First, hipsters were going to spell the end of western civilization. And, now, western civilization is going to spell the end of hipsters. In the latest edition of NOW, Joshua Errett (Torontoist’s co-founder, for what it’s worth) argues that hipsters are so totally over, thanks in no small part to a certain Barack Obama.
