Not bad...for hipster garabe.
William Burns
You just HAVE to find some way to inject stupid into everything you say. What does the word "hipster" mean to you? Anyone cooler than you?

Comeuppance
"hipsters" at some point went from a word "hip" people used to put down those imitating them to a word meaning "people younger than 30 that like different music."

Goethe and ernie
Calvin Harris isn't exactly a hipster, is he? He's the 21st century equivalent of Judge Jules or something. But you don't know who that is. Or who Calvin Harris is. Or what a hipster is. But I suppose that's ok because all three of the above are twats.

A human synth, that's kind of awesome though. Four stars? Why not.

I've met Judge Jules, dude, he is nothing like Judge Jules.

And Clark Harris defines ambiguously cross-genre disco that kids in polo shirts think is hip.

Goethe and ernie
Clark Harris?

Kids in polo shirts? Is Calvin Harris one of those acts that's "hip" in America because he's not American, like Bloc Party or something? I don't know. He's shit anyway.

Big Beef Burritos Supreme
I honestly have no idea what you're on about, other than you're replying to what I originally said. So, do you even know who Judge Jules is?

You know what, I don't care. Shut up.

FISTFULLofSOUL
He's a tosser.

Horning also proposed that the role of hipsters may be to "... appropriat[e] the new cultural capital forms, delivering them to mainstream media in a commercial form and stripping their inventors...of the power and the glory...". He argues that the "...problem with hipsters" is the "way in which they reduce the particularity of anything you might be curious about or invested in into the same dreary common denominator of how “cool” it is perceived to be", as "...just another signifier of personal identity." Furthermore, he argues that the "hipster is defined by a lack of authenticity, by a sense of lateness to the scene" or the way that they transform the situation into a "self-conscious scene, something others can scrutinize and exploit."

I like this one better:

Lorentzen argues that “hipsterism fetishizes the authentic” elements of all of the “fringe movements of the postwar era—Beat, hippie, punk, even grunge,” and draws on the “cultural stores of every unmelted ethnicity” and “gay style”, and then “regurgitates it with a winking inauthenticity” and a sense of irony. He claims that this group of “18-to-34-year-olds”, who are mostly white, “have defanged, skinned and consumed” all of these influences “into a repertoire of meaninglessness”.

Udderdude
I am thorougly dissapointed with the lack of excess conductive goop.
DerangedGoblin
I do not like Calvin Harris, but I was impressed by how well it actually worked, so I'm giving it four to kind of balance it out.
Sputum
That isn't a synthesizer. It's a human keyboard that triggers notes on a (software) synthesizer.

The facts that he doesn't actually know what a synthesizer is, and that he uses a Mac, leave me no choice but to put him in the hipster category.

Still a sort of interesting idea.
pastorofmuppets
Making music on a PC is harder than it needs to be, and when you factor in the required hardware and software, the price difference between platforms becomes a drop in the bucket.

Still, this guy is definitely a hipster, or whatever the eurotrash version of that is. He combined a Q-Chord with hot girls. It doesn't necessarily deserve the name "human synthesizer" but I can't really knock the idea. I wish the song itself wasn't terrible.

Triggerbaby
-1 star because the girls are still wearing stuff. THAT'S NOT ART!
