    They're disrupting the chocolate industry--so of course the establishment feels threatened.

    ∂ R&A: That searching for the path isnít like Kerouacís search for Godís face, is it?

    Rexroth: Look, thatís all a lot of talk. You donít become a saint until you lead a good life whether in Tibet or Italy or America. When the hipster picks this up, he cheapens it. I donít like hipsters. The hipster is a louse on jazz ... a mimic of jazz and Negroes who believes the Negro is born with a sax in his mouth and a hypodermic in his arm. Thatís despicable. In jazz circles itís what they call Crow Jimism.

    I have been following a new forum and slowly figuring out some of the good posters and lousy ones and tracking all the mega-beefs and other stuff. Some guy at this new forum has a deal where he sees all music through a lens of what hipsters think of it. Every single post is "Hipsters are into this because....." or "Hipsters think this is......" Like the whole history if music gets thrown into a prism of what hipsters think. Its the most miserable way to think of music that I've read in a long time.
    did you tronc today?

    Sounds brilliant. Where is this 'new forum' of which you speak?

    How long before hipsters realize that ramen is just fucking soup.

    Me thinks, Hipsters are on the downturn. Maybe I am just not paying attention any more, but there seems to be a reduction of hipster's visibility of late. Or at least the Hispster uniform is in retreat - the younger bearded folx crew and all that.

    ha...you can tell you don't live in the states, firefinga! admittedly, nyc -- specifically, brooklyn -- is an extreme example but the lifestyle is alive and well in parts of every major city here. consider yourself lucky.

    I think it's fair to say a cultural phenomenon is well and truly in its 'mature' phase when the Sunday Sport is taking the piss out of it:

    I like all their stories about people putting things up their bums or having horrible things happen to their 'bellends'. They choose such great subjects for the photos to go with the stories, too.
