Re: Does It Get Better???

I always (wrongly) imagine fans thus:

TOS - comic book guys and dads
TNG - earnest book types
DS9 - hipsters
VOY - fangirls

Not quite sure about ENT yet

Awww.. this is adorable. And so much more complimentary than my own imaginings!

TOS - anal luddites
TNG - anal pompous luddites
DS9 - snobs
VOY - fangirls fuck yeah!
ENT - enlightened folk

btw I know genuine 100% hipsters who have vintage TOS lunch boxes on display in their houses. They haven't watched Star Trek in years if ever and they do not deserve these lunch boxes. It's disgusting.

Re: Does It Get Better???

Then it's your duty as a dedicated fangirl to liberate those lunch-boxes Entrapment-Style.

Remember, it comes down to you or being pinched by the 5-0, destroy the evidence rather than let it fall back into ungrateful hipster hands.

Re: Does It Get Better???

Oh I've fantasized about this. I'm thinking I could replace the lunchboxes with modern day Doctor Who ones and they wouldn't even notice.

I've tried gushing over the lunchboxes but to no avail. Now if someone gushes over something I have I just give it to them, but it seems this is not the hipster way. So, theft.

Exhaust all channels of diplomacy first.

You need to high ball them, so that they think that when you only ask for their lunch boxes, it seems reasonable.

"How much for the little girl? How much for the women? Your women. I want to buy your women. The little girl, your daughters... sell them to me. Sell me your children! "

Okay I will try and extort their vinyl collections off them first. Then, after they've recovered from the shock, I'll casually bring up the lunch boxes.

It's not like I need to keep these friendships. The music is terrible.

These days they use cellphones in a bowl for key-parties.

So if you want to avoid sleeping with a hipster you make sure you pick up the glammest cell phone out of the bowl, the one that looks the least like a Mac byproduct.

Re: Does It Get Better???

Phill Hartman Joke from News radio.

"In the 70s we would have these things called Key parties. We'd all put our keys into a big bowl and then shuffle them up and then we'd all take turns picking out someone elses keys from the bowl and then drive their car home for the night."

...

Australian hipsters?

I saw Slide (awful, awful children, they made the Skins kids like a church youth group.) last year but it just doesn't seem like Australians could be so inactivated to allow themselves to fall so fallow of such a gross emotional caricature lusting after irony above all else...

"Regular people wear beanies because of the cold, hipsters wear beanies because of Coldplay."

Well.. this is Melbourne. Wannabe Europe.

Out in Waggadoonagallaratta you'd have better luck being irony free.

Isn't that were they filmed "The Castle"?

Re: Does It Get Better???

He was so so so so terrible in the Melbourne comedy show he got his start in. Or perhaps it was the show that was so terrible.

It's Bana, with a silent "l".

Success! Glad I never got on that iPhone bandwagon. I had an Android before it was cool
