Hipsters can get angry?
Nothing is more trite than a self-proclaimed anti-hipster. The word "hipster" is a meaningless, catch-all term that people of color use for young whites who move into their neighborhood, that cranky Gen X-ers (of which I am one) use for Millenials who follow their own sense of fashion, for poor kids to use for kids who have more money than them, and for conformists to use for those who dare to have different priorities. When I hear someone sneer at hipsters, it always says more about the sneer-er than the sneer-ee.
What are you, Willibald, that puts you in the category of people who don't deserve to have their money stolen? What do you spend your money on, if not records, that makes your choices so much better? What word would these hipsters use to describe your bitter ass?
