Atleast that is what I think it meant to start with.
Yeah, but nowadays it's used too often and too inappropriately. Some people will call anything they dislike "hipster".

And even when the term is properly applied, it's still used too goddamn much. Why is there so much conversation about these people? I think what it boils down to is that a lot of people like to target their general dislike for anything/everything at hipsters.

Yeah I agree about the part where it is just bandied around too often these days. For what it is worth I think the people who force themselves to have an opinion contrary to the mainstream are just fooling themselves and its not really worth wasting anyone's time to bracket them into any form of sub-culture.

Hipsters are growing like weeds around here. Every chick on facebook has a iphone pic with those stupid black rimmed glasses. While I can agree the beared flanel guy is probably Example A, the black rimmed glasses are the #1 Hipster apparatus. It's gotten so bad I see artists on Kimmel or whatever wearing those douchetacular black rimmed glasses with no lenses just to make the fashion statement.

Anyone who says they haven't seen hipsters just wasn't looking at their faces...

As far as metal hipsters, I haven't read the article yet but that Agalloch video I saw from Baltimore was full of them. Flanel, beard and black rimmed glasses. Little sheep clones who are used to 8-sided dice and World of Warcraft trying to be metal but instead all with cameras in hand taking video to post how "troo" they are on facebook. I'm not judging anyone for any of those things, just stating facts.

Metal Hipsters definitely exist and I don't have a problem with them really. Just those glasses...

^ I wear thick rimmed glasses, but they actually have lenses. I've had a prescription for glasses since 3rd grade, and the reason why I got the thick rimmed kind is because I prefer those over the wired ones.

Yep, silly clown glasses are a massive fashion thing here too.

They looked stupid on Elvis Costello in the '60s, they look stupid now, but with the extra element of being totally fake in 90% of cases.

Precisely this. Terrible eyesight means glasses, not wanting to look like a middle-aged accountant means black plastic frames.
