McCarren Park - May 8, 2010
Dont Feed the Hipsters

"The Trustocorp crew--who when last we checked in were filling stores with fake products like Banko (eat the rich) cereal--are back with a new public service sign. It reads: Don't Feed The Hipsters, and is appropriately placed in McCarren Park, where kickball season just began. But let's presuppose someone ignored this warning and did feed the hipsters, what do you think they like to eat? (Asking for a friend.)" [Gothamist]

5:32 is wrong, we had one space for a black player, but it's taken...unless you've got a good coke connection.

Probably something from the taco truck. Hipsters love MEHxican.

There are a lot more reformed Jocks, sorority girls, and high school stoners in the kickball league than actual hipsters.

your a hipster by being white, from the midwest, listens to shitty indie rock, wearing tight jeans and a flannel, riding a track bike, and being a total douche!

Aren't hipsters made up of reformed jocks, sorority girls, and high school stoners? I'm so confused!!!!

Being anti-hipster is officially more annoying than being a hipster.

Who cares. Trying to be superior to other very similar young white folks literally just like youselves in most every way... is moronic. And makes for seriously lame art.

5:54 so true. All of Williamsburg is what you're talking about

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2010 8:28 PM

Now I am worried that I am a hipster and nobody will want to feed me including my girlfriend. But seriously there are better things to make signs and rant about that have better comic relief than hipsters ......?

Posted by Free PSN Codes | May 11, 2010 8:48 PM

yes 8:10, thank you. if loving music and art and film and pursuing those interests/patronizing those fields plus sometimes dressing up or liking girls/guys who dress up in slightly silly garb and possibly smoking a joint or having a beer = hipster, then bring it on (AND PLEASE FEED ME! i like food too)

Hipsters don't eat. They buy beer in styrofoam cups, and buy the crappy cocaine at the Turkey's Nest to have in McCarren Park.
Get with it you old farts.

in this case, giving attention to the sign is synonymous with 'feeding.'

Posted by Anonymous | May 12, 2010 9:13 AM

Excuse me, but Wolf/Cave bands are so 07.

Perhaps a "Neon" band

Posted by Dan | May 12, 2010 9:21 AM

perhaps no band

Posted by Anonymous | May 12, 2010 9:40 AM

I'm too old to be a hipster. I wish I was younger and more laconic. And skinnier. Definitely skinnier. I do enjoy The National, so that helps. Or does it not? I'm so confused. I do like hipster girls, though, although some of them seem to need electrolysis.

Posted by Anonymous | May 12, 2010 10:30 AM

I read this site everyday and I am not a hipster. I listen to bands like Grizzly Bear and The National and Holy Fuck but don't feel the need to dress like a complete idiot to visually show people my tastes in music.

(This is where the idiot hipsters on here tell me that Grizzly Bear, The National and Holy Fuck are shitty bands and make terrible music just like every other band covered here then will say something like So Cow is revolutionary or won't say anything at all b/c in reality they listen to those bands too and just chose to hate on them in a blog setting.)

I saved you the trouble of responding so you can continue eating your soft pita chips and roasted red pepper hummus.

hipsters smell their own crap and believe the hype created by themselves. Seems that no one living in Williamsburg is actually from Brooklyn.

Guys, leave hipsters alone. They're good people and would totally be nice to you if you were better dressed and didn't listen to bands that make them cringe with embarrassment (largely because they're associated with people who dress like you do).

hipster is dead... i went to see broken social scene on saturday night and music hall was filled with fratty dudes and their blonde girlfriends from manhattan. if you can't find hipsters at a broken social scene show in williamsburg, then where can you?

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2010 10:27 AM

what if I saw the National 7 years ago with 50 other people (before most of you heard of them) and thought they sucked? Was I a hipster then? Am I a hipster now? BTW... I still don't get why the National are popular.
Were kids who tried to dress cool when I was a kid "hipsters"? Haven't there always been assholes who tried to dress "cool"? Am I a hipster because I live in Williamsburg? I have for 15 years now...

He dont want a job, too busy being ahipster wonna be hip type guy cause when ur really hip, you lose the crowd and you have your own fan base solo. Flip the script of what it is too be hip. Lead that moment and let people join you and hate but bottom line is that you are a leader and never follow an Azz-Hole, let them follow you.

Why the fuck does everyone think Hipsters do cocaine? I'm basically what you'd call a hipster and I don't want to do cocaine EVER! Its a bad idea lol...

Posted by Collin | June 1, 2010 7:02 PM

Hipsters are parasite douchebags that messup neighborhoods, they wind up paying double rent and cause a ripple effect of high rents and displacement to people that actually bust their asses for a living, score one for you guys. They should nuke BK, it served a purpose at one time, but now you artsy fartsy wannabe fags moved in and just plagued the hood of BK.
