isn't image illusion? aren't hipster or punk or any other illusions too?

when's the next update?

Hey Ken,
As I understand the Adbusters article, the Hipster scene differs from movements such as Punk in at least one fundamental way. While the Hipster scene appears to have no cause to speak of and simply appropriates the fashions of preceding subcultures, Punk was a movement with an academic and ideological lineage going as far back as the Situationists, a group that I think you would find quite interesting.

I'm not trying to over-romanticize Punk, but to my mind, there was a lot more substance there.

I'm still finishing the "I Shop Therefore I Am" post, which I initially posted incomplete. That'll be the next update I think.
