Hipster-related comment of the week, courtesy of Aaron Mayfield-Sunshine:

hipsters cannot be 30 or 40 something. 32 is the max! after that you become a cool dad.



“Cool Kid” not “Hipster”

    Our first child is due 2 days before my 32nd birthday. So, uh, apparently.

    i waited till i was 38. what happened to me in the middle there? 6 years in stereotype limbo. explains some things….

  3. kiya says:

    This means i’ve got exactly 7 months left before i’m not longer a hipster?
    How can i become a “cool dad” without any children?

  4. zinzin says:

    you can borrow mine for an afternoon if you like. prefers organic fruit, listens to the ramones, likes to draw pictures. makes for a pleasant time….

    So does your kid actually have to be able to indicate you are a cool dad with words, or does a 6 month old’s giant giggling smile suffice?

  6. johnny0 says:

    zinzin, I like that idea — we can trick the aging hipsters into providing us cool dads with child care…

  7. johnny0 says:

    I am saddened by the lack of “cool dad” references in this story.


    Cool dads are the only way new hipsters get created. We are the future!
