The sensibility of all hipsters have two axes: 1. "irony" 2. "alternative". This weekend I got hipster-lit, myspace-account broker, and quirky-NYM-darling Tao Lin to help me plot current events on The Hipster Matrix.
The Hipster-Sensibility "Sweet Spot" is in the ironic-alt quadrant, on the lower left. And you make a Z-trail that ends up in mainstream-sincerity. That's where a "hipster" is doing a lot of looking in the mirror, y'know, if they care or pay attention to items in that quadrant.
Yup, that feels about right. Corrections?
