When a hipster sees someone else grooving on the thing they love, their reaction is to say “Oh, crap, now the wrong people like the thing I love.” When a geek sees someone else grooving on the thing they love, their reaction is to say “ZOMG YOU LOVE WHAT I LOVE COME WITH ME AND LET US LOVE IT TOGETHER.”  - John Scalzi


... and this is why I don't much take a shine to people who only like things you've never heard of.

lol! I must be a hipster then. There is this really silly side to me that gets annoyed with people that start doing what I am doing/using/what have you when it suddenly because trendy. But I guess it's more like, I dislike it when a person *only* starts liking something when it's the thing to do at the time. Or, maybe it's that I just don't like sheeple?

lol, well, I think it's just as bad to like something only because everyone likes it as it is to like something obscure just because NO one likes it. :D

Same here. I dislike it when my favorite things get taken over people who like it only because it is trendy. :-/

"This coffee shop is SO OVER."
Hah, yes, this is SO Portlandia (watch the particular skit here: http://www.hulu.com/watch/210886#s-p9-sr-i0).

This quote is fantastic.

Indeed it must. I wonder if the feeling of superiority makes up for the loneliness? ;)

YES. Kind of like what John Green said recently about nerdhood/geekhood being largely about the unabashed enjoyment of stuff. (At least I think it was John Green...)
