In Oregon you only get blond/e hipsters.
I've been to the Northwest like twice, and just a sea of white people... No hispanics (like me), and only a few Asians.

I used to go to raves and clubs back in the day. Now I just hear my music on Pandora. I mostly only hear electronic music.



I used to go to a thing called "discos".

We wore bad clothing and danced very funny.

These punks have nothing on us!

Ahh, lol, did you have one of those stuffed animal backpacks and a pacifier hanging around your neck?
I was way too urbane for such savage events like raves though I knew all the DJs for the raves in my area, lol. I was a spoiled little VIP club kid that didn't have to pay cover, no wait in line and got drinks for free in exchange for showing up, dancing and looking cool. That's the real reason why I didn't do the rave scene right there--turned out that clubbing was cheaper, lol. Club owners are really weird.

Cue horrible Bee Gee music flashback of "Night Fever". Retaliatory comment--> Old fart.

I never donned any regalia. I went to raves and clubs very rarely. I was kinda poor back in those days. I couldn't even really afford to buy CDs. When I started working, and became a little more fortunate in my situation, then I was able to buy some music, starting in the late 90s. So I got used to buying and hearing CDs; besides hearing my friends' music.

Well, you can look at the bright side...the odds of anyone having blackmail worthy photos of you is probably greatly reduced due to your circumstances at the time. There's always a silver lining.

Hipster is synonymous with obnoxious.

It's an understated sort of obnoxiousness. A subtle, insidious type. Lol.

What is a hipster?

It's a member of the latest generation of counterculturalism, following in the footsteps of beatniks, hippies, punks and slackers. Except that each of those subcultures at least brought something useful to American society; hipsterism has brought nothing useful (so far.)

They pride themselves on being well-read, but can't discuss anything they've read intelligently.

They're often from middle-to-upper class families, but dress like homeless people and often have poor hygiene.

Their politics are militantly leftist, without being able to logically defend their position on anything.

They hate sincerity or visible effort.

They hate "old people" (anyone over 30.)

They love anything that is aesthetically off-putting to others; art, music, etc. The more obscure the better.

And all of this is fine. Let them do what they want with their lives. The annoying part is how insufferable they all are about it. In bars, at work, at school, on-line, on the street. You can't escape their smug self-centeredness; it's the only emotion which they seem to be able to display.

Hipster - Pretty much what the whole PNW thinks it is... Truth is, if more people identify then not, it's no longer sub or counter culture but hey - don't tell anyone

This video is also typical of what hipsters watch. Notice the prominent use of psychosis:

You havent been here enough, then. Portland has a HUGE asian and hispanic population (percentage-wise).
