You're invited out to dinner with a friend at the home of this person, about whom your friend is reluctant to say too much; his name will be Django or Salinger or Tarquin or something along those lines; there will be a heavy duty check shirt, big beard and unneeded eccentric spectacles - the first clues as to what you're in for.

The right tech-head at the table is key to contributing to the view that anything is possible while viewing the perspective through the prism of client desires and commercial imperatives.

A tug at my trouser leg brought me back into the room. I looked down to find an eighteen month old offering me a small fistful of peanut butter and, for the first time since I gave up nutty spreads as a five year old, I accepted it.

Getting Hip To The (Dad) Game. UK Says No To 'Papa'.

Dan Flanagan | Posted 07.12.2016 | UK Parents
Dan Flanagan

To start 'claiming back' words just to mark yourself out as different, or fashionable strikes me as ridiculous. Being a dad isn't about being fashionable. Dapper yes, fashionable, no. Being a good dad has never been out of fashion.

I often spend time in the two main 'hipster' neigbourhoods in Copenhagen. To be clear I am not totally against some of the changes to these places but I'd like to see it slow down (but that is a more serious debate for another day, probably on my blog).

Hipster Replacement

Lynne Parker

In the last few weeks I've been to Hoxton, at least twice, bought trainers and a lightweight high-performance puffa jacket, adjudicated two short film awards and harvested enough menopausal facial hair to constitute the makings of a fine beard. Do I qualify as a 'hipster'? In fact, what is a 'hipster'?

Hipsters, Property Developers and Gimmick-Owners Beware: The Fightback Against Gentrification Has Barely Begun

Jon Bigger | Posted 04.10.2016 | UK
Jon Bigger

Gentrification is not simply about gimmicky shops and cafes. It's about anger at being excluded on grounds of wealth. It's about the people being forced to move and the ones valiantly trying to stay put despite the pressure to leave. It's about the inclusive social and communal spaces that have gone, not the exclusive ones that have sprung up.

Hipsters Represent The Worst of Youth Culture

Chris Rooney | Posted 31.07.2016 | UK Lifestyle

Hipsters represent the worst of youth culture. They are shallow and vain with a tendency to mistake cultural tribalism for individuality. They mistake petulance for sophistication, arrogance for charm. You can pluck a bearded youth from a Dalston coffee shop and tell in a heartbeat who he is.

Never before has it been as easy or as cheap as it is to access music than it is today. Nevertheless, in a strange parallel to music becoming easier to source, vinyl sales are on the increase, with the first three months of 2015 seeing a 53% increase in sales from the first three months of 2014.

Putting the Sanctuary Back Into the Quiet Carriage

Chris Owen | Posted 27.05.2015 | UK Comedy
Chris Owen

Yes, I'm speaking out in public - although mainly because I'm too chicken to turn to my side and actually tell the three hipsters on my right to shut up, and enquiring whether they think the 'quiet please' signs have a hidden clause stating "unless you're wearing a beanie and trousers which finish mid-shin".
