The Hipster Hatred Paradox

Saturday, October 22nd 2011

I like hipsters. I like people who dress up. Who hang about hip places. Who affect aloofness. Who try to be weird.

I think it's fun.

I don't think many hipsters enjoy themselves, though. It seems like a lot of hard work.

But it's fun to know they're around. Adds colour.

A lot of people don't like hipsters, though. Pretentious. Annoying. Etc.

The people who don't like hipsters are also hipsters.

Let me explain.

It is hard to tell where the device begins and the network ends.

In fact, they are the same thing.

Eventually you become the network and the network becomes you.

Eventually the network starts to define reality.

And, at an opportune moment, he will jump out in front of you and shout:

"Not so! And I know why!"

And run off, never to be seen again.

Immortality

Tuesday, October 18th 2011

I was pondering what it would be like being immortal.

And then I thought:

Imagine how long immortals can procrastinate for.

And then I thought:

I don't want to be immortal.

Country music can be a lot of fun. And to prove it, I've rustled up some great tunes.
