One of the funniest things I've seen in awhile. Hipster Superheroes!

Greetings True Believers!

Did you ever see those pics of superheroes dressed up like hipsters? Well, they were funny. CollegeHumor.com found them funny enough to create a animated video about them. It had me rolling! Enjoy!

"Please. Hulk only smashing ironically."






Yes, Snake-Eyes approves.

Eh, to each their own. Wasn't bad, but I can't say I was exactly howling.

I don't think I'll ever understand what a hipster is actually supposed to be.

yourscenesucks.com--the perfect go-to field guide for scenester sterotypes of all stereostripes--has two different hipster examples to give you some idea: the Fixed Gear Hipster and the Williamsburg Hipster.

Hipster is someone who likes something you hate or hates something you like and dresses different from you.

There is a more accurate definition but that seems to be how people use it NOW.

I have no idea what a hipster is either, but I do keep thinking of Syndrome.

Didn't Morrison have Professor X actually doing something like that, telepathically reading the mind of an author as they were writing, so he got all the original ORIGINAL ideas?

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-01-27 03:21 pm (UTC)(link)
that was in Ultimate X-men actually.

You know what? I live in Portland, I drink microbrews, I have a distinctive hat (ACTUALLY distinctive, not that goddamn same narrow-brim fedora they're selling in fifty colors all of a sudden), I drive an antique car that's always in need of repair, I get all my clothes second-hand or online, I've got a small magazine I edit, and the indie film I wrote just got produced and is currently looking for distribution.

I AM A HIPSTER. There, I said it. I am the label everyone only ever applies to others. I am the thing nobody can ever admit to being. I am the Untrue Scotsman. It's me, okay? ME.

It wouldn't bother me so much, but the basic hipster joke is the same one that once bore the names of emos, goths, ravers, grunge kids, yuppies, yippies, hippies, party kids, mods, greasers, JDs, teddy boys, beatniks, and so on back to fucking flappers. It's always the same: "You're expressing your individuality by acting and dressing just like everyone else in the subgroup you deny being part of! Tee hee! That gets funnier every time!"

No offense intended to the original poster. I've just been kind of inundated with that joke (originally written by Vandal Savage about Goths) lately, and needed to get this off my chest.

You're a brave man, sir.

I wear vintage clothes and flat shoes, I also have a distinctive hat or two, I ride an old bicycle and sometimes I make my family eat vegan food. I am with you, hipster brother.

The Prof X one made me laugh, and I kind of want that to always be Wolverine's costume. Always.

That is the CUTEST Spider-Man EVER.

And the Prof X thing has a point for pretty much anything creative. Rarely does what you have in your head translate entirely onto the page/easel/recording so that would be cool.
