Can I use the same approach to gain favor with blipsters as I would with hipsters? For example, the Stuffwhitepeoplelike blog says that I can walk up to a group of hipsters, mention how much I love David Sedaris, and then "Bam!" I'm in. But will the same approach work with blipsters? Instead of mentioning [X obscure indie rock band] do I have to say, "Hey guys, you don't even know rap music until you've heard Rammellzee!" Do I need a moleskine notebook? How about those shoes that kinda look like socks? Will I need to erase the last Carter album from my iPod? Can I even have an iPod? Help!!!

Why would you want to become one? Blipsters strike me as annoying for some reason. Maybe because I hate the whole "Black Nerd" phenomenon, the only acceptable black Nerds I know are Pharell and Steve Urkel. And I especially think Childish Gambino is overrated. He's basically a Hipster version of Lil Wayne, and because of that, ALLLLL the Hipsters swear he's great YET they hate Wayne. SMH.

You know, I often find myself thinking "My shoes are OK, but my toes are too close together. How I would love to wear shoes where every toe had its own different compartment!" This is the solution to all my problems!
