The Socratic Hipster

19 Aug

This blog is intended to be a creative outlet for what I have deemed the Socratic Hipster: one who knows that the hippest one can possibly be is by knowing that they are not hip.  “Hip” as an ideal no longer exists.  Today, we have a Hipster Spectrum ranging from the high pH hipsters that have not one but four bicycle caps (for accessorizing purposes) and listen only to obscure Japanese jangle pop  to your basic, eclectic, relatively harmless pop culture snob.  It is an important distinction to make.  I want this blog to serve as a way to broaden the hipster horizon through pop culture enlightenment, not a venue for one-upping and condescension.  Unless of course somebody really deserves it.  That being said, no Nickelback album reviews (unless it’s done in jest…and even then).
