HIPSTER: I love the idea of the word "hipster." I've never met anyone who's wanted to be called a "hipster." In the late '90s when I was getting involved in the music scene, "scenester" faded into "hipster." "Scenester" seemed to have such negative connotations. But I think people should embrace what they're into. If anyone says I make "hipster" music that's fine, but I just make stuff out of pop. I wish people would get "hipster" tattoos and appropriate it back in a positive way. I don't like making fun of people for any music, art or style interest.
