THE URBAN HIPSTER MANTRA EQUATION!
Are you noticing a pattern yet? That's right, you can do anything you want, and still claim the
moral and cultural high ground! Convenient, no?
THE BASIC FORMULA
Step 1: Pick something you like! -OR- Pick something you don't like!
Step 2: Pick some glib, empty, or ironic rationalization for why you like or don't like it!
Step 3: Indulge in the thing you like, all the while admitting to its inherent lameness while explaining your special stance that makes liking of said thing A-OK with hipster friends and potential lovers! Dismiss the thing you don't like with a wave of the hand and a scornful, "Yuck!"
