre cd he had in his case mixed in with all the metal. Within like 5 minutes so hoes walk in the door scantily dress They hear the beats and start dancing around. Then after about 20-30 minutes my friends roommate changes the music back to metal and within 5 minutes the hoes left.

The moral of the story here kids.....

Hoes like rap music

This... is probably very true.

One thing that baffles me in such conversations is that what appear to be minor cultural differences provoke such heated responses from people. "Hipster douchebag," "yuppy scum," I hear those often and I can't help but wonder what sort of identity politics are at play in creating such animosity.

If you deal with the hiring process of some of these people then you might see where it comes from....well, its where it comes from for me.

I know, and I admit my perceptions about this particular crowd are skewed by unfortunate encounters with certain individuals. I try not to generalize entire groups (and they are a group, no different than the hippies of the 60's or "gangsta" culture that preceeded them) but it instantly screams pretentiousness to me.

What I see is a bustling street in the city centre filled with a diverse group of people; beautiful girls, artists of all types, interesting shops etc. Don't we always look to Europe and Asia, and wish we could have their well-used urban centres? And when there's photographical evidence of people doing just that here in NA, and it gets labeled as a hipster apocalypse.

And it's not just this thread. I've seen others where just because the people are your fixie bike-riding, banjo-playing, rolled cigarette-smoking twenty and thirty somethings, it's not a legitimate 'thing'.
Worth quoting again I feel like I've seen more culture in this thread than my entire life in Vancouver. Looks like a fun time.

Someone doesn't attire themselves to your suburban tastes makes them pretentious? What a load of codswallop.

Once again, an excellent set of photos from the talented flar!
