CULTURA SUBTERRANEA. Hipsters Los hipsters son una subcultura de mujeres y hombres que están típicamente entre los 20 y 30 años y se caracterizan por tener un pensamiento independiente, se consideran contra la cultura normal, progresivos con la política y aprecian el arte, la buena música, la inteligencia, la creatividad y el cine independiente.

Is how something that by its very nature was anti-commercial became commercialized. One thing that particularly struck me about Hype! Was the grunge scene's intense resentment against the greater culture for appropriating the look and style elements of their subculture. Anti-fashion became the fashion. It lost all meaning. That feeling of resentment strikes a chord with me, because I notice that people who came of age in the 70s and 80s punk rock movement seem to universally hate “hipsters”. By "hipsters" I am not referring to the radical college kids, the animal rights activists or the anarchists in their mohawks and Black Flag shirts.

And I'm not talking about everyone who lives on the Eastside and shops at Wacko and eats Yuca tacos. Hipsters are the ones walking around Los Feliz and Silver Lake with two-toned pink and black hair. I look at the hipsters, and I think, “Well, I like that haircut. We had the Minutemen. Why the hipster must die - This week in New York - Time Out New York.

Did it die the day Wes Anderson proved too precious for his own good, or was it when Chlo Sevigny fellated Vincent Gallo onscreen? Did it vanish along with Kokie's, International Bar and Tonic? Or when McSweeney's moved shop to San Francisco and Bright Eyes signed a lease on the Lower East Side? Was it possible to be a hipster once a band that played Northsix one night was heard the next day on NPR's Weekend Edition? Yes, the assassins of cool still walk our streets: Any night of the week finds the East Village, the Lower East Side and Williamsburg teeming with youth—a pageant of the bohemian undead.

"I wish I'd thought of this phrase, but we call the Lower East Side 'the last real neighborhood in New York,'" Desjadon, an amiable fellow and a patron of LES bars, told me when I called him up.

Check it out: HOTELS A hotel I really wanted to stay in was the Hotel Banys Oriental. It’s moderately priced, and is very sleek and modern, but unfortunately it was all booked up by the time I got around to securing a room. COOL NEIGHBORHOOD I especially liked the El Raval area of Barcelona, which is the southwest side of La Rambla. Cool hip restaurants are scattered throughout the area and it’s the “ethnic” area of Barcelona–but a very up-and-coming neighborhood.
