Carles is Dead: The End of an Era

As you know, legendary Hipster Runoff blog writer Carles passed away a few days ago. He was one of the greatest music blogger of our time, not because of his insights, not because of his lengthy prose, but because he made us lol.

And lol we did.

Now, numerous other blogs are trying to make us lol, but all they're really doing is ripping off Carles. We are now living in a post-Carles era of darkness. Now Hipster Runoff is all corporate and the hipster dream is over. It's like when all the hippies decided to stop being hippies. Hipsterism is dead.

They say that you know you're no longer an noob to indie music when you've seen a blog die. So thanks Carles. You've freed us from our noobdom.

EDIT: Oh wait, he's back.
