Beats? Hipsters? You Probably Haven’t Heard of It

Ginsberg, Kerouac, and Corso in the ’50s*

Has anyone noticed that hipsters these days are starting to look a lot like the Beat Generation (who also frequently used the word “hipster”, by the way)? I see a lot of comments about them dressing like slightly cooler “nerds,” but just look at these guys. Ginsberg’s glasses and sweater, Kerouac’s plaid shirt, Corso’s haircut. If you transported them forward in time 60 or so years, no one would notice.
