Best Hipster Infighting (2008)

L TRAIN IPOD WARS

A few months ago, The Brooklyn Rail ran a piece on the L TRAIN IPOD WARS. These showdowns happen when you're approached by someone—perhaps a girl with bangs—flashing her iPod display screen and demanding to see yours. If she's playing Eggs while you're blasting the Bravery, she walks away the victor with her precious cred intact. Hipsters be warned: If this keeps up, you'll need to groom your playlists, too.
