I won't deny it. Things started spiraling rapidly downhill the moment I started compiling mixtapes of my favorite non-hip hop songs released this year. Vampire Weekend? Santogold? Hercules & The Love Affair? I kind of wanted to kick my own ass or at the very least give myself a wedgie. Of course, music is music and it's stupid to let one's natural "hater" inclinations stop them from enjoying something good, regardless of how stupid their haircuts and/or facial hair are (save for arguably Man Man). Still, there's something deeply troubling in my nagging suspicion that these muxtapes were compiled by someone in a Fruity Loops hoodie, a pair of $2 neon green sunglasses and a mustache lustrous enough to be the toast of Echo Park.

So snipe away in the comments section if you will. You can even call me that increasingly meaningless* perjorative, "hipster." All I can really say in my anti-hipster defense is that I still eat hamburgers at In-N-Out, can dunk a basketball and am hitting .368 with a .680 slugging percentage in my Saturday hardball Baseball league (Go Buzz). Now if you'll excuse me it's time to put on a headband and cut my hair in fashionable yet unflattering manner. Good day.

* The word "hipster," of course, only being meaningless when used to potentially describe me.
