Hipsters in my opinion have ZERO taste in music and are very short on social skills spending their entire waking hours on their IPAD and listening to today's horrid music.

Lot of great conviences today that my generation never had {like this internet} but I thank the Maker everyday that I was raised on the great music of the 70s and 80s.

As far as Canada.....
Montreal.........Mile End & Plateau and Toronto...........Queen West and Kensington Market although, and correct me if I'm wrong, but Canada doesn't seem to be into the whole hipster thing as much as other countries. I would have to say urban Canada is more Bohemian than Hipster.

That's largely how I see it too. Those labeled 'hipsters' always come off more like cookie cutter clones imitating what they think will make them interesting. Strip away the veneer and you'll find out pretty fast if someone's a bore or has some thing fresh to contribute.

For me, 'hip' has more to do with how people think, create, behave, react, live, articulate, etc.
