    I was in line behind a very smelly hipster today at the store so I though I would repost this.

    This song is dedicated to my friend Dubi, because of his rants about the Pearl district Hipsters.

    Sung to the tune of Jimmy Buffets "Margaritaville"



    Enjoyin' the sponge cake
    As I idly get baked
    My dirty hair, is covered with oil
    Drinking a six pack
    On my second cig pack
    Smell that Ramen it's beginnin' to boil

    (Chorus)
    Wastin away again in Dirty Hipsterville
    Searching for why my life, is in default
    I like to claim that it's the economy to blame
    But I know, that it's George Bush's fault

    I don't know the reason
    I stayed "WEIRD" all season
    Nothin' to show but half my body tattoo'd
    But they improve beauty
    Cause I'm not a cutie
    But how will they look when I'm 62?

    (Chorus)
    Wastin away again in Dirty Hipsterville
    Searching for why my life is in default
    I like to claim that it's the economy to blame
    But I know, that it's George Bush's fault

    I rolled up my last pot
    Smoked up some crack rock
    No money for cigs, so I cruised on back home
    But, I've got Oregon Trail Card splendor
    And soon it will render
    That legal tender that helps me hang on

    (Chorus)
    Wastin away again in Dirty Hipsterville
    Searching for why my life is in default
    I like to claim that it's the economy to blame
    But I know, it's George Bush's fault

    (Chorus)
    Yes and some people claim that it's the economy to blame
    But I know, that it's George Bush's fault

    I am not sure which I like less...hipsters or aging hippies. I just know when either of them cross slowly/lazily in front of my car as I try to turn right on Hawthorne that I have a hard time not letting my foot slip off the brake and onto the gas.

    Clever, Trlsmn.

    I guess it depends on where you choose to spend your time. I don't cruise Hawthorne as much as PP, but I do travel around Portland daily for business. Portland is kinda weird. I guess they want to be weird, that's what makes Portland unique...... I guess. Or it's kinda gross if you have to hang out with smelly hipsters. Don't forget their cousin, the not so elusive Naked Cyclist.

    I don't know what I hate more. Hipsters or people who bubblegum constantly about hipsters

    Given the choice of listening to someone complain about hipsters and the nauseating experience today of the smell of Patchouli failing to mask strong body odor and unwash rear end, I'll listen to the complaints and make a song. Soap should not be a diverse lifestyle choice.

    About 25 years ago I spilled a bottle of Patchouli in my briefcase. It's a nice, locking briefcase.

    Anyhoo, I have my own kid and neighborhood kids around and a wife who isn't super into guns. As a consequence, I have a pretty complex method of securing them that involves getting past multiple locks in order to fire any single gun. Part of that system is that I keep cylinders to my SA revolvers in that briefcase. It also means that, for the first 15 minutes or so, the cylinder retains some of the latent qualities of the briefcase.

    If ever you want to see a facial expression that perfectly epitomizes cognitive dissonance, with the furrowed brow and cocked head, simply hand someone a revolver that smells like Patchouli.

    A couple of years ago, the wife and I went to see a movie at the Century Crossroads theater. A couple of minutes after we sat down a couple of old hippy women sat down about 6 seats away from us. The patchouli smell was so strong we ended up leaving the theater.

    We have a Jerry Garcia wannabe that lives down here at the little town on the coast I live close to that I swear never bathes or shaves. When this fella gets out of his car to head in to the store, if I cant step it up and beat him to the counter, I'll take an extra ten minutes BSing outside about whatever various hunting subject, with just about anybody but him to let the air clear first and avoid that stench! I can appreciate the tune Trlsmn.

    Spent 3 hours on the PSU campus today while my daughter had a softball clinic. I dont think UofO has much over PSU on this count.
    Walking in some areas thick with students it smelled much like a barnyard. And I am not exagerating.

    wow... i don't ever experience portland people, just see them from a distance sometimes if i have to go to portland. i had no idea hipsters stink... i figured that was just a hippy thing, with not bathing and not wearing deodorant and so forth. so do hipsters not bathe, or do they simply eschew modern chemicals?

    Using deodorant is just boosh-wah consumerist conformism. Better to save your money for big ugly tattoos to show the world how uniquely conformist you are to being expressively unique. Besides, without deodorant dogs won't sniff your crotch.......................elsullo
