Hipster Bingo

Hipster Bingo; funny, the ironic trucker caps don't seem to have made it down to Melbourne yet.

Also, Australian hipsters seem to be a bit more low-tech than the American variety. While the hipsterati of New York and San Francisco have photoblogs and futurephones, many Australian hipsters draw the line at using Hotmail and are more likely to snap pictures with a Lomo than a digital camera (let alone a futurephone).

Remind me to wear my CAT cap the next time I'm down in Melbourne. That and the over-30 bit... eek.

Someone should ironically appropriate the rugby shirt.

I don't think hoodies should be in there, several subcultural groups wear them (granted they are usually different styles - i don't think my propagandhi one would fit in as hipster material, it's too political and such a downer).

Depends what sort of rugby shirt; the generic Canterbury ugly shirts, or the licensed NRL/Super 12 team ones? I don't think the latter variety can be ironified, except maybe the guernsey from the defunct NSWRFL Newtown Bluebags/Jets.

The real irony is that mobile phone cameras all suck! (With probably a few Japan-only exceptions.)
