"Hipsterdom is the first “counterculture” to be born under the advertising industry’s microscope..." ahWHAAA?

Come on, seriously? For one thing, this smacks of revisionist history and nearsightedness. The whole piece sounds like it was written by someone much too immature for a national audience. The writing style is hackneyed and there is absolutely zero analysis or commentary. For another thing, since when is dressing in skinny pants a fucking "counter-culture?" Is this journalism or just a C&P from a fat chick's Livejournal? It's obvious reading the "quotes" that Mr. Haddow has taken some poetic license, which, I'll grant, may be necessary when you're trying to write ten pages on a thesis as shallow as "Dude, like, what's up with hipsters, you know?" What's amazing is that your buddy, the one who rides fixed-gear and always has on a brand new 59fifty from Dave's Quality Meat isn't a hipster, but the dude across the bar with skinny jeans and a scarf drinking a beer(!!!) is. Or, if you like, the only people who are hipsters are the ones you're not friends with.

Wait a minute, this dude is the one rallying against hipsters? Is this a joke? Alright, boys, that's that last straw. Time to nuke Vancouver.
