SMOKY TALKS  -  Hip Klip Hipsters
Hipsters are over-running the world
 
… I found out they aspire to be like Larry the Klip. Hipster???? What’s a hipster?…..Is it like a dumpster ? Or a blister?
 
Among the things I learned about Hipsters is this online dictionary definition of Hipster:
 
Hipster noun, Slang.
 
1. a usually young person who is trendy, stylish, or progressive in an unconventional way; someone who is hip.
 
2. a person, especially during the 1950s and 1960s, characterized by a particularly strong sense of alienation from most established social activities and relationships; a beatnik or hippie.
 
3. a performer or admirer of jazz, especially swing; a hepcat.
 
That sure sounds like a description of me.
 
 
Hipsters are in very substantial numbers all around the world.. Europe, Japan, USA, LA and NYC, even hundreds of thousands in Bangkok. Oohhh.??? I’m a hipster? Identity crisis !!!!!
 
There is a ‘phenom’ going on here. Here’s a link to a really great article about this world wide Hipster phenomenon :
 
The Hipster Index: Brighton Pips Portland to Global Top Spot
 
 
I hope you took the time to look at that online article. It is lots of very important Not Fake News.
 
Hipsters are everywhere … all over the planet, more and more young people are fed up with the ‘square’ culture they were brought up in and are turning to the hipper ideas that have been the brunt of ridicule in the past but turning out to be much cooler and far more user friendly.
 
So my conjecture is that, even though I am 73 years old I am a Hipster. I’ve dressed like a Hipster for 50 years, I’ve been talking the way Hipsters do, since Jr High school in the ‘50’s, I’ve been playing Hipster music since the ‘60’s, I play jazz saxophone, and I totally feel like a Hipster now. No one has been more alienated than me. I feel like now there is a home for this black sheep of the family. So I’ve chosen to refer to myself now as Larry the Klipster in solidarity with my Hipster compatriots.
