How I spent the first day of the rest of my life

Is there anything that can be done on the AVClub about the whole "what a useless list - you guys are nothing but a bunch of hipsters" thing?

And by the way, how did "hipsters" become such a charged word? Is there something wrong with describing somebody as "hip?" I'll use the same example I used on Cinemasters a while ago... a guy I've known since high school works at a record store and as a DJ. He goes to clubs, parties, and concerts probably 50 times more often than I do. He was in a locally-popular band. This guy is objectively more hip than I am; why can't I call him a "hipster" without it sounding like an insult?
