I'm right handed, but I use my left hand for a lot of normal right-hand stuff because I have tendonitis in my right hand.

OH,

          you mean like YOU - who just got into STRYPER, WINGER & KYX in the last few years because I turned you onto them?!

ALSO;

          -don't mess with the metalheads cuz they're like fucking librarians of guitar and you CANNOT WIN!!

Here's a question for you; in what way am I definitely NOT a hipster? If I was sitting at the Nest and someone looked at me and decided I was a hipster, what would make me not a hipster?

The horrible beating you would deliver.

Except that... as hip as it is to hate on hipsters... "Hipster" is pretty much just a term that describes young urban people. It's nothing more than monkeys being monkeys; "THEY are hipsters; WE are better than them".

90% of the people here are indistinguishable from "hipsters" from an outside perspective. Since "Hipsters" are almost ALWAYS defined by an outside perspective, that makes the majority of us "hipsters".

When I was first introduced to this idea about two months ago, it pissed me the fuck off. Why? Because I'm not a fucking hipster... right? I mean... I'm not... really... oh wait. Who defines "hipster"? Who decides who is a hipster? Hipsters don't consider themselves hipsters. Hipsters HATE hipsters and would argue bitterly against being labeled a hipster. So... who decides who is a hipster? Who even knows what a hipster is? Lots of people don't know what a hipster is, and couldn't point out a hipster in a crowd. They don't hate hipsters. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that those people are definitely NOT hipsters.

Also, hurdy-gurdies are fucking awesome. I don't care WHY likes them; they're just fucking rad.

GREAT POINTS,

          ech! i did think that i went obviously out of my way to list bands which are by only the furthest stretch of the imagination, metal. or even music. but i think we can rest confidently on the fact that NIGEL, goddess that she is, knows absolutely nothing about metal music.

YES

          at the torch, with earthbound matter, she will shame your ass

HOWEVER

          the closest her itunes comes to metal music is a duo of emo guys who cover the 'misfits' as if it were 'erasure'. it kinda rules.

This is not technically true, but it's close enough to the truth.

I assume that you're just trying to get peoples' goats, because THAT statement is just patently ridiculous. You may just not know any real metalheads.

"Real metalheads" who discovered metal after 1990??? That's like being a "real punk" who discovered punk rock after 1990.

Pretty much all hipsters do is A. deny being hipsters, and B. make fun of people they think are hipsters. That, and play the "realer than you" game.

And love hurdy-gurdies.

Self contradictory. Hipsters assimilate Metal culture for their own ironic and retro purposes.
Metalheads have a sense of trveness, and an unassuageable instinct to destroy the hipster for said cultural assimilation.

Behold the use of Judas Priest iconography for Weezer. It is blasphemy of the worst type. The infidels and heretics must be purged.

An un-ironic Metalhead

Um.

Pretty much EVERYONE who was a metalhead after 1990 is a hipster.

If other people see you as a hipster, you are one. No hipster EVER self-identifies as a hipster!
I believe you might be the only one who has ever suggested that, lol.

Oh, by no means. It was a new concept to me until a few weeks ago. But since it was brought to my attention, I've observed that it's true.

Speaking of hipsters, one of the bars by my house now has PBR on tap.

I didn't even know it CAME that way! The only benefit to PBR is that it's cheap. If it's on tap it better be like $.75/pint.

I think that burden of proof is on those arguing that pot is good for babies.

Nobody is. Someone just posted some statistics refuting the knee-jerk assumption that pot must be bad for them.

If you want to claim that smoking pot during pregnancy is bad OR good, you will need to come up with some kind of evidence. Otherwise, you're just blowing smoke out your ass and would be better off saying nothing at all.
