Okay, so I am not, like, 20-something, you know? So maybe someone will accuse me of being an old fogey or whatever because I cannot STAND this hipster noise played at cafes!

Anyone feel me on this?

I was in a cafe earlier this past summer in Philly where Skinny Puppy and Test Department were being played.

I found the energy in the room from playing 80's industrial a fitting and soothing backdrop to enjoy my
Ricotta-spinach empanada and seafood zarzuela by.

Just put on some old Joni Mitchell or Gordon Lightfoot and ignore what anyone else thinks.

You know you have a choice not to patronize those cafes, right?

But it won't drown out 9 Inch Skinny Puppy or whatever the frick these trash metal *** hipster bands are called.

And it's NOT music, for anyone's information. I know that back in the day, parents said the same about the Stones and Led Zep. Well, they were WRONG! Those groups, even when hard rock, had MELODY!!!

It seems to be the same old, same old. Two scenarios: either they are TOTALLY oh-so hipster, right down to the hand-poured coffee or the manager (who is Gen X or a baby boomer) is off for the day or weekend and the 20-somethings have run of the place. In those scenarios I usually hear Neil Young and the Doors and then on Saturday morning it's thrash metal.

Ain't no one got time 4 that!

I don't like people who call and think of themselves as hipsters as much as anyone. That's why I don't go to places where they tend to congregate.

I dislike going to Kohl's because they are always playing pop country music, which I do not like at all. I dislike anything that sounds like Nickelback or Taylor Swift or something out of a JCPenney commercial.

I don't think anyone actually calls or thinks of themselves as a hipster, the word has become synonymous with d-bag. This comic strip might amuse you: The Theory of Hipster Relativity
