Will You Survive The Hipster Apocalypse?

   0
Remember the days when you and a couple of friends knew about a certain game or band? Remember how you felt? It was like you knew a secret no one else knew; and if that secret was ever let out to the public then the value of the secret would just become another norm with no special purpose to hold on to. Remember when the internet was just starting up? This whole nostalgia for the early nineties is not a superiority complex, but one of authenticity. What I miss is our authentic geek culture that was helped and destroyed by the internet. The internet, my lovely reader, is why geeks no longer exist.

Now, I donít want to be hypocritical, so I will admit that the internet can be used for good, and for the most part it is. But, it seems that the internet has a dark side, a side full of information on our finger tips, a side that allows anyone in, a side devoted to equality, a side full of, as Holden Caulfield would say, phonies. These phonies are the hipsters of our generation.

A Small Thank You

I started a blog at this very site to let some of my feelings out. In some way Destructoid was therapy for me. I write about everything from my mother, past relationships, financial situations, friends, hipsters, school, etc. This is done not for sympathy, but as a way to expresses myself. My financial situation is a mess and I have no idea how Iím going to make a living, but writing and reading some of the response from great users have bought a wealth of positiveness to my life; It really doesnít have to be anything big, but a simple comment of appreciation is enough to fill my heart with joy. Itís strange writing this, but joining this community has been the best thing I've ever done, well, second best thing; getting laid is pretty cool. What Iím trying to say here is thank you. Thank you for this awesome community. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for being awesome.

A big thanks goes to falsenipple for the header!
