I mean this in all seriousness: Between this and the "bronies" thing, can someone explain to me when being a hip, cool guy or whatever you'd call it became all about liking things that 5-8 year olds like, despite being an adult man in your 20s (later? earlier?)? I absolutely don't get it. I don't even get it enough to judge it. It's just incomprehensible.

Jeremy, do you have a sensible hair-cut?

This world is too grey. I am surprised anyone prefers reading about the rise and fall of stocks to pitting Squirtle against Charmander, frankly. That is the real mystery.

Yes. It's hot where I live, so long hair is like wearing a feverish cat on your head at all times.

Another reason I detest my ancient enemy: the sun.

Thank you for the amusing image!

I mean this in all seriousness: Between this and the "bronies" thing, can someone explain to me when being a hip, cool guy or whatever you'd call it became all about liking things that 5-8 year olds like, despite being an adult man in your 20s (later? earlier?)? I absolutely don't get it. I don't even get it enough to judge it. It's just incomprehensible.

Dzheremi,

Being interested in childish things has always been the honest purview of the nerd, the accidental oddball, and the geek.

However, with the advent of "Indie" crowds, it became cool to awkwardly dredge up even the most childish nostalgia in the name of "spontaneity" or romance; perhaps in an attempt to re-create some of the emotional pleasures of childhood to compensate for the drifting malaise of their adult lives (or just to impress chicks who feed off of that stuff).

When the latest wave of 21st century hipsterdom emerged, it swallowed up the Indie crowd and with it, the awkward dredging was assimilated.

Hmm. Alright. Just curious. It would appear I'm not too much older than some of you (I'll be 30 in ~2 months), but I must've missed this development. But I also don't like/know indie music, so if it's something that happened specifically to those people then I guess it makes sense I don't get it. Have fun attracting self-consciously 'quirky' girls, I guess. Cheesy

That's probably the best explanation, yep.

Thanks! Hopefully not too self-conscious (unless she's Zoey Deschanel), but I'm workin on it!

That I fear is a somewhat accurate however benign analysis. The more precise critique is more terrible.

I would suggest Wes Anderson's horrifying film Moonrise Kingdom as the distillation par excellence of the move toward "sincerity" as the critical text of this cultural tendency, which is not just limited to hipsterism and its bastard offspring like bronies.

Jeremy, in short, you should fear Starlight Sparkle more than any Islamist.
