Hipster Rant

Hipster Rant

A Poem by Kayleen

watch the video spoken version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-icV4j8DeMg

HELLO AMERICA,
HELLO YOU MINDLESS F***S,
HELLO YOU HIPSTERS,
YOU SCENESTERS,
HIDING BEHIND THE ILLUSION OF INDIVIDUALITY,
THE FAUX REBELLION,
THE DESPERATE NEED TO BE SEEN,
IN THE SCENE,
BY THE SCENE,
DONT YOU REALIZE?
MANUFACTURED UNIQUENESS,
PURCHASED IDEOLOGIES,
CLOTHES HORSE FASHION,
YOU DARLINGS OF THE CORPRATE WORLD,
FAINING INTEREST IN THE UNDERGROUND,
SO PEOPLE THINK YOUR DEEP,
DOING ANYTHING TO FIT A CROWD,
TO FOOL YOURSELF,
TO THINK YOU STAND OUT,
WHEN YOU ARE ALL THE SAME,
WALKING MANNEQUINS,
FAUX REBELLION,
APATHETIC TO GAIN ATTENTION,
MANUFACTURED BRAIN,
DO YOU REALIZE YOUR ALL THE SAME?

So, in my head, as I'm reading this, you're shouting into a microphone, changing hats as you describe this world of standing out to fit in. I feel the same! When they're trying so hard to be an individual, yet they look like everyone else. I felt like this at Warp Tour one year. I was seriously the only one who looked "different" because I wasn't wearing something purchased from Hot Topic. :) Nice rant!

I F*****G LOVE THIS. Totally agree with the message, too many people feel the need to be "different" by (ironically) conforming to a different group that supposedly values individualism

Pretty good. I like what you have to say, its direct powerful and doesn't waste time getting into the art of it, staying more literal.

Powerful, but not beautiful. I understand your message and why you chose to do so, but it's not beautiful. You may not want it to e, but that's what I think!

I am from the UK but there still are scene kids there who think they're all that. Nice observation. It's more about being in an exclusive group than being cool. All the same? I think not.

I agree with Michael, it is indeed very ideological.
I liked it, the irony in it is very striking.

Very nice socialized ideological poem focused upon the masses
of civilization with a flare of contingency, I really liked this
amazing ranting style.

ohh this was nice..i just know exactly what you mean,to show off that you are different..in any way possible..its exactly the opposite in this land here faraway..we never care about appearance..
even to disgusting degree,ha ha..i am exactly like this,the last thing i think of is the looks..we go deep to the core..we look whats inside..what really maters is the heart and real inside of someone..
i even thought and was told many times that what looks on the outside is what maters really
but i never cared..i just did not understand even what they mean..
i really loved this..this writing is different in a way,i just loved it
lovely write
