For those wishing to become "hipsters" -- scrupulously dressed young adults with strong ideas about white-person music -- but uncertain how to begin,
BeVideo, which also provides iPhone guides to bankruptcy and yoga, has produced a "complete guide on how to be a hipster."
By lowering the hipster bar, this app promises to spread ironically worn cowboy shirts beyond their Mission District confines. Lacking sufficient record store jobs, they'll open stores of their own, creating a local economic renaissance, making available money for Deep V
s and Phils
According to the app's ad copy:
"Hipster, you'll learn all the basics of the hipster lifestyle, from how
to make your own skinny jeans, to how to cruise around on your hipster
1-speed, to how to perfect your hipster attitude."
The new app also includes a message board, allowing neophytes to "share
your favorite lifestyle tips with other aspiring hipsters."
