I like how all I've got to say is- you're a hipster.Quote from Azriel
Quote from Nekrodrac
Fyodr Dostoevsky and James Thomson? Oh man....that was such a class hipster move.
Maybe I should just stop trying to make jokes. You're obviously not hip enough to get them.
And I really don't understand how not reading mangas would make someone a hipster. I didn't even say it to make myself seem cool. I mean, I am cool, but I don't consider myself cool for not doing anything. Like, what kind of person would I be then?
And the drama and denial follows. It's quite entertaining.
Oh did i tell you? You're a such a hipster Az.
An awesome one, that is. Not the regular kind. Like a cool cool hispter with self-fulfilling statements so cool they are above any comments.
Anyway, game time over. To save you from the torment of replying with yet another (ironic) video to compensate for your seemingly lack of linguistic skills to support your post , I will share some honest thoughts with you.
Being a hipster has nothing to do with mainstream. It's an attitude. A rather dubious one in my opinion as it involves the association of an individual's personality with a statement, hobby, music, media or art. It's about the laziest projection of personality within our society- as opposed to having achievements/accomplishment/deeds to show for it.
Mind you, these are still actual valid indicators of a person's taste and therefore a cue as to their possible compatibility with you or another group, but the key difference is the emphasis the hipster will put of these aspects as opposed to the 'normal' person. It should also be noted that most(if not all) individuals have a hipster approach to a certain part of their life or taste.
It serves as an important fulfillment of the human's desire for mystery which in turn provides an added allure to their character. When it becomes an exaggeration, you become a hipster.
You can be a hipster by saying you like listening to Justin Bieber. The difference between you and his teenage girl fans is the obscure reason you will claim behind the liking. Along the lines of you making a underlying statement of some kind (that probably nobody will understand). Of course it would actually take some rather very ingenious hipster to make this one work out but I'm sure it's not impossible.
Now to come back to your statement and drama on manga- it was a truly worthless original post you put forward. A person expressing their dislike for manga for 'x-y' reasons is far more respectful than your hipster attitude.
Why should it be anybody's business to dare to question you on that??
Simple reason- you expressed a public opinion/statement and as such it is automatically open to scrutiny and challenge.
Are you old enough to understand this?
I am doubtful but perhaps in a few years time, you might learn the value of an informed and reasoned statement or opinion.
Now that you've been schooled, you can go do your homework, son.
