No Longer the Hipster-iest City in America

The hipster epidemic is going to be a massive embarrassment to people 20 years down the road - imagine pictures of disco-era people, but even though the crappy clothes are gone and the hair is washed, the tattoos remain.

N. Williams Avenue is like a whole district of people like Star-Burns, who should be treated like Star-Burns (and never, ever be called "Alex".)

Really? Seattle is like the recycled 10-year-old hipster leavings of Portland fed into a grinder and re-packaged. Shit is played!

FUCK YOU TRAVEL + LEISURE. NOW THE BEAVERTRON HORDES ARE GOING TO SHOW UP TO VENDETTA!!!

TIME TO GO PUT MORE "GANG" GRAFITTI AROUND IT TO SCARE ALL THE WHITIES AWAY>

I just have this sneaking suspicion we got trolled. Like, T + L trolled us in some meta, old-media-meets-new-media sort of way.

Also, Seattle's culture is 30% pink slime.

Seattle will be destroyed by a three-way: an earthquake, tsunami, & Mount Rainier eruption, on March 17, 2013. Then we'll get our crown back. (Though ruins *are* kind of hip.)

Sorry, four-way. I forgot Godzilla.

I would not have chosen "best" as an adjective in reference to these clowns. @Clifton....they already do probably.

SO FUCKING TIRED OF THE WORD "HIPSTER"

IF ONLY LANGUAGE TRENDS MOVED AS QUICKLY AS MUSIC AND CLOTHING TRENDS

FOR FUCK'S SAKE

Still a hopelessly vague and meaningless term thrown around by people who like to think they're up on what's up and into what's in. *Retch*
Travel + Leisure writers are frauds and blithering idiots. Their articles about the greenest cities are embarrassing, throwing around catchphrases in place of any real knowledge of energy, pollution, and urban ecology and sustainability.
This is like People and Us magazine crap. Leave my town out of it, thanks.

Think about it - being voted the SECOND hipster-est city actually makes Portland THE hipsterest city.

Anyway, let's not get hipsterical about all this.

Have Portland and Seattle hipsters never heard of Williamsburg? Or do they just pretend it doesn't exist in order to feel better about themselves?
14
What's a "Williamsburg"?

DID YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE? Tight white pants high five!

"Hipster" doesn't even mean anything. It's a slur, like "douchebag" or "creepy old man". no one uses it to describe themselves. I'd love to see the Onion do a parody of these articles like "Top 5 cities for douchebags. That would be good.

Carrie and Fred should split the difference and make Centraliaia.

@D...I know, right? Humphrey, you are an ass clown. Lawyer pepper probably described some of you, which is why you doth protest too much. I will agree the word is overused. Douchebag would be more appropriate.
