Like there's any chance you'll convince a mother that an admitted online hipster is cooler than their own child.

I'm not trying to convince you, believe me.

It's kind of telling that you would read that and think of your kid. I don't hate college kids in general, just the douchey entitled ones.

Actually it struck me because the description was so far off from my kid. He drives a 10 year old Malibu (that he rolled) and is currently packing up his room with his girlfriend while listening to CCR on 8 track(!)

Whatever, we all get annoyed. Your version is no worse or better than any other. Sorry about the hipster crack.

Is he listening on an 8 track ironically?

I don't think we have the time necessary to debate this.

So I'm lightyears late on this but Live from New York - An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live is a fantastic book and should be read by absolutely everyone.

Its also the first "oral history" style book I've ever read and I've gotta say, I enjoy the style a lot. I love hearing people's true opinions in the interview form, particularly so that I can independently conclude that Janeane Garofalo is a cancerous bitch of the highest order.
08-04-2010 , 12:39 AM
She seems really ****y lately, and I used to tolerate/maybe even not dislike, her.


Not you poker mom, janeane garafalo. Tee hee.

Zero chance a college aged kid listening to an 8-track isn't a hipster.

What are the supposed advantages of 8-track? All I remember about them is that (a) you could potentially have a break right in the middle of a song, and (b) the last two we listened to in our sweet 86 Buick Regal were Chicago XIII and Seals & Crofts' Diamond Girl.

He may just belong in this thread:

When I used to routinely hit up thrift shops and flea markets for eBay there were always tonnes of 8-track tapes available for nothing.

Hey, he could also be a nerd. I have a hs aged cousin who has a laser disc collection, zero percent hipster, 100 percent nerd, I assume the same could be true of 8-tracks. The music aspect of it does lend itself more to the hipster side of the spectrum, I would think though.

I don't think we can grow hipsters on Wisconsin farms, but I suppose I could be wrong.

The great thing about 8-tracks, when they first came out, was that they were the only way you could play music in your car that wasn't on the radio and it was a 'wowzer!' technology to us kids. Of course there'd be breaks right in the middle of songs but that was something that had to be put up w/. Then came cassettes, much better.

I guess a kid listening to 8-tracks now is trying to be retro. Tie-dyed shirts and bell bottom jeans to follow. Just hope he doesn't come up w/ an 'Earth Mother' gf.

The ending would have been better if he turned around and plowed into the group of them at 70mph.

There's apparently an oral history of ESPN coming out that may dish some serious dirt on all the sex/harassment going on in Bristol.

It's pretty obviously not a universal hatred of college age kids so much as a complaint about a prominent piece of college culture at large universities. Having recently lived in an undergrad neighborhood as a non-undergrad myself, I think ATAT's post is a pretty accurate picture of life among the bros. I think if you saw it on a day to day basis, you probably wouldn't have great feelings about it either.

19-yr-old douches get old very quick. Quality rant. I laughed 5 seconds.
