I just thought it was a funny picture. You're good, JT. Nothing wrong with liking antiques.

Of course. Restoration Hardware is too mainstream for the hipster grannies.

Was it on here around the time of Record Store Day that we were discussing the fact that "hipsters" are scorned for enjoying collecting records/listening to them, and yet people who collect other things (antiques, comic books, etc) it seems to be no big deal?

There's a big difference in wanting an old, aesthetically pleasing piece of history (record player and otherwise) and wanting to listen to music on a 20 year old piece of shit technology just because nobody uses it anymore
And I don't even know what to say to this.

It was a perfectly valid point. Hipsters are only interested in their image. There is no reasonable reason to be listening to cassette tapes. It's only because nobody listens to them anymore, so they want to be different. I don't know how many hipsters you've got where you live, but Toronto is fucking plagued with them

Like I said, hipsters are scorned because they're as vapid as teeny boppers, only they'd like you to believe otherwise. Hipsterism is purely about conveying an image. You know what the difference is between someone who likes to collect records and a hipster? Or someone who collects antiques and a hipster? You can tell which is the hipster just by fucking looking at them. these things aren't inherently hipster, they've been assimilated by them.
Fuck I hate a hipster

I'm sorry, I was misunderstanding. It seemed like you weren't differentiating between people who buy records and hipsters. I withdraw.

Oh, no ma'am. You can certainly collect records and not be a hipster.
I'll know you aren't a hipster on account of your lack of suspenders and corn cob pipe

I also ironically like Eddie Money. I think that hurts me somewhere along the line.
