Two twentysomethings going on a trip to Portland for the first week of September. We’ve got some tickets to MusicFest NW, this guide to biking to microbreweries, and a sweet AirBnB apartment in the Pearl District. I definitely want to check out Stumptown, Powell’s Books, Voodoo Donuts, and Pok Pok but I’d love to hear about some of the places/activities/neat things that people love that might not be so obvious.

I've been to both these cities before, so this time I want to explore some local fave places and grok the resident hipster vibe. Please point me in the direction of the Dolores Park of Portland/Austin. [more inside]
Why has there been no new youth subculture since 1998? 1960s had hippies, '70s had disco and punk, '80s had hip hop and goth, '90s had grunge. And yet kids and twenty-somthings have been wearing trucker caps and ironic sunglasses for 15 years now. What happened?

Can anyone recommend a good, online, illustrated guide to various subcultures and clothing styles? [more inside]
Help me find some tshirts from a music video. Barring that, I'm going to need a simple costume that will pass hipster muster. [more inside]
Does anyone know of any cool small independent artist run centers in Paris, France? Searching "Paris" and anything to do with art is overwhelming and not helping me find what I am looking for. [more inside]
Young people and body odor - did I miss the memo? [more inside]
What are some websites popular with Miami hipsters? Like the Miami equivalent of The Stranger in Seattle or The Village Voice in NYC. Has to be a website or some other online resource, though.
Recommend some stuff for me in Silverlake (Los Angeles) [more inside]
Why do people these days ride BMX-style bikes with the seat as low as possible? [more inside]
MoleskineFilter: Can anyone recommend a non-gel ink, commercially available pen to use with my pocket Moleskine? [more inside]
Usually I'm pretty "hep" to the "lingo" you kids use, but will someone tell this clueless geezer the provenance of "Oh, snap!"? (sorry, that's it, no more inside)
