This is something some European hipster came up with thinking he was clever. Basically, this hipster saw that every day people get into arguments because they recognize that both "sides" of the argument are right and wrong in different ways. He realized this during an argument between two hipsters about who was a more "legit" hipster. This could be summed up with the problem that people can't decide whether when they are disagreeing or agreeing: they oscillate between the idea of "neither" and "both." Thus, schmöthe. It is meant to represent the fact that what each side is basically saying is it neither-ish and both-ish. We use the root of "both" because "both" is more conciliatory and helps hipsters get along.
