You used to be able to tell the difference between hipsters and homeless people... (c) Chuck Klosterman

Now, it's between hipsters and retards. I mean, either that guy in the corner in orange safety pants holding a protest sign and wearing a top hat is mentally disabled or he is the coolest fucking guy you will ever know.

If you haven't read a Chuck Klosterman novel then SET YOUR GAME UP! I recommend that you start with Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs it's HILARIOUS...

I live in Wicker Park so I hear about hipsters day in and day out... I'm kind of on the outskirts of the "scene" so I am not really overwhelmed by hipsterness... Besides, there is a corner store, IHOP, beauty supply store, comic book store, kicks store, movie theater, AND a hood food spot all within walkin distance... Clearly I get the best of BOTH worlds... a fusion between the arts and the hood... kinda like yours truly :)

This article is old but I laugh everytime I read it... Enjoy, if you haven't read it already :)
