    One thought on “Dads Are the Original Hipsters”

    1. I'm not sure what I enjoyed more: the constant jab at modern era "hipsters" (a term I use incessantly) or the acknowledgement that dads (hey, that's me) just may have been trendsetters. This is a fast read, with each page an old photo of someone's dad doing thing that the "hipster" crowd has adopted as their own thing, along with a couple of paragraphs of humorous observation from Brad Getty.As a gift, I haven't quite determined if there was sarcastic intent from my daughter SamR. But the book's [...]

    2. This was a quick humorous book that I found on my sister's bookshelf when visiting her home. I was able to knock it out about 45 minutes and had a chuckle along the way. If I remember correctly, the retail price of this book was $12.95, but my sister was able to find it for a couple of dollars used somewhere. Personally, I would never pay full price for this book.After living abroad for almost seven years, I haven't had too much face to face contact with the hipster community, so my ire towards [...]

    3. Your dad was using before you and he has endless reviews to prove it This was a fun, quick, and light read. Full of nostalgic concepts, amusing photos, and little jabs at today's hipsters, this book is perfect for dads and children of ~80's.

    4. A funny and brilliant message that invades the hipster's psyche today. Getty throws in a good sense of humor and priceless old photos that depict the real hipsters of our world, our dads.I got this as a birthday present, and its safe to say it was a great gift.

    5. Really funny. Although, the dads remind me more of my cousins in the 70's and 80's. My dad was still calling them all hippies.

    6. This was fine. The snark was enjoyable, except for the couple of instances where they used the wrong "your" or "you're." Some great photos in here, though I wish that there had been a few more photobooth strips. (Of course I do.)

    7. HilariousThis is a super fun book that shows how awesome dads are and pokes fun at hipsters at the same time.

    8. So it's time for a mini review. A very mini review, because this is a very mini book, and it's really quite simple how I feel about it.It's funny, it's quirky, and it made me laugh on just about every page. The old photos fit perfectly, and the captions were on point. It's basically a book format of the popular blog dadsaretheoriginalhipster.tumb , made to honor our overlooked fathers and ( here's my favorite part ) to poke fun at the hipsters of today, who set a trend trying to not be trendy at [...]

    9. Full of super photographs of "your dad" from the 60's, 70's, and 80's, Brad Getty explores how today's hipsters are actually borrowing from the genius trend-setting nature of "our fathers."Knit HatsJortsBeardsBowtiesPeacoatsTubesocksand many more early tends set by fathers are shared here--in no particular order. Each element is then used to admonish today's hipsters with a catch phrase, "So, hipsters, next time. . ." or "So, hipsters, before. . ."There's a little bit of language and some adult [...]

    10. Funnier than I expected, and probably appeals to a broader audience than expected too. Definitely read it if you liked Stuff White People Like: A Definitive Guide to the Unique Taste of Millions - it's like that, but even better.Check out my full review over at: 2bitmonkey.wordpress/2013/

    11. My dad told me he had a book for me to read when I got to the house for Christmas. haha. The pictures were priceless and the text was pretty funny too. Dad would probably give it 5 stars if he had a . Very cute and probably would make a fun gift for christmas/father's day/birthday for a 70s/80s era kid to give their dad. (Most of the pictures seem to be from around these decades.)

    12. That was the longest 122 page book comprised mostly of pictures that I've ever read.Each page followed the same formula: "Your dad did/had (activity/style) before you did and he has the (effect of activity/style) to prove it.Chuck Norris and Most Interesting Man Alive cracks the whole way through, and unfunny cracks at that.Good for highlighting the awesome things our dads did when they were young (a lot of true things in this book), but talk about a broken record.

    13. this book is so fucking funny! omg I lol'ed many times! I did not read every single full description but the pics and captions themselves were enough to entertain me! I loved seeing all the vintage 70s-80s photos. as a child of the 70s-80s they brought back tons of memories of my childhood and just cracked me up. Anyone who is currently my age or teen/adult children of anyone of my age will enjoy and laugh at this book!

    14. Classic. LOVE the photographs, love the sentiment, and yes, it's all pretty much true. For those hipsters out there who think they're trendsettersuh, look back at bit at your dad's youth. You're not the first. :)This is a great glimpse into pop culture, history, tradition, family, and social interaction. Funny, fun, and a unique way to connect our ideas of who we are with where we come from. As I said, a classicr past, current, and future generations!

    15. Ok. I checked this out on a whim and because the front cover and title were catchy. I'm sure this might be a funny blog taken in small daily bites, but the format is so redundant when compiled in a book that it ruins the premise. Some of the pics are hilarious, but redundancy and foul-mouthed sections sort if ruined what could have been a funny homage to dads gone by.

    16. Of course my dad bought me this. I wish this wasn't based on a Tumblr, because it really suffers from every page being the same thing, except on a slightly different topic. The sentences are the same, the jokes are the same. However, I did enjoy the design of this book and some of the photos are absolutely hilarious. Definitely a joke gift book rather than anything to be actually read.

    17. I originally picked up this book because of the catchy title. There really isn't too much reading involved in this books, it's more funny photos from the 70s and 80s of dads that originated hipster looks and practices. I got through it in about 30 mins and it was actually really funny. I would recommend this one for a good laugh.

    18. This book is hilarious! I really enjoyed reading it, though it just took me a couple of minutes. There're short descriptions or stories to every gorgeous vintage photo. Oh my god, loved it. So many fun- and true facts, and almost all of it described my dad.

    19. I loved the photographs, but the writing was too condescending and extremely redundant. I'm definitely following the blog on which this book was based, though! The pictures were great.
