Hipsters... EEEEEWWWW!!!

So, I think that you can see what my blog is going to be about this time.

You know, I can actually put up with the hipsters themselves. What I can't stand are the actions that they choose. I can handle the weird colored shoes, the skin-tight jeans, the obscure band t-shirts, the fake glasses that they don't need, their straightened hair, the weird colored hats that they wear, the fact they listen to shitty music, and even the stupid obscure movies that they enjoy watching. Whatever. I could care less. It's their choice.

I just don't like the hipsters who like to put different spins on things that don't need to be messed with. You know what I mean. I am talking about those hipsters who like to take something classic and decent and try to make it modern and hip. It has effected many different professions, but it has become most prevalent in the arts.

What I am most concerned with what they are doing to theatre. Why do they have to take things that are classic and change them around? Taking a classic play and twisting it around to make it modern and hip is wrong. I don't know why they do the things they do. I think the real reason is because they want to try and make a name for themselves, but they feel as though the only way to do so is to try and put different spins on classics. I hate when people try to put their own spin on things. It happens a lot with Shakespeare's works when directors think that since it is old, no one is going to understand it. They don't realize that if they change anything, then it is going to just get more confusing for people and they will just start asking questions about it, and they will walk away pissed off. That is what most hipsters don't realize. It's fine to be a creative artist, but when you change things too much, then you are just going to piss a lot of people off.

That's really all I have to say. I think hipsters need to stop messing around with things. You should just stick to being the weirdos that you are. You will make the world so much happier.


  1. You took part( a big part, and a wonderfully acted part) in an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet that not only took place in a different time period, but also in Ireland…..

  2. Yes you are right. I did take this role. I didn't take it because I was interested in the concept. In all honesty, I didn't think that the concept really helped with the play at all. I took the role because 1.) The director was a friend of mine, and 2.) I'm not going to turn down a LEAD in the show. I saw it as an excellent acting opportunity and challenge. That is why I took the role. I would have taken the role even if there was no set or costumes. I would have done it naked if I had to. The concept had nothing to do with why I accepted the role.
