Well see here now. I understand hipsters, sorta, cause in one or two senses, I am one. Especially when it comes to music. Now I have never understood the whole "Mainstream = shit" Theory until recently. See, dubstep was a lovely little underground genre, completely untouched sa pamamagitan ng the outside world. Then Skrillex came along and turned the whole thing to shit.
But some hipsters are just plain snobs... But yeah, things that go mainstream usually turn to shit. Like pizza! hundreds of years nakaraan it was a lovely dish, and me being an Italian, I know all about that. People started to experiment sa pamamagitan ng putting different cured meats and different herbs, but nothing to drastic. You kno, just keepin it pure. Then big ol' America came along and ruined it forever.
Now tourists from all over the world will be coming to Italy and expecting pizza to have cheese oozing out of places it should not be oozing.
I understand why they are the way they are, especially when it comes to music. Usually when a music artist becomes very mainstream, the quality drops. The majority of the public likes it, but to the original fans, it's just not the same and it's nothing compared to their original work.
