"Best $2k I Ever Spent!" We're All Living In A Hipster's Paradise

by Chiara Atik · February 9, 2010

Damn, it feels good to be a Hipster! The world, or, at least The East Village and 60% of Brooklyn is your oyster! There's an American Apparel on every corner! Your obscure taste in music is not quite so obscure as to prohibit huge parties with hundreds of other hipsters!-

There will come a day when these kids will hang up their pleather unitards, take off their neon sunglasses (and discover they actually see BETTER at night without them!), shave off their ironic mustaches, and move the suburbs. They'll buy cars houses and worry about 401ks  and won't have anymore time to tirelessly search out the coolest, hippest, most underground music. In fact, there will come a time when, from the backseat of their SUVs, a small child will complain about the music selection. And the former Hipsters will cringe, and wonder how it all came down to this, wonder when everything changed, and think back to that fun night at Europa in Brooklyn, when they had no cares in the world.
