Anti-Hipster Movement Underway
Members of a growing group of so-called "anti-hipsters" met this week for their first convention in Dallas.
"We considered Austin, but really like the vibe of a big, corporate heavy city," Anti-Hipster Association (AHA) president Cheryl Barnes said. "They've got lots of great chain restaurants here that we can enjoy unironically."
Members of AHA strive to be "annoying like conventional hipsters, only in the complete opposite way," Barnes said, as she switched her Pandora station to a Green Day station. "I love these guys. American Idiot is really great."
AHA members take part in various activities and panels at their convention. Hank Sinke spoke at the panel titled "All The Great Stuff On Television". "We were talking about the Game of Thrones series when someone asked me if I'd read the books. Well, I told him in no uncertain terms that I don't have any books in my house. That put him in his place," Sinke said.
Convention goers met for a late night "Games and Beers" session, during which they played some UNO.
"These late night sessions are great, but tiring," said AHA member Raymond Garza. "I always feel like I ought to shave before going to bed just to avoid having too much facial hair."
The AHA convention continues today with panels including "Traditional Media Is Ok By Me!", "I Don't Get It: An Explanation of Irony", and "Bicycles: Who Needs Them When Our Cars Work Just Fine? (Answer: No One)."
"I'm not sure if this is a growing movement that represents a shift in social paradigms, or if it's just a bunch of dopes," said Dr. Evelyn Norman, University of Texas Sociology Professor. "But it seems like it's just a bunch of dopes."
This is parody, which, frankly, should be obvious.
