Το κομμάτι «Hipster της σειράς» της Sissi Rada δεν είναι καινούριο. Το ανακάλυψα τυχαία πριν λίγες μέρες. Έχει πλάκα γιατί σφάζει με το βαμβάκι τις υπερβολές όσων προσπαθούν να ακολουθήσουν ασθμαίνοντας την κουλτούρα των hipsters.  Δεν είναι επίθεση εναντίον των hipsters. Περισσότερο θέλει να πει, τουλάχιστον όπως το αντιλαμβάνομαι εγώ, «Παιδιά χαλαρώστε και πείτε την αλήθεια στον εαυτό σας για το τι σας αρέσει και τι όχι. Όχι πίεση. Οι μουσικές, τα βιβλία, το σινεμά είναι για να περνάμε καλά και όχι για να πουλάμε μούρη». Και οι στίχοι στα αγγλικά όπως θα άρεσαν στους hipsters!

 

 

 

 

 

Hipster generic

Your hair sucks
Slavish hair parting
Change your shoes
Even if they don’t stink.
Don’t talk to me about music and books
I know your type, Lia!
You got a magazine column
but it isn’t for you.
You say you’re poor but sexy
But i get images of you burping.
(oops…looser…!)


I hope your mum give you cash
to buy all that crap.
Discount card for American Apparel
Dissertation on Colin Farrell
No more black frame glasses!
No more granny cardigans.
I’ll throw up at once.
You’re just a Hipster Generic

Your clothes reek of mothballs
They got holes, enjoy strychnine.
You do some free camping, but with wifi.
Your girlfriend’s tits are flat and your friends also have awful hair.


Look, i know your kind
You’re a victim, wake up
Corduroys are passe!
Bow-ties : big lies
A moustache?
Everyone’s got one, don’t you mind?
You’re a hipster generic.


You read Wire in the metro.
And Esquire in the toilet.
You watch cult splatter classics
but only the low-budget ones
You’re a member of a Twin Peaks fan club
(but don’t tell ‘em you fell asleep)
You declare a connoiseur of Japanese porn,
though in sex you don’t even do preliminaries
Only missionary - and even that is dull.
Don’t talk to me about Jarmusch!
I’m gonna eat my insides!
I’m bored to death!
Johnny Depp is total shit.
Especially when he’s a pirate
in that stupid film.
Ok, you admit it, that wasn’t a good one.
Open your eyes!
Take off the glasses!
Your favourite city is Berlin
Look! Your grandma is wearing a hoopskirt!


At cafes you hug your MacBook
Quickly peak at your blog.
But actually you’re really lonely.
Trousers too tight, what strain!
You also make some music? What rubbish!
Harmony 1st-6th, 1st-6th
Don’t go on, i get cold sores!


Look, i know your kind
You’re a victim, wake up
Corduroys are passe!
Bow-ties : big lies
A moustache?
Everyone’s got one, don’t you mind?
You’re a hipster generic


Basically… i’m not sure what is your issue…
That you confuse essence with style or that you simply have a bad taste?
Or rather that you’re not truthful?
Admit it!
You slept during Rashomon and when you were little you bought a Kelly Family record.
Also, you cried when you watched Titanic and you only remember the name Proust cos it’s
an anagram of “prouts” (note: “prouts” in Greek is a sweet-childish way of calling a fart)


Maybe… you could have been much more likable… if you were silent…


Want some lip gloss?
